The FDA’s Ruling Is Said To Be A “Two-Year Countdown” On Vapor Products

Vapor StoreAugust 8, 2016 marked a historic day for vapers and vape shops everywhere as the FDA cracked down on the sale of new and old vaping products. Under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act the FDA (US Food and Drug Association) will now refer to all vaping products as “tobacco products.”

 

So what exactly does this mean for vaping and vape shops?

 

The ruling is being described by George Conley, president of the American Vaping Association, as a “two-year countdown to FDA prohibition of 99.9% of vapor products on the market.” That seems to be a strong claim to back, but he he stands by it and goes further to say that if the ruling is not reversed, the vaping industry will be minimal after two years.

 

To grasp this statement, let’s analyze what exactly is addressed under the ruling and how that will affect vaping shops everywhere:

 

Virtually Everything Is A Tobacco Product

 

This means that vaping products are now subject to regulation by the FDA, including nicotine-free and synthetic nicotine products. This bestows a limit on what products can and cannot be sold. Thus vape shops may not be able to sell your favorite product to you, now or in the near future.

 

Furthermore, if the product wasn’t commercially marketed on August 8 it cannot be legally introduced into the market. Modifications to current products can neither occur.

 

Changes For Vape Shop Owners/Employees

 

There are manifold new storeowner regulations concerning age confirmation, free samples, labeling, and even aiding customers with setup. You’ll want to learn more and update yourself on all the present regulations in effect as there will be surely more to come. The next big date is December 31, 2016 when manufacturers (including importers) must register their establishment(s) and distinct products in order to continue selling in the US.

European Study-Vaping Popular Way to Quit Smoking

vape shop camp wisdomIn a recent European study vaping products were found beneficial in the use of quitting tobacco cigarettes in place of traditional marketed Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT).

 

A press release from the American Vaping Association , dated June 27, 2016, stated a study was recently concluded by researchers at the University of Patras-Greece, Onassis Cardiac Surgery Centre-Greece and the French National Research Institute for Health and Medical Research. The findings of the research concluded that often tobacco smokers are sourcing vaping products as a means to quit or reduce their need for tobacco cigarettes. Information for the study was compiled from a 2014 Eurobarometer survey. The Eurobarometer survey gauges, among other subjects, configurations in the use of tobacco cigarettes and e-cigarettes. Data from the survey was compiled from a questionnaire filled out by 27, 460 European participants from 28 countries in the European Union.

 

The information gathered from the research found that 48.5 million Europeans have tried e-cigarettes, and 7.5 million participants consider themselves to still be current users. Among those who are still vape users 35.1% stated they quit smoking tobacco cigarettes, while another 32.2% stated they haven’t quit but have cut-back on their use of tobacco cigarettes. Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, principal investigator and co-author of the research explained in the press release, “These are probably the highest rates of smoking cessation and reduction ever observed in such a large population study.”

 

The scientists concluded two specific findings about vaping from their research. First overall fact was that vaping appeared to be a feasible way for smokers to completely quit smoking, or at least reduce their need for tobacco cigarettes. The second fact was that vaping use tended to be only among current and former tobacco smokers. The research concluded only 1.3% of non-smokers conveyed they used e-cigarettes containing nicotine, and a small 0.09% of non-smokers stated they smoked electronic cigarettes on a daily basis. There was no apparent continued use of e-cigarettes by non-smokers. This confirms other studies that concluded vaping is not a gateway to tobacco cigarettes.

 

In another study the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) concluded the same findings that vaping can be used to successfully quit smoking. The RCP recently finished their own study regarding e-cigarette use in the UK, “Nicotine without Smoke: Tobacco Harm Reduction.” From their research the RCP concluded that E-cigarettes are being sold as a consumer product, but are becoming popular as a way for smokers to quit or reduce their tobacco cigarette instead of using traditional Nicotine replacement therapies. The RCP stated although there may future findings of health risks associated with vaping products, but in today’s products the long-term health risks associated with e-cigarette use is unlikely to exceed 5% of the harm from tobacco cigarettes. They stated for overall public health, e-cigarettes, NRT’s and other non-tobacco products should be promoted as an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes.

 

The research strongly suggest vaping is valuable alternative for smokers to be able quit or lower their dependence on traditional tobacco cigarettes. Make the change today. Come to your local Camp Wisdom Vape Shop and see how much of a healthy difference vaping can make for your life.
