    I just ordered some new hardware and liquid from CanVape for the first time but the juices all have an awful taste.

    One of the first things I noticed was I could actually smell the liquid before taking it out of the bag.. this struck me as odd since I've never been able to smell it unless I uncap a bottle. Kind of a gross, chemical smell.

    So I filled my new Ego Stardust, take a few hits and at first I was all excited about how much better the vapor is but all I can taste is the gross smell I mentioned before.. Thinking it was maybe just the juice or the Stardust I fill up a Kanger T3 with Export A and got the exact same taste.

    Anyone have experience with VapenJuice from CanVape? I noticed it was cheaper than the liquid I usually buy.. is it like cheap/value liquid or something?

    Got 50ml of this stuff in total.. Hoping it wasn't a waste. Right now I'm pouring all my new juices back into their bottles and refilling my hardware with my usual stuff.

    Do I need to steep this stuff or something?

    Cigarettes taste gross to me now, but I swear this weird chemical taste is even worse.

    Definitely let it steep if you don't enjoy it at first (could be said for all juices) and then give it another go. The vapenjuice is their "value lines" (Source: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/canada-forum/437858-good-juice-canvape.html) so you may have gotten some "Nasty samples" like the guy in that thread. (Everyone in that thread hates vapenjuice)

    It may need to steep...I have never tried that vendor but HATE the weird chemical taste that the least expensive juices have ( I think its the quality of flavors they use)...trying to help you get those 5 posts

    5 posts! I'm free!

    Yeah, that thread was the first place Google brought me.. Thank god I didn't start with this juice I would probably still be smoking!

    How long does steeping usually take? Few days? A week or two?

    I got one sampler from Halo but I'm kinda nervous to try it now.

    Cant wait for crap juice to burn off coil..

    Hi DudeMan and welcome to ECF. Canvape is my main vape supplier, but I have never tried their juice. I make my own now so probably never will. Letting this stuff steep for a week is a good idea. Because of the chemical smell, you might try leaving the bottles open for a few days to let some evaporation happen. I've bought inexpensive juice before and never had to do that, but I've read that other people have.

    Juice that you like can be hard to find. IMO, if you like half of the ones you try you're doing good. I used to buy 10 ml bottles to test before buying larger ones. Best of luck with it :thumb:

    It depends. Sometimes a few days does it, sometimes weeks. It doesn't work for everything either. You just have to try it and see if it does it for you.

    Halo juices usually don't need to steep. I started out with them and I liked most of what I got. What sampler pack did you get?

    I buy mostly from Mt.Baker now. Some flavors need to steep and some are great right from the mailbox.

    Juice is crazy stuff. At first I was loving Wisconson Frost from Red Oak. Then I went away from that flavor. I don't know what changes. Now I'm liking several of the Seduce Juice line from seducejuice.com like Snake Oil , Snake Venom, and Rapture. Just nice. JD Vapor Nana's Bread, mmmmm. Black Cloud's "Flat Line" is another fav. Also kind of liking there Apple Melon, I think there is a touch of cinnamon in there. I won't bother with the bottles that get ignored. Too depressing.

    Oh and you can speed up the steeping process. I have heat steeped and it works wonders. If your not familiar with heat steeping here's a quick explanation. Run some tap water until it gets very hot (or put a mug of water in the microwave to heat up). Not so hot it's boiling, just very hot to touch. Make sure the mug (or bowl if you like) has enough water to submerge the bottle up to its neck. Take the cap off and the dripper, too. Place the bottle in the hot water and leave it there until the water cools. Then replace the dripper and cap and shake the bloody hell out of the bottle. Repeat the process as many times as you want. I usually do this about 3-5 times and give the juice another taste to check for improvements.

    The problem here is that OP is in Canada. Aren't they stopping e-liquids at the border? He may need an in-country inexpensive supplier.

    Hm might have to try that.

    The Halo is probably fine, I got three bottles of VapenJuice (fuark) and a sampler of Halo. It doesn't have the gross chemical smell the other ones have.

    Still trying to work this taste out of the wick.. bleh

    @cANADA, In my experience, I bought a juice that I absolutely hated. The taste was terrible from the first puff. I put it in my cabinet and just worked on the bottle I had. I bought a couple of other flavors and I noticed the taste was changing on them almost every time. SO I tried the bad juice again. I loved it. I believe the change was caused more by my taste buds than any steeping effect. Your taste buds undergo major changes when you quit smoking and I know what I tasted in the beginning is different than what I taste now. So give it a few days and try it again. Just my 2 cents.:2c:

    Quit smoking back in August, taste budders are adjusted to spec.

    After putting my old RY4 in the Stardust and reefing on it all night its just starting to taste better.

    I'll keep the caps off the Vapenjuice bottles for a few days and see if it makes any difference. If they don't get any better a month from now will probably toss.

    The reality is that there is a lot of crappy tasting juice out there. Some vendors seem to only sell crappy tasting juice, while others seem to sell juice that taste great no matter what the 'flavor.' To me there is nothing worse than getting a new order of juice that tastes like nail polish remover smells, and a large amount of them do to me.

    I've tried the whole steeping thing, and not sure it makes a lick of difference. I left a couple of bottles uncapped for four days, and any change in flavor was marginal at best. If I have to leave a bottle sitting for days in order to enjoy the flavor, I find a new vendor, pure and simple.

    I must admit, I'm a bit torn on the topic of "steeping" after reading this thread. I could've sworn that a few of the flavors that I bought and mixed tasted better after about a week or so. But as Sucker_dad mentioned, it may have just been my taste buds adjusting to the flavors. I'll continue to steep when it's convenient, just to see if I have different results.

    Some people swear that steeping works. Maybe it only works for certainly juices, but I've never had the least amount of luck with it. Even if it does work, do I really wanna order juice, wait 5 days to get it, then wait another week to use it?
  19. partyannimal

    partyannimal Ultra Member Verified Member ECF Veteran

    Yeah, that's kinda my thoughts too. But since I'm still fairly new to juice vendors, it's pretty much trial and error for me no matter what lol.

    Well after leaving the caps off all night the chemical smell is gone and the juices are starting to taste better..

    Now I'm just fighting with this Kanger T3, worked flawlessly last night and this morning but now its leaking everywhere. Oi vey.
