    We are back with FOUR flavors, and we anticipate offering no more than 4 flavors at any given time. I have made changes to ALL the recipes. First - all the liquid is now 30/70 (approx), VG heavy, as opposed to 50/50 or 65/35. This will result in increased vapor production and better stability in today's sub-ohm environment. So much has changed since we started in June of 2013, we felt like we needed to change with the times. We have also made some very specific changes to each recipe:

    Globally, we have reduced or virtually eliminated the use of sweetener. This is due in part to the increased VG (which contributes sweetness). The reduction or elimination of sweetener has resulted in increased coil life across the entire line - the liquid just plain burns cleaner without the sweetener.

    We continue to made our own proprietary Naturally Extracted Tobacco (NET) and homemade vanilla flavoring. Due to natural variations in the tobacco leaves/vanilla pods themselves, there is some natural variation in the finished liquid.

    The Virus is more like Katy's Virus - more tobacco'ey, or tobacco'ish - with the same great maple/sweet finish that all of you have come to love. The Virus will be offered 24/7/365 for all of you that intend to take it on as an ADV. #TheVirus #infected

    Wakonda is back 24/7/365. First it is noticeably thicker with the increased VG. Like The Virus, we have increased the level of tobacco (slightly). The increase in tobacco is less noticeable as compared to the change in The Virus, but the additional tobacco flavoring has definitely improved the vape overall. #WakondaForever #MayTheSacredVaporNeverDissipate

    We will always have a vanilla vape in our lineup of (4) flavors - presently we are offering Custard's Last Stand. Of note, this revision of CLS is more like Frenilla than it is like CLS since it employs our in-house DOUBLE FOLD vanilla extract. The cost of the double fold extract is more than $400/gallon at cost - no kidding - the cost of vanilla has more than doubled since 2013. Despite significant increases in cost we maintained the $24.99/60ml bottle price point. #CustardsLastStand #CLS

    Finally, we will be rotating a 4th flavor - ALL old favorites (presently Betelgeuse) that have been released previous to 8-8-2017 (per FDA regulation). Some of these offerings were not widely distributed, and we are reworking ALL the recipes... so you will see lots of innovation in this space. Once Betelgeuse is depleted we will proceed to the next flavor in the rotation... for the 4th spot we are prioritizing REAL fruit vapes (not candy).

    I have much more to share but this has already turned into a long email so I am going to cut this one short. We are looking forward to serving you and your vaping needs. If you need support, you can contact Clark directly via email at OR visit our OFFICIAL Facebook group at

    Being that Frenilla was one of my favorites, I'm really curious to try it when it gets to me. Any thoughts as to whether I let it steep, or is it good to go when my order arrives?

    I try to pre-steep as much as I can, usually at least a week - 10 days.... but the vanilla vapes can take (much) longer to reach their true potential.
