Vape Death causes, prevention tips
As the mysterious vape deaths continue, more data continues to be released about the various harmful chemicals found in vape devices and vape liquids. Some believe that Vitamin E acetate is an issue. Pesticides certainly can be an issue, as well as heavy metals.
All I can say is that I have personally tested every vapable thing on myself and my wife without issues. I've not received any reports from any customers of any issues aside from one person who seemed to be sensitive to DMSO. I do not use Vitamin E acetate and nothing I know of that I sell contains pesticides. EDIT: Some carts were harsh to vape, especially D in DMSO. I recently discovered that by adding a couple drops of vinegar to the cart & mixing it well, all the harshness disappeared!
Hot vapors from anything are harsh on the throat & lungs, so make sure not to inhale hot vapors. You can hold the vape pen button for max 2 seconds each time in order to prevent hot vapors from burning your insides.
NEVER vape if your cartridge has run dry. This "dry vaping" is very dangerous for your health. If you notice the vapor tastes very different from usual, make sure you are not dry-vaping the coils and thus inhaling lots of heavy metal vapors.
Furthermore, I would suggest limiting your vaping to the least amount possible. Nobody knows what is going on here, so caution is paramount.

Something strange is happening. I just discovered that in the past 4 days, most of my shipments have been untrackable by USPS' website. And a few shipments from a week ago are now listed as "arriving late."
I don't know if this is related to USPS in general or if it's related to my business. Regardless, it seems that there is not much point in trying to ship things at this moment until things are figured out here.
Certainly, other folks are reporting issues with USPS in recent days.
[UPDATE] as of Oct 9th, it seems the packages are moving thru the system again with tracking. I'm going to cautiously begin shipping low value things again to anyone who is willing to maybe deal with USPS delays.
[NEXT UPDATE] Oct. 10th: I found the USPS worker outside collecting the mail and asked him what was going on. He said that they have been short-staffed and it is possible they had mail sitting in a pile somewhere that they had not gotten to in a timely fashion.
