Frequently Asked Questions

Company
What or who is Vape Canyon?

We're a specialized vape store, e-juice manufacturer, raw material supplier and accredited living wage employer located in the heart of New Zealand, Wellington.

Established in 2016 when sub-ohming became popular we had one simple goal in mind, to make vaping more affordable and accessible to the masses. At the time 30mls used to cost $30 and vaping was similarly priced to consuming analogs. After months of investment and building up Vape Canyon we launched with New Zealand's very first 120mls for $20NZD that pushed the market price down and allowed ordinary Kiwis (and some Australians) to keep more of their hard earned money inside their pocket!

Today we're still the local leader in affordable premium e-juices with prices as low as $18 for 120mls, even lower if you're a Club Canyon member and we also specialize in supplying raw materials and flavorants through flavourforest.nz

E-juice
What's the lifespan of your e-juices?

The lifespan of our e-juices, also known as vape juices or e-liquids, can vary depending on the ingredients and storage conditions. Typically our e-juices have a shelf life of 2 to 3 years from the date of manufacture if stored properly. Here are some factors that can affect the lifespan of e-juices:

  • Storage: Proper storage is essential for maintaining the quality of e-juices. They should be stored in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat.

  • Nicotine Strength: Higher nicotine strength e-juices tend to have shorter lifespans. When nicotine is exposed to heat, light, and air, it can oxidize, leading to changes in the colour and flavour of the e-juice. Oxidation can also result in a harsher taste.

  • Flavours and Additives: Some flavors and additives may degrade faster than others, affecting the taste and quality of the e-juice.

To determine if an e-juice is still good to use, check for changes in flavour, harshness or consistency. If the e-juice is harsh give it a shake for 30 seconds and try again, if it's still harsh or has an off taste, it may be time to replace it. Always check the expiration date on the packaging.

To maintain the quality and extend the lifespan of higher nicotine strength e-juices store them in a dark, cool environment to minimize exposure to light, heat, and air.

Help my e-juice tastes harsh!

Empty your tank, shake your bottle for 30 seconds, and refill your tank. This usually resolves the issue, If not there are several reasons why your e-juice may taste harsh:

  1. Nicotine Strength: High levels of nicotine can cause a harsh throat hit. If you find your e-juice too harsh, consider using a lower nicotine strength.

  2. Flavourings: Some flavourings, particularly strong or concentrated ones, can contribute to a harsh taste.

  3. Oxidation: If your e-juice has been exposed to heat, light, or air, nicotine may oxidize, resulting in a harsher taste. Proper storage in a cool, dark, and airtight container can help prevent this.

  4. Device Settings: Incorrect settings on your vaping device, such as too high a wattage or voltage, can lead to a harsh vaping experience. Adjusting your device settings to suit the e-juice may help.

  5. Dry or Burnt Coil: If your vaping device's coil is dry or burnt, it can result in a harsh taste. Make sure your device is properly maintained and that the coil is saturated before use.

  6. Expired E-Juice: Old or expired e-juice can develop a harsh taste due to changes in the ingredients over time. Check the expiration date and replace the e-juice if necessary.

If you continue to experience harshness, try adjusting the nicotine strength, PG/VG ratio, or experimenting with different flavor profiles until you find a smoother option.

My e-juice is changing colour is it gone off?

If your e-juice is changing colour, it is not necessarily expired. This colour change is often perfectly normal and is usually due to the nicotine in the e-juice oxidizing over time and. As nicotine oxidizes, it can cause the e-juice to change colour, typically becoming darker, starting from a yellow hue to a dark orange hue. Here are some key points to consider:

  • Nicotine Oxidation: Exposure to light, heat, and air can cause nicotine to oxidize, which may result in a change in colour.

  • Flavour Interactions: Some flavourings may also contribute to the color change due to interactions with other ingredients, including nicotine.

  • Storage Conditions: Proper storage can help minimize colour changes. Store your e-juice in a cool, dark place in an airtight container to reduce exposure to light and air.

While color changes in e-juice are typically normal, you should still monitor the taste and consistency. If the e-juice tastes off or is harsh, it may be time to replace it. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines for storage and usage to maintain the quality of your e-juice.

Where is the e-juice made and why is it so cheap?

Our e-juice is made in New Zealand, and it's affordable because we want to help you save more of your hard-earned money for the things that matter most to you. By manufacturing our products in-house and minimizing overhead costs, we're able to offer you the best possible prices. This approach allows us to maintain high quality while keeping the cost to you as low as possible.

What ingredients are used in your e-juice?

Our e-juice is made with the following ingredients to provide a smooth and enjoyable vaping experience. The main ingredients in our e-juice include:

  1. Vegetable Glycerin (VG): A common base ingredient that provides a smooth, thick vapour. VG is derived from plant oils and contributes to the production of vapour clouds.

  2. Propylene Glycol (PG): Another common base ingredient that carries flavours effectively and provides a stronger throat hit. PG is a food-grade compound used in many consumable products.

  3. Flavourings: We use a variety of food-grade flavorings to create a wide range of taste experiences. These flavours are carefully selected to ensure they are safe for vaping and deliver a consistent, enjoyable flavor.

  4. Nicotine (optional): Some e-juices contain nicotine in varying strengths, while others are nicotine-free. We use high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade nicotine in our products.

Our commitment to quality ensures that all ingredients are carefully sourced and blended to create e-juices that offer a satisfying and consistent vaping experience.

What's the best way to store my e-juices?

The best way to store your e-juices is to keep them in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. Here are some additional storage tips:

  • Use Airtight, Opaque Containers: Store your e-juices in airtight, opaque containers to protect them from light and air, which can cause oxidation and affect the quality.

  • Maintain a Stable Temperature: Avoid storing e-juices in areas with extreme temperature fluctuations, as this can impact the quality and lifespan of the liquid.

  • Keep Away from Strong Odours: Store e-juices away from strong-smelling substances, as they can absorb odours and potentially affect the flavour.

  • Keep E-Juices Upright: Store e-juices in an upright position to prevent leaks and spills.

Additionally, it's essential to keep e-juices out of reach of children and pets at all times. Nicotine-containing e-juices can be harmful if ingested, so proper storage ensures safety for everyone in your home. By following these storage tips, you can maintain the quality and longevity of your e-juices.
