What Is The Association Between Social Media and THC Vaping?

Social media is now popularly considered as the world within the world. A simple platform that emerged with the sole purpose of sharing photographs has turned into something else entirely. Advertisements are one of the primary causes of this change and Instagram’s incentivized promotions. One such example is the promotion of the Vaping industry and their products like THC vape carts, Vaping Oil, etc.


What is THC vaping?
THC is the primary psychoactive compound found in marijuana. It is also the substance that gets you “high.” In addition to giving a euphoric and docile feeling, THC also impacts pain, mood, and other emotions. It provides these effects through how it affects cannabinoid receptors in the brain.

Association With Social Media

A study conducted by Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health examines how cannabis vaporizer brands use social media for marketing their product to young impressionable adults.

Instagram has more than 100 million monthly active users, with at least a quarter between 13 and 24. In the United States in 2018, 72 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 17 said they used Instagram. Facebook does not allow paid advertising of illegal, prescription, and recreational drugs; however, posts to brand pages and profiles are not subject to this policy even though such pages are for marketing purposes.

Studies analyzed three popular cannabis brand pages for the content posted between October 2017 and October 2018.
Kandypens (731 posts)
Pax (71 posts)
G Pen (454 posts)

G Pen and Pax had public profiles with no age-verification process. The total reach of all three pages combined was almost half a million followers.
Three brands present themselves in different ways. Almost a third of posts by these brands tagged accounts of social media influencers or other notable individuals. More than two-thirds of the post depicts used products, but only 0.3% of the posts mentioned age restrictions.

Generally, G Pen posts images of musicians, video games, and youthful models in the hip, urban settings. Pax offers upscale domestic photos and relatively older models. Kandypens employs a retro “hippie” aesthetic with nearly all of its posts of young women, including sexualized images. Eighty-four percent of the posts containing people feature women. Most cannabis users in the United States are men, so the widespread use of female models may indicate that cannabis vaping companies attempt to reach a broader audience.


Severe social media usage by teenage demographics causes an unwanted influence over their buying patterns. It makes impressionable youngsters data points for sale, and for the first time in history, teenagers are openly able to buy harmful substances. In 2018, more than 3.5 million U.S. youth used e-cigarettes, which is 1 in 5 teenagers.

Side effects of THC vaping.
The awareness about the side effects of vaping took a rise after 2019. Health researchers began noticing an outbreak of several lung diseases linked to vaping and e-cigarettes in September 2019. By December, 2,561 cases of lung disease, often referred to as e-cigarette or vaping use-associated lung injury (EVALI), had resulted in hospitalizations and death.

Marijuana use has both short- and long-term side effects. Some of its short-term effects include:
Coordination issues
Distorted senses (such as sight, sound, touch)
Increased anxiety
Increased heart rate
Problems with focusing and short term memory

Longer-lasting side effects of marijuana are learning and sleep issues. Chronic users of marijuana may also experience effects-
Increased risk of addiction
Increased risk of chronic cough
Increased risk of schizophrenia
Learning and memory issues

Marijuana vaping is on the rise, particularly in tender age groups. For instance, the number of college students who vaped in the past month increased from 5.2% to 14% in just two years. Yet another 2022 study adds that the number of teens vaping cannabis in the last 30 days increased seven-fold from 2013 to 2020. Most Americans believe that vaping is less harmful than smoking, with 40% of the respondents indicating that marijuana was “not too” dangerous, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) estimated that approximately 20% of people who use marijuana develop substance use disorder. People who begin using marijuana, especially before they turn 18, are almost seven times more likely than adults to develop cannabis usage disorder.

Facebook should update its policies and consider including a mechanism for regulating brand pages that market cannabis and other related products and guidelines to protect the public’s health, such as age-gating and information on consumer safety. States with recreationally legal cannabis also restrict marketing practices, including unfounded health claims, promotional activities, and youth targeting. However, these rules do not restrict marketing products on the internet, which may require federal action. One should also keep following vape news for regularly updating themselves about THC Vaping and products alike.

Strong power, VOOPOO Argus GT II was shocked to market

VOOPOO, an internationally renowned e-cigarette brand, previously revealed that its high-end series Argus will release a new mod product. On April 11th, VOOPOO announced its product details on its brand’s official website, and this highly watched product was finally unveiled.

Strong outbreak   

For ultimate performance

Argus series is impressive because it continues to break mediocrity and creates the most professional classic equipment for vapers. Argus GT II not only ensures a comfortable grip, but also has a luxurious visual experience by using the industry’s innovative and ingenious metal body and exquisitely carved leather texture. At the moment of pressing the fire button, cloud booms like a volcanic eruption, bringing ultimate taste enjoyment and visual impact. Compared with the first generation products, its maximum power has been greatly improved to reach 200W high-power with constant voltage and stable output.

As a high-end product focused on people who pursue big vapor, high explosion, high quality, high performance and durability, ARGUS GT Ⅱ adopts the industry-leading high-strength metal shell. After thousands of tests, the team of VOOPOO have created a strong double-layer waterproof, dust-proof, antifreeze and anti-collision multiple safety protection mod device, which easily deals with various extreme outdoor environments and it is as hard and durable as volcanic rock.

Innovative design  

Enhance the taste experience

As one of the most anticipated products, Argus GT II did not disappoint vapers.The MAAT TANK NEW is designed in the unique volcano crater structure which drains the condensate down and isolates it at the bottom. So as to better prevent the condensate from seeping into the mod device under different holding angles during use, it creates a new oil leakage proof experience for users.The two-way airway like volcano makes deep lung puffing more labor-saving, so that the direct air flow rate can be increased by 60%.The vapor outbreak is faster and more direct, and the utilization rate of e-liquid can be effectively improved. The bottom electrode POGO PIN design effectively reduces the contact impedance.

Taste experience has always been the most concerned topic for vapers. The newly released Argus GT II is equipped with TPP atomization platform, which not only brings a greater vapor experience, but also effectively maintains a strong taste. In addition, Argus GT II is equipped with two dedicated coils, which atomizes more delicately and fully for a multi-layered taste. Thus, users can enjoy the surging clouds and rich tastes.

Organic medicinal cannabis a huge opportunity for NZ

“New Zealand organically grown and manufactured medicinal cannabis products will be in huge demand internationally, taking the country’s newest industry to a whole new level in the future,” says Carmen Doran, chief executive of Helius Therapeutics.

Her comments follow the Government announcing a $32.2 million joint project with New Zealand’s largest and only organic certified medicinal cannabis grower, Puro, to accelerate the growth of the industry.

A key workstream will see New Zealand’s largest medicinal cannabis processor and manufacturer, Helius, working alongside Puro on research and development and the creation of an organic manufacturing road map.

“Our ambition is to take Puro’s organically produced high value biomass and manufacture it here in New Zealand to organic certification. Achieving both organically grown and organically manufactured will create a significant premium differentiation for Helius and other local medicinal cannabis companies as well,” says Ms Doran.

Puro and Helius will investigate the necessary steps to enable organic manufacturing in New Zealand, identifying the local cannabis industry’s requirements to meet a national organic manufacturing standard.

“We will help create a playbook for the entire industry to use. It will see Helius, and others, transition to organic manufacturing, after product certification and verification is established. We’ll also help create a roadmap on how best to get these premium products to market,” she says.

Helius and Puro’s commercial relationship is already well established. In January, the two companies signed a multi-million-dollar supply deal – New Zealand’s largest to date. Puro will supply Helius with over 10 tonnes of organic medicinal cannabis over the next five years, securing a local supply chain of premium, organic dried flower for the Auckland-based manufacturer.

“Helius is already extracting Puro’s medicinal cannabis. What’s more, following Puro’s latest harvest, a lot more South Island organic biomass will be processed in the coming months into Kiwi grown and manufactured medicines,” says Ms Doran.

While Puro is Australasia’s largest grower of medicinal cannabis and one of the world’s largest certified organic producers, Helius was New Zealand’s first medicinal cannabis business to achieve a GMP Licence for Manufacturing Medicines in July 2021 and will unleash its exporting strategy later this year.

Every New Zealand GP can now prescribe medicinal cannabis for any health condition.

“Right now, you can go to your doctor and get medicinal cannabis products that are New Zealand-made, and that’s really exciting for local patients. However, delivering both organically grown and organically manufactured Kiwi products will be a gamechanger in the future – personifying New Zealand’s ‘100% Pure’ image,” says Ms Doran.

Helius strongly believes the Government’s $13m contribution towards the five-year joint project led by Puro will turbocharge the entire local industry. All parties agree that the country’s creation of a ‘Genetic Breeding and Organic Production Handbook’ will significantly add to jobs, GDP, and export receipts.

The global medicinal cannabis market is expected to grow to over NZ$60 billion by 2025.

“Medicinal cannabis has the potential to become one of the country’s largest export earners. Importantly, this latest $32.2m investment will accelerate its growth and ensure a high-value industry for New Zealand. Equally, it will help deliver the highest quality products for patients here and overseas,” says Carmen Doran.

Malaysia regulates vaping with ‘historic’ gazette

Malaysia’s long-time ban on the sale of vaping products is set to end, saving thousands of lives every year, says leading local advocacy group MOVE (Malaysian Organization of Vape Entities).

Taking effect on 3 August, the regulation of vaping devices precedes the imminent legalization of vape sales. It follows years of campaigning by MOVE and other Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) supporters.

The Malaysian Government has now moved to gazette the Trade Descriptions (Certification and Marking) of Electronic Cigarette Devices Order 2022 under the Trade Descriptions Act 2011. Manufacturers and importers will need to ensure all devices are certified and labelled to show consumers that safety standards have been met and the products are safe to use. All e-liquids will need to be registered.

“This is historic news after a long-fought battle. It paves the way for a legalized market and safer products. Regulating vaping products, restricting sales to adults, and applying significant penalties to any breaches will help many more Malaysian smokers to quit deadly cigarettes,” says Samsul Kamal Ariffin, President of MOVE.

Mr Ariffin says in recent months there have been frustrating parliamentary delays in progressing the Tobacco & Smoking Control Bill – not helped by the pending general election. However, with the safety standards now gazetted, it sets in train the legalization of vapes sales.

“Regulating, not banning, vaping will not only save smokers lives it will generate much needed tax revenue for our country which is desperately needed post pandemic.

“This is not only good news for smokers and their loved ones, but every Malaysian will benefit from the extra revenue gained from vape manufacturing, importing and sales. Up until now it has been a black market with unapproved products not contributing tax and with no safety assurances,” he says.

MOVE pays tribute to the leadership of Malaysia’s Health Minister YB Khairy Jamaluddin who championed the Government’s decision to regulate the vape industry.

“The Government has done well in preparing the legislation and regulation of products deemed 95% less harmful than combustible tobacco. It fully understands that making safer nicotine products legally accessible is the only way to seriously reduce Malaysia’s unnecessarily high smoking rates,” says Mr Ariffin.

CAPHRA (Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates) agrees that Malaysia’s leadership on vaping will see the country’s smoking rates will dramatically fall.

“Malaysia will join 67 other progressive countries worldwide which have adopted regulatory frameworks on safer nicotine products. Importantly, all of them have subsequently registered a dramatic decline in smoking,” says Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of CAPHRA.

CAPHRA says effective advocacy from Malaysian consumer groups was key to the Government’s decision last year to legalise liquid nicotine and move forward with regulation.

“We’re particularly proud of our member organisation MOVE and Samsul’s tireless advocacy over many years. The 3rd of August is worthy of a big celebration and will be well noted across the Asia Pacific region. Vaping bans fail badly – as Australia is discovering the hard way,” says Ms Loucas.

2500 puffs for a Cube Box

An average e-juice bottle is 1 millilitre. A single millilitre contains around 100 puffs. One hundred puffs are about ten cigarettes. So, 2 millilitres of vape juice is the equivalent of a single pack of cigarettes in terms of smoking/vaping. Therefore, 1 Cube Box disposable for 2500 puffs saves you about 12 to 13 packs of cigarettes!

XPLLO pod system with dual coil design for ultimate customized vaping exprience

XPLLO pod system is a new product created by ALD group recently. It features its dual coil design, 2ml pod capacity, Type-c charger, three gears power adjustment, and1.5/0.9 Ohm coils.

XPLLO 2 in 1 pods vape mesh coil& icot smart button extra durability

Dual coil design

There are 2 kinds of coils for choosing for this pod vape, they are iCot cotton coil and mesh Coil, and there are 1.5/0.9 Ohm coils for choosing, which is a big advantage to make the vaping experience more customizable and more pleasant. Each type of coil comes with a different vaping experience.

Dual coil design

What are the merits of the cotton coil? Cotton for vaping is heat-resistant, a necessary quality since it is used to wick heating coils. It’s also ideal for absorbing e-liquid and funneling it to your coils, and its neutral flavor ensures pure, unadulterated flavor. Most disposables take use of cotton coil and they work perfectly.

As to the mesh coil, one key advantage to mesh coils is that they fire or “ramp up” more quickly than standard coils. This makes for a more efficient, powerful hit that delivers a good dose of cloud and flavor.

2ml pod capacity

2ml is more than enough for 1 day’s vaping need for normal vapes. A heavy vaper will use a 2ml bottle for about a day. Moderate vapers will get about two full days of use, while casual vapers could enjoy it for up to a week.

So 1 pod of XPLLO will be enough for most vapers’ daily use. It’s durable and practical.

Three gears power adjustment

The smart button enables you to enjoy different levels of power including 11w, 13w and 15w.

Three gears power adjustment

Low power makes your e-juice more durable while high power makes the vaping performance more prominent. No matter you enjoy large vapor or small vapor, it’s suitable for you.



XPLLO pod system is a comprehensive pod vape for the different needs of vapers. It’s customizable and fits different preferences for vapor amount, taste richness and heating efficiency. It’s indeed a versatile pod vape for a premium vaping experience.

VAPORESSO Rebrands with New Logo, Bringing More Focus to Vapers

VAPORESSO has unveiled a new brand image at VAPEXPO in Lille.

“This is an evolution for us. By establishing a clear identity built on innovation, perseverance and empathy, we hope to transcend the uncertainty of these times.” Thalia Cheng, CMO of VAPORESSO, said during the launch event on 10th April 2022.

VAPORESSO’s new logo: inspired by vapers, designed for vapers




VAPORESSO’s new logo features “V” at the forefront, encircled behind by the letter “O.”

 O, vapor ring, joy, love and hope

At the surface level, the “O” represents a vapor ring that opens up.  On a deeper level the “O” also represents the joy, love and hope VAPORESSO seeks to bring to its customers.

V, vapers know better.   

The “V” is a symbol of the passion, spirit, attitude and conviction in their community, that VAPORESSO hopes to continue to emulate.

The development of the new branding process took about one year, according to Thalia; it involved massive surveys and focus groups, data analysis, creative and design work.

“Vaping is not just a fad, it’s a culture, a lifestyle that you choose to live, an attitude that you use to interact with the world. In our new logo we hope to capture the spirit of vapers and vaping culture, to express our passion and commitment in serving the vaping community,” said Thalia.

Built by vapers, for vapers

Founded in 2015, VAPORESSO has become a major innovator in the vaping industry. The company has gained fans from more than 60 countries with its popular vape kits.

When speaking of the company’s journey, Jimmy Hu, Vice President of VAPORESSO said: “Our chairman and CEO Simon Lai was a smoker for 11 years, before turned to vaping. When we started VAPORESSO, we had a big dream to make switching to vaping as easy as possible for everyone.”.

Vaping as a style

There is no doubt that in vaping culture, style counts.  VAPORESSO understands that for many, vaping kits aren’t just a device for nicotine satisfaction- they’re also an extension of one’s personality.

“For us, style goes beyond the superficial, the seasons, and the trends.  It is found in the heart. It is a lifestyle that you choose to live, an attitude that you use to interact with the world. Our products are forged from their desires, designed only for them,” says Jimmy.

Backing up the commitment to style, VAPORESSO  won a Red Dot design award in 2019, and a CMF design award in 2021.

Technology as art

Backed by parent company and world’s largest vaping manufacturer SMOORE International, and owning 1,000 patents and counting, VAPORESSO is no doubt a creator in the vaping industry.

With $450 million in annual R&D investment and five leading laboratories researching the delivery of flavors, nicotine satisfaction, and device performance, the firm is still breaking new ground.

Recently, VAPORESSO introduced their latest kits, the GEN 200, 80S and GEN FIT at VAPEXPO.

The new GEN 200 and 80S takes significant improvements on the already popular GEN family.  The kits are 20% smaller and 40% lighter than their predecessors in the GEN series, and are now the lightest dual-battery kits on the market. The DTL kits also feature key improvements, including a top-filling iTank, AXON chipset and a comfortable grip.


The GEN 200 and GEN 80S (VAPORESSO)


VAPORESSO’s new MTL device, the GEN FIT makes it much easier for beginners to switch to vaping. The draw and button activation mode make vaping more straightforward than ever, and the new MTX atomizing core platform with Pulse Mode delivers pure flavors and high nicotine satisfaction.

NZ engineers to drive better outcomes for cannabis patients

New Zealand’s largest medicinal cannabis company, Helius Therapeutics, has launched an industry collaboration with the University of Canterbury’s Engineering Faculty.

It sees Helius working together over the coming months with Biomedical, Mechanical, and Mechatronics Engineering students supervised by Distinguished Professor Geoff Chase.

Prof Geoff Chase

The final-year student project centres around how accurately the likes of stress, anxiety and chronic pain can be measured using wearable devices. Traditionally, assessments and medical impacts on such health conditions are measured subjectively by patients themselves and thus variability can cloud the results because patients may feel differently on any given day.

Now, four final-year UC Engineering students will assess the measurability potential of common wearable technologies, such as FitBit, Garmin and Google watches. They will evaluate algorithms, consider clinical needs, and develop methods to download data.

While all New Zealand doctors can now prescribe medicinal cannabis for any condition, healthcare professionals are crying out for more scientific data to support their own learning journey and curiosity.

“Helius is committed to providing clinical evidence to prescribers and leading substantive research into quality-of-life measures for patients. Providing absolute data to healthcare professionals will ultimately help improve much-wanted patient access to medicinal cannabis,” says Carmen Doran, Chief Executive of Helius Therapeutics.

Professor Chase says final-year projects bring together the University of Canterbury’s research capabilities, talented and enthusiastic students, and challenges that industry needs to meet.

He says this collaboration seeks to potentially create a significant advance on the objectivity of measurements that can be made in clinical drug trials where cannabis would be effective.

“Importantly, it brings a nascent New Zealand industry together with our prior research experience. Students gain valuable experience to apply their engineering skills to real problems. At the same time, sponsoring industry partners make innovative and commercial strides knowing they’ve also added to the knowledge base of future graduates,” he says.

While this collaboration measuring stress, anxiety and sleep with wearable devices may be a first for the two organisations, Ms Doran and Professor Chase have worked together before.

Ms Doran studied at the University of Canterbury with Professor Chase, graduating with a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering awarded with Distinction. Together they published more than a dozen international scientific, engineering, and medical papers.

“It was 20 years ago exactly that Carmen was a student of mine in a similarly important final-year project. The outcomes of that project led to a major change in clinical practice in ICU care. It’s great to have her technical expertise and to work alongside the country’s first medicinal cannabis business to gain a GMP Licence to Manufacture Medicines,” says Professor Chase.

Mentoring the project with Professor Chase is Dr Rick Acland – Helius board member and senior adviser. Dr Acland AFRM (RACP) is one of New Zealand’s leading pain specialists, who has been a long-time consultant at both Christchurch’s Burwood Spinal Unit and Auckland Spinal Unit.

Helius has a state-of-the-art 8,800sqm research, medicines manufacturing and indoor cannabis cultivation complex in East Auckland. Now in itscommercialisation phase and delivering in the domestic market, Helius is set to export later this year.

“Innovation and collaboration are key to New Zealand creating world-leading efficacious, novel, and safe next-generation medicinal cannabis therapeutics. This collaboration with UC Engineering is a win-win-win – a win for students, a win for our company, and a win for New Zealand’s most exciting sunrise industry,” says Carmen Doran.
