W elcome to the Vapour Magazine! As usual, we have crammed this issue with news and features that surround the wonderful world of vaping. As you all know, the vaping industry took quite a blow in recent weeks, with the news headlines stating that vaping was a cause for the recent deaths of several individuals who had consumed THC within a vape device in the USA. This of course was aimed directly at the vape industry with no profound evidence, which resulted in propaganda headlines from leading news channels that misrepresented the information to an “all out” blame on e-cigarettes. Thankfully, we are an industry that can fight back with the expertise to challenge any such misinformation, as this was dealt with by the much respected John Dunne, the UKVIA and Evapo’s Andrej Kuttruf. The level of commitment put in by John and Andrej has now lead to the industry to become more relaxed after realising that the press have again merely had a hopeless and unintelligent stab at the industry. The damage was minimal and our mission of encouraging smokers to switch to a safer alternative is not hindered in any way, shape or form. It is hard to believe that we are already in the third quarter of 2019, with so much action from the expo scene and still more to come. The Hall of Vape was a legendary addition to the success of the organiser’s portfolio, as they gear up for the second instalment of the show for 2019. The CBD and Hemp expo’s second instalment was a huge success, 180 brands exclusively showcased their products in Europe’s largest dedicated CBD event. I would personally like to congratulate the CBD and Hemp expo team for a great job on both the event and the magazine they produce to represent the fast growing genre. I was very pleased to attend and report on a very sophisticated product launch at the British Grand Prix, as Vype launch their new e-pod and also to mark their celebration of partnering with the McLaren F1 racing team. I sure hope you enjoy that particular article as much as I enjoyed writing it! If you would like further information on any aspect of the industry, feel free to get in touch with us and we will of course be happy to provide factual information on regulation, compliance, science product safety and event information. Furthermore, if you have any suggestions or comments, feel free to contact me directly vai my contact details below: Paul Blythe Editor In Chief T: 01924 760124 E: 4 Vapour Magazine NEWS UKVIA Response to the Announcement on Vaping by President Trump By Dan Marchant Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar meets with President Donald Trump to announce plans to ban most flavoured e-liquids in the USA ensure those smokers stay switched.
