Beginner vapers have a lot on their plate. From figuring out which vape setup works best for them to wading through a ton of often contradictory vape information. To make the transition process easier, we have decided to create this value-packed vape resources list!
Included in this vaping resources list are vaping blogs, subreddits, and news sites that will keep you in the loop about all things vape-related. In addition to that, we’ve included popular YouTube channels that deal with vaping – they are a great resource for learning a bit more about new products that are constantly being introduced to the market, as well as for finding the information needed for troubleshooting your vape.
Of course, we did not forget about vaping advocacy. Considering how our way of life as vapers is constantly under attack by Big Tobacco and the government lobbyists, it’s important to support the organizations that are fighting for our right to vape. We have assembled a comprehensive list of such organizations below – make sure to support them by signing up, registering, or even donating whatever you can spare at the moment.
Finally, we also included a selection of online vape shops. These are predominately online shops where you can get subscription vape juice boxes. Of course, if you’re in the United States, The Kind Pen shop is the only place you should be getting your vape gear!
If you have an active and maintained vape blog you would like us to include on this list, send us a message using our contact page!
