Shelf Life of CBD Oil

What is the shelf life of hemp oil

The short answer is, if stored correctly, an unopened bottle of our hemp oil will last 14 months from the date of production. The long answer is there are several factors that can influence the shelf life of hemp oil. The major ones are how the seed is pressed, how the oil is packaged and how the oil is stored.

Sealed jugs devoid of oxygen extend shelf life

The oxygen free environment doesn’t stop at the pressing stage, we continue it right through to the bottling stage where the oil is maintained oxygen free and then the last bit of space in the top of the filled bottle is also replaced with nitrogen before the bottle is sealed with a foil topper and the lid is put on. These extra steps ensure that the oil will remain fresh for a long period of time after it has been placed in the bottle, literally for many months allowing us to set a best before date of 14 months from the date of manufacture.

Cold storage of the oil extends shelf life

Keep your oil cold. While we maintain an environment that is consistently lower than 15 C for short term storage of the products, we highly recommend you storing your oil in the freezer for longer term storage. One of the many wonderful benefits of hemp oil is that it will not turn to a solid at the temperatures reached in your home freezer so you can keep you oil there and it will still pour for you. There may be some separation of the naturally occurring waxes but this will just result in some cloudiness and is not something to be concerned about. It will not affect flavour or consistency when the oil warms.

Keep your oil cold and out of the light

The two things you need to be aware of after you get your oil is that you should keep it cool and out of the sunlight. Store the oil in the freezer for long term storage and in the fridge in the short term. The oil can withstand moderate temperatures, for instance while being shipped, without any significant degradation. For long term storage, just ensure you maintain a cold temperature.

Be Safe When You Vape Abroad With This Travel Advice

Be Safe When You Vape Abroad

With the summer holiday season upon us, it’s certain that some of our valued customers will be thinking about jetting off for a bit of sun. Vaping is becoming largely accepted as a way to give up smoking, but enjoying an e-cigarette abroad can be confusing, as many countries are vague about the regulations concerning their use.
We suggest the following advice if you are planning to travel abroad with your vape kit this year.

Before you go

You need to check the legal status of e-cigarettes where you are headed. Regulations vary from country to country, so it’s important to know the law. In some countries like Thailand, Egypt, Singapore, and Argentina vaping is banned, so you could end up having your e-cigarette confiscated or paying a hefty fine if caught vaping there, in extreme cases you could be sent to jail.
Other places like Australia, New Zealand and some Scandinavian countries have restricted use, particularly if you use a liquid containing nicotine. In the USA restrictions vary from state to state.
It is critical to research where you are traveling to, to make sure you don’t fall foul of the law.


As the popularity of e-cigarettes has taken off, many vapers have been left uncertain of the rules about using their e-cigarettes on board planes, particularly if they don’t create clouds of vapour. The UK’s most popular airlines; Ryanair, Easy Jet, British Airways and Thomas Cook do not allow vaping on their planes, even in the toilets!
E-cigarettes should be stored in your carry-on baggage; they are strictly prohibited in checked (hold) baggage. This applies for both domestic and international flights.
Check the vaping rules at the airports, not only where you will depart, but also more importantly where you land. Most airports will state the vaping policies on their websites. Currently, using e-cigarettes is banned inside all UK airports.


When making your way through airport security, unpack your kit and scan it separately. Remember to stick to the 100ml liquid rule and pack your e-liquid in the clear plastic bags. Larger bottles can be packed into your hold luggage. Again, research your destination, as e-liquids that contain nicotine are banned in some countries. If you stick to the general rules about what is and is not permitted to take through security, you should not encounter any difficulties.


Whether you’re heading off for a long-weekend city break or a month long backpacking trip you’ll need to consider what hardware to bring along with you. We recommend a removable battery device with a separate charger, or two batteries if you’re travelling for a longer period of time. Batteries and Power Delivery


Make sure you have enough e-liquid with you to last until your return. Many foreign countries don’t have the same level of content safety testing for products that we have in the UK, so stock up here before you go with your favourite Electro flavours to guarantee quality standards have been adhered to.

Local attitude

Attitudes towards vaping in the UK are fairly liberal but be prepared to deal with different opinions when travelling abroad. Cloud chasers may experience some confused glances from the locals so try and gauge the situation before chasing huge clouds. Vaping is now regarded as a much safer alternative to smoking. Unfortunately, not all countries are as forward thinking as the UK, so vaping abroad can be confusing and the laws and regulations are often unclear and can vary from place to place. It is important to do some research before you go on holiday, so you are armed with the facts to stop any problems occurring. A little time spent researching before you jet off, will mean a relaxing and enjoyable holiday for all.
We value our customers highly so please travel safe during the holiday season.

50ml 0% Nicotine Short Fill E liquid Bottles Now Available With Nic Shots

These 6 exciting new flavours are now available in 50ml 0% nicotine bottles, no need for dozens of 10ml bottles cluttering up your life anymore, well apart from the 10ml Nic shot you will need to add nicotine to your e-liquid to get your desired nicotine strength.

The way this works is like this, you purchase a 50ml bottle of E-Liquid, then if you want it to be 3mg then purchase 1 x 10ml Nic shot here(10ml 18mg Nic Shot) then add that to your 50ml bottle to get 60ml of 3mg nicotine strength e-liquid.

If you want 6mg then purchase 2 x 10ml Nic Shots here(10ml 18mg Nic Shot) add these to your 50ml bottle and you will get 6mg strength e-liquid.

It really is that easy, and so much more eco friendly not to have your life and pockets full of 10ml bottles.

How to Understand the EU TPD, or How To Herd Cats. . . . . . . .


How to Understand the EU TPD, or How To Herd Cats!

The TPD (Tobacco Products Directive) fiasco has been going on for a considerable time, but now we are close to the implementation date when it will be passed into UK law.
The arguments have raged on and on, but we just want to inform our customers how the new regulations will affect their vaping lifestyle.

The main points are:

1) The maximum strength of Nicotine liquids will be limited to 2% (20mg/ml).
2) The maximum size of refill bottles containing Nicotine liquid will be 10ml.
3) The maximum capacity of any tank/clearomiser etc will be 2ml.
4) There will be a transition period between May 20th 2016 and May 20th 2017.

All of the above will have to be tested and notified to the EU in order to gain an EC ID number which will allow them to be sold.
Below this brief explanation is the Guidance page from the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) which is
the organisation responsible for implementing the regulations in the UK. Below that is a copy of Section 6 of the statutory instrument
which was laid before Parliament and which forms the new UK regulations.
It’s easy to see just how much bureaucracy and expensive testing of products will be involved in order to keep products on the market
and/or to introduce new products.

Transition Period.

Products falling under TPD Regulations on sale before May 20th 2016 must be notified by November 20th 2016. If they are not notified,
Retailers will be allowed to sell off existing stock until May 20th 2017, but only if it was produced prior to November 20th 2016.
Any products that have not been notified must then be withdrawn from sale on May 20th 2017.

So, the products containing Nicotine, including the larger than 10ml sizes, will remain on sale through to May 20th 2017.

Supplies of higher strength Nicotine liquid (higher than 2% {20mg/ml}) will inevitably begin to run down leading up to May 20th 2017,
as will supplies of Nicotine liquid in bottles with a capacity greater than 10ml; that is of course, unless changes which are being called
for not just by manufacturers/retailers/vapers, but by members of the House of Lords, are introduced.

Advertising and the media.

Virtually all mainstream advertising or promotion of ecigarettes/vaping, TV/Radio/Online, will be banned from May 20th 2016. This was heavily
criticised in a House of Lords debate, Vaping and the TPD discussed in the Lords Grand Committee 10/05/16, a bit long but worth watching.

All in all, you might not see many changes initially, but over the next 12 months, you will see just how disproportionate the regulations are.

Great News & Great Reviews

CBD Customer Reviews


I thought I would share a couple of reviews from our customers who have been using our CBD Vape Juice and our newest product, CBD Oral Tincture.

I’ll let their words tell their stories.

My Name is Rose, and I am a resident of Walcot St in Bath.
My problems started after an accident at the age of 14 that damaged my spine to the extent that over the last 3 decades it has turned into a Degenerative spine condition. It is in-operable and I am in constant chronic pain, which never leaves me, day and night.
At the time of the accident, which happened 54 years ago, (I am now 68) the only technology without invasive surgery was X-Rays, and they just did not show the extent of the damage to my spine. Only after an MRI scan much later in life did they find the whole story out and by then it was too late to operate, and the only course of action available to me through the health services was pharmaceutical strength pain killers, which left me numb to the world and somewhat non-productive, leading to times of depression for both me and my family.
Over the last 10 years my quality of life has plummeted, as has my health still further as I have also been diagnosed with ME (Myalgia Encephalopathy) and Fibromyalgia, and just the little things like being unable to pick up my grandson, or even just get up in the morning, has really depressed me and my family.
A soon as I heard that the team at the Electro Tobacconist were starting to sell CBD products, I contacted them and started researching, and decided that the Oral Tincture would be best for me.
After a week of daily use, I am definitely noticing very positive effects, less pain, less anxiety, and I am finally able to relax and escape the vicious circle of pain that has debilitated me for so long.
I am noticing no bad side effects and there is definitely less stress on me and my family.
Now, at the age of 68 I just wish I could have known and used CBD’s earlier in my life, as it would have lessened the last 5 decades of constant pain. Now I can actually look forward to the next day, and the next day after that, which I can’t remember happening for so long.
If you would like to verify my story, I would be happy to be contacted via the team at The Electro Tobacconist, just contact them, and they will forward the enquiry to me.

And this next one is from Barry,

 I will start by giving you some background history about myself. I have been involved with boats since I was 15, and that led me to a career in the Royal Navy, and to where I have lived for the best part of the last 25years, on a narrow boat with my wife on the Kennet and Avon Canal.
Whilst serving in the Royal Navy, I had an accident in 1995 which left me with constant pain in my thighs and lower spine. Also, my work in the Royal Navy put me in contact with various hazardous activities and materials, which have led to various other ailments affecting me and adding to the constant pain. Being in pain for so long, and having doctors try to treat me every which way their expertise would allow, I was left with a life that was governed by pain killers, mainly morphine based, that once taken would not only incapacitate me for the day, but would not always guarantee taking the pain away. This led me down a road to depression, over-eating, drinking way too much alcohol and basically losing control of my life, I was not productive anymore, I couldn’t focus on anything, my family suffered and my whole way of life on the canal was put into question. Something had to be done differently, before it was too late.
One day someone asked if I had tried Cannabis to help deal with the pain. Now as a former Royal Navy officer, I had never used cannabis recreationally, so at first I was very wary, but I did try it, and it did deal with the pain very well, but, as with the morphine based pain killers, I was too stoned by the time the pain had gone to be productive and useful.
Last year, to help me quit cigarettes I started vaping, and as I already knew the staff at the Electro Tobacconist, I went there to get my electronic cigarette, and to this day I have not smoked a cigarette, but this led to a problem of how to use cannabis without tobacco, so I started to investigate the availability of obtaining cannabis oil to add to my vape liquid. About the same time the Electro Tobacconist started to sell CBD vape liquid, and suddenly the answer was in sight, all the good of cannabis, but without the THC, so no ruined day, and I could continue my day as normal, and I can tell you that it’s been years since I could say that. The unique thing about the Electro Tobacconist is that they are selling at affordable prices to everyone, they have they’re recommended retail price, and all they ask is that you pay as much as you are able to afford towards that price, which is so refreshing these days. Just go and talk to them at the shop, they will listen, and they promise to make it available and affordable to everyone who needs it, they may look a little different but they are really nice, genuine people who want to help, and I can’t thank them enough.
They started me of on 500mg of CBD, and that same week my scooter broke down. Now I use the scooter every day to stay mobile, and without it I was worried that I would be stuck till it was fixed, but the usual panic and anxiety that this sort of situation usually brought on didn’t happen. Within a week of using the CBD vape juice I was less anxious and much abler to get my head round the situation, suddenly I was able to think it through and not let it take over my life, and then I realised that my constant companion, Pain, was not so intense either, and I could actually think about taking my dog for a walk, and a proper walk as well.
Now after about a month of using the CBD vape juice as and when I need it, I have stopped taking the morphine, I am able to keep focus without getting anxious, I am so much more mobile, whilst still having to use the scooter for long distances, I am able to walk further than I have for years, without being crippled by the pain. I cannot put over in words how much my quality of life has improved exponentially within such a short time, which improves everyone else’s lives around me as well, it has given me a chance to live again, rather than just existing.
I now feel so good that I have asked my Doctor to stop prescribing me any other pain killers, he has asked me to see how it goes but is not opposed to me using the CBD, as long as it works. I will be seeing him again soon and will update via Bing with another review here on the website.
I realise that my experience will be unique to me, but if you want to talk to me about any aspect of my use of CBD vape liquid, please either email the shop using this email, info@theelectrotobacconist.com, or call them at the shop on 01225-789-795, they will take your details and then pass them on to me and I’ll contact you, I will be more than happy to talk to you about my experience.

Canadian Vapers Question and Attack Poor Legislation and Thinking !

Vapers Fight Back

Canada showed the world what can happen when vapers band together and protest unjust and illogical laws. We reported how it took just 24 hours before a ridiculous piece of legislation attacking vaping was shelved indefinitely. People power makes anti-ecig campaigners scared because it casts a light on their lies and half-truths that aren’t being questioned elsewhere.

Blasting News has lambasted a couple of leading anti-vaping campaigners this week. Firstly they attacked pharma-funded Stanton Glantz in California and then they turned on the UK’s Martin McKee. “Despite overwhelming evidence of e-cigarettes being at least 95% safer than cigarettes,” they write, “public manipulation continues.” They reported that when confronted on radio to state what the most dangerous thing about vaping is, he replied: “They keep people smoking cigarettes.”

Like McKee, Glantz will lie and then continue repeating the lie in order to give it traction – and this extends to his funding. On POTV, we covered how he received payments from a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. He also pockets $6.61 million a year from the National Institutes of Health to spread his ideologically driven campaign. But when asked, he replies: “I’ve never taken a penny from any drug company.” At best this is a disingenuous rejoinder.

Blasting News continues: “These tobacco control groups have a vested interest in keeping smokers unaware of the benefits of e-cigarettes and the public needs to question motives of any group hiding behind children and misstating facts, including the Centers for Disease Control & politician Tom Frieden.”

It’s not just vapers attacking nonsense online; the vaping community is fighting back in Kentucky. Last week, Ashland city commission set the wheels in motion to ban e-cigarette use inside public places. It was driven by the mayor Chuck Charles’s laughable concern for the public’s health: “When you’ve got a chemical that’s used in *anti-freeze, it doesn’t take much to realize it’s harmful.”

Vaper and storeowner Melissa Goodwin responded to Charles’ hysterical outpourings: “People are afraid of what they don’t understand. Legislation should come down to the burden of proof, just like in court.” Vapers and vape shop owners campaigned against the moves and achieved a small victory with stores being allowed to continue offering samples and trials.

Jerry Goodwin, a fellow ecig entrepreneur, added: “We’re a big, tight-knit group. We’re going to push. The city’s going to do what they want to do, but we have several national advocacy groups that will be coming to our aid. I think the controversy’s a little bit bigger than what they were expecting.”

Many vapers in the UK are ready to throw in the towel following the detrimental preliminary ruling from the EU courts last month, but if they do the likes of Glantz and Ashland’s mayor win. If vapers give up the fight then stupidity and ignorance wins.

*PG is used in antifreeze. Unfortunately for Chuck, it is used in non-toxic antifreeze and it is the quantity of a toxin that makes it dangerous – not simply its presence. Tinned tuna has traces of lead (highly toxic in larger doses), we wonder if Charles will campaign to have that banned from his town too?
