Full And In Depth Review

Blu Cigs is definitely a better choice than traditional cigarettes and a better option than other brands out there.

More About Blu Cigs

It was in 2009 when Blu was established. Since that year, the company has been known as the best band most trusted brand of electronic cigarette. During its early years, the company imported e liquids from China since the electronic cigarette products originally came there. At that time, most companies actually get their liquids from Chinese manufacturers.

Later on, the company partnered with Johnson Creek and used its trademark Smoke Juice. Johnson Creek is the industry recognized leader of American made e liquids. Master mixers from this company that was established by Christian Berkey manually mixes fresh batches of liquids. Only vegetable glycerin is used in Smoke Juice so Blu Cigs are essentially propylene glycol free.

Before Blu was acquired by Lorillard in April 2012, it is already an established and reputable company. With the acquisition, Blu Cigs only became a lot better. Lorillard is among the titans of the tobacco industry and is the first among tobacco firms to have ventured in the electronic cigarette industry.

During the recent revenue report of Lorillard, it said that Blu is not a reason for them to be blue because its products are selling quite well in the market. With Blu Cigs, Lorillard was even enabled to enter television marketing again. As a tobacco company, it was forbidden for about four decades to advertise on radio and television.

Since electronic cigarettes are not yet regulated as tobacco products, Lorillard was also the first tobacco slash electronic cigarette company to promote on television. Its first commercial featured Stephen Dorff. The most recent commercial of Blu Cigs is one that shows Jenny McCarthy.

Since August 12, 2010, Blu has been rated by the BBB with A rating. It is also RoHS, CE and FCC compliant.

The recent partnership of Blu was with Clean Vibes Trading Post for ‘Cover Your Butt’ project during the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, the biggest North American musical event, in Manchester, Tennessee. With Clean Vibes, a cleanup effort was performed by the company. It also gave away free passes to the festival through Twitter.

The Conclusion

As an industry pioneer, Blu Cigs will simply not allow its standards and quality to just fade away. With each day that passes, the company will ensure that it will continue to provide and offer customers with guaranteed satisfaction. With the new management from Lorillard, customers can only expect that Blu will reach more milestones that are all for the liking of its users.

    Well when I did smoke I’ve noticed that Canadian ciggarettes were different then those in the US. The Canadian brands seemed to be a lot smaller (shorter and thiner) in comparrison to US brands, however their packages contained more (25 compared to 20). So if you are just analysizing the butts of the cigarrettes you may not be getting an accurate reading of toxins because the people in Canada generally could be just smoking more (as in their 25 packs). I don’t know if they looked at that or not or compared an entire smoked pack of butts and calculated a total amount per pack. But that is one thing that didn’t seem to be looked at in this study.

    Anyways, I’ve been smoke free for 2 years now and happy I quit…

    People have a right to choose whether they want to smoke or not. There should be no government agency dictating whether or not we can do something. I don’t smoke cigarettes anymore but I find it abhorrent to think that anyone would condone the government taking away someones choice as to what they want to do. See how well it’s worked with other drugs.

    As a long term smoker who fell victim to tobacco companies giving out sample cigarettes to children, I’ve noticed the recent change in the way cigarettes taste and smell and how they immediately affect my health.
    It seems since tobacco companies were mandated by law to include chemicals in the cigarettes to make them fire compliant, they’ve become even deadlier. Because cigarettes have been known to cause cancer and other illness and people are assumed to just quit, does that give the okay to add more deadly chemicals without due regard? Maybe the US is trying to reduce the population and at the same time make money.
    I agree with AC below, why are they even allowed to sell them legally if they cause so many problems.
    Since I enjoy smoking (not the crap they’re selling here) I think I will try to get cigarettes from overseas.
    Thanks for bringing attention to this issue!

    Thanks for the first comment from the Christian Temperance Union. A small minority that caused more trouble than they were worth, but got us income tax, since alcohol was banned, which was the primary source of government funding.

    As for tobacco… I’m a smoker, have been for 30 years. I’ve been stationed overseas for a few years supporting the war effort and I’ve noticed a SIGNIFICANT difference between cigarettes at home and abroad.
    OUR cigarettes are FAR harsher on the throat and have a chemical taste that I never noticed until I returned.
    I wonder WHY Canadian tobacco doesn’t have the same problem? Oh yeah, they regulate the content of the consumer products, whether it is food, alcohol or tobacco. They don’t judge the consumer as being less worthy of protection, they take care of their citizens.
    The US takes care of the lobbiests.

    If you want to continue using nicotine or comfortably cut down gradually, electronic cigarettes are the way to go. I smoked almost 2 packs a day for 23 years and quit smoking completely the first day I got my e cigarette. Cigarettes have over 6000 TSNA’s per cigarette and and equal amount of e liquid has (according to the FDA’s report) about 9, which is the same amount as pharmaceutical NRT’s . Nicotine on it’s own is no more dangerous than caffeine is, and has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of some diseases, but until now there has been no way to use it without horrible health dangers. Thankfully, I have found something that allowed me to quit smoking when no other method worked for me. For more info on electronic cigarettes check out They haven’t been proven to be totally safe, but are much safer than cigarettes. I have 4 times the lung capacity I had while smoking, no longer smell nasty, and feel better than I have in my adult life since I switched.

    Thank You for Smoking (2005). A Stout goes nicely with it. I use to smoke, I loved the Major’s. I’d get when I was in Ireland drinking way too much. The locals would ask me for a smoke thinking I had a Marlboro LIght. When they saw the Major’s they said &#034 ahh no, killed me pa&#034 Drinking too much is bad. Smoking at all is bad. I decided to quit smoking, it wasn’t easy, but, what is. Like many have said, we’re all dying anyway, but, why do it with some of those nasty cancers more than likely linked to smoking. It’s 5 12, I’m going to go have a beer.

    I’m not a smoker, but I do believe in freedom, as long as one’s behavior doesn’t impinge on another’s freedoms. So, the article is simply informing everyone that U.S. cigarettes are stronger in carcinogens than in other countries. That would seem to be at least somewhat important to know. It may influence some, who are concerned about their health, to stop smoking. If, on the other hand, you choose to smoke, I think it is your right. Simply pick a safe place where you are not smoking near people who would rather not have smoke blown in their face, and please keep it away from the kids!
    And, finally, it is true that there are many types of substances that are a detriment to one’s health. We all know that.

    I found it interesting as I read this article that the group doing the study forgot to include how each of these brands is processed. Here in the states tobacco is 1st leached of all chemicals.(this includes nicotine & tar) This brew,called mother’s liquor, is then stored in big vats where other ingredients are added later. Once the tobacco has been dried from this process and shredded or grated into the desired size, this concoction is then added back into the tobacco by a soak bath. Most people don’t realize that manufacturers are allowed a certain amount of &#034 floor sweepings&#034 in each batch or that &#034 stale&#034 or old tobacco is up 50% of each cigarette. These all have a factor in chemical levels in the product. Most tobacco producing countries do not use this method due to tradition or regulation.

    As a tobacco control scientist (and a recovering smoker who struggles with this addiction every day) I would like to address a few issues that have been overlooked
    1) Secondary smoke is undoubtedly harmful (most recently noted to increase cardiovascular risks) however, recent research has begun to explore the effects of tertiary smoke. In fact, a recent study concluded that tobacco related carcinogens have been found in children (from non smoking environments) who were exposed to tertiary smoke (industrial building converted to school). This means, exposure could occur for sometime in &#034 shared spaces&#034 (i.e., apartments, hotels, ).
    2) Weston There is no research on the efficacy of e cigarettes in terms of quitting, nor the safety of them. The National Institutes of Health and CDC are currently exploring this issue.
    3) Cigarette smoke has negative effects on every organ in the human body. I would caution others who get hung up on the issue of lung cancer. It has been linked to bladder, esophageal, leukemia, cervical, pancreatic, kidney, stomach, others.
    4) Tobacco related deaths account for nearly 1 in 5 deaths in the US each year. Many of these disease states fall in the areas of cancers, respiratory and cardiovascular all of which are extraordinarily costly to treat. Cigarette smoking, much like the current obesity epidemic is a significant burden on our health care system for which we all pay.
    5) A &#034 safe cigarette&#034 is the absence of any. Should we strip all of the carcinogens linked to the various cancers, the nicotine (why smokers become addicted) would remain thus increasing cardiovascular risks of smokers as well as bystanders.
    6) For those who believe cigarettes should be banned, I am confident we (&#034 tobacco controllers&#034 ) will do so. Tobacco companies are focusing energy elsewhere (developing nations) to continue sales while concurrently partnering with pharmaceutical companies to develop alternatives to cigarettes (tobacco pellets, e cigarettes and the like). Recently, I had a conversation with the Director of R&D from Atria (formerly Philip Morris) who has been charged with developing alternative products as the company is anticipating a full ban on cigarettes within the next 15 20 years.

    So CDC used smokers from five cities in a few select countries, called it a study, and determined it was worthwhile to publish? I am not a smoker but have sampled smokes from around the world in my travels and this article is way off base IMO. Cigarettes I have tried in Asia and some parts of Europe are much harsher than the ones in the States.

    Yet the illness and death rates from smoking ANY of these products is essentially the same in all these nations and smoker populations.

    Why no mention that it appears that 300% increase (or decrease) of TSNA’s has no impact on disease?

    It would appear that TSNA’s are NOT the major issue driving disease.

    A few of you mentioned the electronic cigarettes. For the record, they are not all created &#034 equal&#034 . Just like we have problems with quality and safety from other items from China, the e cigs are no exception. The inferior ones are setting a bad rep for the product.

    Overall, they are still the safest way to smoke. You get nicotine without the 4000 hazardous chemicals from burning tobacco. They are a green product, being they don’t produce a ton of cigarette butts and the battery is rechargable hundreds of times. They also cost tons less than real tobacco. A win win for the consumer.

    The real politics come in with the FDA and Treasury Departments. While they want everyone to quit smoking, they don’t want to loose the tax revenue on tobacco. Thus the reason why they keep raising taxes on tobacco products on the smaller and smaller population of smokers. When that runs out, all the do gooders will have their coffee or fast food taxed because someone has to fund the government.

    With consumers switching to the inexpensive VaporCigarettes, the FDA started blocking the imports, stating that it contains nicotine (a drug) and they don’t know the health effects of inhaling nicotine. Strange, that is whats in every real cigarette plus a ton of other chemicals. The real truth is they don’t want a product on the market that is going to take away tax revenue. You can buy gum or nicotine patches over the counter in any drug store, even some gas stations. Funny how e cigs are being treated differently when it delivers the same drug (nicotine) in the same fashion (smoke/vaporized) as a real cigarette.

    Just a few weeks ago the state of Utah banned the sale and use of electronic cigarettes. Any bets that NY or CA will follow next?

    They should do a study on e cigarettes versus real cigarettes. Oh wait, that would put egg on their face.

    The near extinction of pelicans by DDT, Bis phenols and impaired male sexual development, cigarettes and cancer are clear indications that chemicals have harmful biological effects on humans. Animals have basically the same genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that human animals have. Chemicals can act to modify the function of our genes and therefore our current health and the phenotype of future generations. To ignore animal research on the harmful effects of chemicals and call it inconclusive is insane. We can never do the perfect experiment on humans, that is with some subjects exposed and some not exposed (controls). Industry will drag their feet while we wait for information that is &#034 conclusive&#034 but near impossible to acquire. We must rely on legitimate animal studies now and begin to limit the spewing of chemicals into our kids bodies. A doomsday scenario can be conjured … the mass extinction of life on earth due to genetically lethal chemical pollution of the Earth.

    For those who are nicotine free now or are in the process of quitting (cigarette, e cigarette, candy like nicotine, etc.), what a wise decision!
    You probably won’t exchange it for a nobel price.

    Being a non smoker not only reduce the risk of lung cancer, it actually has many other health benefits including reduced risks in cardiovascular diseases, diabetes complication, …, etc. The best bet is that you already lengthen your life expectancy, provided…

    … provided you don’t drink irresponsibly, never DUI, take precaution to avoid any exposures that may cause HIV/AIDS, lucky not to contract any serious acute infectious disease, exercise regularly, eat right, and etc.

    Statistics tells people tend to have the mentality yes smoking is bad, diseases can happen, but … it is never going to happen to me. You bet! Oh well, just hope that eveyone is doing their part to have a fairly decent life style, otherwise they better cross their fingers and wish their ancesters have passed excellent healthy (disease protective) genes onto them! It is almost like the chance of winning
