Vaping in Portland, OR
« on: November 24, 2013, 04:00:20 PM »
I was just wondering, since there doesn't seem to be many good stores here in Portland, how many people in the NW are using vaporizers and e-cigs? Let me know... also, let me know of any good new ejuice flavors you have tried... I like tobacco flavors myself.

 Hi Parkerpdx
Welcome to the Den :)
Being in the UK I canít help you but someone will.
Why not update your profile with your approximate location, it helps people point you to relevant vendors  ;)

Welcome to the Den :()()

I have no idea if there are any bricks and mortar stores in Portland, but most vapers tend to buy online. I get all my supplies online as i don't have any stores near me :(

I live about 90 miles South of Portland. I have met a few vapers at a vape shop in Albany.  I think the PNW is a couple of years behind the East Coast and California on discovering vaping.

The best tobacco juice I have tried is Smooth Smokey Joe's from Vaping Xtreme. I just ordered some TCV from Top Cookie via private message.

No idea.

However, I suspect TCV stands for something like Top Cookie Vape.

So Top Cookie makes his own juice? Hmmm might have to see what he has to offer ;D I'm still searching for that perfect vape. I have lots that I love, but I want one I don't get bored with and is so yummy I can't put it down...

I  think TC makes only the one mixture to sell. Limited sales are through email and/or private messaging.

I believe the mixture is intended to be a tobacco flavored ADV.

That's too bad it is a tobacco flavored ADV... That ruins it for me right there.

Im using alot of different bottom coil tanks and I have a gripper varable voltage and a itaste vv battery. I think so far, Mount baker Vapor, madvapes, nw vapors and Desert Vapors are all my favorite online shops so far...
Anyone have any suggestions for good tobacco ejuice sites and also good hardware/tanks/etc... sites?

Thanks for all the welcoming messages.

mtbakervapor.com is my favorite juice vendor. I love the fact that you can buy 8 ounces of goods quality juice for about 40 bucks. And it's good juice ;D

Parker, have you checked out the 'links' button up there in the menu bar?  Click on that, and you'll find links to vendors that are Den members, sorted by rough geography (N. America, Europe, Australia).  Those are reputable vendors with good customer service.  Trying them out isn't as risky as some other places you'll stumble across through a web search.

For tobacco-based flavors, I'd suggest you start with Innevape and Vaping Xtreme.

Hey. I have a good friend in Beaverton and he's using the blu ecig deal. He was wondering about a good store up there too. If you find a good B&M store around there, please post it up.  Welcome to the den!

Hey parkerpdx - Welcome to the Vaper's Den.

People here seem to be very friendly and helpful. Think you might have found a home!

In terms of tobacco vapes, I have found a couple in Australia which are awesome (Halfman Stash by VapeBar is good). If you're talking US juices, then I would say Captain Ron from Indigo Vapor or Best Damn Tobacco by Virgin Vapor.

Good luck mate :)

The shop that I frequent in Portland is Division Vapor on SE Division and 36th. Nice little shop where you can taste test all you want. Apparently there is also a new shop on SE Hawthorne (somewhere between 20th and 30th). I haven't been yet (obviously), but I'm planning on checking it out this week.
