The emerging Vape industry began several years ago in c-store and online retailers. These products were generally good enough to convert some smokers but there was much to be desired. This desire spawned the original specialized vape shops that followed and promoted innovations to vaping technology and brought these innovations directly to their customers. For several years these shops have worked directly with manufacturers trading feedback from customers and helping to refine the art of designing vapor products that fully satisfy vaping consumers. Ask most experienced consumers of vaping products where they buy their e-liquid and hardware and they will mention their local vape shops and/or online as the best sources for quality vaping products. This atmosphere is the birthplace of Lost Coast.
We have refined our product with concise feedback directly from our network of specialized distributors, vape shops and their customers. At Lost Coast we are vapers and throughout this process of refinement we have come to understand intimately the needs of vapers of all experience levels. They want a liquid that is thick enough to not leak from their tanks, so we use a 70/30 VG/PG blend. They don’t want to constantly have fouled cotton so we use no sweeteners and only use concentrates that have boiling points similar to VG and PG, ensuring that one ingredient wont build up in the cotton wick and skew the flavor. They want a product that they can rely on day in and day out and not become overwhelmed by too much flavor, so we carefully balanced our recipe to retain the flavor profile through the exhale and dissipate immediately afterwards. We have developed a winning product that is lauded by experienced vapers everywhere, the next step for us is to make that product more accessible to those vapers, within their daily routine.
There are many qualities to Lost Coast that can only be developed by vapers for vapers, not the least of which is a sense of authenticity that is generally lacking in existing c-store e-liquid. The main issue with quality e-liquid now is that it is not conveniently available, with vape shops being spaced widely to capture enough customers to sustain their specialized stores..
We understand and implement the small cues that tell vapers that no matter where it is sold, Lost Coast hails from the original desire for better vaping products that has driven the innovation in the industry and these cues and quality are precisely what is missing from many of our c-store competitors. We aim to change the perception of e-liquid in c-stores to show vapers that they can have good e-liquid without the hassle of changing their busy routine.
