1. What is Crave Essence and what is so good about it?
Crave Essence was created in 2010 as Chef Matt Faucher had an idea that he felt would help positively affect people while utilizing his skills and knowledge acquired over his 18 years experience. Crave Essence was made in order to offer customers a whole new way to look at eJuice. Chef Matt saw that a lot of eJuice products currently on the market had unnecessary chemicals and additives and wanted to offer the purest eJuice possible for our customers by minimizing the ingredient list and offering a premium Organic product. The finished result was Crave Essence eJuice.
2. What ingredients are in Crave Essence’s eJuice?
Our ingredient list is simple. We take the finest flavours extracted in USDA Organic Ethyl Alcohol and combine them with USDA Organic Vegetable Glycerin with your choice of preferred VG based nicotine strength. These strengths are 0mg, 1.5mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg.
*There is absolutely no Propylene Glycol present in our eJuice unless purchasing tobacco flavours which do have trace amounts. All of our flavours are purchased specifically as they do not contain Diacetyl.*
3. Who Should Use Crave Essence’s eJuice?
Our eJuice is best suited for people who enjoy fantastic flavours, those who are mindful of what is in the ingredient list, and for those that can appreciate hand-mixed artisan eJuice. We do not add any sweeteners, sugars, food colourings, or propylene glycol to our mixes. Over the years it has been brought to our attention that PG sensitivity/allergy is a real thing, ranging from headaches to breakouts and rashes. If you experience this yourself, you may want to give Crave Essence’s eJuice a try as it may offer a better alternative.
4. Is Organic eJuice really better for you? Are there any benefits?
Taking the Organic approach with vaping may mean more than you’d think! After doing a lot of research over the years, you would be surprised at all of the hidden chemicals and strange ingredients used to create those tasty flavours. Take a look here to see Castoreum, taken from animals to commonly create your favourite Vanilla, Raspberry or Strawberry flavours. This is an example of an ingredient used to produce artificial flavourings... you will not find any of that here!
Aside from the above statement, by using Organic flavourings Chef Matt is able to utilize the raw flavour of the ingredient to create more complex recipes using single flavour notes that are not easily replicated with artificial flavourings. Having such control over each recipe also allows for the eJuice to vape "cleaner" as it does not contain extra particles such as sweeteners and/or other additives that lead to more frequent changing (gunking) of your coils.
The best benefit of all is the fresh, true, and unique taste of Crave Essence eJuices!
5. Do I need to step Crave Essence eJuice & if so for how long?
On average our eJuice is currently steeped for approximately 1 week prior to its arrival at your door. As soon as you open your package feel free to quickly fill up your tank, but do keep in mind that fruitier flavours steep quicker whereas if you order a creamier or “thicker” flavour, it may require an additional day with the dropper out to decant like a fine wine… to perfection.
