I vape exclusively now after being a smoker for about seven and a half years. While living in Tampa Florida a friend of mine Carlito introduced me to vaping claiming "how wonderful the various fruit flavors tasted." Being the skeptic I am, I wasn't sure how I was going to like the change, but after spending several hours at a local vape store with Carlito I was thoroughly convinced that this was the healthier alternative. Even so, after learning that the majority of companies were adding unhealthy and non-essential ingredients to their E-Liquid, I thought there had to be a better way. Most of the E- Liquids available use either artificial flavorings or color additives or sucrose sweeter to apparently enhance their product. Some companies were even adding ingredients like liquid smoke and titanium dioxide.
I wanted to produce a TRULY PREMIUM E-LIQUID. Thus Mad Ape Vape was born. After an unsatisfactory attempt at producing my own E-Liquid with friends in Tampa, I knew I had to get expert help. That's when I called my father, Patrick Smits. He has a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry, Physics, Math and Computers. He worked in the Nuclear industry for years training research personnel on nuclear instrumentation and integrating multi-channel spectrum analyzers with computers for isotope identification. He also helped General Electric develop their Nuclear Medicine and CAT scanning machines. He was awarded General Electrics "Genius of Invention" for patents he obtained for his research. So, I figured he could formulate a good E-Liquid, if I could nudge him out of retirement, which wasn't easy.
And now I have a new found respect for his analytical approach to developing solutions. He spent months researching companies and their products before mixing a single E-Liquid recipe. What he found was amazing. The quality of some of the best known suppliers was horrendous. He sampled vegetable glycerin (VG) that tasted like it had graphite in it. Nicotine that had a peanut butter taste. Flavors with a high degree of alcohol, acetone and other chemical agents used to extract the flavor esters from the source organic stock. And possibly worse, artificial compounds used in flavors. We now have a list of high quality USA manufacturers, who source high quality organic stock for producing their flavors. Being FDA approved is NOT enough for our high standards. We do not use any products imported from other countries. Being a USA supplier is NOT enough, because they can import their products and resell them as FDA approved. We only use USA Manufacturers!
Once our suppliers were chosen, my father researched the flavor profile preference of people who vape. The largest segment of the market is fruit flavors. Now it was time for him to start developing recipes. It quickly became apparent that it is easy to mix up flavors to create an E-Liquid, it is not so easy to create a GREAT tasting/vaping E-Liquid. After formulating literally hundreds of recipes, some good, some bad and some just okay, it was time to do more in-depth analysis of fruit esters, the "essence" of the flavor, in order to create an EXCELLENT tasting E-Liquid. After researching which flavor esters are complementary and which are inharmonious, the recipe formulation began again. It was agreed upon that Mad Ape Vape would offer six (6) E-Liquid flavors.
It just happens that the rainbow has six major colors. We assigned each color of the rainbow to a fruit flavor that matched the fruit color. For example Red for Strawberry, Orange for Mango, Yellow for Pineapple, Green for Green Apple, Blue for Blueberry and Violet for Pomegranate. We use multiple varieties of a single flavor in most of our juices. Wrath Of Pele for example uses two varieties of strawberries. We use two varieties or sources of Mango, Pineapple, Pomegranate etc. These are the major flavor "notes". In addition, all of our juices are complex recipes. Each flavor has several minor flavor "notes." Maui's Pleasure for example has seven different flavor ingredients, which is our most complex E-Liquid recipe. The results of his efforts is amazing. I am extremely proud of the work my father has done to produce an "all day vape" of the highest quality. Mad Ape E-Liquid is a smooth vape that will not cause an upper respiratory irritation or burning sensation that many other E-Liquids do.
