Lately I have been on a mission to explore new vape juices since I left the DIY juice endeavour behind me. I have been visiting multiple vape shops, tasting a variety of juices, buying a variety of juices and repurchasing a variety of the juices I like. One thing I have learnt throughout my two years of vaping and making my own juice in the past, is that direct light and even worse, direct sunlight, degrades juice. It changes the juice's color and certainly does affect the juice's overall quality / taste. Now, what I have noticed in many vendors is that all the juices on display are hit by direct light and/or sunlight all day every day. Many times I look at the color of juices I am very familiar with and see the discoloration. What drove me to initiate this thread - The other day I went to a local vape shop, bought a juice I am very familiar with and when I vaped on it, I noticed it tasted different (In a bad way). I also noticed the juice appeared a lot darker than what I remember it when I bought at directly from the manufacturer/owner at vapecon last year. Today I went back to that same vendor to buy some cotton and when I went into the shop, I noticed that all juice was being hit by direct sunlight. Seeing as juice is so expensive and consistency in taste is important to the consumers splashing out money on these juices, I think it's important to address this issue....Or is it just me who thinks it's an issue? Many manufacturers are using black bottles nowadays which probably helps protect the juice being exposed to light and retain the quality and consistency of the juice, but not all manufacturers want their juices in black bottles. Manufacturers take great care to ensure their juices are produced in high standard facilities, and steeped in dark places for the correct period. The vendors should take the same care for the product once received to ensure the quality is maintained until it's in the consumers' hands. We should remember this is a product which is perishable and can be spoiled if exposed to the wrong environmental conditions. Am I crazy? Your thoughts?
