IT IS VAPOR - WARNING - DANGEROUS CHEMICALS - NO FDA APPROVAL

Redwood City, California 2 comments

I am extremely alarmed to learn from my doctor that I became very ill because of the vaporizer I bought from It Is Vapor. Specifically, my doctor said that the "juice" that is contained in the vaporizer device that John Corbett sold me is chemically very dangerous, and should not be ingested by a human being. My doctor said that there is no FDA regulation on the "juice" substance that It Is Vapor sells; as of the drafting of this post. For this reason - my doctor HIGHLY recommended that I discontinue any use of the Vaporizer that Is Is Vapor sold me. I am uncertain if there is any regulation for other companies "juice", and I am doing my due diligence and research to find more information. From what I have learned so far, the "juice substance" It Is Vapor is selling is made in a private "little" facility and nobody in this facility is certified or licensed to produce a chemical such as this. This is so scary to learn, and it is unconscionable that there is no entity like the FDA regulating It Is Vapor. It is Vapor is selling an untested and unsafe product.

MY RECOMMENDATION TO THE READERS OF THIS POST THAT PATRONIZE IT IS VAPOR, IS TO NOT INHALE OR INGEST THE JUICE SUBSTANCE IT IS VAPOR IS SELLING UNTIL THERE IS PROOF IT IS SAFE! Please do not learn the hard lesson that I have, and become ill as a result of It Is Vapor's negligence. John Corbett is the owner and President of It Is Vapor and will likely face legal repercussions for his negligence.

Thank you - God Bless

What substance in the ejuice did the doctor deduce had made you ill?What type of lab testing did he order to confirm this?

Based on my knowledge of toxicology lab procedures, I suspect there is a lot of assuming and speculation going on here, and that's unfair to make these claims against the juice manufacturer.NO ejuices are FDA regulated at this point, as you seem to assume the majority are tested and vetted.

In what way did you become Ill from vaping their juice?There is only 4 things that go into the juice and only 1 of them is dangerous and that is nicotine.

The other ingredients are food grade propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, also safe, and flavoring. What exactly made you Ill and in what way? Your story doesn't add up. It just sounds like sour grapes.

Hey that sounds like a good flavor to vape I wander if they have it?:grin

IT IS VAPOR - BEWARE OF NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES

Not resolved

I have not felt so ripped off and mislead by a storeowner in a very, very, long time.It Is Vapor has violated an agreement, and does not want to honor their commitment to me.

In addition, I returned my products to the store with the reassurance from a female manager that I would receive at a minimum, store credit. I spoke with John today, and he REFUSED TO HONOR HIS MANAGERS AGREEMENT TO PROVIDE ME STORE CREDIT, AND IT IS VAPOR NOW HAS IN THEIR POSSESSION MY ORIGINAL PURCHASED PRODUCTS. JOHN SAID, "...WE NEVER EXCHANGE, REFUND OR RETURN PRODUCTS FOR ANY REASON..." EVEN IF YOU DOUBT MY POST in the SLIGHTEST - THE ONLY QUESTION YOU NEED TO ASK YOURSELF IS, WHY WOULD YOU DO BUSINESS WITH STORE WHO HAS NO REFUND, RETURN OR EVEN AN EXCHANGE POLICY. TO NOT EVEN ALLOW AN EXCHANGE TO UPGRADE TO ANOTHER DEVICE SIMPLY SPELLS OUT - DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH IT IS VAPOR!!!

This is not about the money; it is about principle and keeping your word! My story is simple - upon a recommendation from a friend, I visited John at It Is Vapor. John and I spoke in great detail regarding the various products now available on the market related to vaporizers, and John convinced me to purchase a product against my better judgment; with his assurance that if I had a problem with the product for ANY REASON, that I would be able to "...upgrade to a better unit..." Being that this was a dramatic change that I wasn't sure I was able to make, I felt comfortable with John's commitment and guarantee to me. After trying to get use to the NEW product and NEW technology, (which I tried it for approximately 6 months) it just did not satisfy my needs.

The battery life of the device was simply to short and the charging process is too cumbersome. I was open to discussing other options with John and consider upgrading to a higher-grade device. I was even OK with them "prorating the exchange" based on the 6 months I used it. Let's be real here - we are talking about a total cost of about $40.00, and prorated it would be less.

I would have been willing to accept a credit from John toward an upgraded model of $25.00. So what this comes down to be is John ("It Is Vapor") are willing to lose a customer for $25.00 - CAN ANYONE JUSTIFY THIS??? Even if you disagree with my reasoning and story, a $25.00 customer service gesture to sell me ANOTHER PRODUCT with a high margin will still have netted John money and made a customer happy. We all know that John would be able to return the product to the manufacture for some credit to offset his cost.

BOTTOM LINE, NO MATTER HOW YOU'RE READ THIS POST - IT IS VAPOR AND JOHN IS A PLACE I RECOMMEND NEVER DOING BUSINESS WITH!!! THERE ARE SO MANY COMPETITORS ON THE MARKET NOW, YOU DON'T NEED TO WASTE YOUR TIME WITH BUSINESSES THAT WILL NOT EVEN EXCHANGE YOUR PRODUCT - LET ALONE RETURN AND REFUND YOU. By the way - It Is Vapor STILL HAS MY ORIGINAL PURCHASE PRODUCT IN THEIR POSSESSION.

****This was written as a response to me today 1/7/13. It was sent from the Owner/President of It Is Vapor, John Corbett to my personal email.

"...I could be the "Vape-Nazi" and spit on people, and they would still come in... . Look at my site. The prices are obviously not designed to be sold on the internet.

99.5 percent of my customers are retail, brick and mortar, not internet. I literally could care less about the internet...***** Is this disturbing to you? Does this guy deserve your business when he obviously thinks the public he serves are morons and don't matter?

You be the judge please!****

The itisvapor store near me was very courtesy to returning dud cartomizers in exchange for new ones.

It wasnt till i started ordering them online from their parent site : itisvapor.com that i got pissed off.

Its pretty common cartomizers get messed up in the factory somehow and produce an awful chemical taste no matter how long u hit it. But these people in customer support claimed no e cigarette company does refunds, nor is it their fault because customers can use different batteries or eliquids.

Well its too bad im only using products from their site. Im done ordering online from them. Ill just drive the 30min to the store.

Really? Can you return things to Walmart after using them for 6 months ? How dumb are you?

Anne, maybe as a person running another of John Jacobs'' (Corbett) stores, you really aren't in a neutral position to rally against another person.

Where did your doctor have the juice tested?He didn't did he?

Doctors used to say cigarettes were safe.

Maybe you should go back to smoking them?:x
