Diacetyl, other Diketones and Liquid testing :
As a customer-focussed business, Manabush is dedicated to providing quality, flavoursome and above all safe liquids.
Part of this process has involved commissioning a series of GC-MS tests to ascertain the components of the vape. Most of us are aware of diacetyl and acetyl propionyl - Manabush are pleased to announce that neither of these chemicals were detected in our juice (results below).
We did detect small levels of acetoin in a few of the juices (mainly the ones with a custardy or buttery note). We are led to believe that it is not harmful in such levels (it occurs naturally in black currants, apples, butter, yogurt and asparagus) but it is thought that it could catalyse into very small amounts of diacetyl under extreme temperature. Manabush always recommends that our liquids are not vaped at too high a temperature to get the best flavour.
With knowledge available at present it would seem the risk from acetoin is small, we believe that you have a right to know that it is present in the liquids shown (as well as many other buttery and custard vapes). The truth of how harmful any of these chemicals are is hard to ascertain, all of the above mentioned chemicals can be found in traditional cigarettes - in larger quantities than normally found in e-liquids.
Our friends at Colonel Boom recently spoke to Dr. Farsalinos on the subject of Acetoin and it's potential to catalyze he stated that he "is unsure if the catalyzation to Diacetyl is actually happening" but on the subject of Acetoin "There is no issue so far with acetoin itself"
We are not unduly concerned with the trace amounts of acetoin found in a few of our liquids, but we are investigating reformulation of those liquids to try to eliminate it altogether in the future.
Equally important in these tests we feel is the Nicotine content assay - we try our best to mix with the utmost accuracy using calibrated weighing equipment - we constantly review the weights of flavours and bases to make sure there has been no change in the weight in the actual constituent parts themselves - we like to think our accuracy is reflected in our test results. When you buy our products we like to know that you are vaping as close to the strength you have bought as is possible.
We have always contended that vaping is safer than smoking, not that it is safe, and the safest option is not to vape or smoke. You can rely on Manabush to constantly look for ways to make your liquid as safe as possible and to keep you informed.

Enjoying The Manabush Range of E-liquids
The Manabush range is a complex mix of flavours. While some are quite dark, all contain some quite delicate overtones and undertones - as such we recommend the following to enjoy your Manabush E-liquid to its full potential (of course everyone one has their favourite Atty and voltage, and you are free to enjoy as you see fit .. this is just our recommendation).
We have found the manabush range tastes best with a silica wick at not too high a temperature - to us the sweet spot seems to be just on the cusp of being warm. Personally we drip ours using either 306's or iGo-L's , or use a rebuildable silica Atomiser such as a Kayfun or GP Spheroid or similar again these are just recommendations - the juice flavour changes quite dramatically at different temperatures so feel free to experiment.
Chiricahua Sun, a mild tobacco base with an indefinable sweet nutty topping
Chiricahua Sun, a mild tobacco base with an indefinable sweet nutty topping. Created as a labour of love by our head creator and Manabush founder, this juice has not only a personal touch, but a story behind its creation.
Chiricahua Sun has, for us a history.
The name is a tribute to the whole concept of the Manabush E-liquid branding and idea.
I have always been a music lover, and as a young man and still even today I was a very big fan of Adam and the Ants, The Cult and Claytown Troupe, all of which drew heavily on Native American art and imagery in the earlier years. When the concept of Manabush was first conceived, this was the influence that steered me to choose everything from the name to the actual branding itself.
Chiricahua Sun is named (with permission) after track ten of the Claytown Troupe album "Through The Veil" and is a nod to that band and to my friend Christian Riou who has given me a lot of help over the last few years.
