As with any emerging industry, the vaping world is currently experiencing the effects of a range of new regulations. Often, the effects of those regulations are painted as damning, even as an existential threat to the vaping world in the media.

This couldn’t be farther from the truth. The reality is that these regulations are resulting in a safer, more stable niche that is likely going to prosper in the long term. For any concerned retailers that are considering getting into the vaping world, here’s what to watch out for.

Pur Reliable Brands

The single common thread that ties pretty much all vaping-related horror stories we’ve seen in the news together has been poor quality, unregulated vaping devices and e-liquids. As a result, it’s imperative that all retailers only stock devices from reputable sources, such as Wholesale Disposable Vapes, that only deal with and stock vapes from reputable brands.

By only dealing with well-established brands that you can fully trust and depend upon, you’ll likely avoid a whole range of different potential issues, associated with selling poor-quality and potentially dangerous devices.

Age Restrictions

If you’re selling vapes at your shop, it’s important that you’re aware of the relevant age restrictions that apply.


As with cigarettes and alcohol, nicotine-containing vapes can only be sold to people over the age of 18 – if there’s any doubt as to whether they’re old enough or not, you have a legal duty to inspect their identification. Make sure that all employees are aware of this, or you could end up facing serious legal repercussions.

Nicotine Restrictions

Another regulation that you need to be aware of is the limitations that have been placed on nicotine concentrations in e-liquids. It’s illegal to stock any device or e-liquid that has a concentration of over 20mg per ml. You can stock devices with concentrations that come in under that mark or even e-liquids that don’t contain nicotine at all, but selling anything above that concentration could leave you in serious trouble.

Size Restrictions

Not only are there regulations that govern the strength of nicotine that you’re allowed to sell, but there are also strict regulations governing the size of the e-liquid containers that come with various devices. For disposable vapes, the maximum tank size you can stock is 2 ml.


Even if you’re buying from a reputable supplier, it’s important that you check the sizes of the tanks they’re selling – it’s possible that they’re still accidentally selling models from before the regulations changed, and you don’t want to be caught out like that.

While these points listed above reflect the current regulations, it’s important to note that these are subject to ongoing change. Whether you’re a retailer that’s just getting into the niche or you’re an established seller who reckons they know the game well, it’s critical that you check reputable sources such as the government’s website for updates on an ongoing basis. It’s your responsibility to ensure that you only stock legally compliant and safe vaping devices, and the implications of getting it wrong can be quite severe.
