Golden Virginia probably reminds you of traditional roll-your-own tobacco pouches, as it does with me, but I had to kick that smoking habit a couple of years back when my health took a turn for the worst.
Since then I have purchased my first ever electronic cigarette and started regularly vaping with my e cigarette starter kit which is a lot less harmful than smoking normal golden virginia tobacco roll-your-own cigarettes, although not as much fun. I used to really enjoy the rolling process – weird, huh?
What is Golden Virginia?
Golden Virginia, for those who don’t know, is traditionally a roll-your-own tobacco that comes in pouches and small tobacco blocks – it has a very beautiful, smooth and smoky taste when smoking or vaping and is a favourite around the world and especially here in the UK. It’s a best-seller.
It was often used in rollies and sometimes mixed with cannabis or other drugs for people who wanted a little more from their smoking habit. I don’t approve of that stuff, though.
Manufactured here in England by Imerial Tobacco, Golden Virginia is sold throughout Europe and is the best-selling tobacco here in the UK and many other countries around Europe. Apparently, there are huge differences between their Yellow and Green ranges with the latter being a smoother, factory-made blend of Golden Virginia tobacco. It was an obvious choice for them to move to the e-liquid market.
Golden Virginia E-Liquid
Golden Virginia e-liquid first arrived on the scene just a few years ago when electronic cigarettes first arrived on the market. The e-liquid is made by Hangsen out in China although I’m unsure of their relationship, if there is one, or if Hangsen are producing this liquid with Imperial Tobacco’s name illegally which would be pretty bad for them and only a matter of time before they get sued.
It’s safe so say that this liquid has been a big hit. Golden Virginia E Liquid has been huge among the vaping community with millions of sales annually being predicted by e cigarette companies online.
I usually purchase my Golden Virginia e-liquid from an online store called E-Liquid Life which is based in the heart of Liverpool City. Their bottles start at just £3.24 which is ridiculously low for a bottle of genuine Hangsen e-liquid. I prefer 20ml bottles at a strength of 30mg which is just right on my throat – not too harsh but very, very smooth and tasty. You can’t go wrong really!
Tips for Golden Virginia Smokers
If you’re currently stuck in the position I was stuck in a few years back, rolling tobacco cigarettes over and over throughout the day and continuously worrying about your health then you really need to take action today – kick that dirty habit to the curb by turning to electronic cigarettes – you will not regret it.
Don’t try to cut out the cigarettes completely without replacing them with something else because you’ll find that you’ll fail very quickly. Ease off them with e cigarettes. It worked for me, it’ll work for you too!
Close behind GV is menthol e-liquid which is also a big hit from Hangsen.
