Cool Clouds Vapor Shop

 

Cool Clouds is a retailer of electronic cigarettes and e-liquids, also known as vapor products. The business, located at 3837 W. 95th St., assists adult smokers in their transition away from combustible tobacco products. 

The store is owned by Evergreen Park residents Bridget Carey and Reid Nuttall. Both are former smokers who enjoy helping other adults find a less harmful alternative to smoking cigarettes. Their approach starts with educating customers about the range of smoke-free products available, then finding a good fit.

“We walk our customers through the process, asking questions about their smoking habits and how much they smoke, as well as finding their level of comfort with this technology,” said Nuttall. “Then we work with their budget, lifestyle and goals to find a device, nicotine level and flavor that will be satisfying and make the task of quitting smoking less daunting.”

About Vapor Products

According to the Cool Clouds website, vapor products are electronic devices with three components: a battery power source, a heating element, and e-liquid. E-liquid is applied to the heating element directly or passively with the use of a tank and with the power of the battery, the liquid is heated to the point that it becomes vapor. 

Vapor products include electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers, mods, pens, cigalikes and vapes. The one unifying characteristic is that these devices do not burn, so they do not expose users to harmful smoke or tar. 

E-liquids usually contain a mix of these four ingredients:

  • PG (Propylene Glycol) is used as a base and a stabilizing agent.
  • VG (Vegetable Glycerin) assists in producing a thick cloud of vapor.
  • Natural or artificial flavors that impart a sweet or tobacco-like taste.
  • Nicotine can be included at various levels, allowing customers to decrease nicotine over time if they choose. E-liquids are also available without nicotine.

The Evergreen Park shop opened in 2014 and is their original location. They also have a second store in Tinley Park. 

Cool Clouds also offers a range of CBD (cannabis) products, as well as glass and accessories for customers who use cannabis.
