We consistently see Green Smoke ranking at the top among our reader reviews so I was excited to jump in and start testing all of the flavors that Green Smoke offers. This brand’s big claim to fame is FlavorMax technology that makes the cartridges last longer and release 25 percent more vapor. So if you want big flavor, big vapor, and longer lasting cartridges, this is your brand. Each cartridge lasts about as long as 1.5 packs of cigarettes, or about 360 puffs.
The cartridges come in a variety of flavors and you can pick from 5 different nicotine strengths ranging from 0 to 2.4%. All of the cartridges are tightly sealed and arrive in 5-packs. I tried all of Green Smoke’s cartridges except for the Mountain Clove. I’m hoping to try those soon, but I’d love to hear from you if you’ve already tried that option! For now, here’s a break down of how I felt about each Green Smoke flavor.
Absolute Tobacco – It takes a little priming, but once you get Absolute Tobacco going, it gives you amazing amounts of vapor. Honestly, I’ve never experienced that much vapor from a regular two-piece electronic cigarette. I was super impressed! The flavor was a good smooth tobacco, similar to Marlboro Gold cigarettes.
Red Label Tobacco – Red label has a richer tobacco taste and a really good throat hit. If you are looking for that feeling in your throat like you enjoyed after smoking a couple cigarettes, this is the cartridge you want. It’s one of the best tobacco flavors I’ve ever tried and I can easily understand why so many e-cig fans prefer Green Smoke Red Label Tobacco as their cartridge of choice.
Mocha Mist – You might be surprised to see a coffee flavor ranking in my “Loved It” section since I’m not really a big coffee drinker. But this is the most unique coffee flavor I’ve ever tasted. It’s kind of a mix between tobacco and a mild cup of coffee. If you always enjoyed a cigarette with your morning cup of joe, you will love this flavor. I will definitely use it on a regular basis.
Tobacco Gold – The Tobacco Gold is the mildest tobacco option from Green Smoke. You still get that green vapor production, but the throat hit is a little lighter and the taste is more mellow. The closest thing I can compare it to is a Camel cigarette. It’s definitely good, but I liked Red Label and Absolute Tobacco better.
Smooth Chocolate – Unlike a lot of sweet flavors I’ve tried, the Smooth Chocolate had a hefty throat hit. I was kind of shocked at first because I expected it to be really gentle and mild. Nope! It has a nice chocolate flavor, but still produces big vapor and big throat hit. It’s perfect for those times I’m craving something sweet.
Vanilla Dreams – Most of the vanilla cartridges I have tried in the past had low levels of vapor and a sickeningly sweet taste. Green Smoke was just the opposite. Good vapor, nice mellow throat hit, and the perfect mix of tobacco and vanilla flavor. If you don’t like spicy flavors, this will be a good pick for you.
Not a Fan
Menthol Ice – The Menthol was Green Smoke’s only flavor that disappointed me. It tasted more like a mint than a menthol and it had the lowest amount of vapor of any cartridges I tried from this brand. It’s not terrible by any stretch, but compared to the other really awesome flavors, this one just failed to impress me.
Overall, Green Smoke is a good option all around. Their cartridges are reasonably priced and you can even sign up for a monthly subscription program that automatically ships you new cartridges each month so you never run out. By using their subscription plan, you can save 15-25% off the cartridge prices too.
I also love that they give you incentives for recycling your used cartridges. Everytime you send in 80 used cartridges, you get 25 loyalty points that you can use to get 5 free Green Smoke cartridges.
Ultimately, Green Smoke is proving once again why they stand at the top of our reviews time after time. Every flavor is going to appeal to someone and the FlavorMax technology insures that you get longer lasting cartridges with huge volumes of satisfying vapor.
