Is It Safe?
CAN SCIENCE POTENTIALLY MAKE CONSUMING ALCOHOL SAFER AND MORE ENJOYABLE?
READ, VERIFY, AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELF!
Vapshot (vapor only) is designed to allow you to experience the fun parts of drinking alcohol while minimizing the bad parts. With Vapshot, you can have a great buzz all night with a much lower chance of having a hangover the next day. At 1/60th the amount of a normal shot of liquor (less than a drop), Vapshots may even mitigate the possible health issues stemming from the consumption of alcohol in liquid form. Other social effects of Vapshots may include decreases in drunk driving, resulting in a reduced number of auto accidents and saving lives.
As a short recap, we started all this as an experiment to see if we could create a more responsible way to enjoy alcohol that could possibly help reduce drunk driving, save lives, and mitigate the negative effects of alcohol in the human body.
After some research we understood at the core of the problem was excessive alcohol in the human body, so we decided to look into processes that would deliver a lower amount of alcohol into the body other than drinking, yet provide the desired effects.
However, we wanted to be sure we designed our solutions with care to ensure maximum safety for both inhaling alcohol and to provide better control of the effects caused by it.
We believe we have achieved this because we do not utilize any heat or other chemicals or compounds that would add to the alcohol and cause additional issues and the serving amount and serving container is a set and known quantity, which is less than a fraction of a drop of alcohol.
Concerns by health professionals have circled around excessive alcohol in the lungs, but search as we may, when we first started six years ago, we could not find any health professionals that could provide tested and confirmed data on this matter. In the end, many of them said it was "inconclusive without actual testing".
So, we said let's go ahead and do real scientific testing so that people are not provided antidotes and misconceptions about our products that are simply untrue and to show, using verified data, how our products can potentially be a more responsible and safer way to consume alcohol.
To test our hypothesis, we sent our end product to a certified testing laboratory to see exactly how much alcohol was suspended in the vapor. This laboratory also conducts testing for the US NAVY in regards to their air quality for their divers.
When we received the results, we were pleased it was well within published levels of safety, which are regarded as the standard by the U.S. government. In fact, someone could consume 120 shots within an eight (8) hour period produced by our systems and still not reach the safety limit set by the U.S. government for allowable amount of alcohol in the lungs. That's one shot every four minutes for eight hours straight. You can see the science and math for this as well as our test results below.
Then we went one step further, we wanted to also see if indeed someone could consume Vapshots all night and have a great time, wait 30 mins and blow a 0.00 on a breathalyzer.
Now this would be something great.
To confirm our suspicions, we asked a DOT (department of transportation) certified testing company, which does the testing for the police departments in the United States for DUI (driving while under the influence) cases to conduct the testing using DOT regulated equipment.
As shown by the information below, our claims were confirmed in court admissible results marked as evidence. Test subjects showed after consuming a Vapshot, they blew a 0.05 on a breathalyzer after one (1) minute and a 0.00 after thirty (30) minutes.
The important thing to note is we have done testing for our products and have verified and concrete data. Many of the people who have concerns about our products have either not seen the data, or have made judgments based on concerns that are not part of our products and do not have any proof to support their statements.
While we cannot speak for other products and processes that may allow people to inhale alcohol, we believe we have clearly shown our products can potentially be safer than drinking.
Please note the test data is for Vapshot, our vaporized alcohol shots. The AlcoholMIST system produces a mist of liquid alcohol that uses about the same amount of alcohol in each shot, which again is a fraction of a drop, so the test data is relevant to both products.
THE FOLLOWING TESTS WERE CONDUCTED BY A DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (DOT) CERTIFIED TESTING SERVICE.
THIS IS THE SAME TESTING SERVICE USED BY THE LOCAL POLICE AND SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT FOR DUI CASES.
THE RESULTS ARE CONSIDERED “EVIDENCE”, WHICH ARE COURT ADMISSIBLE.
Summary of the testing:
1.) They selected 2 people for testing. One male and one female.
2.) The Vapshot machine was filled with 190 proof alcohol, the highest available in most states.
3.) They had the female test subject consume a 1L bottle of Vapshot vapors and then conducted the test at 1 minute. Then they conducted a second test about 30 minutes later. The results for the female test subject were an alcohol level of 0.050 after 1 minute and a 0.00 after 30 minutes.
4.) They had the male test subject consume two (2) 1L bottles of Vapshot vapors one after another and then conducted the test at 1 minute. Then they conducted a second test about 30 minutes later. The results for the male test subject were an alcohol level of 0.062 after 1 minute and a 0.00 after 30 minutes.
PLEASE NOTE: VAPSHOT DOES NOT RECOMMEND PEOPLE DRIVING IF THEY HAVE BEEN CONSUMING ALCOHOL OF ANY TYPE, IN ANY AMOUNT. WE MERELY COMMISSIONED THIS TESTING TO PROVIDE THE DATA FOR PEOPLE TO REVIEW.

Please note: The Department of Transportation regulates the testing service and the testing equipment it uses. It does not endorse or gives approval to products like Vapshot.
LASTING EFFECTS OF DRINKING VS. VAPSHOTS (VAPOR ONLY)
(Note: We elected to use the breathalyzer testing method because it can detect alcohol in the human body up to twice as long as a blood test. (Breathalyzer up to 24 hours / Blood test up to 12 hours). Reference for this information is: http://alcoholism.about.com/od/work/qt/How-Long-Does-Alcohol-Stay.htm )
0.05 Breathalyzer Starting Level: Vapshot reaches 0.00 breathalyzer result 30 minutes after consumption / Liquid alcohol takes approximately 3.5 hours to reach 0.00.

EXPELLING EXCESS ALCOHOL
When too much alcohol is consumed orally and sits in the stomach, the human body attempts to expel the excess amount by throwing up. This is typical when drinking alcohol in liquid form. Since so little alcohol is introduced into the body by Vapshots, there is never really enough to accumulate to cause the body the need to expel it. There’s simply not enough going in to start with.1/60th of a 1oz shot equating to 0.49 ml is injected into the serving bottle, which is then partially vaporized for each Vapshot. This results in a tiny amount multiple times lower than even published standards for extended exposure in the workplace.
BINGE DRINKING – LIQUID ALCOHOL VS. VAPSHOTS
With a traditional drink it takes approximately 20 minutes before the majority of the alcohol reaches your small intestines, followed by the pancreas and then the liver. During this time, it is possible the eventual effects of the drink will not have manifested physically yet, making the individual think he or she can continue to consume more alcohol. Often times if the individual stacks their drinks, meaning shot after shot or drink after drink, they won’t know the total effects until it’s too late and have over consumed. The worse part of all this is it will take hours for the alcohol to break down to allow them to be sober again. (Reference for this information is: http://alcoholism.about.com/od/work/qt/How-Long-Does-Alcohol-Stay.htm)
Vapshots have an almost immediate effect so the individual will know much quicker and be warned of the effects of the alcohol they just ingested. In addition each Vapshot only lasts about 10 to 15 minutes. It leaves the body much faster than drinking so it’s hard to accumulate a lot of it like drinking. If you are trying to consume one Vapshot after another, by the fifth one you are consuming, most of the first one will already be out of your system.
PRECISION VS. QUANTITY
Vapshot is designed to put just the right amount of alcohol into your system to give you the desired effects of an alcohol buzz.Drinking is a way to achieve the same result but using a comparatively more massive amount of alcohol that requires your body to use its organs to buffer the excess alcohol or other mechanisms like throwing up to expel it.Why would you soak your entire body in alcohol to catch a buzz when a small, precise amount will do the same?
VAPSHOT INHALATION LEVELS
In order to show consuming Vapshots were well within published safety levels, which would take into account concerns such as the prevention of alcohol poisoning, we used OSHA’s safety level specifically dealing with inhaling ethyl alcohol. It is applicable to our products because in both instances we are measuring the accumulation of ethyl alcohol in the lungs, wither it’s a person standing continuously in an entire room filled with alcohol vapors or breathing it from the serving bottle of a Vapshot a few times per hour.
The OSHA safety standard is as follows: the weighted average of a person breathing in an environment containing 1900mg/m(3) of ethyl alcohol vapors for the duration of eight hours, which is calculated by taking the total amount of ethyl alcohol vapors breathed in over seven hours divided by eight.
OSHA Safety Standards can be found here: https://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=standards&p_id=9992
OSHA Sampling and Analytical Methods / Ethyl Alcohol (Organic Method #100) can be found here: (CLICK HERE).
Given that, we have the following:
- A person (men) breathes in and out about 6 liters per minute
- There are 1000 liters in a m(3)
- If the limit for the amount or ethyl alcohol in a room is 1900mg/m(3) then there are 1.9mg/liter
- If a person breathes in and out 6 liters per minute that means 11.4mg of alcohol is breathed in per minute (1.9 x 6 = 11.4)
- That means 684mg of alcohol is breathed in every hour (11.4 x 60 = 684)
- The total amount of alcohol breathed in during seven hours of an eight hour period is 4788mg (684 x 7 = 4788)
- This amounts to a weighted average of 599 mg per hour (4788 / 8 = 599)
To calculate the amount of alcohol accumulated consuming a Vapshot every 10 minutes for 7 out of 8 hours, we have the following:
- Based on laboratory testing, each Vapshot contains 39mg of alcohol
- Each hour a person would accumulate 234mg of alcohol (39 x 6 = 234)
- The total amount of alcohol accumulated by consuming 6 Vapshots per hour for 7 out of 8 hours is 1,638 mg (234 x 7 = 1638)
- This amounts to a weighted average of 205 mg per hour (1638 / 8 = 205)
As demonstrated, consuming a Vapshot every 10 minutes for 7 out of 8 hours straight is over 2.9 times less than what the published safety standard level allows. Because we don’t expect or suggest that anyone actually consume alcohol continuously for 8 hours, the actual alcohol accumulation would be much lower. (Please note: OSHA does not test or endorse products, they only provide the safety standards)
GLYCOL AND GLYCERINE FREE
Unlike e-cigarettes, Vapshots do not contain glycol or glycerine. There is no introduction of any additional chemicals or compounds when consuming a Vapshot other than the liquor in vapor and liquid form. Designed to be offered as single serving portions, Vapshot is not a system for continual and constant delivery of vapors.
NO HEAT OR CHEMICAL REACTIONS
The Vapshot vaporization process does not require any heat, which can produce vapors that may cause a burning sensation when consumed. In fact, Vapshot can be served at room temperature or even chilled. Other vaporization products use either heat or a chemical reaction to vaporize the alcohol, thereby introducing factors that may be a negative to health and safety. Vapshot is not in that same category of products.
ALCOHOL IN LUNGS EVEN WHEN YOU DRINK
A common misconception is when a person drinks alcohol, it’s not the same as consuming alcohol in vapor form because the liquid does not make direct contact with the lungs. However, the truth is when alcohol is consumed in liquid form, it is processed by the body and introduced into the bloodstream and is absolutely transferred into the lungs as well as other vital organs. This is exactly why breathalyzers are used as the preferred method of detecting alcohol in a person’s body, because drinking spirits introduces alcohol into the lungs.
YOU ARE VAPORIZING ALCOHOL EVERY TIME YOU DRINK
Contrary to belief, every time you enjoy a drink containing spirits, you are in fact inhaling vaporized alcohol. When you sniff a glass of wine or simply breathe in after taking a sip of your favorite whiskey, alcohol in vapor form is being introduced into your lungs.
The nature of alcohol is to turn into vapor form when introduced to heat and / or air, which is exactly what happens in your nasal cavity or mouth. Often times orally ingested spirits remain inside your mouth and throat for extended periods of time, therefore you are in essence vaporizing alcohol for hours.
Depending on the amount of alcohol you may consume, which being in concentrated liquid form has a vastly larger concentration of alcohol and much longer duration of effect, it’s highly possible you are placing more alcohol in vapor form into your lungs than a Vapshot in any given time period.
Because Vapshot is served in a regulated per serving size, it’s possible to quantify the levels of intoxication and levels of acceptable ethyl alcohol in the lungs as shown above, which are both significantly lower than consumption of a liquid shot or cocktail.
