    Phill Busardo drops B. E-liquids

    I'm not sure what has happened, but Phil Busardo has ceased to be associated with B. E-liquids and molecule labs.

    I was happy to see him start the line because there's far too many American juice companies that only make 3 and 6mg/ml liquids. They've started to forget about smokers. I also trust his principles because I've listened to his advice for years now, and always found him pretty straight down the line. I know reviewers tend to get a lot of criticism when they start to get more involved in the industry, but really the opportunities to make a real living in the industry are limited to opening a shop, designing hardware, or starting an e-liquid line. To exist as only reviewers they have to have a day job, take endorsements (and stuff up their reputation for impartiality) or do the patreon thing. Phil gave up his day job last year to start the liquid line and do work for molecule labs, right on the cusp of the FDA regulations coming into effect. (8.8.16).

    I don't know what happened, but it seems likely to me to be a matter of principle between Phil and molecule labs that got in the way. I can't imagine why Phil would drop B E-liquids like a hot potato like he has, unless the juice line has contractual obligations to molecule labs, and Phil didn't like something that molecules labs was doing, or forcing him to do. This is all conjecture on my part of course.

    I don't know if this news is interesting to people generally, but it was a jaw dropper for me.

    First I heard about this. Where did you hear he's left them? I haven't tried his juice but I've heard good things. Busardo has always been a great reviewer imo.

    There's a link to his Taste Your Juice announcement in the first post, so it's straight from the horse's mouth.

    He's next, but it he doesn't like photos in the bathroom. Mostly because he looks like a drowned rat LOL
