It sells vapes that do not contain nicotine, THC, CBD, or any other popular vapable element. The Solstice is an all-caffeine vape that delivers a measured dose of the stimulant via aerosol in a convenient, portable vaping device.

The ex-Rise vapes Solstice contains absolutely no nicotine or any harmful chemicals: Propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, white lemon oil extract, yellow lemon oil extract, maltol, menthol, guarana berry, cranberry extract, caffeine.

It is also an air-activated device with no buttons or control panels on it, so users can take a puff whenever and wherever they want. It has a disposable design and is meant to last for around 400 puffs, typical for most disposable-style vapes.

Despite containing caffeine, the Rise is not coffee-flavored. Instead, it features flavors:


Up Close: The Rise — Newly Solstice

The Rise, physically, is not unlike any other typical nicotine or THC or CBD disposable vape. It has a rectangular shape and consists solely of a plastic outer casing that houses an internal battery and liquid tank. It looks a lot like a Puff Bar but has a distinctive, bright-pink color thanks to its namesake flavor, Pink Lemonade.

There is not much information on the Rise website about the specs for the device, but it looks pretty straightforward. It is not intended for hardcore vapers. Here is the list of ingredients: Propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, white lemon oil extract, yellow lemon oil extract, maltol, menthol, guarana berry, cranberry extract, caffeine.

The Rise is also not meant to be recharged, so it does not have a USB port to recharge the battery. Again, the Rise is unique for what it offers: a concentrated dose of caffeine and other natural ingredients to give users a refreshing pick-me-up.

The combination of flavors is meant to resemble a glass of pink lemonade, while the aroma is supposed to refresh. The device is intended to last for up to 400 puffs. The company recommends that users take between 10-25 puffs per day to get the most out of the device.

What’s Inside the Rise?

The Rise, according to the company, does not contain any harmful ingredients or other chemicals. The device does not contain any diacetyl — the chemical responsible for the lung disease known as “popcorn lung” — nor does it have any Vitamin E acetate, which is what is believed to be responsible for the vaping illness outbreak last year.

The only ingredients listed on the company website are Propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, white lemon oil extract, yellow lemon oil extract, maltol, menthol, guarana berry, cranberry extract, caffeine.

The Look and Feel

The Rise has no outstanding design features. It is meant to be a disposable device, so it is not meant to last longer than its intended life-span, which is about 300 puffs.

The device is also not reusable or refillable, so once the liquid tank is empty or the battery runs out, the device is obsolete. The Rise is mainly plastic and, apart from its pink color, does not have any other special features.

How Long Does it Last?

The Rise is intended to last for up to 400 puffs, according to the manufacturer. There is no word yet on whether it will last for longer or for less than that.

Most disposable vapes do end up lasting for their intended life-span, but not all do. The Rise could stay for less or for longer, but it is still a new product, and it has not been on the market for very long.

How Does it Work?

The Rise is intended for a universal audience, so it does not come with complicated menus or even buttons.

It is a simple, air-activated device that starts working as soon as you take it out of the box.

All users have to do to start vaping the Rise is to inhale from the mouthpiece end of the device, which then triggers the battery and heats the coil inside the tank.

Is it Like Drinking a Cup of Coffee?

Even though the Rise contains caffeine, it does not taste like coffee. The Rise tastes like lemonade thanks to its mixture of lemon extract and menthol. The Rise’s aroma is also unlike coffee, as it has a sweeter, fruitier smell than what you would expect from a cup of Joe.

Rise Vape Ingredients and Safety

The Rise is supposed to give you energy the way drinking a cup of coffee or energy drinks does, but the “rise” in energy comes maybe after two or three puffs.

Ingesting too much caffeine — as anyone who has had too much coffee once in a while — can lead to headaches and other problems, which is why the company recommends using the Rise only for a limited amount of time each day.

Conclusion: Rise Vape Review: A New Way To Stay Awake and Energized

Would you use a device like the Solstice that has only caffeine? Or would you stick with a traditional cup of coffee? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

The previously known as Rise now presented as Solstice is a new product for people who want to have a convenient energy boost without spending money every day on a cup of coffee. The Rise is a tiny, portable device so that you can take it anywhere with you.

The Solstice is supposed to be more effective at delivering caffeine because it is inhaled, but even inhaling too much caffeine is not good for you. That’s why the company recommends only using the device sporadically throughout the day.

If you are looking for a way to get a quick pick-me-up during the day without having to spend money on a cup of coffee or energy drinks, then the Solstice might be a good choice for you.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
