Where to buy HQD Vapes in Australia?
The sale of vaping products containing nicotine within Australia is illegal. An unintended consequence of Australia's conservative approach to regulating vaping products has meant there is a black market within Australia where HQD vapes are sold under the counter in convenience stores across Australia.
The only legal way for an Australian vaper to purchase a vaping product containing nicotine is with a Prescription. Vaping products containing nicotine can be ordered through the following methods provided you have a valid medical prescription:
- An Australian registered pharmacy (very few pharmacists currently stock vaping products containing nicotine)
- Importing from overseas online under the personal importation scheme.

All of the vaping products we stock come from reputable manufacturers based in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. Manufacturers who are based in these countries are required to follow strict quality guidelines including periodical emissions testing and ensuring products meet product safety standard regulations as prescribed by local health authorities.
Safety of HQDs
Due to HQDs recent success, there are reports of fake, imitation HQD devices sold in market. If you do purchase a HQD, make sure you order from a reputable retailer.
In September 2021, HQD successfully registered its Cuvie range in the United Kingdom. Registering a vaping product in the United Kingdom means the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is satisfied that a manufacturer has provided sufficient information to show that the respective product meets the prescribed product safety standards.

Both of these devices are compatible with the RELX Pro Pods, which cost between $8.90NZD and $10NZD each depending on the quantity ordered.
