Yes, it’s true; we’ve entered a new age. We’ve realised and truly want to do something to turn away from the health risks of that dirty, old-fashioned, potentially carcinogenic activity that’s smoking… and have found a brilliant way to avoid those risks via throwing ourselves into vaping and using by using an electronic vaporiser (or e-cig) device…

The anti-smoking solution?

The electronic vaporiser is manufactured not just to ensure the user inhales far fewer chemical compounds than when taking a drag on a cigarette (and, of course, that includes far in a way fewer seriously hazardous chemicals), but also ensures those around the vaper can inhale nothing toxic at all; there’s no second-hand smoke or its equivalent.

Moreover, unlike a cigarette or, indeed, a joint, the odour given off by a vaporiser tends to sweet, fruity or not very noticeable at all – it’s all depended on the flavour of the delicious stuff the vaper actually vapes.

What’s in e-liquid?

And what about what an e-cig device user vapes exactly? Often people ponder on what makes up the juice that goes into an e-cig device. Well, e-liquid (or vape juice), it’s basically a man-made juice that fills the tank – or clearomiser – of a device, is heated via power from a battery and transformed to vapour to be inhaled. Most e-juices feature as ingredients the chemicals that are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG), in addition to distilled water and added flavouring (the latter being exactly the sort that’s commonly found in food). Oh and, of course, the (on its own) addictive but relatively harmless nicotine – to deliver the ‘hit’ that’ll help pull would-be-ex-smokers away from the ciggies.

For its part, PG’s an organic compound that helps deepen and promulgate the plumes and plumes of vapour transformed from vape juice, while the other e-liquid base compound, VG, is made up of vegetable oils and, comprising a thicker consistency than PG can and aid an e-juice to deliver a particularly smoother throat hit, which makes it ideal for sub-ohm vaping (deep-inhale and potent vaping). Additionally, the harshness of a vape may be a little reduced by the distilled water in the juice.

What makes up an e-cig device?

Something else a smoker looking to quit tobacco for vaping might be curious about is what the constituent parts of an e-cig device are. Should they better understand and familiarise themselves with them, the easier they’ll find it to master such a device; the more likely they’ll find themselves at ease with vaping as an activity

Every vape pen, mod (advanced and specialised e-cig device) is effectively built around a tank, a coil, a cotton wick connected to the heated-up coil (which, in turn, comes into contact with the e-liquid and heats it up, turning it to vapour) and a spout-like ‘drip tip’, through which the vaper inhales what’s inside.

Additionally, it should be noted that there are also oil vaporisers. A variation on a vaporiser device intended for e-liquid, oil vaporises are, yes, intended for vaping oil (such as CBDfx vape oil). Many people who use dry herbs, whether for recreation or medicinal purposes, have identified vaping as a way to enjoy the attributes of herbs without enduring the dangers from smoking them. Oil pens then operate in a similar way to their e-juice-containing cousins, as you might expect.

Is vaping for you?

Vaping, it’s fair to say, comes with its inherent pros and cons – like anything then. An e-cig device and e-liquid can either help you quit or they can make you consume more nicotine in the justification that it won’t cause cancer. Many people become more addicted to nicotine, yes – and yet many more besides don’t; being committed to trying to give up tobacco and, thus, switching over to vaping because they’ve heard it’s an excellent anti-smoking activity.

And, then, after a while, they manage to lower the nicotine levels they vape, as they start to get hooked instead on the terrific flavours and vaping scene (e.g. sub-ohming and cloud-chasing) – preferring to consume instead the likes of 100 VG e liquid UK than old-fashioned nicotine. In the end then, it’s up to the individual to control how little they choose to smoke, how frequently they vape – and exactly they do it.
