WHAT IS VAPING?
Vaping simply means to inhale and exhale the vapor produced by an electronic cigarette. It is being used as a smoking alternative in many parts of the world. In comparison to smoking a traditional cigarette, vaping is not a method of combustion, therefore it produces no tar and does not linger in the air. In any vaping device, you have a battery or power source, connected to an atomizer. The atomizer heats up when the power source is activated, and essentially heats the liquid to the point of which vapor is produced.
WHO INVENTED VAPING?
Hon Lik, a Chinese Pharmacist who was trying to rid his own habit to traditional cigarettes by using high dose nicotine patches decided he wanted to create a new way to still inhale nicotine. Using food grade additives and some ingenuity, the first electronic cigarette was patented and produced in 2003. Since then, many advancements have been made in the electronic cigarette world to provide users with an endless variety of options to use as an alternative.
WHAT IS E-JUICE?
E-Juice consists of only a handful of ingredients:
- Propylene Glycol or PG
- Vegetable Glycerin or VG
- Natural and Artificial Food Grade Flavourings
- And Nicotine (unless you choose to use 0 nicotine ejuice)
E-Juice typically comes in many different types, and can be very subjective when it comes to finding the right flavour and nicotine strength for your needs/wants. It's not uncommon for one person to absolutely love a flavour, while another person absolutely despises it. E-Juice also tends to taste differently depending on which type of vaping set up someone is using. In store we typically carry various juices from 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg. When discussing mg or milligrams of nicotine, it means mg/ml or milligrams per milliliter.
