What is Vaping?
Basic Vaping Information
Vaping - Vaping is when you use heat to atomize an eLiquid, leaf or wax for the purpose of releasing nicotine or scents to be inhaled. Vaping the liquid, leaf or wax means that it is not actually burning, therefore it produces no smoke, ash or tar. Most people agree that vaping is healthier for this reason. Because leaves/herbs/wax and eLiquid are vastly different in how they are vaped, there are 2 distinct categories for Vaporizers: Dry Herb or Wax devices, and eLiquid devices, commonly referred to as eCigs, eCigarettes, vapes, APVs (Advanced Personal Vaporizer) or Mods. Devices like the one pictured have the ability to switch tanks, allowing you to use the Vaporizer as an eCig or Dry Herb vape.
eLiquid / eJuice - eLiquid is the fluid that contains varying levels of nicotine and flavoring in an eCig or Advanced Personal Vaporizer. Some devices use disposable cartridges, while others, like those that you see producing large vapor “clouds” use refillable eJuice tanks. The juice itself is made from few ingredients. Besides liquid Nicotine, they contain natural and artificial flavors, Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin. The levels of nicotice vary to allow for one to wean themself off when trying to quit smoking.
Vegetable Glycerine (VG) - A colorless, odorless liquid that is produced from plant oils, typically palm oil, soy, or coconut oil. VG is the ingredient that creates vapor clouds.
Propylene Glycol (PG) - A viscous colourless liquid which is nearly odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste. PG is used often in food and is sometimes added to antifreeze because it actually makes it safer if ingested. PG is the ingredient that carries the flavor of the ejuice.
