Vaporizer liquid (“e-juice”) is heated inside an electronic cigarette (“e-cig”) to produce vapor intended for inhalation. Unlike traditional smoking, vaping does not emit any smelly tobacco smoke or ash. A few studies suggest that electronic cigarettes do not leave tar in the lungs and do not make the mouth feel raw and dry like traditional cigarettes.
Details About Vaporizer Liquids
Electronic juice (“e-juice”), also referred to as “e-liquid”. “vape juice” or “vape oil”, is usually comprised of four ingredients, each derived from vegetable products:
All vaping liquids contain around 75 – 80% of vegetable glycerin, which maintains the coordination between flavor and taste and helps bind nicotine to other ingredients. Referred to as the base of vaping liquid it is combined with propylene glycol or polyethylene glycol as available to get thick and consistent smoke. Vegetable glycerin is a colorless, non-toxic, and commonly used in the food industry.
Food Grade Flavoring
Comprise of flavors commonly used in fruit candies like strawberry, mint, and other oil-based essences. Food grade flavoring makes up about 10 – 20% of the e-liquid. Propylene glycol is an odorless compound that tastes mildly sweet. It is a common food additive in sweetened frozen desserts and even in topical creams and gel formulations. Polyethylene Glycol is a low-grade toxic used in combination with glycerin as an anti-foaming agent.
Nicotine and Distilled Water
These two ingredients make up the remaining 3-5%, though this can be increased or decreased based upon the desired potency of the e-liquid. Nicotine is a potent alkaloid extracted from tobacco as a yellow oily liquid. Warning: nicotine is an addictive substance with adverse health effects.
Can Vaporizer Liquids Help To Reduce Smoking?
Though vape pens are relatively new gadgets, they have the edge over other nicotine replacement techniques used to help smokers recover from their addiction. Choose a product with or without nicotine to slowly reduce your smoking frequency over time.
Studies on Vaping
The American Association of Public Health Physicians suggests that smokers who are unable to quit the habit with other therapeutic measures should consider tapering off with electronic cigarettes. The British Wellness Association has also asked health workers to suggest electronic cigarettes to smokers as a low-risk product.
However, there is an ongoing argument about the ability of electronic cigarettes to help smokers quit smoking. Mainstream health workers and wellness professionals concede that e-cigs can potentially help smokers quit.
