And I don’t mean “kid-friendly” flavors like watermelon and blueberry—although I do have a good blueberry vape if that’s your bag. One of our blends is an extremely complex mixture of oatmeal, rum, raisin, and anise. Another is an ice-blue, damn near unidentifiable tart-sweet menthol blend called Heisenberg. We’re not going for the kiddie market here.
2With a cigarette, you just need some hands, your mouth, and a flame. E cigs also require some hands and a mouth, but no flame is required – it’s like magic! Okay, it’s not like magic, it’s just electricity (although, electricity does remind me a lot of magic). So instead of a fire, you need to figure out how to operate your e cig – here’s how.
But while there are regulations on diacetyl to keep workers safe, there are currently no regulations at all on e-cigarettes in the US, and that means DA and AP can be added to vaping liquids in the same levels as are allowed in food products. There hasn’t been any research that shows the effects of smoking e-cigarette liquids that contain DA or AP, but many manufacturers and consumers are concerned that it could have similarly dangerous risks.
That said, very few carcinogenic chemicals have been found in e-cigarette vapors, and those present only appear to be in trace quantities – far less than in burning tobacco and similar or less than in recognized nicotine replacement therapies.
According to the study, nearly all of the 2.6 million adults who vape in Britain are current or former smokers using e-cigarettes to help them quit. Only a small fraction are teenagers.
Compare this to a truly negligible success rate for traditional nicotine replacement therapy like the patch and gum—upon which some pharmaceutical companies hang their hats—and it’s easy to see where the opposition comes from. Perhaps this is why the United States Food and Drug Administration is pushing legislation that will hand the reins of our industry over to Big Tobacco—those staunch guardians of public health—while putting companies like mine six feet under.
You’re not going to have to inhale as hard as you do with a traditional cigarette, so keep that in mind for your first puff. There’s also some debate regarding the superiority of mouth-hits over lung-hits (or vice-versa). Personally, I like lung-hits because I feel like I get a better nicotine buzz, but there are people who prefer mouth hits because there’s better flavor and more vapor. Either way, do what feels right to you, and don’t let anyone tell you what to do (whateva – I do what I want)!
If you want something that’s easy to carry and doesn’t require any maintenance, there’s something for you.
