The final ingredient is pharmaceutical-grade nicotine, and all juice manufacturers make their product available in varying nicotine strengths. They range from ridiculous (up to 36 milligrams per milliliter—basically a Lucky Strike with the filter ripped off) all the way down to nothing at all. That’s right, zero.

Why? Because there’s a lot of legislation out there (both pending and passed) limiting where people can vape. So make sure you’re vaping where it’s legal and where it won’t piss anyone off to the point where they’ll try to make it illegal.
Over the last few years, manufacturers and vendors have been testing their products for these chemicals, sharing the results with consumers, and altering recipes to eliminate them. That process really ramped up towards the end of last year when researchers published a paper in Nicotine and Tobacco Research that found, of the 159 sweet and creamy flavored e-liquids tested, 74 percent had DA, AP, or both.

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.
With cigarettes, if you lose your cherry you can always light it up again, but once your battery loses its charge it’ll take a lot longer for it to come back to life. Because of this, it’s always recommended to carry around a fully charged spare battery (or two). Just remember the saying: “two is one, and one is none.”

But the difference is that the ultimate crusade of many vaping evangelists is personal health. If vaping is on the right side of history, it’s about time the electronic cigarette business looks beyond the conventions both literal and figurative, beyond VAPE Magazine and the brick and mortar stores. And that starts with making vaping more accessible.
