The average person has probably heard two things about the vapor produced by electronic cigarettes: either it’s perfectly harmless, or it’s worse than cigarettes, forest fires, and nuclear explosions combined. You’ve probably heard more than once that “not enough studies have been done.”
Vape Shops In Machipongo, VA With 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.
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.
PAX wants to do for vaping what the Apple II did for the home computer: provide a simple, elegant product that anyone can use conspicuously and easily. PAX vaporizers are discreet, effective and expensive; one stoner Mic spoke to called the first PAX vaporizer “the iPhone of vapes.” The JUUL, PAX’s vape to replicate cigarette, has a mint flavor that’s the closest thing to smoking a Newport this writer’s ever tasted. PAX has shown up in a number of tech blogs and men’s magazines with critical acclaim. The company is interested in getting PAX in front of chefs, designers and fashion influencers.
Five Pawns is a high-end e-liquid manufacturer based in California. The company commissioned a lab to test its liquids as early as May of 2014. But the company didn’t release any results publicly until June of this year, after a UK-based e-cigarette retailer published its own lab results on Five Pawns products. Five Pawns ordered those results taken down via a cease and desist order, and wrote on its website that those tests were “fraudulent,” publishing its own lab results instead.
A 2012 research paper entitled Levels of selected carcinogens and toxicants in vapor from electronic cigarettes: “We found that the e-cigarette vapors contained some toxic substances. The levels of the toxicants were 9–450 times lower than in cigarette smoke and were, in many cases, comparable with trace amounts found in the reference product . . . our findings are consistent with the idea that substituting tobacco cigarettes with e-cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to selected tobacco-specific toxicants. E-cigarettes as a harm reduction strategy among smokers unwilling to quit, warrants further study.”
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 vaping wants to go mainstream, it needs to include women. A handful of surveys and research papers show that women are anywhere from 1.27 to 2.05 times more likely than men to try vaping. But in terms of advertising? The disconnect should be obvious by now: Men are 1.25 times as likely to see a vaping-related advertisement.
