Smoking and tobacco products are popular among people of all ages. The drug in tobacco products is nicotine, which is a highly addictive substance. Nicotine causes an instant release of adrenaline, increase in blood pressure, heart rate, and rate of breathing. Most people believe it is the nicotine which is most dangerous. This is not necessarily the case. The additional chemicals in tobacco products, such as the tar in cigarettes, can be just as deadly and carcinogenic. Consumer of tobacco products can find alternatives. One popular alternative are e-cigarettes.
What are E-Cigarettes?
An e-cigarette, also known as a personal vaping device, is an electronic device that uses heat to vaporize propylene glycol. The sensation is the same as if the consumer were smoking a cigarette. There are different flavours available, and consumers can choose them with nicotine or without.
E-cigarettes were patented in 2003 by a Chinese pharmacist. Even though the product was developed in 2003, it did not hit public markets until 2006. Since its inception, it has grown in popularity and helped raise awareness as to the dangers of traditional smoking, and it also offers an appealing alternative to those who wish to still smoke, but would like to experience it in a healthier way.
There are many different kinds of products to choose from. Consumers can use either disposable or rechargeable vaping devices. The disposable devices are designed to be thrown away after a certain number of puffs, while the rechargeable ones are made of two pieces, one of which goes on a charger.
The mini vape pen is a common choice among vapers who want something that is stylish, discreet, and quiet. This type of vaping device is great for social situations, without the smell of actual cigarette smoke. There are all different styles of vaping pens, some mimic the look of real cigarettes, while others do not.
What are the Advantages to Vaping Devices?
There are several advantages to vaping over smoking. There isn’t any smoke produced when one vapes, which means that the many chemicals present in cigarettes are not present in e-cigarettes. With e-cigarettes there isn’t any ash, carbon monoxide or tar produced during vaping, while there is when one smokes. Vapers do not experience yellow teeth or the typical cigarette smell on their clothes or fingers.
Studies have also shown that in most cases using e-cigarettes is less expensive than smoking cigarettes. Consumers of traditional cigarettes can spend as much as six times the amount on cigarettes as they would on e-cigarettes. That adds up to a nice chunk of change. Not only are e-cigarettes less expensive, but they are better for the body than traditional cigarettes.
