Vaping has become much more common, but there are still plenty of people out there unsure of how or where to begin with vaping. Although we’ve earned the enthusiast’s reputation for carrying quality ‘high-end’ mods, we haven’t forgotten where our own e-cig experiences began, or how it felt to be almost overwhelmed by the options that exist in the e-cig industry. That being said, we want to offer just as much support and information to those stepping into the e-cig industry for the very first time, as we do for those enthusiasts out there.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VAPING?
No flame, no burning, therefore zero combustion takes places
Vaping addresses the addictive component of smoking, nicotine, without having to combust 600 ingredients into over 4,000 chemicals, with over 50 of them known to be cancer-causing
No risk of “second hand vape” as all that is vaporizing is the PG/VG and nicotine
No unpleasant smell that sticks to your clothing, car, home, breath. E-liquid
Satisfies your craving for nicotine
Allows for you to properly taper off nicotine by using different e-liquids with varying nicotine strength (0mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, 24mg are standard strengths)
Enjoy breathing again!
CAN YOU BRIEFLY EXPLAIN WHAT PG AND VG IS AND WHAT EFFECT IT HAS ON MY LUNGS?
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a thick, sweet liquid, extracted from plants, and is primarily responsible for the vapor produced. It is traditionally employed in the following industries: Food, Pharma, Botanical, and personal care products. Propylene Glycol (PG) is a colorless, non-toxic, odorless liquid, that is responsible for assisting in the delivery of the active ingredient(s), in our case this would be nicotine. The US FDA approves both compounds as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).
I'VE NOTICED THAT I GET THIRSTY AS I CONTINUE TO VAPE; IS THIS NORMAL?
Sometimes, vapers have a dry mouth reaction to PG. Propylene glycol is a humectant, which in short means that it loves water. You can also choose a lower PG:VG to reduce dry mouth for those sensitive to PG. Also, stay hydrated!
DOES NICOTINE CAUSE CANCER?
No. Nicotine is the addictive active ingredient found in cigarettes, therefore is used in e-liquids. Studies have shown that about 50 of the (over) 4,000 combusted chemicals in traditional cigarettes may cause cancer.
I USED TO SMOKE ABOUT A PACK A DAY. WHAT NICOTINE CONCENTRATION OF E-LIQUID SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Although there is no set guidelines, we generally recommend that the customer samples 12mg so they can gauge whether or not more or less nicotine is needed to meet their preference.
WHAT IS THE “CRACKLING” SOUND WHEN I AM VAPING?
This is sound you want to hear; the “crackling” sound means that there is an ideal amount of e-liquid being vaporized by the atomizer.
I HEAR A GURGLING SOUND WHEN I VAPE AND AM BARELY GETTING ANY VAPOR PRODUCTION, IS THIS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN?
This means that your atomizer is flooded with e-liquid. Too much e-liquid causes saturation of the atty’s wick and heating coils, thus making vapor production very difficult as well as making a “bubbling” or ” gurgling” when the vapor attempts to pull (draw) from the device’s drip-tip.
I’VE JUST STARTED TO USE A DRIPPING ATOMIZER AND AM GETTING A BURNT TASTE AFTER 3-4 PULLS, WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
You aren’t doing anything wrong, it just means that the atomizer has vaporized all of the e-liquid in the wick, which occasionally happens when “dripping” into an atomizer. This typically happens after about 3-4 pulls (draws) from a dripping atomizer. Just add a few drops of e-liquid into the atomizer and repeat as needed.
I UNDERSTAND THAT E-CIG VAPOR HAS BEEN PROVEN TO BE SAFE ALTERNATIVE TO ANALOG CIGARETTES, BUT WHAT EXACTLY IS BEING VAPORIZED?
There are only 4 components incorporated into e-liquid: PG/VG, nicotine, and flavoring- all of which are non- toxic (for the exception of nicotine in extremely high doses).
