Are you new to vaping? Do you want to learn more about the process? If so, you have certainly come to the right place. Here, we are going to explore the wonderful world of vaping. We will draw the curtain back and reveal to you the mysteries of the vape-world…which, actually, isn’t very mysterious at all, despite the fluffy language! It is simply the 21st Century’s version of smoking, and if you want to learn more about it, then read on.
Vaping: What Is It?
Vaping is similar to smoking, but rather than inhaling smoke, you inhale vapour. The vapour is generated via the vaporiser (it looks a little bit like a pen with an old-fashioned cigarette holder attached to the end) or an e-cigarette (looks much like a cigarette, apart from it’s made of metal). Vapour is simply liquid in a different form, so there is no smoke, although it does look and feel very similar.
What Is a Vaporiser?
You use the vaporiser to create vapour and then you inhale and exhale that vapour in the same way you would a cigarette. The vapour comes from the heating up of e-liquids inside the vaporiser.
There are two types of vaporiser: the e-cigarette and the vaporiser (vape). They come in a huge range of sizes, colours, and shapes.
With a vaporiser, you buy the e-liquid separately and you simply add it to the ‘tank’. With an e-cigarette, you buy special cartridges that you screw to the bottom of the unit – these are yellow, and represent the filter section on a normal cigarette.
Is There Nicotine in an E-Cigarette or Vaporiser?
The answer to this depends on which liquid/cartridge you choose. You can use both nicotine and non-nicotine cartridges and e-liquids. The majority of people that use e-cigarettes and vaporisers do choose to have nicotine in their premium e-liquids.
In addition to this, different liquids will have differing amounts of nicotine. The usual amounts are 3 mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg. it refers to the amount of nicotine per ML of liquid. To put it into context, a typical strength cigarette contains around 4mg of nicotine. You take around 20 puffs per cigarette, which equates to 0.2mg of nicotine per puff of a cigarette.
You get around 3600 puffs from a 15ml e-liquid and you get around 1mg per puff for the full strength 24mg cartridge, meaning you only need 3 puffs to vape the equivalent of a cigarette. That’s quite potent, so do be careful if you choose a high-strength product like this. The lower the mg of nicotine, the more puffs you have to take to achieve the same ‘buzz’.
Can You Buy Different Flavour Liquids
Yes. This is another thing that makes vaping so much better than smoking. You don’t have to stick to the same flavour. The premium e-liquids are very tasty – our personal favourite is pancake!
