E-liquid in mouth

E-liquid in mouth is poisonous! All safety information instructs you to seek medical advice if e-liquid is consumed. Electric cigarettes and vaporizers turn glycerol, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerol and nicotine into an aerosol, that is inhaled. Are these chemical based products harmful to us?

Side effects of e-liquid in the mouth may include nausea, headaches, skin rash/irritation, chest pains and heart palpitations. Nicotine is poisonous and propylene glycol is used in the manufacture of pesticides and other products. Although it is thought to have little effect if consumed by humans and is deemed safe by the F.D.A. However further studies need to be conducted into the long-term health effects of e-liquid consumption and skin contact. On the food and drug administrations website you will find lists of experimental research that is being carried out right now, they are asking questions about the long and short term effect to humans.

The odd drop or splatter from your vape will not be fatal do not worry, however it may have other side effects like the ones listed above.

Although, as little as 0.1 mg/kg for children is considered to be enough for a fatal dose. Very alarming as the average e-liquid bottle contains a lot more than 0.1 mg with strengths up to 34 mg being sold.

Other side effects of e-liquid consumption

E-liquid as we know contains nicotine, too much nicotine can lead to death. Other side effects from over use may include mouth ulcers and blisters. This is worsened by frequent use and a craving for nicotine. The full effect of frequently getting e-liquid in the mouth is not yet known and only time and studies will tell.

Other effects from over use can also include headaches, nausea, chest pain, heart palpitations and visual impairment. If any of these symptoms occur you should stop using your smoking device and if they persist seek medical advice/treatment. When using vaporizing products care and attention should be payed to all safety information, e-liquid should never be swallowed or put in the mouth.

If you do get these symptoms you should try and make some changes to the way you are vaping, try using a lower strength liquid and taking fewer puffs. It is common when you switch from tobacco that you will hardly put the vape down and always be puffing, this can lead to headaches, ulcers and sores in your mouth.

Can you drink vape juice? Stupid question, of course you can drink vape juice. You open a bottle and squirt it in your mouth, but!!! Why would you wan’t to drink vape juice? I know the sweet flavors of tropical fruit vape juice, or the sound of beer flavor vape juice sounds like you should drink it. But do not drink vape juice! nicotine is a poison and if you consume enough you will die! If you drink just a little there will be other side effects as listed all the way through the article. So please do not drink vape juice, do not put any in friends drink when you are drunk and for god’s sake keep vape juice out of the reach of children. It will only take a few cases of idiocy or children dying through drinking vape juice to bring the regulators crashing in. Then there would be more laws and stuff past and vaping would become more expensive.

Faulty products that leak e-liquid in the mouth should not be allowed for sale. Especially as e-liquid can kill and relatively small amounts can cause harm. Tighter tougher regulation is required to make sure faulty cheap products are not sold that can lead to death.

 

E-cigs Safety information

E-cigs safety e-liquid in mouth

E-cigs safety info:

WARNINGS: May contain traces of nuts e-cigs safety. Toxic if swallowed. Very toxic if in contact with skin . Keep locked up and out of the way of children. In case of accident or if you feel unwell seek medical advice immediately.

Above is the standard warning label or allergy advice on one of the most popular electronic smoking brands VIP. I would like to point out several points after the obligatory may contain traces of nuts message. TOXIC if swallowed and VERY TOXIC if it comes in contact with skin! Other safety info instructs the user to wear gloves when re-filling the e-liquid. Also if any liquid spills on to your clothes take them off and wash immediately!

It’s clear that we are not supposed, under any circumstances, to get e-liquid on our skin or to ingest it. Unless it is vaporized by a vaporizer. The question is why are cheap non-recyclable products coming on to the market that are unregulated? The products are unreliable and often leak TOXIC liquid. The answer being quite obvious: profit driven corporations.

How much nicotine does it take to kill?

The amount of nicotine that it takes to kill a human varies between individuals; height, weight and age all play a factor, as does the way the nicotine enters the body. Through fatal incidents and human experimentation, the believed fatal dose is around 30-60 mg. Or roughly the amount contained in 2 cigarettes.

Which causes great concern as poorly manufactured “cheap” products often leak liquid on to the skin. I myself have experienced problems with e-cigs safety. Appollo e-cigs caused blisters on my lips. Sometimes the liquid would come through un-vaporized and go into my mouth. I experienced chest pains also maybe from over use, it is hard to quit tobacco. So ended up using the e-cig a lot.

When the level of nicotine in the blood stream rises to dangerous levels the body goes into toxic shock. This not to be confused with toxic shock syndrome. This can cause a number of symptoms and range from nausea to numb limbs. Nicotine poisoning can occur in a variety of ways. Over consumption of e-liquid is a growing concern. Nicotine poisoning incidents are likely to rise accordingly as the number of new electronic smokers increases.

Regulating e-liquid consumption

Over consumption of e-juice is something that is troubling the regulatory bodies and finding a way to limit an individuals consumption is something at the forefront of their discussions. The FDA and MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency). They are talking about regulating nicotine consumption and this may lead to product changes.

Vaping products are being changed and released before upcoming regulation in 2016. This in an attempt to stay strong in the market and prove they are worthy of a medical licence. They will need a medicinal licence post 2016 in order to produce e-smoking related products.
