Socialites e-cig are they safe?

Socialites e-cig

Are socialites e-cig safe? Well that depends on what you deem as safe I guess. There has only been a few years research into the health impact of electronic smoking. Illnesses such as cancer can take years develop. So short term research is not enough to confirm the safety of socialites e-cigs and other brands.

Socialites e-liquid

The e-liquid produced by socialites contains 3 main ingredients: Nicotine, Propylene glycol and glycerol. Nicotine is very toxic and a small amount can be fatal, Glycerol is safer – a simple sugar alcohol compound so no real worries here. There is some controversy surrounding Propylene Glycol with arguments for and against the level of its safety. It is used in many products from soaps and shampoo to foods and drugs. It is deemed safe for use by global regulatory bodies such as the MHRA and FDA.

Really wasn’t that long ago that we were told that tobacco was good for our health, with some doctors prescribed it as treatment for ailments – including sore throats! So should we be concerned about socialites e-cig? With any new technology there is an element of skepticism into its safety and feeling like we are guinea pigs for this new industry can be quite distressing.

Problems with socialites e-cigs

After using socialites now for over 6 months I have noticed a wide range of problems. I have used both the two part e-cig and the two vaporizers and encountered similar problems with both. The problems have caused me to get e-liquid in my mouth, on my skin and on my clothes. Which is extremely alarming as the safety info on the e-liquid bottles is clearly marked as toxic.

Problems I have encountered with socialites e-cig

  1. Battery over heating and causing very hot vapor entering my mouth and throat.
  2. E-liquid shooting out of the cartomiser into my mouth.
  3. Battery life drastically effected by the temperature (too cold and life is shortened)
  4. Faulty cartomiser, I screwed on a brand new cartomiser nothing came out. No vapor was produced.
  5. Too many empty cartomiser that you can’t recycle, surely any new industry should be producing goods that are 100% recyclable.

Problems that I have experienced with the socialite vaporizer

  1. Cracked inhalator, it seems every time I drop the socialites vaporizer onto a hard surface the clear plastic cracks causing juice leakage.
  2. When you take the mouth piece out to refill with e-liquid some of the juice doesn’t always go down into the chamber. So when you re-attach the mouth piece liquid comes out.
  3. E-liquid going into your mouth when you inhale; this happens way more frequently with the socialites vaporizer compared to the socialites e-cig.
  4. Sitting on the vaporizer and breaking it, often I keep the socialites vaporizer in my pocket and forget it’s there. It will break and sometimes leak if you sit on it.
  5. Unscrewing the battery, sometimes the wrong piece will become detached and if the chamber is full with juice, the contents will spill out all over my hands and clothes.

 

It is fair to say some of the problems that occur are my own fault and with more care and attention they may not happen. Nevertheless, should products that contain potentially fatal ingredients be allowed to be sold? People that smoke are often busy people like myself and whilst working I keep the e-cig or vaporizer in my pocket. If I forget that it is there and sit down it breaks and sometimes leaks. So better products should be sold that are stronger and pose no risk of leaking toxic e-juice.

Socilites e-cig and vaporizer positives.

After listing the bad points that I have found with socialites e-cigs it is only fair that I list the good points as well, so here goes.

  1. They have a range of great flavors which make the vaping experience really pleasant.
  2. The socialites e-cig is small and compact which allows for discreet vaping.
  3. The e-cig is very easy to use, this makes the transition from smoking tobacco cigarettes really easy.
  4. Health! I feel so much better now I have quit tobacco. My skin looks better, healthier and I am more vibrant. My fitness is improving I can exercise for longer without getting out of breath.
  5. The smell, I don’t stink like an old dirty ashtray any more! Which has pleased all my non smoking friends and I am happy as I am still getting all the nicotine I require. Smoking socialites has made me a lot happier in general.

 Socialites e-cig overview

All in all socialites e-cig and socialites vaporizers offer a very pleasant vaping experience. There are a variety of e-liquid/juice flavors to choose from and both vaping devices are pretty good and reliable. There are a few problems with the socilaites e-cig and the socialites vaporizer that I have outlined. This should be taken into account when choosing what brand to vape; although these problems occur among other brands as well.

Socialites e-cig is small and compact and they provide a smooth vape shot, that gives you the nicotine you need instantly, with juicy flavors and a range of traditional tobacco flavors as well. The socialites e-cig is a much better alternative to smoking tobacco, I have noticed a vast improvement in my fitness levels as I can breath a lot better. I don’t get that horrible phlegm that I would cough up every morning that is associated with tobacco smoking and I don’t stink like dirty stale smoke which my girlfriend (a non-smoker) really appreciates. So overall I would say that socialites e-cig has really improved my general well being and health as well as making my girlfriend very happy.

E-medicines?

e-medicines

Vaporizing e-medicines could be an alternative way to treat anything from minor ailments to cancer. It is still in its early research stages as far as flu and lung cancer treatment goes. Though other medicines have been inhaled in a similar way for years. The asthma pump being an obvious example.

Vaporizing has been around for quite some time now. Although it was only five years ago or so that it revolutionized the smoking industry. Millions of smokers that wanted to quit tobacco have switched to electronic devices. However, little information has been made public regarding the research of vaporizing e-medicines

Inhaling vaporized e-medicines

Atomizing e-medicine to treat emphysema, flu and cancer. This potentially opens up a whole new research area in the pharmaceutical industry. E-medicines are an alternative way of administering drugs and medicines. Vaporizing heats the medicine before ingestion. This allows for reactive components to mix into a new compound for precise effective lung treatment.

Vaped medicine would obviously be inhaled into the lungs. This doesn’t just offer an effective treatment for lung disease though. It could also be used to treat other ailments such as headaches, migraines and rheumatism. The inhaled medicinal cocktail would be absorbed into the blood stream through capillaries in the lungs. Making this a more accurately targeted faster-acting cure or prevention. This compared to orally taken medicines. Can you imagine a vaped paracetamol or atomized pain killers?

Vaporized medicinal cannabis

Medicinal cannabis vaporization is already taking place in the USA as a treatment for some ailments. Cannabis is not the only substance that can be vaped though. There is multitude of potential medicinal vaping possibilities that are sub-dependent on forthcoming regulations. Vaporizing cannabis is becoming very popular. With more and more being sold every year it will be soon be the social norm.

First vaping device

Herbert Gilbert filed a patent for the first ever electronic smoking device in 1963. At this time tobacco smoking was not perceived as a health threat. In fact to the contrary. Cigarettes were so ingrained as the status quo, in the social psyche that Gilbert simply didn’t have the custom. So his product idea remained just that – an idea.

Herbert Gilbert’s first vaporizers 50 years ago has now lead to new brands emerging. Like V2, Blu, VIP, Ego and Socialites electronic cigarettes to name a few. The electric brands have a range of devices like the electronic vape pen, vaping pipe and atomizers. So will we see in the future that these devices are not only being used to feed a nicotine addiction. But also being used to treat disease and illnesses?

E-medicines a reality?

How far are we from seeing cold and flu medicines being vaped? Offering a more targeted, effective treatment compared to orally taken cough syrups and capsules. In the future will leading cough sweet manufacturers like Halls and Strepsils branch out into the e-liquid market? With cough syrup e-liquid?

If the current research continues to prove that electronic smoking offers a healthier alternative than that of smoking tobacco. Then it could very well be the social norm in under ten years. It could be that even a non-smoker vapes medicines. With e-medicines that are vaporized in a controlled dose as and when symptoms occur.

New European regulations that are due to be passed in 2016. Will they continue to allow the sale and distribution of e-cigs, vaporizers and electronic pipes? There’s no doubt there will be a whole range of companies currently operating in different fields, who will embrace e-liquid medicine onto their product lines.
