Nicotine free e liquid, quit the habit!

nicotine free e-liquid

Nicotine free e liquid can be used as an aid to quit smoking. Inhaling or vaping nicotine free vape juice gives the user the experience of smoking. It appeases the throats desire for smoke and keeps the hands busy. Lots of people say when they are quitting smoking that their hands are restless and need something to do. Vaping nicotine free eliquid satisfies all of these habits and is proving to be one the most effective ways to quitting nicotine all together.

Stop smoking with nicotine free e-liquid

Current aids in quitting smoking include nicotine patches, chewing gum and plastic inhalers. They have been on the market for many years now and have helped countless people quit smoking. Are these products any where near as good as vaping nicotine free e-liquid?

Vaping nicotine free e liquid is in my opinion the best way to quit smoking. You can use e-liquid that contains nicotine at the start. Then gradually wean yourself down in the strength of e-liquid until you nicotine free e-liquid. An example would be if you were a heavy smoker then start on 18 mg e-liquid, which is strong.

On a monthly program of lowering nicotine dosage. You slowly work your way down through the strengths until you’re using nicotine free juice.

Is nicotine free vape juice safe?

Is nicotine free e liquid safe? Well yes very! There are no harmful substances in nicotine free vape juice, food grade propylene glycol is absolutely harmless. (PG) is found in many food and cosmetic products. Vegetable glycerol is another safe product and the same as (PG) it is used in many food and cosmetic products.

In fact the only product that i toxic in vape juice is the nicotine, so if you are vaping nicotine free then there is nothing to worry about.

Nicotine free e liquid monthly quitting program

So the nicotine free monthly program works like this e.g. A heavy smoker that smokes 40 real cigarettes a day wants to quit for health reasons. They hear about this program and buy a vaping kit. (A refillable vaporizer is my recommendation as it is the cheapest and the batteries last longer).

  • A smoker who is used to smoking 40 cigarettes a day. Should start on a high strength e-liquid, 18 mg liquid would suffice. Month one they get used to vaping this strength liquid.
  • Month two the smoker moves to a lower strength liquid: 12 to 14 mg would be a good move. They should then continue smoking this liquid for two months or until they are satisfied by this strength.
  • After the smoker is happy smoking the 12-14 mg liquid. They should then move down to a low strength liquid like 6 mg. It is very simple to do and requires just a small amount of will power. By this time they will have already noticed health improvements.
  • For the last steps they should try and move down to nicotine free e-liquid. It will seem to them like they are still smoking as the device mimics smoking tobacco in many ways. If the nicotine free step is too much of an undertaking. You can always add some e-liquid that contains nicotine to the nicotine free liquid. If you half fill the vaporizer with nicotine free e-liquid. Then the other half fill it with 6mg e-liquid. You will be effectively smoking 3 mg e-liquid. You can use this technique to gradually cut nicotine out all together. All it will take is a little organization and will power.

What’s in nicotine free e liquid?

Nicotine free vape juice is easy to make and there are only two ingredients (if you subtract the flavoring). The two key ingredients in nicotine free e juice are propylene glycol  (PG) or vegetable glycerol (VG) a small amount of alcohol can be added to think the nicotine free liquid but is not always required.

E-liquid nicotine free

This is by far the most effective way of cutting down and quitting nicotine and tobacco I have ever tried. It still seems like you are smoking! If you gradually cut down on the amount of nicotine in the e-liquid. You stand a really good chance of quitting once and for all. Also if you make your own nicotine free e-liquid it is incredibly cheap. You can make 1 liter of nicotine free e-liquid for under $30! There is no need to pay extortionate prices from retailers when you can make your own. There is no need to worry as the two chemicals in nicotine free e-liquid are harmless. All you need is propylene glycol or vegetable glycol and glycerol. You can buy these ingredients online and make huge savings especially compared to spending $20 a day on traditional cigarettes!

V-med stimulants F.I.F.A concerns

v-med stimulants used to cheat at sports

V-med stimulants are causing F.I.F.A and other sports governing bodies major concern. Some players are gambling their careers to use banned substances that enhance a player’s game. These stimulants include Nandrolone and  Danazol. Drugs are generally injected or ingested but more recently they are being administered through vaporizers. In the form of v-med stimulants.

This new administration technique is concerning drugs testing officials as vaporized meds or v-meds are new and largely uncharted way of cheating in sporting events. The new way of administering drugs in a vaporized form is quick and discreet. Athletes are now able to vape a small, targeted dose of stimulant that improves performance and is almost impossible to detect.

A quote from a football player that wished to remain anonymous,

I have seen players using vaporizers in changing rooms before the match and at half time. I thought they were using it to quit smoking tobacco though. It’s shocking to think that they might be taking drugs to enhance their performance.

With improved nano mist and vaporizing technology, performance enhancing drugs are used by athletes to cheat by giving them more stamina and a general physical edge over their opponents. Nano mist can be taken after initial urine samples have been given and administered in less than 5 seconds. The inhaled stimulant is then sweated out before the end of the game, allowing the user to bypass current testing measures. Hence this new form of doping is almost undetectable.

Cheating using performance enhancing drugs has plagued sports governing bodies for decades, Lance Armstrong in cycling and Asafa Powell in athletics are two who have risked their careers by taking banned stimulants to improve their performance. Both of these men were caught and stripped of their respective titles after failing drug tests. Technology is evolving though and scientists are developing new drugs and administration techniques with the aim of making it harder to trace and detect drugs cheats. This is why F.I.F.A and other sports governing bodies are so concerned with v-med stimulants.

So what measures are we going to see to ensure there is no foul play, regarding cheating with v-med stimulants? At present there are no measures in place to deal with v-med stimulants cheating specifically. The testing needed is not currently able to detect vaped substances. Previous drug testing procedures were previously deemed satisfactory for detecting known substances.

How will the drug testers detect and eradicate v-med stimulants?

Well, to detect v-meds will be very hard as the time the stimulant stays in the body is very brief; the correct dose can last in an athletes body for a desired period. For example, a football player could vape a dose of v-meds that stays in the body for just 90 minutes. After the match has finished the drug will have been excreted through sweat glands and thus be untraceable. Therefore the player has a physical advantage that is undetectable by current testing means.

What drugs can be vaped to improve performance among sporting superstars? There is a wide range of performance enhancing substances. These have been banned by sports governing bodies, for a full list check here.

E-Cigarettes

E-cigarettes: a revolutionary evolution in nicotine delivery. E-cigs are used to vaporize e-nicotine which has far lower associated health risks than that of tobacco. The self-contained e-cig comprises of two parts: the battery and the atomizer. The atomizer contains the e-liquid which in turn contains the nicotine and is generally screwed onto the battery.

When the e-cigarette is puffed a censor activates the hot plate, heating a shot of liquid to vaporizing temperature. The exact temperature that e-liquid vaporizes at varies depending on the specific brand and recipe. Once the vaporized e-liquid is inhaled, the nicotine mostly enters the bloodstream via the cheeks and mouth and less through the lungs like the nicotine in tobacco smoke.

E-cigarettes are becoming more widely used and commonplace in society, particularly amongst younger generations. As the industry develops, so does the language coined to describe it. Cig-a-like or cigalike, e-cig, and e-cigarette are all terms used to describe an electronic cigarette.

Rechargeable E-cigarette

Most e-cigs are rechargeable, they have a limited battery life. The length of time that a battery will last depends on how much it is used as well as the make of e-cigarette components. Some e-cig batteries do not work well in cold temperatures, with a fully charged lithium battery only lasting a few minutes in freezing conditions. Rechargeable e-cigarettes have their advantages and disadvantages both of which need to be thought through.

Portable e-cigarette charger

Charge your e-cig on the go with portable cigarette charger and e-cig docking stations. These devices enable multiple battery charges away from mains electricity supply. Some portable chargers also double as a cigarette packet, giving it that authentic look and making it easy to switch away from tobacco.

Solar E-cigarette charger

Even if you are miles from any source of main grid electricity, solar e-cigarette chargers allow you to carry on vaping. With a small amount of solar energy you can charge e-cigs anywhere. All you need is a relatively sunny day to make the most of a solar charger, and depending on the brand of charger you have, you will be able to charge enough batteries to last you through the night.

Disposing of E-cigarette batteries

Used e-cigarette batteries are a danger and should be disposed of correctly. So when disposing of e-cigarette batteries always be careful not to put them where they can be crushed, if they are crushed they can leak and cause a fire.

Pay attention to the damage that batteries can have on our environment both to humans and wildlife, batteries are very toxic to our environment and lithium ion batteries are no exception. If too many of these chemicals get into the ground and water systems it will have a major effect on both our health and the environment.

Dispose of batteries properly by using battery recycling points or sending the used batteries back to the supplier for them to dispose of on your behalf.

E-cigarettes and Water

E-cigarettes and water do not go! They do not like each other and are best kept apart. If your e-cig becomes wet do not continue to use it. Disconnect the atomiser from the battery and dry them both out. If you continue to use the battery when wet then it is likely to short which would damage your e-cig and likely break the battery. Worst case scenario is that it could explode, potentially resulting in injury..

E-cigarettes and Heat

Like most things, lithium ion batteries have optimum working parameters; if the conditions are too extreme one way or the other then the battery could break, seize, explode or drastically decrease in performance.

When e-cigarette batteries get too cold the length of battery life decreases, the battery becomes less active and releases far less energy. On the other hand, if the battery gets too warm it becomes more volatile and likely to explode. Manufacture warning labels instruct to keep out of direct sunlight and to store below 40c.There have been cases of batteries exploding, causing fire and injuries where they have malfunctioned through overheating.

E-cigarettes world order

E-cigarettes are not freely available for everyone, some countries have completely banned e-cig sales and advertising. To give you an idea of the current e-cigarette world order, you would firstly have to understand who, and what is behind the tobacco industry and then look at their links with the regulatory bodies and pharmaceutical companies.

Undoubtedly the corporation that will emerge on top will be the one with the best connections and have the strongest ties within the industry. Combine this with the most valuable assets in all three fields: tobacco industry, pharmaceutical industry and the regulation industry, then that corporation will hold a vast amount of power and control.

D.I.Y Alcohol Vaporizer

Vaporizing alcohol is a fairly new form of alcohol administration; it involves heating the alcohol until it begins to evaporate at around 78 Celsius or 173 Fahrenheit. When the alcohol reaches this temperature, vaporization occurs. D.I.Y alcohol vaporizers do exactly this. Ethanol, which is the type alcohol contained in most alcoholic beverages, is released as a vapor. Ethanol is produced by the fermentation of sugars by yeast and is basically the stuff that gets you drunk.

Home-made Alcohol Vaporizers

There are products on the market already that are specifically designed to vaporize alcohol: the Vape shot and Vaportini to name a couple. These products are custom made to heat and release alcohol as a vapor ready for inhalation. They are pretty novel at parties and make for some great fun. The Vaportini is a very simple design. It consists of a pint glass, a glass condensing globe and a heat source (e.g. a tea light or candle). They are very reasonably priced and probably safer than making your own. They make pretty good gifts and can be lot’s of fun if used properly. You can replicate the Vaportini and its components in the method shown below.

However, you can quite easily make a D.I.Y alcohol vaporizer at home – all you need is: a glass(preferably a pint glass), a tea light candle, a knife or fork, a straw, a jam jar and something to make a hole in the top of the jam jar lid. Oh and alcohol of course! Something strong – I like to use vodka or a nice white rum personally. If this is to complicated see the beer can vaporizer its by far the quickest and easiest method.

Although making an alcohol vaporizer is cheap and pretty easy to do with things you have lying around the house, it really makes sense if you have a spare 50 bucks just to order direct from Vaportini. At least this way you know 100% you are gonna end up with a product that works and is designed to do the job. Please note I am not affiliated with Vaportini in any way, I do not work for them and I think if you have the practical skill you can easily improvise a device to vape alcohol. Vaporizing times is not currently monetized in anyway. If you want to buy a Vaportini click the pic below.

 

vaportini pieces

Vaportini components. What you need to make a Vaporitini.

6 Steps to make an alcohol vaporizer

Step 1: Make a hole in the jam jar lid, just big enough for the straw to fit through.
Step 2: Put a shot or two of alcohol in the jam jar.
Step 3: Put the jam jar lid back on the jam jar.
Step 4: Light the tea light and place at the bottom of the pint glass.
Step 5: Put the knife or fork inside the pint glass and insert the alcohol filled jam jar in to the pint glass. (The knife allows air to be pulled in to keep the candle burning).
Step 6: Heat to around 78c/173f or until you can see the vapor forming in the jar and inhale.

It is important that you make the hole in the jam jar lid before heating, otherwise it could explode! Remember alcohol is very flammable.

If you want an easier method just put some alcohol in an empty beer bottle or beer can. Heat the beer can or bottle until you see vapor, then stick a straw in and suck the vaporized alcohol up. Don’t drink too much as alcohol poisoning can be very serious!

How to inhale alcohol vapor

To inhale the alcohol vapor is very simple, you inhale the alcohol through a straw once the vapor has been formed. The Vaportini comes with a glass straw because if you use a cheap plastic straw it may melt. To inhale the alcohol vapor simply poke the straw into the alcohol vapors and draw in as much as you want. You can tell when the alcohol vapor is ready to inhale; as you will see it start to re-condense on the sides of the glass that the vapor is formed in. Take care though inhaling alcohol can be dangerous, the dangers of inhaling alcohol are outlined in the next paragraph.

Vaping alcohol hazards!

FIRE!!! If you have a bunch of drunk people inhaling alcohol vapor over a naked flame, you don’t have to be that smart to realize that it could be dangerous. A nudge from a friend or passing out during inhalation of the alcohol vapour could lead to serious burns. The danger is enhanced as ethanol’s flame is almost invisible in bright natural light but if its dark you will clearly see your friends face on fire!

If you are going to try and vape alcohol be careful! Even if you have spent money on buying an alcohol vape or made your own alcohol vaporizer. I guess though it is the risk you take if you wan’t to try and vape alcohol, you should realize that their are risks and not only from burns.

Alcohol vape poisoning

If you vape to much alcohol quite simply you will die. Alcohol poisoning occurs when you consume too much alcohol. If you drink too much alcohol your body has a way to cope with this and I am sure most of you are familiar with it, simply you throw up. However this is not fool proof and if you drink too much alcohol you can still die. There are also other ways you can die, choking on you own vomit or an accident related to being so out of control of your body are other ways.

The thing is, when you vape alcohol your body can not regurgitate the inhaled alcohol, as it by-passes your stomach. This can easily lead to some form of alcohol poisoning. Alcohol poisoning is not always deadly but it can damage your body in various ways. Alcohol poisoning has a detrimental affect on your liver, kidneys,stomach,brain and eyes to name a few and no long term research has been carried out to the affect it has on your lungs when inhaled. So basically alcohol poisoning is pretty bad for all of your vital organs and no one knows what will happen long term if you vape alcohol.

Please note this is just a guide on how to vape alcohol and what you should be aware of if you are going to try and make an alcohol vaporizer. Vaporizing times holds no responsibility for your actions and any advice or information acted upon in this article is at your own discretion.

Vaporizing terminology

Vape/Vaping

To vape, or vaping, refers to the action of inhaling vaporized substances from an electronic smoking device. Vaped substances include e-liquid,nicotine, alcohol,cannabis and medicines. Vaping is a relatively new term and has been short listed for word of the year 2014.

E-cig

E-cig is short for electronic cigarette, an electronic cigarette is a small battery powered vaping device.

Cig-a-Like/Cigalike

A term used to describe an electronic cigarette, ‘cigalike’ is an amalgamation of two words: cigarette and like. It has been coined due to an e-cig’s similar appearance to that of a traditional tobacco cigarette.

V-meds

V-meds is an abbreviation, V: vaporizing and meds: is short for medicine, v-medication is a treatment for medical conditions. It is a way to administer medicine to treat symptoms like flu and headaches.

E-meds

E-meds is an abbreviation, E: electronic and meds: is short for medicine.

Why is it called a ‘vape pen’?

The term ‘vape pen’ was coined due to a vaporizers similar appearance to a pen. Some vaporizers double up as a writing instrument and also have clips that you can attach to shirt pockets. The aesthetic similarity inspired the name.

What is a cartomizer/cartomiser?

A cartomizer (US) or cartomiser (UK) is a small detachable component of an electric cigarette. They are designed to look like a typical cigarette filter. The cartomizer/cartomiser is the piece that contains the e-liquid. It is the mouth part of the e-cig which you inhale the vapour through.

What is an atomizer/atomiser?

An atomizer/atomiser (US/UK) is a device that is used to emit the e-liquid as a fine spray or mist. The atomizer/atomiser is heated by the battery and on contact with e-liquid it almost instantly vaporizes the juice, producing a cloud of vapour that is inhaled into the lungs of the user.

What is a clearomizer/clearomiser?

A clearomizer (US) clearomiser (UK) is another term for the atomizer. It is the component that holds the e-liquid and is heated by the battery – this is the part that the vapour is inhaled through. It was given its name due to its transparency, this transparency allows the user to visualise the e-liquid and monitor the amount of liquid vaped or indicate when the device needs refilling.

What is an e-pipe?

E-pipes are just another form of vaporizer, they are styled to look like traditional tobacco pipes right down to the glowing tobacco heap. The e-pipe is a clear example of how e-smoking is looking to appeal to all forms of tobacco smokers.

What is a cannabis vaporiser?

A cannabis vaporizer is a device which allows the user to vape cannabis instead of smoking or burning it. Vaping cannabis is seen as a healthier option as not so many of the harmful by-products are inhaled. There is no need for tobacco when cannabis is vaporized.

Can you vaporize alcohol?

Yes you can vaporize alcohol and there are specific alcohol vaporizer out there to buy. The alcohol you vape has to be strong, you wont get a good hit off a Budweiser! The actual effect of vaping alcohol is under scrutiny, lots of users tried vaping alcohol but the general opinion was that they didn’t get as drunk compared to drinking. However, if you are concerned about the amount of calories in alcohol then vaporizing could be a good alternative as the process reduces the amount of calories absorbed by the body. You could say that vaping alcohol is better for your waistline.

 

Vaporizers: five reasons why they beat e-cigs

E-cigs better

Vaporizers are here and it looks like they are here to stay. We are entering a time that could see the old fashioned cigarette go extinct. Battery powered vaporizers in their place and less and less people are turning to tobacco. There are a lot of e-cig brands to choose from, Vype, V2, VIP and E-lites are all emerging e-cig brands. The new companies offer a lot of product choice. This gives you options of how you can vape. So what should you choose?

Here as a list of reasons why vaporizers are better than e-cigs. This should give some idea of what to chose when purchasing you first vaping device. It will give you an insight into vaping tools before you buy. You may like to not listen and find out on your own. But what ever.

5. Stealthy vaporizers

Vaporizers come in a range of forms, shaped to look like almost anything.

Vaporizers better

(stealthy vape)

This helps with discreet smoking. It means you sneak a quick vape in places you could not smoke tobacco. As long as there are no cameras to catch you! It will be fine and you won’t get caught. Well I hope you don’t get caught anyway.

 

4. Better and bigger batteries for vaporizers

Vaporizer batteries last a lot longer than standard e-cig batteries, in some cases up to 5x longer. Some of the bigger batteries can last for days. Bigger vaporizer batteries are not as discreet but they hold a lot of power.

vaporizers better

(Big vaping battery)

You also get a better hit from bigger vaporizer batteries. This gives you more nicotine per puff, so you wont have to smoke it constantly. Smoking an e-cig you have to puff all the time, then the battery over heats. So they are not as good. The batteries also have adjustable voltage, this allows you to play with the amount of smoke inhaled.

 

It Also means you burn more e-juice per puff but hey it is not expensive if you make your own e-liquid. With more smoke comes more nicotine, the strength of juice you smoke will also go down with a bigger more                                                                  powerful battery. If the juice is too strong you will cough                                                                                      your guts up! You have been warned.

3. More e-juice in vaporizer tanks

Vaporizers can hold much more e-juice than e-cigarettes, so less need to fill up or change the cartridge. Some vaping tanks hold loads of e-liquid up to 20 ml. This is enough to last you a good few days. Must standard vaping tanks hold around 2 ml.

vaporizers better

(Large vaping tank)

A big vaporizer battery can burn this amount in a few hours. The standard batteries make 2 ml last a good few hours and that is constantly puffing. E-cigarettes can last 300-400 puffs, depending on brand. They will only last an hour or to sometimes. This especially when you have just quit tobacco and can’t put your vape down.

2. L.E.D displays on vaping batteries

Some vaporizers come with a built in LED displays which analyses your puffing data and maximises your vaping experience. The tech going into vaporizers now is pretty cool. There are a lot of gadgets on batteries and tanks now that add to the vaping experience.

vaporizers better

(LED display for vaporizer)

Some batteries have temperature gauges and switches that allow you to adjust battery power. This can lengthen the battery life and regulate the amount of nicotine you vape.

1. £ Price £ of vaporizers

Vaporizing and refilling atomizers with e-liquid is cheaper than buying cartridges all the time. My monthly spend on e-juice is a third of what it was when smoking e-cigs. A bit of extra money in your pocket is always a bonus. People have saved up enough to buy a new car with the money thy have saved vaping.

Vaporizer compared to e-cigs are a lot cheaper. E-cigs have to buy expensive refill cartridges, these can cost up to 20.00 for a pack of 5. You can refill e-cig cartridges but that is not advised by the manufacturers, HA I wonder why.

 

E-cigs are better than vaporizers five reasons why

E-cigs better

E-cigs and vaporizer are becoming more and more common. Every street you walk down you see people vaping. Either puffing on an e-cig or chugging a vaporizer but which of these devices is this best? Which one suits you? Is it easier to quit smoking tobacco with a device that looks like a cigarette?                               Here are five pro reason why e-cigs are better than vaporizers, they should help you making your mind up when buying a vape. If they don’t what ever I prefer vaporizers anyway. Although I started with e-cigs I switched after a year or so to a vaporizer. The e-cigs helped me quit tobacco.

 

 

5. The size

E-cigs are small and light compared to some bulky vaporizers.

4. Discreet

You can cup an e-cig in your hand and puff discreetly, most vaporizers are too big to be covered by one hand.

3. Strength

E-cigs are generally more durable than larger vaporizers, e-cigs are more likely to survive when you sit on them!

2. Portable charging unit

Some e-cig brands have portable chargers shaped like a cigarette box, this allows you to charge e-cigs on the go; you can also store cartomizers and spare batteries in the charging box.

1. Quitting

E-cigarettes look like traditional tobacco cigarettes, most even have a glowing tip which lights when puffed. This similarity helped me to stop smoking tobacco by bridging the cap from tobacco cigarettes to a vaping pen.

5 Advantages e-liquid

advantages e-liquid

Here are 5 advantages e-liquid has over tobacco. I will outline the advantages e-liquid has compared to the dirty weed. Tobacco has been around for hundreds of years and has been linked to deaths of millions of people. So it about time a new healthier alternative other than quitting came along to improve the health of the people. Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco that people crave. It stimulates the brain receptors and releases endorphin’s, the brain gets used to the buzz and when you stop your brain goes crazy.

E-liquid gives your brain nicotine and it’ also a similar action to smoking. This makes it easier to quit smoking and nicotine free of e-liquid helps quit the nicotine addiction. Quit once and for all!

5. E-liquid flavors

E-liquid comes in a number of flavors, these flavors enhance the vaping experience and leave a pleasant taste in the mouth. There are so many flavors of e-liquid to choose from. Whether you like the taste of tobacco or want to mix things up with a fruity flavor. The choice is yours and there is plenty to choose from.

4. No yellow fingers with E-liquid

When e-juice is vaped fingers are left clean from yellowy brown nicotine stains associated with tobacco smoking advantages e-liquid. It was a disgusting by product of smoking tobacco, dirty yellow stained fingers. Especially if you were a heavy tobacco smoker. Tobacco would not just stain your fingers it would stain your teeth, mouth and nose. Disgusting!

3. The odor E-liquid

E-liquid produces little or no odor during vaporization, the only odor produced is generally pleasant and comes from the flavorings. It does not have the fowl stench of cigarette smoke, advantages e-liquid! You can get away vaping almost anywhere if you are discreet. If smoking tobacco you can smell it from 50 meters away. Smoking tobacco is smelly and hard to do discreetly.

2. Price advantages E-liquid

E-liquid is cheaper than tobacco: 20 Benson and Hedges are more than £9 a pack, around 45 p per cigarette. 30 ml of e-liquid is about the same price but can last 2-3 weeks advantage e-liquid. You can make your own e-liquid at a fraction of the price it is sold for in the shops as well. If you buy the raw ingredients you can make a 10 ml bottle of e-liquid very cheap. There are only 3 ingredients in E-liquid, minus the flavorings. The ingredients are propylene glycol, glycerin and nicotine.

1. No Nasty Toxins in E-liquid!

When e-liquid is vaped you don’t get any of the toxins associated with smoking cigarettes, that means no tar! No carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide! No lead and no arsenic! The latest expert advice on vaporizing is that they up to 95% safer than smoking tobacco. If you are a smoker you would be stupid not to switch to vaporizing. There are plenty of advantages e-liquid has compared to tobacco and probably more than I have outlined.

 

 

E-cig regulations and product changes

The predicted announcement of new regulations is likely to force electronic vaporizing brands like VIP, V2 and Blu to make product changes to almost all of their current paraphernalia . These changes could include ‘tamper proof’ cartomisers, cartridges, atomizers and clearomisers that can only be filled once. After the nicotine has been vaped they are then discarded, removing the refilling option and limiting nicotine consumption.

It could be that new vaporizing regulations see the ban of e-liquid sale! Leaving the only option to buy new cartomizers from licensed retailers, hence completely removing the option to refill the devices yourself. These new regulations would surely have a great impact on the cost of e-smoking and would certainly be met with hostility, from both users and manufacturers alike. Not to mention forced product changes rendering current devices obsolete.

If the sale of e-liquid is made illegal following forthcoming regulatory measures on vaping, this would not only have an impact on the price but potentially the environment as well. You only have to look at the number of strewn cigarette butts on the streets today, to realise that if those butts were made from metal and plastic they could pose a much larger problem.

Regulators may well have considered this already and have alternative product designs in the pipeline, geared up for product changes. Perhaps banning the sale of e-juice could lead to cartridges being recycled and refilled by licensed shops, instead of being thrown out in the trash. The result of this could reduce nicotine consumption, as well as limit the environmental impact and would at least half the projected billions of nicotine cartridges discarded by e-smokers.

One thing for sure that should happen but probably wont happen under the free market is tougher regulation. Protecting people health and well being, as well as protecting people pockets and the amount they pay for products. All electrical equipment should have a guarantee of at least a year so e-smoking should come into that umbrella. Well manufactured products that are designed to last to lesson the environmental impact of electronic smoking.

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
