How To Order E-Cigarettes With Nicotine E-Liquid In Australia

If you live in Australia, you may be wondering if it’s possible to buy e-cigarettes that contain nicotine. We have the answer that you’re searching for: yes, it is possible to buy nicotine vaping products in Oz, but there are some rules you need to follow in order to do so. Below you will find all of the information that you need to buy nicotine e-cigs and e-liquid down under.

 

How To Buy Nicotine E-Cigs In Australia

When buying nicotine vaping products down under, all you need to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Visit Vaper Empire’s online vape shop: www.vaperempire.com.au
  2. Choose a vape starter kit that fits your needs and preferences.
  3. Add up to a 3-month supply of nicotine e-liquid to your cart and place your order.

Once your order has been placed and processed, you’ll receive your nicotine vaping supplies within 3 to 5 days. That’s all there is to it.

 

Is It Really That Easy?

Yes, it is that easy to buy electronic cigarettes and nicotine e-juices if you live in Australia. The reason why it’s so easy is that Vaper Empire is technically based outside of AU, which allows customers in Australia to legally import nicotine vaping supplies from their store.

There is a catch though and that catch is this: you can’t order more than a 3-month supply of nicotine vape juice at one time and your order total can’t exceed $1,000 AUD.

As the Australian government has yet to clearly define what exactly constitutes a 3-month supply of e-liquid, our advice to you is to exercise some caution when ordering. Don’t go overboard and too much, just get what you need to get through the next 3-months and you should be all set.

Follow these rules and you’ll be vaping nicotine in just a matter of days.

Grenco Science G Pen Elite Dry Herb Vaporizer Review

The G Pen Elite vaporizer is a new portable dry-herb vape from Grenco Science. Smooth and sleek, this device is a portable conduction vaporizer powered by a lithium-ion battery with smart-chip technology that makes it perfect for vaping on the go.

Grenco Science G Pen Elite Testing and Performance

There have been a couple of versions of the G Pen. The G Pen Pro is the earlier version which had a smaller oven capacity and pre-set temperature settings. The G Pen Elite is the upgraded version with a larger oven capacity and the ability to customize your heat settings by pushing the buttons up or down.

Build Quality and Design

The quality of the device seems to be pretty solid. It has a bit of heaviness to it which suggests it is solid and sturdy. The design is different than most vaporizers of this size. It is about the same height as the Mighty. It is shaped more like a bullet with smooth cut out sides which make it very easy to hold and grip. The texture on the outside is smooth with rubberized grips on the sides.  It feels very smooth and fits nicely in your hand.

Discreetness

In all honesty, it really does not look like a standard vaporizer. To me, it resembles a beard trimmer or a shaver of some kind. That is just what I think of when I look at the device. I don’t think anyone would know it’s a vaporizer unless you told them. It is small enough to slip in your pocket or purse and you can vape it in stealth mode.

Durability

The G Pen Elite is well-made and sturdy. It isn’t top-heavy so there is no worry of it tipping over or rolling off of smooth surfaces. There are no breakable parts to this device. Nothing to crack or chip if accidentally dropped.

Power

The battery life for the GPen is about 90 minutes to an hour of continuous vaping. Once the battery is completely drained it takes about 2 hours to be fully charged. It charges via USB cable and can be plugged into a laptop or wall charger. You will need to let it charge for about 3 hours when you first get it because it does not come pre-charged.

Vaping Experience

I was actually surprised at how to use this device is. It has a very simple one-button operation and the ceramic oven is one of the largest I have seen yet. It is very deep but you don’t have to pack it very tightly so it doesn’t have to be full to use by yourself.

To fill the chamber you first need to remove the mouthpiece as the oven sits underneath it. To remove it grip the mouthpiece and gently move it back and forth in a rocking motion until it is loose enough to pull it off. Place your ground herbs inside the chamber and lightly pack it with your finger or the included packing tool. It doesn’t have to be packed tight in there just press it down and it’s good.

It also uses the standard 5 clicks to turn it on and off like similar vaporizers. To start the heating process, you press and hold the power button for a minute and you’ll see the temperature changing in the LED lights on the side of the device. It takes about 30 seconds to reach the desired temperature and you can adjust the temperature up or down using the buttons located on the side of the device.

Cleaning the G Pen is also pretty easy. You just remove the mouthpiece again and dump out the contents of the oven. Using the included brush, sweep the inside and the outer edge of the oven chamber. You can wipe out the inside with a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol. Clean the mouthpiece with a cotton swab to remove any ground material from the screens.

It is one of the easiest devices I have ever used. There is literally nothing to it. Even a beginner can get great results the first time around. It produces a surprising amount of vapor in the higher temperature ranges. It has just the right amount of resistance in the draw. The first couple of draws you won’t see much vapor but it increases as it warms up. About the third or fourth draw, you should get a pretty decent cloud. I like to spend most of my session with low heat (375 to 380) but more flavor and then bum it up (400) at the end to finish it off with more vapor production and to ensure even vaporization of ground material.

I also like the fact that the mouthpiece does not get hot as you vape, despite the oven chamber being directly below your mouth. It stays cool and burning lips. The device itself doesn’t even get that hot. It feels warm to the touch but that’s as hot as it gets.

Always remember to carry your devices safely. Let the device cool down before putting in your pocket or purse. Click the button 5 times to turn it off before putting it away. A device that is turned off poses no danger because the battery cannot engage without the device being on.

What We Liked

+ Simple and easy to use
+ Decent battery life
+ Good vapor production
+ LED display
+ Pass-through charging

What We Didn’t

Not much battery life
Does take a little longer to charge than others

Value

The G Pen Elite is priced at $149.95 and is worth every penny. It performs very well for a small device and puts out just as much vapor as the bigger units. The fact that it is so easy to use is another big plus. There are no complicated menus, no smartphone apps, just up/down buttons and a power button. Even beginners will be able to use this because there is no way to get it wrong.

Final Verdict

I recommend this vaporizer to anyone who prefers simple devices with very low maintenance requirements. Easy to use, easy to clean, and no fiddling with buttons. Just turn it on, heat it up and vape it. It is a good value for the money because it works so well and it’s portable so you can take it anywhere.

Pax 3 Portable Vaporizer Review

If you’re looking for a vaporizer that is small and fits right in the palm of your hand, then the Pax 3 might be just what you need. Small and discrete, the Pax 3 from Pax Labs is a 2 in 1 vaporizer that heats up fast and works like a dream.

Pax 3 Vaporizer Testing and Performance

The Pax 3 portable vaporizer from Pax Labs is the latest technology in small, lightweight portable vaporizers. It is a 2 in 1 vaporizer that works with dry herb and concentrates. It uses conduction heating to deliver a smooth and tasty vape.

In terms of size, the Pax 3 is small enough to be completely concealed in the hand. It doesn’t look like other vaporizers either. You cannot tell what it is so you could leave it sitting on your nightstand or dresser and no one would guess what it is. It’s perfect for stealth vaping on the sly.

The Pax 3 come out in 2016 and was rated one of the best vaporizers on the market. Its predecessor, the Pax 2, was the original dry herb vaporizer but did not have the ability to use concentrates as the upgraded version does.

The device comes in two options. One is the device only for $199 or the full kit for $249. I suggest going for the full kit because you get so many extras with it as well as the ½ pack oven and concentrates lid that does not come with the device by itself.

It is also designed to be compatible with Bluetooth technology and has an app to let you customize your settings for better vaping enjoyment. Pairing the device with your smartphone is easy, just press the button at the top and shake the device until the petals light up blue letting you know it’s connected.

Some Similarities and Differences

How is it different from the from the Pax 2? It has upgraded technology, longer battery life, and new accessories – including the option for concentrates. You get about 8 – 10 sessions from the Pax 3 instead of 6 – 8 with the previous version. It also charges in 90 minutes compared to 120 minutes.

In every other way, they are exactly the same. They are exactly the same size and dimensions the difference is in the upgrades and customization options.

Build Quality and Design

The build quality of the Pax 3 is very good. It feels good in the hand and quite durable. Although it is lightweight, there’s a slight heaviness that tells you it is not made from cheap metal. The LED petals on the front indicate battery status and heat settings. With the device – only option, you have the choice of four basic colors. In the full kit version, you have eight available colors to choose from.

Companion App

The downloadable app lets you adjust the heat settings, change display colors, and even has a game you can play with it. On the Pax website, it says you get 60 customizable heat settings with the app but I didn’t go through all of them. I’m not really a gadget-type of girl, so this isn’t something I would use myself but others may find it quite useful. If you like gadgets you would probably love this feature. For me personally, I don’t need that many options.

Discreetness

As mentioned previously, this device is small and fits entirely in your hand. There is nothing to give it away as a vaporizer. If you had this sitting on your dresser it might appear to be some kind of beauty product or fragrance tube. It is totally discrete in appearance. It is very easy to stealth vape with this device by concealing most of it in your hand and using it with the flat mouthpiece.

Durability

The quality of the device makes it a durable piece of technology. I don’t see where it would have any breakable parts. The finish on it is smooth and I think, if dropped, it really wouldn’t show any damage at all. Even a scuff or two wouldn’t even be noticeable. I wouldn’t say that it is unbreakable but if it fell out of your pocket it wouldn’t be unusable.

Power

The battery life of the Pax 3 is an improvement over the earlier version. You get about 90 minutes on a full charge and it takes about the same length of time to charge the unit. You can set it down between draws and it goes into a hibernation mode to conserve battery power. You only need to pick it up and draw on it to restore it to the heat setting it was at and resume vaping. If you wait longer than two minutes between draws it may time out and you’ll need to restart it. Again, this is to save battery life.

Vaping Experience

I spent the past 10 days testing this device and have come to really enjoy it. I haven’t bought many of these vaporizers so I’m never sure what to expect from them. I did find this particular device to be pretty easy to use, even the first time.

In size comparison, it is slightly taller than my Davinci IQ. But it is not as wide and is easier to hold due to its rectangular shape. It feels very natural in your hand when you hold it.

I like the haptic feedback feature and the addition of the smaller oven. If you’re using this by yourself you may not want a full oven lid. That’s where the ½ pack comes in handy. It is also easy to switch between dry herb and concentrates simply by swapping out the inserts.

Because it uses conduction heating you do have to grind your herbs up pretty fine and pack the oven tightly to ensure even vaporization. When you empty the oven, all you should see is dry brown material. It should be completely vaporized. To keep down on smell be sure to clean it after each use using the included pipe cleaners and brush.

I played around with the companion app for a little while but I’m not really a gadget person so I didn’t really end up using it. I mainly started it out at a lower setting for flavor and increased it towards the end of a session for more vapor. You can manually switch the heat settings by pressing and holding the top button and watching the petals light up. One light is the lowest setting and all four is the highest.

What We Liked

+ Haptic feedback sensor
+ Works with Pax 2 accessories
+ Customizable Bluetooth App

What We Didn’t

Cannot use while charging (no pass-through)

Value

The Pax 3 vaporizer comes in two options; $199 for device only – $249 full kit. I do suggest spending a few extra dollars to get the full kit because if you purchase just the device you will be missing out on some of the accessories as well as the concentrates lid. It is only included in the full kit along with the herb grinder, filling aid, and extra screens.

Final Verdict

I really enjoy using the Pax 3 portable vaporizer and I would recommend it to any vapers looking for a non-combustible method of vaporizing herbs. As a vaporizer, it works really well and lives up to its reputation. It is a good value for the money and something you can use for years without needing to buy anything else.

Eleaf iStick 30W Box Mod Review

Eleaf vapor products are some of the best in the world. When it comes to small box mods for beginning vapers, the Eleaf iStick 30W is a perfect fit. It has all the features you could want in a compact vape device. Read on to find out more about it and if it might be right for you.

Eleaf iStick 30W Testing and Performance

The Eleaf line of vapor products includes the iStick mini, iStick 20W, iStick 30W, iStick 50, and 100W. They consistently produce high-quality tanks and mods and I have purchased several products from them in the past.

I bought the previous 20W version of the iStick and while I loved it, it had a few problems. I used it until it died and then I bought the 30W and thankfully those issues were fixed in this version.

It has a maximum output of 30W and is capable of using sub ohm atomizer coils to .04 ohms. You can use a number of tanks with this mod such as the Aspire Atlantis, Kanger Subtank, and Eleaf tanks like the GS Air, Lemo, and Melo.

Build Quality and Design

If you are familiar with the iStick 20W then you’ll see that the 30W is almost identical to it except for a few things. It is the same size and width but it has a slight lip on the front to accommodate larger tanks without overhang. When using a 22mm tank it sticks out on the 20W so they added a bit of an edge for it to sit on.

The buttons are exactly the same and it works very much the same way except that this one goes to 30W and is capable of using sub ohm tanks. You couldn’t use them on the 20W version.

Durability

The iStick 30W is durable and made of stainless steel. It has a little bit of weight to it but doesn’t feel heavy, just solid. There are no loose buttons or parts that rattle and all the threads are very smooth.

Ease of Use

This device is also very easy to use. The OLED screen display shows your battery status, your atomizer and how many volts or watts you’re using. It is really nice as a beginning mod and you can use above-ohm or sub ohm coils. I consider it to be a very safe device because you cannot use super low resistance coils so there is no danger of stressing the battery.

Ergonomics

Due to its small size and slim design, it fits perfectly in the hand and feels comfortable. This is ideal for those times when you want to stealth vape without drawing attention by blowing big clouds. It’s also the perfect size to fit right in your shirt pocket or purse for easy carrying.

Features and Functions

Some of the best features of this device are the ability to use sub ohm coils, use tanks up to 22mm, a long-lasting 2200mah battery, it has a 10-second auto-shut off, will not fire at below .04 ohms, and built-in user protections.

Another feature that I like is the ability to lock in your wattage settings. Sometimes when you grab your mod several times per day the wattage can go up or down without you realizing it and with this locking feature, it stays set until you unlock it to change it. This saves your atomizer coils from getting burned from the wattage being set to high.

Wattage and Power

This device has a set wattage of 30W and 2200 mah battery capacity. Depending on how you vape, the battery can last all day or more. If you use sub ohm coils though you will need to charge more often.

Battery Life

The integrated 2200mah battery lasts between 5 – 6 hours if you use it at or close to 30W. If you use a higher resistance coil and lower wattage it will last even longer.

I like to use 1.5 ohm coils at 12 – 15W and the battery lasts me all day. It takes about 2 ½ to 3 hours to charge completely.

You also have the ability to vape while charging (pass-through) so you never have to worry about having to wait on a battery to charge.

What We Liked

+ 4 color choices
+ Pass-through charging
+ Can lock your wattage settings
+ Included 510 to eGo adaptor

What We Didn’t

Charging port is on the bottom of the device

Value

I have seen this device advertised from $29.99 to $34.99 through various online retailers. This is an extremely affordable device for someone who is on a budget but needs something dependable. The Eleaf series is great for that because if you start out at 30W you can always upgrade later to the 50 or 100W as you get more vaping experience.

Final Verdict

If you want a small sized mod capable of 30W and able to use sub ohm coils then the iStick 30W is is an excellent choice. It is great for new vapers wanting to move up to a mod or even advanced vapers who just want a backup device to carry with them that is simple to use.

It is extremely affordable and the flexibility to use almost any tank you have on it is an added bonus. It works fantastic with above ohm coils in the 1.2 – 1.5 ohm range as well as sub ohm coils in the 05. – .07 range. I definitely recommend this device to vapers of any experience level who want an affordable device that performs as well as some of the bigger mods.

Innokin EZ Watt Beginner Box Mod Review

As new vapers start gaining more experience, they soon find that the vape pen or cig-a-like device they started with no longer satisfies like it did when they first bought it. It’s time to look at maybe getting a beginning vape mod like this one from vaping industry giant, Innokin. The Innokin EZ Watt is their latest box mod designed for new vapers ready to take that next step.

Innokin EZ Watt Testing and Performance

As the name implies the EZ Watt is designed to be easy for any vaper to use. And it is. It is easy to fill, change the coil, and set your wattage. This device is a step up from the vape pen for new vapers who want a little more power but don’t feel ready for “a mod” yet.

Many new vapers actually stick with vape pens because it is easier than trying to buy a new device which may or may not work for them. Using low resistance coils for direct lung hits takes some getting used to when you have been using mouth to lung draws for so long.

 

Build quality and Design

The build quality of the device itself is very good. The design is stylish and modern with a matching tank and colored o-rings. The tank is the Prism T20S tank and is protected by metal bands that go around it.

Two big windows let you monitor your juice levels and if it needs refilling just unscrew the top cap and drip into the large juice holes underneath.

It has a stylish look in matching colors and the colored LED lights on the power button tell you when your battery is getting low.

Durability

The device is constructed of stainless steel and glass and is very sturdy. The metal bands protect the tank from cracks and breaking, which is a good thing because if it breaks you have to buy a new tank. The metal covering and glass are all one piece and there is no spare included.

Ease of Use

The top-fill design makes filling the tank easy and changing out the coil is just as easy when the tank is empty. The coil heads sit in the base so all you do is unscrew the tank, turn it upside down, and pull it out. Replace the coil and screw the tank back down. That’s it and your ready to vape again.

The buttons on the front of the battery are the power button and the wattage settings. The settings are outlined on the bottom of the device in case you forget which ones are which. You click the bottom button through each setting indicated by “green” which is the lowest (13-14), medium which is “blue” (16 – 18), and the highest is “white” (30 – 35).

Ergonomics

The rounded corners and slim body make this feel very comfortable in the hand. It is fairly lightweight and is mostly concealed in the hand. I have small to medium-sized hands and it almost disappears in my hand, except for the tank sticking up.

It works for stealth vaping when you want to take a couple of quick draws without anyone knowing.  Meaning when you’re with friends and family who haven’t quite accepted your new vaping lifestyle.

Features and functions

There are some pretty nice features for this device. It uses a similar style tank like some other Innokin products so it is familiar.

It has built-in user protections, comes with a spare .08 ohm coil, and is compatible with the Innokin Slipstream tank (purchased separately).

The mod itself can also be used with other tanks but will not fire below .02 ohms. The included 1.5-ohm coil head is perfect for a mouth to lung draw, while the .08 ohm coil is good for more airflow and slightly restricted direct lung draw.

Wattage and Power

The wattage is restricted to 35W no matter what tank you use. The integrated battery is 1500mah so depending on which coil you use, you may have to charge more or less often. The higher ohm coil will use less because it has more resistance and the same for the lower resistance coil, it will use more battery because it has less resistance. It also depends on your vaping frequency. It has a good power output for the device and 35W will power similar atomizers of the same ratings.

Battery Life

Since the battery is only 1500 mah, it will not last a long time if you vape a lot. If you vape frequently this might not be the mod for you, you might be better off getting something with larger battery capacity. But if you like how it vapes, it satisfies your need for nicotine, and you don’t mind having to charge more often then go for it. Whatever keeps you off cigarettes is the “right one”. It is all subjective to what works for you. Not all mods work for everybody.

What We Liked

+ Matching rubberized finish
+ It’s small and easy to carry
+ The maximum output is 35W
+ It is designed for new vapers

What We Didn’t

Airflow is not adjustable
Can’t skip through settings
Not compatible with T18 coils
Can’t change coils while the tank is full

Value

– $29.95 to $31

I think Innokin has made a great product and I recommend it to new vapers and even old vapers who just want an easy to use device with a MTL draw. It’s easy to use and priced to fit any budget. It’s definitely a good value in my opinion. A complete setup for thirty dollars or less is a steal.

Final Verdict

The EZ Watt is the perfect vape mod for beginning vapers who want to take the next step up from a vape pen. The mod and tank look great together and it is a high-quality, well-made product. It vapes great as a Mouth-to-lung tank, which is something new vapers need, and it comes at an affordable price.

Innokin Endura T22 Beginner Box Mod Review

Innokin has cornered the market on beginning vaper devices. Their Innokin T18 vape pen was a huge success and they followed up with a beginning box mod version in the T22. It is designed for beginners who have been vaping a while and want to move up to something in a mod style with a longer lasting battery.

Innokin Endura T22 Testing and Performance

The Innokin Endura T22 is a beginner box mod made with the same quality and design of the previous T18 vape pen. It uses the same Prism Tank and coils (larger tank capacity in this one) and a bigger battery (2000mah) that has twice the output of the older version. It is still a maximum of 14W with a 1.5 ohm coil Prism coil for flavor and clouds for those who want to upgrade. Here are a few specs on the device and some information about how it works.

[/su_accordion

[/su_accordion

Build quality and Design

The design is simple and basic. The set comes in 3 colors: silver, blue, and black. The mod and tank system look very stylish and sleek and feel very comfortable in the hand. The power button is smooth with no rattling. It is a very attractive-looking vape mod for beginners and those who like simple mods.

Durability

This mod is made of stainless and glass and is very durable. If it falls or gets knocked over, which happens in day to day life, it should survive without any damage. The battery feels very lightweight but strong and the tank is protected by a metal encasement that keeps it from getting cracked or broken.

Ease of Use

The top-fill design on the tank makes it super easy to use. The cap twists off to reveal juice ports underneath with openings large enough to fit most bottle tips. The device charges by USB cable and has 1-button functionality. It is the simplest of devices that you can just vape and go.

For coil changes, remove the tank and turn it upside down. Grab the coil and pull straight up and out. Put the new coil in the slot and line it up with the edges and push in. It is the same coil and same method of use as with the Apex tank.

Ergonomics

The form factor for this device is small. It fits in your hand and is so small you can close your hand around it and it completely disappears except for the tank sticking up. This is perfect for new vapers who want to upgrade but are too intimidated by some of the bigger mods. This is smaller and more accommodating to those who are new to vaping in general.

Features and functions

The T22 Prism tank has a larger capacity (4.5 mils) and is great for filling up for a long day. You don’t have to bring a juice bottle for the work commute because this tank can hold a lot of juice. The previous version was a 2 mil tank so you are getting twice the capacity of the old tank in the new one. The battery is also twice the output as the T18. Innokin has doubled everything in this little vape mod and it works like a dream.

Wattage and Power

The battery for this mod is pre-set to 14W and will not go higher. Also, you cannot use other tanks with it, it is designed for use with the Prism tank only. The combination of the 1.5-ohm coil and the power output of the battery make this a well-performing vape mod. You don’t get huge clouds from it but what you do get is pretty darn good for a device that practically disappears in your hand.

Since it only puts out 14W of power it would probably not appeal to more advanced vapers. There are no menu settings, no screens, no adjustments to make and no other coil options.

Battery Life

Innokin has definitely improved on the battery life in this one. The 2000mah battery lasts twice as long as the T18 version. While it does take a couple hours to charge, this battery will last a new vaper all day and all night. If you vape more frequently you may need to charge in between.

2000mah lasts me most of the day since I am a heavy vaper. I would charge it at night before going to bed. It charges within 2 hours and is ready to go for the morning.

What We Liked

+ Easy top-fill design
+ Micro USB charging
+ Easy to change coils
+ Compatible with T18 coils

What We Didn’t

Not a single thing

Value

I have seen this kit advertised for $32.95 and that is a good value for what you get with this mod. Everything is set up to vape right out of the box. All you have to do is charge and fill with your favorite juice. Simple and easy to use and priced affordably.

Final Verdict

Innokin has come out with some really great devices and this one is right on point. It is a great device for beginners who want to try a box mod that is small and feels like it was made just for them. The price point is good and you couldn’t ask for a better device from a company that makes such high-quality products. I recommend these to any vapers who want to try out a box mod without worrying that it is too big or has too much power. This one is just right.

Vaping vs. Smoking – Is it Better to Vape Than Smoke?

vaping vs smoking

Since the emergence of e-cigarettes in 2003, many people have taken up vaping to stop smoking cigarettes. And for good reason, cigarette-smoking is responsible for nearly 480,000 deaths per year in the US alone. While the benefits of quitting cigarettes are monumental, finding alternatives to smoking that will help people get off cigarettes for good is not so easy. Here are a few reasons why vaping is the best alternative to smoking.

Vaping as an Alternative to Smoking

The immediate benefits of vaping vs. smoking are clear to anyone who has made the switch to e-cigarettes. Cigarette revenue increases every year and costs continue to go up. Cost is a very big factor and it is included in 3 of the benefits listed below.

  1. The cost to vape on a monthly basis is considerably less than buying cigarettes, at least 50% less. It is a lot more in states where tobacco costs are higher. Typically, cigarette sales are between $5 and $8 (Los Angeles, CA) dollars per pack all the way up to $13 (NYC).
  2. The cost for a bottle of e-liquid and a basic vape pen is under $50 to get started, and the monthly cost from there is only for the e-liquid at $30 per month for a 60 ml bottle. Discount websites and online coupons can lower these costs even more for greater savings.
    Vaping does not produce any odor that sticks to your hair, clothes, and on your breath because it contains no tar. No one will accuse you of smelling like an ashtray. Vaping produces only a mildly-scented vapor which dissipates within minutes so there is no odor to follow you around like smoking cigarettes.
  3. Vapers are less dependent on their devices than smokers are with cigarettes. The body processes the nicotine in vapor differently. Without the other chemicals in cigarette smoke, the urge to vape is less intense so if you are at a sporting event there is no need to rush outside for a “smoke” and miss the highlights of the game.

A Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) study published in Preventative Medicine in 2017, concludes that electronic cigarettes are less addictive than tobacco cigarettes. The group studied was comprised of 3,500 participants, 5% of whom were vapers and 95% were cigarette users (no dual use). The study showed that the participants who vaped tend to start vaping later in the day and can go longer periods between vapes when compared to the habits of the participants that smoked.

What is Vaping?

If you have never heard the term before or maybe don’t quite understand what all “vaping” entails, here is a short description. Vaping is the act of inhaling vapor through an electronic device and exhaling in a similar fashion to smoking a traditional cigarette.

The vaping device used may or may not look like a cigarette, but the effects are similar. Vaping is designed to satisfy a smoker’s craving for nicotine, blowing out smoke, and the familiar hand-to-mouth habit associated with smoking. Believe it or not, these are three things make it hard for people to stay away from cigarettes once they quit.

Vaping exactly mimics these three things so many smokers-turned-vapers stay off cigarettes and are successful at quitting. Not all do, but a large portion of those who switch to vaping never go back to cigarettes.

Ingredients in Vape Juice

The ingredients in e-liquid that combine to produce vapor have been compared to the smoke produced by cigarettes. The chemical composition of the two is completely different. Cigarette smoke contains nicotine from tobacco leaves as well as tar, cyanide, ammonia, benzene and more. It is estimated that 4,000 or more harmful chemicals are in cigarette smoke.

Vaping liquid, on the other hand, includes only 4 ingredients: nicotine, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and flavoring.  Diacetyl was once used to simulate a buttery flavor in e-liquid recipes but was discontinued by some manufacturers after reports of a group of eight factory workers developed respiratory infections after being exposed to a large amount of the flavoring powder used to make the butter-flavoring for the popcorn made by the factory.

The amount used in e-liquid manufacturing is very small (drops) compared to the amount the factory workers were exposed to, but regardless, many companies have decided to make their e-liquids without flavoring chemicals like diacetyl.

Nicotine Free E-liquid

Many vapers choose vaping without nicotine after successfully quitting cigarettes. Since many online retailers allow consumers to customize the nicotine content in the vape juice purchased, it is possible to slowly reduce the amount of nicotine until it is no longer needed. Nicotine free vaping is popular with long-term vapers and all vape shops carry zero nicotine e-liquids.

Lowered Health Risks

While nobody can make the claim that electronic cigarettes are 100% harmless, it has been agreed that they are at least 95% less harmful than cigarettes. The CDC, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, and the Royal College of Physicians (UK) do not endorse vaping per se, but they all do agree it is less harmful due to fewer carcinogens being inhaled into the body through vaping vs.smoking cigarettes.

February UK Study Shows Vaping Less Harmful

In February of 2018, Public Health England published a report that concluded that vaping is less harmful than smoking.

Professor John Newton, Director for Health Improvement at Public Health England, said: Our new review reinforces the finding that vaping is a fraction of the risk of smoking, at least 95% less harmful, and of negligible risk to bystanders. Yet over half of smokers either falsely believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking or just don’t know.”

Smoking causes an increase in blood pressure, increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. A new study published in the British Medical Journal found that even light smokers who smoked less than a pack per day were at risk for cancer and heart disease.

Unfortunately, there have been no studies done yet to show the long-term effects of vaping 10 or 20 years from now. More long term studies are needed to provide data to the medical community and government agencies that vaping is a safe and an effective way to get smokers off cigarettes. It is nice to think that someday soon doctors may be writing prescriptions for e-liquid and vape pens as smoking cessation products.

Health Effects from Vaping vs. Smoking

We are all aware of the health issues related to smoking regular cigarettes. Cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, and lung disease are just a few smoking-related conditions that cost thousands of dollars per year in doctor bills and hospital stays. Studies show that smoking causes cancer and the above-mentioned associated conditions, we know that for a fact, but there is no evidence of vaping causing any of the same conditions. Media headlines mention studies linking cancer and vaping as clickbait to get their content read, but in reality, there is no evidence to prove that vaping causes cancer or any respiratory problems.

One study that said that vaping produces formaldehyde as a by-product of e-liquid being vaporized. But what they did not explain was that the researchers tested the liquid and vaping equipment at much higher levels of heat than any normal person would vape at.

Metal components and liquids can combine to produce noxious fumes when heated to abnormally high temperatures. This is a normal occurrence in the everyday world, but vapers do not routinely vape at high temperatures so there is no possibility of that happening with normal use. Anything taken to the extreme can have unpredictable consequences. Too much chocolate causes diarrhea but it’s not bad for you.

Side Effects of Vaping

Some people report side effects associated with vaping, but these are small and inconsequential. These are normal occurrences that would fit under numerous conditions.

Dry Mouth

One thing to understand is that vaping can cause you to become dehydrated so increasing your fluid intake is recommended. This is not only related to vaping because any number of things can cause dehydration.

Coughing

When you first begin vaping you may find yourself coughing for the first few days to a week. The body is attempting to adjust to inhaling vapor instead of smoke. The coughing is the lungs way of cleaning themselves of built-up tar and residue from smoking. Some people will quit vaping after a day or two because they developed a cough as a result and relate it to vaping.

Vaper’s Tongue

This one is a little tricky because it does not refer to the physical condition of the tongue itself. It refers to the loss of the ability to differentiate between flavors. If you vape the same flavor day-in /day-out for months on end sometime your taste buds will take a hiatus. This is a temporary condition and resolves itself with time. The issue is actually with the taste buds and not with vaping.

The main reasons why vaping is a better alternative to smoking is that it costs much less than smoking cigarettes. It doesn’t put off an odor to offend other people, including family members with sensitive noses. And lastly, you’re reducing the number of chemicals going into your body daily.

Regulation to Keep Teens Off Tobacco

There are regulations in place to keep tobacco products and vapor products out of the hands of teens and youth in the US. It was revealed that a number of High school students vape sparking the FDA to consider banning flavored e-liquids. The figures are exaggerated of course and most teens admit to trying vaping after or instead of conventional cigarettes. Regulations include no sales to minors under 18, vape shops must check the ID of anyone under 27 years old, and online retailers need to age-verify all purchases.

The FDA worries that vaping will be a gateway to smoking but it seems more likely the other way around. Cigarettes taste nasty and more teens say they do it for the flavors and not for the nicotine as most are vaping “0” nicotine e-liquid. While banning flavors might discourage teens from vaping, it would also deter all the young adults of legal vaping age from being able to access flavored e-liquids either.

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says that their goal is to make sure that kids can’t access any of the fruity-flavored products in convenience stores. Adult vapers agree with age-restricting products and support keeping these products away from young people. Hopefully, the FDA and the vaping community can reach a compromise that would keep flavors available for adult consumers but in a way that does not appear to target kids with advertising, packaging, or by any other means.

Flavors was a big debate, but it is a valid point. Kids are not the only ones attracted to sweet flavors. Adults like cereal flavors, sweets, fruits, and dessert flavors. Flavors are one of the things that set vaping apart from traditional cigarettes. The ability to choose your own flavors, nicotine strength and delivery system is a big plus.

Many new vapers have said that after switching to vaping they were looking better, feeling better, and even breathing better after quitting cigarettes tobacco. While that is not clinical evidence of vaping being healthier, it is worth mentioning.
