Studies concerning vapour-based products are still relatively new in the healthcare industry. However, many of the social benefits of vaping outweigh other nicotine-based products such as cigarettes and tobacco. Consumers find they “feel better” once they make the switch from a typical tobacco-based product to vapourisers. They can be more discrete at social events as well as workplaces and find a wider variety of flavours as well as concentrations.
- No Tar or Carbon Monoxide
Unlike cigarettes, you do not need a lighter to vape. It does not burn tobacco and other toxins. There is no burning or lighting involved, so it does not produce carbon monoxide or tar. Tar and carbon monoxide are two of the most damaging factors in smoking tobacco. Carbon monoxide and tar will line and coat the lungs causing shortness of breath, coughing, and in some severe cases, cancer.
Whether users decide to use an e-cigarette, vapouriser, or other form of electronic device, the e-liquid typically contains propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine. It will also include various concentrations of nicotine or CBD as well as flavourings. The device heats the liquid electronically, creating a vapour that can be inhaled.
- Social Discretion
Have you ever smelled someone when they come into the house after smoking a cigarette? If you are a smoker, have you ever heard someone complain about how someone smells at work because they smoke cigarettes? Cigarettes, cigars, and cigarillos leave a distinct smell on a person’s clothes and hair. It also can cause one’s teeth to darken in colour and stain. You may notice the yellowing of your teeth and wonder how you can prevent it. Besides the mandatory oral hygiene tips such as brushing and rinsing with water after eating or drinking, you can switch to vaping. Vapourisers use heat to transform the liquid into gas. For example, you may notice that some vapes require heating coils while others are disposable and must be charged. The heating element replaces the need for a fire source. Your clothes and hair will not smell like cigarettes because the residue produced does not stick.
- A Wide Variety of Products
Cigarettes often come in two flavours: a typical tobacco flavour and menthol. The options are very limited. Vapour juice flavours are being created everyday. You can order strawberry-shortcake, banana, peach, pear, mango, grape, cotton candy, spearmint, or any other flavour you can imagine. You are not limited in options.
