This article will cover the different vape products available to consumers. We’ll discuss the types of nicotine, flavors, and vaporizers available for every kind of vaper. We’ll also touch on how e-cigarette companies are making their products more appealing to smokers. Finally, we’ll talk about how vaping can be a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes.
Brief History of E-Cigarettes
The history of vaping started in the 1960s with Herbert A. Gilbert, who patented a device known as “a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette.” This device produced flavored steam without any nicotine or tobacco products. Despite this early invention, it wasn’t until 2003 that the e-cigarette we know today was invented. In 2003, a Chinese pharmacist named Hon Lik created the first modern e-cigarette. This new device used replaceable cartridges filled with liquid nicotine and propylene glycol (PG). Eventually, Hon Lik’s invention would be manufactured by the company known as Ruyan, which means “like smoke.” At first, this new device was marketed as a safer alternative to smoking. Still, it didn’t take long for people to realize that inhaling nicotine fluid also produced an “e-liquid” vapor that has become synonymous with vaping.
The Basic Types of Vape Juice
There are three basic types of vape juice: flavored nicotine liquid, unflavored nicotine liquid, and e-liquid.
Flavored Nicotine Liquids
These types of vape juice are flavored for people who want to enjoy the taste of their vapor while vaping. The most popular flavors include strawberry, vanilla, apple, peach, coffee, tobacco flavors, menthols, mints, cream flavors, fruit flavors, candy flavors, and many more. Depending on the manufacturer, some flavors are sold with added PG or VG, which produce vape clouds. Unflavored Nicotine Liquids
These types of vape fluids are for vapers who want nicotine without the taste of an e-liquid flavor additive. Nicotine liquid is added in various concentrations that range from 6mg/ml to 36mg/ml. The number usually indicates the concentration of nicotine before mg/ml. For example, 1mg/ml would be equal to 1% concentration, 2mg/ml would be equivalent to 2% concentration, and 3mg/ml would be equal to 3% concentrations. Some people use unflavored vape fluid in combination with e-liquid flavors to slowly decrease the nicotine concentration they are inhaling. Since vape juice can be produced with different ratios of PG and VG, the viscosity of vape juice may vary depending on what ingredients are used in its production. You can use this information to help you decide whether or not your current device produces sufficient e-liquid vapor for your needs. E-Liquid
E-liquids are for vapers who want the flavor of their vape juice in addition to nicotine. Some e-liquid flavors come pre-mixed with nicotine, while others are available without any nicotine concentrations. Each bottle containing flavored e-juice indicates “nicotine strength,” which tells you how much nicotine concentrate is in the e-liquid. This information can be found on the bottle’s label which usually indicates 1mg/ml, 2mg/ml, 6mg/ml, 8mg/ml, 12mg/ml, 16 mg / ml and 24mg/mL concentrations. E-liquids are created with different ratios of PG and VG, so depending on the ratio of PG and VG used in e-liquid production, the viscosity may vary from one brand to another.
