Health Questions

Is Vaping bad for me

A recent study at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland found that the cancer danger of vaping is almost as low as for nicotine replacement therapies like patches and gum — less than one percent. “This study should put to rest any doubt within the tobacco control movement about whether vaping greatly reduces health risk compared to smoking,” wrote Boston University’s Dr. Michael Siegel.

Do e-cigarettes contain anti-freeze?

Absolutely not!

This myth was created by a 2009 FDA press statement regarding electronic cigarettes. The FDA tested 18 cartridges from 2 companies. Of those 18 cartridges, 1 tested positive for a non-toxic amount of diethylene glycol (approximately 1%). While diethylene glycol is occasionally used in anti-freeze, the chemical is not a standard ingredient in e-cigarette liquid and it has not been found in any other samples tested to date.

The base liquid for e-cigarette liquid is usually propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is considered GRAS (Generally
Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and EPA. While it is also sometimes found in anti-freeze, it is actually added to make the anti-freeze less toxic and safer for small children and pets. Propylene glycol is a common ingredient found in
many of the foods we eat, cosmetics we use and medications we take. It is also used in the fog machines used in theaters and night clubs.

Does nicotine cause cancer ?

No. Nicotine is the addictive active ingredient found in cigarettes, therefore is used in e-liquids. Studies have shown that about 50 of the (over) 4,000 combusted chemicals in traditional cigarettes may cause cancer.

What are the benefits of vaping?

Satisfies your craving for nicotine

Enjoy breathing again!

Can vaping give me popcorn lung?

No they can’t. Vaping at worst has trace amounts of Diacetly, the chemical that causes popcorn lung however, cigarettes do contain diacetyl (and acetoin). In fact, a lot of it. A regular cigarette smoker probably inhales more than 100 times as much diacetyl as any vaper. But there has never been a diagnosed case of popcorn lung in a smoker, except smokers who also inhaled diacetyl directly at one of the studied flavoring factories.

Vape Questions

How can I produce more vapor?

Try a variable voltage battery —they tend to produce more vapor than standard batteries. Also consider purchasing lower ohm coils or try getting into rebuild-able atomizers. Drippers produce the most vapour.

What is Ohms(Ω)?

Ohms(Ω) is a measure of electrical resistance, and understanding ohms can be very beneficial for you as a vaper. … Ohms help vapers with understanding what wattage or voltage their replacement atomizers/coils can handle. A general rule of thumb would be the lower the ohm, the higher the wattage/voltage and vice versa.

PG & VG Ratios?

Now most eliquid companies mix both PG and VG together to retain the advantages of the 2 ingredients. PG deliver you better flavor taste, stronger throat hit, and VG produce more vapors. The typical ratio of the PG and VG is 50/50, 60/40 and 70/30

THC VS CBD?

One of the key differences between CBD and THC is whether the cannabinoid will cause a euphoric effect, or “high,” when consumed.

THC is the cannabinoid people think of when they think of marijuana. It is a direct agonist of the endocannabinoid system’s cannabinoid 1 receptors (CB1), found primarily in the brain and the central nervous system. The psychoactive effect that most associate with recreational or medical marijuana use is exclusively brought about by activating CB1receptors.

CBD doesn’t bind with CB1 receptors and is actually is considered an antagonist of CB1agonists. This not only means that CBD can never cause a high, no matter how much is consumed, but that it also acts to suppress the CB1-activating qualities of compounds like THC.

I just purchased my Ecig and it doesn't work?
I hear a gurgling sound and I am barely getting any vapor production, is this supposed to happen?
This means that your atomizer is flooded with e-liquid. Too much e-liquid causes saturation of the atty’s wick and heating coils, thus making vapor production very difficult as well as making a “bubbling” or ” gurgling” when the vapor attempts to pull (draw) from the device’s drip-tip.
