If you’ve heard the term “e-juice,” “vape juice” or “e-liquid” before and not been sure what it was or what was in it, have no fear, because it is merely three names for the same thing. Or have you wondered what is in eJuice?
If I were writing its definition, it would go like this; ejuice, e-liquid, or vape juice is liquid that is infused, with many many flavors and different levels of nicotine. But I did find an official definition so I will share that with you.
Vape juices are mixed, by mixing nicotine and flavorings with a solvent — often propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, or a mixture of the two.
With the popularity of personal vaporizers and box mods, which are the electronic device that heats the liquid into a vapor, are on the rise. ejuice or vape juice interests have become a favorite subject throughout the world.
Furthermore, always remember ejuice, liquid, and vape juice is the same thing. Heck if you know that you are almost an expert!
Since this subject was made known to me in one of my comments, it opened my eyes to the fact my posts will read by people thinking about starting vaping. That kind of change my game plan a little because I never wanted to convince someone to vape only help those already vaping, vape on a budget.
I started vaping seven years ago as a way to quit smoking cigarettes, and if you aren’t careful, you could spend thousands of dollars you didn’t need to be staying away from local smoke shops and convenient stores. Altomently I want to help me save money by taking advantage of the savings found online.
Ok, I getting off subject a bit so let get to business and go over some of the health warnings. I will report that I have researched but If you want a complete list of anything or everything you need to visit the AMA website.
1. Does vaping effect my teeth and gums? The first report from the AMA says yes. Ingesting Nicotine can cause damage to your teeth. But then there was a story that told vaping wasn’t harmful So If this subject alarms you, use google and read each report and make up your own.
2. The next big concern is whether or not vaping causes Popcorn Lung. The following is the ALA issues warning:
The chemicals found in e-cigarette liquid, known as “e-juice,” may be a potential cause of popcorn lung. According to the American Lung Association, using electronic cigarettes or vaping, particularly the flavored varieties, can cause popcorn lung.
Picking The Nicotine Level
The strength you choose will be dependent upon your tolerance. Those that switch to vaping after being heavy smokers tend to prefer higher concentrations of nicotine.
For me, it was 16mgs, and then I moved down to 11mgs and sometimes going back 16mgs during stressful times.
But then again I was a pack and half smoker for close to thirty years. Those who smoked cigarettes only a small amount before switching to vaping tend to with lower strength e-liquid nicotine volumes.
The best bet is to experiment and see which nicotine strength works best for you. I recommend you start at a lower level and move up from there.
Be careful not to start too high at first because if it’s too loud, you’ll end up throwing it away and that is a massive waste of money. My partner is a manager at a big chain convenience store, and he gives me the 411 on how the vaping products are doing.
He told me a story about one of his regulars, a vast, robust truck driver, came in and purchased a reduced nicotine disposable e-cigarette because the last one was way too strong, so remember, start low and work up if you also have.
4 Main Ingredients
- Water – What can I say other than H2O! Make sure you drink as much as you can because nothing is better for you than water.
- Propolyne Glycol, a lot of your e-liquids, comes with PG based which gives the most flavor.
- Or Vegetable Glycerin – Some of our more popular flavors of vape juice come in VG for those who are sensitive to PG. VG based e-liquid does tend to give more vapor but is also thicker which may lessen the life of atomizers
- Only approved food grade flavors and Nicotine are mid in your eJuice, e liquids, or vape juice.
Why I Started Vaping with Vape Juice
It all started with sneaking cigarettes out of my parent’s cigarette packs when I was a child and teenager. So I was a bit of a lost cause for when I was old enough to buy them myself. So yes I started young on my nicotine addiction rollercoaster ride.
So I became a regular smoker at eighteen and smoked for 30years. Now I have tried and failed to quit smoking because I knew it was terrible for me. Patches, the mint things, gum, and even some of those voodoo stop smoking tactics I found online. These things would not work therefore seven years ago when vaping came into the picture,
Vaping worked! It was gradual, but vaping helped me quit smoking. I have read all the articles about its dangers but compared to smoking cigarettes. Besides I read a report that their results could not prove vaping cause any of the preceding claims. Smoking cigarettes are 100 times more dangerous than vaping, in my opinion.
Therefore I chose the lessor, by far lesser of two evils. I think the world as a whole might be better without smoking anything, but if history has taught us anything, smokers are going to burn. Why not try to make it safer if we can, maybe not perfect but safer.
I hope I did an excellent job explaining, “What is in EJuice.” Or ELiquid, or vape juice whatever you prefer to call that nicotine-infused juice. I want to thank the person who asked me why on a previous post. I like writing better when I can answer a question from the community. So leave your comments because your problem could be my next article. As always, I wish you all the best and many great days!
