What is Vaping?

Vaping is NOT smoking and Vapers do not refer to them as shisha pens, by definition ‘vaping’ is the act of inhaling water vapor through a personal vaporizer (PV) or an electronic cigarette (e-cig) A vaporizer is a device consisting of a battery and heating elements. When activated, the heating element boils a small amount of liquid in the device, creating a vapor which is then inhaled and exhaled by the user. Vaping eliminates 4000+ chemicals and carcinogenic compounds that come from real cigarettes, without compromising the act of ‘smoking’ itself. Vaping products may also contain nicotine as an option which is a highly addictive substance.

Is it Safe?

Obviously, the safest thing to do is to quit smoking altogether. There are many questions left to be answered about e-cigarettes, since “vaping” is a rather new practice. There are now more promising studies that show that “vaping” is a much safer practice and studies prove it to be 97% safer then traditional tobacco. This study adds to growing evidence that e-cigarettes are a much safer alternative to tobacco, and suggests the long term effects of these products will be minimal. One thing is certain, e-cigarettes do not contain the 4000+ toxic chemical that come from smoking the traditional cigarette.

Personal Vaporizers

TUBE, MODS – the main console of the vaporizer.
BATTERY – housed power source usually charged through a USB.
CARTRIDGE – component that houses the e-juice.
ATOMIZER – heats up the e-juice and creates the vapor that’s inhaled and exhaled.
CARTOMIZER – combination of the atomizer and cartridge in one.
TIP – end where the vaporizer is inhaled.

E-Juice / E-Liquid 

Liquid based four main ingredients: Nicotine, Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG), Flavouring – all of which show no evidence of being a carcinogen,  Nicotine, optional with or without level of density.

Nicotine Density

0mg = NO nicotine
3mg = Super Light (Very Light Density)
6mg = Ultra Light (Low Density)
12mg = Medium (Med. Density)
18mg = Regular (High Density)

E-juice / E- liquid Storage

For best results, please store your liquids upright in a cool dark room. Make sure the room is well ventilated and kept out of reach of children and pets. We recommend you store your supply in a locked cupboard or drawer which cannot be tampered with. Please keep away from naked flames or any heat source, and do not mix with incompatible substances. It is best to store your liquids away from any other substances that can contaminate it. E-Liquids are not suitable for pregnant or lactating women or anybody under the age of 18. We do not and will not knowing sell or supply to people who are at risk. Our liquids are supplied in childproof bottles, CLP & TPD/TRPR compliant for safety reasons, we strongly advise you to keep the liquid in its current bottle rather than transfer to a different source. It is always best to use your liquid before the recommended best before date however, unopened bottles can be used in excess of this date of up to 18 months.

Difference Between PG e-liquid, VG e-liquid, PG/VG Mix

Vegetable Glycerin (VG) e-liquid is a thick, a little sweet liquid. VG e-liquid produces plenty of vapor. VG e-liquid also produces a sweeter taste to your liquid. Propylene Glycol (PG) e-liquid is a much thinner liquid. PG e-liquid produces more of a “throat hit” than VG e-liquid does, which simulates the feel of smoking. PG e-liquid also has a higher rate of sensitivity for some people, meaning that some people may be illergic to PG in their e-liquid.
