What is vaping?

Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling vapor produced by heating an e-liquid in a vaporizer. E-liquids usually contain propylene glycol, glycerin, water, nicotine, and flavorings.

When we get addicted to cigarettes, we are actually getting addicted to nicotine. The presence of nicotine in e-liquids helps mimic the sensation of smoking a cigarette and subsequently helps quit smoking. 

Wait! E-liquids have nicotine? Then what's the point of switching?

Whilst nicotine is in fact addictive, it is relatively harmless compared to 7000 plus carcinogens found in cigarettes. To put this into perspective, according to Public Health England, vaping is about 95% less harmful than smoking.

How do you vape?

There are three components to vaping:

  • The vaporizer (vape)
  • The E-liquids (juice)
  • Nicotine (nic)

The general principle is you use a preferable vaporizer to vaporize flavored juice with a nicotine hit. Generally, we will come across 5 types of vapes,  7 flavors of e-liquids and 2 types of nicotine. 

The Vaporizer (Vape)

Jull and similar slim devices: replaceable cartridges with pre set e-liquid. Disposable. Example : Juul and Blu. 
Pros: Slick looking, portable.
Cons: Limited customizations.

Pocket Vapes: Pocket sized vapes with regulated controls for vapor production. Example: Aspire Nautilus AIO Kit.
Pros: Portable, regulated.
Cons: Not suitable for cloud chasing.
(Ed. note: Blue Monkey Vape Shop highly recommends Pocket Vapes as a starting device for beginners. Perfect to learn about vaping.)

Pen Vapes: Similar to Pocket vapes except spherical pen shape. Ex:  SMOK Vape Pen 22.

Box Mods: Large battery box with digital screen. Highly customizable with incredible strength. Can be set up with different tanks i.e. e-liquids containers. Ex: Fuchai R7 Kit.
Pros: Power, customizability, compatibility.
Cons: Bulky.

Custom mods: Custom made under minimum industrial supervision. Enthusiasts design some really cool looking vapes but they are highly volatile to use.
(The use and building of custom mods is highly discouraged due to the associated safety risk.)

The E-Liquids (E-juice/juice)

The beauty of vaping is the e-liquids selection. Unlike limited flavor options for a cigarette smoker, e-liquids offer a vast array of flavor selections. They can generally be categorized into 7 different categories:

Beverage flavored : For drink lovers. Ranging from Champagnes to liquor; soda to pop, tea to coffee.
Cereal Flavored : Flavors such as sugary fruity cereals, oatmeal, graham cracker, granola.
Custard Cream Flavored : A mixture of eggs, sugar and flour with milk. Added hints such as vanilla. 
Dessert Flavored : Flavors like apple pie, ice cream, blueberry custard, French toast, pancakes, donuts and so on. Dessert without the calories.
Fruit Flavored E-liquids :  Apple, grape, strawberry, mango, blueberry, orange and so on. The most popular type. 
Tobacco Flavored : Tastes and smells like genuine tobacco but without the harmful chemicals. 
Menthol Flavored : Peppermint, cinnamon, spearmint for a chilling vaping experience.

Nicotine

There are two types of nicotine available. freebase nicotine and the recently introduced nicotine salt. If your primary purpose for vaping is to quit smoking, nicotine salt is the way to go.

Freebase Nicotine: Traditional nicotine available since the inception of vaping. Comes in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and sometimes 18mg as well as 24mg. The higher the mg the more potent the nicotine hit. The idea is to start from a high nicotine level that satisfy your cravings and gradually bringing it down to 0mg. Once you get down to 0mg, congratulations you are not addicted to smoking (nicotine) anymore. 
Perfect for: clouds production, quitting smoking for ocassional smokers.
Pros: Widely available, huge selection, huge vapor production.
Cons: Harsh throat hit when used with high nicotine strength.

Nicotine salt: Introduced fairly recently, nicotine salt is perfect for heavy smokers looking to quit smoking.

Nicotine salts are comprised of the same exact nicotine that's found in its natural state within the tobacco leaf. They have a special ingredient called Benzoic Acid that helps to make Nicotine Salts as smooth and palatable in higher strengths while allowing our body to absorb it much more efficiently. They are usually designed to be used with smaller, low wattage devices.
Why is it recommended for heavy smokers: With traditional freebase nicotine, most people wouldn’t choose something over 18mg, as the hit would be too harsh.  However, with Nicotine Salts, most people who vape 3mg freebase nicotine are able to comfortably vape 25mg-50mg Nicotine Salts and Nicotine Salts help mimic the sensation of smoking a combustible cigarette. Since, nicotine salts allow consumption of heavy nicotine concentration without a harsh hit, it will help quit chain smokers.
Pros: Strong nicotine hit, inconspicuous, smooth vaping experience.
Cons: Less cloud production, limited options available for both e-liquids and devices due to recent entry into the market.  

Conclusion
