There is a popular trend going around these days known as vaping. And while it is trying to advance beyond trendy, into something more permanent, it has met some challenges along the ways. Between government regulations, and lobbying from tobacco companies, it faces stiff competition moving forward. While some of the proponents claim that it is a much safer alternative to smoking, there are those who say otherwise. So, we’ll take a look at what vaping actually consists of, and you can decide for yourself.
What Does Vaping Consist of?
Vaping started out as something resembling a regular cigarette, which had a refill cartridge. But, those are now being replaced by more advanced vape methods. Today if you go to a vape shop, you’ll find versions known as “Vape Pens” or “Mods”. While the pens are reasonably priced (usually under a bill), the mods (short for modified) can be quite expensive. This is because the atomizer (used to regulate the amount of vapor released) can be modified to release a large vape cloud. While you can find any of these items mentioned in various stores (the “cigs” version is basically reduced to convenience store’s these days), people have been gravitating towards the bigger and better version as they become accustomed to vaping.
Flavor, and More Flavor
ELiquid and Vape Juice is where the flavor comes from in a vaping device. While there is still nicotine, the flavor options are off the charts. An ELiquid can consist of nearly every fruit or bakery Eliquid flavor you can think of. This is probably the biggest reason why vaping has become so popular. People like flavor. And with ELiquids, you can mix and match flavors. You might want a custard flavor in the morning, a chocolate strawberry vape juice in the afternoon, and in the evening some candy apple might take care of your craving. That’s just a minuscule sample of the options you have.
So, you have numerous flavors, control over how much you take in, verses a burning cigarette, and you can control the amount of nicotine as well? Not to mention that at least right now, it’s perfectly legal even indoors. Many people have claimed it has helped them quit actual smoking, which means a significant reduction in chemical intake that you would find in regular cigarettes.
That’s what vaping is in a nutshell folks. Whether you’re a smoker, or just want to try something that tastes delicious, consider vaping as an alternative to the many unsafe options we have available to us in society today.
