What is an Electronic Cigarette?
An electronic cigarette is a long shaped tube device that, with the help of a battery, produces vapour when inhaled.
How does an Electronic cigarette work?
An electronic cigarette functions when the user inhales the e-liquid into the atomizer, the atomizir then converts this e-liquid into vapour which can be “smoked” just like a traditional cigarette.
What is an Electronic Cigarette made of?
The majority of Electronic Cigarettes are made up of these components:
• A rechargeable battery that is used to power the device
• An atomizser that heats and converts the E-liquid into vapour
• A mouthpiece used to inhale the vapour or “smoke”
What is E-liquid ?
E-liquid is the substance that is heated and converted to vapour smoke. E-liquid comes in many flavours to suit every taste.
What is E-Liquid made of?
There are three core components to e-liquid:
• An agent to produce the vapour
• Nicotine (although you can get e-liquids without nicotine)
The agent is either made with propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerine (VG). Both of these are in many food substances and appropriate for human intake.
Are Electronic Cigarettes Healthy and Safe?
There is yet to be a study to prove whether electronic cigarettes are safe or not so it is difficult to give a straight answer. If one looks at the facts, traditional cigarettes contain about 4000 chemical some of which are highly toxic. Electronic cigarettes use propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine, flavouring and nicotine, you can come to your own conclusion.
