An electronic cigarette uses e liquid glycol substance that becomes vaporized with a built in atomizer inside the e cigarette. The E liquid is also called the ‘juice’, and it is the ‘tobacco’ of the e cigarette.
The ‘juice’ comes in many different flavors and can even be a nicotine based liquid to give satisfaction to the user in that area. Some of the flavors offered are strawberry, cherry, lime, lemon, chocolate, blueberry, mint, apple, cinnamon, peppermint, menthol, and even cigarette. Nicotine also is an option in that you can choose the level of nicotine you want your e cigarette to have.
Many people have been able to quit the tobacco cigarette habit by starting out with a nicotine package equal to their old brand, and then tapering down until it is at a low rate, or totally gone. It is very easy to do, and it works on the same principle as nicotine gum or nicotine patches.
There are now as many companies selling the e liquid by itself as there are ecigarette companies. While eliquid does come with most ecigarette kits, there is always the option to purchase the eliquid separately.
While all the different e liquid companies purport to having the very best in e liquids, they are all mostley propylene glycol mixtures with flavoring. The ideas is to use the flavor of your choice and have some variety of which flavor you wish to choose that particular day.
As in all cases such as this, a fairly new novelty, regulators feel the need to get their hands on products like these and regulate them, because that is what they do, and it could be another source of tax revenue. The premise is that since the ingredients in the e cig fluid is unknown (propylene glycol), then there needs to be regulation. It seems rather silly, because up to this point the e cig industry has been a pretty good regulator of themselves. There is nothing harmful in the liquid, and it is working well for millions of people.
Because of the e liquid being able to be atomized so readily, a nice white plume of smoke emits from the other end of the e cigarette. This is very pleasing from the e cigarette user, because most of the time he or she will be in the process of doing something, and they will not have to worry about an ash falling off of the end, and burning something.
The vapor does make the e cigarette look very realistic, so much so that people have been reprimanded by others in ‘no smoking’ areas because they see the vapor wafting up, into the air and they just assume that it is tobacco smoke.
However, nothing could be further from the truth, as you smile and point out that you are not smoking, but you are vaping, the new term for using the vapor of an electronic cigarette. The future is bright for the e cigarette, and the e liquid as well.
