What is an e-cigarette?
An Electronic cigarette (e-cig) is a portable, battery-powered device that closely simulates smoking by vaporizing e-liquid (containing PG and/or VG), flavor and delivers nicotine in milligrams that range from zero to 36. E-cigarettes utilize the latest technology to create nicotine vapor in a variety of flavors.
How do e-cigarettes work?
E-cigarettes come in a variety of types including cartridge based, tank based, and e-liquid loaded into a “clearomizer” and powered by a small battery. E-cigarettes and vapor from e-liquid are free of harmful tar, carcinogenic substances and the combustion gases present in regular cigarettes, however the long term effects of ‘vaping’ are still being studied.
More simply, e-cigarettes use a power source, a heating element, and liquid to create a nicotine based vapor that simulates the effects of smoking.
Can individuals under 18 use e-cigarettes?
E-cigarettes are not to be used by anyone under the age of 18.
Will e-cigarettes help me quit smoking?
Switching to “vaping” is not a guarantee to quit smoking “analog” cigarettes. However, hundreds of thousands of testimonials exist that state individuals utilized vaping to transition to a “smoke-free” lifestyle. E-cigarettes are not regulated by the FDA and the long term effects of “vaping” are still being studied, although there is a lot of research to support that it is, in fact, much safer.
