Which Liquids to Choose – With or Without Nicotine?
One of the main components of the electronic cigarette, which forms the vapour, is liquid. To date, this simple composition for vaping includes only 4-5 basic components and is presented in a very wide assortment. Liquids may have different nicotine content and a variety of flavor combinations. In general, electronic smoking today is not only fashionable and less harmful (in comparison with tobacco smoking), but also delicious!
How Does Vape Liquid Differ from Tobacco Cigarette Smoke?
The main and most significant difference is the absence of carcinogenic resins and other harmful element which ordinary cigarettes contain. As a consequence, vaping doesn’t pose any danger to the health of the smoker. As a general rule, there are only 4 components in vape liquids. The amount of each specific component in juice depends on the type of liquid and its manufacturer.
- Propylene glycol is a colorless slightly viscous liquid that has a sweetish flavor and a slight faint smell. It is one of the main components that is present in almost any juice for e-cigarettes. It is not toxic and refers to the approved food additives (E1520) in most countries. Propylene glycol is an excellent disinfectant. In the middle of the last century, it was actively used as a composition for spraying in large industries to purify the air. Among other things, propylene glycol is used for processing tobacco.
- Glycerin is an oily, colorless liquid that dissolves in water and can cause dehydration (dehydration). The substance is mainly used in the confectionery industry as an additive E422, which improves the consistency and prevents the sagging of chocolate. Glycerin is widely used in bakery. Due to the presence of this substance, bread slowly becomes stale, and pasta is less glued during cooking. Glycerin is also used in making extracts of coffee, tea, ginger, etc.
- Nicotine is another component of some liquids. Of course, no one will convince you that nicotine does not harm your health. At the same time, the medical nicotine of the greatest possible purification is added to the liquid for electronic cigarettes only because it is in this component that every smoker needs. It is important here to understand the way nicotine enters the body and the composition of the related substances. By the level of substance saturation, an electronic cigarette is no more dangerous than a nicotine patch or chewing gum. In addition, a person who has switched to electronic smoking can gradually reduce the level of nicotine in the acquired liquid.
- Flavors are not a required component in the liquid. However, it is this component which makes vaping more pleasant in terms of flavour. Most people are mistaken when they think that flavors are the absolute chemistry that brings harm to the body. In fact, only food flavors are used in the production of juice for vaping. Such flavors are thoroughly tested before being put into production, and when heated, they do not form toxic and poisonous substances.
Considering the composition of modern vape liquids, there is practically no major difference between juice types with or without nicotine. In both cases, the liquid type is thoroughly tested before being released to the market.
