What is vaping?

Vaping is the act of inhaling vapour produced by a vape, otherwise known as a vaporizer or e-cigarette. The vapour is produced from a liquid called e-liquid. It may not be the most original title but this liquid is generally consisting of propylene glycol, glycerin, water, nicotine, and usually some kind of flavouring. Vaping is the process of using your vaporizer to heat the liquid which contains the nicotine, and inhale the vapour that is produced.

What is a vaporizer?

In a nutshell, a vaporise is the device that allows you to turn the e-liquid into vape for you to enjoy. Generally vapes come in a variety of different shapes and sizes and have different functionality depending on your level of expertise. These can control the power (to adjust whether you want big clouds or lots of flavour), and have an impact depending on the nicotine level you are running at.

Where do I get vape juice / e-liquids?

Well if you’re living in the United Kingdom, you are going to be spoilt for choice! You can buy vape juice from almost anywhere including supermarkets, corner shops, specialist vaping shops, even places you wouldn’t expect including pound stores and chemists. Our recommendation is to buy off a trusted online retailer such at Vapestore, as you will have a massive range of juice at competitive prices.

Is the vapour that’s produced dangerous?

No. It’s water. As the process of vaping looks very much like smoking, a lot of the negative connotations connecting with smoking have been connected with vaping. It’s not the same! The vapour that your lungs inhale remove both the flavour and the nicotine, and what you breathe out is pure water vapour.

What is e-juice and e-liquid?

Vape juice or e-liquid is the primary liquid used in vaporizers, and consists of a PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerin) base, flavorings, and may or may not contain nicotine. Generally speaking if you’re making the switch from cigarettes to vape then you are going to want some nicotine in your vape to make the switch more comfortable.

There is a loads of variety of e-liquids available on the market, and you can find flavours reaching far and wide. A typical selection will usually involve fruit flavour, sweets, mint, you name it, it probably exists. You can even get tobacco flavoured vape.
