Not to be confused with Electronic cigarette
Electronic cigarettes, e-cigarettes, or simply Vapes are electric inhalers that release water vapor, rather than smoke. The water vapor often contains nicotine, because these devices are marketed as a healthier alternative for tobacco smokers. Modern e-cigarettes trace back to a 2003 invention by a Chinese pharmacist by the name of Hon Lik. Since their debut as a mass-market product, they have grown exponentially becoming extremely popular among younger people and while originally invented for a way to quit smoking, they are also often used for recreation.
Electronic cigarettes are typically housed in long cylindrical aluminum casings -- to mimic the appearance of tobacco cigarettes. The battery, which occupies the majority of the aluminum housing, provides the energy required to heat fine tungsten coils. These tungsten coils provide the heat required to vaporize the liquid contained in the aluminum housing.
Due to the short amount of time E-Cigarettes have been around there is concern around the long term effects of use. Many vape users tout the e-cig as a healthy alternative, while anti-vape crowds aren't so sure. The doubt mainly stems from lack of public knowledge on the contents of e-juice and the variability of ingredients from company to company and juice to juice. Many companies in response to those criticisms have released ingredient lists and some have gone all the way as to explain to the entire process of making the juice.
Vaping is very bad if you vape you die
DO NOT VAPE KIDS!!!!
~ Unless you use vape juice without nicotine, you will experience the effects of nicotine when vaping such as mood changes due to alteration of the balance of dopamine and noradrenaline in the brain. However, vaping delivers nicotine more safely than cigarettes.
