A recent survey on cigarette smoking uncovered some interesting facts. Currently, there are about a billion smokers scattered all over the globe. Of these one billion smokers, over 60 percent are males, and the rest are female. Tobacco is still the most consumed nicotine-rich drug, but recently there has been an upsurge in the consumption of marijuana and other vapor products. Vaping, which refers to the use of electronic cigarettes, first became popular in 2007, after the introduction of the world’s first vape mod. This piece seeks to enlighten you on what vaping is all about as well as describing the vape mod in detail.
What is vaping?
Vaping is a smoking habit that entails inhaling and exhaling an aerosol, produced by vaporizing the e-liquid components. Vaping occurs on an electronic cigarette, abbreviated as e-cig, which is essentially a handheld battery powered gadget that mimics the functionality of a traditional cigarette.
Vape mod features
An e-cigarette has multiple components but the ones that stand out are the atomizer and the vaporizer. The atomizer is the container that is responsible for holding and discharging the e-liquid. The vaporizer, on the other hand, is the component that facilitates the breakdown of the e-juice into an inhalable aerosol. To aid this breakdown, vapor pens sport an inbuilt rechargeable battery. The battery powers the heating column which then breaks down the e-liquid into an inhalable vapor. The device is activated by either pressing a dedicated button or by taking a puff from the mouthpiece.
The most common ingredients that make up the e-liquid include nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerin, water, and flavors. Together, these ingredients produce a dense vapor, something that is appreciated by many smokers. Though vaporizers have a lower concentration of nicotine compared to traditional cigarettes, there is still the risk of addiction. Nowadays, some vaporizers contain marijuana, though this option is strictly for therapeutic purposes. Marijuana is often used to treat patients suffering from chronic pain and unrest.
Purchasing a vapor pen
Nowadays it is easy to get your hands on a vaping device. However, because vaping devices come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and specification, it is advisable to consider your options before buying carefully. Vape mods can be purchased directly from the manufacturer or an authorized online store. A high-end e-cig will cost you a few hundred dollars. Some of the best features available on a vape pen include variable wattage and temperature control.
Vaping is a habit that is gradually picking up especially among young generations who view it as classy and fashionable. There is also a belief that vaping can help tobacco addicts quit cigarette smoking. However, there hasn’t been enough evidence to verify these claims.
