What is Vaping?
Vaping is the act of inhaling vapor produced by a vaporizer or electronic cigarette. The vapor is produced from a material such as an e-liquid, concentrate, or dry herb. Vaping simulates smoking and delivers nicotine but in a less harmful manner. Vaping is free from tar, carbon monoxide, particulate smoke and it won't make your clothes or hair smell, and it'll only cost you a dollar or two a day.
What is a vaporizer?
A vaporizer is an electric device that turns vaping material into vapor. A vaporizer usually consists of a battery, main console or housing, cartridges, and an atomizer or cartomizer. The battery generates the power for the heating element in the atomizer or cartomizer, which contacts the vaping material and transforms it into vapor for inhalation.
What is in e-liquid?
E-liquid typically contains propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, plus flavours and the option of nicotine.
- Propylene glycol creates a throat sensation similar to smoking.
- A higher ratio of vegetable glycerine gives more vapour.
- Different flavours are added for personal preference. These are regulated under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
- Nicotine is optional and comes in different levels of strength.
