Vaping Basics

HOW IT WORKS

Lighting a traditional cigarette causes tobacco to burn and produces smoke that contains nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide and 4,000 other chemicals.

Electronic cigarettes don’t rely on this process of combustion; instead, e-cigs heat a nicotine liquid and turns it into a mist.  This vapor is what is inhaled simulating the sensation of smoking.

THERE ARE 3 MAIN COMPONENTS TO AN ELECTRONIC VAPOR DEVICE

BATTERIES

Rechargeable lithium ion batteries are the power supply needed to vaporize e-liquid.  The size of the battery determines the amount of vapor produced and how long a battery will last before needing to be recharged.  The most important things to consider when choosing a battery are output (volts) and capacity (mAH).

E-JUICE

E-juice is a mixture of nicotine, flavor and diluents.

NICOTINE

Our nicotine comes from an FDA approved lab called Alchem International. We are proud to be using NicSelect and it is tested to be 99.2 – 99.6% pure nicotine.

FLAVOR

Because the nicotine is extremely pure there are no residual tobacco flavors.  In order to have an e-liquid with great taste, flavors must be added.  We use food grade flavorings that can be combined to produce an infinite number great flavor combinations.

DILUENTS

Our third main ingredient dilutes the nicotine and provides the vapor to transports the nicotine and flavor to the user. The diluents we use are:

Propylene Glycol (PG) – Propylene glycol is a colorless, odorless liquid which is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for use as a direct food additive under the conditions prescribed. It is approved by the U.S. FDA for certain indirect food additive uses.2 PG is used as an excipient (inert solvent or carrier) in pharmaceuticals.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG) – Vegetable Glycerin is a clear white viscous liquid that is produced from select vegetable feed stocks and refined.  It is a common food and pharmaceutical additive and meets USP specifications and is produced in a FDA registered facility.
