By using an E-Liquid, a person can produce a smoke similar to that found in a traditional cigarette. The most popular way of achieving this is with an electronic cigarette. This is an electronic device that works by heating up an E-Liquid to produce a vapour that the smoker can take in. While the inhaled vapour simulates the effect of cigarette smoking, it removes most of the deadly toxins that come from cigarette smoke.
The E-Liquid consists of four elements:
- Distilled pure water.
- Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerine.
- Liquid Nicotine.
While propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine provide the foundations for the E-Liquid, it is the flavours used that make the difference. There are a great number of premium e liquid flavours offered by manufacturers which also includes various tobacco and fruit flavours. It is these which give the inhaled vapour its taste. Without them, the vapour created by warming the E-Liquid would be tasteless. The final element in the E-Liquid is liquid nicotine. The concentration of liquid nicotine in the e-liquid can vary from 0 up to 20 mg which is the maximum set by European Union regulations.
Smoking is something that people have come to accept as not being good for a person’s health. As cigarette smoking has declined there has been a rise in the popularity of e-cigarettes which in turn has required the use of E-Liquid.
While it is a matter of discussion as to whether E-Liquids are safer than cigarette smoking it is too early to say. In the last ten years, e-cigarettes and the use of e liquid that goes with it have become a common way to quit smoking and reduce the harmful effects of cigarette smoke. Since E-Liquids can encompass different levels of nicotine in the product, some people have found it easier for them to quit. They have been able to make the best use of the E-Liquid by decreasing over time the amount of nicotine in the vapour they are inhaling. As a result, they have been able to lessen their dependency and eventually quit smoking.
