Is Vape Safe?

Monday, 18 April 2016  |  Admin

Oh, hello, are you new? Welcome to the wonderful world of vaping! We can probably predict all those questions going about your head: “Is Vaping Safe?”, “Is it Safe to Vape?”, “Are E-Cigarettes Safe?”, asking the internet for help probably ended up with you being overwhelmed with news articles, scientific studies and angry forum posters. Don’t worry, you don’t have to read them all, we’ve got the important facts for you right here.

Vaping: The Facts

  • Vaping is tar, tobacco and smoke free
  • Vaping can be done with or without nicotine
  • Vaping ‘smoke’ is not smoke at all, simply vapour that is completely harmless to those around you
  • A nicotine-free vape liquid is made of 100% safe ingredients that are also commonly found in foods
  • Most vapers use vaping as an alternative to tobacco
  • Many vapers follow a “step-down” process, lowering their nicotine use over time
  • Carbon monoxide levels as produced by a vapestick are minimal
  • Nothings burns in a e-cig, meaning zero smoke inhalation or other nasty by-products of combustion, and keeping your safe from hot ash!
  • Reported allergic reactions are due to PG, propylene glycol, a common food additive which can be easily replaced with 100% natural Vegetable Glycerine (VG)
  • Vaping is undoubtedly safer than traditional cigarettes

Catching Up on Your Studies

It is important to consider the fact that vaping is a relatively new . As such, even the most in-depth study into the pros and cons of your trusty little vapestick will not have the benefit of a long-term research perspective. However as of now studies suggest that vaping is much safer than smoking tobacco. The fact that vaping is tar free and produces no passive smoke gives e-cigarettes a massive advantage in regards to safety.

While some studies have shown that vaping has had adverse effects on mice, any negative impact vaping may or may not have on humans is yet to be confirmed. Studies proving any detrimental effects of long-term vaping are yet to be released, but there are already millions of e-cigarette users who have used vaping to wean themselves off tobacco, and who can confirm that vaping has had only a positive effect on their lifestyles.

Safer Than Cigarettes

Due to the limited amount of research, it is currently impossible to know the extent to which vaping is safe over an extended period. Working with what we do know though, vaping has been around for a little over a decade now and no cases of vaping-induced diseases have ever been confirmed. In comparison there are over 100,000 cigarette-related deaths reported each and every year. Thus it’s probably fair to say that vaping is the safest way to smoke.

We could talk all night about the vaping pros (and a little less long about the hypothetical cons) but if you want to save time, why not just give it a try yourself? Our online store stocks hundreds of flavours for you to choose from, including high level and zero nicotine options, all from high quality brands that ensure you can enjoy a far healthier smoking alternative every time!
