What is Vaping?
Firstly.................Vaping is not smoking.
Vaping is intended for current adult smokers that would like to continue to enjoy their nicotine habit with a much healthier alternative for themselves & others thus reducing the risk. Vaping utilizes a Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerine based liquid, mix this with a small amount of nicotine and a food grade flavour that then gets vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer simulating the experience of smoking. The vapour created in inhaled and exhaled much like the smoke from a cigarette, hence the term “Vaping” as opposed to “Smoking”.
Liquid is generally catagorised in “milligrams” of nicotine ranging from “0mg” up to “36mg”. The stronger the nicotine (mg) the stronger the throat sensation, or more commonly referred to as “throat hit’, it will create. It is totally up to the individual user to determine how much, if any, nicotine they want to use. I would suggest starting on a lower milligram level of nicotine that you are use to with your current cigarettes and working your way up to a level that will satisfy your nicotine craving. If your intentions are to reduce your nicotine cravings entirely you would, over time, reduce the milligram level of nicotine to “0mg” and if you choose to you can continue with your Vaping and just enjoy the vast choices of flavors available.
No nasty smoke smell in your Hair, Clothes, House, Car.
No smell clinging to you at all.
No more Butts or Ashtrays to Clean Up.
No more Smoking Outside.
No more worrying about offending anyone standing nearby.
You can even Vape in bed without the worry of falling asleep with a lit cigarette.
The content of the liquid solution used in e-cigs includes three primary ingredients: nicotine (except in Zero nicotine choices), flavourings, water and pharmaceutical-grade propylene glycol.
Propylene glycol is added as a vaporizable base to dilute pure liquefied nicotine
Because of its water-retaining properties, propylene glycol is the compound of choice for delivering atomized medications. It has been used in asthma inhalers and nebulizers since the 1950’s
In e-cigarettes, propylene glycol allows atomization to take place at substantially lower temperatures than required for a tobacco cigarette and will also help carry / deliver the nicotine when the vapor is inhaled
While the contents of the liquid solution found in ejuice’s may vary depending upon brands, the major ingredients usually remain the same.
What is propylene glycol?
Propylene glycol is a clear, colourless, slightly syrupy liquid at room temperature. It may exist in air in the vapor form, although propylene glycol must be heated or briskly shaken to produce a vapor
Propylene glycol is practically odourless and tasteless
Propylene glycol is a chemical made by reaction of propylene oxide with water
Propylene glycol has had an unsurpassed reputation for safe use in a wide range of consumer products, including food products, animal feed, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, as well as industrial applications
It’s used as a stabilizer (to keep things held together, and keep them from evaporating), and to keep foods moist. It’s used in many of the foods that we eat, and the FDA deems it safe for human consumption.
Safety of propylene glycol:
It has been used safely for more than 50 years, including in health-sensitive products such as food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, where the molecule mainly serves as non-active ingredient or carrier of other substances
Studies have proven that propylene glycol has a very low degree of toxicity
In the body, propylene glycol is rapidly converted into lactic acid, in a similar manner to what happens with sugar (energy) in the muscles during sports.
VG - Vegetable Glycerine USP (Food Grade)
Pure 100% Kosher USP food grade vegetable glycerin. This product conforms to USP and FDA specifications and can be used in food, beverage, and medical applications and is suitable for use in toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items and e-Liquids.
The Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine used by itsVaping is purchased through an Australian company which is manufactured here in Australia. The reason we have made that choice is because Australian Health and Safety standards are the highest standards in the world and you can be assured our Propylene Glycol is 99.8% pure.
