The Beginner's Guide to E-Cigarettes
What is an e-cig and vaping?
- Electronic cigarettes are battery powered smoking devices designed to give a similar draw and feel to smoking tobacco cigarettes. They have cartridges in them which can be filled with ‘e-liquid’ that can have nicotine or just flavouring. There is heating unit installed in e-cigarettes which converts this e-liquid into vapor which you can inhale, which is why some people call it “vaping”.
What is e-liquid?
- Vape juice or Ejuice is a mixture of water, food grade colouring, and propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG). In countries outside Australia, e-liquid is also available with nicotine. The flavouring used is often found in food products and is safe to consume. 90% of the e-liquid will be made up of either PG or VG, and the other 10% is typically made up of nicotine and food grade colouring and flavouring.
- There is a debate among vapers about PG vs VG. You can buy e liquid which is a mixture. The main differences are that PG is thinner. PG makes a better ‘throat’ hit, making it feel like a cigarette. A second advantage to PG juice is that it has no impact on flavouring. VG produces bigger fluffier clouds which some consumers like and can be sweeter.
Is it legal?
- The use of e-cigarettes has increased over the years, the laws vary from state to state. E-cigarettes are legal to use, however it is illegal to sell e-liquid containing nicotine at present.
