When you have never used a vaping product before, you likely have some questions. Fortunately, many of them can be answered by leading vape product suppliers and even in dedicated FAQ sections online.
However, that doesn’t mean you won’t still want to browse the internet to see if you can find the answers to your pressing questions. Vaping has been a significant topic of discussion in 2021, so we’ve highlighted some of the most commonly asked questions about it below.
What Are the Side Effects of Vaping?
According to the Ministry of Health and related reviews, are a few side effects are associated with vaping. However, none of those included in short to mid-term studies have detected ‘serious adverse events considered possibly related to vaping use’.
Many vapers experience coughing, shortness of breath, a dry mouth, dry throat, throat irritation, mouth irritation, and headaches. Sometimes, vapers can mitigate these side effects by vaping less frequently or adjusting the nicotine strength of their vape juice of choice.
Is it Better to Smoke or Vape?
It’s only natural to question whether it’s better for you to smoke or vape when you have a nicotine addiction. Vaping is not harmless, but the Ministry of Health agrees that it’s much less harmful than smoking.
Studies also back up this statement, showing that people who vape are exposed to fewer toxicants than those who smoke cigarettes. Therefore, if you are thinking about giving up smoking and believe vaping will help you do it, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that it’s a much less harmful alternative than if you were to keep smoking cigarettes.
How Many Cigarettes Are in a Vape Pod?
How many cigarettes are equal to one vape pod can depend on the brand and vape pod size. Generally, most vapers will be able to get around 200 puffs from a single pod, which has the nicotine equivalent of around one pack of cigarettes.
However, there are so many variables to consider. If you’re trying to compare cigarette smoking to vaping by cost, the Ministry of Health believes a 20-a-day smoker would spend up to $9,000 a year on cigarettes, while a vaper may spend approximately $900 per year.
What is the Liquid in a Vape?
You have every right to know what you’re putting in your body, so most reputable e-liquids suppliers will be more than happy to tell you what ingredients are in each vape product you buy. The most common liquids and ingredients to find in vape liquids are nicotine, propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and flavours.
If you ever have any queries about ingredients and you can’t find the information you need online, speak to the vape products supplier you’re purchasing from to find out more.
What Vape Juice is the Best?
There’s simply no way to answer this question for every vaper or smoker who’s transitioning to vaping. Everyone’s taste buds and preferences are different, and what someone else likes may not be what you like.
However, there’s no harm in being aware of your options so that you can make an informed choice based on what you believe you’d like. You can choose from a variety of flavour types, such as cakey, creamy, fruity, drink, candy, tobacco, minty, and menthol.
Smokers transitioning to vaping often choose menthol and tobacco flavours to mimic cigarette smoking, while some seasoned vapers like to get creative with sweeter flavours. There is such a broad range of options on the market that the most challenging part about vaping will be choosing your favourite flavour!
How to Balance a Vape Product’s Vapour and Flavour?
There can sometimes be a little bit of trial and error involved in choosing the perfect balance of flavour and vapour. However, many vapers have found that if they set the wattage between 50 and 10, they were able to enjoy an excellent balance of both at 0.3ohms.
Why Does My Vape Crackle?
Sometimes, you may notice a popping or crackling sound when you vape. Your first thought might be that something is wrong with your vape, but that’s not the case! More often than not, the sound comes from your vape’s coil heating up the vape juice and turning it into vapour.
If your e-liquid is at room temperature or cold, it can react to a hot coil and make that familiar crackling sound.
Does Vape Juice Go Off in the Tank?
If you have been vaping less frequently or operate more than one vape, you may be wondering if your vape juice will go off in the tank. While leaving the fluid in the tank overnight will not cause it to decay, it can start to if left for two days or longer.
Vape juice can decay inside wicks and tanks, leading to a less than satisfactory vaping experience. Avoid that by emptying any vape liquid out of a tank that has been sitting.
