For several years now the electronic cigarette has been around. In recent years this product has become even more popular. People who have smoked cigarettes for years are now buying the electronic version and selecting their own flavor of e-liquid to go with it. And with the amount of interest in the product, there is also a great deal of interest in learning about this special liquid that is used inside the smokeless cigarette.
What is e-liquid?
E-liquid is to the electric cigarette what tobacco is to original cigarette. It is made up of nicotine, flavoring, and the propylene glycol used to create visible smoke. This liquid is heated and vaporized by the e-cigarette and works to provide both the look and the taste of a real cigarette. While many of the e-liquid flavors, or e-juice, are associated with giving ex-smokers that traditional taste they are used to when smoking actual cigarettes, other flavor options deviate. Imagine having coconut or banana flavored liquid, well it is possible.
E-liquid vs. Regular Tobacco
Consider this list of some of the benefits one can expect when switching from smoking traditional cigarettes, where tobacco is present, over to e-cigs where e-liquid is present:
1. None of the carcinogens are present that are there when tobacco is smoked.
2. The liquid is vaporized and doesn’t produce the type of harmful smoke that other cigarettes do.
3. Although nicotine may well be present, it is not absorbed in the same way and at the same levels by the body.
4. Consumers have the option of purchasing tobacco flavors or other fruit and candy flavors for more variety.
There can be no doubt that the electronic cigarette is here to stay. It has become the new trendy and fashionable way to remain chic and cool without causing the damage that research shows are inherent with smoking actual cigarettes.
In addition, those making the switch from smoking traditional cigarettes to electric cigarettes often feel better about the impact they are having on the environment as well. It may be a little more fun to try out all the different flavors of eliquid to smoke in your smokeless cigarette when they know it won’t cause the same negative effects to the surrounding environment that regular smoke would
