Who uses e-juice?
More and more former smokers using e-cigarettes as opposed to traditional cigarettes every day. Studies are showing that e-juice use is rising and even surpassing traditional tobacco use year-over-year. Nicotine juice allows for the user to pick one of hundreds of e-juice flavors they like as opposed to the usual “smoke from fire” or “smoke from fire with mint” that old cigarettes offer. And smokers are using the power of e-juice to kick their smoking habit once and for all.
What is in e-juice?
Put simply: water, nicotine, flavoring and vegetable glycerin or propylene glycol. Considering that nicotine recognized as safe for consumer consumption, the major concern with e-juice is not what’s in it, but how much to use of it. The difference between the glycerin and the propylene glycol (this is not industrial grade like antifreeze, but consumer grade, like a preservative) is personal taste.
When do you need more e-juice?
Thanks to the variety of easy to use e-cigarette devices on the market, that’s up to you! Some devices have a stronger “pull” which will use a little more juice, others use less. The key is finding the right balance to make sure you have enough to go through the day (some vaporizers last as little as a few hours without refill; some last over a day.)
Where do I use my e-juice?
E-juice often comes in a variety of bottle sizes, so it’s fairly portable. That said, few things are stranger to a non-smoker than watching someone refill their e-cigarette (smokers are usually fascinated by the process) and so it’s best to do it at the start or end of the day.
Why do you need e-juice?
The simple answer is that you need it for the same reason smokers don’t just puff on a filter: the e-juice gives the e-cigarette both the nicotine and the flavor. The beauty of e-juice is that you can have a different experience with your e-cigarette every time you use it with a variety of e-juice flavors.
How do I use my e-juice?
Every e-cigarette is different, so you need to make sure you’re familiar with the one you’re using. The most basic models of e-cigarettes work by just removing a cap and carefully pouring liquid. It’s as simple as that!
