Is an electronic cigarette healthier for you?
The answer is yes!
Traditional cigarettes have over 400 approved ingredients. When a cigarette is burned, those ingredients undergo a state change and resulting chemical reaction. Therefore, the combustion process creates and releases about 4000 chemicals.
Typical e-cigarette juices have about 4-5 chemicals. These include PG and/or VG, Nicotine, Distilled Water, and Flavorings. These ingredients are not combusted so there are no additional chemicals created.
What does an electronic cigarette consist of?
There are 4 parts that make up an electronic cigarette:
Battery: Sends power to the cartomizer.
Cartomizer: Consists of a coil which vapourizes liquid.
Charger: Recharges the battery
PG/VG Flavoured Nicotine Base
How does it work?
Vapour is a Liquid that is heated to boiling point. To achieve this the battery is activated which sends power to the cartomizer. The coil, similar to a toaster, heats up the liquid inside. It takes a few seconds to get the coil to heat the liquid to it’s boiling point. So initially a regular puff on an electronic cigarette should be at least 3-6 seconds. Through this process the user will recieve the cessation of smoking.
