VaporFi Rebel IIThere are a lot of webpages and posts out there on how vaporizer pens can be used to give up cigarettes but not a whole lot on how nicotine can be given up entirely. While the transition from traditional cigarettes to e-cigs or vaporizers is not an overly hard process to manage, the journey from high nicotine intake to zero nicotine intake can be.

Moving to vaporizing is not hard. If you switch to a high dose nicotine e liquid then it’s just a matter of making the change and dealing with the psychological adjustment of changing mediums and vaping instead of smoking.

How was it for me?

For me this took about a week – and it wasn’t hard. This was probably for two reasons.

Firstly I was already vaporizing for other reasons besides fulfilling my daily nicotine needs. I already was versant with the experience so it made sense to carry over my nicotine habit as well.

Secondly as I already had a 3 in 1 vape pen it made sense to utilize the liquid chamber to suit my smoking cessation goals – it was a no brainer.

But even if you are a complete newbie to vaping, I cannot see the adjustment as being too difficult as long as your nicotine needs are being met.

How did this carry over into giving up nicotine?

I won’t lie it wasn’t easy. But by the same token it wasn’t overly difficult either.

I was a heavy smoker (25-30 cigs per day), so initially I bought 2 x 25ml bottles of e liquid with a 24mg nicotine content with a traditional tobacco flavor. With my vaporizer pen this amounted to around 1200-1400 puffs per bottle (maybe a little more).

The brilliant thing about vaping is you get a big nicotine hit out of a single puff of your pen. The initial down side to this was I was used to traditional smoking where you need to physically puff more to get an identical dose. So I did have a few nicotine minor OD’s before I sorted things out.

After finishing the two bottles I was pretty much of the opinion that I wanted to lower my nicotine dependency. I used the double-header strategy of choosing a flavour unrelated to cigarettes (Vanilla) with another two bottles and lowering the dose to a 18mg nicotine level.

I’m guessing you know where I’m going with this.

series-3-personal-vaporizerWith each 2 bottles I finished I lowered the nicotine dose and played with flavors.

It took me around 12 months to become comfortable with zero nicotine e liquids.

It wasn’t a completely linear journey. Sometimes I stayed on a higher nicotine level for a little longer.

Sometimes I cave in and have a low nicotine hit every now and again but the upside is these times are far and few between and becoming increasingly more so.

I’m not saying is this the way you should go about ridding nicotine from your life – or even that you should.

What I am saying that this is a possible method you might like to use to lower your nicotine addiction if you so choose.

If you are a smoker, you have likely heard, or have probably used electronic cigarettes, which are healthy and cooler replacements for traditional tobacco cigarettes.

Vape pens are the current refinement of electronic cigarettes.

Similar to e-cigarettes, vaporizer pens do not burn anything.

Rather, they produce a smokeless vapor of concentrate through a heating element powered by a tiny battery.

Unlike e-cigarettes, they allow you to add your own wax solutions, oils or liquid nicotine. It resembles a fountain pen in size and shape, hence the name.

Nevertheless, not all vape pens are the same. Before buying one, consider these important factors:

Long lasting batteries

Most vape pens now use lithium ion batteries, which are better and last longer.

However, a few cheap brands use older battery technology. Therefore, you want to confirm that the vaporizer uses lithium ion before purchasing.

Longer battery life allows you to get your ‘fix’ anytime, anywhere, without any worries.

Compatibility of concentrate

Perhaps one of the most essential considerations is whether you intend to vape oil, dry herbs or wax.

Some vape pens are compatible with all three concentrates and work efficiently, while other vaporizers can only handle one or two concentrates.

However, when deciding which one to use, also keep in mind that e-juice or oil is the most widely accessible concentrate for vaping.

If you use the wrong concentrate on your vape pen, you will damage it and/or have a very unpleasant vaping experience.

For instance, dry herbs begin to vaporize at 360 F, which is a very low temperature compared to that of wax or oil. If you put dry herbs in an oil or wax vaping pen, they will combust and release toxic smoke rather than clean vapor.

Your budget

Of course, you should decide how much you want to spend on your vape pen. The less you are willing to spend, the more limited your ideal options.

Like purchasing other things, you generally get what you pay for. If you want quality and durability, you should be willing to spend upwards of $100.

Cheap, low quality vape pens are notorious for burning the concentrate, heating up very slow, and breaking down just when you need them the most.

If you intend to spend less than $100 on your vaporizer, you should consider saving up for a better unit.

Aesthetics and other features

As aforementioned, all vape pens are tube-shaped like fountain pens. Nevertheless, many brands add various features to distinguish themselves from the rest.

For instance, some are smaller in length than others, which come in handy if you are looking for easy portability and discretion.

Other models may have a low restriction on each draw, which is a useful feature for people with a certain medical condition.

Authenticity is also very important. The internet is full of cheap imitations and counterfeits that do not meet half the quality standards of the originals.

Avoid disappointing and substandard vaping experience.

 

Vape Pen

v2 pro series 3If you are new to the vaping experience you must have come across multiple variables of e-cigarettes in the marketplace.

By just listening to new users, it becomes obvious that the umbrella term ‘e-cigarette‘ is misleading.

Too many customers are eventually denying themselves the options they have away from ordinary cigarettes.

E-cigarettes in Brief

To get an idea of the genesis of this confusion it is imperative to get an idea on what e-cigarettes encompass.

The FDA defines an e-cigarette as any device that turns nicotine, flavorings, or other solutions into vapor which you can then inhale.

The design is much the same as that of an ordinary cigarette but that is where similarities end.

Inside the e-cig there is a system consisting of a rechargeable lithium battery, a cartridge where the nicotine solution mostly propylene glycol is placed and a heater which vaporizes the solution to be inhaled.

The inhaling action by the user activates the battery and this heats the smoking juice which is converted to vapor.

This is the vapor a user will draw in and then out but it is odorless because no nicotine is burnt. This system is what is generalized as the e-cigarette in the public debates.

Upgrading to a Vape Pen

The vape pen is a next-generation e-cigarette because it offers all the benefits of the e-cig but improves on the drawbacks.

As the name suggests the vape pen imitates the design of a fountain pen and is thus discreet option for those who do not want to scream they are smoking.

The other major difference comes in the system they heat the vapor.

While the standard e-cig creates vapor by breaking down the propylene glycol solution through battery power vape pens do this gradually using warm air. This air passes through the materials in a set temperature to vaporize the ingredients and release them into the air.

While the difference between a standard e-cigarette and a vape pen might look minimal the benefits of switching are immense.

If someone asks, why should you upgrade from a standard e-cigarette to a vape pen? Just give them these answers

Enhanced Portability

Vape pen are becoming more portable especially with smaller designs coming out of late. Users do not have to worry about them sticking from their shirt pockets in the office.

More Inexpensive

Compared to the standard e-cig, using a vape pen is comparatively more affordable.

These days, you do not have to burn a hole in your pockets, you can pick up a quality vape pen for under $100.

Sure, this is a little more expensive than a standard e-cig starter kit, but in terms of usage and materials used, they are more economic.

Firstly they are more cost-efficient because they come with refillable tanks or cartridges.

Versatility

Also, vape pens have a better battery life ranging from 650mAh to 1300mAh and even higher.

Lastly there is so much more you can do with a vape pen. Whatever your style there is a vape pen out there for you. There are so many designs available that you will be lost for choice.

You also you can choose a vape pen for alternative mediums such as dry herbs and waxy concentrates.

This is something that you cannot do with a standard e-cigarette.

While vape pens might be thicker than the ordinary e-cigarette there is no denying that they offer a user a delightful, healthy, and affordable vaping experience.

The invention of vape pens, has flooded the market with new designs meant to achieve its purpose – to allow more vapor to gather making way for bigger hits.

The newer versions of vape pens have become shorter –uses shorter tanks and batteries, smaller or what they call the minis, fatter –shaped like cigars but longer and thinner – slimmer than a stick of cigarette.

Most of these vape pen models use shatter-style or wax concentrates and only some can use oil or flowers.

The introduction of a glass globe that is attached to the battery did away with the old standard tank. Some first versions of the pen have also started to use the glass globe since most of the clients prefer to watch the vape process while smoking.

Learning how to put waxy concentrates in a vape pen is usually the question asked of the manufacturers of the pens. These same manufacturers have placed how-to-do-it video sites on the internet that could sometimes confuse rather than instruct.

The best advice usually comes from the users themselves where experience is still the best teacher.

Putting wax in a vape pen can be a bit tricky and needs a little trial and error before you finally get it right.

To start with, a small bit of wax can be sliced off using a scalpel or a blade.

Next, flatten it between your fingers so the warmth from them could make it easier to shape before finally placing them on top of the coil.

Only a small amount of wax stays on the coil when it gets heated up as the rest will drip down to the chamber. The wax helps to allow bigger hits until it gets all melted up.

The melted wax that has dripped down to the chamber can be used again. All you need to do is to scrape it off and put it back on the coil.

Making the right choice of a vape pen would not depend on the coolness of design or the latest trend either.

It has to serve the purpose for which it was bought in the first place.

Manufacturers go out of their way to make instructional videos on what these vape pens can do and at the same time show the different styles and designs.

Their websites can be visited for further information. Shopping around would be one best option before you make your final choice.

When you’ve chosen the vape pen that you feel would be right for you, please take time to read the instructions that they come with.

Proper maintenance of the vape pen would make you enjoy the product longer till the next model comes along.

Saying that, some people still use the first version of the pens as they see no reason to change it since it gets the job done.

For first time users, just remember that batteries need to be fully charged before the pen can be used. This makes for a longer battery life.

VN-300x250-3jpgHerbs and vaping have been touted by various renowned agencies as the easiest and best alternative to classic smoking.

Of course, everyone understands the harm to your your health if you engage in traditional smoking.

From lung cancer, to several other conditions which have been directly linked to old school smoking; it is readily apparent that smoking is harmful to your health.

However, not many people understand the difference between smoking and vaping, and why such differences make vaping a much healthier option. Smokers looking for an alternative, a second avenue to relieve their craving often look into herbs and vaping as a substitute to traditional smoking.

A clear majority of the chemicals involved in the process of producing the traditional cigarettes are considered carcinogenic.

In fact, many of the people looking to quit smoking or find alternatives to smoking do so for fear of their own health. Various studies, most prominent among them being those conducted by the government show that herbs and vaping is a healthier way to experience the same hit without deteriorating your own health.

There have been other studies which have compared individual’s health before and after they switched to vaping. The results indicate that they felt much healthier and more active after the switch.

Herbs and vaping are more socially accepted since they do not inconvenience people around the smoker.

Traditional smoking has been banned in many places, including offices where individuals have to find private places to smoke mainly because of the odor.

The odor is so strong that it makes people uncomfortable. It also lingers after smoking sessions, a fact that can cause individuals to be very embarrassed. We won’t even go into the dangers of secondary smoke.

On the other hand, herbs and vapor pens usually have no odor or where such odor is present its often quite pleasant. Therefore, the smokers can enjoy hits whenever they feel like because they are not inconveniencing others.

Traditional smoking can have a detrimental effect on your own social life. Individuals find that they can only interact with fellow smokers. Non-smokers find it hard to live with, engage with especially intimately with a smoker.

The odor and behavior itself puts them off.

On the other hand, herbs and vaping have been found to be more socially acceptable. In fact many people consider it quite a healthy and noble option to take.

Further, not many people can tell when you are engaged in vaping unless they are privy to this information. Therefore, it has virtually no effect on your social life.

Of course for smokers there is the overriding concern. Traditional smoking is actually considered a very costly activity. Traditional smokers even those who go through an average of one pack in a day find that supporting the habit is quite expensive.

On the other hand, vaping only requires individuals to purchase the kits themselves, which is a onetime expense.

The kits are designed to work for a very long time meaning that it will be a long time before you have to replace them.

This makes vaping much cheaper and convenient than traditional smoking. It is therefore not surprising that more and more people are turning from traditional smoking to vaping.

Vape Pen

Vaping is becoming more and more popular as vape pens are becoming readily available in the market. Marketed as an alternative to tobacco cigarette smoking, people from all around the world are enjoying its benefits, but they also have their set of drawbacks. Let’s take a look at the answers to the question from both sides, “What are vaping pros and cons?”

Vaping Pros

Our # 1 Vape Pen Kit Between $100-$200

Vaping provides freedom for those who are annoyed at not being able to smoke in public places. Currently, there are no vaping laws in most countries, allowing anyone to enjoy the act of vaping where they please.

They emit no second-hand smoke and no nasty smells – allowing anyone to use them even in social settings such as restaurants, the workplace, the streets, and most importantly, in the comforts of your own home.

It’s also considered to be a healthier alternative over tobacco cigarette smoking – the number one reason why most people use them in the first place. While tobacco contains thousands of chemicals and carcinogens that wreak havoc on your lungs, vaporizers only use water vapor, and thus, smoke is not produced at all.

Tobacco contains carbon monoxide, tar, arsenic, ammonia, cyanide, acetone, and loads and loads of harmful toxins that are just bad for you.

Vaporizers only use e-liquids or juices that are made of 4 ingredients: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine (optional), and food-grade flavors, which are much healthier than the chemicals found in tobacco.

If you’re thinking about your nicotine fix, vaping provides you the very same amount as cigarettes, with options of customization. You can choose from different nicotine levels for your e-liquids, allowing you to still get the physiological sensations you get to enjoy.

Vaping is also clean – for you and the environment. You can stop further yellowing of your teeth and fingernails, plus your clothes won’t smell like tobacco anymore. Cigarette butts are non-biodegradable, so when you throw them out, you’re adding to the world’s amount of waste that will last forever.

Vaping is also more enjoyable with the countless selections of e-liquids available. You can choose from classic flavors to the more exotic – making it a more satisfying alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

Vaping Cons

Vape pens also have their own set of drawbacks.

For one, and the most important thing to take note is that production is not regulated by the FDA. There are no current laws with regards to the materials and ingredients that must be used in making them – so it’s best to be wary about the brand of vaporizer that you purchase.

There have also been cases of users being allergic to propylene glycol – one of the ingredients of e-liquids.

Another disadvantage is that if you’re looking for an alternative to smoking that will help stop your addiction to smoking, this is not the solution for you.

Most E-liquids contain nicotine – the highly addicting substance in tobacco that makes you want to puff a stick every few minutes. Though you can choose to have liquids with zero nicotine, the odds of vaporizers helping you quit smoking overnight are very low.

Though you may save more money in the long run, initial expense may be expensive for a good quality vaporizer that will last for many years.

As you can see the pros of vaporizing seem to overwhelm the amount of negatives associated with it. It is a healthier alternative to smoking and it is a system that can lead to smoking cessation with careful planning and a strong will.

Vaporizer Pen

The popularity of vaping has been growing by the day. And just like any other fan of vaping you probably enjoy every experience. However, you might want to add some fun to the whole experience. Well, the following 10 tricks will certainly come handy:

1. Huge clouds of vapor

This trick is usually among the first to master. It doesn’t require any special skills. All you need is the ability to inhale lots of vapor and also hold it for long. Gently release or blow the vapour continuously.

2. Vape rings

Vape rings are also another simple trick. Inhale the vapor and hold it in your mouth. Form a circular shape with your mouth and release the vapor slowly. It works best with the tongue placed near the mouth opening.

 3. Vape bubbles

As kids, many of us were fond of forming bubbles. The same skill also applies when forming vape bubbles. The difference is that this time round you will be filling the bubbles with vapor. You can form a large or several small bubbles.

 4. Vaping banana

Take a banana and carve a human face on it. Mark the eyes, nose and mouth. Insert an opening that runs from the banana’s side to the mouth. When vapor is blown through the side opening it will be released through the mouth.

 5. Side rings

This trick is similar to the vape rings. The only difference lies in the direction you will be blowing the vapor from. Form a circular opening on one side of your mouth. Inhale the vapor and gently release it.

 6. Dragon

This trick portrays a smoking dragon except no fire is present. The idea is to release lots of vapor from the sides of your mouth and also through the nose. In short, you will be breathing out smoke from four points.

 7. The Ghost

Ghosts are known to appear and disappear in a cloud of smoke. The ghost inhale entails blowing out and inhaling back the exhaled smoke. Inhaling it back creates an image of a ghost being sucked back from where it came from.

 8. The Vape-nardo

The vape-nardo entails forming tornadoes on a large cloud of smoke. Inhale lots of vapor and blow it on a flat surface such as a table. Use the tip of your finger to create a swirl on the cloud of smoke. Ensure no wind or air is present.

9. The French Inhale

This trick focuses on exhaling through your mouth and inhaling the vapor through your nostrils. The two events take place concurrently. Curve your lower lips upwards and direct the vapor towards the nose. Try to inhale the all the vapor.

10. The Vapey-mouse

The Vapey-mouse consists of two small rings attached to a large one. Start by blowing a large “O” ring, as it rises, follow-through with two small “O”s. They will attach to the initial ring. It works well if you have mastered blowing circular rings.

Becoming a pro at vaping tricks takes times. It will also depend on the type of tricks. For instance, tricks such as lots of vapor or vaping banana are pretty basic and simple. However, machine gun vape rings, or big rings inside small rings require skill.

What are the health benefits that come with the use of vaporizers?

Vaporizers produce vapor in lieu of smoke. Traditional combustibles produce super-heated smoke that in some cases can comprise of nicotine, tar and a myriad of heavy metals and chemicals which are mainly carcinogenic.

The obvious danger associated with the traditional smoking method are at best underlying respiratory problems and at worst a fatal, irreversible disease or condition.

Thankfully, vaporizers don’t emit any of these toxic ingredients. Below are some of the health benefits of smoking a vaporizer.

 Vaporizers Lessens An Addictive Habit

When it comes to quitting a tobacco habit, people using a vaporizer have a comparatively easier time quitting smoking than those who use cigarettes.

A study on effectiveness of e cigs ( a very similar device to a vape pen) in smoking cessation compared to nicotine patches was conducted by Lancet showed that electronic cigarettes are less addictive and smokers can quit quickly their usage.

7.3 percent of subjects using e-cigs quitted smoking just after 6 months when compared to only 5.8 percent of those using nicotine patches.

Vaporizers Are Safer For Your Lungs

99 percent of research clearly shows that electronic cigarettes have less potential of causing respiratory problems or cancer hence they are generally less harmful than traditional smoking devices.

It is only that, there are particular device types and user usage styles which make them potentially harmful.

Some people like to increase the heat for more flavor which in turn leads to production of carcinogenic by-products making the e cigs more harmful to the respiratory system.

They Don’t Have Significant Third-Party Effects

Some say that vaporizers are more “comfortable” to use since it doesn’t affect the person someone is seated next to.

Vape pens are manufactured to produce inhalable aerosol. Upon taking a puff, the oil/wax is inhaled and taken into the lungs.

A study carried out by Jan Czogala to investigate the extent of secondhand exposure to nicotine and other toxicants from e cigs indicated that vaporizers are a source of second-hand exposure to nicotine but not to toxic substances resulting out of combustion.

The air concentrations released by an e cig was averaging 0.82 to 6.23 g/m3 while the average concentration of nicotine produced by smoking cigarettes was about 10 times higher.

The effect of second-hand exposure to vulnerable population such as the elderly, pregnant women, children and those people with health complications such as heart diseases and respiratory disorders was shown to be insignificant.

 There Seems To Be No  Long-Term Respiratory Effects

Studies have been carried out to investigate the long-term effects which come with the use of vaporizers.

It has been shown that there is no increase in mortality or development of tumors related to cancer or even the microscopic and macroscopic development of tumors.

Moreover, there is no relationship between nicotine and increase in damage of pulmonary cells. Also, users of vaporizers don’t suffer from unexplained weight loss as those who use the traditional smoking methods.

Practically, the use of vaporizers is safer by far than using age old combustible methods.

This renaissance  of vaporizers has brought on a healthy alternative for smokers. The use of vaporizers has enabled smokers to smoke without fearing the aftermath negative effects.
