An Introduction to Electronic Vapors
E-liquid is a flavored fluid substance used in electronic cigarettes. It is actually the vapor that is exhaled that resembles smoke from existing traditional cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are machine used to vaporize e-liquids, emitting smoke like ordinary cigarettes only that they use batteries to power them ‘Vaping’ is the terminology used to describe the use of an electronic cigarette.
E-liquids come in different tastes according to the companies that manufacture them. They use different base ingredients that end up creating smooth flavors. The base ingredients used in the manufacture of e-liquids consist of Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG) or both.
In the food industry, propylene Glycol is used to generate different colors and flavors to different foods. It is also used in the medical field where it acts as a flavored additive to medicines that contain bitter tastes. Vegetable Glycerin on the other hand is derived from known vegetable types and comes in sweet tastes.
Vegetable Glycerin cannot be used alone in an electronic cigarette since it would pose difficulties in smoking due to its thick nature. Most manufacturing companies therefore use a blend of both Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin in equal proportions in order to produce desired effects. Researchers have found out that there are no toxins in both Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin.
There are also other e-liquids called regular e-liquids that differ from Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin. These are cheaper e-liquids as compared to the ones manufactured using Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin. It is however not recommended to use regular e-liquids since they contain chemicals known to harm the body of human beings. Acetoin and Diacetyl are examples of these harmful chemicals contained in regular e-liquids.
Among the companies that are known for producing e-liquids is the Cosmic Fog Vapor Company that manufactures e-liquids by the brand name of Cosmic Fog e-liquid. The company is experienced in the culinary industry that is why it generates Cosmic Fog e-liquids in different food flavors. There are different types of Cosmic Fog e-liquids which include: Sonrise, Sonset, Kryptonite and Euphoria brands.
The use of e-liquids in electronic cigarettes has several advantages. First of all, it helps to break away from addiction of traditional smoking of tobacco cigarettes. Secondly, electronic cigarettes have been known to be used for recreation, something that experts claim helps in stress management.
There are also disadvantages of using e-liquids in electronic cigarettes. Addiction has been cited as one of the disadvantages of using electronic cigarettes because e-liquids contain some portions of nicotine. Low levels of nicotine in electronic cigarettes make them safer to use that smoking tobacco cigarettes.
It is however good to note that research on these advantages and disadvantages of electronic cigarettes has been inconclusive.
