What Is Vaping And How Does It Work?

You might have heard the term vaping as an alternative to smoking, but aren’t sure exactly what it is and how it works. A vaping device is a battery-powered gadget that smokers can use to inhale an aerosol vapour derived from the smoking herb of their choice (typically tobacco, but there are other options), that contains the herb’s active chemicals as well as optional added flavourings. The inhaled contents of vaping are much less harmful than smoking as well as being more cost-effective and cleaner since they leave no ash or smoke smell.

Vapes come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Some portable vapes resemble regular smoking implements like pipes, cigars, and cigarettes, while others look like pens, USB sticks, or other common items. There are also larger units like the dry herb vape which are for home use and can provide even better results than smaller devices.

So, how do vapes actually work? Most vaping devices are assembled from four different components that include:

  • A cartridge, reservoir, or pod to hold the liquid solution that contains the active herb ingredients and flavourings. Dry herb vapes allow you to simply insert the herb itself.
  • The heating element, also called an atomizer that excites and releases the active ingredients by heating them into a vapour.
  • A power source, usually a battery, although some portable units are rechargeable, and larger home units can be directly plugged into the house current.
  • A mouthpiece for inhaling the vapour.

There are a huge number of vape flavourings available to suit any person’s tastes. The following are a list of some of the most popular, just to give you an idea!

  • Coffee
  • Hazelnut
  • Strawberry
  • Chocolate
  • Mint
  • Watermelon
  • Lime
  • Butterscotch
  • Mango
  • Blueberry
  • Popcorn
  • Vanilla

-And that’s just scratching the surface! 

Vaping has a number of advantages over traditional smoking, so let’s examine some of them now:

Location – It’s possible for you to use your vape in indoor locations where smoking would be strictly forbidden, like on public transport, in restaurants, pubs, shops, and other public places. If you dread stepping outside in the cold to grab a smoke, then just sit right where you are and enjoy a nice, clean vape! Vapes don’t create any smoke or smell so you won’t be bothering others.

No Second Hand Smoke – There are a lot fewer ingredients in a vape mixture than there are in traditional smoking herbs so they burn cleanly as they are atomized with no noxious residues that can inflict harm on your body or on other nearby people. Most liquid vapes consist of only four ingredients, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, an active herbal extraction such as nicotine, and the flavourings, all of which are quite safe to use. Compare that to tobacco cigarettes which contain over 5000 different chemicals when inhaled, many of them hazardous to your health!

Convenience – There is no need to fuss around with matches and lighters, or packs of cigarettes or bags of herb, vape supplies are designed to be used on the go!

Give vaping a try, it’s a great way to enjoy your herb!
