In The Beginning
Vaping will be known as one of the greatest 21st century success stories. It is responsible for disrupting one of the major recreations and changing the practice of smoking and control of the big tobacco companies and how they deal with the world.
Modern e-cigarettes are commonly believed to have been invented by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in 2003. The vaping industry started really started to emerge in the United Kingdom from 2007 onwards with the introduction of the smoking ban which prohibited smoking in almost all enclosed public spaces. From then on, the rest is history.
The small and medium entrepreneurial businesses out there latched onto the wave and drove it into the major business it has become today. Due to their investiture and attention, vaping has become one of the fastest growing businesses in the world.
Tobacco and pharmaceutical companies have also entered the market in the last five years, a period in which the sales of vaping products have exploded. This can only be due to the incredible successes with people stopping smoking have had during that time.
The rise of vaping is directly reflected in the continuous innovation in the marketplace which is responding to the ever evolving consumer demand. This can be seen from the first generation cigalikes, designed to appeal to smokers, to third generation mods which enable vapers to self assemble with a diverse range of flavoured e-liquid, tanks and atomisers. Medusa Juice is home to a huge selection of mods, tanks and other vape related equipment, so be sure to stop in and get your groove on for less.
Vape success can also seen through the increase in sales from online wholesaling and early retailing through to products making their way into the retail convenience and multiples sector, and more recently the emergence of specialist vape stores as a result of the growing catalogue of product types.
In the first ten years of the industry, we’ve seen mounting evidence published by a number of respected and high profile organisations which show that vaping is safer than smoking and is helping a hugely significant number of smokers to finally quit.
You know that something is working when even governments are realising the potential of vaping versus smoking. In the recent Tobacco Control Plan, the United Kingdom Government acknowledged the significant role that vaping has plays in helping so many smokers to quit. The have also committed to a review of the current regulatory framework as well as the inclusion of messages about the relative safety of electronic cigarettes in Public Health England’s quit smoking campaigns. The Food & Drug Administration, a federal agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, has also committed to a review of the way in which low risk products such as e-cigs are regulated so that smokers are able to switch to safer alternatives, signalling a softer stance on the vaping industry.
A Guide To Vaping
Electronic cigarettes are also commonly referred to e-cigarettes, e-cigs, electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) or electronic non-nicotine delivery systems (ENNDS). E-liquids or juices are the flavoured solutions which are found inside the e-cigarette.
The way it works is that the device heats a liquid to generate a vapour, hence the phrase is vaping. The e-liquid is generally made of nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerine, and flavourings. Although not all e-liquids contain nicotine. Which decreases the safety concern even further.
There are several key components of a vaping device. These are a mouthpiece, a cartridge, or tank, a heating element/atomizer, a microprocessor, a battery, and possibly an LED light on the end. Third generation mods contain no electronics. The atomizer comprises a small heating element, or coil, that vaporizes the liquid and draws liquid onto the coil. When the user pushes a button, or as in some variations, activates a pressure sensor by inhaling. This causes the heating element to atomize the liquid solution. The e-liquid reaches a temperature of roughly 100-250 °C within a chamber to create an aerosolized vapour, which is inhaled by the vaper.
