What Are The Differences Between E-Cigarettes and Vaporizers?
Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are vaporizers that are powered by a battery. They create a vapor that is similar to tobacco smoke by heating an atomizer that turns a liquid solution, known as e-liquid, into a vapor. These e-liquids are composed of glycol (propylene), a glycerin made from vegetables, various flavors, and nicotine. There are also e-cigs available without nicotine. The jury is still out on the benefits and risks of using e-cigarettes, though most believe they are similar to nicotine patches and other nicotine replacement therapies.
Tobacco cigarettes contain over 4,000 chemicals such as carbon monoxide, lead, formaldehyde, tar, and nicotine. Although nicotine does not contribute to cancer, its sole purpose is to cause addiction.
Vaporizers have been around for thousands of years but have just recently taken center stage. Vapor is not in any way similar to smoke because vaporizers do not burn the material, instead they heat the material, forming a vapor. With more states looking into legal marijuana, smoking cannabis in cigarette form offers a higher risk of harmful substances than using a marijuana vaporizer. Vapes used for medical marijuana are called forced-air vaporizers and offer a detachable balloon that fills up with the vapor and is then inhaled.
Medical Use of Vaporizers:
Medicinal marijuana has shown significant aid to approximately 20% of patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, HIV, and various chronic pains. In 2010, neurology publications and other researcher believe there is no exposure to harmful chemicals created by burning when using a vaporizer. Due to this and other studies, it is believed that vaporizers are excellent devices for medical assistance.
Believe it or not, there are chefs that use dry herbal vaporizers to heat herbs and spices in order to increase the level of flavors and aromas that are lost in traditional heating. The increased flavor and aroma released from spices and herbs give customers a higher appetite and watery palate.
Future of Vapes and E-Cigs:
The stock market and investor are closely watching this industry and its changing events. Vaporin, aleader in the vaporizer and e-liquid industry, is implementing strategies used by blu e-cigs for worldwide growth. Vaporin is aligning their position in the vaporizer industry and developing diversified sales for both convenience stores and selling online.
Vape companies are, without doubt, on the rise due to the production of high-end aromas and flavors that cannot be produced through smoke. In the health department, many smokers that became disillusioned with e-cigs, are now turning their sights on vaporizers. With more tobacco and smoke shops filling shelves with both e-cigs and vaporizers, the day of the billion dollar tobacco industry might just be the beginning to end.
