Ever wondered what's in the vapour - lets find out?

I often get asked a question that is posed somewhat like this: “So, E cig second hand smoke, what’s in that exactly?”  The truth is is not really anything more than water vapour and the scent of whatever flavour is loaded in the ecig.  Here is a bit more on the subject.

The electronic cigarette contains only a small amount of liquid mixed with a solvent like propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin (both used in food we eat), when the user inhales with the electronic cigarette, the e cigarette vaporizes the liquid and the user inhales this vapour to get the feeling of smoking. In this process the user consumes most, if not all, of the nicotine in the vapour and then it exhales the vapour that looks like smoke.  In fact, it looks nearly exactly like smoke. There are lots of tests and on going tests readily available and all are found to be harmless unless heated at 5000 degrees plus. But these tests are squashed and hidden by the powers that be - I wonder why?

Since this exhaled vapour contains only water vapour it’s widely considered fine for the people around the ecig user.  Some new studies suggest there may be nicotine in the vapour as well but, so far, it’s very inconclusive.  Keep in mind that’s if you’re even smoking (vaping) an e liquid that has nicotine in it.  Most brands offer a 0 mg e liquid variety, that are nicotine free. We offer a ‘0’ nicotine option to our mixes too!

Also, this mist like water vapour, dissolves in atmosphere in few seconds. So it doesn’t linger very long and most people do not even realize you’re smoking (vaping) an ecig.

So What’s In E Liquid Anyway?

Most brands contain:

Nicotine: Unless you select 0 mg, which then it contains none.

PG: Propylene Glycol – This is an additive used in foods we eat.  Deemed safe for consumption by the FDA.

VG: Vegetable Glycerin – Another additive used in foods we eat.  Deemed safe for consumption by the FDA.

Food Flavourings: We use these in foods and sweets daily.  Deemed safe for consumption by the FDA. Brands like Bestcigliquid use Kosher food flavourings that are a step above food grade as well.

So, in conclusion we can say that when you exhale the smoke after smoking with electronic cigarette, then you do not exhale any smoke from your mouth but you release only water vapor that looks like smoke. Until more conclusive studies add more to this, it’s hard to say that anything else is released in the air.

Even if e cig second hand smoke were to contain some nicotine, my final thought is what is released in regular cigarette second hand smoke? Think for yourself, is it better or worse than what is released in an ecig?  I’ll let you do your own research and decide for yourself, I have my opinion, drawn from my own conclusions.  I’m not implying anything, do your own research and see what you find.
