Vape, in simple words, is an e-cigarette. We all know what a cigarette is, shredded tobacco filled in a paper tube with a filter on one end. The cigarette is lit on one end and inhaled, but what does a vape user inhale? Vape is electronic cigarettes produced as a healthy alternative of cigarettes. Their purpose is provide a saver solution compare to cigarette.

How Does Vape Work?

Cigarettes operate by burning tobacco. Nicotine, as well as over 4,000 chemicals, including toxic fusion of chemicals such as tar and other chemicals, can be transmitted by inhaling the resulting smoke. On the contrary, electronic cigarettes, also known as vaping products, don’t consist of tobacco and do not require combustion, resulting in no smoke. E-cigarette products are typically filled with a liquid that contains nicotine frequently, but not always. The liquid is converted into a vapor by a small heater inside the system and then inhaled through the mouthpiece. No fire, hence no smoke.

A vape operates as a complete system. Although frequent users shop a la carte for customizing the components, beginners are encouraged to stick to pre-packaged packages with everything included to ensure reliability.

Vaping gained popularity with the advent of e-cigarettes introduced to the US mass market in 2007. Vaping tools not only include e-cigarettes but also vapor pens and specialized personal vaporizers (also known as 'MODS'). E-cigarettes, resembling smoked cigarettes, and vape pens, resembling large fountain pens, are usually simpler, and less costly than user-customized products.

JUUL, a lightweight, sleek device resembling a computer USB flash drive, is the newest and most common vaping product. Its minimalistic design makes hiding simple, which helps explain why it has become so common among students in middle and high schools. It now amounts to almost 72 percent of the United States' market share of vaping goods. This comes in many tempting flavors, such as crème brûlée, raspberry, mango, and a medley of fruit. Each product in JUUL contains a high dose of nicotine, with one pod or flavor cartridge containing around the same amount of nicotine as a whole pack of cigarettes.

The decision to begin vaping is a personal decision, mostly to battle a tobacco addiction. Vapes are not healthy goods or quit smoking products, but they have helped many people to have a smoke and tobacco-free life. Vaping has benefits and drawbacks, but vaping is considered "a dangerous reduction" or “harm reduction” alternative to smoking.
