Frequently Asked Questions
How do E-Cigarettes work?
What kind of benefits can be realized by using E-Cigs?
The basic components of an e-cig are the tank, which holds the juice, the atomizer, which heats the juice, and the battery that provides the power for the atomizer. The atomizer heats the juice producing a vapor that is inhaled instead of the smoke from burning materials as in a regular cigarette.
Is Vaping really healthier than smoking?
There are many benefits to vaping over smoking normal cigarettes the first and primary of which is that you are not inhaling the smoke of burning materials such as plants, stems and paper. This means that instead of inhaling somewhere around 4000 different chemical compounds (like being in a burning house for example) you are inhaling an atomized vapor of a liquid with no tar, carbon monoxide and all the other KNOWN cancer causing by products. Plus there is no second-hand smoke, no nasty cigarette smell, its cheaper, your resting heart rate will improve, you blood pressure will improve and your sense of taste and smell will return. And, there are no ashes, ashtrays, cigarette butts and so on. The health benefits alone should be enough to convince you.
Are E-Cigs considered a Smoking-Cessation product?
Smoking cigarettes produces around 4000 harmful chemical substances many of which are known to cause cancer, heart disease, stroke and many other physical ailements. Vaping does not contain these chemicals and further, contains no other chemicals known to cause cancer or other diseases. Vape juice, the liquid that gets atomized into vapor and inhaled, contains USP-Grade Propylene Glycol (PG) which is also found in asthma inhalers, Vegetable Glycerin (VG) which is an ingredient in many food products, food grade flavors, and if you choose, 99.9% pharmceutical grade nicotine. However, nicotine is not required so if you just want to enjoy vaping but you don't have a nicotine requirement this is easily omitted.
What about the costs?
Not currently or officially, however, we here at VapeQueen have succesfully quit smoking through vaping and many of our customers have also, and this AFTER using many approved, smoking-cessation products such as patches and gums that did not work for us. Now we enjoy the health benefits of a tobacco free life. The FDA is currently continuing studies on vaping but many doctors will also tell you that it is much preferable to smoking.
Can I step down the nicotine over time?
On average the cost of vaping is around one half to one quarter the cost of smoking cigarettes. This depends on how high-end your equipment choices are but for most people you see signifcant cost savings, and we mean SIGNIFICANT. Once your setup with the equipment of your choice, you are simply paying for juice, atomizers, and the occasional battery. Much cheaper than cigarettes. Come in or call and we can break it all down for you.
How do I get started?
YES! One benefit of vaping is that you can gradually reduce the amount of nicotine in your juice until you are nicotine free. You can step down in very small steps, steps that work for you, not predetermined steps that leave you hanging like patches and gums. We work with you to start you with a good working level of nicotine and if you choose, we can help you step down over time. This is a huge benefit to vaping if you want to be nicotine free.
