Nicotine Consumption – Vaping Versus Other Smokeless Products

There’s no denying that the addictive substance of Nicotine has been, and continues to be, a strong attraction for people. From the past of tobacco chewing and cigarettes, to now smokeless devices such as Vaping E-cigarettes or lozenges, nicotine consumption has evolved throughout the years. The immediate effects of calming the nervous system, activating ‘happy’ brain chemicals and the very ritual and habit of the consumption experience, all add to the popularity of consuming nicotine, despite the many risks associated with the mode of consumption (such as cigarette smoking).

 

This is why smokeless devices are growing in desirability for nicotine users, as a way to get the hit without running the adverse risk that smoking brings. There are differences in the absorption of nicotine into the body with the varied forms of smokeless tobaccos consumption. Studies have been conducted into the efficiency and levels of nicotine that the body takes in. For tobacco consumption without the smoke, nicotine is absorbed into the mouth. The levels and rate of absorption depend on the direct mode of consumption, such as chewing, swirling or sucking. In comparison to smoking, which gives a spike of nicotine levels within seconds, smokeless products and devices absorb nicotine at a much slower place, which also means that the come down from the nicotine ‘high’ is also a more gradual occurrence. This can be a positive thing for those consuming nicotine from smokeless products, such as vaping.

 

Vaping can be great for people who are switching to vaping in order to quit smoking, and perhaps looking to quit nicotine for good. Trying to taper down nicotine through vaping is effective in reducing the body’s dependence and addiction to nicotine. The different levels of e-juice make it much more effective than attempting to taper down from smoking. In conclusion, the consumption of nicotine continues to evolve, offering people more alternatives for less health – adverse effects. Choose a non-smoking nicotine option if you’re looking for a healthier alternative.

Medical Group With Financial Ties To Big Pharma Accused Of Lying About E-Cigarettes:

ATS’s claim is extremely controversial as there is no evidence suggesting e-cigarettes are as hazardous as regular cigarettes, and an independent study by Public Health England in 2015 concluded e-cigs are 95 percent safer than tobacco and could be a “game-changer” for getting people to quit smoking.

SFATA ISSUES STATEMENT ON FDA’S FINAL DEEMING RULE – SFATA | Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association

SFATA ISSUES STATEMENT ON FDA’S FINAL DEEMING RULE – SFATA | Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association:

“Since a growing body of scientific evidence confirm that vapor products are more than 95 percent less harmful than combustible cigarettes, it is essential that Congressional action be taken so vapor products can remain on the market as highly effective replacement tools for smokers. The only viable option at this time is to change the predicate with federal legislation, such as H.R. 2058 (aka Cole Bill), as well as a recent bi-partisan amendment introduced by U.S. Representatives Tom Cole (R-OK) and Sanford Bishop (D-GA) that recently passed the House Appropriations Committee, so that a more reasonable substantial equivalency pathway to market is created.”

FDA-funded study concludes e-cigs may not be so bad after all: Read this whole article about an FDA funded study.  I hate to use the term “I told you so”  but oh man… I freaking told you so! 

David T. Levy, PhD, a professor in the department of oncology at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington, D.C.  has a great quote in this article 

“We believe that the discussion to date has been slanted against e-cigarettes, which is unfortunate, because the big picture tells us that these products appear to be used mostly by people who aready are or who are likely to become cigarette smokers,”

DeKalb County city wants to ban e-cigarettes, decriminalize…: Just some more backward ass proposals from a mayor that doesn’t know anything outside of what his advisers are telling him.  The Atlanta mayor brings up 

“popcorn lung,” among other things. Yet, wants to decriminalize marijuana?  don’t get me wrong, I think that’s a great idea, but decriminalizing weed, and going after vaping ( indoors including vape shops ) makes no sense to me.

Boreas RTA Review

Well today were going to be talking about the Boreas tank from Augvape. Please don’t ask me how either of those words are pronounced.  The Boreas is a 25mm RTA that is , at it’s core,  a newer version of the infamous Aromamizer ( which I still think is overrated ) It’s not a bad vape honestly, but the flavor is severley lacking.  Read the full review ( and more pictures ) by clicking through

The Boreas has a “velocity style” deck on the inside with holes in the bottom of the deck to allow for juice flow to the wicks 

Grub ( or set ) screws lock down your leads and the post holes are nicely sized to fit a wide variety of builds.  The most effective build I found was a 13 wrap, 22g Nichrome ( anarchist ) around a 3mm post.  Too little wick inside the deck will turn this thing into a leak machine.  Hence the reason I chose to do a 3mm coil so I could pack the coils and the deck with a healthy amount of cotton
