E-Cigs and Vaping Devices 101

Welcome to the world of vaping. So what is that little gizmo everyone seems to be carrying around these days? If you happen to be wondering this yourself, here's some information to familiarize yourself with the basics of an electronic cigarette.

Ok, so you're new to the e-cigarette and have no idea where to start, in the following few paragraphs we’ll begin with the basics. We will routinely compare the e-cig with the traditional cigarettes you're used to in an attempt to help you better understand. BUT the e-cig is VERY different in many ways, the most important being that the e-juice used in e-cigs is 100% tobacco free! So, what is an e-cig?

An e-cig, also called an e-cigarette, electronic cigarette, or a personal vaporizer is a small battery powered device that vaporizes the e-juice liquid, usually by either simply inhaling or by pressing a button. It contains a battery and an internal heating element for vaporizing the e-juice liquid.

 

What's the difference between smoking and vaping?

Smoking is essentially the inhaling of the smoke created when you burn the ingredients of a cigarette whereas vaping is the process of inhaling the vapors created by an electronic cigarette as it heats the e-liquid until it transforms to vapor. The key difference between smoking and vaping is the burning part, also known as combustion. When you smoke a cigarette, the result is the burning of thousands of different ingredients, many of which we have never heard of and a list so extensive it would consume an entire page. Unlike smoking, using an e-cig—most commonly known as vaping—with the vape liquid is safer because far fewer ingredients are used to manufacture e-liquid.

Vaping is made possible by the battery contained in every e-cig. This battery is used to heat a small coil until the vape liquid reaches boiling point and turns into vapor. The e-liquid, or e-juice, used in the e-cig does not create smoke, only vapor which has no by-products like ash or cigarette butts. E-cigs are also usually highly appreciated by anyone nearby because there is no cigarette smell.



Electronic Cigarettes, E-Cigs, Vape Mods?

These are all common names for the same device. An electronic cigarette, e-cig, or vapor cigarette are all common names for a battery-powered device which closely simulates that of smoking a tobacco cigarette. In its most basic form, the electronic cigarette vaporizes the specially formulated vape liquid solution, creating the familiar smoking sensation. The electronic cigarette was primarily designed to be an alternative nicotine delivery device in which many flavors can be incorporated into the liquid to create a pleasant taste but do away with harmful tobacco inhalation. Many vapor cigarettes are constructed to resemble similar smoking products like cigars, cigarettes, and pipes featuring the cylinder shape appearance. So first things first, you will want to choose your e-cig and you're probably wondering which one is best for you.

 

One of the most popular, reliable, and cost effective e-cigs on the market would be the eGo style e-cigs. This particular brand of e-cigs is easy to use and widely available; chances are, if you know someone who currently uses an e-cig and ask them about the eGo brand, they will know exactly what you're talking about.

 

 

 

EVERYTHING ABOUT EJUICE AND ELIQUIDS

E-Juice and E-Liquid

The e-juice is best described as the liquid you would use to refill your e-cig. E-juice, also referred to as e-liquid, comes in many different bottle sizes, flavors, and nicotine strengths.

E-liquid, e-juice, and vape juice are all common terms referring to the liquids vaporized in an e-cig. Composed of only 3 to 4 ingredients, E-Liquid contains Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol (often abbreviated PG/VG), flavor, and usually nicotine—which is optional for customers. Vegetable Glycerin along with Propylene Glycol makes up the majority of the e-juice liquid. Both of these ingredients are food grade products used in various types of foods, including some toothpastes and candy flavors, and are commonly available in the market for baking or making candy. The optional nicotine used is pure pharmaceutical grade quality liquid nicotine and makes up no more than about 2.5% of the total contents in the e-liquid.

When you make your first purchase of e-juice, it’s best to pick a relatively small bottle size, just in case you end up not enjoying the flavor as much as you originally thought. The next choice you will need to make is how much nicotine you prefer in your e-liquid. E-liquid is available in multiple different nicotine strengths, and the strengths are very similar to the multiple strengths of tobacco cigarettes:

(18-24 mg)  
(12 mg)   
(0-6 mg)              

So, to put it all together, if your favorite flavor is blueberry and you usually smoke a medium amount of cigarettes, you might want to consider placing an order similar to the what you see below.


Flavor-           Blueberry
Bottle Size-     10ml
Nicotine-            12mg

What is the ratio of PG to VG in your juices and what kind of PG, VG and nicotine do you use?

Our standard ratio is 50% PG to 50% VG; however variations of this ratio are available. We use this ratio because it provides the ideal consistency and produces the ideal amount of vapor. We use only 100% natural kosher Vegetable Glycerin together with USP Propylene Glycol which is 99% pure and made in the USA. The liquid nicotine we use comes from flue-cured leaves which have been grown and handpicked. All the flavors we use in our e-juice also come from U.S. suppliers. We don't water down our products and NEVER use any other additives.

 



Do you offer nicotine free e-Juice?

Absolutely, there are many e-juice users who prefer the nicotine free e-juice, and if you order our e-juice this way, it comes free of nicotine.

 


What nicotine strengths do you offer? Are you planning on adding more strengths?

We offer the following strengths: 0 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg, and 24 mg nicotine. If you would prefer a different strength, please contact us, and we will do our best to make every accommodation for special requests!  Or, try blending your own e-juice flavors with our DIY vape juice mixing supplies!

 



Why has my e-juice changed color?

Over time, e-juice changes color from a process called steeping. Steeping occurs as the ingredients blend together more evenly throughout the e-juice. Technically the e-juice doesn't change colors, the original color simply becomes darker. If you store your vape juice in a dark place, the color change occurs at a slower rate. In many cases, the full effect of your e-juice only comes out after the steeping process begins! So, you ask, how long is the steeping process? Well, many people have different opinions but in our own experience the flavors in the vape juices become more savory and delicious in as little as a few days!

 



Is there a shelf-life for the e-juice?

Our e-juices are good for at least 12 to 24 months if stored properly. You can even refrigerate your e-juice to make it last even longer!  We actually have our very first bottle of e-juice and it still tastes as good as or better than day we made it!

 

 


I have a great idea for a new flavor, can you make it for me?

Yes! We welcome your new vape flavor ideas and/or combinations! Also, if you see we don't have your favorite e-juice flavor, let us know and we will make every attempt to make it available for you. Send us an email with your general idea and someone will get back with you as soon as possible. Remember, we are here because of YOU and your opinions are very important to us.

 


How do I know what strength of e-juice to buy?

 

For the beginners to e-juice, it's best to start in the middle if you're not sure, because you can always move up or down accordingly. If your choose an e-juice with a nicotine concentration higher than what you're used to, you may experience headaches and/or dizziness. If you experience headaches, dizziness, or any discomfort whatsoever, please discontinue use immediately! If you choose a nicotine concentration that is less than what you're used to, you may find that you aren't satisfied, and continually are wanting more. The above suggestions are merely just that; your doctor's advice or directions should be followed above any suggestions or advice offered from Central Vapors.

 


Is e-juice FDA approved?

The FDA has tested some electronic cigarette cartridges and released highly controversial results. Electronic cigarettes and e-juice are NOT "FDA approved." However, excluding the liquid nicotine, all the ingredients in our e-juices have all been approved and deemed "safe for human consumption" by the FDA. The bottom line is that e-juice vapor does not contain many of the chemicals found in the smoke produced from smoking a cigarette. No long term studies have been conducted in the United States on the use of e-juice, but at this time, no instances of death or extreme sickness have been have been clinically linked to the use of electronic cigarettes.

 




How much e-juice will I use?

This answer will be different for everyone, in general, the average person who smokes one pack a day will use about one 10ml bottle per week.
