What is Vaping?

Vaping is the process of inhaling vapour through an e-cigarette. The vapour is produced from an e-liquid, concentrate or dry herb.

Why should I Vape?

If you’re a smoker, vaping can be a great quit smoking tool.  With its recent rise in popularity, vaping has become a go-to alternative to smoking and has helped many people kick the habit!

Vaping mimics the process of smoking and provides a similar sensation of inhaling smoke. Therefore, for many smokers, this makes it easier to stop smoking in comparison with other traditional quit smoking methods such as patches or gum.

So if you want to start your quit smoking journey with vaping, you can find everything you need to get started in one of our quit smoking packs. You can find them here.

What is a vape and how does it work?

A vape (vaporizer) usually consists of a battery, tank (main console) and an atomizer. The atomizer has a mouthpiece connected to it which is used to inhale the vapour. E-liquid, commonly referred to as “juice” is poured into the atomizer where the battery generates the power for the heating element in the atomizer, which contacts the vaping material and transforms it into vapour for inhalation.

What is E-liquid?

E-liquid is the primary material used in vaporizers. It consists of PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerin) base and flavourings. There is a variety of e-liquids available on the market, and you can find flavours ranging from fruity ones to ones that imitate actual tobacco. You can see more flavours of e-liquids here.

What about nicotine?

Many people choose to add nicotine to their e-liquids whilst vaping as they find it can make their quit smoking journey easier. However, many also choose to not use nicotine.

It is illegal to sell any liquids containing nicotine in Australia. Therefore, if you want to use nicotine in your e-liquids you will have to source your nicotine from overseas. All E-liquids sold at Vaped are nicotine free.
