What Are E Liquids?

E liquids are a key part of vaping. They deliver nicotine in a healthier form than traditional cigarettes without the deadly tar and carbon monoxide. E liquids, also known as e-cig liquids or vapor liquids, contain a solution of water, nicotine (optional), flavourings and either a propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin base. When used with a vaping device, they produce a vapor that is inhaled.

The e-liquids are mixed with a range of flavourings and nicotine strengths. They are then filled into a tank and attached to a battery, which heats the e liquid into a vapor that you inhale.

Diving into Ecig Liquids: A Beginner’s Guide

Nicotine is a chemical that is extracted from tobacco leaves or rendered synthetically in laboratories and is addictive when consumed in high concentrations. It is a psychoactive substance that is both physically and psychologically addictive. It is also a known carcinogen.

Flavoring ingredients increase e-cigarette attractiveness and use, especially by young non-smokers, and can lead to increased exposure to potentially toxic e-liquid constituents. Chemical analysis can be used to identify these components and their concentrations, providing a basis for regulatory approaches aimed at decreasing attractiveness and use and increasing safety for young non-smokers and other users.

It is important to keep e liquids out of reach of children. Even though the vapor from e liquids is not harmful, small children are curious and can get into things they shouldn’t. Keep any bottles of e liquids out of sight and out of reach from children and pets and make sure that they are stored in a cool dry place away from sunlight.
