If you are thinking about switching from cigarettes to eCigarettes, you may be wondering about the difference between inhaling tobacco smoke and breathing in vaporized propylene glycol, an organic compound that is often used as a nicotine and flavor carrier in eCigarette cartridges, which contain a mixture of water, flavoring, nicotine if desired, and a base: propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin.
The Preferred eLiquid Base
Because propylene glycol is thinner in consistency and absorbed more easily by the cartomizer of an eCigarette than vegetable glycerin, many vapers consider it the ideal base for nicotine and flavor delivery. Unlike tobacco smoke, which contains particulate matter, tar, and hundreds of chemicals, propylene glycol is a single chemical that comes from a reaction of propylene oxide with water.
Chronic inhalation of tobacco smoke is linked with hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cancer, but propylene glycol is not associated with health risks and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. Based on extensive scientific research, the compound is safe for human consumption.
Even so, when propylene glycol is vaporized along with the other substances in an eCigarette cartridge, it delivers a sensation that feels remarkably like inhaling smoke from a real cigarette. In addition to the optional nicotine content of eCigarette cartridges, this is one of the main reasons why many smokers successfully transition from real cigarettes to eCigarettes without much difficulty.
Getting 100% Propylene Glycol
The eCigarette cartridges you buy from AmericaneLiquidStore contain 100% propylene glycol. We sell 100% propylene glycol to vapers who enjoy mixing their own eCigarette cartridges. If mixing your own cartridges sounds appealing, you can find everything that you need to do the job right—mixing bottles, an injector syringe, and eLiquids—when you visit our online store.
Remember, when you purchase 100% propylene glycol, it means that you are buying a container of nothing but the organic compound, which is used for flavor and nicotine delivery when it is vaporized. To give your eCigarette cartridges the taste and level of nicotine delivery that you desire, you will also need to purchase additional eLiquid (we offer 41 unique eLiquid flavors) from our online store.
As an added bonus, your hair, clothes, and skin stop smelling like a used ashtray.
