I've started smoking dirty cigarettes again. Now I'm trying to quit.
I got an early birthday present, my boyfriend bought me a really nice vaporizer. I absolutely love it, it's called a Smok - Alien and it works really good. I would say it's one of the best vapes I've ever had and it was only $100. It takes two batteries and you push down on one... Continue Reading →
Last week was the first week I have ever tried to lower the amount of nicotine I use in my vaporizer. When choosing a flavor of e-juice, you can pick from a variety of different levels of nicotine. Heavy cigarette smokers will often start out with 24 milligrams of nicotine in their e-juice, which is the... Continue Reading →
I am now using a 3mg nicotine strength in my vaporizer as opposed to the 6 mg I was using previously. I have lowered the amount of nicotine I am using to hopefully get off the addictive factor of the e-juice. It will be easier to quit completely if I am on a lower amount... Continue Reading →
Ever since my nice, expensive, $175 box mod vape exploded, I have noticed that I have been vaping less and less. I don't know why I have started vaping less and less but I think it might have to do with the fact that I am just not getting the same hit as I was... Continue Reading →
I feel so much more comfortable smoking my vape in social and public situations because I feel like the vape produces a less threatening and harmful aroma than a cigarette. Plus most of my friends vape as opposed to smoke so I feel much more comfortable vaping in a crowd of vapers than being a... Continue Reading →
So scary and I never thought it would happen to me. I had an inkling when I put batteries in it and it got overheated in the past that one day this vaporizer might turn on me and explode in my face. I think because today the batteries I put into it were old that... Continue Reading →
Vaping obviously can help people to quit smoking. And through many studies have shown vaping to be far less harmful to your body than cigarettes. It has not been proven to be completely harmless. There is a scary thing called "popcorn" lung which is something that a bunch of factory workers caught while working with... Continue Reading →
Many people start out with a small pen-like aparati which is considered an electronic cigarette but doesn't have the same satisfaction as when pulling off of a drag of a cigarette. By these I mean the disposable kind that are sold in plastic wrap in gas stations and convenience stores. The puff isn't the same... Continue Reading →

Jahan Marcu, PhD, reports on the hidden dangers of propylene glycol and vape pens that smolder.
Portable electronic devices, known as “vape pens,” are increasingly popular among medical marijuana patients and others because they provide a convenient, discreet, and presumably benign way to administer cannabis. But how safe are vape pens and the liquid solutions inside the cartridges that attach to these devices? Who knows what’s actually being inhaled?
It’s generally assumed that vaping is a healthier method of administration than inhaling marijuana smoke, which contains noxious substances that may irritate the lungs. Since a vaporizer heats the cannabis flower or oil concentrate without burning it, the active ingredients are inhaled but no smoke is involved. At least that’s how it’s supposed to work.
But there may be a hidden downside to vape pens, which are manufactured (typically in China), marketed, and utilized without regulatory controls. Available…
