What is E-Liquid?



What is it made of? Is it healthy? Can it really help a person to quit smoking cigarettes? Many people have the same questions you might. E-Liquid is typically comprised of three main ingredients: vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, and flavor. Nicotine is also often added to e-liquid, but some people just really enjoy the flavor and strictly vape 0mg nicotine although it can come in various strengths – typically in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, and 12mg. E-Liquid comes in many flavors, in fact, it can be any flavor almost imaginable but as I’m sure you can imagine not all flavors are something you’d want to taste. Lol. Some companies though have certainly mastered the process of creating flavors that taste exactly like what they were trying to replicate, originally, this meant tobacco or menthol flavoring, but soon after its introduction people realized that their e-liquid could taste like whatever they wanted it too, such as apples or French toast or even your favorite cereal and many people have come to prefer these custom flavors over that of a traditional cigarette and find it much easier to make the transition when it’s a flavor that they know they truly do enjoy, like peaches or ice cream.

What is a vape? Good question. A vape is, simply, the device you put your e-liquid into that turns the e-liquid into a breathable vapor. Known by many names, the vape comes in many forms and is often referred to as a mod. Ranging from being as slim as a pencil to as thick as a brick. We could talk about the different kinds of mods and which would be best to suit your needs all day long, everyone has a preference, in fact, if you’re ever in Wasilla, Alaska feel more than welcome to stop by Alaskan Sweet Vapes, or give us a call at 907-373-2839, and pick our brain (one collective brain, all powerful).

Is vaping truly healthier than cigarettes? Yes. There have been many studies on the potential side effects of vaping. Those results are widely available and a quick google search can bring you directly to the mass majority of those results. In 2015, Public Health England stated that e-cigarettes are estimated to be 95% less harmful than smoking. Can it help you to quit cigarettes? Yes. More and more people are finding it easier to make the transition daily, largely due to the vast improvements in both flavor and the convenience that the vape industry has come to provide.
