The vaping industry has seen an exponential growth over the past three years or so. Despite the phenomenal growth and thousands of people switching to vaping, many still have no clue. Some common questions which are asked include: Is vaping safe, what is a vaporizer, is it safer than smoking cigarettes and so on. This blog will help you know what exactly vaping is and the effects of it.
Definition of Vaping
“Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling the water vapor produced by an electric device called vaporizer (or e-cigarette).”
And if you’re wondering what is water vapor or vapor, it’s the e-liquid in gaseous form that is inhaled and exhaled by vapers. It usually looks thicker than smoke, but vanishes more quickly into the air and smells much better, usually like fruit, candy, mint or the flavoring used.
Vaping is a tobacco-free, and in some cases even nicotine-free, version of a traditional tobacco cigarette, but we don’t use the word smoking as there is no smoke. But just for better understanding for those who don’t possess enough knowledge about what is vaping, I would say it’s smoking minus tobacco, the extremely unpleasant smell, virtually all the side-effects and health risks, and even the smoke. Instead of a pack of cigarette, you use an electronic device which is usually refillable and rechargeable.
Vaping has become a whole new culture, with vape manufacturers selling apparels, hats and gear with their name on it. What’s more, there are vape bars and online communities. To top it off, there are always people who want to take it to a whole new level, and in the world of vaping, they’re called cloud chasers. These folks have turned vaping into a competitive sport, which is called cloud chasing. The goal is simple, to produce the biggest, thickest and baddest clouds of vapor. And guess what, this is just the beginning. There is a competition named Cloudfest in Toronto in which the one who produces the most amount of vapor wins.

Vape mods are enhanced vaporizers with additional parts, more power, and more features. Mods are customized to cater vaping needs of different types of vapers. For example, some vapers prefer their vapor to be more flavor-rich that goes easy on the throat and is easy to inhale, while others want thick vapor, so they can exhale big plumes. Each of them will need a different type of vape mod.
