If you’ve spent any time looking at the different pod vaping systems that are available today, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that the market has become increasingly segmented over the years. In the past, the atomizer coil was always a permanent part of a vape pod. You’d use a pod until you were no longer happy with the flavor, and then you’d throw the entire pod away and start using a new one.

Permanent coils helped to make pod systems some of the most convenient vaping devices on the market, but many of the people who started out with those simple pod systems eventually decided that they wanted pod-based devices offering a bit more in the way of flexibility and features. The manufacturers of the vaping industry responded by creating the first pod systems with replaceable coils. That segment of the market expanded rapidly, and we now have a new generation of “pod mods” that are powerful and capable enough to rival full-sized vape mods.

You could spend all day comparing and contrasting the features of the latest pod vaping systems. Today, though, we’re going to focus on just one aspect of your decision if you’re shopping for a new pod system. Should you buy a pod system with permanent coils or replaceable coils? Answering these questions will help you find the pod system that’s right for you.

Are You New to Vaping?

If you’re new to vaping, you’re not just choosing between a pod system with permanent or replaceable coils – you’re also choosing between a pre-filled device and a refillable one. If you want to enjoy the widest possible array of flavors when vaping, you definitely want to go with a refillable pod system because no pre-filled device offers more than a handful of different flavors. At the same time, though, it’s a good idea to avoid unnecessary complexity when you buy your first vaping device. You want something that’s simple. That way, you’ll become accustomed to the device quickly – and that’ll make your transition from smoking to vaping as easy as it can be.

Do You Want Vaping to Be as Inexpensive as Possible?

One drawback of pod systems with permanent coils is the fact that your coils will rarely last as long as you might like them to. If you use an e-liquid that’s heavily sweetened, your coils will burn out quickly – often in just a day or two. If you need to buy an entirely new vape pod every time your coil burns out, vaping will be much more expensive for you than it needs to be. It’s much more affordable to use a pod system with replaceable coils because buying a new coil always costs less than buying a new vape pod.

Don’t forget that if your pod system has replaceable coils, you can extend the life of your coils by cleaning them. If you do that, you’ll save even more money. If you’re considering buying a SMOK pod system, you’ll also want to learn the special considerations that go into learning how to clean a SMOK coil. If you clean a vape coil properly, you’ll strip away the e-liquid residue and restore the coil’s original white and shiny surface. Cleaning a coil can allow you to reuse it several times.

Do You Want Vaping to Be as Convenient as Possible?

For some people, the quality of the vaping experience has little bearing on the decision between a pod system with permanent coils and one with replaceable coils. For those people, it’s mainly a matter of convenience and ease of use. Changing a vape coil is inconvenient, and it can sometimes be messy. You might get e-liquid on your hands when removing a coil from a pod. E-liquid may leak around the pod’s edges, and you’ll have to clean it up. For some people, replacing a coil periodically doesn’t feel like a lot of trouble. Other people, however, want vaping to feel as much like smoking as it possibly can – and maintaining a device is definitely not something that you have to do as a smoker.

If you’re looking for a pod system that offers total convenience and requires almost no maintenance, you’ll definitely want a device with permanent coils. That way, you only need to focus on keeping your device charged and your pod full. When a pod’s flavor is no longer to your liking, you can simply throw the entire pod away.

Do You Want a Device with Better Vapor Production?

One of the biggest reasons why some people prefer pod systems with replaceable coils actually has nothing to do with cost of ownership at all – it’s simply a matter of performance.

When a pod system has several different types of coils available, you can expect that the coils will be designed to appeal to people with a wide range of different needs. You’ll have some higher-resistance coils for the people who prefer the mouth-to-lung inhaling style and enjoy a cooler and more refined flavor. On the other end of the spectrum, you’ll have lower-resistance coils for those who prefer bigger vapor clouds and bolder flavors. It’s also common for pod systems with replaceable coils to have fully adjustable airflow, allowing for further customization.

Having a pod system with replaceable coils gives you the ability to tailor your vaping experience to your personal specifications, while the options are typically more limited with pod systems that have permanent coils. In addition, devices with replaceable coils usually have the potential to produce much bigger clouds. Cloud production might be important to you if you’re thinking about switching to an e-liquid with a lower nicotine strength or simply enjoy big vapor clouds – and if that’s the case, you’re probably going to want a pod system with replaceable coils.

Final Thoughts: What Type of Pod System Should You Buy?

It’s time to put everything together and help you find the right pod system for your needs. Should you buy a pod system with replaceable coils or one with permanent coils? Here’s a final overview.

  • You should buy a pod system with permanent coils if you want a device that’s more convenient and easier to use. If you’re a new vaper or simply don’t mind paying a little extra for convenience, this is probably the right type of vaping device for you.
  • You should buy a pod system with replaceable coils if you want to manage your expenses as much as possible or simply want a pod system that offers the best possible performance.

Ultimate Buying Guide for Disposable Vapes We don’t have to tell you that disposable vapes are some of the hottest products in the vaping industry today. That’ll quickly become evident to you when you read about vaping online or spend a few minutes in your local vape shop. If you’re actually interested in trying disposable vapes for yourself, though, it may not be immediately obvious whether disposable e-cigarettes are appropriate for your particular situation or what specific device you should buy. After all, it’s not as though you’re just going to see one or two different types of disposable vapes at a well-stocked vape shop; you’ll probably have hundreds of choices available.

So, should you buy a disposable vape – and if you do, how do you choose the right one? In this buying guide for disposable vapes, we’ll help you make the right choice for your needs. First, though, let’s learn a bit about why so many people are buying disposable e-cigarettes these days. If you’ve been vaping for a while, you’re going to learn that today’s disposable vapes are definitely not the same as the disposable e-cigarettes you may have seen in stores in the past.

Getting Started: What Are the Benefits of Disposable Vapes?

The main benefit of disposable vapes is the same as it has always been throughout the history of the vaping industry. A disposable e-cigarette is a vaping device that’s filled with e-liquid and fitted with a fully charged battery at the factory, and it comes out of the box ready to use immediately. When the device runs out of e-liquid or battery power, it’s time to replace it. Disposable vapes are the easiest vaping devices to use because they require no setup. That’s the main reason why they’re are so popular. They’re the only devices that are as convenient as cigarettes, and some people don’t want their vaping devices to feel like gadgets that require constant tinkering.

These days, though, disposable vapes are even better than they used to be. They’re more popular than ever because:

  • They’re larger and offer more battery life.
  • They produce bigger vapor clouds.
  • They use higher-strength e-liquids and are more satisfying.
  • They’re available in more flavors and offer a wider variety of possible experiences.
  • They’ve become just as inexpensive as other types of vaping devices.

In short, you can expect a modern disposable vape to provide a vaping experience that’s just as good as what you’d get with a small refillable device such as a vape pen or pod system. Today, more vapers than ever are using disposable vapes on a full-time basis instead of buying refillable vaping devices.

How Many Puffs Will You Get with a Disposable Vape?

Disposable vapes come in several different sizes, ranging from small “puff bars” that look a bit like USB sticks to larger vape pen-sized models. Even the largest disposable vapes, though, are still highly portable and will fit comfortably in your pocket.

On the package for a disposable vape, you’ll always see the approximate number of puffs that the device supports. They tend to start at around 200 puffs – about the same number of puffs as a pack of cigarettes – and slightly larger models may support up to 400-800 puffs.

It’s even possible to find some disposable e-cigarettes that contain up to 10 ml of vape juice and have rechargeable batteries. In this case, the packaging may advertise that the device supports 4,000 puffs or more. These very high-capacity disposable vapes have rechargeable batteries. You’ll need to charge the battery a few times to exhaust the device’s e-liquid supply – and when the e-liquid is gone, it’s time to replace the device.

Rechargeable disposable vapes are not available in all regions of the world. In the United Kingdom and the European Union, regulations limit the e-liquid capacity of pre-filled vaping devices to a maximum of 2 ml. In regions where rechargeable disposable vapes are available, though, a single device can conceivably last a week or more before it runs out of vape juice.

What’s the Best Nicotine Strength for a Disposable Vape?

A disposable vape will generally use high-strength nicotine salt e-liquid and may be available in two different nicotine strengths. The available nicotine strengths will vary depending on the region in which you live.

  • If you live in the United Kingdom or Europe, disposable vapes are generally available in nicotine strengths of 10 mg/ml and 20 mg/ml.
  • If you live in the United States or elsewhere, disposable vapes are generally available in nicotine strengths of 25 mg/ml and 50 mg/ml.

If you’re already a full-time vaper, we suggest starting with the 20 mg/ml nicotine strength in the United Kingdom and Europe or the 25 mg/ml strength in the United States and elsewhere. We suggest using the lower strength in the United States because, as someone who has switched to vaping, your nicotine requirements are probably lower than those of a smoker. If you are currently a smoker and are buying your first disposable vape, start with the highest available nicotine strength and switch to a lower strength if you feel like you’re getting more nicotine than you need.

What Are the Best Flavors for Disposable Vapes?

The last thing that you need to do when choosing your first disposable vape is select the flavor you want – and these days, the sky really is the limit here. That’s because many manufacturers of disposable vapes are now sourcing their e-liquids from the most popular vape juice makers. In the past, you needed to buy bottled e-liquid if you wanted to experience the best flavors on the market. That’s no longer the case because almost all of those same flavors are now available in disposable vapes.

If you’ve never vaped before, you might like to start with a tobacco or menthol flavor that’ll give you an experience reminiscent of smoking. However, we highly recommend trying at least one sweet flavor as well because that’s what most vapers prefer. The flavor of an e-liquid comes from a combination of food-grade flavor concentrates, and it’s difficult to replicate the flavor of a cigarette with those ingredients. However, a disposable vape can give you a very convincing rendition of a fruit, candy or dessert flavor – and life is a lot more fun when your nicotine tastes like key lime pie instead of cigarette smoke.

Your Complete Guide to Vaping in Australia Like it or not, vaping is here to stay. Despite its popularity, though, the fact is that some of the world’s regulators are a bit less strongly in favor of vaping than others. That’s resulted in some situations around the world in which vaping is permitted but regulated extremely strictly. Among all of the nations that regulate vaping in unusual or restrictive ways, Australia certainly takes the cake. Are you an Australian smoker who wants to switch to vaping? You can do it, but you’re going to need to jump through some hoops first if you want to use vape juice with nicotine.

This is your complete guide to vaping in Australia.

Can’t I Just Get My Vaping Supplies from a Local Vape Shop?

If you’ve searched online, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that there are plenty of vape shops in Australia. When you enter an Australian vape shop for the first time as a new vaper, though, you’re liable to get an unpleasant surprise. That’s because Australia’s vaping regulations specify that traditional retailers are not allowed to sell e-liquid with nicotine. There are several things that you can buy locally. You can buy vaping devices, as well as vape tanks, pod systems and replacement coils. You can also buy bottled e-liquid and pre-filled pods as long as they contain no nicotine.

The problem, though, is that nicotine-free e-liquid isn’t actually what many new vapers want. Although many people do switch from smoking to vaping successfully without using nicotine, those people are in the minority because replacing the nicotine from cigarettes always makes it easier to stop smoking.

So, how do you vape in Australia if you want to use nicotine? Before we go into detail about that, let’s discuss how Australia’s vaping regulations actually work.

What Are Australia’s Vaping Regulations?

The Therapeutic Goods Administration is the agency in Australia responsible for controlling access to nicotine, and the TGA website provides the details of how Australia’s vaping regulations work. In short, the regulations specify that you must obtain a prescription from a doctor before you can buy e-liquid with nicotine.

That has been the rule in Australia for virtually as long as vaping has existed, but the nation became even stricter about enforcing the rule in October 2021. Prior to the introduction of the strengthened rules, many people simply imported their e-liquid from overseas sellers without first obtaining prescriptions. Since October, however, you can be certain that someone will actually be checking for a prescription when you buy e-liquid online. There is simply no way to avoid the prescription requirement if you want to buy nicotine e-liquid in Australia.

How Do I Buy Nicotine E-Liquid in Australia?

The process for buying nicotine e-liquid in Australia may not be easy, but it is at least fairly straightforward. As mentioned above, the first thing that you’ll need to do is obtain a prescription for nicotine e-liquid from a doctor. There’s a good chance that your regular doctor will be amenable to writing a prescription if you describe your previous attempts to stop smoking and make it clear that vaping represents your only realistic chance of quitting.

If your doctor doesn’t understand what vaping is or doesn’t feel comfortable writing a prescription, you should visit the website of the Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association. On the ATHRA website, you’ll find a list of doctors who have been briefed on the harm reduction aspect of vaping and are amenable to writing prescriptions if it’ll help their patients quit smoking. Your doctor may be even happier about writing the prescription if you’ll also commit yourself to reducing your overall nicotine intake over time.

After you’ve obtained a prescription, you’re free to buy e-liquid with nicotine from one of two sources.

  • You can import e-liquid from a seller outside Australia, and the fastest and most convenient option for that is to buy from a company in New Zealand such as Premium Vape Australia. The top vape shops in New Zealand know how Australia’s vaping regulations work. They have the logistics already in place for shipping to Australia, and they know how to comply with Australia’s vaping regulations. Most importantly, buying nicotine e-liquid in Australia from a New Zealand vape shop ensures that you’ll get your products quickly while enjoying the widest possible selection of e-liquid flavors. Shipping from New Zealand to Australia is very fast.
  • You can also find a local compounding pharmacy and ask the people there if they have the ability to produce e-liquid for you. A few Australian pharmacies do manufacture vape juice, and that’s an option that can potentially help you avoid waiting for overseas delivery. Buying e-liquid from a pharmacy, however, does have two drawbacks. The first downside of buying vape juice from a compounding pharmacy is that you’ll have very few flavors from which to choose. Some pharmacies may not offer any flavors at all. In addition, you can also expect to spend significantly more than you would have if you’d imported your e-liquid.

What Type of Vape Kit Should I Buy?

Most people find that switching from smoking to vaping is much easier with a high-nicotine e-liquid. That’s because you’ll feel a strong throat hit when vaping, and that’ll make vaping feel similar to smoking. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to choose a vaping device specifically designed for good performance with high-nicotine e-liquids. For that, you have two primary options.

  • You can buy a pod-based vaping device that uses pre-filled pods. If you go this route, you’ll probably need to buy your initial starter kit from an overseas seller. That’s because most of the popular pre-filled vaping devices do not have nicotine-free pods available, so there’s no legal way to sell the starter kits in Australia. Although importing your vape kit does mean that you’ll have to wait a couple of days before you can start vaping, the benefit is that pre-filled devices are the easiest and most convenient vaping products to use. All that you need to do is charge the device, insert the pod and start vaping. Pre-filled devices are ideal for most new vapers.
  • You can buy a refillable pod-based vaping device that uses bottled e-liquid. If you go this route, you can buy your vaping device from a local vape shop but will still need to import your e-liquid from an overseas seller. The benefit of using a refillable vaping device is that you can buy the hardware from a local vape shop – along with a bottle of nicotine-free e-liquid – and spend a few days getting used to vaping while you wait for your nicotine e-liquid to arrive from overseas. The downside, however, is that refillable devices are a bit more complicated for new vapers than pre-filled devices. You might be happier if you start with a pre-filled device and buy a refillable device later when you gain experience.

Voopoo Drag X: Instruction Manual and Troubleshooting Guide Over the past year, the top manufacturers in the vaping industry have worked overtime in a non-stop attempt to leapfrog one another and release the undisputed best pod mod on the market. The pod mod is certainly the hottest type of product in vaping right now, and the Voopoo Drag X has made a compelling case as the product that offers the most attractive design and the best set of features at the lowest price. If you agree with that statement and have selected the Drag X as your next vaping device, this is the page for you. Today’s vaping manufacturers are notoriously scant in terms of the documentation they include with their devices, and we’re going to make up for that with this Voopoo Drag X instruction manual. After the first section, we’re also going to explain how to fix the most common problems that you might experience with the Drag X.

How to Charge the Voopoo Drag X

To charge the Voopoo Drag X, start by inserting an 18650 battery with a continuous discharge rating of at least 30 amps. Push the device’s bottom cover in the direction of the arrow to open the battery compartment. Insert the battery with the positive terminal facing the top of the device and close the battery cover.

Connect the Voopoo Drag X to your computer using the included USB cable. When the battery indicator on the screen is full and the screen displays the message “100%,” the charge cycle is complete.

How to Fill the Voopoo Drag X

If the Voopoo Drag X is your first pod-based vaping device, you may experience a little unfamiliarity when you try to fill it for the first time because filling the Voopoo Drag X pod isn’t quite the same as filling a traditional vape tank. The pod connects to the Voopoo Drag X magnetically. To fill the pod, lift it away from the device and hold it upside down. You’ll see the filling hole on the underside of the pod. Lift the cover with your fingernail and add e-liquid via the filling hole until the pod is nearly full. Remember to leave a little room for air in the pod. Close the cover tightly and remove any spilled e-liquid with a paper towel before returning the pod to the device.

How to Vape with the Voopoo Drag X

After you’ve charged the battery, filled the pod and waited several minutes for the atomizer coil’s wick to become completely wet, you’re ready to start vaping. Press the fire button five times quickly to turn the Voopoo Drag X on if it isn’t on already. The Drag X pod uses Voopoo PnP coils, and it can detect the resistance of the installed coil automatically. When you first turn the device on, it defaults to the SMART vaping mode and automatically configures its wattage for the installed coil. If you want to adjust the wattage, press the power button three times quickly to switch to the RBA vaping mode. In this mode, you can use the adjustment buttons on the front of the device to choose your desired wattage. Be careful when vaping in RBA mode because you’ll risk burning your coil’s cotton wick if you set the wattage too high.

To vape with the Voopoo Drag X, puff on the mouthpiece while holding the fire button. You can adjust the device’s airflow characteristics by moving the tab located under the pod.

How to Fix Problems with the Voopoo Drag X

As you’ve probably noticed, one of the major shortcomings with the printed Voopoo Drag X instruction manual is that it includes no information to help you troubleshoot the problems that may occur with the device. In this section of our guide, we’ll fill in the gaps by explaining how to fix the most common Voopoo Drag X problems.

Voopoo Drag X Not Charging

If your Voopoo Drag X isn’t charging, the first thing that you should do is try a different USB-C cable. USB cables begin to develop internal faults when they’re used constantly, and it’s highly likely that your Drag X will outlive the included charging cable. Always charge the Voopoo Drag X through your computer. Voopoo also recommends charging the device with the arrow on your USB cable facing the bottom of the mod. If your Drag X still isn’t charging, try charging the battery in an external charger if one is available. If the battery is no longer holding a charge, you’ll need to replace it.

Voopoo Drag X Leaking

If your Voopoo Drag X is leaking, check to make sure that the filing hole on the bottom of the pod is closed firmly. Remove and inspect the coil. Are the coil’s gaskets misaligned? If so, the coil won’t have an airtight seal. If the gaskets aren’t warped, you should be able to move them to their correct positions. If the gaskets are stretched out of place, though, you’ll need to replace the coil.

Voopoo Drag X Coils Burning Out Quickly

Under normal conditions, you can expect the coils for the Voopoo Drag X to last several days before they require replacement. If you find that you’re spending too much on vaping because your coils burn out quickly, there are two likely causes for the problem.

  • You’re vaping at too high a wattage and are burning your coil’s wick. Use the SMART vaping mode to have the Drag X automatically determine an appropriate wattage for the installed coil.
  • You’re using sweetened e-liquid. Sucralose creates a residue that causes vape coils to burn out quickly. If you use unsweetened e-liquid, you’ll enjoy much longer coil life.

Voopoo Drag X Error Messages

The Voopoo Drag X has some built-in safety features that will automatically shut the device down if a condition exists that’s potentially unsafe. These are the actions that you should take if your Drag X displays an error message while you vape.

  • Check Battery: The battery has a problem or requires charging. Check the battery to ensure that it is installed correctly, with the positive terminal facing the top of the device. Make sure the battery has no sign of physical damage and that the outer wrapper is intact. If everything looks normal, recharge the battery.
  • Max Power: You’re trying to increase the wattage past the device’s maximum supported power level.
  • Temp High: The internal temperature of the Voopoo Drag is too high. Move the device to a cooler environment and stop vaping for several minutes.
  • Time Out: You’re holding down the fire button for too long. Use shorter puffs when vaping.
  • Atomizer Short: The connected atomizer coil may have a short circuit. Remove the coil from the pod and reinstall it. If the device continues displaying this message, you should discard the coil and use another one.
  • Check Atomizer: The Voopoo Drag X isn’t detecting the installed atomizer coil. Remove the pod from the device and check for spilled e-liquid. Dry the top of the device and the bottom of the pod with a paper towel and ensure that the coil is fully inserted into the bottom of the pod. If you continue to see this error message, try replacing the coil.

Titan Vaporizer Review: Types, Use, and Where to Buy The world keeps changing every day. Today, we can confidently say that there is a good alternative for tobacco smokers, which is vaping. As an e-cigarette enthusiast, you probably have already heard about vaporizers and how impressive they are. You might not have heard about the Titan Vaporizer. 

The Titan Vaporizer is a dry herb vaporizer. With this technology, you can vape dry herbs rather than smoke them. Vaping an herb delivers more benefits than smoking it. With that in mind, here is everything you need to know about the Titan Vaporizer. 

Types of Titan Vaporizer 

There are various types of Titan Vaporizer, and we are going to look at two of them.

  • Titan 1 Vaporizer – This is a solid vaporizer that is smaller and lighter when compared to the Titan 2 Vaporizer. The temperature here cannot be customized easily, hence making the Titan 1 Vaporizer good for newbies.  
  • Titan 2 Vaporizer – This is an example of a dry herb vaporizer that is both similar and different from the Titan 1 Vaporizer. It is not as small as the Titan 1 Vaporizer, but they both perform the same function. However, the Titan 2 has a digital temperature guard that allows it to select the ideal temperature. It is recommended for experienced vapers since there are some complex concepts to learn over time as you continue using this type of vaporizer.

What Are Some of Their Uses? 

There are several uses for a Titan Vaporizer.

  • To vaporize dry herbs for inhalation – When a dry herb is heated within a particular temperature range, it can be vaped rather than smoked. This is advantageous for both the potency and efficacy of the herb.  
  • An alternative for cigarette smokers – Nicotine has some negative effects on the body and is very addictive. With a dry herb vaporizer, a vaper can use an herb without any nicotine but still enjoy vaping as a replacement for the habit of smoking.  

Where to Buy a Titan Vaporizer 

If you are planning to get one of these cool Titan Vaporizer models, then you should try these retail options. 

  • Online stores – This is the easiest and safest place to get your Titan vape. Online stores such as ePuffer offer you a variety of vaporizers to choose from, meaning there is everything for everyone. If you are interested, visit their website, and just follow the required steps. Then, you will not have to wait long for your vape Titan. 
  • Health stores – You can just walk to a nearby store and pick up your Titan vape; it is just that simple. However, this might not be an option in every country or state. Make sure you have reviewed the laws around your area before buying any product like a Titan vape. 


Titan Vaporizers are a new trend nowadays, as most vaping enthusiasts are eager to learn more about them. If you feel the same way, you should read the above article for a better understanding.

How Serious is Covid-19 for Men Who Vape?

Covid-19 is breaking all hell loose all across the world despite the extreme precautions. It’s been affecting more people than anticipated and the death toll is getting higher every day.

There are plenty of coronavirus symptoms that match with respiratory infections and it is hard to tell if it is coronavirus or a simple infection.

That being said and coronavirus breaking out in every country, there are different rumors every single day. Some people said it is affecting people of elderly age, some said most men are becoming a victim of this disease, and some said it is attacking people who smoke or vape. 

But the truth is all types of coronavirus previous and new cause respiratory infections. They attack the lungs and from there, they put people who vape or smoke at higher risk of complications.

The same is the case with COVID-19. It causes an infection in the chest. It is also from a family of viruses that causes respiratory infections and spreads easily.

Why do ‘people who vape, or smoke’ are scared of COVID-19 implications?

People are scared and particularly men who vape or smoke are under a lot of pressure because of these revelations.

Whether they use an ooze vape pen or any high-quality cigarette, they are still at a high risk of getting infected according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. It is obvious that men who vape or smoke can have pulmonary inflammation and chronic lung disease.

It is normal for such men to have lung disease or asthma. They lack the immunity against chest infections and get to be at higher risk for severe illness from Covid-19. Another reason is that these people are already prone to getting chest infections.

Is there a connection between covid-19 and young victims?

As covid-19 has spread widely and made people sick, there have been different results from research studies as well. Some studies have found the connection between the men who vape or smoke and how they have picked the virus more quickly than those who don’t smoke or vape at all.

But it is all understudy still.

We are expected to make more progress with concrete results. According to one study people from ages, 20 to 44 have been affected hard because they either smoked or vaped. Some of the young patients need intubation and ventilation more than their elders.

Some say that they didn’t self-isolate themselves or practice social distancing but if they needed intubation, deep down they were vaping, and this could be a serious thing.

It is not just Covid-19 that is deadly, but it is their immune system that’s been compromised severely, and it doesn’t fight with any foreign infection even if it is Covid-19.

So, it can be concluded that men who vape or smoke are more susceptible to pulmonary complications after getting Covid-19 infection.

How lungs get infected by COVID-19?

The earliest symptom of Covid-19 shows tightness in the chest. Some people experience difficulty in breathing and fever as well. While a person is feeling tightness and pain in the chest, the virus can damage the lining of the air sacs in the lungs.

At this place, oxygen is delivered to the blood, but these sacs will be filled with mucus fluid, dead cells, and other debris caused by infection. This whole thing will block the oxygen supply from getting through.

This filling up of the air sacs appears white on a chest X-ray or CT scan of a patient with Covid-19 pneumonia. The air sacs typically full of air will appear black on radiographic studies.

When the lungs have oxygen blocked, they have to work hard to maintain the whole-body system because oxygen is needed for other organs. The stress placed on longs will cause the person to cough and if the pressure is increased, the organs in the human body are susceptible to failure one by one.

What will be the lung condition that can make COVID-19 symptoms worse?

Vaping can have implications on the lungs. These implications include shortness of breath, cough, and rapid and shallow breathing in men who vape.  This respiratory condition is known as EVALI because it is associated with vaping.

These things don’t develop immediately but after vaping for many years, lungs get damaged over time. Damage to air sacs can cause pneumonia occasionally. There is acute inflammation that many men who vape can experience.

All of these symptoms induce a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The COVID-19 would amplify these conditions and men who vape are expected to get worse over time.

Is there a truth to rumors that coronavirus is more deadly for men than women? Is there any connection to smoking in this?

These are not just rumors as the early data from China and Italy suggests that men were more susceptible to coronavirus than women. The death rate in infected men was seeming higher from 65% to 75% than in infected women.

One of the reasons behind this rumor is that women in these countries don’t smoke as much as men do, so it’s possible that men also had underlying lung conditions that made them die of coronavirus. But so far there is no concrete evidence that supports this theory.

How can vapers keep themselves safe?

Although there is a lot of negativity when it comes to vape, it isn’t that bad for health. It is a better alternative to smoking and it filters all sorts of dangerous materials involved in the cigarette.

Everyone who has switched to vaping knows the harms of vaping. But if you are scared of Covid-19 and need some help, follow the tips mentioned below:

  • If you are a hardcore smoker, switch to vaping as soon as possible because vaping is a better alternative
  • Vaping may lead you to quit smoking once and for all so switching to it was a good idea.

4 Top Tips to Help You Become a Successful Vaper While vapers are continually looking for new and exciting ways to improve their smoking experience, many don't even know how to start!

While Vaping with Electronic Cigarettes is relatively easy, there is no question that there is more to learn to improve your vaping experience truly.

Even the best-experienced vapers at one point or another, which is why we are human and prone to errors!

Here are some of the most common mistakes I see people making when it comes to e-cigs, tips on avoiding them, and tricks on what not to do if you already make a mistake.

You can also read my ebook, "The Real Secrets of E-Cigarette Success," which explains the different kinds of devices, techniques, and strategies that the experts use to get the most out of their Vaping.

It's important to know that even the best vapers' methods will fall short if you don't have the correct information about the products and their effects.

Tip One

Don't use too much of your battery. This might sound counterintuitive, but it is the key to good vaping. Keep in mind that your device will lose juice faster if you don't keep it topped off.

To help avoid this, make sure you only have your battery full for a couple of hours. Also, remember to always keep your device from overcharging.

If you do overcharge, it will drain the juice out of the battery faster, making it more difficult to refill.

Tip Two

Never try to use a dripping atomizer. While dripping is easy, misusing it can make your nicotine vapors less potent and therefore not useful. Instead of using the drip method, you should use the wick method.

This involves dipping your finger in the mouthpiece and inserting it into your mouth. The wick will hold the liquid for you and create more flavorful vapor without dripping.

Remember that you need a steady flow to get the most out of your vapor. Don't forget, though, that you can still use dripping if you want, but you should try to do so sparingly.

Tip Three

Never use too much oil. Vaping with any liquid can be difficult, especially when you have a dripping atomizer. Some people can make massive amounts of juice out of tiny drops of liquid, leading to a mess.

If you aren't using a dripping atomizer, make sure you use a small amount of oil. And then leave it in for a while before replacing it with a new one.

You can use other liquids, such as fruit juice or coconut oil, and apple cider vinegar, but you can never underestimate the power of oil.

Tip Four

Don't use a kit if you're a novice. While many people think this is easy, it can be downright frustrating if you're a beginner trying to master your way into the world of vapers. Try not to buy cheap kits as this can lead to more headaches than you bargained for.

As a beginner, you should find plenty of online resources on the internet that gives you the information you need to succeed.

As you get better and more experienced, you can start to seek advice from more experienced vapers. For instance, you can find forums to help you out and share tips, tricks, and techniques.

The Basics of Vape Pens

The functionality of a cigarette or pipe is quite easy to understand. All you need to do is light a cigarette and inhale the smoke it produces. On the other hand, a vape pen is somewhat mysterious. However, the way it works is not complicated either. The difference between these units and the traditional units is that they have a heating element instead of fire. Let's find out more.

Basically, when the tobacco, dry herb, oil or wax heats up, the chemicals found inside transform into vapor. Aside from this, both nicotine and THC turn into vapor at a temperature that is lower than plant matter combustion point. Therefore, vaporizing is a healthy substitute for smoking.

The basics of Vape Pens

Typical vape pens share similar looks with a traditional pen. They have a cartridge for cannabis buds, wax, oil or a different medical herb. Often, the rechargeable battery is a vital part of the device. The mouthpiece is removable so you can clean it without any effort. On some units, you can find temperature adjustment buttons.

These devices are easy to use and can be found in a lot of price tags, materials, colors and shapes. Besides, you can find fresh models in the market.

Materials used in the device

Vape pens use different types of cannabis, oils, waxes, dry herbs and liquids. All of these are concentrated form of the leaves and buds of marijuana. The THC is obtained from the plant with the help of ice water or a solvent.

For concentrate making, the two common chemicals are pressurized carbon dioxide and butane. As far as butane is concerned, the solvent turns into vapor and leaves a little bit of residue. On the other hand, carbon dioxide is a better way of getting the THC concentrate. However, it requires you to go for expensive machinery.

The Health Benefits of Vaping

Smoking has its adverse consequences but vape pens have a few health benefits as well. You can find new types of these units on the market. More and more research studies are being done to find out more health benefits of these devices.

Vape Mods

For the first time, vaporizers were developed by a pharmacist in China. Actually, his goal was to quit smoking. In a few years, these devices appeared in a lot of countries. However, some countries have banned them altogether.

Aside from this, laws regarding vape pen keep on changing with time. According to many studies, vaporized nicotine can be an effective method if you want to quit smoking. Nowadays, a heated debate is happening to set laws to regulate the use of these units.

For instance, in California, there are regulations to use vape pen. Most people use vape mods to vaporize nicotine and avoid other tobacco products. These units look like a pen. Vape mods use a small cartridge that contains e-liquid. This liquid is made of propylene glycol and liquid nicotine with different flavors. The battery heats up the liquid until it hits 375 degrees and releases vapor that you can inhale via a mouthpiece.

Hopefully, this article will help you understand the basics of vape pens.

Electronic Cigarette - The Next Quit Smoking Device

Ever since the public became aware about the dangers of smoking a few decades ago, many people have found quitting the tobacco habit hard. Companies have been innovating and manufacturing smoking cessation products for many years now. From nicotine patches to gum, nicotine addicts have been using them to quit their habit.

Electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes and electric cigarettes)are the newest product on the market. They are designed to look and feel like real cigarettes, even down to emitting artificial smoke however they do not actually contain any tobacco. Users inhale nicotine vapour which looks like smoke without any of the carcinogens found in tobacco smoke which are harmful to the smoker and others around him.

The Electronic cigarette consists of a nicotine cartridge containing liquid nicotine. When a user inhales, a tiny battery powered atomizer turns a small amount of liquid nicotine into vapour. Inhaling nicotine vapour gives the user a nicotine hit in seconds rather than minutes with patches or gum. When the user inhales, a small LED light at the tip of the electronic cigarette glows orange to simulate a real cigarette.

The nicotine cartridges themselves come in various strengths. Most of the major brands, such as the Gamucci electronic cigarette have full strength, half strength and minimal strength. This is designed for people who want to quit smoking. As they get used to using the electronic cigarette, they can gradually reduce the strength they use until they quit.

The main advantages electronic cigarettes have over nicotine patches or gum is firstly, users have the nicotine hit much quicker and secondly, because a big reason why smokers fail to quit suing patches and gum is because they still miss the act of inhaling smoke from a cylindrical object. The electronic cigarette emulates that even down to the smoke.

The electronic cigarette is also beneficial from a financial perspective. A set of five nicotine cartridges costs around £8 and is equivalent to 500 cigarettes. Although the initial investment of an electronic cigarette kit of £50 may seem steep at first, users save money in the long run.

As with many popular products, there have been a great number of cheap Chinese imitations flooding the market. They are usually half the price of a branded electronic cigarette and look like the real thing as well. It is inadvisable to use these because they have not been subject to the same rigorous testing the official electronic cigarettes have and can potentially be highly damaging to the user's health.

As electronic cigarettes become more and more popular, they are increasingly used to smoke in pubs and clubs with a smoking ban. Electronic cigarettes seem to be the next thing and may soon replace real cigarettes in clubs.

Things to Keep in Mind Before You Buy a Vape

If you are finding it hard to opt for the right vape, we can help. You have a lot of options to choose from, such as pod vape, vape pen, unregulated box mod, mech mod, and personal vaporizer, to name a few. Besides, there are a lot of flavors and nicotine levels to choose from. Given below are the things you need to consider to make a choice. Read on to find out more.

What is a Box Mod?

At first, the world saw tube-like, low-powered mods and e-the electronic versions. They looked like the regular packets you can buy. The units contained disposable cartridges that needed to be replaced at the end of their life. So, this is important to keep in mind.

Next, they invented the vape pens. These units are wider and longer than the earlier devices. With bigger batteries, these units offer better performance and a lot longer backup time.

In simple words, box mods are a type of vaping device that looks like a box unlike the conventional pen-like shapes. The new devices are more complex and feature circuit boards and large screens that can be used to do many functions.

Vape Pen vs Box Mod

The biggest advantage of the pen-shaped devices over the box mods is that they are small, which is why they are portable. But many vape users go for a vape box because of many reasons. Although they are not as flexible as the cylinder device, they offer a lot of unique features, such as longer battery life, better cloud production and better control.

Regulated Box Mod features

With the passage of time, the chipsets found in the regulated box mods continued to get better. Nowadays, a lot of commercially available mods and the electronic alternatives offer a number of advanced controls. These features allow you to get the most out of the unit. Therefore, they are a bit more expensive than the alternatives. However, the extra price is worth it. Let's get a deeper insight into these features:

Safety features: The good thing about regulated mods is that they come with internal regulations. This makes sure that the units will never misfire. On the other hand, mechanical box mods don't send filters voltage to the internal atomizer without unspecified degree of resistance.

In an unregulated box mod, failure can occur because of a non-compatible battery and a low-ohm coil. It happens because there is no safety measure in place.

Temperature control: with some new box mods, you can easily control both wattage and temperature. All you need to do is change their settings, and you can enjoy different vape experiences. While using the device, you can change the power the unit consumes.

So, these are some of the main features of these devices. If you want to buy one, we suggest that you consider the details described in this article.

Long story short, if you follow the tips given in this article, you will be able to opt for the right vape device. Hopefully, you will find this article quite useful.

What You Need to Know About Vaping As a Beginner

Vaping refers to the inhalation and exhalation of the aerosol or vapor. Typically, it's produced by a device, such as the electronic version of smokers. This term is in use as they don't emit tobacco smoke. The problem is that people mistake aerosol for water vapor, but there is a difference between the two. Let's find out more.

Vapor is actually water vapor that comprises fine particles that have different amount of toxic chemicals. It's important to keep in mind that these chemicals may cause heart disease, respiratory disease and cancer, to name a few.

Since these units became quite common with the passage of time, vaping has gone up in popularity. They were made available in the market in 2007, in the United States. Therefore, the statistics tell us that these products are taking the place of regular cigarettes, which is why you should give them a go. And we can say for sure that you won't regret your decision.

As far as vaping devices are concerned, they include vape pens and modern vaporizers, aka MODS as well. The electronic type looks like the regular type, but vape pens look like big fountain pens. Also, what makes them different from other alternatives include cost and design. The design is simple but cost is a bit higher. Aside from this, they are customizable to meet the needs of users.

Typically, a vaping unit comprises many components, such as a battery, e-liquid cartridge, heating parts and a mouthpiece. When you turn on the device, the battery powers the heating part that transforms the liquid into aerosol. The user inhales the aerosol and then exhales a few seconds later.

Usually, the e-liquid found in these products has a nicotine based propylene glycol. Aside from this, it contains artificial flavors, metals or other chemicals. However, it doesn't contain tobacco. Keep in mind that some users use the units for vaping THC. This chemical is used to produce the mind-altering effects just like marijuana. Similarly, it creates effects that flakka produce, which is a synthetic drug.

As far as the popularity is concerned, the most popular product is called JUUL. This is a small unit that looks like a computer flash drive. Since it has a subtle design, it is easier to hide. This is the main reason why it's so popular among students.

The good thing is that vaping products are safer than regular tobacco based products for a number of reasons. As a matter of fact, they are quite popular in the united states. Moreover, you can choose from different flavors, such as fruit medley, mango, and crème brulee, to name a few. Also, some products contain a lot of nicotine with good flavors. In fact, some cartridges contain the amount of nicotine that can be found in a full packet of regular smoke producers.

Long story short, this was an introduction to vaping and vaping products. You can choose from your desired products to meet your vaping needs. Just make sure you don't use these devices if you already have cancer, cardiac disease or other deadly diseases. Hope this helps.

Why E-Cigarettes Can't Help You Quit Smoking

The latest buzz for people who are trying to quit smoking is the electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette. Seemingly overnight, this industry sprung up as a supposedly viable solution to quitting smoking, and with good reason: the electronic cigarette isn't actually a cigarette, it just soothes your cravings for nicotine. So, is it really a good idea?

The electronic cigarette falls under the same category as nicotine patches and gums: Nicotine Replacement Therapy. In the same vein, it has the exact same problems as the other nicotine replacement methods: it's merely a band-aid for your urge to quit.

As I was trying to quit smoking, I tried virtually every trick in the book. None of them worked, and for good reason: when I ran out, I went right back to smoking. I never sat around and said, 'Wow, I could really go for one of those nicotine patches right now!'

Of course, the solution to this is to keep an ample supply of whatever replacement you're using on hand. But what happens when you're out at a bar or with friends? Everyone's out smoking, you're not going to be that person who turns on their e-cigarette and takes a few drags, being all high and mighty over the other smokers. It just doesn't make sense.

There is really only one real way to quit smoking: willpower. Many people say that cold turkey is the hardest way to quit smoking, and with good reason: they go about it all the wrong way. If you know what you're doing and stomp out your want for cigarettes before you start, you'll be able to quit and never look back!

Want to learn more about quitting smoking through raw willpower? Take a look at some of these quit smoking books [] and see how easy it really can be to quit!

Need more help kicking the habit? Take a look at these quit smoking forums [] and you'll find all the support you need to rid your life of cigarettes for good!

The History E-Cigarettes and Vaping

It seems as if 'vaping' came out of nowhere. One day it didn't exist and then a few months later everywhere we went someone was vaping. In reality, electro-mechanical cigarettes are not new. Neither is the concept of using vapor to breathe in smoked herbs, scents, or mild-poisons. In fact, that has been going on for as long as mankind has been keeping a written record, perhaps even longer. There are accounts of such techniques in ancient China, as well as in ancient Egypt. The Romans often smoked in bathhouses, and in India 1,500 years ago, they called smoking sugary tobacco 'shisha'.

One famous author, Jean M. Auel, in her famous series of novels describes several ancient civilizations living in caves partaking in such smoke vaping rituals. Indeed, there is enough archeological evidence to support her historical novel storyline and depictions of such.

Vaping Patents and Inventions

Fast forward to 1927 and Joseph Robinson received the first electro-mechanical cigarettes patent. He called his invention the electronic vaporizer. There were several other patents granted after that for various applications of that invention. In the early 1960s, a gentleman by the name of Herbert Gilbert came up with a contraption called the Smokeless Non-Tobacco Cigarette although it wasn't marketed to the masses, as current vaping products, devices, and paraphernalia are today.

In 2003 a Chinese company, Hon Lik, came up with the first real electro-mechanical cigarettes device. Very similar to the style and types we see today. It comprised of a plastic cartridge, a small battery, a liquid nicotine compound, and a heating element using an ultrasonic atomizer. Although this sounds like a complex machine, it was relatively simple and inexpensive to produce. The funny thing is that no one in China much cared for it or even wanted to try it, even though the Chinese people today are among the biggest smokers in the world (cite below).

What Was the Original Purpose of Vaping Devices?

The original invention of this device was to allow people to quit smoking to save their lungs and prevent smoking from eventually taking their lives by way of lung disease, lung cancer, and other lung ailments. It was created to solve a problem and done so with the greatest intentions. The device is supposed to allow one to still have their nicotine hit without the long-term problems associated with smoking traditional cigarettes. Since nicotine is approximately a 3-day addiction, meaning if you stop smoking for 3-days you don't really need it anymore, the electro-mechanical cigarettes made sense.

Realize also that vaping is very similar to smoking marijuana through a bong. It increases the speed of getting high and intensity. With a vaping device, one can get the nicotine into their system quickly and relieve anxiety and stress which seems to be why humans like smoking cigarettes.

Overview of Vaporizer Heating Elements

Anyone who has taken two seconds to survey the breadth of the vaporizer market quickly notices that various brands tout their heating element as "the best available" while pointing out health risks associated with their competitors' models. Evaluating all these (sometimes conflicting) statements can be quite a task. The purpose of this article is not to endorse a specific type of heating element, but instead to gather the available information about heating elements in one place to aid people in making informed decisions when buying a vaporizer.

Why Do Heating Elements Matter? The heating element is the most integral part of any vaporizer. It regulates the temperature of the air that catalyzes the active ingredients as the air passes through it. A note: the air passing through the heating element may be either propelled by a pump in balloon-style models i.e. the Volcano Vaporizer or by one's own in direct-inhalation style vaporizers i.e. the VaporCannon. Some models, such as the herbalAire, are capable of both balloon and direct-inhale style vaporization. A primary requirement for all heating elements is precision - you want your vaporizer to actually be at the temperature you set - but health considerations may also play when people shop for vaporizers.

Types of Heating Elements:

#1: Ceramic

Ceramic heating elements are the most commonly type of heating elements. Their proponents argue that they are the cleanest and therefore healthiest option. This statement holds some truth: ceramics can withstand very high temperatures (about 3000*F) before the material starts to transform to a gas and are therefore very clean and healthy. Some companies take this logic a step further and argue that since other types of heating elements have lower "boiling points" they are dirtier and less healthy. This argument is somewhat flawed: while other heating elements have lower boiling points, these points are usually still well in excess of typical vaporizing temperatures. Read about the specific types below for more info.

Another important consideration when evaluation vaporizers with ceramic heating elements is the quality of the ceramic unit because the term "ceramic" is used to describe types of elements that are quite different in design. This is due to the fact that "ceramic" merely refers to whether or not the unit incorporates some ceramic into the heating element's design, it does not mean that the air only touches ceramic material. This makes buying vaporizers with ceramic heating elements difficult unless one knows the specifics of the designs used by each manufacturer. As a general rule of thumb cheaper vaporizers are more likely to have exposed low-quality wire or solder within the heating element's ceramic structure that can emit toxins. So steer clear of that digi vape if you want quality vapor. While the only definitive test is to take an element completely apart to see how it is constructed, some manufacturers will address these questions if you contact them. The manufacturers of the low quality models will dodge them.

Low quality ceramic elements reflect poorly on all ceramic heating elements, which is unfortunate because a well-designed ceramic element is very clean. Top of the line ceramic heating elements are very precise too, although precision is also a function of the circuitry and computer chip technology used with the heating element.

Examples of vaporizers with good ceramic heating elements: VaporBrothers, Phedor and Hotbox

#2: Aluminum

Some of the best vaporizers on the market use aluminum heating elements. Manufacturers say that aluminum is more precise than ceramic elements because it responds faster the temperature changes:

"One reason the Volcano maintains such perfect temperature control is because it uses an aluminum element and block, and aluminum has different properties than potential practical designs using ceramics. An aluminum element and block can more rapidly adjust for effects of air pressure and flow over plant material...the key to vaporization is maintaining control over temperature and flow, which ultimately leads to more perfect control over vapor density."

Critics of vaporizers with aluminum heating elements cite health risks associated with exposure to aluminum, namely an increased risk of Alzheimer's. It is important to note two things here. The first is from the Storz & Bickel FAQ page:

"Q. Does the aluminum heating block emit any substances which are subsequently inhaled by the user?

A. No. the top temperature reached in the heating block 240°C (464°F) is by far below the temperature that is needed to emit any substances out of the aluminum alloy AlMgSi, melting point 660°C (1220°F); boiling point 2519°C (4566°F) used by us. This is documented by an analysis of the air produced by the Volcano on top temperature made by the University of Leiden, Netherlands."

So a well designed aluminum heating elements seem to be quite clean.

As for the increased risk of Alzheimer's: it's hard to be certain whether something does or does not play a role in the development of Alzheimer's because the illness itself is not completely understood, but aluminum does not appear to significantly increase a person's susceptibility. These articles from Scientific American and Alzheimer' discuss this conclusion in depth.

#3: Glass

Glass is basically the same as ceramic when it comes to heating elements. Only one vaporizer with an all-glass heating element is currently available: the Vapolution Vaporizer.

CONCLUSION: Picking a Vaporizer with the Right Heating Element

In the end picking a heating element is a matter of personal choice. Health considerations are paramount for some, while precision may dictate the choices of others. Those worried about health should be advised that the type of plastic hosing used and type of plastic tubing used inside different models are also very relevant, but this is a topic for a different article. The most expensive vaporizers obviously have the best heating elements - this is a large part of what you are paying for - but some mid-range models also offer quite viable (usually ceramic) options. Do a little research before you buy too, it will pay off. Hopefully this article has given you a place to start.

Quit Smoking - Vaping, The New Insane Habi

If you smoke artificial cigarettes you are engaging in the new celebrity trend of Vaping. Apparently it's cool to look stupid in 2015. Most of these Vaping devices deliver nicotine, it would of course be cheaper to buy some nicotine insecticide and just lick the lid.

You might die immediately but it's just a faster way to go than slowly poisoning yourself. In Queensland for good reasons liquid nicotine is illegal so the Vaping is done using Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin Liquid.

Currently there doesn't appear to be any serious risks just throat and mouth inflammation, vomiting, nausea and cough. But think back or Google back:

In the fifties and early sixties cigarettes were considered good for you. Some brands even promoted lung health.

In the early seventies it was discovered that smoking caused stress and didn't solve it. About this time researchers first announced that smoking causes cancer. It took a further eight years before legislators and the medical community agreed to the findings.

Decades later well informed people are still taking up smoking in spite of all the known information. The point of this historical background is that Vaping is an unknown quantity. We know it causes mild problems, but the question is given the history of smoking, why on earth would you want to become just a potential statistic in the history of Vaping.

In the words of Wikipedia currently the limited evidence suggests that e cigarettes are safer than traditional cigarettes, and they carry a risk of addiction for those taking up the habit.

So safer than cigarettes is like saying that falling of a motor cycle at 100 mph is safer with a helmet on! Which brings me back to the title of Vaping, the new insane habit.

Think of all the fun entertaining things you could do instead of inhaling a combusted chemical into your lungs, which your body has to then find some way of dealing with, hopefully, but then I wonder how many smokers have thought the same thing in the past.

Most of the Vaping devices which are promoted to me on the internet come from China, not perhaps the most reliable of chemical sources. Given the numbers of people who are taking up e smoking I'm probably just banging my head on the wall trying to save a few people from themselves.

Maybe I'll just develop the all new Vaping hypnosis programme for when those who still inhale, wish they didn't!

And now for more free info on how to easily and quickly quit cigarettes Ian Newton invites you to go to []

Wishing you the best of health Ian Newton

Depersonalization Induced by E-Cigarettes and Vaping

There are many triggers linked to feelings of depersonalization and derealization but lately a high rate of reactivity to Vaping is reaching noticeable levels.

Symptoms of Vaping Use include:

- Feelings of Unreality and Detachment

- Severe Anxiety leading to Panic Attacks

- Severe Chest Pains when Breathing (which stop when use is discontinued)

- Lightheadedness, often extreme

- Racing Heart, Palpitations

- Insomnia

- Sweating and Irritability

- Excitability

- Inability to Concentrate

Recovery from Symptoms

1 - Discontinue Vaping

The symptoms often abate when usage is discontinued with the exception of those who become sensitized to these reactions, creating further symptoms until they learn to interrupt the process of fearful worry.

It's essential that the individual recognizes the trigger and makes a choice concerning their health. Through proper approach one is able to interrupt the habit of fearful worry and allow a sensitized body to calm down, and a tired mind to refresh.

Application of the correct process is crucial for the fatigued mind to rejuvenate and a full return to clarity. One learns to interrupt this habit of fearful behavior and step out of one's own way. The process is simple to use but requires strict adherence by the individual.

2 - Begin the Process of Self Nurturing

Proper diet must be applied that creates a less reactive mind and body through naturally increased Serotonin levels in the brain and Stable Blood Sugar levels in the body.

Daily activity and exercise outdoors also boosts Serotonin levels in brain.

3 - Retrain the Brain to quiet the mind naturally rather than exacerbate the behavior of fearful thinking.

Learn how to train the mind to think correctly through a specific process which eliminates the habit of fearful thinking. This is not difficult but requires a different mindset that brings forth relief from these symptoms.

4 - Know Your Reactivity Levels

It's also necessary to realize that some individuals are highly reactive to outside stimuli, created out of Vaping. They contain substances that the reactive individual will find difficult to process and intrusive in their system.

Nicotine is a stimulant that the reactive person is going to process with difficulty.

5 - Find Other Ways to Relax Rather Than Vaping

Choose true methods of relaxation such as:

Proper Breathing, which makes a huge difference in our physical and mental health.

Meditation (short 5 minute meditation is often a great release of tension)





Breathing Correctly

Bottom line, you are in charge of how you feel and you have choices. When the mind and body are signaling you to stop using substances that result in negative reactions, LISTEN. Heed these signals and choose to nurture rather than hinder your body.

Feelings of anxiety and depersonalization are essentially red flags that you are doing something to interfere with proper functioning of both mind and body. It is your choice, always your choice, to create a lifestyle that fuels good health. Make that choice and notice an immediate improvement in both mind and body.

Vape Pen Vs Joints: Smokers Dilemma!

Although rendered "un-hip", e cigs are deemed as uncool but the technology used to create vapes is anything but un-hip! Especially for cannabis users, the technology when paired can be a viable alternative for someone who doesn't like smoking marijuana in a joint. But there are people who don't want to smoke out of a hi-tech glowing straw. For many, rolling a joint works but for others, this tech has proven quite popular. Vaping is an easy way to consume the plant just like a cannabis cigarette. The only difference is, one is powered by a USB port while the other uses a lighter. Both get you there, high and happy!

Vape Pens

The future is here. And for cannabis users, it is an alternative which is beginning to make sense. The e-liquids used in e cigs can be replaced with cannabis oil in the cartridge which uses the same methodology. Some brands even let users grind flowers so it can be utilized in the heating chamber which heats up without burning it. This activates the main ingredient without damaging the device. It is a nerdy way of using herb. Understanding this technology, which isn't complicated by the way, for usage with marijuana was not meant for it in the first place. The classical way of using cannabis has seen a change and with vape pens, its set to go towards even the most unorthodox ways.

Conventional Joints

For millions, this is the way to get high. Some grind it and roll it up using papers which is much safer than regular cigarettes. Using vapes or joints is like asking someone if they prefer automatic or manual transmission vehicles. Each has their own opinion. While many prefer automatic transmission to stick, the same can be said for cannabis users. The perks of rolled joints are they doesn't exhaust until the last puff and do not require the need for batteries to really enjoy the moment. You won't have to run around for the charging cable by virtue of one puff too many. But assembling a joint can be a pain to roll and some people are typically put off by the saliva used for rolling a joint. It's not completely issue-free so, again, it depends on the preference of the individual.

Even though vape fans can enjoy a huge variety of e-juices and e-liquids, there are still long paths to cover. Considering the kind of attention both the industries and sectors attract, there are lots of investigations and studies which need to be carried out in order to assert the long-term effects of both vape pens and cannabis. But for the time being, using a vape to enjoy a little cannabis in a convenient manner will be the most attractive aspect of this not-so-recent technology which is swiftly gaining popularity in the diverse ranks of smokers.
