Basic Info About Vaporizing Products

    1.1 What are e-cigarettes and vaporizing products

Vaporizing products like e-cigarettes, vapes, vape pens, e-juice or vape accessories have been introduced many years ago. E-cigarettes gained popularity 20 or 30 years ago when they were globally marketed as “weapons” against smoking. Vaporizers, vape pens, and vape accessories are newer terms that are not that known and popular. If you have an interest in getting to know information about these types of products, then you have come to the right place. Electronic cigarettes are small devices with a heating chamber and battery. They are practically used to deliver the nicotine into the body and thus spare us from all the harmful chemicals (more than 7000 of them according to ACS) from cigarettes into our system. Vaporizers or personal vaporizer products are similar devices to electronic cigarettes that vary in sizes and the way they work. They are the type of e-cigarettes that have gained great attention in recent years as marijuana was legalized for recreational use in 4 states and somewhat legalized in 21 others. Vape Pen is a type of vaporizer. E-juice and vape accessories are supported products that offer unique vaping experience.

    1.2 E-Cigarettes Background

Although they are quite popular for decades they were first introduced back in 1963 and were patented by H.A Gilbert as smokeless non-tobacco cigarettes. However, he failed to commercialize them. It was until the early 2000s when the e-cigarettes gained global attention when Hon Lik, one critically acclaimed, but relatively unknown chemist from China, found the perfect combination of materials to assemble a product that is very similar to the contemporary e-cigarettes. Lik reportedly made the e-cigarette for his father who was a passionate smoker. What made the e-cigarettes popular back in 2006 was the fact that experts and scientist finally approved that there is no carcinogenic smoke in the e-cigarettes.
