What Is Vaping?
Vaping simply put is the act of converting e-liquid into vaping. The process of converting e-liquids has traditionally meant feeding power into a coil (a specific type of wire wound into loops) which in turn heats around cotton, or other materials used to absorb e-liquid. E-liquid itself can either contain nicotine or not, and e-liquid consists of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. Propylene glycol is a flavor carrier and typically what flavoring in e-liquid is diluted from, propylene glycol provides a harsher sensation on the throat and has been known to trigger allergies in a percentage of vapers. Vegetable glycerin is primarily an agent that produces larger cloudage and is of a thicker consistency. VG, as it is known, has a smoother throat sensation and is naturally sweet. Most liquids in the sub ohm era (sub 1.0 ohm of resistance in your coil naturally have a lower PG ratio as the kick or harshness of PG at those levels can be a very unpleasant experience.
Vaping can be achieved through numerous types of devices which we will cover in future guides. These devices can range from simple over the counter disposable devices to more advanced technology that requires assembly and maintenance on your part.
