How does an electronic cigarette work?

The electronic cigarette is an electronic device which heats liquid to create a vapour – without combustion – which is then inhaled.An electronic cigarette is typically composed of a battery and an atomizer, the latter being comprised of a resistor and a cotton wick (also known as a coil) soaked with the liquid to be vaporized.The battery generates an electric current, often adjustable via a display screen or a button, which flows into the atomizer to reach the resistor; wound around a cotton wick impregnated with liquid, the resistor heats up and vaporizes the liquid, producing vapour.Our electronic cigarettes are ‘cartridge system’ devices (alsoknown as ‘capsules’ or ‘pods’), meaning that the atomizer, resistor and cotton are contained within one single unit. ANYX Vaping device is compatible with its prefilled and refillable pods, so users can choose their favorite flavors from ANYX or fill any other e-liquid purchased elsewhere. 

What is the liquid vaporized in an e-cigarette?

The liquid to be vaporized, widely known as ‘e-liquid’ or ‘e-juice’, is typically made up of a mix of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), water and different additives.Vegetable glycerin creates vapour when heated, whilst propylene glycol helps bind additives within the liquid, allowing them to be vaporized also. E-liquids can also be mixed with nicotine, or other flavourings and aromas (tobacco, mint, fruit, sweets and cakes, ice cream, soda and candy flavourings).Nicotine is most commonly added to e-liquids in its purified form, known as ‘base-nicotine’. Nicotine can, however, also be found in e-liquids in the form of ‘nicotine salts’, a form which is closer to its natural chemical state and which recreates thesensation of nicotine derived from a traditional tobacco cigarette.ANYX only works with top level E-liquid suppliers, who supply premium E-liquid made by USP grade PG/VG imported from DOW, P&G, and flavor concentrates from IFF, TFA, etc. 

Can an e-cigarette help me stop smoking?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions surrounding e-cigarettes: can vaping aid in the fight against tobacco smoking?On one hand, one must remember that the electronic cigarette is not recognized as a medicine (unlike nicotine patches and other smoking cessation products sold in pharmacies). However, vaping can help recreate the sensation of smoking a tobacco cigarette. Having reached mass-distribution in approximately 2010, the electronic cigarette is only still in its infancy. It has not yet been recognized as a pharmaceutical product and it has not yet been conclusively proven that the electronic cigarette can aid with stopping smoking. That said, a great many people insist that with the help of an electronic cigarette they have succeeded in reducing their tobacco intake and have even stopped smoking tobacco entirely.

Is vaping hazardous and what are its effects on health?

A number of studies on the subject have reached contradictory conclusions, and the scientific community has not yet ruled definitively on the subject.Whilst the use of nicotine in e-liquids can affect brain development, especially amongst those below the age of 25, the liquids vaporized contain none of the toxic substances found in regular tobacco cigarettes, such as tar and carbon monoxide.Regarding the additives and flavourings, many are widely recognized as harmless within the agri-food industry, although few studies account for their effect on the body which inhaled. It is difficult therefore to speak conclusively on the subject in the absence of any long-term studies on the ingredients used and their effects when ingested through vaping.A scientific consensus exists, however, that vaping is less harmful than tobacco smoking; conventional cigarettes have been proven to exhibit many toxic effects on human health.Even though it is difficult to quantify precisely the long-term toxicity of electronic cigarette use, evidently it is infinitely less than that of traditional cigarettes.

Who can use an electronic cigarette?

Electronic cigarettes are designed to be used by adults over 18 years of age.Pregnant women and those who suffer from heart problems should consult with their physician before starting vaping with nicotine or other substances.People allergic to nicotine should only vape nicotine-free e-liquids.
