People having switched from conventional cigarettes to electronic ones are discussing benefits and possible drawbacks of using new devices. Online forums are full of enthusiastic reviews about how well-being has improved, stamina increased, etc. Many former smokers manage to successfully combine vaping and sports.

According to most vapers, there is nothing to be feared. Had a stressful day? Make a couple of puffs, relax, clear your head of unpleasant thoughts, and then you can go to the gym to be in shape. Is it so? What advice can experienced vapers give?

Benefits of Vaping

With the invention of vaping, many have changed their attitude towards tobacco smoking. Part of the smokers switched to electronic devices, feeling an improvement in their health. If one studies Internet forums, social media groups and chats, consults experts, one interesting fact will probably be noticed – vapers almost never report any problems with respiratory system.

And former smokers with an experience of at least 5-7 years claim that after switching to e-cigarettes for several months, the following symptoms have disappeared:

  • excruciating cough;
  • feeling of pressure in the lungs during exercise;
  • dyspnea;
  • bad breath;
  • excessive sputum.

Most of the vapers claim that after giving up usual smoking and starting vaping, they have increased their endurance. Such statements are made by people involved in cardio trainings. They also note the restoration of the respiratory system and the cardiovascular system. .

5 Tips To Help Combine Vaping And Sports

Here some essential tips for the vapers who want to combine vaping with sports. It turned out to be quite an interesting list:

  1. Do not vape immediately before, during and after the training. Try to refrain from using an electronic cigarette 2-3 hours before and after your visit to the gym. True sports fans generally refuse to vape on the day of training.
  2. Reduce the amount of nicotine. Most vapers advise to use a device with a liquid marked from 1 to 3.  In such a way you reduce a possible impact of toxic element on the body, making sports activities more productive.
  3. Drink more clean water. A high concentration of glycerin in the liquid for vaping can lead to dehydration. Try to compensate for liquid loss by drinking at least 1,5 liters of water per day.
  4. Make gradual increase in loads. Withdrawal of nicotine over time leads to weight gain. To maintain the shape, try to gradually increase the load in the hall.
  5. Keep track of your health. Be sure to measure the pulse before and after training. If during physical exertion there is dizziness or darkness in the eyes, check blood pressure.

There is also one important observation from professional athletes who vape. The composition of the vaping liquid affects the well-being during workout. Try to choose liquids without strong flavours, and without nicotine. Remember that labeling on flacons is optional. Even a premium “three” juice can provoke some cough, a discharge of colorless sputum, or dyspnea.

Is Vaping Harmful: What Science Says

22 Sep

Experts believe that the denial of smoking in favor of vaping in the long term leads to a significant reduction in the use of tobacco-related carcinogens and toxins. Regular smoking цas long viewed as normal, but is in fact harmful. Vaping, on the other hand, seems as harmful as smoking, but in fact is not.

Brits for Vaping

The UK National Health Service claims that electronic cigarettes are significantly better for smokers. In their anti-tobacco campaign, service representatives assert that vaping devices do not produce resins and carbohydrate monoxide, because they do not have combustion processes and produce no smoke.

British scientists came to the conclusion that electronic cigarettes are safer than ordinary ones. The corresponding study was published in one of the well-respected journals. It stipulates that experts measured the consumption of harmful concomitant substances by those who use nicotine patches, electronic, and conventional cigarettes. This analysis shows that in the end, smoking of electronic cigarettes is equivalent to the use of nicotine patches. The doctors suggest refusing smoking in general, but they recommend starting this process with the transition to vapes.

New Facts

Today’s research on electronic cigarettes does not allow us to come to an unambiguous conclusion about their benefit or harm. Here are some general ideas:

  • It is known that the main danger of vaping lies in flavoring liquids: the thermal decomposition leads to the release of somewhat toxic substances. But contaminated air we breathe in cities is not clearer at all. Also, some advanced models of vapes allow to regulate the temperature.
  • Nicotine in measurable dosages is not specifically harmful. Moreover, pure nicotine is used in medicine in the form of flakes to treat not only nicotine dependence but also intestinal diseases. The beauty behind the vaping devices is that smokers can use them without adding nicotine into the juices at all.
  • Resins contained in regular cigarettes are even more harmful than nicotine; they do not cause addiction, but physically block the lung tissues. Vaping liquids contain no resins.
  • The most controversial components are flavors. Their variations make a great number of taste, color and composition, which make thorough researches difficult. However, their ingredients are used in food industry and are not considered harmful.

When you vape, passive smoking is not the case either, so people around you will thank you. Hair, clothes and room do not stink with tobacco smoke. So if you are careful in your vaping and follow general rules, you will not have any problems with well-being.

Where To Buy Quality Vapes

11 May

Newbie vapers are usually very enthusiastic about new models offered on the market, new flavours of liquids, and new tricks that can be done with a vape. However, there is always a risk to buy a low-quality product and pay money for the device you will not be able to use, or liquid that is not tasty or gives thin steam. Some liquids are utterly disgusting, while others can be even dangerous since mixed ignoring the basic rules. So, if you are not sure where to buy high-quality products for your vaping activities, check four options:

  • buy in a vape shop
  • buy from a reputable website
  • ask a friend
  • buy on a festival

Vape Shops and Vape Bars

The best option is, obviously, go to a vape shop, or even to a vape bar. Often, these are combined as one facility. In a vape bar, you will be able to try and test various liquids from different manufacturers, find out more about new flavours, and experiment with strengths of mixture and thickness of steam. Then, you can go and buy the products you liked best in a vape shop. Some vape bars and shops even rent out different vaping devices for test drive.

Reputable Websites

Google the most well-known manufacturers and the best models of the vaping devices, go straight to their websites, and order from them. The advantage of this method is that you, most likely, won’t overpay for mediators’ services (like vape shops who orders the same device for you), and will get a truly high-quality product. The disadvantages are that, firstly, delivery may cost more that you expected, and secondly, popular models from popular manufacturers may cost a fortune.

Ask a Friend

If you cannot afford or don’t want to spend more buying from manufacturers’ websites, just ask a friend where did he get his device from. Vapers often have their favourite places where they buy all stuff they need. So you will probably be told to visit a small local shop that offers high-quality goods for moderate prices, and this may be the best option of all.

Buy On a Festival

If you, on the other hand, are ready to spend as much as needed to get a high-quality device, perhaps you should consider visiting a specialized festival and buy or order your device there. On vaping festivals, guests can also try new vapes and new liquids, purchase original and high-quality vapes from top manufacturers, and even order unique customized devices that have additional features and functions.

Where Not to Buy

If you really want to avoid fake products, never buy secondhand products and liquids made by people you don’t know. It is better to always buy liquids in closed containers, and avoid homebred geniuses of liquid mixing. Also, never buy device if its cost is unbelievably low; there is definitely something wrong with it.
