Things You May Not Know About Vaping


Vaping continues to grow in popularity and there is a lot to know about this practice, even for long-time vapers with years of experience. Here is a look at some interesting facts you may not know about e-cigarettes in NC.




Vaping Can Lower Your Insurance


One of the most common questions that is asked when purchasing health or life insurance, is whether or not you smoke. If you do, then your rates are pretty much guaranteed to increase. However, people who vape do not actually smoke and therefore present less of a health risk.


Vapers Can Compete

Cloud competitions are now held throughout the country. In these competitions, vapers stand back to back and duel by blowing clouds as far as they can. Alot of times the contestants use modified custom vapes to get big clouds. The longest cloud ultimately wins. These competitive vapers are referred to as cloud chasers. There are cloud chasing events that even provide prize money for the victors.


Vaping is Being Used to Control Appetite

While eating less is not the primary function of vaping, some people have been known to use it as an appetite suppressant. The flavor in the e liquid helps with this and is being practiced by more and more women.


Vape Was Word of the Year

In 2014, ‘vape’ was named the International Word of the Year by the Oxford Dictionaries, not to be confused with the Oxford English Dictionary. The word ‘vape’ was given that distinction for its rise in popularity and usage.


Vaping TV Commercials are Legal

Television ads featuring tobacco cigarettes were outlawed in 1971, although there is no law against airing a television advertisement for an electronic cigarette.


Vaping Does Not Set off Smoke Alarms

Since there is no actual smoke, the act of vaping will not cause a smoke or fire alarm to activate. Vapers blow out water vapor that is produced by a process within an atomizer.


Vaping Originated in China

A man named Hon Lik was searching for a way to get a dose of nicotine without having to rely on combustion. The end result was the first form of vaping in 2003. While the E-cig was first patented in 1963, many of the products are still made in China.
