vaping safety around your pets

Vaping and pets: A safety guide

vaping safety around your pets

There are many things that we as humans can safely consume everyday but, sometimes these vast substances that are safe for human consumption, can be toxic to your pets. If you’ve ever taken the time to read your e-juice label you would notice that just like prescription medication there is a warning sticker that states “keep away from children and pets.” This is because most e-juices that vapers use contain nicotine, which if consumed, is incredibly dangerous for the health and safety of your furry friends. So, how do you practice vaping safety around your pets?

What should you be aware of?

Be a responsible owner and a responsible vaper. If you love your pet, a little caution and self-awareness goes a long way. Here are a few things that you can do to ensure that you are practicing vaping safety around your pets.

  • Keep your e-liquids properly stored: Most e-juice bottles are child-proof, but your pets usually have more strength and determination to chew through its packaging. If you keep your bottles stored in a cupboard out of reach when you aren’t using it, then your pet shouldn’t be able to come into contact with it very easily.
  • Vape in a different surrounding then your pet: When you’re vaping, we recommend doing so in a different area then where your pet is. Maybe step outside and take a puff? Or simply have a designated area, like your garage, where the animal doesn’t have access.
  • Charge your e-cigarette somewhere out of reach: Whether you plug it in and store it in a cupboard while it’s charging or you simply shut a door, it’s always a good idea to make sure that your pet isn’t able to pull it down and eat the contents or the device.
  • Never allow your pets to lick your vapor or your e-cig: Although this seems like common sense, since both your vapor and your device can contain traces of nicotine, the safest option is to keep everything away from your pet altogether.
  • Purchase pre-filled flavor cartridges: A pre-filled flavor cartridge decreases the risk of your pet ingesting any nicotine because they possess a spill-proof technology and are easily disposed of after their use.
  • Zero nicotine vaping: Although there is still a possibility of your pet getting sick if they get a hold of your device, at least the dangers of nicotine can be avoided by zero nicotine vaping.

Vaping safety around your pets is incredibly important for their health and well-being. If you suspect that your pet has ingested nicotine take them to your vet straight away.

vapers tongue

What is vapers tongue and how can you prevent it?

vapers tongue

Are you one of those vapers who craves a specific e-liquid flavor? Have you ever been vaping that decadent essence and then suddenly you don’t really like it anymore? Maybe the robust, bold flavor isn’t as sharp as it used to be, or you start to feel a subtle numbness on the tip of your tongue? Well, if you can relate to this in any way, you may possess a condition called vapers tongue. Firstly, it’s important to understand that vapers tongue is not serious or permanent… it’s just annoying. That is why we’re going to explain what it is, how it’s caused and how you can prevent it in the future.

What is vapers tongue?

Vapers tongue is a term that is used to describe a condition where a vaper loses his/her ability to taste certain e-juice flavors. It covers a wide range of subtle, taste-related issues that can range from a person’s inability to taste a single flavor to the loss of their taste for certain foods and drinks. Typically, the condition can last one to three days, but has been known to persist up to two weeks. While vapers tongue doesn’t affect the nicotine absorption or vapor production, it does greatly affect the flavor experience for the vaper.

Why do some vapers experience vapers tongue?

Our tongues possess anywhere from 2,000 to 8,000 taste buds which are constantly developing and regenerating and our sense of taste relies on saliva to continue the process. Sometimes hardcore vapers dry mouth out their mouths by simply vaping too much and not being aware of their salivation levels.  

Another factor that contributes to vapers tongue is flavor fatigue. Your sense of smell and taste work together to create your own personal flavor perception. Most people have the ability to taste things that are sweet, bitter, sour, salty and umami (a category of taste that reflect broths and cooked meats). However, when you do not give your body a chance to experience an array of tastes with distinguishing characters, it can lose its ability to detect it.

Finally, smoking combustible cigarettes can also contribute to your onset of vapers tongue. If you’ve recently quit, your ability to taste and smell has been hindered and will require a bit of time to regenerate.

So, how do you prevent vapers tongue?

  • Drink more water: H2O with get your saliva pumping and keep your mouth from getting dry.
  • Cut back on your caffeine and alcohol consumption: These types of beverages tend to dehydrate your body.
  • Regularly clean your tongue: This may seem like a no brainer but brushing your tongue helps with your flavor palettes.
  • Quit smoking: It’s one of the best things you can do for your health.
  • Switch up your e-juices: Change up your flavors, mess around with your taste buds and enjoy all of aromas of vaping.
  • Take vaping breaks: Give your flavor and smell receptors a little break and take more time between your vaping sessions.

oral health

Can vaping stain your teeth?

oral health

Many people make the switch from smoking combustible cigarettes to vaping because they want to take control of their health. The effects of smoking on the body are no mystery the more you smoke, the more damage is done to your circulation, heart, brain, lungs, stomach, skin, mouth and bones. The good news is, many of the above health problems have the ability to rapidly start repairing themselves when you toss out your pack of cigarettes. Although it’s easier said than done, switching to vaping offers a plethora of health benefits to people that are having trouble battling their nicotine addiction. However, oral health and appearance also benefit from the lifestyle change. Switching to vaping aids in getting rid of your bad cigarette breath, yellowish fingernails and can even prevent your teeth from staining yellow.

How does vaping impact your oral health?

Studies suggest that vaping actually improves the state of your oral health. This is because vapor is mainly steam, being that e-liquid only contains up to five prime ingredients — PG (depending on the brand), VG, flavoring, water and nicotine (depending on the vaper) — unlike traditional cigarettes that contain over 4000 chemicals, including tar, which is the prime additive that is known to stain the teeth of those who smoke.

However, that doesn’t mean that vaping is completely risk free when it comes to your oral health. Research suggests that nicotine also has the ability to give your pearly whites a yellow tinge. Although nicotine is colorless, when it’s combined with oxygen molecules, it also can become slightly yellow in color. So, if you want your teeth to remain stain free, over time you will need to wean yourself off of your craving for nicotine and vape zero nicotine products instead.  

How else can you avoid staining your teeth?

It’s a wise idea to cut back on your intake of coffee, tea and wine as well as anything else that contains artificial colorings. Also, cleaning your teeth twice a day, flossing and visiting the dentist at these twice a year for a routine checkup will help keep your teeth sparkling.

However, vaping products are not subject to this additional taxes which make them a more economic choice when you are trying to put away some extra savings.

e-cigarette starter kit

A few beginner vape mistakes to avoid

e-cigarette starter kit

The internet has a wealth of information available to us, but it can be difficult to know where to look for reliable, unbiased advice. That being said, when it comes to e-cigarettes, there is never a lack of access to readable material, but there can be a shortage when it comes to factual data. So, that’s why we’ve crafted you a list of beginner vaping mistakes to avoid. That way you can Invest in a good quality device, properly maintain it and select the appropriate nicotine strength in order to enhance your vaping experience. Now, let’s get started.

How do you select a vaping device?

There are so many different e-cigarettes on the market and picking the best option for you can be a daunting task. We recommend selecting an e-cigarette that is simple and powerful but also possesses commanding reviews. Sometimes purchasing an e-cigarette starter kit is the best way to go because it includes everything you need when you start vaping — the device, a couple state-of-the-art batteries, a few flavor cartridges and a straightforward charging cable. Usually, an e-cigarette starter kit also possesses an easy-to-assemble technology, with disposable flavor capsules that twist onto your battery effortlessly. In the beginning, we recommend that you purchase pre-filled cartridges rather than filling your own device.

Why should you maintain your device?

The maintenance of your e-cigarette is pertinent in the longevity of the product. Although a relatively easy task, many vapers neglect their device maintenance and end up replacing it rather quickly. We suggest that as a first-time vaper you get in the habit of keeping your device clean. Wiping down the outer services is a good start, but in order to keep it operating in top condition, you will also need to wipe down the mouthpiece and the connection between your cartridge and your battery terminal.

Another way to ensure that your device is well maintained is by storing it safely away from any sunlight, extreme temperatures or potential water damage. An e-cigarette case is a functional way to store your gear and it also gives you the room that you need to store any extra flavor cartridges. Needless to say, it keeps everything in one easy-to-access arrangement. Keep e-cigarette maintenance a part of your daily routine and you’ll find that down the road you won’t have as many issues with your leading-edge technology.

How do you select a nicotine strength?

Many e-cigarette flavor cartridges or vapor juices give vapors the option of selecting a nicotine strength. This strength should be determined based on your combustible cigarette smoking habits. If you were once a heavy smoker, 2.4% nicotine strength and above should fulfill your nicotine craving, but if you were an occasional, lighter smoker than 1.2% nicotine strength would be a good fit for you. For people who are more addicted to the habitual feeling of having something in their hands, rather than the physical need for nicotine, most companies also offer a zero nicotine option. This would give you all the flavor and sensational aspects that you miss about smoking, without any added nicotine concentration.

We hope that this guide will help you as you set out on your vaping journey.

Vaping safety: The ultimate guide of do’s and don’ts

vaping safety

If you’re anything like us, an e-cigarette is a ritualistic aspect of your everyday life. Naturally, that means that understanding how to safely operate your vaping device should be equally as important as knowing the latest vaping technique trends. Just like any other electronic device that you own, if not used appropriately, an e-cig has the potential to malfunction. Needless to say, providing well-versed knowledge is one of our top priorities. Therefore, we have configured this list to help you learn a little more about how to continue your lifestyle, all while considering everyday vaping safety.

Only use your e-cigarette charger

It’s incredibly important to not interchange your original charger with a charger from another electronic accessory. The authentic charging cable that you were given with your device was designed to consider the voltage regulations and battery capacity of your particular e-cig. By swapping various chargers between your electronic devices, the charging capability of the cables can become greatly affected. It would be a major disappointment if your device died halfway through the day just because the charger you chose to use wasn’t able to provide enough power.

Inspect your batteries

Although incredibly rare and unlikely, studies have show that electronic cigarette explosions are almost always a result of the neglectful care of the devices battery.

We recommend that you regularly inspect your batteries to see if they are damaged, wet or have been overcharged. It’s also important to make sure that you aren’t mixing different brands of batteries, batteries with various charging capabilities, or any old and new batteries together. Be smart by ensuring that you are vaping safely with a high-quality battery that was built to be used by your state-of-the-art device.

Store your device

You will not only be able to protect your e-cig from extreme temperatures and prolonged sun exposure by investing in a sturdy storage case, but you will also keep your device clean when you keep it packed away in a drawer or cupboard. Keep in mind that a carrying case is a functional way to carry your device around, instead of unsafely storing it in the pocket of jeans or purse.  

Be aware of spillage

Many vaporizer brands sell e-liquid that is designed to be added to an electronic cigarette tank by the user. While this form of vaping possesses its own advantages, vapers do need to be careful when they fill their tanks in order to avoid spilling. As most e-liquid contains nicotine, children and pets have the potential to accidentally ingest the fluid, which can be incredibly fatal even in small doses.

Needless to say, an easy, safe alternative for parents and pet owners is to purchase pre-filled flavor cartridges for your device. They are packed with flavor, offered in various nicotine strengths and are easily interchanged.

e-cig maintenance

Important things to remember when maintaining your e-cig

 e-cig maintenance

You can own the absolute best electronic cigarette on the market and only use a top-of-the-line e-juice, but without the proper e-cig maintenance, your device will suffer wear, tear and exhaustion. Needless to say, in order to keep your vaping accessories in tip-top condition, you will need to perform regular e-cig maintenance and cleaning to ensure a long lifespan of your personal vaping gadget. Lucky for you, the upkeep of this fantastic technology is super easy and extremely beneficial.

Purchase pre-filled cartomizers

If you possess an electronic cigarette that requires the e-juice to be refilled often, you run the risk of dry burning your device. Simply put, if the liquid levels run too low, the device can burn out. On the other hand, if you purchase a state-of-the-art device that doesn’t require manual refills, you can simply pop on a new pre-filled flavor cartridge without worrying about burning out your device.

If you prefer to refill your own device, or simply enjoy mixing your own flavors, just remember to keep an eye on your e-liquid levels to ensure that your e-cig never reaches empty.  

Clean your device

Just like the maintenance of all your electronic gadgets, wiping, cleaning and disinfecting should be part of your regular e-cig maintenance. Start by disconnecting your flavor cartridge from the e-cig battery. Take a cotton swab to the device, ensuring that any dust or debris is wiped away, especially along the mouthpiece. This is also a very effective way to ensure that you will get the full lifespan of your e-cig battery.

Properly store your device

Naturally, electronic devices collect dust and are affected by any change in room temperature. That being said, if you leave your e-cig out in the elements (in direct sunlight or in a warm room), you are not optimizing the lifespan of your device. The best way to have minimal e-cig maintenance is by storing your device in a case that keep can it clean and out of the sun. Once in the case, place it in a cooler, yet still accessible part of your home, such as a cupboard, drawer or closet.
