In 1963, Herbert A Gilbert came up with the idea of developing a product that would help people in the process of quitting smoking by the use of a device that would give them the illusion of smoking without the actual tobacco smoke content. He signed scientist the task of developing a patent which they failed to do. It wasn’t until 2004 when a pharmacist by the mane Hon Lik working at the Golden Dragon Holdings Inc. currently under the name Ryan was able to design the actual product which he named an Electronic Cigarette.
What is an Electronic Cigarette?
An electronic cigarette, popularly known as Ecig is a device that is designed like an actual cigar and cigarette, which can be smoked but does not produce smoke or have any contents of tobacco.
How it works
The Ecig comes in a series of parts that are put together in the form of a kit. The kit contains a mouthpiece that is designed in the form of a tube from which one inhales. There is also a containment system where a liquid made from nicotine and propylene or any other base liquid is placed. The liquid goes by the term e-juice. There is the heating system where the fluid is heated and turned to vapor that is inhaled through the mouthpiece. The heating system is powered by a battery that usually is rechargeable in nature. Finally, there is the electronic route through which the heating system and the battery are connected.
These parts are put together in such a way that when one powers the cig and inhales, the liquid is heated to produce the vapor that is smoked in a process called vaping as opposed to what people call smoking.
Where to make a purchase
Currently, there are more than 460 companies that produce Ecig products. One of the most reliable is O2Pur. O2Pur provides a range of products and have a specific flavor that is obtained from blending the mandatory nicotine product with methanol as the base. Their products range in prices but are all relatively affordable and available both online and in their shops in different parts of the country.
O2Pur also provides a starter kit for newbies complete with instructions and lower vapor range products.
