If you change the liquid in the e-cig to a non-nicotine liquid, is it the same as a shisha pen?

If you change the liquid in the e-cig to a non-nicotine liquid, is it the same as a shisha pen?

Dont understand ?: electronic cigarettes are all essentially the same. They have a heating chamber that either uses a chemical reaction or electricity to heat the contents to a level that releases the underlying substance as a vapor, generally without many of the other organic compounds ("tars") which are released when the substance is combusted (smoked). You can use any of these products with non-nicotine product. ...Read more

If you change the the liquid in the e-cig to a non nicotine liquid don't u just have a shisha pen?

It's possible: You could argue that from a marketing standpoint that it's a shisha or hookah pen. However, there may be other ingredients in the non nicotine liquid that may be harmful, so you would have to rely on the word and accurate labeling of the manufacturer. ...Read more

Can asthmatics smoke the e cig i dont smoke but i heard it helps asthma ppl put eucalyptus liquid in it is this true?

Can asthmatics smoke the e cig i dont smoke but i heard it helps asthma ppl put eucalyptus liquid in it is this true?

No: In fact, it tends to irritate the lungs and the jury is still out as to whether it still poses harm to the airways. My gut feeling it is e cig will likely be less harmful than smoking but not totally harmless. It certainly does not help asthma. ...Read more

Could a e-cig give you cancer even if the liquid doesn't have nicotine in it?

Could a e-cig give you cancer even if the liquid doesn't have nicotine in it?

Nobody knows: There are zero studies of e-cigs, and nobody knows what they will do, even with no nicotine. Nicotine is not the cause of cancer anyway - it is the complex hydrocarbons (tars) in the smoke. It is likely that e-cigs will prove safer than smoked cigarettes, but again, nobody really knows. The propellant in these gadgets is propylene glycol, and nobody knows what inhaling them, or the oils, will do. ...Read more

What if I use a electronic cigarette without the liquid containing irritants, is it a good idea for steam inhalation to decongest nose and lungs ?

What if I use a electronic cigarette without the liquid containing irritants, is it a good idea for steam inhalation to decongest nose and lungs ?

What is it you are: Going to volatilize if you are not using the liquid provided for the e-cigarette? There are versions that essentially give you water vapor. The problem is that nobody has studied the effects of the propylene glycol that is used as a propellant, or whatever preservatives, additives, flavorings etc. That are in these. If you are not using a cartridge, am not sure you can even activate the device. ...Read more

Blu electronic cigarette bad for health?

Blu electronic cigarette bad for health?

Yes: the question isn't whether they are harmful - nicotine is addictive, causes blood vessels to constrict and reduces blood flow to heart, brain and vital organs, and is what causes the vascular problems related to smoking. There are less "tars, " but nobody knows what the propellant (propylene glycol), flavorings, preservatives and other additives do, either short-term or long-term at this point. ...Read more

Can I have some tips on buying a e-cig vaporizor?

Can I have some tips on buying a e-cig vaporizor?

Not from me: I have not decided yet that using e-cigs is really a "harm reduction" method I should embrace, and help my patients choose ones that have been proven to best do that. However, the companies have not published studies of any of their products, and can't be required to, per the supreme court. A product that allows you to dial back the nicotine to reduce use, or those without nicotine might be best. ...Read more
