Then there are the imaginary toxins that companies scare you with so you will buy their expensive detox product -- these are fake. Dont buy it! eat healthy, stay hydrated.

Are there any side effects, pros or cons using a vape pen without nicotine oil just flavored oil?

Are there any side effects, pros or cons using a vape pen without nicotine oil just flavored oil?

Oil in general ain't great for lungs, and the vehicle used in these vaporizers is propylene glycol, and nobody knows what his does when inhaled either. While it is likely that vaping will not be as bad as smoking tobacco, nobody can say that yet with certainty. ...Read more
