Concerned about vaping? We realize that when you are new to vaping some things may seem strange or plain scary. That’s why we’ve decided to clear up some scary Google searches and give you the answers!
Can lungs heal after vaping?
Yes, absolutely! If you are vaping rather than smoking, you’re already one step ahead of the curb.
That being said, your lungs are capable of healing from everything like smoke, pollutants, and to that effect, vape. Even though it is proven that vaping is 95% safer than smoking, you may still experience some discomfort such as shortness of breath. While it’s rare (especially in comparison to combustion cigarettes) e-cigarettes can make you feel like you are not using your lungs to their full capacity. Within a month of quitting you can experience improvements such as deeper breaths, less coughing, and better lung capacity.
If you are, however, contemplating between smoking and vaping, there is no doubt vape is far less harmful than traditional combustion smoking.
Is it bad to get vape juice in your mouth?
While getting a little vape juice in your mouth is no reason for concern, too much can indeed be harmful. That is especially true if you vape e-liquids that contain nicotine. While nicotine-free vape liquids have ingredients that are found in food, nicotine is what can cause poisoning. The higher the nicotine content the more dangerous ingesting it is.
No matter if you get a little or a lot of vape juice in your mouth, always spit it out.
How to avoid getting juice in your mouth when vaping?
The occasional drop aside, you shouldn’t be experiencing regular leaks. As we’ve already established, ingesting vape liquid can be harmful and dangerous.
One reason you’re experiencing leaking may be because you’re not allowing enough time for your tank to warm up. If you’re taking drags immediately after refilling the tank, there is a high chance you’ll experience some leaking. After the vape has warmed up, try making your first few drags shorter and lighter to make sure the liquid is vaporizing as it should.
Another reason you may be you are over-filling your tank or not filling it properly. Ask an expert, someone at your local vape shop, or go to YouTube for a tutorial.
Also not at all unlikely is that your hardware’s o-rings are overtightened. The o-rings are the tiny rubber rings inside your e-cigarette. When they are too tight, they can no longer provide you with a good seal. If they aren’t keeping the e-juice from getting out - you’ll get some juice in your mouth.
It’s also not a bad idea to know what juice works best for your machine – higher PG or VG content e-liquid? You can learn more about the difference between the two in our WHAT IS IN VAPE JUICE? post.
Is vaping bad for the skin?
Vaping is less harmful than smoking in every aspect and skin health is another example.
Many ex-smokers report a significant improvement to their skin appearance and overall health when switching to vaping. You can start noticing recovery as soon as in the first month since making the change.
Keep in mind that research has shown that nicotine accelerates skin aging and delays wound healing. That’s why it’s always worth trying to lower your nicotine consumption – something that is far easier done with vaping.
