Today, vaping has become as popular and the demand for e-cigarettes and vaping-related products is experiencing an all-time high. New sales analytics show that e-cigarettes sales have been steadily increasing year by year, ultimately jumping from 1.5 billion dollars in sales in 2014 to a staggering 3.6 billion dollars as of 2018.

It’s impressive to see how many people have embraced this new approach to smoking, rather than risking the hazards of regular cigarettes. Up until a few years ago, vaping was a rather niche scene, but it is now at the forefront of popular culture, with more and more smokers trading their old cigarette packs in favor of their new vapes. If you are reading this article, you are probably one of the many people who are considering making the switch to vaping. If this is you, keep reading to learn more!

Why make the switch? The short answer is that e-cigarettes are better for your lifestyle. A team of experts in Scotland, led by Professor Jacob George at the University of Dundee, demonstrated that it had been possible to notice measurable improvements on the test subjects moving from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes in just about a month.

Device

Most first-timers approach vaping by purchasing a device, either a closed pod or open system. The problem is that these e-liquids are made in foreign countries without knowing what exactly is in your e-liquid. STEMJUICE is made and formulated in the USA.

e-Juices & Flavors

STEMJUICE flavors include Tobacco, Tobacco mix, Tobacco blend and menthol. This leads us to yet another important point: try different e-liquids, so you can discover one (or more) that you like! Your mileage might vary, and just like different people prefer different types and brands of cigarettes, different vaping users respond well to different e-liquids.

According to recent surveys, 7 out of 10 smokers are looking for ways to reduce their nicotine intake or quit altogether. E-cigarettes can be a transitional phase between smoking regular cigarettes and giving up on the habit for good. Alternatively, it can be a more sustainable replacement for traditional cigarettes. While regular tobacco cigarettes might feature up to 7000 chemicals (including many toxic ones), it is generally easier for e-liquid producers to control the quality of their products. The toxicity of e-cigarettes is dramatically lower than that of regular cigarettes. Scientists affiliated with the Department of Health Behavior (USA), as well as the Queen Mary University of London, UK, analyzed vapors from 12 popular brands of e-cigarettes. Results indicated that toxic substances were anywhere from 9 to 450 times lower than what you would expect to find in regular tobacco cigarette products.

The most hardcore cigarette smokers usually find it highly effective to start with a higher concentration nicotine. As time goes by, they progressively reduce the strength of their e-liquid, going for lower nicotine intakes. Progressing gradually to a lower level of nicotine can be a very effective strategy. STEMJUICE comes in several different concentrations, from salt and free base with non-nicotine options.
