Vaping (E-cigarettes)

What is Vaping?

E-cigarettes work by heating an e-liquid solution inside a cartridge and inhaling the vapour.

Vaping contains zero tobacco and does not emit any smoke.

E-liquids mainly consist of pharmaceutical grade nicotine, distilled water, an inert diluent (such as propylene glycol) and flavourings.
