In our increasingly health-conscious society, a growing number of people want to make sure they understand exactly what they are allowing to enter their bodies via consumption. As new information comes to light about the content of cigarette tobacco, more smokers are considering electronic cigarettes as an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes.
E-Cig E-Liquid vs. Cigarette Tobacco: Comparing Ingredients
The fact remains that electronic cigarettes contain far fewer chemicals than traditional cigarette offerings, and most of those chemicals are widely accepted already. Today, we will discuss exactly what is in e-cigarettes, providing you with the peace of mind you need while you make the transition to this alternative form of nicotine delivery.
The Many, Many, MANY Chemicals in Cigarette Tobacco
Before we jump into the ingredients of electronic cigarettes, let’s take a quick look at the ingredients that make up cigarette tobacco.
There are tons of chemicals in a single tobacco cigarette, from the chemicals added to the tobacco itself to the chemicals that make up the paper surrounding the tobacco. Now, when we say there are tons of chemicals in tobacco cigarettes, we mean THOUSANDS, so we won’t get into the details of all of them; however, here is a quick breakdown of the most harmful chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes:
- Benzene – commonly used in pesticides and gasoline
- Cyanide – also used in pesticides and has historically been used as a chemical weapon
- Carbon Monoxide – a poisonous, colorless and odorless gas most commonly known to be emitted from vehicle exhaust
- 2,3-Butanedione – Commonly known as diacetyl, the inhalation of 2,3-Butanedione has been linked to a rare but severe lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans, also known as “popcorn lung”
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s compare these to the ingredients that make up the e-liquids used in electronic cigarettes.
So, What’s in E-Cigarette “Juice”?
Electronic cigarettes contain a small number of ingredients compared to combustible tobacco cigarettes. The primary ingredients used in e-liquids are propylene glycol and glycerol, which are often used for food colorings and mouthwash. These substances are used as a carrier for nicotine and are responsible for creating the vapor produced from an electronic cigarette. Unlike other harmful substances found in tobacco cigarettes, propylene glycol is not considered a cancer-causing agent. Furthermore, it has been thoroughly evaluated by government agencies and scientists who agree that it is safe for use in a variety of beauty and health-based products.
Of course, electronic cigarettes would not be complete without the addition of nicotine. The difference is: Electronic cigarettes allow users to choose their individual nicotine levels, which make them far more flexible than the traditional alternative. E-cig users can even go for a nicotine-free option if they no longer wish to consume nicotine but still enjoy vaping. White Cloud e-liquids are available in an array of nicotine levels measured in percentages (NBV or Nicotine By Volume), to offer vapers of all varieties the best level of nicotine to suit their needs.
Finally, up to 10 percent of the ingredients in e-liquids consists of flavorings. These regulatory-approved flavorings are the same components you will find in packaged foods and snacks you can buy in any grocery store.
