WHAT IS AN E CIGARETTE OR PERSONAL VAPING DEVICE?

  • A Personal Vapourizer or PV (otherwise known as an electronic cigarette, or e-cig) is an electrical device that simulates the act of tobacco smoking by producing an inhaled mist bearing the physical sensation, appearance, and often the flavour and nicotine content of inhaled tobacco smoke.
  • The device uses heat to vapourize a propylene glycol or glycerin-based liquid solution into an aerosol mist, similar to the way a nebulizer or humidifier vapourizes solutions for inhalation.
  • They may or may not look anything like a regular tobacco cigarette but the point is no combustion is involved and it contains no tobacco so (nicotine is optional) the risks of smoking are completely removed.
