A Vape (electronic cigarette) vaporizes a liquid that contains a mixture of flavors and other substances. The liquid, or e-liquid, is heated to create vapor that the user can inhale. The liquid does not contain tobacco, like a regular cigarette, but often contains nicotine. The Vape is available in all kinds of models and flavors. A specific type of Vape is the shishapen. This mimics the taste of a water pipe (shisha). A shishapen contains no tobacco and usually no nicotine.

What is your correct Vape
But nothing is less true. Unfortunately, you cannot buy every Vape that you like or think is suitable. At many web shops and unfortunately also at many stores you get the wrong advice. We’ve mentioned it before, there are no bad Vapes but bad advice. If you buy an Vape that is not suitable for you, you will not be able to overcome smoking with this either.
Less unhealthy than regular cigarette
Less harmful substances are released with an Vape than with a regular cigarette, and in lower concentrations. In all likelihood, an Vape is less unhealthy than a regular cigarette. However, we do not yet know what harmful effects an Vape has with long-term and structural use.
The flavors in an Vape give a nice taste and mask the bitter taste of nicotine. Young people find the Vape especially attractive because of the wide choice of (especially sweet) flavors. Tobacco smokers just starting out with Vapes especially appreciate the tobacco flavors and the experience that resembles smoking a regular cigarette. For non-smokers, an Vape can be a stepping stone to normal smoking.
Sometimes helpful in quitting smoking
For some people, an Vape is an effective smoking cessation aid. However, most Vape users also continue to smoke tobacco. People often use nicotine Vapes as a smoking cessation aid. There is then a risk that they will remain addicted to Vapes after they have stopped smoking. Or continue to combine the Vape with regular tobacco.
Some e-liquids contain nicotine salts. These make the vapor less bitter and sharp in taste than regular (‘freebase’) nicotine. This makes it easier for users to inhale large amounts of nicotine. Nicotine salts may also be absorbed into the body more quickly, enhancing its addictiveness.
