Nope!Are you a spammer? first post and drop a link and then not come back???
recently purchased blueberry. mostly i purchase things from online vendors! that's why, and it was seems like quality vendor that was the main reasonQuestions:
1) Why did you buy from Canada if you are in the US?
2) "Vapes" is a little too vague.
There is a huge difference in types of devices.
What do you have?
What kind of eliquid?
Flavor, nic level, etc...
Not sure if you mean me but many of us that started vaping to quit smoking have fell down the hobby rabbit hole. Vaping also becoming a hobby of sorts isn't limited to any particular style of vaping. MTL vaper's that use drop in coils also become vaping hobbyists.Leticia and hellcat. When you say hobbyist does that refer in your opinion to all sub ohm vaping/ dtl vaping or do you specifically mean rebuildables?
It is definitely a hobby 4me as well as a nicotine addiction. Seeing as i build n mix even when i have plenty of coils n juice on hand. Yes it is a hobby.Not sure if you mean me but many of us that started vaping to quit smoking have fell down the hobby rabbit hole.

I hate reading all the conflicting information,
makes it so tough to make a decision
Exactly, if vaping nicotine was so dangerous this forum would be full of dead people. Instead our numbers are increasing and our health improving. You don’t have to dig too deep to realize all this negative propaganda put out by “Truth” and others of their ilk, is complete and total bullshit. These sham organizations and the news that reports their “findings” are a complete laughingstock, and lack any credibility whatsoever.don't read it. read the truth.
if its on the news, its fake. people have been vaping for years
. but only in the last 2 months has it become an issue, hmmm. see, there are people that profit from lies and misinformation.
and they don't care who they hurt doing it.

That was having more vg vaped per day than using mtl. Not really harmful if you recognize the sign and are able to switch up. Some people just have reactions to different stuff. No different than coffee being harmful.my breathing improved on mtl
switched to dl
after a few months, got real bad shortness of breath,
had to switch back to mtl to fix it.
so yeah, vaping can harm your health,
I have smoked only 3 cigarettes in my life. Since I'm lazy and didn't wanted to wait to get comfortable with smoking I was wandering how is vaping. A more satisfying activity as it should be, wasn't a surprise at all but after 3 months of vaping id didn't affected me in any way.I still run up to 10 km without noticeing hard breathing problems, I know that 3 months isn't much but my body is very sensitive to changes like this and I still didn't noticed problems.i recenlty purchased vapes i just wanna ask does it effect our health?
It's the clickbait misleading title that's the main problem. Then the moron essentially implies that smoking and vaping have the same long term health effects.Wow almost 8 minutes of a guy saying absolutely nothing of note. But it looked like he may have been in a doctors office so we better listen because we’re meant to think he’s an authority on the issue.
Every day, I see the incessant commercials claiming that all nicotine in vape juice "may contain toxic metal fragments", and claim such metals could be lead, chromium, and nickel. How much truth could be behind these commercials?
Is this something that one might worry about if they buy pre-loaded pods? Or is it something one might worry about from the extraction process of nicotine from tobacco? Or is it all just 100% unadulterated bullshit?
So, someone that vapes at higher temperatures has more to worry about. For instance: I vape at 30 watts, and someone else vapes at 120 watts. The person vaping at 120 watts is taking a higher risk.What you need to be concerned with is the temperatures for each of these different metals. The temps required for these metals to release their toxins is fairly high and needs to be sustained for fairly long times. That said as these metals are heated repeatedly, yes they wear down and so do the temps required.
There is a way to mitigate your risk of these toxins. Change your coils out every so often. Most already manufactured coils you get it is safe to say a general rule of thumb is to swap them every two weeks to month. You can tell when the coil/s start looking gross even after cleaning them.
Some of us who make our own coils and have a bit of knowledge on metals, might make coils last longer. That's us taking our chances. You don't need to even if you start doing your own. You can stick to swapping out coil/s every two weeks to month. This will generally ensure you're not letting the metals wear down and risk getting toxins.
No, it isn't bullshit but it's not the "whole picture" either. It comes from the metals used in the coil/s. See my response above for a bit more fuller picture.
I've not given the "whole picture" either but for the sake of keeping an explanation simple. I've not obscured, or misled either. I may not be able to give you the whole picture as it gets rather technical & me explaining can only go so far, out of my own shortcomings.

Back to the commercials. Unless there is something else to it, they are basically lying. They say "vaping nicotine puts you at risk". They said nothing about vaping 0mg juice, which is what most cloud chasers use. They insinuate the juice with nicotine contains the metals in that sense.
I know, s'okay. Seems my hypothalamus didn't work proper from embryo stage on. Lack of smell because the hormones needed to tell olfactory (your smelling) nerves to grow. There's a few other things entailed, one is yes, I honestly was slightly brain damaged from birth. *grins* I get a kick out of that because I'm MENSA level smart. My wife is smrtr though so she keeps me in line.oooh, that's a shame. i'm sorry. i was just joking, too.
Hello fellow vapers! Haven't been online in a while but thought I'd say "Hey"!Does vaping affect health, yes! Below is part of a post I did last year and I'm sticking to my personal opinion about what I said regarding vaping.
My vaping facts!
Quit cigs after decades of smoking. The last 20 years were non filtered and RYO's. It took me two whole days to completely quit once I started vaping. I only saved about 3K bucks in the first year, this year I've spent 369 bucks on vape products. Cigs are 6.50 a pack in Ohio that combined with my extra health insurance premium of 1,800 / year would have cost me 4,200 bucks a year as a smoker. I could buy a new car on what I'm saving!
Why I'm posting in the heath area.
As a smoker I constantly had bogies, blew my nose throughout the day...that stopped completely in the first month. As a smoker I would occasionally get extremely sharp localized pains in my lungs, a bit like being poked with the end of a pencil...that stopped completely in a few months and has not returned. As a smoker I occasionally had asthma attacks, they have stopped. SOB (shortness of breath) it got really severe the last few years of cigs, improved by maybe 25% (2019 update on SOB, it has now reduced even more than last year) the first year of vaping, and this year another 25%. Nearly forgot, I usually burned my cig fingers at least 2 or 3 times a week...sometimes very badly when the cig stuck to my lips as I tried to pull it away from my mouth. Haven't burned myself 1 single time in 2 years!
What did my Doctor say at my last check up in June? Mouth, throat, etc... looked great, BP 112/70, O2 absorption rate 98%, blood work...all good except PSA numbers. (update on Dr visit: stats are still good and my PSA has dropped by 4 points probably from using Pygeum)
Gee what else? I no longer smell like an ashtray, the air in my house/garage/car has no cig odor, my clothing no longer smells of burnt tobacco. (update on the cig stink: repainted my interior walls and ceiling...cig odor now completely GONE!)
All of the above are MY FACTS on (update:now over 3 years) 2 years of vaping!
Does vaping affect health? It did mine!!!!
Then we get into toxic metals. Do you know what your coil is made out of if you buy prebuilt coils and wicking material? Do you dry fire your own coils or pre-wound coils? Nickel and chromium can form some nasty carcinogenic compounds. Ever see a coil go green after dry firing? That's probably chromium oxide, which is a respiratory carcinogen. The question is; is there enough of it to present significant risk?
