What’s been happening in the world of vaping?
E-cigarettes have been getting more and more popular as people start to move away from smoking. We’ve been in the business since 2014, and during that time we have seen lots of different trends.
We saw the rise of the mod and the development of the cleito tank. Then there have been new devices, DIY e-liquids, cloud chasing and everything in between. In this blog, we are going to look at e cigarette trends of 2021 through to 2022 to see what is new.
E Cigarettes Nic Salts
Nic salts are designed for those looking to enjoy high nicotine consumption. If you are looking to curb cravings for longer, or get a higher dose of nicotine, then salts are for you. The salts are blended with the e-liquid and absorbed into the bloodstream better than the standard nicotine e-liquid.
Nic salts are the same form of nicotine that you find in tobacco. However, this doesn’t mean they are harmful, nicotine carries fewer toxins than tobacco. Remember, it is the tobacco that contains the cancer-causing chemicals.
Squonk Mod Kits
Squonk mod kits are a drippers dream. It is a device with a built-in squeezy bottle at the bottom that feeds into the RDA. You squeeze the bottle to feed the e-liquid onto the atomizer or squonk ready RDA.
Those who drip through the mouthpiece will enjoy using a squonk mod. It is less messy and easier to squonk on the go than it is to drip. It also means that you don’t need to carry bottles of juice around with you, saving you space in your pockets.
It is a more advanced bit of kit for those who know about oHms law and resistance, but it is simple.
Pod style vape kits evolve
Pods are like the vamped up starter kits from years gone by. Some are closed pod systems which means you have to replace the entire pod everytime the coil goes or juice runs out. Others are refillable, which means you can top them up with your own choice of liquid and replace the coil.
When we first saw pods come to the market in 2019, they were very basic. Now you can get something called a pod mod, which is a small pod like device with the power that is comparable to a mod. Take the VooPoo Vinci 18650 pod mod which is capable of powering up to 70W and has an external 18650 battery.
A pod can still be simple though. Check out the Caliburn range from Uwell. They provide a satisfying and flavoursome vape and are more suited to someone looking for a discrete kit.
CBD electronic cigarette liquid
CBD is one of the fastest-growing industries. More people are seeing the benefits of using the cannabinoid to help with various ailments and conditions. These include anxiety, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, epilepsy, menopause and period pains, symptoms, pain, inflammation and more.
Vaping CBD is the most bioavailable way to enjoy the cannabinoid, meaning it gets into your system the fastest. The best devices for CBD electronic cigarette liquid are more basic kits, such as pods. This is because CBD e-liquid is high PG and thin, so is likely to leak out of a big tank.
We’ve seen a big uptake of this product in the last year, and we don’t see it slowing down!
Vaping Danger Scares
Unfortunately, one e cigarette trend of 2019 was vaping danger scares. These scares include popcorn lung and mysterious lung disease.
We have spoken about and debunked the popcorn lung myth many times on our blogs and videos.
Watch our video below to learn more.
Thankfully, 2020 and the start of 2021 hasn’t seen such scares!
In terms of mysterious lung disease, this has come from people vaping THC cartridges. THC is the psychoactive part of the cannabis plant and is illegally sold.
Currently, it is being sold in cartridges for people to vape. However, when you illegally buy something like this you cannot be 100% sure what is in it and if anything has been added. It is best avoided!
Trends of 2022
We’re looking forward to seeing what 2022 has in store for us!
