Vaping is quickly becoming the alternative to smoking for many people who want to live a healthier lifestyle. It has been proven that vaping is much less harmful than cigarettes, and it can also be used as an aid in quitting smoking altogether.
This blog post will discuss everything you need to know about vaping and answer the question "How long does vape stay in your body?" We will also go over some of the health benefits that vaping has over regular cigarettes and why vaping might be better for you than regular cigarettes!
Why is Vaping Better Than Smoking Cigarettes?
The vaping industry is still young. Many studies are currently being done to determine the effects and health implications of vaping. After all, it is hard to study something that hasn't been around for a long time. Cigarettes have been smoked for over 200 years, vaping less than 20. And it is still constantly changing and innovating.
The biggest benefit vaping has over regular cigarettes is that vaping does not contain the 4000+ chemicals found in traditional tobacco cigarettes like tar, nicotine, arsenic, ammonia and formaldehyde.
Vaping only contains four ingredients: vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), nicotine and flavorings. These are all considered food grade substances - all of them considered safe for use by the FDA - so vaping doesn't pose nearly as much of a health risk as smoking cigarettes.
Studies have shown that vaping does not emit as many dangerous toxins as tobacco products. The chemicals found from vaping do not build up over time while those of tobacco products do and there are no additives or chemicals in vaping liquids that could cause cancer and other health problems like there are with cigarette smoke.
Another benefit vaping has over regular cigarettes is that vaping does not contain tar, which can cause bowel and lung cancer in smokers.
It’s Vaporizing and Not Burning!
Vaping is not smoking. Vaping is the heating of e-liquid to create an aerosol or "vapor" that contains nicotine, flavorings and other chemicals which are tiny particles that dissolve into the air quickly and don’t produce smoke.
Smoking tobacco products like cigarettes emit smoke into your lungs when it's lit up; this often causes some people who have asthma or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) to experience breathing problems from smoking regularly. When vaping, there is no smoke emitted so people do not feel these respiratory issues from vaping instead of smoking traditional combustibles.
When you "vape" an electronic cigarette, the liquid turns into particles that evaporate rapidly. Since vape particles are liquid they pose less risk to your respiratory system and heart than smoke with solid particles from cigarettes.
Better Smell and Taste - Safer For Your Surroundings
Remember the days coming home from a party or club and leaving all your clothes outside because they are so smelly from the smokers? This wouldn't be the case with only vapers present! With vaping, you don't have to worry about vaping smelling up your clothes, car or home.
Vaping is a lot less offensive than the smell of cigarettes, at least it does not stain at all. The vapor dissolves very quickly and does not leave days of cold, old cigarette smell. Non-smokers around you will be thankful.
Vaping also doesn't produce the same smell or secondhand smoke as traditional tobacco products, making vaping a better habit for your surroundings. As said before vape is not smoke and does not have so many unhealthy particles in it, passive smokers are safer. It is still advised not to vape around children and pregnant women.
Moreover, the taste can be different if you want. You can get liquid in a lot of different tastes. This means vaping can be a fun, new experience rather than smoking. And it does not leave a bad taste the morning after.
No Yellow Fingers & Mouth
What stains your mouth and fingers smoking cigarettes is the nicotine, tar and other substances in the smoke. Your vaping liquid may contain alcohols or sweeteners that are not so great for your teeth but they will never form a yellow stain on your fingers as tobacco cigarettes do.
Some people say they enjoy vaping more because it doesn't make them feel lightheaded and dizzy when they use it. Smoking a cigarette often leaves you feeling out of breath for longer periods of time after your body absorbs the nicotine present in tobacco products. However, nicotine from a vape can also lead to dizziness and cause harm in the long run, especially when used too much and too often.
How Long Does Vape Stay in Your Body?
Since vaping does not contain as many chemicals and additives, it stays in your body much less than tobacco smoke would stay there. It can take up to four days before most vaping elements are not in your bloodstream anymore.
Nicotine stays in your blood for 1 - 3 days and is detectable up to 4 days in urine.
What Are Vaping Liquids Made Of?
Vaping liquids are made up of a number of vaping flavors, such as strawberry and cinnamon. These can include different combinations of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG) flavorings like the one mentioned before, butane gas or other chemicals that will change the way your vaping liquid tastes and smells when you use it in your vaping pen.
The extraction process for these materials is not expensive - making them cheaper than traditional cigarettes in many cases - so people who are smoking-addicted have been switching to vaping because they find it helps curb their nicotine addiction without costing too much money. Only the initial investment of vaping materials is expensive, but that expense will pay for itself in the long run.
Meanwhile, research has shown that vaping doesn't present smokers with some health risks associated with combustible tobacco smoke which means there's less chance for cancer and especially unlikely harm to passive smokers.
Overall, vaping does not have so many harmful consequences on your body because you do not inhale toxic substances into your lungs when vaping instead of smoking cigarettes. Furthermore, vaping has been shown to be much safer for your surroundings. Many ingredients of cigarettes build up in your body and stay there for a long time, while vapor is out of your system within less than a week.
