Nicotine-Free Vape FAQ
Q: WHAT ARE THE HEALTH RISKS?
A: There is still not enough evidence to suggest that vaping, in general, has any long-term health risks. This is especially true for nicotine-free vapes. There are some that believe certain flavors such as butter or cinnamon may cause irreversible lung damage, yet, there have not been any studies to confirm this.
Q: WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF NICOTINE-FREE VAPE?
A: Zero mg liquids as most vaping substances do not cause side effects, except personal allergies and intolerances to ingredients. There are no concrete studies related to nicotine-free e-juices, so there are no any side effects specific to their use.
Q: IS NICOTINE-FREE VAPING ADDICTIVE?
A: Since it is actually addictive, it stands to reason that nicotine-free vapes are not. This, of course, depends on the other ingredients in the e-juice.
There can possibly be a psychological addiction that comes with vaping. This is a very strong urge to vape even if there are no additives or nicotine in the juice that has you addicted.
Q: WHAT IS IN THE NICOTINE-FREE VAPE?
A: This is highly dependant on the particular e-juice, so there is no way to say definitively what the ingredients are.
Try to avoid juices that have a lot of chemicals in them as preservatives when you can to make sure the juice is as pure as it can be. Many vape juices use food grade ingredients for flavors.
Q: WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF NICOTINE-FREE VAPING?
A: One of the dangers of zero nicotine vaping is that new vapers who have never smoked may be tempted to start. Since there is nothing addictive in the nicotine-free e-juices, they may end up looking for something stronger.
Even if they don’t start smoking eventually, they may end up taking on a nicotine addiction by starting with nicotine-based juices.
Q: IS NICOTINE-FREE VAPE BAD?
A: Vaping without nicotine is as safe as the ingredients being used in the particular e-juice are. In other words, use a trusted brand that does not load the e-liquids with lots of chemicals and strange flavorings to be on the safe side.
Q: IS NICOTINE-FREE VAPING BAD FOR YOUR LUNGS?
A: As of the time of this writing there has not been enough research to determine if there are any long-term effects on the lungs. There has been some speculation that lung cells get damaged by certain chemicals for flavoring the juice, but nothing that has definitely resulted in any kind of declaration that any vaping is bad for the lungs.
Q: ARE THERE ANY NICOTINE-FREE VAPE HEALTH BENEFITS?
A: It could be considered a health benefit that people stop consuming nicotine, but as there has not been enough research done into any possible health issues, nobody can say for sure.
