What is an E-Liquid?
E-liquid is the flavored liquid that is used in e-cigarettes. It is usually made up of various ingredients such as nicotine, propylene glycol and water. Sometimes referred to as e-juice, e-liquid is often available in a range of nicotine strengths.
Does an e-liquid contain nicotine?
It depends on the kind of e-liquid you buy. E-liquids are available in a variety of nicotine strengths, so vapers can select the strength that best suits their taste.
How is e-liquid contained?
E-liquid can come in either a tank or a bottle. Tanks are used in Closed System e-cigarettes – devices that you can’t fill up with bottled e-liquid. These tanks contain e-liquid and can be screwed onto your Closed System e-cigarette.
E-liquid can also come in small bottles that are to be used with Open System e-cigarettes - devices that can only be refilled with bottled e-liquid. Tanks cannot be used in this kind of device. Instead, a small amount of e-liquid should be dripped into the device’s clearomizer.
Is e-liquid dangerous?
E-liquid is harmful if swallowed or if it comes in contact with skin. It may cause long-lasting harmful effects to aquatic life, and users should wash their hands thoroughly after handling and avoid release to the environment.
E-liquid should never be consumed and you should avoid contact with the skin. If any e-liquid comes into contact with your skin, you should wash it off immediately. If you feel unwell or have any kind of adverse reaction to it, you should immediately contact a doctor or poison center.
