This post introduced me to the term "vaping". If you're like me, and didn't know what that means, it's using e-cigarettes that produce vapor rather than the familiar cigarette that burns tobacco. [editor]
Electronic cigarettes are known for their various options, when it comes to e juice flavors. The electronic cigarette is now available at important malls and stores, as well as online. More and more people are using the e-cig and vaping is becoming more of a hobby to them, which signals yet another difference between smoking (an addiction and bad habit) and vaping. When it comes to e-juice flavors, the available options are many.
Taste buds can differ from person to person and what may seem sweet to one person may be unpleasant to another. Also, the same e-cigarette flavor may taste different at certain points in time.
The flavor usually improves a couple of weeks after production. The process is called ‘steeping” and it generally applies to flavors such as chocolate but also tobacco and coffee.
Electronic cigs flavors change very little while they are being used. What tastes great today may transform into a much more robust taste after a couple of weeks.
Menthol and Tobacco Flavors
Many smokers, who turn to vaping and e-cigs, stick with familiar flavors such as menthol or tobacco for the simple reason that they are already accustomed to these tastes. But people tend to judge the flavor of the e-cigs by referring mostly to the nicotine level and are less impressed by the actual flavor of the e-juice.
The tobacco flavor is not that great and this is the main reason why people switch to menthol. This masks the scent of tobacco and also tends to be a more acceptable scent when it comes to the smoker's clothes, skin and hair.
Vaping on the other hand does not taste that well when using minty or tobacco flavored juices. In fact, the vapors that users inhale are often described as "awful" if minty or a tobacco flavor is used. Similar statements have also been made by regular smokers who switched to vaping.
Most new kits come with 5 pre-filled cartridges that are usually filled with a generic tobacco flavor. Vapers advise newbies to purchase their own flavored e-juice after the generic tobacco one runs out. Since there are a multitude of differently flavored e-juices out there, a smoker can try out a few until he finds the one he likes best.
Also, some might find the tobacco flavoring delightful, while other can find it strange and unexpected. Whatever the case that you find yourself in may be, remember that trying out vaping flavors is the best way to improve your overall vaping experience.
