Vape Safe 01 - All About Your Juices

Posted on November 01, 2015 by My Little Vaporium MLV | 1 comment

Let's talk juices. 

You're not a fool, so I assume you know how to handle your juices responsibly. That means you know:

  • Not to drink them (now of course)
  • To keep them stored in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat (especially if you're using a plastic bottle)
  • To keep them stored in a safe place away from curious children or pets
  • To be careful of spilling any on yourself when you're refilling your tank 

But let's talk about other more subtle things, like allergies and potential Nicotine poisoning. Did you know that both Propylene Glycol (PG) and Nicotine can sometimes lead to allergic reactions or exacerbate existing conditions?  

Symptoms of allergy commonly include:

  • Rashes/ Swelling/ Hives - basically forms of skin discomfort
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea
  • Headache

Be on the lookout for any of these if you're not sure whether you're allergic to PG juices. If it turns out you are, abstain from using them and look into the Vegetable Glycerin (VG) alternative instead. 

All our juices come Nicotine-free.

If you choose to acquire Nicotine from other sources for personal consumption, remember that Nicotine is deemed to have some highly toxic components and is considered a lethal poison in large doses.

That's why you need to be extra, extra careful when handling it (we suggest putting on gloves, face mask and eye protection when dealing with high concentrations of Nicotine). If you have any heart conditions, asthma, psiorasis, hyperthyroidism, or any other condition that might potentially be complicated by nicotine in your system, make sure you clear it with your doctor first before taking on vaping with nicotine. Better to be safe than sorry. If you're pregnant, we recommend that you don't ingest Nicotine at all, but if you must, then also ensure that you get medical advice before proceeding.

Watch out for symptoms of Nicotine poisoning, which typically include:

  • Nausea/ Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Pains in your abdomen
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Excessive salivation

Depending on the severity of the above symptoms, you may either need to just lay off vaping for a while or seek further medical advice. The key is being very aware of your physical condition.
