Vape Timeline: A History Of Vaping
Electronic cigarettes have been in existence for over a decade. It can be difficult to believe, but it's true. Vaping has come a long way since the first e-cigarettes and vape products went into production. The following article will take you through the history of vaping and explain how it became the multi-billion dollar global industry that we see today. Vape devices and vaping are relatively new phenomena, but it's been around for long enough to have a rich history. Here's what you should know!
What Is Vaping?
Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling the vapor produced by an electronic cigarette or another similar device. The word "vape" comes from the word "vapor," which refers to the cloud of water vapour that is released when you exhale. This cloud is made up of tiny droplets of liquid suspended in air or gas, known as aerosols. When vaping, you're inhaling these aerosols into your lungs and then expelling them out again—but without burning any tobacco or plant material like you would with traditional cigarettes.
The History Of Vaping
There are two main types of vaping devices: e-cigarettes (devices that heat flavoured liquids) and vape pens (often called mods). E-cigarettes were invented by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in 2003, while mod makers began creating their devices around 2006. Mods tend to be more customizable than e-cigarettes because they can include control features like firing modes and temperature controls.
E-cigarettes were first marketed as smoking cessation tools—a way for smokers who wanted to quit their habit.
As you can see, the vaping industry has a rich cultural history that stems back hundreds of years to the 1400s. Through this time and into the future, vaping will continue to evolve and change with the times. And though it is impossible to know exactly where vaping will go next, hopefully, this historical overview has helped you understand where vaping has been. So now when you go to a vape shop near you or buy premium quality vape products be content you know the history.
