The vaping industry is estimated to be a $4-billion dollar business in the U.S. According to Wells Fargo analyst’s that number is projected to reach $10 billion annually by 2017. The new FDA regulations and the health concerns are making people skeptical on weather vaping will survive in America.
Anti-Vaping advertisements and health concerns have people asking themselves if Vaping is just a fad or is it here to stay?
introduced in 2007 as the Safe alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes, E-cigarettes have recently became increasingly popular. E-cigarettes were once only sold by a few manufacturers in a small number of places. Now everywhere I go, I see new Vape shops and lounges opening up. There are more than 3,500 vape shops across the nation and this number is rising.
vaping is defined as the act of inhaling or exhaling vapor produced by an electronic cigarette or a similar device. These E-cigarettes are battery powered devices that are designed to mimic cigarettes by vaporizing a nicotine laced liquid that is inhaled by the user. Many smokers have turned to e-cigarettes to get there nicotine fix without the harmful effects of smoking traditional cigarettes.
Based on various studies vaping is safer then smoking traditional cigarettes. There are no know adverse effects on the Heart and the arteries. Unlike smoking vaping is odorless unless your E-liquid is flavored. It gives the user there nicotine fix without as many health concerns. Vaping is also cost effective; there is no ash, no flame, and no social stigmas.
Much of the appeal surrounded by vaping is the E-Liquid used to create the vapor. Some vaping flavors appeal to the traditional cigarette smoker while other flavors appeal to different crowds. E-Juice flavors such as watermelon, cotton candy, and skittles are attracting High school students and frat guys around the world. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did research that showed E-cigarette use had tripled among teens in just one year.
The FDA recently created regulations on vaping that said E-cigarettes and E-juice would be removed from the market until they had been authorized by the FDA. Many people think this could kill the Vaping industry but we wont know until these regulations are put into place.
With the number of vapers on the rise, we notice that the number of douche vapors is also on the rise. The vape douche is that guy who cant go five minutes without talking about this mod, and blows a giant vape cloud right in your face. These guys are making the entire vape community look bad.
Like Nickle back it has become popular on the internet hate on Vaping. People hate on vaping because they see it as another bandwagon comparable to not eating gluten, or being a vegetarian or being religious or a feminist, etc. The public sees someone vaping and they instantly think, “That person thinks he’s better than us because he is vaping” or, “Wow, look at this asshole thinking hes cool because he can blow clouds”. Vaping has been associated with being a douche bag.
there is no question that vaping is gaining popularity but will it die out like past trends? The Harlem shake, and planking where all the rage and now they are non existent like a handful of other memes. Will vaping follow in their footsteps and become just another trend? Will vaping survive new regulations and this negative image?
Even though the vape community has hit some road blocks we think vaping is here to stay.
Whether you live on the east coast, or the west coast you have seen the mainstream popularity vaping has gained. The vape industry is booming and we don’t see it slowing down anytime soon.
If you follow market trends you can see the industry is thriving and making huge profits. The vape industry has become a billion dollar business and has created thousands of jobs. As long as there are still people smoking cigarettes, their will still be a strong consumer demand for E-cigarettes.
Another reason why vaping is so popular is vaporizers can conveniently be purchased. If there are no vape shops in you area which seems impossible you can always purchase a vaporizer from an online shop. Online vape shops have become very popular, allowing customers to purchase products in a safe, discreet, and convenient manner.
The real reason why vaping wont ever die out is the attributed health benefits.
Smoking cigarettes harms nearly every organ in your body, causes many diseases, and can reduce your life expectancy dramatically. Cigarette smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. Smoking causes more deaths then alcohol use, illegal drug use, and motor vehicle injuries combined. Vaping is much safer in comparison.
Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, a world renowned cardiologist and leading e-cigarette and vaping researcher has been conducting scientific studies on e-cigarettes since they first became popular back in 2007.
he found that “Vapers are not exposed to dangerous levels of formaldehyde.” the study also found that vaping 95% safer than smoking. Smokers should be encouraged to switch to vaping.
The smell of Vaping is more tolerable then cigarettes and does not require anything to be burned. Vaping is much cheaper then cigarettes in the long run and people have said that vaping has helped them quit cigarettes and nicotine all together.
The word vape was also permanently inducted into the English language. In 2014 oxford dictionaries had chosen “Vape” as the word of the year.
The vaping market is not just some fad that’s here today and gone tomorrow. The market is rapidly growing, and all indications suggest it will continue to grow for years to come. If your not one of the millions of people who have switched from cigarettes to Vaping consider making the switch today. Your body and everyone around you will thank you for it.
