  1. Vaping Without Nicotine

    Vaping Without Nicotine

    Many people take up vaping because they have a goal to cut out nicotine entirely. You might gradually lower your nicotine content down to the lowest possible and then stop all together, but is there a way that vaping without nicotine could be beneficial to you? The most important questions would be; Is it safe? And is it worthwhile?

    We generally associate vaping with ex-smokers but it’s not all about nicotine. Many people just enjoy vaping for the experience, sampling new and exciting flavours and cloud chasing. If you have cut all nicotine out but still enjoy these things about vaping, why not carry on without nicotine?

    Whilst we can’t say for sure that vaping without nicotine is completely harmless, we can say that vaping is far less damaging than smoking, with or without nicotine.

    Feeling irritable

    Trouble sleeping
