The Difference Between E-cigarette Vapour and Cigarette Smoke


It’s clear that there are multiple reasons to make the switch from smoking to vaping, but when it comes down to it, what is the real difference between e-cig vapour and cigarette smoke?


Four Ingredients vs. 4000+ Chemicals

The most significant difference between e-cig vapour and cigarette smoke are the ingredients or toxins produced by this chemical reaction. BLACKHAWX Electronic Cigarettes contain just four ingredients; a precise mixture of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, distilled water and flavouring (or five if you choose a nicotine variety). The smoke of traditional tobacco cigarettes can contain more than 4000 chemicals, with many of the most popular brands containing close to 7000 chemicals in high concentrations – 70 of which have been proven to cause cancer. Just a few of the most toxic chemicals found in traditional cigarette smoke include Cyanide, Formaldehyde and Ammonia.


Looks Can be Deceiving

While the vapour replicates the look of cigarette smoke, the similarities stop there. Unlike cigarette smoke, e-cig vapour dissipates in a matter of seconds, meaning you won’t be surrounded by a foul smelling puff of smoke that just seems to endlessly linger. Electronic cigarette vapour is produced when the atomizer heats the e-liquid to a point where it is converted into vapour, however the vapour itself is not noticeably hot and the body of the BLACKHAWX e-cig remains cool to the touch.


The Smell!

Unlike tobacco cigarette smoke, e-cig vapour does not produce a noticeable smell. Your non-smoking friends, family members and co-workers will certainly notice the difference when you no longer smell like a walking ashtray.


From the chemicals produced to the hazardous effects it has on not only you, but those who surround you, it is pretty easy to see that the difference between toxic traditional cigarette smoke and e-cig vapour is night and day.
