Why is Vapin better than smoking?
The truth is, no one can really say for sure. Vapin is relatively new to the market, and as such, there aren't any scientific cases for or against the effects of Vapin. We’ve noticed several smokers feeling much better after vapin for a couple weeks . . . as compared to smoking cigarettes.

What is the difference between Vapin an E-Cigarette, and smoking a tobacco cigarette?
In a nutshell, about 3,996 chemicals.
There are 599 additives put into tobacco cigarettes. Once you start burning a cigarette, those additives create 4,000 chemical compounds. Some of which include: carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen cyanide and ammonia. There are forty three known carcinogens in mainstream smoking and second-hand smoke.
E-cigarettes have approximately 4 chemical ingredients: propylene glycol (polyethylene glycol, or vegetable glycerin), nicotine, flavoring, and water.
All are water soluble viscous liquids used in E-Cig liquids to deliver nicotine and/or flavors. They produce the vapor and provide a similar sensation to inhaling tobacco smoke.
They are humectants (attract moisture) and may dry your throat and cause it to feel sore. Drinking more fluids will help.
Some people experience allergy-type symptoms to one or all three. If so, stop using and/or switch to one of the other two and see if the symptoms go away. If severe, it is recommended that you see your doctor.
Propylene Glycol (PG).
Most commonly used, more throat hit, more flavor.
Slightly sweet and colorless.
USP (book of drug standards) approved propylene glycol is used in cosmetics, toiletries, food colorings, cake mixes, salad dressings, soft drinks and more.
It is also used in the smoke / fog machines found in theatres and nightclubs.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG).
Smoother, slightly thicker and sweeter, produces more vapor.
USP approved glycerin is used in 1500+ applications as an additive to food and drink.
Glycerin can be found in the baking or craft areas in grocery, hobby and department stores. It can also can be found in pharmacies.
Also known as: Glycerin, Glycerine, or Glycerol.
Pharmaceutical grade glycerin is named Glycerin, USP. Without this exact nomenclature it is not pharmaceutical grade (any variation indicates that it is not regulated, and therefore uncontrolled). In the UK it is termed Glycerine, BP.
In the United States it is recommended that you only use USP approved propylene glycol and glycerin.
If you live outside of the U.S., use only pharmaceutical approved Glycerin and/or PG.
Polyethylene glycol (PEG).
A non-toxic compound that is used in pharmaceutical compositions and food additives.
PEG 400 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Is Vapin FDA approved?
No, it is not. There are many theories as to why the FDA won't approve of e-cigarettes, but we won't speculate on that here. $$$
Why do I have to be 18 to purchase a kit?
Because it's the law. And let's face it, whether you enjoy smoking or not, no one wants to see a kid with a cigarette hanging out of their mouth (real, candy, or electronic).
