They vaporize a liquid solution, consisting of water, glycerin, flavour agent and nicotine. (Glycerin and the flavouring agent are both deemed safe by the FDA)
The vapor is similar to what youd expect to come out of a fog machine. You get a satisfying throat hit, and from the reviews Ive read you wont really notice a difference between smoking real cigs and this stuff.
As far as, if
they work... While a few companies market them as smoking cessation devices this is not the case. They dont stop you from smoking. You just smoke something different. Something that doesnt contain 4,000+ known carcinogens, tar and all the other crap that comes along with real tobacco.
Nicotine content varies depending on the type of fluid you purchase, and vary in strength from very low to very high... whatever that means.
I plan on buying one as soon as I find a reputable Canadian company.
