Batteries are the most common dangers associated with e-cigarettes. But, if you do not proceed with caution, e-juice has the potential to be dangerous as well. Just like batteries, e-juice is dangerous if it isn’t stored properly or if it is used irresponsibly.
Nicotine is classified as a poison and e-liquid should be treated the same way as any other dangerous substance that you would have in your household. The nicotine in e-juice is poisonous if enough is ingested, especially if it is swallowed or rubbed all over the skin.
However, medications such as Tylenol and Ibuprofen can be just as dangerous when consumed in large volumes; and yet, most people aren’t going to stop purchasing these medications for that reason alone. Instead, they will look up the proper dosage, how to safely store the medication and whether they are allergic to any of the ingredients. That is just what you need to do with e-juice. Read on to find out more.
Safe E Liquid Storage
We would always recommend that you keep your e-juice in a cool, dark place and out of reach of your children and pets. Let’s face it, small children and pets tend to put everything in their mouths – especially if it looks and smells interesting. The best way to preserve your e-liquid is to keep it in a cool, dry place. But wherever you put it, make sure it is safely locked away. Do not risk the safety of your children or pets by being negligible with your nicotine.
What To Do With Spillages
If you get e-juice on any part of your body, wash it off immediately. Keep your e-liquid away from open wounds and do not get it anywhere near your eyes as this can be extremely painful. If you do get e-liquid in your eyes, in a wound or anywhere on your skin we would strongly advise that you wash it off immediately. If the pain, stinging, or burning continues, it is best to consult a doctor as soon as possible. As mentioned above, e-liquid is toxic and you should treat it the same way as you would bleach or any other toxic substance.
Nicotine tolerance varies from person to person. Most people that start vaping smoked cigarettes previously and, therefore, they will usually start vaping with a higher concentration of nicotine in their e-juice. If at any point while vaping you find that you start feeling light-headed, nauseous, like your heart is pounding in your chest, or any other symptoms of nicotine poisoning, stop vaping immediately. You may have made the concentration of nicotine too high for you to handle, so it is best to adjust the levels until you find what works best for you.
Propylene glycol (PG) is everywhere. It is in inhalers, sanitising agents, fog machines and much more. However, despite this there is a small part of the world’s population that is sensitive, or full blown allergic, to PG. If you are someone that has propylene glycol sensitivity, we would recommend using 100% vegetable glycerine e-juice. It is not that difficult to do. In fact, why not check out the varieties of e-liquid we offer here at Smokshop so that you can find the right one for you: Just keep in mind that not every flavour can be 100% free as some flavourings contain PG within them.
As with storing your e-liquid, you should also take as many precautions as you can with handling and filling your e-cigarette. When filling your e-cigarette, remember that you are handling a toxic substance and should be careful at all times. Do not, under any circumstances, squeeze the bottle too hard or near your face whilst filling. We recommend that the safest method is to fill your e-cigarette at arms-length, away from your face and eyes. If you want to be extra cautious, it can also be helpful to use a syringe to extract the required amount.
