There are a lot of things that new vapers struggle with when they become a part of the vaping community. This is especially true for those who are making the transition from smoking to vaper. Being a vaper is slightly more complicated as you have to learn how to properly use the electronic cigarette and how to carefully handle the e-liquid. Both tasks can be quite tricky at times. You just need to keep your focus, pay attention to what the other vapers have to say and read as much information as you can about being a smart e-liquid consumer.
Warning Label for Children and Pets
It should be common knowledge for any vaper that e-liquids are basically a combination of PG, VG, flavouring, water and nicotine that comes in a variety of strengths. Dealing with the flavouring part of the e-liquid can be quite a tough ordeal in the sense that it attracts pets and children towards the product. This is why each and every single e-liquid bottle should be labelled with the warning “keep away from the reach of pets and children”. Since a lot of the e-liquid products that you are going to bring home will have a delectable assortment of irresistible flavours, you cannot really blame your children or your pets for wanting to have a look and taste of these products.
The Risk of Poisoning
If there is one big similarity between children and pets, it is the fact that both of them are extremely curious in nature. Children are always asking questions about things that they don’t know and are looking to touch, taste and smell things that they have never experienced before. Although the pets keep their mouths shut, they are not too different from children in terms of wanting to get a feel of anything and everything around them. As the saying goes, curiosity kills the cat. If parents and pet owners do not find a way to curb down and control the curiosity of their children and pets, then they run the risk of having their children or pets suffer from poisoning caused by vaping products. The last thing that the vaping community needs is a bunch of irresponsible and neglectful vapers who are not mindful about their children or pets’ safety. This will certainly give the critics of e-cigarettes another reason to spew hatred on the vaping lifestyle.
Storing E-Liquid Products In a Safe Location
It is extremely important for adults to act responsibly and store their e-liquids in a place that cannot be reached by children or pets. The best place to store your e-liquids would be on the top shelf. It is preferable that you keep the e-liquid bottles under lock and key. When we talk about kids, we do not necessarily just refer to the toddlers who have little clue of what they are doing. We also refer to older kids who are smart enough to find a way to reach the top shelf. Hence, keeping the e-liquid bottles locked up is a top priority in any household that has children beyond the age of 6.
Controlling the Nicotine Intake
There is much more to being a smart consumer of e-liquid than to simply keep a watchful eye on your children and pets. Sometimes, we need to exercise caution on ourselves to make sure that our e-liquid products do not end up harming us in any way. One of the biggest problems that you can face with an e-liquid product is nicotine overdose. Some retailers will always push you into buying a truck load of e-liquids that have high nicotine levels. The human body can only endure up to a certain amount of e-liquid before it starts experiencing discomfort and health complications. The level of e-liquid that a human being can tolerate differs from one individual to the other. This is why it is so difficult to put a number on the product label with regards to the recommended amount of nicotine that should be consumed. That being said, you should refrain from using e-liquid products with high nicotine content the moment you experience headaches, nausea and other side effects.
In conclusion, be as cautious with your e-liquid as you possibly can be. Do not keep it lying around with the lid off. Make sure that the children and the pets have no idea of where the e-liquids are. Also, be careful about the amount of nicotine you consume. We recommend you start off small with 3mg to 6m e-liquid bottles. You do not have to give up on nicotine as long as you know how to control your intake.
