Is Nicotine harmful?

Posted on 12 June 2017

Many people today believe that nicotine is the cause of cancer; yes, it is true that nicotine may be highly addictive but it is not a carcinogenic and has not been linked to cancer. 
Nicotine itself may have some very positive potential. The nicotine molecule has about the same shape and size as a vital neurotransmitter (also known as acetylcholine). As a result, the nicotine behaves as a neurotransmitter and can activate the release of additional neurotransmitters, such as the very popular and useful dopamine, and hormones. It can also stimulate the brain's pleasure centers. 
When many people today are consuming caffeine on a daily basis as a part of their everyday routine, nicotine is only considered more harmful due to the traditional cigarettes when caffeine and nicotine do not have that much difference in comparison. Nicotine can kick start your adrenal glands and give you a bit of adrenaline. Nicotine can cause a short-term increase in heart rate and blood pressure but only temporarily, same as your coffee.
The fact is that smoking generates 7,000 chemicals through the process of combustion combined with all of the horrible tobacco additives that cigarette companies add to tobacco to make it burn faster and accelerate nicotine absorption. Smoking causes the harm, not the nicotine.
In the end, it’s the amount of chemicals and carcinogens that contains in your traditional cigarettes that you have to stay away from. 
So how does that compare to a vaporizer?
When using such devices that VAPORIZE your liquid that may or may not contain nicotine, keep in mind there is no combustion, tobacco, tar etc. The only thing you should be mindful of is that nicotine can, in fact, burn and create such toxins - but still undoubtedly still incomparable to smoking a cigarette. Overheating your device, or not changing your coils on a regular basis can lead to inhaling unnecessary toxins. To avoid this, all you need to do is change your coils whenever you sense a burning or unusual flavour coming from your vaporizer.
