Why Is Vaping Becoming Increasingly Popular Amongst the Youth?


Store Manitu Although vaping is a current trend, in order to understand how it began, you must delve into history. Vaping was written about by the esteemed Egyptian historian Herodotus as far back as the fifth century BCE. The technique was impressive. People heated hemp seeds with a red stone. When the seeds heated up, they emitted vapor, which people inhaled (vaped).

Water pipes appeared in Southeast Asia in the 16th century, which were largely used for vaping. In the 20th century, vaping gradually made its way into America and Europe, marking the beginning of modern vaping history. Joseph Robinson invented the first e-cigarette known as the Butan Ignition vaporizer. Later, in 1960, Herbert Gilbert created a modern vaporizer, marketed as the "smokeless non-tobacco cigarette." However, scientists and researchers continued to invent new things. Chinese researcher Hon Lik is credited with inventing the modern, advanced form of the e-cigarette in 2003.

Where is vaping most widespread? Since the invention of the electronic cigarette in 2003, their usage has spread dramatically. The number of adult e-cigarette users globally increased from around 7 million in 2011 to 68 million in 2021. According to some data, there might already be 82 million users today. Awareness and usage of e-cigarettes have greatly increased in a few years, especially among young people and women. Since the introduction of e-cigarettes, vaping has grown significantly in most high-income countries. The use of e-cigarettes in the United States and Europe is greater than in other countries, except for China, which has the highest number of e-cigarette users.

Based on a 2016 review, the increasing use of e-cigarettes is a result of strong promotion through media channels targeted at young people, their low prices, and the belief that e-cigarettes are safer than traditional cigarettes. The use of e-cigarettes is also rising due to the consensus of multiple scientific organizations that e-cigarettes are safer (though not without risks) compared to combustible tobacco products. It appears that e-cigarette usage is increasing in tandem with the rapid decline in cigarette use in many countries, indicating that e-cigarettes are gradually displacing traditional cigarettes.

The popularity of vaping among teenagers is largely attributed to marketing aimed at youth, promotion of electronic cigarettes on social media, and peer influence. A study of American high school seniors identified three main motives for vaping: flavor and enjoyment (63%), experimentation (29%), and a substitute for conventional cigarettes (7%). In comparison, a German study showed that a significant majority of German youths aged 14 to 19 cited curiosity (73.1%) as the reason for using e-cigarettes, followed by tobacco cessation (14.9%) and as a supplement to tobacco use (7.5%).

How is vaping in Slovenia? As elsewhere in the world, vaping has gained popularity and recognition in Slovenia in recent years. In 2018, the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) conducted a study that found a significant prevalence of electronic cigarette use among young people, with rates as high as 43% in schools (39% in primary and 53% in secondary schools).

NIJZ studies also showed that young people are more susceptible to vaping than adults. In 2017, among surveyed 17-year-olds from across Slovenia, more than a third reported using electronic cigarettes, and over one-tenth had used them in the past 30 days.

An active vaping association exists in Slovenia as well, which is a non-profit consumer advocacy group aiming to educate the public, media, and government officials about the use of electronic cigarettes. According to their own data, the association currently has 874 members.

How to start vaping? Using vaping as a replacement for conventional smoking makes sense for several reasons. One of the most compelling arguments for switching is the obvious health benefits. Studies have shown that vaping is up to 95% safer than smoking. It's not surprising, then, that vapers are mostly former smokers who turn to vaping as a way to replace the habit of smoking.

Apart from replacing the hand-to-mouth routine deeply ingrained in smokers, vaping is much more socially acceptable than smoking in public. Transitioning from smoking to vaping is not without its side effects, as some might think. Withdrawal symptoms and cravings still exist, but for many smokers, vaping offers a pleasant experience that substitutes their cigarette cravings. Rising cigarette and tobacco prices are another reason why many consider switching to vaping. Of course, this figure varies for each user due to factors like the number of cigarettes smoked per day and the investment in vaping equipment and e-liquids.

Nevertheless, it's safe to say that vaping is much cheaper than smoking. Based on numerous estimates, vaping is about 93% cheaper than smoking 20 cigarettes a day, 88% cheaper than smoking 10 cigarettes a day, and 76% cheaper than smoking 5 cigarettes a day. For cigarette smokers, the range of flavors is quite limited, or practically non-existent. Vapers, on the other hand, have access to an almost infinite variety of flavors, which is highly appealing to many. From strawberry milkshake to cola-flavored e-liquids, today's vapers have a wide spectrum of ideas and experiences to explore.

Manitu offers everything you need for your vaping experience Vaping is considered the most effective way of consuming cannabinoids, with an absorption rate of up to 90%. An additional positive aspect of vaping is its quick and easy preparation and consumption. Simply attach the vape liquid cartridge to the battery, inhale through the mouthpiece to enjoy the flavor, and then exhale through your mouth to experience the phenomenal CBD/CBG vaping sensation.

As mentioned earlier, selecting high-quality equipment (battery) and vaping liquid is crucial for safe vaping. This is especially true if you opt for vaping CBD liquids. In this case, traditional devices are not recommended, as there is a high likelihood of liquid leakage. CBD liquids have a much lower viscosity compared to other vape liquids. At Manitu Herbs, we offer a specially adapted Ccell battery suitable for consuming CBD liquids. Additionally, we provide two types of CBD liquids, Puro and Candy, to ensure the ultimate vaping pleasure.

Puro is characterized by its earthy, honey, and lemon aroma, consisting of pure cannabis extract enriched with its own terpenes.
