Why Make the Switch to Vaping/E Cigarettes/E Juice/E Shisha?
Electronic cigarettes are electronic units that allow you to vaporize liquid based solutions, referred to as E-Juice or E-liquids. These substances will produce a vapor when heat is applied that simulates the appearance and flavor of regular smoking while still allowing you to avoid combustion and other negative side effects associated with smoking cigarettes or tobacco products. The vapor from an electronic cigarette contains ZERO tar, ZERO carcinogens, and ZERO harmful chemicals (those chemicals are found commonly in cigarette smoke i.e. benzene) when used properly. Electronic cigarette vapor does not produce foul odors or lasting smoke, making it a much more pleasant social experience for non-smokers and non-vapers around you. These devices can be used legally indoors in offices, workplaces, public transit, restaurants, airports, hotels, etc. Of course, common sense and private property law will always take precedence - it is up to owners of establishments whether to allow or disallow e-cigarette usage. Smokers that switch to vaping with 180 Smoke’s assistance can save up to $2500 per year (for a 1-pack per day smoker) and you can also save on other expenses like hospital visits that are often complications due to tobacco smoking. All of our vaporizers, electronic cigarettes, accessories, and batteries are eco-friendly and recyclable. Keep in mind that electronic cigarettes are an alternative to smoking, and are designed to assist current smokers in the difficult process of quitting tobacco combustions.

Frequently Asked Questions
General Questions About Vaping and E-cigarettes
Why switch to e-cigarette and vaping?
Save money, feel better and enjoy a variety of flavours. More reasons
What is an e-cigarette or Vape?
E-Cigarettes and Vapes use a battery (same as cell phones and laptops) to power a coil which vapourizes e-liquid (of your own choice & nicotine strength). Comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, strengths, capacities. More information
Can Vaping help me quit smoking?
E-Cigarettes and Vaping are a harm reduction alternative to Smoking. Millions of customers have used it to transfer their nicotine addiction to a less harmful alternative. Afterwards, most customers slowly reduce their nicotine strength and some are able to ween off nicotine slowly, but all this is a matter of personal ability, personal biology and mental strength. More on quitting with vaping
Are electronic vaporizers safe to use?
Yes, with the proper care and information. The British Public health recently announced in 2015 that they are about 95% safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. Just like another electronic device, they need proper handling, no tampering and maintenance. Read all instructions and only use approved chargers and parts. Beginners should start with beginner basic devices found in the starter-kit section. Advanced users should not modify the battery or other parts. More safety information
Are there side effects to vaping?
There are no major side effects known directly from Vaping, except that a very small fraction of customers are allergic to PG which simply causes some irritation in the throat. All known side affects are typically associated with cigarette withdrawl and not vaping. Details on side effects
Does nicotine cause cancer?
No, nicotine has never found to be carcinogenic. Nicotine via combustible cigarettes are highly carcinogenic due to the combustion. In vaping, there is no combustion. More evidence
What is the right nicotine strength for me?
Nicotine strength requirement varies for different people based on their personal smoking habit (type of cigarette, length of puff, time smoke is kept inside lungs, etc), and it also varies per device (how much vapor it produces which changes how much nicotine gets delivered). However, based on general anecdotal data, here are some guidelines for consideration. It is important to select the correct nicotine strength that works for you. Each flavour comes in a variety of strength.
> Non-Nicotine (0 mg or 0%): contains absolutely no nicotine and is only meant to simulate the feeling and appearance of smoking. > Extra Light Strength Nicotine (3 mg or 0.3%): a popular choice for very light smokers of under 2-4 cigarettes per day. Feels very smooth when inhaled. > Light Strength Nicotine (6 mg or 0.6%): common for people who switch from smoking 4-9 cigarettes per day. Fairly smooth. > Medium Strength Nicotine (12 mg or 1.2%): medium strength is a common choice for a pack per day smoker. It is our most commonly sold strength. a significant throat hit. > High Strength Nicotine (18 mg or 1.8%): for heavy smokers of more than a pack per day. heavy throat hit. > Extra High Strength Nicotine (24 mg or 2.4%): for very heavy smokers who really need a strong nicotine hit and get a throat hit as close to smoking as possible. Only available in tobacco flavours
No clear laws in most jurisdictions. However, a private property (especially indoors) can have their own policies. Be nice about it, always ask when at restaurants or other private properties with other guests. Don't vape in enclosed spaces, like an elevator, out of courtsey. Some people are simply allergic to the smell, and some may associate it with smoke even though it is not. Take a constructive educational approach if someone does not know, but never subject others to vaping if they don't want it. More on vaping laws

Nicotine strength (if available in your jurisdiction) is measured in milligrams per ml (mg/ml) not per bottle. To make it easy to understand, a 180 Smoke Juice bottle may show this same information in percentage format. e.g., a 12mg/mL may be shown as 1.2% or just 12mg. When Nicotine is present, it may be poisonous if orally ingested, or if high concentration of nicotine contacts your skin. Products purchased may contain nicotine if requested by you. An average lethal dose (LD50) of nicotine is about 30–60 mg (0.5–1.0 mg/kg) for an adult, 10mg for a child, and even less for a pet. (This is an estimate only) Amounts less than those which have been listed can produce the severe symptoms of nicotine poisoning listed below. If you get any e-liquid on your skin or clothing wash it off immediately with soap and COLD water. Please be responsible with e-liquid and keep it stored out of reach of children and pets! We want everyone to be safe, so we can all continue to enjoy vaping.
Disposal of e-liquid bottles: Any bottles that are of no further use should be rinsed out thoroughly with water, re-capped, and disposed of as normal. Please use safe disposal of any products containing nicotine!
