Vaping has gained incredible popularity in the past few years, especially among millennials.
Many people might have dismissed vaping as a fad when the first version of the modern vaporizer emerged in 2003. However, the practice has since evolved into a lifestyle.

If you've lately been considering jumping onto the vaping bandwagon, it's reassuring to know that you're not alone. You'll be joining a community comprising not only the average Joe but even notable celebrities like Tom Hardy, Katy Perry, and Leonardo DiCaprio, to mention a few. 

What Is Vaping?

Vaping refers to inhaling vapor generated by heating materials (usually herbal blends) inside a unique device called a vaporizer. A vaporizer is known as an electronic cigarette (abbreviated as e-cigarette or e-cig) or simply a vape device.

Thirty years later, another inventor called Herbert Gilbert came up with a different version of the electronic cigarette. Gilbert's invention was patented as "a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette."

  • Vape Coil 

A vape coil is the most crucial element of a vaporizer's heating chamber. The coils help propagate heat from the heating chamber to the vape tank where the herbal extracts are placed. Most coils connect to vape tanks via a wick.
