Frequently Asked Questions

What is e-liquid?

E-liquid (electronic cigarette liquid) is a specific fluid that is required to be able to use an electronic cigarette. E-liquids are atomized into vapor and inhaled, thus mimicking traditional tobacco smoke. E-liquids vary in flavor, throat hit, and nicotine levels as well as other attributes such as carriers and aftertaste.

E-liquids contain the following components:

Nicotine: The stimulant found in cigarettes. Nicotine is a comparatively simple alkaloid called pyridine found naturally in tobacco leaves. Nicotine is released as a product of combustion when a cigarette burns. We use natural nicotine extracted from tobacco leaves by stripping the nicotine from the leaves both mechanically and chemically. These extracts are then purified with the most advanced fractional distillation techniques before they are used in our e-liquids.

Aroma: The ingredient that gives taste. While our nicotine is first extracted from natural tobacco leaves, it is the following distillation process that makes for extremely pure nicotine. Unadulterated nicotine does not have any taste, so it becomes necessary to introduce flavors into the nicotine solution to make the resulting vapor resemble and taste like real cigarette smoke.

Diluent: This component essentially performs two functions. First, diluents are added to change the relative strength of nicotine against flavoring (or vice versa). This is useful in achieving the desired strength of an e-liquid. Diluents are also used to transmit nicotine and flavors through vapor. The most common diluents are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG).

Are e-liquids safe?

We cannot speak for others but HEXOcell e-liquids contain well-known components that are commonly used in making numerous food items and household products. Even so, e-liquids contain nicotine and should only be used or handled by responsible adults.

Do HEXOcell e-liquids contain toxins like cigarette smoke does?

No. Cigarette smoke contains over 4.000 chemicals that includes tar and carbon monoxide. In addition to these exceedingly dangerous carcinogenic agents, cigarette smoke contains radioactive polonium and radium isotopes. Our e-liquids do not contain tar, carbon monoxide, or other harmful substances found in cigarette smoke.

Will vaping help me stop smoking?

Vaping will give you the highest chance to quit smoking because the underlying concept revolves around two central notions that must be addressed if one is to successfully quit for good. First, vaping eliminates cravings by way of the nicotine in e-liquids. Second, vaping provides full relief against the habit formed over years of holding a cigarette in your hand and periodically taking it to your mouth.

What are the advantages of vaping?

The are quite a few benefits to vaping; to mention a few:

Harm-Reduction: There are numerous scientific studies showing electronic cigarettes to be an extremely effective harm-reduction alternative to smoking.

Odor: Electronic cigarettes produce a fragrant vapor. The lingering stench of cigarette smoke disappears.

Money: Vaping saves considerable amounts money compared to smoking – savings can easily be in the 50-75% range annually.

Environment: Vaping is much more eco-friendly compared to cigarettes - no ashing, no cigarette butts, and no packs to discard.

Fire: Electronic cigarettes do not require lighting. The risk of fire is completely eliminated.

Social: Vaping shows you are trying to quit smoking, and this noble effort is appreciated by everyone around you. The fashionable esthetics of an e-cigarette serves as a status symbol and is guaranteed to attract attention wherever you go.

What nicotine strengths do you suggest?

HEXOcell e-liquids come in various strengths guaranteed to satisfy your needs regardless whether you smoke a few cigarettes or a few packs a day. If you are new to vaping, you will probably want to experiment with different nicotine strengths to find your preferred nicotine level. You can also mix e-liquids with different nicotine levels and thereby adjust nicotine strength to suit your preferences. You might also prefer to vape using e-liquids with different nicotine levels throughout the day. Whatever your preferences may be, HEXOcell has you covered.

How much e-liquid should I use?

The answer depends mostly on how much you smoke and a little on the type of atomizer you use (certain atomization units such as low-resistance atomizers tend to burn more e-liquid). The generally accepted rule of thumb is to use around 15ml of e-liquid per week if you smoke around 30 cigarettes a day.

What is propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin?

Propylene glycol is a tasteless and odorless compound used in making e-liquids - higher PG ratios mean harder throat hits. Vegetable glycerin (VG) is a natural organic glycerol. It is a thick and sweet substance also used in making e-liquids - higher VG ratios mean thicker and sweeter vapor. Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

What does ‘throat hit’ mean?

A throat hit is the physical feeling experienced in the throat while vaping. There are four factors that contribute to the strength of a throat hit. The three main determinants are nicotine levels, the PG/VG ratio, and the overall quality of the e-liquid. Vaping equipment also affects the quality of a throat hit, albeit to a lesser extent.

Different people have different opinions as to what constitutes the perfect throat hit. Infrequent vapers might prefer higher-nicotine e-liquid for a more intense experience while those that vape in short intervals might prefer milder blends.

What is steeping? Do you suggest it?

Steeping is a simple concept that can help bring out more flavor. To steep your e-liquid, shake the bottle vigorously, then remove the cap and leave it in a cool and dark place for at least 48 hours. The longer you steep, the more flavorsome e-liquid becomes. E-liquids in general and tobacco flavored e-liquids in particular tend to become richer and fuller through steeping. If you feel like an e-liquid is lacking in taste, steeping it could improve the level of flavor transmission.

What is the best way to store e-liquids?

E-liquids should be stored in a cool and dry place not exposed to direct sunlight. While we use dark-colored glass bottles to reduce the effects of sunlight, you can guarantee optimal vapor performance by storing your e-liquids in a closed box. E-liquids are generally good for two years; all HEXOcell e-liquids feature the expiration date and batch number on the bottle label.
