It's no secret that countless people have used vaping to help them quit smoking.
This is because you can easily select the level of nicotine that you'd like in most vape juices, allowing you to gradually "taper off" over time.
While vaping is healthier than smoking, there are still some vaping flavors that it's best to steer clear of. So, which flavors of vape should you avoid to better protect your health?
Keep on reading this post to find out.
Opt for PG and VG Vaping Flavors
Before we get into more specific vaping flavors that could be harmful to your health, let's talk about the base ingredients that you should look for if you want to be on the safe side.
First of all, we suggest looking for vape flavors that are made from PG, or Propylene Glycol. This is a tasteless and odorless liquid that has practically negligible side effects when inhaled (remember, it's usually the nicotine that causes the problems.)
You can also opt for vape juice flavors with a VG, or Vegetable Glycerin, base. In fact, VG is made from plant oils and is already in lots of the foods you eat and even the cosmetics you may use.
It also has low toxicity levels.
Vape Flavors to Avoid
Now, let's talk about the vaping flavors that are the most dangerous.
First of all, make it a point to stay away from vaping cinnamon flavors. This is because the chemicals used to create the flavor (delicious though it may be) are harmful to your white blood cells.
Also, try to avoid mint and menthol flavors, as some studies have shown that they can hurt the blood vessels inside your heart. Be aware, however, that this only happened after 90 minutes of continuous vaping. So, if you must have the mint/menthol flavor, try to keep your sessions short.
There's also a debate in the vaping world about potential problems of vaping popcorn-flavored e-juice. However, the jury is still out on whether the issue comes with a chemical that's found in traditional popcorn, or if the problem lies with the e-juice flavors.
Complicating things even further?
Many vaping enthusiasts point to a study that confirmed that popcorn factory employees developed an irreversible lung disease that was a consequence of the butter flavor.
Enjoy popcorn flavors at your own risk.
What Flavorings Are Safe to Vape?

Of course, the question remains: which flavors of vape are safe to enjoy?
It goes without saying that the lower the level of nicotine, the better off that you'll be.
