What happens what you quit smoking and start vaping

The first 72 Hours

It is commonly thought that the first 72 hours are the hardest to get through when you quit smoking. Knowing what’s happening to your body and how immediate some of the benefits are can be a great boost to keep you going during those first few days.

 

The good, the bad & the ugly

The good?

Around 20 minutes after you quit smoking, you’ll notice the first signs. The first few things to happen are that your blood pressure and pulse begin to return to normal. Your lungs will also start the process of healing themselves. After around 8 hours the carbon monoxide levels in your blood will also decrease to normal levels, as if you never smoked. Even more amazingly is that within 48 hours most of your taste and smell receptors would have recovered from the damage of smoking and vital nerve endings will also start to heal themselves. By the 72-hour mark, you’ll often find your breathing is much easier than before, this is down to bronchial tubes relaxing in your lungs.

Knowing now the recovery your body can go through in 72 hours once you quit smoking, imagine what could happen after one year!

 

The bad?

It doesn’t always happen, but it could. Sometimes when a person has quit smoking, they develop a bad cough, that usually lasts around a few days to a week. It’s not nice to go through, but it is a sign that your body is healing.

 

If you’re not into science scroll past the next paragraph.

The reason behind this is that smoking damages a part of your lungs known as the cilia. Cilia are tiny hair-like fibres on your lungs that get paralyzed by cigarette smoke. Their main function is to protect the lungs acting as a barrier between anything that might damage the tissue. The reason you might be coughing is that these are functioning again. Turning outside pollutants in the air away from the lungs and into mucus. Which is likely causing that cough.

The TL; DR: Your lungs are cleaning themselves and it’s making you cough after you’ve quit smoking. Of course, any serious coughing including, coughing up blood or a serious shortness of breath could be a symptom of a more serious issue and you should consult your GP.

 

The ugly

Now you might still find you are craving nicotine when you quit smoking, only slightly but it might happen. Vaping is different to smoking, and the nicotine will be hitting your body in a different way. You haven’t completely replaced that nicotine hit your brain was used to and this is completely normal. So as the old slogan goes… will power is required.

Vaping is much more than a nicotine replacement tool. There is the sensation and habit of smoking that you are also replacing so it can just take a small amount of time to adjust, remember you’re on a quit smoking journey and no journey worth going on is ever easy. PVRE is the perfect partner for this journey.

 

Quitting Hacks

Don’t finish that last pack of cigarettes, throw it away and start your quit smoking journey now. The best time to quit smoking is immediately. The longer you’re smoking the harder it gets, and you won’t see the benefits of vaping if you’re still smoking. Because of the strength of nicotine in PVRE e-liquid you can feel satisfied and ward off any cravings straight away.

 

Myth

“I’m just replacing one habit with another.”

 

Fact

A 2015 study by Jean Francois Etter concluded that long term users of vapes were even less dependent on nicotine that someone using alternative nicotine replacement such as gum. The study also concluded that zero-nicotine vapers we’re only slightly less dependent than those using nicotine.

5 vaping facts you need to know for 2022 SMALL

5 Vaping Facts You Need To Know For 2022

In 2021, new vaping trends arose within the vaping trade that was destined to shape the choices that vapers make. With exciting shifts changing the vaping device market, what are the top 5 vaping trends consumers need to know about before entering 2022 and how they relate to the PVRE Device

 

Smaller Vaping Devices

As the vaping market is growing bigger, vaping devices are getting smaller. With the constant demand for technology to become more accessible and easier to use.

Vaping devices are shrinking, allowing vapers to each carry a small vape pen that can easily be slipped into their pockets or bag.

PVRE is no exception. We have produced an extremely lightweight and simple to carry device. The PVRE Device is perfect for your everyday needs, you won’t even notice it in your pocket or bag.

 

Disposable users switching to pod devices

Although disposable devices were extremely popular in 2021 and remain popular in the early months of 2022, we don’t expect this trend to last. More and more users will be switching to pod devices as they look to cut costs to both their wallet and the environment. Pods provide customers a more permanent solution to help them quit smoking long-term.

The PVRE Device is perfectly placed to help these disposable users make the transition. It is a very simple device that requires almost as little set up as a disposable but provides a much more cost-effective solution to smoking. Further to this is it significantly more environmentally friendly.

 

Increased Regulations

It seems that in 2022, there will be an increase in regulations to add to the already stringent rules surrounding the vape industry. With unjustified worries about the safety of vaping in some countries, it is likely that regulations will become even tighter.

Disposables are likely to be hit hard by any new regulations making the importance of easy to maintain pod devices, such as the PVRE Device even more important.

 

Increased Popularity of Nicotine Salts

By far the biggest growing area of the e-liquid market is nicotine salts. Nicotine salts, act more quickly than free base nicotine, making it more effective in terms of quitting smoking. It is also smoother on the throat meaning that you can vape higher amounts of nicotine without it being harsh on your throat.

The PVRE Device exclusively uses nicotine salts because nicotine salts can more closely replicate cigarette-like nicotine delivery in the lung. They are more effective in enabling switching to vaping and remaining smoke free.

 

Continued popularity of menthol and ice Liquids

For vapers who crave a more intense vaping experience, Ice and Menthol e-liquids have become a go-to product and are set to become even more popular this year. When inhaled, these e-juices produce an ice-cold hit alongside a burst of flavour. There are a number of PVRE e-liquids that produce this sensation such as Berry Ice, Ice Mint and Triple Menthol.

The simplicity of using PVRE HEADER

The Simplicity of Using PVRE

PVRE, the easiest to use vaping device available!

One of the more overlooked aspects of using vaping to quit smoking is how simple the vaping device is to use. For a first-time vaper having a device that has multiple power options, coils to change or build, and other confusing settings isn’t usually the way to go.

PVRE is a vaping device that is among the simplest to use, whilst never compromising on safety, quality, or flavour. The PVRE Device has a fixed power, and no coil to change. This makes the device very simple and user friendly.

 

How to use the PVRE Device

The PVRE Device is really as simple as filling the pod with PVRE e-liquid and placing the pod in the device. Once this is done you can leave it for 5-10 minutes and it is ready to vape. This simplicity makes it ideal for anyone looking to quit smoking with vaping. There’s no more to it than that.

Once you’ve finished the e-liquid that comes with the pod kit you can dispose or recycle the pod and get a new one. You don’t even need to change the coil as it is pre-built into the pod.

On top of this PVRE is up to 5x more cost effective than similar devices such as VUSE or JUUL which only contain 2ml of e-liquid. As you can refill the PVRE Pod this means you can use 10ml of e-liquid with the PVRE Device.

Overall PVRE is a simple vape device, amongst the simplest to use, is it better for the environment, and it is more cost effective compared to similar devices.

 

A simple vaping device with good flavour?

Normally with simple vaping devices you compromise on flavour and the power output combined with inferior e-liquid produces a subpar product.

This isn’t the case with PVRE. Despite the PVRE Device being the easiest vape to use available, the flavour and e-liquid quality remains high. The PVRE e-liquid flavours go through rigorous testing to make sure the flavour is perfect, and safety is a prime concern. PVRE goes to show that simple doesn’t always mean less.

PVRE Flavours

PVRE Flavour Range

What’s in PVRE flavours?

At PVRE we use synthetic flavourings and here’s why:

We believe that it’s important to know exactly what is going into our flavourings and that our customers are not exposed to these harmful compounds.

That’s why our expert flavourists craft the purist flavours using pharmaceutical grade chemicals and high-quality aroma chemicals.

This gives us full control meaning we can guarantee only the best flavours.

Introducing PVRE

Introduction to PVRE

PVRE’s mission

We’ve been posting and talking a lot about PVRE lately, and some people might’ve been wondering what is PVRE? Well, PVRE is a new vaping product with big ambition. It is our mission to educate, support and consistently develop our product to make it the most effective alternative to smoking tobacco.

PVRE has been designed to provide clear and scientifically based information on how effective this vape system is in comparison to the potential harm caused by the top 40 cigarette brands.

The PVRE vape system has been developed by our team of 20 scientists which is comprised of toxicologists, chemists, and laboratory technicians as well as our leading manufacturing partner in China. Many of us who created the PVRE brand are ex-smokers and have found vaping to be the most reliable tool to keep off tobacco and remain smoke free.

 

What’s in PVRE’s Flavours?

At PVRE we use synthetic flavourings and here’s why:

Using natural flavourings can mean that harmful and sometimes cancer-causing compounds are carried over from the original source (e.g., aniseed). This is also a risk when using organic flavourings. We believe that it’s important to know exactly what is going into our flavourings and that our customers are not exposed to these harmful compounds.

Why PVRE uses Nicotine Salts?

Because nicotine salts can more closely replicate cigarette-like nicotine delivery in the lung, they are more effective in enabling switching to e-cigarettes and remaining smoke free.

The form of nicotine ordinarily used in e-liquids is termed as ‘freebase’ nicotine. however, nicotine is volatile and as a result, more likely to cause an irritant effect.

When nicotine deposits in the mouth, its absorption is slower than that with a conventional cigarette. This is because nicotine in tobacco exists in the form of so-called “nicotine salts”.

Nicotine salts are formed by the reaction of nicotine (freebase) with a suitable weak acid and are less volatile than freebase nicotine. As a result, a greater amount of the nicotine in the salt form would be expected to remain in inhaled aerosol droplets until the aerosol reaches the alveoli for pulmonary absorption. This also reduces the throat and upper respiratory tract irritation observed with freebase nicotine.

 

PVRE & the environment

We understand that every action we take can have an impact on the world around us, which is why we have made sure that PVRE pods are approximately 5X more recyclable than any other leading closed pod system.

This is one of the many reasons why PVRE is such a sustainable brand. PVRE e-liquids are produced in our custom built, energy efficient facility in London, powered by our own roof solar panels. We are also proudly certified to ISO 14001:2015 and have worked to reduce the waste that stems from our products.

 

PVRE & Cost

We understand that due to events around the world that there has been a strain on peoples finances. When we looked at other closed pod systems, we noticed that the price was high based on the convenience, we wanted to amend this trend. Our pod kits priced at £8.99 can be up to 5x more cost effective than other leading closed pod systems. This is because each pod is refillable, instead of using 2ml per pod and disposing, you can fill our pods with up to 10ml of e-liquid. This also has a huge impact on the environment as you’ll be disposing 5x less than with other systems.

PVRE & Nicotine Salts (Nic Salts)

What are Nicotine Salts (or Nic Salt)?

Nicotine salt (or nic salt) is a type of naturally forming nicotine found in leaf tobacco. Nicotine Salt e-liquids are the most efficient way to deliver nicotine to your body.

But nicotine salts are not the only type of nicotine found in e-lts contain not only nicotine but various other organic components. Nicotine salt is a compound where the nicotine is bonded to other chemicals. This is not the case with freebase nicotine.

Studies have been carried out which suggest nicotine salts were more efficient in delivering nicotine to vapers than freebase nicotine. The addition of benzoic acid to nic salts reduces the pH, which means vaping isn’t as harsh. The result of this is that you can have much stronger concentrations of nicotine up to 20mg, but it doesn’t feel anywhere near as strong as freebase nicotine.

A large number of vapers say they find that nicotine salts deliver a more satisfying experience, saying e-liquid with nicotine salt is easier to inhale due to it being smoother. Vapers will find that the feeling in the throat is one of reduced harshness and are able to use stronger strength nicotine e-liquids, taking in more nicotine for each vape. Many users of vape devices have started to embrace nicotine salts, as a much more effective way to stay off cigarettes.

 

Why PVRE uses Nicotine Salts?

 The PVRE device has been built with nicotine salts in mind. It is a mouth-to-lung device that has a huge focus on incredible flavour. We’ve chosen to use exclusively nicotine salts, because nicotine salts can more closely replicate cigarette-like nicotine delivery in the lung. They are, therefore, more effective in enabling switching to e-cigarettes and remaining smoke free.

 

Are nicotine salts the most effective way to quit?

Nicotine salts have also proved to be the most beneficial for new vapers to stay smoke free. They allow new vapers to use low-cost devices, such as the PVRE device without compromising on flavour or quality.

Some new vapers find the throat hit provided by freebase nicotine too harsh, whereas nicotine salts offer a smoother experience. Perhaps the most important factor in Nicotine Salts being so effective for new quitters, is that the nicotine gets into your body much faster and staves off cravings in a much more effective way.

 

What are the other benefits and advantages of Nicotine salts?

Another benefit of nicotine salts is reduced e-liquid use. As they are generally stronger most users will find themselves reaching for their vape device less. Nicotine Salts will leave most vapers cravings satisfied for longer and they’ll feel less need to vape so often.

This has several positives, the first being a cost saving as you may use less e-liquid. You may find that needing to vape less is very useful in a situation where you have a lack of time. For example, waiting for a bus, or a short break at work. Nicotine Salts allow you to vape in a way that satisfy your cravings in a greatly reduced time.

 

Are Nicotine Salts Safe?

There is nothing to suggest that nic salts aren’t just as safe to use as regular freebase e-liquid. Public Health England also maintains that vaping is

All of the flavours used in PVRE products are what we call ‘Vape Grade products’ – this means they are flavours specifically developed for inhalation.

When we inhale a product, we take it by lung and not the mouth which makes the sensorial experience and the safety of the product, different. So, when developing our ‘Vape Grade’ flavours, we ensure that all raw materials have undergone vape specific toxicological risk-assessment before use: for us, this is an essential duty of care to our customers.

 

What does ‘Vape Grade’ mean?

Vape Grade is a term we have coined to describe the quality and standard of our products. all companies must meet the TPD standard, but we go above this standard which not many other companies do.

How do we ensure our flavours are ‘Vape Grade’? All the ingredients we use are toxicologically rick-assessed by our Toxicology department. We only buy from reputable suppliers that have passed our rigorous supplier approval process. In addition, all incoming raw materials are tested before use, and all finished liquids tested before dispatch. This naturally includes all our nicotine salt products.
