The trend of vape has taken over the entire world as quickly as cheetah sprints. It has not remained only as a style of smoking but has become even a culture, a social symbol, and behavior of certain people. Vape pens and their flavors might have become a fashion in today’s world but it was not the primary goal of the e-cigarettes. The earliest purpose of vape products was to gradually eradicate the standard smoking for the betterment of people.

Han Li alias Hon Lik, a native Chinese pharmacist, was behind the idea of e-cigarettes. He lost his father due to lung cancer and was also an addict himself. We understand that people often shift to vaping to reduce the detrimental aspects of traditional smoking. The reduction in the harmful elements does not mean you cannot be subjected to severe diseases.

Many researches were conducted that proved that vaping has an edge over traditional smoking in medical terms as it minimizes the dangerous substances we inhale. Materials, such as tar and carbon monoxide (CO) that can cause several problems in a human body, are not present in the e-cigarettes. However, the question regarding the side effects of vape still prevails, causing symptoms like dry mouth, sore throat, nicotine addiction and cough, etc., that smokers might occasionally experience.

Let’s look at a few of the problems and their possible solutions:

Dry Mouth (Xerostomia)

Dry mouth, aka Xerostomia, happens when your salivary glands stop making enough saliva and results in dryness of the mouth. It is one of the most common issues a vaper would experience. It happens due to the intake of a few substances such as PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin), that are present in the liquid of your cartridge.

Use oral hydration products to relieve yourself of this side effect. You can also drink water in a more considerable amount to resolve it.

Sore Throat

The pain, itching and irritation in your throat are known as sore throat, which sometimes makes it difficult to consume food. Too much ingestion of PG substances stimulates your taste, or the coil material you are using in your device can also cause soreness in your throat.

Before taking any step against the sore throat, ensure what is specifically causing this action. If your e-liquid is behind the sore throat, you can simply change it to one which has a higher amount of VG. Furthermore, if your coil material is causing the problem, then replacing the coil would be your best option.


It is a misconception that vape removes the nicotine, whereas it can lead to nicotine intensification, depending on the e-liquid you are using in your device. Nicotine was used in e-cigarettes to help people adapt to the change with a lesser number of substances. That is why vaping was preferred in the process of smoking cessation for regular smokers.

So, if you feel that you are addicted to vaping, you must replace your cartridge with a flavor that is less influential in terms of nicotine concentration. There are also nicotine-free products available in the market. You can simply read their essentials, usually written on the back of vape cartridge packaging.


It is one of the most common side effects a smoker might experience. It happens to those who have started vaping, as inhaling vape can irritate your lungs. More than half of the people had suffered vape coughing when they began smoking it; however, they did not experience it soon after getting used to it.

As mentioned previously, PG is the primary reason why your coughing starts. However, there might be other reasons, such as the way you smoke, excess of nicotine and the type of e-cigarette you are using, along with several different factors.

Traditional smoking contains an anesthetic substance that prevents lung irritation. The lack of this substance in the vape could be another factor why you suffer from coughing.

There are many other side effects other than we have discussed in this post, but all of them happened because of your nicotine intake or PG. Other problems, such as adverse physical reactions, might also occur in your body. We strongly advise you to give up vaping altogether in this case.

If you are a retailer, you are advised to clearly print the advantages and disadvantages of your product on the box. Your packaging plays an important part for the customers and their health. You can find the best packaging solutions for your products on any leading packaging company.

We can conclude by informing you that none of the smoking styles will be healthy for you and you have to be careful about the product you are smoking as it can cause serious health issues for you. We know that it is not easy to give up as Oscar Wilde once said: “A cigarette is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?” But remember, nothing is impossible.
