What caused vape technology to take off so quickly? Surely they aren't that hard to make that they couldn't have been popular 10 years ago?

which is good, since most vape users are also homosexual. Maybe has something to do with paying hundreds of dollars for a portable dispenser of addictive chemicals, from you have to suck up white liquid to use it.

Smoking looks cool, and kids wanted to look cool without actually smoking.

>> No.65430350

1. Smoking is as unpopular is ever. It's common for people to be outright hostile towards them at this point.
2. Initial products were finicky and hard to use. And it was a small hobbyist niche, so no incentive to develop products. That's why it was all hobbyists moving things forward at first.
3. Now that the demand is there, tons of chink companies moved in seeing profit to be made.

>> No.65430624

Initial popularity was because they actually worked (if you put in any effort that is). I'm living proof of this because I quit smoking with vapes and then quit vapes as well.
And then, second wave was mostly numales/cool bros blowing clouds and kids who wanted to be cool.
I actually enjoyed vaping so fucking much it's insane, but I'm glad I quit it just because I wouldn't want to be associated with this crowd.

I stopped smoking hookah and switched to vapers because it's so much cleaner, easier, cheaper and the smoke doesn't taste like charcoal.
When I started smoking hookahs like 5 years ago I didn't even knew these things existed.

You're a condescending idiot, aren't you.
You're pretty dumb to think that everyone is the same and just because they smoke a lot means that they have to get cancer. It increases risk for sure, I don't know why other people deny that. But some people just have weaker immune systems and get cancer easier.

Having quit and getting back on the wagon several times over again. You definitely notice significant health improvements when you quit smoking. Everything from skin color, easier breathing (obvious), more energy, etc. You are breathing in fucking tar that coats your lungs, it's harmful for you whether you get cancer or not.

For the average person, those problems arent too bad and don't interfere with life.Also the oldest living person smoked cigarettes for most of her life, google her. I just hate cigarettes because of the smell, and the overall bad rep they tend to get(low income/social status)

They're fun and cool. Smoke plumes are fun to blow, you can put weed in them and flavour the weed.

All in all an excellent product.

Those are different. E-Juice is a completely different product than the counterpart "vape oil" found in dispensaries...

E-Juice vapes use different chambers entirely for Tobacco/Nicotine vs. Cannabis products... At least in places where it is legal to have the Cannabis oil, there are different technologies involves.
