Others choose other flavors such as mango, mint, and cool cucumber. Some vapes even offer to mimic the taste of specific brands. A vape has many names. It is also known as an e-cigarette, e-hookah, vape pen, and vaporizer cigarette. It also comes in various shapes and colors.

Vaping lets you control your nicotine dosage. You can buy e-liquid in various strengths depending on your preference. There are people who choose nicotine-free e-liquid. Most vapers start with high nicotine levels and work their way down to lower levels. They then cut it off in due time.
