Quitting smoking is always among the good resolutions without ever really materializing. However, if grandmother’s methods seem derisory in the face of the extent of the addiction, there is an alternative that makes sense: the electronic cigarette.
Less dangerous for health and more practical, it allows the ashtray to be hung up gently. But before creating big cotton candy-flavoured clouds, you still need to know the rules that govern the art of vaping. To enlighten you, Maxime Tricaud, marketing manager of Ecigplanete, one of the giants of the sector gives us an interview “good practices”. After this complete overview, the electronic cigarette will have no more secrets for you.
The Body Optimist: Can you present Ecigplanete in a few words? What is its particularity compared to other commercial sites?
Maxime Tricaud: “Ecigplanet is a site specializing in the sale of electronic cigarettesof e-liquids, DIY, PUFF and CBD since 2014. We offer a very wide product catalog with more than 13,000 references. It is the most competitive site on the market. Ecigplanete publishes offers regularly in addition to permanent offers: discount voucher, sponsorship, first order offer.
We also have several brands of e-liquids and flavors produced in France with original flavors. This is the case of Like A Woman, Eden Garden, Senshi Flavor, Ma Vape Bio, Cristal Vape, Cristal Puff, Nordic Vikings. We want make vaping accessible to as many people as possible “.
It is said that the vape is 95% less dangerous than smoked tobacco, why? What exactly is vaping?
“We all know quitting smoking is a difficult process and that’s where e-cigarettes come in. Indeed, several studies and testimonials prove that the vape is the best smoking cessation tool ahead of the usual nicotine substitutes such as patches, lozenges, mouth sprays or even chewing gum.
Starting with the 2021 UK study “The effectiveness of using e-cigarettes to quit smoking compared to other quitting methods in adults in the UK” who demonstrated thatquitting smoking with electronic cigarettes is 5 times more effective than without aids.
Not to mention that a report from the British Ministry of Health compared the harmfulness of smoked tobacco with vaping thanks to 400 studies, and concluded that the electronic cigarette was 95% less dangerous than tobacco !
In addition to being the best nicotine substitute, quitting smoking using electronic cigarettes brings other benefits. In particular a reduction of withdrawal symptomsaccording to the German study “Impact of vaping compared to total nicotine cessation”as well as a gradual recovery of tasteboth by quitting smoking, but also with the flavors of e-liquids more varied than each other. Significant benefits!
Moreover, even if the electronic cigarette is not reimbursed by Social Security, mutual health insurance convinced of the effectiveness of the electronic cigarette, offer a total or partial reimbursement of an electronic cigarette to their members”.
“First, to move towards electronic cigarettes recommended for beginners At Ecigplanete, we select models offering an experience close to the classic cigarette in the draw on inhalation and the amount of vapor released. Under no circumstances do we recommend systems that release a large amount of steam.
Then head towards an appropriate nicotine level based on cigarette consumption. 18mg being the highest rate, rather recommended for people who smoke 30-40 cigarettes a day. 12mg for people who smoke 20 cigarettes a day. 6 mg for people who smoke 10 cigarettes a day.
In any case, it will not be necessary not choose too low a rate especially at the beginning of withdrawal so as not to fall back into smoking”.
What e-liquid would you recommend to start a transition to the electronic cigarette?
“We recommend starting with brands that offer e-liquids in 10ml vial to have a nicotine e-liquid, like the brand Cristal Vape or Ma Vape Bio. Both are marketed on Ecigplanete.
Beyond 10ml of capacity, the law requires us to sell e-liquids without nicotinebut it is always possible to obtain a mixture in 3mg or 6mg using nicotine boosters, however these rates are often too low for novices”.
Apart from e-liquids, what do you need when learning about e-cigarettes?
“In any case, it will be necessary:
- of the resistors (kits usually come with one or two resistors). Resistance is very important, because it is what will produce steam and bring vape experience. The higher the value of a resistance (greater than 0.8 ohm), the less power it will require, the production of vapor will be light, which we recommend for beginners.
- of the batteries : there are 2 types of electronic cigarettes on this point. electronic cigarettes with integrated battery and electronic cigarettes with removable battery (more commonly called “batteries”). It will therefore be necessary to obtain one or two batteries in this case, the advantage is that the user will never be able to run out of battery by having a spare battery on him.
- and battery charger : in the case of use of batteries, it is recommended to charge with a charger intended for this purpose to preserve their lifespan. All these accessories are available at Ecigplanete”.
“There is no real risk. Electronic cigarettes are equipped with security systems limiting all dangers. Explosion accidents, as some media report, are due to transporting batteries without protection. It is an error in handling or in the purchase of batteries on non-specialized platforms. The batteries that we market on Ecigplanete all have a non-explosive chemistry.
However, we recommend:
- never expose your electronic cigarette to direct sunlightespecially during the summer (the battery will reach too high a temperature and in an extreme case may degas (and not explode).
- of always be present when charging of his electronic cigarette or his batteries
- of do not opt for electronic cigarettes of the mechanical type. They have no electronic system and therefore no protection. These are reserved for “experts”.
- of keep e-liquids out of reach of children “.
How is the e-cigarette a good substitute for tobacco?
“The electronic cigarette makes it possible to keep the gesture and one sufficient nicotine intake. It also makes it possible to reduce the dosage of nicotine over time to finally completely stop nicotine. On the other hand, by opting for flavors other than tobacco users will be able to to wean oneself also “tastefully”.
The electronic cigarette also has more success because of higher taxes. The price of a pack of cigarettes is more than €10 today. Finally, manufacturers are now able to develop electronic cigarettes simple to use and at affordable prices. Count between 10 and 15 €. A profitable choice therefore”.
