The Evolution of Vaping


The Evolution of VapingThere are so many people that still think vaping is just a fad, that it’s too new and hasn’t been tested so there is no way it’s not here to stay. Well, here at Heaven Gifts we know that vaping isn’t going anywhere! So here is a bit more information about how our beloved e-cigarettes started out…..

The first electronic cigarette patent was filed in 1963 by Herbert A. Gilbert. According to the man himself, he said that it was obvious that inhaling burnt stuff wasn’t healthy. So he did what any normal human being would do and used “logic” to create a smoking alternative that didn’t rely on the need for combustion. However no one was really ready for e-cigs in the 60’s since most doctors were still openly recommending patients smoke cigarettes and the patent expired before any could be made.

Hon Lik, a small time medical researcher from China, hated his smoking addiction with a passion. Smoking was ruining his life, and he lost his dad to lung cancer. Hon Lik’s idea for his e cigarette literally came to him in a dream.

He dreamt that he was drowning in a sea. He was dying, his lungs were filling with water. Then, miraculously, the water he was drowning in transformed into harmless vapor that he could easily breathe. After a lot of research and trial and error, Hon Lik turned his dream into a reality. He released his smoking alternative to the international public in 2003. Hon Lik’s first e cig consisted of a battery, a plastic cartridge containing a nicotine solution suspended in propylene glycol, and an ultrasonic atomizer – yep that’s it!

As e-cigarretes were gaining popularity in the early 2000s a vaping subculture emerged. People began experimenting and modifying their own e-cigarretes configurations (who knew this curiosity would lead to cloud chasing competitions!) Hence why the demand grew for bigger, better mods. Nowadays it is hard to find someone who doesn’t want temperature control, or a higher wattage. And now there are even ceramic coils which don’t need cotton!

Regardless of your lifestyle or expectations for your vaping experience, there’s bound to be a set up that’s just right for you. There are awesome e-cigarettes on the market and they’ll only continue to get better and better as technology evolves. E cigars might have only been recognised by the mainstream public for a little less than 10 years, but they’ve already undergone quite the evolution – we can’t wait to see what people will come up with next!
