Smoke and mirrors? No illusions here; vapor and mirrors is the real deal. Smoking continues to decrease in popularity, while vaping is soaring. Users have gone way beyond the days of processed tobacco burnt and smoked in little chemical-filled paper tubes. Today’s “smokers” are “vapers,” and they’re of a different breed. Tech-savvy, in the know about everything, and impossible to push half-truths past, the days of Big Tobacco are numbered now that vaping has hit the scene.
As the industry continues to progress, despite the continuous talk of regulations, bans, and restrictions, clearly this market is headed for further advancements, greater technology, and more innovative products available to customers at a moment’s whim. What originally started as an alternative smoking movement, as an effort to offer smokers more options beyond just tobacco cigarettes in the conventional method, has become an industry all on its own. More than a decade into the existence of electronic cigarettes, vaping, as it’s known, is its own phenomena, and continues to push the boundaries of what smoking can offer.
This dynamic industry is fueled by users who are equally innovatively-minded. Their ever pressing desire for better products, more advanced mechanics, greater performing devices, products that are continuously pushing limits and doing more of what they want is carving the niche even further. What was once an industry filled with electronically simulated cigarettes, where the point was to emulate a tobacco cig to the T, is now going in so many varied paths, the cig-a-like has become an almost vintage-like pastime!
That isn’t to say no one is using e-cigs anymore, that is far from reality, but the industry is certainly pushing ahead in different directions. Vape pens, mods, DIY vaping, dry herb vaping have all truly come into the scene, and more and more smokers are finding product options that resonate with their tastes. Modern smokers are looking for convenience. They are also very concerned with their health and prefer the clear conscience being smoke-free avails. Thought electronic cigarettes were just a fad? Think again; they’re here to stay!
