Whenever people are engaged in any kind of activity, whether it’s drinking or smoking, the next question that they would inevitably ask is, how much is too much? Seriously. There is, of course, such a thing as too much of a good thing. You know this and everybody knows this. But the problem is, the threshold for many enjoyable stuff in life is not always clearly drawn out.
For example, when it comes to smoking cigarettes, some people can withstand quite a bit of smoke. That’s right. Believe it or not, a lot of people can tolerate quite a bit of tar building up in their lungs as they smoke one cigarette stick after another. They’re like walking, talking and breathing human chimneys and their lungs can take quite a bit of punishment.
If you need to reference a historical figure who smoked a lot of cigarettes over an extended period of time and still lived to a nice, ripe old age and died of natural causes, you don’t have to search for it. You only need to look at the life of the legendary Chinese leader, Chairman Mao Tse Tung to see the impact of long-term smoking. In fact, a lot of people who have been told to quit smoking always bring up examples like Chairman Mao.
But maybe the Chairman is just a lucky winner of the genetic lottery because the vast majority of people who smoke over a long period of time and at elevated levels aren’t as lucky. If they don’t develop lung cancer, they might come down with emphysema, other breathing-related problems, or they might open themselves up to seemingly unrelated cancers like pancreatic cancer.
I raise all of this because safety is always a big issue, especially when you are dealing with something that you truly enjoy. You might overdo it. You might just do it so much that you introduce all sorts of toxins into your system or you start some sort of biochemical chain reaction that might produce unintended consequences.
It would be great if you can look at life with causation in mind. It would be awesome if you can trace all the effects of our decisions in the here and now. Of course, nobody can do that because nobody can look through time. We are very limited or organisms and it’s really hard to pinpoint the cause starting at Point A and drawing a nice, neat line to the effect at Point B. But that’s what happens with life.
So how much e-juice is truly safe? Well, it all boils down to personal tolerance, as well as the amount of nicotine in your e-juice.
If it turns out that you’re just vaping primarily for the taste or the texture of the vapor in your mouth or in your lungs, you might do quite well with very minimal or even no nicotine. In this context, if you are using all-organic materials and you don’t have any allergic sensitivity, you can probably load up on quite a bit of e-juice from Eliquid Depot and would be perfectly safe.
Now, on the other hand, if you are very heavy on nicotine, you might want to take things down a notch or two because the nicotine level might trigger all sorts of chain reactions that can prove to be unhealthy to you over the long haul.
It really varies from person to person because everybody has different levels of sensitivities. We also have different levels of genetic predisposition
