If you are one of the millions looking to quit smoking and switch to vaping, here are the most frequently asked questions that can help you be a better version of yourself.
Question - Can vape juice expire?
ANSWER: Yes they can! Vape juices and e liquid's have a shelf life of 2 years since the manufacturing date.
Question - Can I quit smoking using a vape pen?
ANSWER: Here is a published article from Public Health England;
"A major UK NIHR funded clinical trial was published in February 2019. Involving nearly 900 participants, it found that in Local Stop Smoking Services, a standard e-cigarette was twice as effective at helping smokers to quit compared with the quitters’ choice of combination nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).
A separate study from UCL found that e-cigarettes helped an additional 50-70,000 smokers in England to quit in a single year."
Question - What happened with the vape lung injuries in the US?
ANSWER: According to Public Health England;
"vapers began to arrive at emergency rooms across the US suffering from serious lung injuries. It was not immediately clear what was behind the outbreak, which led to 68 deaths over the following months. You can read our advice here.
Based partly on the fact that the outbreak affected a very specific population and how the rate of new cases peaked and fell we wrote to the Lancet to explain that a “bad batch” of illicit cannabis vaping products may be to blame. However, in response to the outbreak, regulators around the world started taking nicotine vaping products off the market whilst tobacco cigarettes remained available, discouraging smokers from switching.
US authorities have since identified vitamin E acetate added to cannabis products as a “primary cause” of the outbreak. Vitamin E acetate is banned from UK regulated nicotine-containing e-cigarettes."
Question - What vape stores are open?
ANSWER: All Dragon Vape stores are open and offer Free Shipping, Free Same Day Delivery and FREE Store pick up on our Online Vape Shop.
Question - What vape kit should I buy?
ANSWER: Buying your first vape might seem intimidating. But the truth is that is really not that bad. The purpose of your vape device is to replace your traditional tobacco. We always recommend that if you don't smoke cigarettes, you should not be looking at a Vape pen.
You ideally want to purchase a vape device that will help you stop smoking by mimicking the sensation of smoking. Secondly you want to ensure you find a vape juice flavour that will keep you away from cigarettes and the right amount of nicotine level that is similar to your current nicotine intake from cigarettes.

Question - Is Vaping more harmful compared to smoking?
Answer: According to Public Health England;
"Only one in three adults in England knows that vaping is far less harmful than smoking. Yet in 2018 the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) found that the available evidence suggests e-cigarettes are “far less harmful” than conventional smoking.
Public Health England’s 2015 independent evidence report, concluded that: “While vaping may not be 100% safe, most of the chemicals causing smoking-related disease are absent and the chemicals which are present pose limited danger.”
More research is needed into the relative harms of e-cigarettes. Last month PHE commissioned the final and most ambitious report in the current series of e-cigarette updates. A team that combines authors of PHE’s previous reports with other international experts are starting work on a wide range of systematic reviews, including one on safety, to permit our most authoritative assessment in 2022."
Question - Is nicotine bad for me?
ANSWER: According to Public Health England;
"Four out of 10 smokers and ex-smokers wrongly think nicotine causes most of the smoking-related cancers, when evidence shows nicotine actually carries minimal risk of harm to health. Although nicotine is the reason people become addicted to smoking, it is the thousands of other chemicals contained in cigarette smoke that cause almost all of the harm."
Question - Is vaping harmful to bystanders?
ANSWER: Here is another article from Public Health England;
"The evidence is clear that exposure to second hand smoke is harmful, which is why the UK has laws prohibiting smoking in enclosed public places and workplaces. These laws do not cover vaping and organisations are free to make their own policies on vaping on their premises.
E-cigarette liquid is typically composed of nicotine, propylene glycol and/or glycerine, and flavourings. Unlike cigarettes, there is no side-stream vapour emitted by an e-cigarette into the atmosphere, just the exhaled aerosol.
Our 2018 report found there have been no identified health risks of passive vaping to bystanders and our 2022 report will review the evidence again. People with asthma and other respiratory conditions can be sensitive to a range of environmental irritants, and PHE advises organisations to take this into account and make adjustments to policies where appropriate."
Question - Are electronic cigarettes regulated in Canada?
