Still a good aid for helping to quit, but perhaps not a healthier substitute (as first thought) in the long term?

I've just got a Horizon Tech Falcon tank with the mesh coil in it, wow some great flavour from this thing.
Using Tropix blackcurrant juice and it's like vaping on blackcurrant Tunes cough sweets!
I remember not long ago a study being done where they actually tested the effects of the vapour on the lungs (rather than just studying the components in the liquid) and the opinion among the vaping community was that they had in fact simply tested the effects of constantly dry hitting a coil.
No idea if this is that study or not but there it is.
This one is more about 'damaging vital immune system cells'
Researchers found e-cigarette vapour disabled important immune cells in the lung and boosted inflammation.Not sure how much is in it at the moment, but thought it might be of some relevance.

When PHE come out and back the study will be when I pay attention to it.
Does anyone vape CBD? Been watching a Joe Rogan podcast with Dorian Yates (my GOAT bodybuilder). And he swears by it for general muscle relaxation after workouts and for recovery, antioxidants and skin care.
Never vaped before, smoked for about 4 years a long time ago. Where would you recommend to start? If anything I'm interesred in experimenting as my workouts leave a lasting effect as I'm getting older (only 32 but been weight lifting for 10 years).
I have vaped CBD before. It definitely has an effect but the most effect I have had from dripping it under my tongue and swallowing it as instructed. Go for good quality ones as there is some tat on the market.
Yeah, you can tell the cheap shit from a mile off. Usually infused with some wacky flavour like 'berry blitz' or 'apple bonanza' as far as I can tell. Are there any reputable sites that you'd recommend?
I get mine from a local vape shop. I get this stuff https://www.koicbd.co.uk in the neutral flavour.

User name checks out.
Stark contrast to the article the other day.
For example, it said it was "unacceptable" that a third of the 50 NHS mental health trusts in England had a ban on e-cigarettes on their premises, when there was a "negligible health risk" from second hand e-cigarette vapour.
greater freedom for industry to advertise e-cigarettes
relaxing of regulations and tax duties on e-cigarettes to reflect their relative health benefits
an annual review of the health effects of e-cigarettes, as well as heat-not-burn products
a debate on vaping in public spaces, such as on public transport and in offices
e-cigarettes licensed as medical devices
a rethink on limits on refill strengths and tank sizes
an end to the ban on snus - an oral tobacco product which is illegal in the UK under EU rules
What's a good tank nowadays?
I've got a baby beast at the minute but the coils aren't worth a damn and last about five minutes. Looking for something that lasts a while longer with good flavour and all the rest of it and doesn't leak.
I do vape the really sweet stuff gourmet stuff which is probably worth mentioning.

Aspire Cleito 120 is a good tank, 100 watt (rated to 120 watt) 0.16 coils is what I use. Coils last me about 3 to 4 weeks, also vape sweet fruit liquid (monster melons is my fave). Only caramel flavour seems to lower coil life to 1 to 2 weeks. Never had a leak, and you can get a fatboy glass tank for it.

The glass bowl should be unavailable due to TPD, however not always the case as got one myself a few months ago.
Recently went nicotine free. Turned out to be an error on my part for reasons.
Today picked up an Aspire Gusto it is bloody great. Expensive to run, in vaping terms, but loving it so far.

Not had a cigarette since Friday, when I got hold of a Juul vaping thing. As a dedicated 20 a day man for way to long, pleased that this is working, it seems, so far. A 'pod' a day is about a packet worth equivalent, therefore costs about £2.40 a pack, 1/5th of the price. All good so far.
