More Smokers Seek Vaporizers To Kick The Habit

To say smoking is bad for your health would be an understatement. According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cigarettes are responsible for approximately 480,000 deaths in the United States annually, making it the leading cause of preventable death. And for every one person that dies due to cigarette smoking related illness, another 30 live with sort of disease attributed to this habit. However, there's a growing new trend towards the use of vaporizers and electronic cigarettes that could shift this trend in a different direction.

A report published by Bonnie Herzog, Wells Fargo Securities' senior tobacco and beverage analyst, suggests that the retail vaping industry will top $3.5 billion by the end of the year. To put that number into perspective, the vaping industry was smaller than $1 billion just several years ago. Why are so many people choosing to purchase vaporizers?

One of the reasons why more and more people are choosing to vape is because they are looking for healthier alternatives to smoking. Back in the early-to-mid 1900s, the general public really didn't know much about the dangers of smoking. On the contrary, cigarette companies would promote their products as being "doctor-approved," convincing the public that smoking was perfectly safe. But we now this isn't the case, and smoking adversely affects every major organ and system in the body.

The good news is that you can still enjoy the boost of energy attributed with nicotine without all of the harmful effects of smoking through the use of a vaporizer. If you keep up with our blog here at, you're probably well aware of the general concept behind vaporizers. Whether it's a small pocket-sized model or a large Volcano, vaporizers work by heating herb or oil just enough to create a plume of mist-like vapor. Since there's no combustion (AKA fire) taking place, there's no smoke, just vapor. The vapor looks and feels a lot like smoke, but it's actually just mist. This means smokers can consume nicotine in a safer manner  without exposing themselves to the thousands of harmful chemicals found in cigarette smoke.

So, what does the future hold in store for the vaporizer industry? It's still too early to make any definitive statements, but current data suggests that it's trending upwards. See for yourself why so many smokers are making the switch to vaporizers.
