E-cigarettes majorly include nicotine, propylene, glycol, glycerin, and flavorings in liquid form that gets vaporized. They are made up of a cartridge, a battery, e-liquid and an atomizer that heats up ingredients in cartridge that creates a vapor inhaled by the consumer. They are tobacco free and do not produce any combustion, smoke, and odor. E-cigarettes function similar to normal cigarettes with visible vapor and an LED light produced when the user draws on an e-cigarette, E-cigarettes tend to offer a sensation (nicotine hit) similar to conventional tobacco cigarettes.
