WARNING: Please Read Carefully Before Using Our Products
Vaping products contain nicotine. Nicotine is highly addictive. Vaping products also release chemicals that can harm your health. Youth and adult non-smokers should not vape.
Nicotine is not known to cause cancer. Vaping with nicotine could:
- lead to dependence
- cause nicotine addiction among users who would not have started using nicotine otherwise (e.g. smoking)
Children and youth are especially susceptible to the harmful effects of nicotine, including addiction. They may become dependent on nicotine with lower levels of exposure than adults. Vaping liquid containing nicotine is poisonous, particularly to young children.
- can affect memory and concentration
- is known to alter teen brain development
Exposure to nicotine during adolescence may cause
- reduced impulse control
- cognitive and behavioral problems
Vaping may predispose youth to addiction to nicotine and possibly other drugs.
Vaping substances have fewer and different chemicals than in tobacco products. Vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol are the main liquids in vaping products. These are considered safe for use in many consumer products such as cosmetics and sweeteners. However, the long-term safety of inhaling the substances in vaping products is unknown and continues to be assessed.
The amount of substances (including nicotine) a person can be exposed to by vaping is affected by the:
- battery power
- type of vaping device
- settings on the device
- combination of internal components
- type of vaping liquid and amount of nicotine
- user behavior patterns
- user’s experience with vaping
Some of these chemicals and contaminants are linked to negative health effects. However, the amount of chemicals and contaminants in vapour is normally at much lower levels than in cigarette smoke. Talk to your health care provider about your options of quitting nicotine during pregnancy.
Second-hand vapour is not harmless but it does contain far fewer chemicals than second-hand smoke. Bystanders can be exposed to vapour that is exhaled by users. The health effects from exposure to second-hand vapour are still unknown. However, the risks are expected to be much lower compared to smoke from a tobacco product. We recommend that users be cautious around non-users and youth.
Tips to handle vaping liquids safely
- Store out of sight and reach of young children and pets.
- Store vaping liquid in a cool, dry place where it cannot be confused for food, drinks, or medicine.
- Close the container securely after each use.
- Wash your hands immediately after handling vaping liquid.
- If someone has swallowed vaping liquids, seek emergency medical attention or call 9-1-1.
Tips to prevent injuries from batteries and vaping devices
- Do not modify your device.
- Buy batteries that are compatible with your device.
- Buy batteries from a trusted source.
- Do not carry lithium-ion batteries in your pocket or anywhere they can come into contact with loose coins, keys or other metal objects. Lithium-ion batteries can overheat, catch fire or even explode when in contact with metal objects. Incidents have caused serious injuries.
- Keep spare batteries in a protective case.
- Read the manufacturer’s instructions for storing and recharging your device.
- Do not exceed the recommended charging time.
- Store out of sight and reach of young children and pets.
If you notice a safety problem with a vaping device or vaping liquid, you can report the problem to the manufacturer or retailer.
If you experience any side effects, or possible side effects, stop using the product immediately and consult a physician. We want everyone to be safe so we can all continue to enjoy vaping and other harm reduction tools. Please use safe disposal methods for any products containing nicotine or batteries.
NICOTINE OVERDOSE SYMPTOMS MAY INCLUDE vomiting, nausea and/or diarrhea; headaches; troubled breathing; paleness of skin; sweating; heart palpitations; stomach cramps; drooling; and fatigue.
If you get any e-liquid on your skin or clothing, wash it off immediately with soap and cold water.
