Nicotine Vaporizer Devices From $15

Why choose Candor?

Nicotine vaping can help you quit smoking by providing a safer way to inhale nicotine. Vaping nicotine is only appropriate for adult smokers who are unable or unwilling to quit smoking tobacco with other treatments.

For some smokers it is a short-term quitting aid. For others it serves as a longer-term, less harmful substitute for smoking tobacco. Candor connects you with qualified health professionals and pharmacies to help you transition from smoking to vaping.

Certain natural treatmets can only b presribed if specific criteria have been met. The main criteria is as follows:

  • You have a health condition that has lasted more than 3 months.
  • You've tried unsuccessfully to treat this condition via other means.

While these factors indicate you may be eligible they don't guarantee approval. For example, if you take medications that interact negatively with a certain product it may be deemed unsuitable for you.

Candor provides a free screening before your initial consultation that will help determine your eligibility.

Frequently asked questions

What is vaping?

Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling aerosol, often referred to as vapor, produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device. Vaping allows you to inhale nicotine without the toxins that are produced when you burn tobacco.

Is vaping safer than smoking cigarettes?

Yes. Most of the harms from smoking are a result of burning the tobacco leaf which releases a variety of toxins that are inhaled into the lungs and bloodstream. Vaping is not harmless, but it is much less harmful than smoking.

What are the harms of vaping?

Vaping nicotine is not risk-free and is not for non-smokers or those under 18 years of age. 

- Vapour can contain low doses of some toxic chemicals, although at much lower levels than cigarette smoke. 

- There is the risk of non smokers who vape becoming addicted to nicotine. 

- There is a rare risk of battery explosions in vaping devices, particularly if used incorrectly.

- The long term risks of vaping are still to be determined. 

While vaping is generally considered to be less harmful than smoking cigarettes, it is not completely safe. Vaping still involves the inhalation of chemicals and can have negative health effects.

Is nicotine harmful?

Nicotine is addictive, but it’s the toxins produced by burning tobacco that cause smoking related illnesses. Nicotine has some side effects, like nausea and vomiting, and can be harmful for children and in pregnancy.

While nicotine itself is low harm and has little or no long-term health effects, the addiction to nicotine can make you feel irritable, restless, unable to concentrate. People who are addicted to nicotine often experience cravings when they go without it.

What are the ingredients in e-liquids used in vaping devices?

E-liquids typically contain a combination of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, flavorings, and nicotine. Some e-liquids may also contain other chemicals.

Can vaping cause lung damage?

There have been cases of lung damage associated with vaping, including a condition known as e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury (EVALI) however this was associated with black market cannabis oil contaminated with Vitamin E. No cases have been linked to commercial nicotine vaping. 

Some early e-liquids contained diacetyl, which creates a buttery flavour. Diacetyl has been linked to a lung condition called bronchiolitis obliterans (aka ‘popcorn lung’) however the levels found in vapour were hundreds of times lower than in cigarette smoke and there has never been a case of bronchiolitis obliterans due to smoking or vaping. Diacetyl is no longer used in vape liquid.

Can secondhand vapor from vaping devices be harmful?

While the health effects of secondhand vapor are still being studied, exposure to secondhand vapor can potentially be harmful, particularly for vulnerable populations such as children, pregnant women, and individuals with respiratory conditions.

Can I vape indoors?

The use of vaping devices indoors is typically subject to the same regulations as smoking cigarettes. In many public spaces, including restaurants and workplaces, vaping is not allowed. It is important to check local regulations before vaping in public spaces.

How do I choose the right vaping device and e-liquid for me?

Choosing the right vaping device and e-liquid depends on a variety of factors, including personal preferences, smoking history, and health status. It is important to talk to a healthcare provider or experienced vaping professional for personalized recommendations.

How do I safely use and maintain my vaping device?

Proper use and maintenance of your vaping device can help ensure its safe and effective use. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for use and maintenance, including charging the device properly and replacing coils and cartridges as needed.

Nicotine liquids can be harmful or fatal if ingested and they need to be stored safely and out of reach of children. They should only be used as directed.
