How does the Nuvo e-cig work?
Nuvo uses a small rechargeable battery, a miniature vaporizer and a disposable cartomizer. The vaporizer is activated when you inhale, which releases water vapor from the liquid cartomizer, simulating the smoke of a traditional cigarette in look, feel, taste and texture.
Can Nuvo electronic cigarettes be used to quit smoking?
Different people use different devices and/or methods to stop smoking. NuvoCig is meant to be an alternative to traditional smoking, not necessarily a smoking cessation device. However, many people have used it to aid in their efforts to stop smoking. We do supply cartomizers with staggered levels of nicotine, including non-nicotine, so that users have the opportunity to remove their nicotine intake completely while satisfying the other habitual desires of smoking. Please keep in mind that NuvoCig has not been laboratory tested to be qualified as a smoking cessation device.
Does a NuvoCig produce smoke?
No, Nuvo produces an odorless and harmless water vapor, which simulates smoke but dissipates in several seconds.
Does the liquid contain nicotine?
Cartomizers are available with or without nicotine, in varying strengths – so you have the option of whether you want nicotine or not, and if so, how much.
What is in the liquid and vapor?
The liquid in the cartomizers are water based, with 3 primary ingredients: flavoring, nicotine, and propylene glycol. Food grade flavoring additives are used to give you an enjoyable flavor, either simulating your favorite cigarette, or giving you a whole new smoking experience. Nuvo cartomizers are manufactured with pharmaceutical grade nicotine, except the NONE strength cartomizers, which (obviously) contains no nicotine. The dosage varies by strength. For example, a HIGH strength cartomizers delivers an amount similar to a regular cigarette. Propylene Glycol (PG) is a common additive in consumable products and pharmaceutical formulations. The FDA includes Propylene Glycol on its list of GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) substances for use as a direct food additive, and it has been used in asthma inhalers since the 1950s. Because PG can be vaporized at significantly lower temperatures than water, the vapor temperature of a NuvoCig is a much safer level for the human body than tobacco smoke.
Is an Electronic Cigarette safe?
Tobacco smoke is the biggest health hazard of smoking. It contains tar and carbon monoxide, as well as over 4,000 toxic chemicals – at least 60 of which are known to be cancer-causing agents, and many more that are suspected. Smoking an ecig has none of these because, there is no actual smoke involved. NuvoCigs deliver nicotine by inhaling a vaporized water/nicotine solution, thereby eliminating the harmful contaminants found in tobacco smoke.
A recent study conducted by researchers at Boston University concluded that electronic cigarettes were “much safer” than real cigarettes and may aid in breaking the habit of smoking.
Is a Nuvo e-Cigarette better for me than traditional cigarettes?
A cigarette is essentially a Nicotine Delivery System. It uses tobacco smoke to administer nicotine to the body. A NuvoCig is also a Nicotine Delivery System, however it uses water vapor as the delivery agent. Nuvo does not contain the tar, ash and carcinogens associated with traditional tobacco cigarettes. Nor does it create 4,000+ chemical compounds, during the combustion of tobacco as cigarettes. They simply provide the user with a simulated smoking experience using water vapor and a user specified nicotine dosage.
How much nicotine is in each cartomizer?
There are 5 levels of nicotine strength in Nuvo cartomizers: Super High (36mg of nicotine), High (24mg of nicotine), Medium (18mg), Light (12mg) and Non-Nicotine (0mg). For reference, a High cartomizer gives about the same amount of nicotine as a regular cigarette, and contains almost as much nicotine as found in a regular pack of cigarettes.
Why does it feel like I’m not getting as much nicotine as I do from my regular cigarettes?
Regular cigarettes are not just tobacco with natural nicotine. During the manufacturing process, literally hundreds of other ingredients are added. Many of these chemicals are added to help release the nicotine into your brain faster, open your receptors up more to the effects, enhance the effects, and prolong the effects of nicotine. It is normal for the first several weeks to feel like you are not getting the same amount of nicotine as you are used to, your body is detoxifying! NuvoCig gives you nicotine in a much more natural manner, without all of the additives. It is only natural that it will take some time for your body to get used to not having all of those other chemicals and additives aiding in the process of nicotine delivery.
How can I get the most out of my cartomizers?
Store your cartomizers in a dark cool place when they are not in use. Also make sure to place the rubber cap back on! This helps to prevent the e-liquid from evaporating and make your cartomizers last much longer!
