In 2011, the Government set a goal for Smokefree 2025. The goal aims to reduce smoking prevalence to minimal levels.
The Ministry of Health believes vaping products have the potential to make a contribution to the Smokefree 2025 goal and could disrupt the significant inequities that are present.
The potential of vaping products to help improve public health depends on the extent to which they can act as a route out of smoking for New Zealand’s 550,000 daily smokers, without providing a route into smoking for children and non-smokers.
PG (Propylene Glycol)
PG is generally safe to inhale, which is why it is one of several solvents used in asthma neutralizers. Propylene glycol is a colourless, almost odourless alcohol; it is a clear liquid that is used as a blending agent for e-liquid or vape juice.
Rather than needing to refill tanks or change coils, the pod is self-contained and is simply inserted into the device.
Every other aspect of the device is the same as a non-pod system. The atomizer heats the liquid and produces the vapor in the same way another system would.
