Understanding the Difference Between Vaping and Smoking

By November 9, 2018 No Comments

Many people believe vaping and smoking are similar or even the same, but besides looking similar when exhaled, here at Brookside Holistic Solutions, we’re here to help you understand the two are vastly different. Let’s take a closer look.


According to the American Cancer Society, over 7,000 different chemicals are found in tobacco smoke. Here are just a handful:

  • Cyanide
  • Ammonia
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Arsenic
  • Chromium
  • Ethylene Oxide
  • Methanol
  • Acetylene
  • Cadmium
  • Vinyl Chloride


Unlike the 7,000 chemicals found in smoke, four chemicals are found in vapor and each of these chemicals are FDA approved for human consumption.

  • Propylene Glycol
  • Food grade flavoring
  • Vegetable Glycerin
  • Nicotine

Smoke creates harmful chemicals when it is exhaled, causing harmful effects to others through the process of oxidation. Vapor, however, creates no new chemicals when formed.


Aromatherapy Vaping

Unlike smoke, when vapor gets created, no new chemicals are formed. The chemicals that make up a liquid are the same chemicals found in the vapor created from the liquid.

Aromatherapy offers a multitude of benefits including relieving anxiety and depression, boosting energy levels, speeding up a variety of healing processes, curing headaches, inducing sleep, and strengthening the immune system. Public Health England states that vaping is 95 percent safer than smoking.

We offer products that provide a simple, safe, and superior way to experience aromatherapy. MONQ personal essential oil diffusers are just one of the aromatherapy vaping options we offer using vaporizer technology to distribute all-natural essential oil blends in traditional aromatherapy combinations. We also carry Wellness Pods from Kinin.

CBD Vaping

A simple way to receive quick relief for the variety of conditions treated with CBD is vaping. The almost instantaneous effect that comes with vaping CBD oil is what attracts so many people. Easing the side effects of illnesses like leukemia, joint pains, anxiety, and high blood pressures is just a glimpse at the benefits from CBD.  We carry a wide selection of all-natural CBD products including Botana, Charlotte’s Web, Cannabinoid Creations, and many more.

Aromatherapy and CBD oils can be consumed in a variety of ways. Vaping is one of the most common, efficient ways to help ease pain and other sicknesses. Vaping is 100% safe when paying close attention to the intake and consuming all-natural products that can be found at Brookside Holistic Solutions.
