Vaping is the act of converting liquid into a vapour you can inhale. It’s that simple. An e-cigarette or vape is a battery-powered device that heats up the e-liquid and turns it into vapour without any combustion or smoke like a regular cigarette.
What types of devices are out there and what are the differences?
To help you navigate the world of vaping, we’ve put the devices into four categories.
Cig-a-likes look like cigarettes. They have small batteries and can be disposed of or recharged. They are usually cheaper and easier to use than other types of e-cigarettes.
Capsule Vape Pens
These pen-shaped devices use pre-filled e-liquid capsules that make it easy for you to swap between flavours and nicotine strengths. Their batteries last longer than cig-a-like batteries. Pens are popular with vapers who want to experiment with flavours.
These small, lightweight devices use magnetic pre-filled pods that click into place without pressing any button. Their compact design allows you to quickly switch between flavour pods and carry it anywhere with ease.
Open tanks allow you to fill the tank with your favourite e-liquid. They require regular replacement of the coil and frequent cleaning and allow more of a customized experience. For example, you can increase the airflow, which can produce more vapour and you can choose from lots of different e-liquid flavours.
Bigger and more complicated devices that allow you to continually adjust the performance by swapping batteries, tanks and coils.
What's in an e-liquid?
E-liquid is the liquid used inside an e-cigarette. Once heated to the right temperature, it turns into a vapour that you can inhale.
E-liquids are used in all vape devices. However, they are packaged in a variety of different forms including tips, capsules, pods, and bottles. Choosing the right refill depends on the device you vape with.
Consumer safety is our top priority. This is why, for our range of vaping products, we have established a comprehensive and ongoing product stewardship program so we know what goes in and what comes out of them. This includes extensive testing of our vapor chemistry and ingredient toxicology applying internationally recognized testing standards from both regulatory and public health bodies, as well as strict quality control of our e-liquid manufacturing processes. Only after having passed a thorough examination do we release our e-liquids for sale to our consumers.
Propylene Glycol or PG is a clear, colourless liquid and is often used as a flavouring carrier in food and drink products.
Vegetable Glycerin, Glycerol or VG is a colourless and odourless liquid often used in food and drinks. It tastes sweeter and creates thicker clouds than PG. The higher the VG level, the more vapour you get. The majority of e-liquids combine both PG and VG.
Most e-liquids are available in different nicotine strengths. You can also find some nicotine-free versions. It’s important to check that the nicotine-containing e-liquids you buy are from a trusted provider.
Appropriate flavours suit people’s taste preferences. Flavourings should be food-grade. E-liquids can contain other additives, so make sure to check the ingredients.

Our e-liquids come in five flavours and a variety of nicotine strengths.
All nicotine-containing e-liquids sold in Canada must meet strict quality standards and must comply with the federal ban on flavours that appeal to youth. Some e-liquids may not have met these standards, so it’s important to check that your e-liquids come from a trusted supplier.
