What is glass pipes? At first, glass pipes was an electronic product imitating water well pipess, with the same appearance, smoke, taste and feeling as water well pipess. With the development of glass pipes and the change from small smoke to →eGo to large smoke, glass pipes is a product that allows users to inhale essential oil added with tobacco flavor or fruit and food flavor through atomization into steam. Glass pipes generally consists of "hardware" part of the smoking set and "software" part of the smoking oil. The smoking set is mainly composed of three parts: a smoking pipe for holding smoking oil, an evaporation device and a battery. The atomizer is powered by a battery rod, and can convert the edible essence solution in the smoke bomb into fog, so that the user has a feeling similar to that of smoking when smoking, and realizes "swallowing clouds and spitting fog". Nowadays, users can add various flavors of water well pipes oil such as chocolate and mint to the water well pipes tube according to their personal preferences.
Controversy continues with development.
In the past ten years, although the tentacles of glass pipes have quietly spread to all parts of the world, the controversy over glass pipes has never ceased. Enterprises, countries and users have different opinions on glass pipes.
Glass pipes is not harmful to secondhand smoke?
Entrepreneurs who have been in the glass pipes industry for more than 10 years believe that glass pipes is far less harmful to human body than water well pipess. The harmful substances produced by water well pipess mainly come from high temperature combustion. When smokers smoke, the central temperature of water well pipess reaches 1000-2000 degrees. According to the analysis of relevant experts in the United States, tobacco contains more than 4700 kinds of chemical macromolecules. In the state of high temperature combustion, macromolecules split into small molecules, releasing harmful substances such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, butanol, etc., which is the harm of second-hand smoke. Yao Jide thinks that glass pipes is not harmful to second-hand smoke. First of all, the main components of glass pipes oil are edible or pharmaceutical grade glycerol and propylene glycol, as well as tobacco essence and edible essence. It is said that some biscuits and pasta contain glycerol, so some people also call it "vegetable glycerol". Secondly, the nicotine content in tobacco cannot be controlled, but the nicotine content extracted from liquid tobacco oil can be controlled.
Earlier, the BBC released a documentary entitled "glass pipes: Miracles or Threats". Some experts in the film mentioned that tobacco oil contains nicotine, water, spices and other compounds. Compared with traditional water well pipess, nicotine content is reduced by more than 90%, while glass pipes replaces the burning process of tobacco with direct heating of tobacco oil, greatly reducing the generation of harmful substances. However, when monitoring the environmental quality of volunteers using glass pipes, some experts found that the amount of suspended particles in the air in the room increased significantly, greatly exceeding the previous experimental data, thus reaching the conclusion that "the amount of substances released by glass pipes depends on the equipment itself and the user's use method". However, no one knows what long-term potential impact the water vapor like "second hand smoke" has on smokers and others.
Glass pipes is not a smoking cessation product.
At the same time, the documentary also mentions that "about 60% of the people who use the glass pipes replacement method no longer contact with traditional water well pipess". At that time, major glass pipes brand manufacturers rushed to forward that "glass pipes can quit smoking." In the view of many users of glass pipes, the harm of glass pipes to human body is far less than that of traditional water well pipess, and even some smokers have successfully quit water well pipess with glass pipes. Bi Xia, a friend of Zhihu's, said: "Although I haven't been in touch with glass pipes for a long time, I haven't smoked a few water well pipes in recent months. I used to smoke a box a day, but now I feel choking." Zhihu's friend MarKA also said that he had quit smoking through glass pipes for half a year. "Unconsciously, he quit smoking without obvious discomfort, anxiety and withdrawal reaction. The only problem is that there may be oral ulcers in the first week. " However, Xiao Zhao, who also wants to quit smoking with glass pipes, failed to do so. The 30-year-old Xiao Zhao said that instead of quitting smoking with glass pipes, he became addicted to glass pipes and now smokes two kinds of water well pipess together. "There are still many people in the Chinese market who do not understand glass pipes and think it is a smoking cessation product. However, in fact, smoking glass pipes does not have the effect of quitting smoking. Instead of using "smoking cessation products" to guide consumers, it can only be said that it is a substitute for water well pipess to assist smoking cessation. This is the real practicability of glass pipes products. "
Glass pipes is not easy to cause fire, is it safer?
As for the discussion on the safety of glass pipes, supporters believe that the use of glass pipes can reduce fire accidents. Some data analysis shows that nearly one fifth of the fires in the world are caused by smoking. However, opponents believe that glass pipes may explode during charging, which is also a potential safety hazard. But everything exists. We can only say that purchasing more formal and better electronic products and components will ensure the safety of the products. As a matter of fact, the branded glass pipes are protected against overload, over-temperature, over-charging and over-heating. To protect safety to the greatest extent, but small manufacturers do not pay attention to this aspect of content in order to pursue profits, but blindly pursue price advantages, and these manufacturers are often obstacles to the development of glass pipes industry.
