Heat not Burn UK Exclusive – AYI Review

AYI heat not burn

I think I’ve probably mentioned before that, outside of places like Philip Morris’s research lab in Neuchatel, I might just have the largest collection of Heat not Burn devices in the world. Although I’m mostly a vaper I actually have a lot more tobacco vaporisers than I do e-cigs.

Obviously the reason I have so many HnB gadgets is that people give me them to review, but to be honest I’d probably have started collecting them anyway at some point. By the time I started vaping in 2013 the technology was already pretty mature; within a few weeks of stubbing out my last cigarette I was using a variable-power mod and rebuildable atomiser. There have been a few tweaks since then, but I’m still using evolved versions of those devices.

CBD Vaping – What’s it all about?

CBD Vaping

If you’ve been following this site for any length of time you’ll know that we’re all about nicotine and how to use it in safer ways. Our main focus is Heat not Burn systems, of course, but recently we’ve diversified a bit and started looking at pod systems and nicotine salt liquids, too. If it delivers nicotine without the harm of smoking, we’re happy to look at it.

So if we’ll look at any safer way of using nicotine, why not other drugs? Recently we were talking about the growing popularity of CBD – cannabinoid – vapour products, which a lot of people are now using for medicinal purposes. Traditionally, most people who use cannabinoids have gone for a variety of smoked products. Obviously we’re not supporters of these, because as well as involving inhaling smoke – which is bad for you – they’re also illegal. Vaped CBD, on the other hand, is a reduced-harm product, so we decided that was right up our street.

Tasmania Joins The Junk Science Olympics

Tasmanian Devil

Tasmania isn’t a place you tend to hear of much. Apart from giving us interesting animals like the Tasmanian devil it just sits there south of Australia being quietly… well, Tasmanian. Well, I wish it would keep doing that, because the latest news from the island is not good for Heat not Burn. It isn’t true either, but since when did that stop the media – not to mention the usual crowd of “public health” pests – from making a fuss?

A team of researchers led by Dr Sukhwinder Sohal of the University of Tasmania has just produced a study which, they claim, shows that vaping – whether with HnB products or conventional e-cigarettes – is just as bad for you as smoking.

Science Special – Nic Salt Liquids

Vaping/Smoking Infographic

You’ve probably noticed that, as well as Heat not Burn products, we’ve recently started looking at nicotine salt e-liquids. If you’re wondering why, there’s a simple reason. We’re all about making sure smokers who’re looking for safer alternatives get the most effective products possible, and as much as I personally love vaping, conventional e-cigarettes do have some drawbacks. None of them are major, and all of them can be overcome with some practice and the right technique, but they do exist – and, for someone who’s trying to quit smoking, they can make the difference between switching to vaping and nipping out for another pack of Marlboro.
