Teen vaping drop for the first time in years. Minors have been illegally vaping for a very long time, ever since vaping become popular. No one really knows why teens have been vaping or what their motive behind vaping is. All we know now is that there is a teen vaping drop.
Sources have shown that only 13% of all high school students have said they have tried an e-cigarette/vape. Now, given the fact that no one knows why there are teens vaping, there are a few educated guesses we can make.
Reasons for the Teen Vaping Drop
Minors have been using tobacco products ever since they came out. “To get the record straight, I am not saying vaping or e-cigarettes are tobacco products.” Tobacco products have nicotine as their main active chemical. I say chemical because nicotine is a chemical. Teens use tobacco to get the edge of, as they say. Nicotine does have a calming effect, but it does also cause death. Tobacco is the only product legal in America if use the way it is intended will kill you. Nicotine is in e-juice so there are some things we can take from that.
Since we know nicotine takes the edge off and e-juice has nicotine, teens might be using e-juice with nicotine to take the edge off. I have to say I would rather teens vape than smoke combustible tobacco products, but it is highly illegal and vaping should not be done by minors. But that does not give a reason for the decline.
Nicotine is a psychoactive chemical. It releases dopamines in the brain, but the nicotine buzz normally lasts a few minutes at a time. If someone who does not smoke or vapes, vapes an e-juice with nicotine, they will more than likely obtain a buzz or head rush from the nicotine in the e-juice. A person’s tolerance to nicotine rises within a very short amount of time. If a person starts to vape and vapes for a week with nicotine, they will probably stop having a nicotine buzz or head rush. That is how fast your nicotine tolerance rises.
The Teen vaping drop is mostly due to the fact that teens are not getting a buzz from the nicotine. They probably go into it and get a nicotine buzz than within a week realize that buzz effect is gone. After their buzz time frame is gone, they probably think vaping is pointless. If you only want to vape for the buzz and not the hobby, then vaping is pointless after the buzz effect is gone.
So we can take that the teen vaping drop is more than likely due to the fact that vaping is not giving teens what they want. Vaping was not meant for getting a buzz or head rush. It is meant to get people off tobacco products and for enjoyment.
That is my two cents, comment yours!
