IQOS What is Inside?
In a world where Corona exists, the virus I mean, protecting your lungs has become more important than ever. Don’t get me wrong, it indeed is one of your vital organs, but for some of us nicotine is a little harder to quit than others. For those who are willing to choose a safer and better way to get nicotine in the system, IQOS would be your safest bet. So, questions may arise like, what is IQOS? What’s inside IQOS, how does it work?
Sit tight and let me explain the whole process in simple sentences. And those of you who already know everything there is to know about IQOS, give me a shout out in your blogs, will ya?
What is IQOS?
You probably have heard of e-cigarettes (electronic cigarettes), right? You can call IQOS a version of them. This is special device that is made for smoker to have a similar sensation of smoking without the harm. But wait, what would that mean? Can you just charge your IQOS and get smoking? Lol, Nah! That would be too good to be true. These devices need to be booted with Heat sticks. Those are the main juice to your IQOS device.
Food for thought – IQOS stands for ‘I Quit Ordinary Smoking’.
Heat sticks are nicotinic pouches. You put them in your IQOS device, turn them up and voila! So, you might wonder, if these devices are ultimately filled with nicotine, then how on earth would they be less harmful than your good old cigarette? Because Science! Lol. Let me explain.
When you lit up a cigarette, you are actually burning it, thus that reaches its combustion point. However, when you turn on an IQOS device Dubai, you are just heating up the heat stick and that creates a vapor which smells and tastes like the real thing. In your brain it’s the same but in effect and to your body its not, Science! Told you!
So, yeah, tomato tomato! It’s the same thing but your body will be able to tell the difference and save you a little bit of harm, bringing on a greater positive change in the long run. Don’t forget, the best option here is still not to smoke at all, but it is what it is! I get you pal.
What is Actually Inside the Device?
Well, the device itself consists many promising key ingredients like a rechargeable lithium-ion battery; a software controlled temperature control element; heat blades made out of gold, platinum and ceramic; last but not the least a heat stick which is the main portion of the whole concussion.
To give you the unboxing experience without dropping $150 to $200 on the device first (depends on your location) I can tell you that it comes with its own charging pod, and the actual IQOS device. Theres a USB port also for easy charging access on the charging pod. Also, a cleaning tool, you are supposed to use it to clean out your device, once every day for the best user experience. That’s pretty much it you guys, sorry to disappoint (?).
The box itself is pretty minimalistic. Oh, and in case if you are wondering, are they FDA approved? Yeah, somehow, they did get the approval seal by the FDA, pretty phenomenal if you ask me.
What Am I Smoking with This Device Again? Heat what?
Heat sticks. You will be smoking slash heating the heat sticks which are nicotinic pouches that comes in various different flavors, but mostly minty. That’s what my experience is with the heat sticks flavors to the least. To consumers, the name is marketed as HEET sticks, to sound cooler, I think.
What Are Heat Sticks? What’s Inside It?
On to the exciting part, what are these heat sticks, what is the shenanigan about? These sticks are a fancier version of your good old nicotine. First of all, a lot of tobacco leaves are collected and crushed up to make a powder of tobacco. Then they mix a liquid containing flavors of different kinds, and mix it up with the tobacco powder. After the initial mixing of powder and the flavor, a dough is formed with it and rolled out in thin sheets of dough.
After which they are dried again and crushed. At this stage they are dyed in different colors too and once again, the flavoring gets added in it. Lastly, they sheet gets cut into strip to be crumbled again and be given a shape of tobacco at its final stage. Ugh, that’s a long process!
Is IQOS Really That Different from Cigarettes?
My friend, I have been nothing but honest to you in each and every piece of my writing. So, I will give you the truth here. I really don’t know the exact answer, but I can help you raise some more questions regarding this, which is the Socrates way of questioning things. (The famous philosopher Socrates used to answer everything with a question which led people to think critically and objectively, which eventually led them into finding the answer to the initial question asked)
IQOS do not burn but heat the nicotine, which means there is still nicotine or tobacco in there. Also, it’s not like the added flavoring mask the sensation too much, if it did then there would be no point in such invention, would there? Heating and burning, the two events surely do create different consequences but to what extent does that matter? These are the question that you can answer to find out if they actually are all that different and harmless.
To sum it up, IQOS are the results of extensive research and development of several years. Scientists have come up with this revolutionary device to cater to our urges while minimizing the harm. This is in no shape or form a promotion of smoking, however, if you already are a smoker, this is a simple yet effective change you can make to minimize damage. So, my advice to you would be to definitely give them a whirl, and let me know how you like them in the comments below. Ciao!
