An e-cigarette is the most popular type of vaporiser but there are others such as box mod, oil vaporiser, wax vaporiser, and dry herb vaporiser. When you see people puffing out large clouds of vapour on YouTube they are mostly using these vaporisers.
At the 2016 SAG Awards, Hollywood actor Leonardo Di Caprio was seen puffing on a strange object. The environmental friendly movie star was vaping and this was probably the first mainstream shot of the alternative sub-culture.
In 2000, the e-cigarettes that are in use today was created by Hon Lik. Now an electronic cigarette is a device that vaporises a flavoured liquid known as e-liquid. Smoking an e-cigarette is called vaping because of the vapour that is inhaled and exhaled during this process.
