Q: Does the Vape Shot create a smoke cloud like a Vapor cigarette?
A: No, the vapors created using the Vape Shot contain only the ingredients of the alcohol used and do not create a smoke cloud of any kind. There are no chemical reactions taking place to create any bi-products of any kind.
Q: Can I use Beer or Wine with the Vape Shot?
A: Although wine will work with the Vape Shot, please note the alcohol content in wine is significantly lower than liquors such as vodka and whisky and may not provide the full buzz experience you may be looking. In addition, because most beers are carbonated, we do not suggest attempting to use the Vape Shot with any carbonated products as it may result of the liquid rapidly expanding (similar to a shaken coke drink) when attempting to vaporize.
Q: Can the Alcohol in your blood steam be detected and measured by a Breathalyzer after you vaporize Alcohol rather than drinking the Alcohol?
A: Yes, because the Alcohol is absorbed into your bloodstream (via your lungs), the Alcohol you vaporize is detectable and can be measured by using a Breathalyzer.
Q: How does the Vape Shot Work?
A: The design of the Vape Shot efficiently and precisely pressurizes alcohol (within an appropriate bottle) and causes its temperature to increase. When the Vape Shot is removed, the rapid expansion and cooling causes the alcohol to mix with the air inside and vaporize.
Q: How does Vaporizing Alcohol get you buzzed?
A: Within your lungs are tiny air sacs called alveoli and are responsible for exchanging gasses (e.g., oxygen) from your bloodstream. When alcohol is inhaled, the alcohol vapors enter the alveoli and are transferred into your bloodstream. Once in your bloodstream, the alcohol circulates within your bloodstream (just as it does when you drink alcohol) and gives you the buzz once it reaches your brain.
Q: How long will a shot of Alcohol last when vaporizing the Alcohol with the Vape Shot?
A: A shot of Alcohol will release the Ethanol Vapors (the chemical in Alcohol that gets you drunk) for approximately 30 minutes, allowing you to maintain a comfortable Alcohol buzz. After 30 minutes you may want to consume more of your favorite alcohol!
Q: Is vaporizing Alcohol healthier than drinking Alcohol?
A: While alcohol itself has shown to cause negative side effects (both acute and chronic) and may lead to dependencies, inhaling alcohol has shown to have advantages over drinking it. As with any Alcohol product, it is important to be aware of the potential dangers.
Q: Why does vaporizing Alcohol leave your system faster compared to drinking Alcohol?
A: Because the Alcohol enters your bloodstream via your lungs and does not metabolize in your digestive tract, it leaves your body quicker – it is not sitting in your stomach waiting to be metabolized and removed from your body. On average any measurable amount of Alcohol will be out of system within 15-30 minutes after your last Vape Shot. On average, your blood passes through your Liver every three minutes where it is filtered (including alcohol). We can assume that after a few passes through your Liver, the Alcohol has been filtered out of your blood stream. That is as long as you are not introducing more Alcohol into your system.
Q: Can you taste the flavor of the Alcohol when you vaporize it?
A: Yes! You can taste the flavor of the Alcohol when you vaporize it – even if the alcohol is mixed with other flavors. As a matter of fact the flavor of the Alcohol is much smoother and easier to enjoy when vaporized. There is no harsh burning taste compared to drinking Alcohol. For the best flavor, use high quality great tasting Alcohol.
Q: Why is there no hangover when you vaporize Alcohol?
A: When Alcoholic Beverages are made, impurities called Congeners are formed as a byproduct when distilling the alcohol. When the Congeners are introduced into your body (with alcohol), your body will work to rid itself of these impurities by urination and drawing minerals from your body – leaving you dehydrated, out of balance, and hung-over. When you inhale Alcohol, you don’t ingest these impurities/Congeners so your body remains unaffected!
Q: Why are there no Calories when vaporizing Alcohol?
A: Protein, fats, and carbohydrates are the sole source of calories in food and beverages. During the vaporization process, proteins, fats and carbohydrates are left behind. Thus, you inhale the alcohol and not the calorie-causing particles.
