The History of Vaping

Vaping has been around for longer than you think, so today I thought I'd look at how vaping began and how it got to the popular state it is today.

The Earliest Forms Of Vaping

Vaporizing has a long history.In Ancient Egypt,people were heating herbs and oils on hot stones to vape. Then, more than 1500 years ago, Irfan Shiekh invented the first shisha. This happened in another ancient part of the world in what is now Afghanistan. Later on, his dynasty introduced this way of smoking in India. All those techniques led to the invention of current vapes as we know them today.

The Invention of the E-Cigarette

The first person to come up with the idea of an e-cigarette was Joseph Robinson in 1927. However, it wasn't until 1963 when Herbert Gilbert and his “smokeless non-tobacco cigarette” made vaping popular.He patented his invention in 1965. Unfortunately, nobody knew of his “smokeless non-tobacco cigarette” back then.

In the 1980s, Phil Ray and Normal Jacobson worked more towards profiting from the idea of e-cigarettes, but, in the 90s, the FDA didn’t allow tobacco companies to introduce e-cigarettes to the market.

Vaping was also popular in Europe. In the 90s in Amsterdam, Bill Amato invented the cannabis vaporizer. they based the German stationary/desktop vaporizer Volcano, from 2000, on his revolutionary ideas. All of those events led to the invention of vapes as we know them today.

Modern History

In the 2000s, the Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik made the first e-cigarette. In 2006, his employer Ruyan Group helped him introduce his invention to the world. this was done for his father, who died from lung cancer due to smoking is the sad answer.

The first e-cigarette appeared in the U.S. in 2007 and has since become a very popular trend among people. Since then, vaporizers have gone through many modifications. Umer and Tariq Sheikh made e-cigs more customer-friendly by inventing the cartomizer.

Vaping continues to change all the time, with the introduction of new technology and new brands, so the future also holds some interesting changes to vaping. Happy Vaping!
