Having trouble sleeping? Well, you are not the first and neither are you the only one. As humans, we all need our beauty sleep so that the body can rest, recharge and function properly. If that doesn’t happen the body turns to function abnormally. Let me put it this way getting little or no sleep can cause short-term problems like; Lack of alertness, impaired memory, drowsiness, relationship stress, etc.
There are many reasons why we can’t get enough sleep. It ranges from everyday stressors to genetics. But the real question is whether vaping can affect your sleep.
Well, to understand this better let’s look at Vaping and what’s in the e-cigarette cartridge.

First of all, you have to switch to an e-liquid with lower nicotine strength than the one you currently use or better still use an e-juice with no nicotine at all as it gets later in the evening, which will help give you ample time to get rid of the chemical in your body before going to sleep.
Yes, there exists e-juice without nicotine. Just like the thousand and one flavors with nicotine out there, there are others that contain ingredients that try to mimic nicotine, that is, they give the feeling that its nicotine of which it’s not and the principal advantage of non-nicotine e-juice is that they do not contain the addictive properties of nicotine. So for those who can’t do without their nicotine fix but still need their sleep, rest assured using non-nicotine e-juice if just a nighttime gig. So in the morning, you can get back to your normal routine.
