Is Vaping Vitamins Safe ?

If you wish to skip the important details, then scroll to the bottom of this page to read the quick bullet point spoilers ...but if you wish to fully understand this question, then continue reading here. 


First: There are a few things we must understand in order to answer this question


#1 : VITAMINS

Not all vitamins are equal.  Some are oil based, and some are water based.  This means that some dissolve in oil, and some dissolve in water.  It is also important to note, that there are many different chemical forms of each vitamin.  The different forms of each vitamin offer different characteristics that are important to consider when vaporizing them.  Some of the important ones to consider are; the boiling point (how it reacts to heat), the oxidation rate (how it reacts with air and ages), and the most important to consider, how it may react with other vitamins and other ingredients in your formulas.

For example : Vitamin B12 comes in many forms, but the two most popular are Methylcobalamin and Cyanocobalamin.  Vitamin B12 is water based, or water soluble.   The other B vitamins are water soluble also (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12).  The wonderful Vitamin C is water soluble.  These vitamins will fully dissolve in pure water, when mixed properly.  Whereas Vitamin A, D, E are oil based.  They would dissolve in an oil formula but they would separate in a water based formula.   Most companies add mixers, binders and other additives to allow partial mixing of oil and water based formulas. 

Some vitamins are organic (meaning they are made by bacteria in a vitamin laboratory or taken from plants), and some are synthetic (meaning they are made in a laboratory from a chemical reaction).  Most vitamin supplements sold worldwide, probably 99% or more, are synthetic (made in a lab).  However the best vitamins when discussing bio-availability and natural compatibility are organic, and derived from wild organic plant sources and diets.  This is why any properly “educated” doctor and nutritionist will always agree, that the best vitamins come from a healthy well rounded plant heavy diet.  But, most doctors would also agree, that it does not hurt to supplement for those of us who do not have a well rounded diet ...meaning 90% or more of the worlds population.

Almost everyone is deficient in one vitamin or another during certain times in life.  When considering any vaping formula, with or without vitamins, the best rule to follow for safety is obvious, "less is more".   Meaning the less things you add, the safer your formula will be.

#2 : VAPES AND VAPORIZING DEVICES

There are 1000’s of different kinds of vaporizing devices.   Like vitamins, not all are equal.   Most use heat to vaporizer, but not all do.  Most use very high temperature heat, and this is bad for any vitamin formula.   It can harm your vitamin formulas causing them to quickly oxidize and react with other ingredients in your formulas.  In extreme high heat cases, they can produce undesirable compounds.   This rule is true for all things you add into any vaporizer. 

High heat is toxic …period.  From tobacco cigarettes, to nicotine vapes, to marijuana oils, the higher the heat, the greater the reaction potential.  
Short term low heat pulses is generally safer, but long term hits (activation's), with high heat can = toxic carbons and VOC’s being created.

The most important thing to note about vapes, is that nearly 99% of them are designed to create a “high heat” almost instantly.   Some can hit over 800 - 1200 degrees in under 1 second.  Most popular vapes work like this.  That is exactly why, in general, it is NOT safe to vape vitamins, using any standard off the shelf vaporizing device, and without extreme knowledge and testing of formulas, ingredients, and heat. 
 We do not recommend adding vitamins to your vaporizing devices …but the conversation does not end here.

#3 : THE HUMAN LUNGS

The lungs are possibly the most fragile human organ.  They are sensitive to everything.  Luckily, they can heal from most damage, but not all.  They are well equipped to handle a good deal of pollution in the air. 

Take for example, those living in Los Angeles, breathing soot for a life time, so heavy you can see it with your eyes.  In addition, according to the EPA, the levels of indoor air pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels, and in some cases these levels can exceed 100 times that of outdoor levels of the same pollutants. 

All the products we buy, and foods we eat are filled with toxic VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).   New sheets, new couches, paints, floors, woods, plastics, all contain and exude pollutants all day long that can damage our lungs.  The small amount of VOC’s and carbons “potentially created” from vaping vitamins is nearly negligible when compared to the counts in PPM (parts per/million) in the average home, or automobile.  Additionally, vaping is done in short pulses “normally”, a few breaths per/day, whereas working in closed air offices, school, cars, is 100’s of times more compounding in comparison.  But again, as we said above, “less is more”!
