Vaping in Canada – conclusion
There is a significant difference between the perception of vaping products between residents of states with restrictions and residents of states with no restrictions on nicotine content. In short, we can say that the group of respondents was divided into provinces with restrictions to sell e-liquids with up to 20mg/ml, and provides with no such restrictions.
For example, 31% of surveyed users in provinces with restrictions on nicotine content in e-liquids believe that nicotine itself can be harmful, while users from non-restricted provinces responded the same way only in 22% of the cases.
It is similar when it comes to the declaration to switch devices that provide lower nicotine doses. 11% of vapers who live in provinces with a tightened e-liquid policy declared their willingness to change the device. On the other hand in provinces without restrictions only 6% of respondents declared to switch device.
The percentage of vapers who decided to quit vaping completely was similarly low in both types of provinces. In the case of provinces with restrictions, it was around 2%, while in provinces without restrictions it was almost zero.
