About Menthol Disposable Vapes
What is Menthol?
Menthol is a chemical extracted from mint plants. Unlike Mint, Menthol is flavourless and merely provides a cooling and refreshing sensation. Menthol has many uses in medicines, health and beauty products, food and drink, and vaping products such as e-liquids and disposable vape pens.
Why is Menthol used in vapes?
As well as providing a cooling taste sensation, the menthol element in vapes is supposed to soothe the throat, preventing irritation and helping to prevent the coughing caused by nicotine inhalation.
How does the Menthol chemical in vapes work?
Whilst vaping, the Menthol in the vapour you breathe sticks to the neurones in your mouth, triggering receptors to sense a chemical change. This change gives you the icy/cool sensation you love. Often, you continue to feel the iciness for some time, since the chemicals can be stuck there for some time - just like brushing your teeth!
If Menthol has no taste, where does the flavour in menthol vapes come from?
Menthol vapes are usually flavoured with an additional fruit or tobacco flavouring added to the e-liquid contained within the device. Vape manufacturers recognised early on that many vapers preferred 'ice' flavoured e-liquids in their devices and devised a whole host of flavour and menthol combinations to make their vapes taste better.
How are mint and menthol disposable vapes different?
Mint flavour disposables are flavoured using extracts derived from one of the Mint family of plants, not by the tasteless Menthol chemical used to provide a cooling sensation. Mint plant variants include Peppermint, Spearmint, Lavender and Wintergreen. These flavours give a fresh taste often described as 'fresh mint'.
Are Menthol vapes legal?
In the US, flavoured vapes (including mint) were banned recently, although Menthol and Tobacco-flavoured variants are still allowed. Here in the UK, both Mint and Menthol vapes are legal. In contrast, a European Menthol cigarettes ban means Menthol cigarettes are no longer allowed in the UK, and smokers are now required to look for an alternative.
Which is the best menthol disposable vape?
There is no definitive answer to this question. Menthol favourites can vary widely from person to person, with some preferring sweeter, more intense flavours while others prefer a more traditional Tobacco, or fruit combination. Some prefer a milder ice hit, while others enjoy a stronger, more intense cooling sensation.
Ultimately, the best option for a Menthol disposable vape largely depends on you, and it may take some experimentation to find the perfect Menthol flavour and intensity for you.

Is it safe to vape Menthol?
Currently, the safety of Menthol-flavoured disposable vapes is being studied, with evidence suggesting the addition of Menthol may produce more toxic micro-particles than menthol-free varieties, leading to worse breathing and unhealthier lungs than with other flavours.
There is also an argument that Menthol vapes are less harmful than traditional Menthol cigarettes since they don't contain the Tobacco that produces toxins when burned.
It is important to recognise that the safety of vaping Menthol is still under investigation, and that it is crucial to approach vaping as a whole with caution and carefully consider the potential risks.
