Certain modifications are being made to make the experience of e-cigarettes better. Nowadays, modified versions of vape liquid called Nic Shots. These are the nicotine-free e-liquids that are used to make smoking less harmful one. They are comprised of varying flavours that give a pleasant feeling. Moreover, these Nic-shots are made, keeping in mind the rules and regulations of the Tobacco Products Derivative (TPD).

They have certain complications associated with it as the person inhaling vape liquid has aerosol vapours moving directly to the lung tissues causing damage.
