Extreme Ice E-Juice | A Breakdown
Menthol is actually a chemical compound derived from peppermint oil. It is also known as peppermint camphor and has a strong minty flavor. It is produced by extraction from the peppermint plant, or it can be made synthetically from the hydrogenation of thymol. Menthol has a lot of uses in society today. It is used in things such as perfumes, foods, cough drops, cosmetics, and liqueurs. Menthol can also be obtained from a plant called corn mint. In its solid form, it is a waxy substance and is a crystalline substance which is clear or white. It melts when slightly heated. The species of wild mint used to make menthol is almost exclusively grown in the Uttar Pradesh region in India. The compound traces its history back to 1771, when a scientist named Hieronymous David Gaubius isolated the chemical.
Peppermint is an herb which is a cross between spearmint and watermint. It is indigenous to Europe and the Middle East, but can be found all over the world now. Peppermint was first described in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus and found to be a hybrid. The herb itself can treat many maladies, including irritable bowl syndrome, nausea, muscle pain, and more.
In terms of smoking and vaping, menthol is known to increase the throat hit and flavor. Many vapors prefer this.
