If you are a new vaper, then you might have found yourself disappointed with your early experiences. This is a common problem that people run into, usually because they are used to smoking traditional cigarettes and try to approach their vapes the same way. In fact, learning how to vape is an art form – but not rocket science. Here are some easy tips to get you started the right way.
Choosing the right vape
If you are brand-new to vaping, the first thing you need to know is how to use your vape. It’s best to start out simple with a device that’s designed for ease of use, portability, and efficiency. However, “simple” in vaping terms definitely doesn’t mean “inferior.” You can find very high-quality and affordable beginner vapes that will make it easy to get started and provide an excellent vaping experience. You will probably want an e-cigarette, a disposable e-cigarette, or a disposable or refillable pod system so that you won’t have to worry about a lot of complicated maintenance, especially while you’re learning.
Choosing your e-liquid
It can be a process to pick out the right e-juice for you. There are lots of choices to make, including PG vs VG, nicotine strength, and of course flavour (the fun part!). In general, higher-PG liquids provide stronger, more intense flavour and more powerful hits, while higher-VG options are great for people who want big, massive vapour clouds upon exhaling. No matter what, the best way to find the right vape juice for you is to experiment. Buy a few different types of juice (or a few different flavours if you’re buying disposable devices) and try them out. Once you’ve found the right combination of factors, your vaping experience will improve by leaps and bounds.
How to hit a vape
One mistake that many ex-smokers make when starting out with vapes is taking drags that are too short. This technique works fine with cigarettes, but when you do it with a vape, there isn’t time for enough liquid to pass across the heating element. Be patient and take a longer, slower drag, and you’ll enjoy a more satisfying session. There are two main techniques for how to inhale:
Mouth-to-lung. This type of inhaling is suitable for smaller vapes with more nicotine. It’s very similar to smoking a cigarette. You’ll draw vapour slowly into your mouth, hold it in your mouth for a couple of seconds, and then breathe it into your lungs. Once the vapour enters your lungs, exhale. This method is perfect for people who want to replace smoking with vaping.
Direct-to-lung. For a smoother hit, try the direct-to-lung method using a larger device with less nicotine. This is a simpler way to inhale that involves only drawing the vapour quickly and directly into your lungs, much like the action you would take to take a deep breath. Then, exhale the vapour right away.
It’s a good idea to wait a few minutes between vaping sessions to allow your heating element to cool down and also to prevent problems such as an irritated throat. If you’re looking for a better alternative to smoking, you’ve come to the right place – and now you know how to vape correctly for the best experience.
