Basic But Proper Vaping Techniques

Posted by Andrew Gonzalez on

The Vaping Method

There are several different inhaling techniques when vaping. Which techniques are best, however, comes down to the opinions of each individual vaper. Many vapers don't give a second thought to vaping techniques, or how their mouth connects when inhaling. Learning the proper techniques can greatly improve the experience.

There are two techniques that're most common among vapers: the Mouth Inhale and the Lung Hit. Both of which produce different effects. The Mouth Inhale is commonly compared to smoking a cigarette, while the Lung Hit is similar to taking a hit from a bong. The variety of different approaches offer many different results, which can help with anything from chain vaping, cloud chasing, or enhancing the e-juice flavor.

Priming The Puff

Many vapers start off by taking primer puffs, or rapidly inhaling to quickly heat up the coil. This readies the atomizer for vaping without having to take in any vapor. While this technique isn't entirely necessary, it does prolong the atomizer's life.

Hold Before Exhale

After inhaling, the vapor should be held in the mouth for a few seconds. This allows the nicotine to be absorbed through the mouth before the lungs and then the nose. After a brief hold, the vapor cloud can be exhaled.

The Mouth Inhale

There are some vapers that do not like to inhale vapor. Instead of this, they suck the vapor through their mouth and exhale slowly afterwards. It's argued that this method is overly wasteful, since the nicotine cannot be absorbed entirely. There are those, however, that state nicotine is easily absorbed through the membranes in the mouth. In any case, this technique is one of the less harsh ways to vape and allows for savoring the flavors.

The Lung Hit

This method requires inhaling directly into the lungs while drawing from the equipment, similar to a cigarette. This technique can be difficult for many vapers, as it requires forming a seal with the lips around the device, which restricts airflow. For those wanting an experience similar to a regular cigarette, this is the ideal method. It's important to note this method can be harsh, especially with liquids containing high nicotine.

When All Is Said And Done

While the best techniques vary from one vaper to the next, there are some basics that everybody should be aware of. The beginners may find it too difficult to do the Lung Hit because it can be very overpowering, in this case it would be best to try out the Mouth Inhale technique. Different methods will work better or worse depending on the situation. Sometimes after a stressful day, a deep lung hit can hit the spot. While casually vaping through the day may be best suited to soft hits. It's important to remember the basics, but part of the fun to vaping will be in finding one's own preferences.
