When you’re just getting started with vaping, understanding all the related terminology and the differences between various vaping tools can be hard. Vaping itself is easy, but learning how to vape can be a challenge if you don’t have access to expert advice. Check out our top tips for vaping that will make you into a vapor pro in no time.
Which Type of Vape Tool Is Best for Beginners?
Some of the tools that practiced vapor enthusiasts use can be a little bit intimidating to beginners. While box vapes might the best overall vaping experience, a beginner might have a hard time using this type of tool.
In general, it’s best to pick a vape tool that doesn’t have a refillable cartridge when you’re first starting out. Disposable vape pens are incredibly easy to use; to use most disposable vape pen models, all you need to do is make sure the pen is charged and suck on the end to fill your mouth with delicious vapor. While disposable vape pens can be wasteful and expensive if you use them on a long-term basis, these tools can serve as your training wheels as you get used to the vaping lifestyle.
As you gain more experience vaping, you might want to try other types of vape rigs. Some slim vape pens, for instance, have removable cartridges, which can save you money once you get used to filling cartridges with vape juice. In addition, pod vapes are small and discrete vaping tools that consist of small pods connected to miniature batteries.
For the ultimate vaping experience, you’ll want to try a box vape once you’re a vaping pro. Everything about these vape rigs is bigger and better; they have larger cartridges, batteries, and heating elements to provide you with the biggest hits possible.
Common Vaping Terminology
Here are some of the common vaping terms you’ll come across as you learn more about vaping:
The cartridge is the part of a vape tool that contains the vape juice. Some cartridges are removable.
The atomizer is the heating element that causes the atoms in vape liquid to move faster, which turns the liquid into vapor.
Vaping enthusiasts refer to the thick vapor they blow out as “clouds.”
A cigalike is a vape pen that has been designed to look like a cigarette.
The coil is the conductor of the heating element in a vape tool. Coils are replaceable.
6. Mouth hit
A mouth hit is a hit of vapor that you hold in your mouth before inhaling it or blowing it out.
7. Lung hit
A lung hit is a hit of vapor that you inhale directly into your lungs.
How to Vape
When you’re new to vaping, you might want to avoid taking huge lung hits, and you should focus on using your vape tool correctly instead of blowing the biggest clouds you can. Your first hit off your vape should be small; even if you’ve been smoking for years, vaping is totally different, and you’ll probably cough out the first tiny cloud of vapor you try to inhale.
To make it as easy as possible to use your new vape, hold the vapor you draw from your pen in your mouth before you inhale it. Lung hits can provide your body with more nicotine, but they are also harsher. As long as you remember to take things slow, you’ll be a vaping pro in no time.
Different Types of Vape Juice
There are quite a few different types of vape juice to choose from once you’ve mastered the basics of vaping. Here are some examples:
Nicotine Salt Vape Juice
Many vape juice blends contain nicotine salt, which is the extracted form of the nicotine found in cigarettes.
Nicotine-Free Vape Juice
Other vape juice blends might not contain nicotine.
Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin Ratios
The two substances manufacturers use to make vape juice are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). Most manufacturers make vape juices that contain blends of these two substances, and the amount of PG compared to VG in a vape juice blend is often referred to as the PG/VG ratio.
Other Types of Vape Juice
Some manufacturers make vape juice with cannabidiol (CBD), which is a non-psychoactive cannabis constituent that has semi-legal status in the United States. If you live in a state where recreational marijuana is legal, you may also be able to get vape juice with THC added.
Understanding the Laws Surrounding Vaping in the USA
Before you vape for the first time, you need to learn more about the legality of vaping in your state. Every state has different laws regarding vaping, and you could accidentally break the law if you don’t brush up on the relevant legislation first. Consult an authoritative resource to find out the legal vaping age in your country or state.
