For those who are new to vaping, the first experience can be somewhat frustrating. For the most part, this is because people have a tendency to overlook the fact that a vaporizer isn’t a cigarette. It takes a bit of adjusting to get used to vaping especially for ex-smokers. With that said, vaping is very enjoyable and with the right technique, you will enjoy every hit.

Knowing how to vape well is vital to making the most of your experience. But this is something that a lot of people don’t consider. From knowing the best techniques for inhaling to finding the best e-liquid, a little research can go a long way to enrich your vaping experience.

Here is a brief guide on how to vape properly.

Picking the correct e-liquid

With a decision between e-liquids, It is extremely important to find a liquid which works best for you. The e-liquid that you use can make or break your vaping experience. You need to select an e-juice that has the right propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG) ratio. MAX PG e-liquids have a more rounded flavor with a more intense hit. On the other hand, MAX VG e-liquids have excellent cloud production. You may need to do some experimentation to choose to VG/PG ratio, nicotine level, and e-liquid flavor that is suitable for you.

The first puff

There are different types of vaping devices on the market. Some come with a firing button while you have to take a drag to activate the heating element in others. Whatever the case, when taking your first puff, inhale gently. Don’t take a strong swig like you do when smoking cigarettes.

Direct Lung or Mouth-To-Lung Vaping?

Short drags are compelling on a typical cigarette, but as e-cigs require a liquid to evaporate, a short drag won’t permit enough liquid over the heating element, so not a lot of smoke would come out. You need to take longer puffs.

There are two main vaping techniques: direct lung and mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping.

With MTL, you take a puff and hold the vapor in your mouth for a few seconds before inhaling it. This is similar to smoking a cigarette. However, with direct lung vaping, you inhale the vapor directly into your lungs.

How long before you can have another vape session?

To guarantee a long life for your e-cig, it is best to wait for some minutes after every session so that the heating element cools down. Sitting tight for a couple of minutes can also prevent you from getting a sore throat or throat irritation.

Is there a right way to vape?

In spite of these recommendations mentioned above, there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to vape. It is best to experiment with different vape liquids, different voltages or wattages, and different vaping techniques. Everybody is different so what may work for you may not be to my liking.
