In 2018, around 15% of American adults said they’d use an electronic cigarette before. In 2021, you can bet there’s a higher percentage now!
E-cigarettes (or vapes) aren’t as harmful as regular cigarettes are. Plus, they have some nice e-juice flavors that make vaping a pleasant experience.
If you’re thinking about starting vaping, then you might not know where to start. In that case, here’s a brief guide to vaping for beginners to help you out!
Types of Vapes
Let’s start with the types of vapes that are available. There are 4 main ones: e-cigarettes, pocket vapes, pen vaporizers, and box mod vaporizers.
E-cigs are the tiniest kind of vape, as they’re about the same size as a normal vape. On the other hand, box mod vaporizers are not only the biggest type of vape, but also the most complicated. For this reason, we suggest starting off with e-cigs and working your way up.
Parts of a Vape
No matter what kind of vape you choose, they all pretty much have the same parts that enable you to take puffs.
Inside the device is a battery, which provides power to heat up your e-juice into a vapor. Speaking of e-juice (or e-liquid), this is what you load into the vape. It usually consists of nicotine, flavoring, water, and either a propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin base.
Your e-juice is housed in the tank and is transferred to the resistance wire coils through a wick. The coils then heat up the e-liquid into a vapor, which you’ll then inhale.
Now that you know more about vapes, read on for some tips on how to vape.
Start Out Slow
You might’ve seen people blow crazy smoke from their vapes and you want to do the same. But take the time to get a feel for your vape first before learning some tricks.
Also, start out with small amounts of nicotine. You can always work your way up, but if you start out too strong, you might experience some unpleasant side effects.
How to Inhale
If you’ve smoked before, then you already have some experience with drawing out smoke and holding it in your lungs to get its full effect. If this is the first time you’ve inhaled anything, then here’s some advice.
Put your lips firmly over the mouthpiece and slowly draw the vapor into your mouth. Close your mouth to hold the vapor in, and then breathe it in deeply so it goes into your lungs. Then, exhale the vapor; you just might get a small cloud!
Visit a Vape Shop
If you’re ever lost and/or confused, a great idea would be to visit a local vape shop, such as Granite Vapor. Staff members are usually patient and helpful; they’ll be more than happy to answer your questions and help you pick out the right products for your needs.
