Whether you are a seasoned veteran or new to vaping, wading through a pool of equipment, e-liquids, or etiquettes can be frustrating. As it continues to become more and more popular, knowing a few things beforehand will make you feel comfortable during your transition to vaping. So, let’s get started!
Know About The Different Types Of E-Cigarettes
You may call all the devices e-cigarettes or vapes. However, there are several product categories. Disposable e-cigarettes are easily available at gas stations but aren’t very powerful. While pen modes and cigalikes are more substantial, they don’t satisfy everyone.
Vaping gets more fun when you can make your own vaping device. Rebuildable vapes are large devices that give bigger clouds. You can change its hardware, wattage, or temperature output that suits your preferences.
Direct-To-Lung vs Mouth-To-Lung Devices
E-cigarettes can be direct-to-lung or mouth-to-lung devices. It is important to differentiate between the two because you’ll inhale slightly differently using these two devices.
When you use mouth-to-lung devices, like pod vapes or e-cigs, you draw vapors into mouth before inhaling. As it is similar to smoking, new vapers often prefer it.
On the other hand, direct-to-lung devices create airier vapes that are inhaled directly into the lungs. You can choose the type of device according to your suitability.
Find The Preferred Nicotine Concentration
Whatever the type of device you choose, one great thing about vaping is there is a high level of personalization than cigarettes. And one aspect of this personalization is nicotine strength.
It can be quite confusing to find out the ideal nicotine concentration for the e-liquid you prefer. If you are a newbie, it is recommended to start small, examine, and slowly work your way up.
If you start with a high concentration, and you are not used to it, you might cough. Or, you may even turn off from vaping. There are many reasons why people cough when vaping.
Some are sensitive to propylene glycol, while others may not know the right technique.
Thus, when it comes to nicotine strength, it is best to start low and go slow!
Choosing Between VG And PG
Most of the e-liquids contain VG (vegetable glycerin) and PG (propylene glycol). Every e-liquid has a certain VG/PG ratio that affects its thickness, as well as flavor. As VG is thicker than PG, it needs to be heated more. Thus, you need a mod box device for e-liquids with high VG concentration.
High VG e-liquids also contain less nicotine. And, e-liquids with high PG deliver a sharper throat hit that the smokers using VG e-liquids crave.
Vaping Indoors Isn’t Allowed At Some Places
Even if you use the best classic tobaccos, tobacco smoking is already prohibited in many bars, restaurants, or workplaces. Similarly, vaping is regulated under federal and state laws. Some areas have their own rules on vaping. So, before you start, know the legal rules against vaping implemented in your area.
Know Vaping Etiquettes
Since vaping is new, the etiquette and social rules surrounding a vape device constantly change. The best etiquette is to use your common sense, though. Avoid vaping in enclosed or crowded spaces.
Make sure not to leave the vaping devices around kids or pets; nicotine can be poisonous. However, you can comfortably vape away in wide-open outdoor spaces. Furthermore, if you are renting an apartment, check the lease to see if vaping is allowed.
Even if you are unsure, talk to your landlord and make them understand the difference between vaping and smoking. They will have a better understanding of you and the other tenants.
Vaping Is A Fun
You don’t need to take vaping too seriously when someone argues about the pros and cons of vaping. Just remember that you started vaping for a reason. Don’t bother about what others think.
Pick out the best vape juice flavors, e-cigarette, chat with other vapers at work, or attend vaping conventions. It’s all fun!
