A trip to your local vape shop can be intimidating for someone new to vaping.
This article will attempt to answer some of the most popular questions any new vaper may have.
Read on to find out things like how to draw and inhale on your vape device, what kind of e-juice is best, and if vaping is better than cigarettes.
Cigarettes vs vaping
One of the most popular questions asked about vaping is, “Is vaping better than smoking cigarettes?”
The simple answer is, yes, vaping contains far fewer chemicals than a tobacco cigarette.
Over time, as you switch to vaping, your body will begin to heal from the effects cigarettes caused.
What should you tell a family member over the age of 18 who smokes cigarettes?
If this person has tried to quit before, they have likely tried numerous methods — patches, gum, cold turkey, or pills.
You could tell them to try vaping.
Vaping allows them to still receive nicotine, feel like they are smoking cigarettes to some degree, and have far less side effects than cigarette smoking or other cessation methods.
Using a vape device
People who are new to vaping may want to know how to use a vape device.
The answer is simple.
There are two ways to activate the drawing process, which depends on your device — press and hold a button while drawing or sensored draw, which does not include a button.
After initiating the draw process by pressing the button or beginning to pull from the mouthpiece, you should continue to draw for 3-5 seconds.
Hold the vapour in your mouth for a few seconds, inhale it into your lungs, then exhale the vapour.
Another important question usually revolves around refilling the tank or pod.
To refill the pod, pull it off the device, and look for the hole with a silicone stopper.
Add the e-juice through the hole until the pod is nearly full, then replace the stopper and connect the pod back onto your device.
Finding the best e-juice
There are so many types and flavours of e-juice that it is easy to get overwhelmed with the variety.
The first question we will discuss is, “what is e-juice?”
E-juice is a liquid typically containing vegetable glycerine (VG), propylene glycol (PG), nicotine, and flavouring.
This liquid is used by the oil or atomiser to be heated and turned into an aerosol or vapour that you inhale.
The next question revolves around the best e-juice for a beginner to use.
Most first time vapers use tobacco flavour as they adjust to vaping.
You can also use a berry or other mellow flavour.
Stay away from strong, sweet, and creamy flavours until you adjust to the vaping process.
A cigarette contains over 4,000 harmful chemicals, including tar.
Vaping contains no tar and far fewer chemicals, making it better for you and the environment.
To use a vape device, draw on the device for around 3 to 5 seconds, hold the vapour in your mouth, inhale the vapour, then exhale.
The best e-juice for beginners is a simple flavour which is not creamy, strong, or overly sweet.
