Vaping for Beginners

Vaping is an increasingly appealing way to get the nicotine your body craves without all of the tar and other harmful substances. Just make sure you know what you're doing before diving into this new trend, as there are some important details about vaping that aren't widely known.

In this article, we will give you the lowdown on vaping for beginners.


The Name Says It All

An e-cigarette is a battery-powered nicotine inhaler that is used to inhale vapor. This vapor is largely composed of propylene glycol, glycerin, water, nicotine, and flavorings. You can buy these e-cigarettes in virtually any store today, especially online where you can also find the best prices on e liquids.

In addition to e-liquids for vaping devices, there are also many other products out there that claim to be vaping oils without much evidence of their effectiveness.

The Rise of E-Cigarettes

Vape pens or e-cigarettes are being used as a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes because they don’t create the millions of harmful chemicals that traditional cigarettes produce. Vaping is gaining popularity and has been considered a safer way to get your nicotine fix, but it isn't totally harmless. 

The main concern with vaping is the presence of e-liquids which can have varying levels of nicotine contained within its vapor. While many e-liquid manufacturers are adamant about their product containing different levels of nicotine, some may not be as careful.

That's why it's best to avoid cheap e-liquids from unknown brands.


Buying E-Liquids

  • You will want to look for a reputable e-liquid manufacturer, because you'll want to make sure that it has a good product to offer. 
  • There are also some companies that want to market e-liquids as another vaping alternative without using any real science to back up these claims. Failing in this regard can lead to some serious health problems down the road. 
  • Using the right vape device is crucial in determining how much nicotine you get from each puff of vapor you take. There are devices that have just the right amount of nicotine and others that have so much more than they should ever provide. 
  • You should also pay attention to the size of the vapor clouds that your mouth produces and how much nicotine you get from each one. For example, a vape with 12mg of nicotine in it is going to be stronger than one with 6mg.

Your Vape Device is Crucial​

If you want a safer and healthier way to enjoy nicotine, then vaping may be a good option for you. Just make sure you know what you're doing before diving in, and make sure that you follow the proper guidelines when vaping so that you don't put yourself at risk for any harmful side effects. 

Safety features to look for in a vape

If you use a vape often, safety features are something you should look for when researching. These features will ensure that you are using your device in the most effective manner possible.

Temperature control is one of the most important safety features that a vape can have because it makes sure that your vape doesn't overheat during use. When it comes to temperature control, the higher the temperature setting is on your device, the hotter it will get.

Excessive heat can be damaging to electronic components, so this feature ensures that any sudden increase in heat will trigger “shut-off” measures to keep your device or e-juice from getting damaged.

Vape Battery Life

One of the most important aspects about a vape device is battery life. When you use your vape, you don't want it to suddenly cut out and allow your power to run out. When that happens, you'll want to replace the battery in order to keep using your device without risking damage from a dead battery. 

Depending on the type of vape you're using, look for different battery life estimates. The ideal range for a lengthier vaping session is between one and two hours. If there's no power indicator or display on your device, it will be difficult to know when your vape is fully charged or needs to be replaced with a new one.

Vape Safety is a Priority

The way the vape works is one of the most important things to consider because it can determine how powerful your device is and what kind of vapor you'll be able to produce.

For example, a mouth-to-lung hit on a vape will produce more vapor than a direct-to-lung hit. These two hits do the same things, but in different ways. Mouth to lung hits are great for tobacco flavor and nicotine delivery, while direct-to-lung hits produce larger clouds with less throat hit and no nicotine delivery.

Vape Flavor

You'll often find that some vapes don't have as many options when it comes to flavor as others do. With a lot of devices, you'll be able to pick from a variety of different liquid flavor options in order to customize. 

Some vapes may offer more than one liquid flavor option and have a “custom” option for even more flavors. Other vapes may only have a few options for liquids whether that be PG or VG, nicotine or no nicotine, etc.

With the right information, you can start vaping today and know that you're doing it in a safe manner.
