How do I inhale Vapor

Understanding vaping is about more than just choosing the right e-cigarette and e-liquid; it’s also about understanding how to vape. This may seem simple, but as e-cigarettes are unique creations, unlike any other devices for taking in nicotine, they require a unique approach. On this page, blu explores how to inhale vapor.

How Do I Start The Vapor Production?

Some e-cigarettes, like the blu PRO™ use a button to start the vapor production. The vaper presses the button, this activates the heating element of the device, and the heated e-liquid produces vapor ready to be inhaled.

Other e-cigarettes, like the blu PLUS+™ and blu® disposables don’t use a button for activation. Instead, these devices have air flow detection systems that identify when an e-cigarette is being used. So the vaper simply has to take a draw on the e-cigarette and it activates.

Before starting, it’s recommended that a few “primer puffs” are taken on an e-cigarette. These primer puffs, which can also be referred to as dry puffs, are much shorter than regular draws (it’s suggested that they last less than a second) and no vapor should be inhaled.

Primer puffs start the process which creates the vapor inside the e-cig. A few short primer puffs help improve the flavor and increase the vapor production on the first draw.

What technique should I use to Vape?

Once the primer puffs have been taken, the vaper should purse their lips around the mouthpiece. There should be no gap between the lips and the mouthpiece; if there is the vapor won’t be taken into the mouth correctly. Take a slow, steady draw from the e-cigarette for around 3-5 seconds, depending on preference.

Vapers most commonly use e-cigs in one of two ways:

  1. Mouth hit: When taking a mouth hit, the vaper fills their mouth with vapor before taking it into the lungs. Some vapers prefer to exhale the vapor without inhaling into the lungs, and this provides a similar effect. Using the mouth hit technique, vapers will get a better flavor from an e-cig.
  2. Lung hit: When taking a lung hit, the vaper draws the vapor directly into the lungs rather than holding it in the mouth first. This tends to give the vaper a stronger throat hit.

When will I feel the effect?

After drawing from an e-cig, vapers should wait for up to 30 seconds to feel the effect. The time taken for the effects of an e-cig to be felt vary from person-to- person, so don’t continue to vape if something isn’t felt straight away. First-time vapers may find the sensation unlike anything they have experienced before but this feeling will diminish over time.

Vapers usually take around 3-7 draws per session, with a suitable break taken between each draw. The number of draws taken per session can be adjusted in accordance with personal preferences. Similarly, it’s recommended that vapers take suitable breaks between vaping sessions.

Once a session has finished, the e-cigarette should be stored safely and the battery charged or replaced if necessary.
