How do I inhale Vapour

Understanding vaping is 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 nicotine delivery devices, they require a unique approach. On this page, blu explores how to inhale vapour.

How Do I Start the Vapour Production?

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

Other e-cigarettes, like the blu PLUS+™ and blu GO™ 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 vapour should be inhaled.

Primer puffs start the process which creates the vapour inside the e-cig. A few short primer puffs help improve the flavour and increase the vapour 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 vapour 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.

Depending on the way they use e-cigs, vapers belong most commonly to two categories:

  • Mouth holders
  • Inhalers

Mouth holders are vapers filling their mouth with vapour before taking it into the lungs. Some vapers prefer to exhale the vapour without inhaling into the lungs. Mouth holding vapers will get a better flavour feel from an e-cig.

Inhalers are vapers inhaling the vapour 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. 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.
