Getting Started: Vaping for Beginners
In the past 10 years, e cigarettes have become so popular that nearly every smoker has at least heard of them, but not every smoker has tried an e cigarette. If you’re a smoker, you’ve probably considered e cigarettes, but maybe you’ve wondered, “How Do I Start Vaping?” With how quickly the industry has grown over the past decade, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed, or to think that e cigarettes are a fad for millennials. It’s also easy to confuse e cigarettes that are designed for smokers, and mods that made are for more advanced vapers. When Vapor4Life was started by a former smoker in 2008, our goal was to give smokers an alternative that felt just like smoking. So, if you’ve been looking for an easy guide that covers vaping for beginners, you’ve come to the right place. The answers are much simpler than you probably think.
STEP ONE: Start with Disposable E Cigarettes
Disposable e cigarettes are the perfect starting point for someone trying to understand vaping for beginners. E cigs are designed to have the form factor of traditional cigarettes, and require no preparation or maintenance, especially if you use one of our disposable e cigs. Since our disposables were designed by a former smoker, they provide you with nicotine and satisfy your hand-to-mouth habit. Unfortunately, many of the disposable e cigs you get at convenience stores are not effective to satisfy the form factor and function a smoker looks for in a smoking alternative. I once got a free e cigarette at a bar, and I did not stick with vaping because it didn’t feel like a cigarette. That’s why it’s important to choose a well-made disposable e cig. Here are a few benefits to ours:
- Excellent chest and throat hit
- True tobacco and menthol taste
- 2.6% nicotine content
- Size and shape of a cigarette
- Soft, chewable tip
- Lasts longer than a pack
- Easy to use: just put it in your mouth and vape it!
STEP TWO: Move on to Vapor Cigarettes
After you’ve been vaping disposable e cigarettes, you may be ready for something that is more customizable and gives you an even more powerful throat hit. That’s where vapor cigarettes come in. Vapor cigarettes are slightly larger than disposable e cigs, but operate the same way. Most of the time, there are no buttons to push, but you can choose between prefilled cartridges or different e juice flavors and nicotine levels to use with refillable cartridges to help you customize the way you vape. Our vapor cigarettes were designed with the smoker in mind. Here’s why they stand out:
- Powerful throat and chest hit
- Customizable nicotine levels (from 0 mg to 36 mg); you can experiment until you find what works for you
- More than 160 e juice flavors
- Prefilled or refillable cartridges and battery
- Long battery life
- Voted best vapor cigarette on the market
STEP THREE: Vape Mods and Dry Herb Vaporizers
It’s totally normal to stick with disposable e cigarettes or vapor cigarettes for as long as you vape. Some people —as they get more familiar with vaping and need less nicotine— start experimenting with box mods and dry herb vaporizers. This is where the options become endless. Vape mods are those box-shaped devices you’ve seen people blowing giant clouds with. They are often operated by a push-button function, and can be customized to provide more vapor, a lower temperature, and other functions. We try out mods and dry herb vaporizers to make sure you have the best options possible. Here are some of the perks to mods and herb vaporizers.
- More customization
- Often use lower nicotine levels
- Sometimes rebuildable to personalize
- Good results with high-VG (vegetable glycerin) juices
Dry herb vaporizers are used with wax, CBD oil, or dry herbs (hence the name). Dry herb vaporizers are usually not to be used with e juice.
