How to Inhale Using a Vape

The way you inhale when you vape for the first time can make or break your experience.

The way you inhale when you vape for the first time can make or break your experience. Pay attention to this! Inhaling incorrectly can cause coughing or an unpleasant rush of nicotine.

There are two inhalation techniques: mouth to lung and direct lung draw. The ideal inhalation technique depends on the vape you want to use.

Mouth to Lung (MTL)

In general, MTL hits work best in smaller vapes with high resistance coils when using high nicotine levels, such as our disposable Gippro Neo. Taking a drag from these devices should feel like sucking air through a coffee straw, regardless of their size. It provides a similar kind of throat hit to smoking, making low vapor and feeling like the act of smoking. The process is simple.

  1. Slowly draw vapor into your mouth for a few seconds.
  2. Hold the moisture in your closed mouth for a second or two.
  3. Open your mouth and breathe in the steam to your lungs.
  4. Exhale after moisture is in the lungs.

Direct Lung (DL)

With low resistance coils and low nicotine, the DL hit is ideal for larger vapes. You will usually feel like you are sucking air through a milkshake straw when you use one of these devices. You will feel like this using our Tank device. Since it’s mainly used with low or zero nicotine, this draw style produces the most vapor and feels like taking a “bong hit,” but it’s considered smooth and easy.

  1. Quickly draw vapor directly to the lungs
  2. Exhale vapor almost immediately

If you can’t figure out the best draw for your vape, or if your device has adjustable airflow, the nicotine content is the best gauge for how to inhale it. As a rule of thumb, high nicotine (12 mg — 60 mg) is better suited for MTL, and low nicotine (0 mg — 6 mg) is best for direct lung inhales. Medium nicotine (6 mg — 12 mg) can be okay for both types of inhaling, but typically 6 mg is the cut-off for direct lung inhales.
