Vaping for Beginners: 7 Easy Steps for Getting Started

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Believe it or not, more than 9 percent of American adults vape regularly. While that’s still less than the number of traditional smokers, it shows that more people are starting to get into vaping.

If you’re looking to make the switch yourself, you’ll find it to be a completely different experience. In fact, it can take time for you to completely make the adjustment if you’re not sure what to expect.

Use this guide to vaping for beginners and you’ll be ready to get started immediately.

1. Figure Out What You Want to Vape

Before you can start looking at different types of vape devices or learning how to do vape tricks, you need to decide what you want to use your device for. All vaporizers work in similar ways, but some are better for nicotine while others are better for cannabis and CBD.

Ask yourself what you’re wanting to achieve with your vape.

Are you looking to replace cigarettes or ween yourself off of nicotine altogether? Are you looking for a fun, flavorful way to enjoy marijuana or do you want to vape CBD for health reasons?

If you want to use your vape for more than one purpose, you’ll want to invest in separate devices. This way, there won’t be any cross-contamination.

2. Choose the Right Device

Once you know how you plan to use your vape device, you need to buy the device itself. Whether you’re going to be vaping nicotine or CBD oil, you’ll want to first narrow down your options between reusable devices and disposable devices.

Disposable devices are best for people who are working with a tight budget or those that aren’t sure that vaping is the right option. They’re cheap, come in many different sizes and styles, and can get tossed in the trash or recycled once the vape liquid runs out.

Reusable devices cost more, but they’re almost always higher quality than disposable options. Most come equipped with rechargeable batteries and feature refillable chambers that make it easy to change to different liquids as your tastes change.

Some allow you to swap out pre-filled cartridges, making it easy to switch from different flavors or different liquids without having to clean the device. Keep in mind that these types of vapes are incredibly portable, but the cartridges can be expensive.

3. Invest in High-Quality Vape Liquid

Simply put, low-quality vape liquid just won’t taste great. Investing in higher grade liquid will give you a much smoother and more pleasant experience.

When you first start buying vape liquid, only buy it from a trusted retailer. That means heading to your local smoke shop, dispensary, or dedicated CBD retailer.

Ask for their advice when buying your first few products. They’ll be able to guide you toward the right type of liquid for your preferences.

The last thing you want to do is buy from questionable websites, street vendors, or large online retailers. They don’t have the same types of oversight that regular storefronts do and you won’t know for sure that the liquid wasn’t tampered with before it reached your door.

4. Get to Know Your Kit

Once you have your kit together, take the time to familiarize yourself with it before you start vaping immediately. Read the vape instructions for the device and make sure you know how to take it apart and clean it before you fill it with liquid.

Read the information included with your vape juice or cartridges and follow any instructions carefully.

If you have questions about your kit, don’t hesitate to get help. Talk to the store that sold you the device or contact the manufacturer for more information.

5. Don’t Mix Flavors

Disposable cartridges are convenient and make it easy to swap out flavors whenever you want something a little different. However, they generate a lot of waste and they typically cost more than buying larger containers of vape liquid or concentrates.

Refilling your vape pen will let you save money in the long-run, but it’s not without its downsides.

Refillable vapes need to get cleaned thoroughly before you refill them. Yes, cleaning them will help preserve the integrity of your device and keeps things sanitary, but that’s not all. It also helps keep the flavors of your vape liquid clean, pure, and fresh.

When you refill the container with juice without cleaning it, you’ll get stuck with the residue from the old liquid. If you use flavored vape liquid, the old flavors can overpower the new one or, worse, make it taste rancid.

Take your time and clean the container anytime you refill it.

6. Start Out Slowly

Vaping isn’t usually as harsh as smoking. This means it’s easy to end up using the device more often or to take longer hits each time.

This can leave you feeling off at best and sick at worst.

Instead of going all-out immediately, start using your vape setup slowly. See how you react to the liquid and make sure you’re comfortable with how your lungs feel afterward.

7. Be Mindful of Others

One of the biggest benefits of vaping for beginners is that there’s no smoke. Instead, you exhale vapor, not smoke, and that vapor doesn’t tend to smell.

This makes it seem like you can vape anywhere without a problem, but it’s not always the case. You still need to be mindful of others and respect their desire not to be around it.

If you’re in your home, you’re free to vape whenever you want. If you’re out in public or at a restaurant, respect the rules that others are following and don’t vape unless it’s okay.

Taking the Stress out of Vaping for Beginners

Vaping can be a great alternative to smoking no matter what it is that you’re inhaling. This guide is the perfect way to get acquainted with vaping for beginners.

Just remember to invest in quality products and devices, especially when you’re starting out. This will help you get used to the process and allow you to enjoy the flavors of the liquids you’re using.
