Don't Give a lot of Thought to the Look
Some people assume that buying a vape that looks almost like the real one will take their mind off the cigarettes, and they can quickly adapt to the vapes where they trick their mind into thinking they are still smoking. However, those small devices won't provide you with the same feeling you crave.
The cravings that hit you when you go cold turkey are not pretty, and the chances of getting back to tobacco are very high. Take a look at these vape kits, which will deliver a great vaping experience for a starter like you.
Get a Decent Vaping Kit
There is a lot of hype on vaping kits, and you may be caught up in wanting to buy the fanciest or futuristic-looking ones. Don’t get caught up in the hype of wanting to look edgy and blowing lots of smoke. If you are serious about starting to vape, you should start with a simple vaping kit that can start you off easy until you get the hang of it.
Vaping kits can get confusing, especially when you don’t understand what you are doing, and can essentially ruin the vaping experience for you. Once you get the right vaping kit and the right liquid for you, you'll find vaping is uncomplicated, and affordable compared to smoking, and far less harsh on your overall health.
Test Out Different Vaping Liquids Until You Find the Right Fit for You
There are numerous flavors available of e-juices you can buy. It’s best if you test a bunch of them to find the one that gives you the best experience. If you have a sweet tooth check out the different fruity flavored types, and if you prefer other flavors, there is something for you. The original tobacco flavor is also available.
Gradually Switch From Vaping to Smoking
The best way to change from smoking to vaping is gradually adding vaping to your daily routine. Try switching your cigarette with a vape pen or e-cig and gradually build from there. Don't rush or switch quickly; do it slowly until you switch entirely to vaping only. This way, your body will make a smooth transition without the setbacks of missing your cigarette smoke.
When you try to rush the transition from smoking to vaping, the craving, feeling moody or under the weather will hit you, and chances of reverting are high.
Use the Right Cannabis Strength.
Most people have a hard time getting the right cannabis strength. Suppose you buy and mix with too much cannabis, and you vape for too long. In that case, you will feel nauseous and experience migraines, while vaping liquids with a lower strength will make you crave for more which eventually you may go back to smoking cigarettes to make up for it.
Some tips for understanding cannabis strengths according to your cigarette use;
- Heavy smokers who use more than 20 cigarettes per day may require 18mg of cannabis in liquid to keep up
- Medium smokers who use around 10-15 cigarettes a day may aim for 12mg cannabis liquid
- Light smokers who average around ten cigarettes a day should aim for 3mg cannabis liquid
If you are a heavy smoker and wish to reduce your cannabis strength, start with getting used to the vaping juice, then gradually decrease the amount of mg you take in a day.
Learn to Use Your Vaping Kit the Right Way
Vaping, unlike smoking, is not about a quick hit with quick puffs. You need to take your time to inhale. Vaping should be enjoyed and savored, so you should be taking long and soft inhales. The different flavors and equipment let you enjoy the whole vaping experience.
Learn to control the temperatures, learn how to mix the ratio of PG/VG. PG and VG are odorless liquids that are combined with cannabis to create e-juice. They both belong to the alcohol class but don’t have the same effect as a pint of beer. When heated, they produce vapor you inhale and have a different consistency and taste from each other.
You should increase your VG ratio if you feel you are not getting enough vapor or feel like you are getting a sore throat. On the other hand, if you are aiming for a stronger throat hit, then go for a higher PG ratio.
Therefore, it is essential to understand how to use the correct proportions if you are new to vaping. Using the wrong ratio will result in something you won’t enjoy, therefore spoiling your vaping experience.
If you need help, you can go to your local vape retailer and ask them about percentages and the best ratio for your vaping kit. Alternatively, you can also research online about the right ratios or join forums to check what others with the same setup as you are using.
