How to Puff on a Vape

Want to learn how to vape a Puff bar correctly? We’ll cover all the steps you need to know to get the most satisfying vaping experience in our guide on how to hit a puff bar.

If you’re vaping you should be getting all the benefits possible. Unlike traditional cigarette smoking, with vaping it’s a little bit different and  requires a somewhat different technique.  Here are steps needed to use your e-cigarette or Puff bar properly.

First of all, here’s what not to do: don’t attempt to use your e-cigarette like a traditional cigarette. Because electronic cigarettes are alternatives to traditional cigarettes, it may seem completely normal and natural to use the same method of puffing. However, vaping requires  a different technique. Do not take quick short drags, as this will create an unsatisfying experience that could lead to liquid in your mouth – yuck!

Chain vaping is another no-no. 3 to 7 puffs should be the limit because your device can overheat, so these cooling sessions are necessary.

Okay, so now that you know what not to do, here are the steps you should take for the best experience:


1. The draw: when inhaling, take it slow and steady. The draw will be smooth until you have a mouthful of vapor, similar to how you smoke a cigar. Also with vaping, you don’t need to draw the vapor down into your lungs when you inhale, like you would with a tobacco cigarette, for you to get the full effect.


2. Hold and exhale: after taking the draw, hold it in your mouth for 3 to 5 seconds before inhaling it further or exhaling it. The nicotine is absorbed through the mucous membranes in your mouth, unlike traditional tobacco cigarettes where it would only be absorbed through the lungs. So this is a big factor to keep in mind to ensure you’re getting the right amount of nicotine.


3. Patience is a virtue: you need to wait about 30 seconds before you feel the effects of the nicotine. While traditional cigarettes require a wait time of about eight seconds, the absorption is a little different with vapor cigs, but you’ll get used to it.

One more thing to keep in mind when vaping, is that warming up your atomizer by priming is the best way to heat up the coils. This will create the ideal set up for great, rich vapor hits.

So that’s it — just 3 simple steps on how to use a Puff bar. Definitely different from using regular cigarettes but with just a little bit of tweaking your experience can be beyond more satisfying! Enjoy!
