Vaping has become a popular alternative to traditional smoking. It attracts countless individuals globally who aim to quit smoking. As a beginner in the world of vaping, understand the correct way to inhale a vape for an enjoyable experience.

There are two ways to inhale a Vape;

  1. Mouth-to-Lung (MTL)
  2. Direct-to-Lung (DTL)

Whichever style you choose, the ultimate goal is to inhale a vapor into your lung.

MTL Vaping Style:

MTL vaping is like smoking a traditional cigarette, where you draw the vapor into your mouth first. It is a popular vaping style for beginners. While vaping through MTL style, take the draw slowly into your mouth and hold it for a few seconds. Inhale the vapour into your lungs by opening your mouth. Then, exhale it from lungs.

Mouth to Lung (MTL) vaping is best suited for smaller vapes with high resistance coils. These types of vapes provide a tighter draw, similar to smoking a traditional cigarette. MTL vaping often pairs well with higher nicotine strengths. As for the e-liquid ratio, a 50/50 PG to VG ratio is commonly used in MTL vaping setups.

DTL Vaping Style:

DTL vaping involves directly inhaling the vapour into your lungs without holding it in your mouth. Direct to Lung (DTL) vaping is more popular among hobbyists and advanced vapers who enjoy performing vape tricks or using sub-ohm vape kits. While vaping through DTL style, slow and steady take a draw of vapor directly into your lungs for a few seconds, and then exhale. This method allows for larger cloud production and a more intense vaping experience.

Direct to Lung (DTL) vaping is best suited for larger vapes with low resistance coils. These types of vapes provide a more open airflow and larger cloud production. In terms of e-liquid, DTL vaping often pairs well with a lower nicotine strength. A 70/30 PG to VG ratio is commonly used in DTL setups.

Guide for MTL Vaping

Here are the four steps to get started with MTL vaping;

  1. Take a draw of the vapour into your mouth: Inhale the vapour and retain it in a mouth for a few seconds. Beginners should take a gradual, 1-3 second vapour draw into their mouth to begin vaping. This enables them to adjust to the taste and experience.

    Experienced vapers can hold the vapor in their mouth for approximately 3-5 seconds.

  2. Keep your mouth closed and hold the vapour for a second or two.

    Once you have taken a puff of vapour into your mouth, close your mouth and hold it there for a moment. This lets you savor the initial taste of the e-liquid flavor and prepare to inhale the vapor into your lungs.

    If you'd rather not inhale the vapour into your lungs, you can keep it in your mouth and enjoy the flavour. When you are ready to exhale, just open your mouth and blow out the vapor without it entering your lungs.

  3. Inhale the vapor into your lungs without swallowing it by opening your mouth and taking a deep breath. After holding the vapor, open your mouth and inhale it into your lungs by taking a deep breath. Hold the vape hit in lungs for 1 to 5 seconds, holding it for a longer time will produce fewer clouds when exhaling.

    Swallowing the vapour can increase the chances of coughing. Do not swallow it rather Inhale the vapor into your lungs for a pleasant vaping experience.

  4. Exhale the vapour once it reaches your lungs. While releasing the vapor, exhale it from your lungs. You have options to exhale through your mouth or nose. But exhaling through a nose can cause dryness and nosebleeds.

Guide for DTL Vaping

Here are the two steps to get started with DTL vaping;

  1. Quickly draw the vapor directly into your lungs. Draw the vapor quickly and directly into your lungs. Aim for a smooth and steady motion instead of sharp, quick drags. Let the vapor fill your lungs for a duration of 3-5 seconds or more if you prefer.
  2. Exhale the vapour immediately. Once the vapor reaches your lungs, you can exhale those clouds of vapor almost immediately.
