Vaping 101: How to Vape - A Beginner’s Guide for Adult Smokers

How to vape?

Adult smokers or nicotine users, now have many different products to choose from. The best choice for all smokers is to quit tobacco and nicotine use altogether. But for those who don’t want to quit, there are smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes available. One of the most well-known options is vaping - but with it also comes many questions about an experience that could seem foreign to adult smokers who have never tried vaping. If you are considering switching from smoking cigarettes to vaping, here is a basic guide on how to vape.

What is vaping?

Vaping refers to the act of using a vape device (sometimes also referred to as an “e-cigarette”). Vape devices are battery-powered, electronic devices. The heat e-liquids, many of which contain nicotine, in order to generate an aerosol (also sometimes called “vapour”) that is inhaled by the user. The important thing to note, is that this vapour is not the same as cigarette smoke. Cigarettes produce smoke because they burn tobacco, with vapes, a vapour is produced when the e-liquid evaporates due to being heated.

What is a vape device?

There are many different types of vape devices, they can differ in size, power, customization options. Vapes can be reusable or disposable, but they often work based on similar principles and with similar components. Vapes work primarily through heating and vaporizing e-liquids. They achieve this by drawing the liquid from a tank or a pod system and putting it in contact with a battery-powered heating element. When the liquid is evaporated, the vapour is drawn from the device through a mouthpiece.

Different types of vape devices include:

  • Cigalikes (or ‘cig-a-likes’), are designed to look like a cigarette, often including a light at the tip to replicate the glowing lit end of a cigarette.
  • Pod vapes, which work with a closed vape pod or refillable vape pods containing the e-liquid. VEEV is an example of a pod vape, as it utilizes VEEV flavour pods that require no refilling.
  • Vape pens, which are small and thin, and have a refillable tank and replaceable coils.
  • Box mods, which are large devices with multiple changeable elements that allow for advanced customization.

Legal age to use vaping products?

The legal age to vape varies dependent on the province of residency. Vaping products should never be sold to or used by minors. It is your responsibility to know and follow local laws on this matter.
