There’s something pretty cool about having a party trick. Some people can bend their legs behind their heads, others can tie a knot in a cherry stalk with their tongue. And some can blow smoke elegant rings.
As a vaper, wouldn’t it be cool if you could blow vape rings from your e-cigarette? 98% of vapers can't blow smoke rings, but that doesn't mean it's not possible. There’s just a bit of a technique to it, but with practice you’ll get the hang of vape rings and you’ll be able to blow them on demand.
Here’s our method for blowing the best ‘entry level’ vape rings (not smoke rings – there is no smoke!).
1. Choose your favourite vape juice and load up your e-cigarette. High VG e-liquid is better for more cloud
2. Take a long drag from your e-cigarette – you want as much vapour as possible.
3. Hold the vapour in your throat (not in your lungs). This is the key to blowing smoke rings.
4. Move your tongue to the back of your throat and flatten it on the bottom of your mouth.
5. Form your lips into an “O” shape. Stick out your lips as though you were going to say “boo!”
6. Use your tongue and throat to push the vapour from the back of your throat to the front. This is the tricky part. It’s a bit like a little cough or sigh.
That’s all there is to it! With a bit of practice you’ll be blowing elegant vape-rings with your e-cigarette and impressing all your friends.
Top tips for blowing vape rings with your e-cigarette:
The more vapour you manage to hold in your throat, the thicker your rings will be
A high VG vape juice will make for thicker clouds and therefore better rings
Some people find it easier to make a “P” sound when they’re trying to blow the ring. Make the sound very slowly.
If you want to make your vape-rings move faster, curl your lips back when you blow the ring. You have to time this perfectly as curling your lips too soon will make your rings smaller. This is advance level stuff, so make sure you practice a ton before you show off your new skills.
The cheat’s method of blowing vape-rings with an e-cigarette
If you’re struggling with the above method, you can try this sneaky trick. Take a deep drag, hold the vapour in your mouth, shape your lips into an “O”, and then tap your cheek. They’ll be small rings, but this is a great way to learn the right way to shape your lips before you perfect the proper technique above.
There are literally hundreds of techniques and even more types of vape rings out there, but by starting with the basics; blowing vape rings with an e-cigarette is easier than you think. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to blow awesome ‘O’s in no time.
