There are two main methods for vaping: mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung. We’ve already discussed the differences in a previous article. Today, we’re going to take a look at mouth-to-lung vaping and why many vapers still love it.
Mouth-to-lung vaping was the primary method for vaping, before the proliferation of sub-ohm tours. During mouth-to-lung vaping, you inhale the vapor into your mouth, enjoying the flavour of your chosen e-juice on your tongue, before drawing the vapor into your lungs.
With mouth-to-lung vaping, you get that mean throat hit that you’ll be familiar with from smoking cigarettes. Back in the day before sub-ohm atomisers, this was the way most vapers got their hit – you couldn’t get a decent lung hit unless you built your own coils, and big clouds? Forget it.
Now, of course, everyone loves to chase the big clouds, which means mouth-to-lung vaping isn’t as popular as it once was. In fact, many people get a bit elitist and try to say mouth-to-lung vaping “Isn’t vaping at all.” Which is a) dumb and b) untrue.
There are many reasons you might choose to be a mouth-to-lung vaper:
- If you’re an ex-smoker or trying to quit smoking, mouth-to-lung most closely replicates the physical sensation of smoking. Mouth-to-lung vaping (especially with a high nicotine e-juice) gives you the nicotine hit, the throat hit, and the flavours on your tongue.
- It’s more affordable. E-pens for mouth-to-lung vaping are cheaper than sub-ohm tanks, and on average, mouth-to-lung vapers use less e-juice, so you save money on gear.
- You get to taste the flavours. There are a lot of amazing vape flavours on the market. Many vapers get started because they’re entranced by the lovely flavours.
- With mouth-to-lung, you get a deeper taste and appreciation for each unique flavour, especially with high-quality e-juices like our own NV Juice flavours.
- Some vapers say that vaping is more soothing when they use mouth-to-lung vaping.
I highly recommend mouth-to-lung vaping as a great way to learn for beginners, especially if you’re using vaping as a tool to help quit smoking. You might not get those huge clouds, but you’ll be more likely to stick to vaping and enjoy the taste and flavours. Later, you can switch to a sub-ohm tank and direct-to-lung vaping, or mix and match as you prefer.
