When I first started vaping, I was fascinated by the videos I would see online of other vapers blowing superhuman clouds of vapor like it was nothing!
“How do they do that?” Something I would ask myself as I watched in amazement.
The more I watched “cloud chasing” videos, the more I wanted to do it myself.
This is for all the newbie vapers who want tips on how to generate more vapor production.
A word of caution though, please, and I say this with all sincerity, DO NOT BLOW BIG CLOUDS OUT IN PUBLIC! Our community has a bad reputation already, mostly because of misinformation, but don’t add more heat by being a douchebag. Most people (non-vapers and non-smokers) HATE seeing big clouds of vapor being blown especially in their direction.
Be considerate of others. Vaping is to get off cigarettes, not to show off in public. It is also not a way to give you self-gratification and a feeling of superiority over others and other vapers. Just because you can blow big clouds doesn’t make you a “better” vaper. We are all equal in this community. We are all overcoming years of addiction to cigarettes.
If you vape just to look cool, to look “in,” or to get attention, do us and yourself a favor, throw your vape away or give it to someone who really needs it.
That being said, here are 5 tips on how blow bigger clouds of vapor:
TIP 1: MASTER THE LUNG HIT
As smokers, we have become used to the mouth-to-lung hit, where we inhale into our mouth, then to our lungs, and exhale.
The problem with that in regards to blowing bigger clouds is most of the vapor dissipates in your mouth, leaving fewer vapor once you exhale.
Cloud chasers inhale directly to their lungs, getting a much bigger vacuum to get more vapor.
If you aren’t used to this type of inhale, you will cough, but eventually will get over it. If you do keep coughing, don’t force yourself. It just means that this isn’t for you, stick to mouth-to-lung.
TIP 2: GET A SUB-OHM TANK
Back when I started vaping, I had to watch tutorials on how to wrap my coils on my atomizer, how to drill out holes, etc.
Lucky for you guys, sub-ohm vaping is easily available. Not only that, most tanks out now are catered to sub-ohm vapers. Pretty much anything with “sub-ohm” attached to it will give you bigger clouds. Any atomizer that reads 0.5 ohms and below will give you more cloud production.
TIP 3: OPEN YOUR AIR HOLES
The rule here is, the bigger your air holes, the more vapor you will suck in. Very simple.
If you like your air holes tight, you won’t be getting as much vapor as you could. Open those babies up!
Only downside is it sort of affects the flavor. But hey, you’ll be getting bigger clouds in exchange.
TIP 4: LEARN COIL BUILDING
If you want to get more technical about getting more vapor production, there are tons of videos on the internet that will show you step-by-step on how to make vapor-chucking builds.
More importantly though, if you do choose to learn how to build your own coils, make sure you get a very thorough understanding of the precautions that come with coil building. Too many people you see on the news having their mods blow up in their pocket or hands, don’t be one of them!
TIP 5: GET A BOX MOD
If you still are using a vape pen and want to blow bigger clouds, you’re doing it wrong. You’ll need something big enough to power the low resistance atomizer you have.
Buy a mod, a dual 18650 mod or any box mod will be good enough.
So there you are, 5 tips on how to blow bigger clouds. You are now a self-taught cloud chaser.
With bigger clouds come bigger responsibility. Be considerate to others and make sure you know the safety measures that come with cloud chasing.
