Different Pulling Techniques For Vaping The E-Cigarette


The fact that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful than tobacco cigarettes was recently made clear by an article in the medical journal, in which the medical profession called for a change in direction in tobacco prevention. Numerous new studies on e-cigarettes, such as the federal government’s 2017 addiction report, also show that vaping can be a good alternative to tobacco cigarettes and an aid to stopping smoking. The basic prerequisite is, of course, an understanding of the function of the e-cigarette, as well as of the corresponding drawing techniques, because these differ greatly from the way in which you might have drawn on your tobacco cigarette up to now. If you don’t pay attention to either the puffing technique or some of the other most common application errors when vaping, the first experience can also be frustrating and daunting, which is of course not conducive to stopping smoking / switching to e-cigarettes. Therefore we would like to highlight the biggest differences between the puffing techniques of e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes and explain different puffing techniques for vaping.

Differences in puffing techniques when vaping & smoking

Not only technically, the electronic cigarette differs enormously from the tobacco cigarette, simply because of the lack of combustion process, which was further developed into the evaporation process in vaping, which demonstrably eliminates a large part of the pollutants produced during combustion, which are often more harmful than nicotine itself. can be omitted and the health burden can be reduced. The function and structure of the e-cigarette are therefore just as incomparable as the puffing technique that its users use. With the exception of the menthol cigarette, different flavors are also rather unusual for conventional cigarettes. With vaping, a whole new world of numerous flavors is open to the consumer – in the form of liquids. Of course, there were also many critical voices here at the beginning. Diacetyl in particular was often viewed critically. Among other things, a connection was made between the consumption of liquids and the so-called popcorn lung, but this was quickly refuted.

The problem is that the flavors contained in the liquids cannot be fully identified and tasted by the tongue. Although it can distinguish tastes, it cannot differentiate them more precisely. The details of the aromas are perceived by the so-called olfactory epithelium located in the nose. You may know this from the fading cold, when the tongue tastes sweet, sour, etc. again, but the full enjoyment of your favorite food remains unclear because the nose is still tight and the olfactory epithelium does not function properly with it. These are located in the upper nasal passage. It is therefore essential when vaping that the vapor is also absorbed through the nose, for example if you breathe it out through the nose. When smoking, this is optional, if at all, and more a question of appearance. The smoke from tobacco cigarettes usually finds its way both inwards and outwards, through the mouth. This is the first difference between vaping and smoking puff techniques.

But one of the most noticeable differences is the way the nicotine is consumed. This is where beginners often get frustrated, since the so-called throat hit and the nicotine flash seem to be significantly weaker than with tobacco cigarettes. But this is exactly where the draw technology in connection with the e-cigarette model used comes into play.

With tobacco cigarettes, the nicotine is in the pure form, which is why it can immediately produce its effect, the flash, which satisfies the craving almost immediately. With electronic cigarettes, the nicotine was dissolved in the liquids. When the nicotine-containing liquid hits the heating coils in the evaporator head, vapor is produced. This must first be converted by the body as soon as it hits the vaper’s lungs. The puff of the steamer must therefore be much slower and it takes a little longer than with a normal cigarette for the flash to occur.

The hasty pull

But the slower-onset flash is a key component of e-cigarette harm reduction. While the smoker is used to gratifying his addiction immediately, with the vaper the aroma gradually comes to the fore. The Flash, which occurs as quickly as possible, moves into the background. This is why smokers puff on their cigarettes at very short intervals and, above all, very quickly. If you transfer this 1:1 to the optimal drawing technique for an e-cigarette, your first experience may end in a fit of coughing. Because here you pull slowly and continuously. The consequences of incorrectly applied drawing technique for electronic cigarettes are even more diverse:

  • dry mouth
  • headache
  • slight nausea

The dry mouth that some users experience is a consequence of the ingredients in some liquids, which can dry out the mucous membranes. Of course, this takes some getting used to for those switching to the e-cigarette, but the effect increases significantly the more violently and hastily you draw on the e-cigarette. So to avoid these effects, just drag slowly and evenly. It also helps if you drink a lot to moisturize the mucous membranes. The symptom of “dry mouth” can be reduced to almost zero.

The other symptoms that can occur in exceptional cases, i.e. headaches and slight nausea, are due to a nicotine overdose. Because with the e-cigarette, the flash is a long time coming, since the nicotine must first be extracted from the vapor by the lungs. For example, as a beginner, you may be prone to draw for a very long time, leading to the associated overdose and its symptoms. Because the nicotine content in liquids is not lower than in tobacco cigarettes – you just feel it more slowly. This is best cured with some rest and a good sip of water. But all these symptoms have something for them: they show you very clearly that you still have to work on your pulling technique.

Different pulling techniques

Many people remember the coughing fit after the first puff on the e-cigarette. This is not uncommon, even if you have been a smoker before. Because the pulling techniques differ greatly. If you then take a short, hard puff on the e-cigarette, like you would on a tobacco cigarette, it will backfire. As mentioned earlier, when it comes to vaping, it’s all about smooth and long draws. But there are other differences here too. Primarily the one between lung vaping and cheek vaping. These steam techniques have primarily prevailed. Also worth mentioning is the sub ohm vape, which is primarily suitable for generating as much and dense vape as possible. Cheek vapers are, so to speak, the “pleasure vapers” who pay particular attention to the different aromas, while the lung vapers are interested in large clouds of vapor.

The cheek vape – MTL / M2L

The name comes from the fact that the vapor from vaping is first collected in the mouth and only then drawn into the lungs and inhaled. So you can dose both the taste and the amount of vapor very well. In terms of the mere process, this vapor technique comes closest to the drawing technique of conventional cigarettes. However, much slower. This gives the vapor enough time to spread into the nasal cavity, where the olfactory epithelium can differentiate the aromas better than the tongue. Fast, short trains should definitely be avoided. In addition, when vaping with the cheek, a high draw resistance is required, which can be achieved by adjusting the air supply / air flow control. So an e-cigarette that has this function is ideal for cheek steaming.

Advantages of cheek vaping:

  • more intense aroma
  • is similar to puffing on a tobacco cigarette
  • you move in the typical resistance range, between 0.6 and 2.0 ohms

In steamer language, this pulling technique is also called MTL / M2L, which stands for “Mouth to Lung”.

The Lung Vaping – DTL / D2L

It goes without saying that the vapor is drawn into the lungs directly and without an aromatic stop in the mouth and nose. This increases the nicotine flash and throat hit that smokers are used to from normal tobacco cigarettes. For this we recommend e-cigarettes specially designed for lung vaping, as these produce more vapor.

The vapor is not only inhaled with a different drawing technique, but also a larger amount of vapor is inhaled. However, this reduces the taste experience, since the vapor does not spread into the nasal cavity in advance, as with cheek steaming. That’s why it’s all the more important to let the vapor flow out through your nose. This is at least partially compensated by the larger amount of steam, which also transports more aroma. In contrast to cheek vaping, a low draw resistance is required here so that the vapor can be inhaled particularly easily into the lungs. Again, regulation by the air flow control is necessary. Lung vaping is the basic vaping technique for sub ohm vaping. Here the resistance is less than or equal to 1.0 Ohm.

Benefits of Lung Vaping:

  • better nicotine flash / throat hit
  • produces more and denser vapor
  • the feeling in the lungs is most similar to that of a tobacco cigarette

In steamer language, this drawing technique is also called DTL / D2L, which stands for “Direct to Lung”.

The most important tips for steamer train technology

  • Release the fire button early enough: About two seconds before you end your turn, release the fire button. Otherwise, excess vapor will remain in the evaporator head, which will liquefy again over time. Because under certain circumstances this can lead to the problem that liquid leaks out of the tank and the e-cigarette and the evaporator clogs.
  • Press the fire button in time: You should not only release the fire button in time, but also press it in time. About two seconds before you bring the mouthpiece to your mouth, you can already press the fire button. This gives the coils in the evaporator more time to preheat and much more and denser vapor is produced.
  • Swipe speed: Slowly and evenly draw on the e-cigarette and hold the vapor briefly in your mouth before inhaling it into your lungs. The M2L technique (Mouth to Lung), i.e. cheek vaping, is much more suitable for those switching from tobacco cigarettes than lung vaping (D2L). Among other things, the accumulation of steam in the mouth means that even before exhaling, steam enters the nasal cavity, which makes the aroma much more intense.
  • Blow out through your nose and mouth: We recommend exhaling the vapor through your nose and mouth. A small amount through the nose is enough to perceive the aroma even more intensively.
