Vaping for Beginners 

Before considering whether you should start vaping if you never smoked a cigarette before, you should consider a couple of factors. First vaping can be harsh on your throat. Second, you’ll need a particular type of e-juice with zero nicotine. Third, you’ll need to look for a starter kit that’s right for you, and finally, you’ll need to do some research before purchasing a vape juice or a vape.

Throat Hit

Although you’ll probably vape with zero nicotine (more on this later on in the blog), you should be aware that, especially if you never smoked before, vaping can be harsh on your throat and might make you cough. You might even discover that it is too overwhelming the first time you vape, so remember to take small hits and avoid deep inhales.

Type of E-Juice

E-juice is the liquid used to vape. E-liquid is composed of four ingredients: vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, artificial flavorings, and nicotine. However, there is also e-juice with 0% nicotine, and this is the e juice you’ll probably use if you want to vape but have never smoked cigarettes before. 

It’s also important to mention that the vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol ratio affects how harsh the throat hit is. For example, more vegetable glycerin provides a smoother throat hit, while more propylene glycol in the recipe provides a sharper throat hit. So remember to choose a ratio that will reflect the type of experience you want to achieve.

What To Look For In Your First Starter Kit

If you want to start vaping for the first time, you’ll want to start with a simple kit. We do not recommend that you use a box mod starter kit, but instead that you opt to use a vape pen or a pod system vape. Usually, these require no upkeep and are easy to use. Although you might be able to find a bundle that comes with e-juice, most likely, you’ll need to select the e-liquid you’ll need, and this will be another purchase you have to make. 

Do Research 

Remember to research before buying a vape or a vape juice. Remember that the vape juice you choose should have 0% nicotine and that the device you get should not be a device that uses nicotine salts since nicotine salts, as their name states, have nicotine. Therefore you’ll need a device that uses vape juice. Many devices will take vape juice. Remember to do your research first before settling on the first vape you see.

Reasons to Start Vaping 

Reasons to Start Vaping

Believe it or not, there are some excellent reasons why someone would want to take up vaping as a hobby, even if they have never smoked a cigarette before. Some of those reasons might include to calm anxiety, to join a community, and vape socially because they love the modification and technical aspect of it, or because they enjoy the experience of vaping. 

To Be Part of a Community

Another good reason people might take up vaping as a hobby, even though they have never smoked, might be part of a community of like-minded people. The vaping community embraces and often is extremely helpful to newcomers, which can be attractive to some people. 

There’s also the point of vaping socially. Just like some people smoke socially, non-smokers can join the vaping experience when they are around vapers by vaping on zero-nicotine vape juices. 

Because They Love the Technical Aspect of Vaping

At least for people prone to tinkering with electronics, vaping can be a gratifying hobby, even if they have never smoked a cigarette. With the modification aspect of vaping, like building coils, which require knowledge of electrical currents and special tools, you can expect gearheads to get lost and be attracted to this vaping side. Through this, they start vaping themselves to see if their mods can produce the giant clouds possible. 

Vaping as an experience

Finally, vaping can be a great experience to partake in, even if you don’t intake any nicotine. With a wide range of flavors (we have at least more than +500 flavors in our store), you can experience some great tastes that will please your palette. With flavors like cotton candy, cheesecake, and vanilla custard, vapers who don’t intend on using nicotine can experience these flavors in the form of vapor (without any of the calories).


Enjoy the benefits of vaping

You don’t need to be a former smoker to vape. There are many valid reasons for people who have never vaped to start vaping. Although we do warn you that if you never vaped before and plan to, please do it with zero nicotine, since it is better to experience the sensation of vaping without the constant nicotine cravings.
