You’re not imagining it — vaping culture has officially hit the mainstream.
From a host of celebrities like Sienna Miller and Leonardo DiCaprio to your next-door-neighbor, it seems like everyone is hopping on the vaping bandwagon these days.
Whether you’re a seasoned smoker or are just starting out, we’re willing to bet that watching others pull off cool vaping tricks was part of what piqued your interest in vaping.
As you watch others create huge clouds and impress everyone in the vape shop with what they’re able to do, you’re likely wondering how you can pull off these moves for yourself.
Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered.
Read on to learn how you can master some of the coolest vaping tricks around — even if you’re still relatively new to the vaping scene.
1. The French Inhale
When it comes to the best vaping tricks, nothing beats the original: The French Inhale.
While in the past, you might have tried to pull off a French Inhale with a cigarette, we know that part of the reason you were drawn to vaping was likely to quit smoking tobacco.
The good news?
You can still pull off an epic French Inhale with an e-cig and vape juice, without any of the harsh side effects of tobacco.
So, how can you do it?
First of all, take a medium-sized pull off of your vape. Resist the temptation to inhale (this may take a couple of times to get right, don’t worry.)
Instead of breathing in the vapor, keep it in your mouth for a few moments. Then, drop your mouth about 1/3 of the way open, and push the bottom of your jaw forward slightly.
Just like you didn’t inhale, also make sure that you don’t exhale. Instead, simply let the cloud fall out of your mouth. As it begins to fall, slowly and gently breathe in through your nose.
Now, you’ve mastered one of the best vaping tricks out there today!
2. The Dragon Breath
Another one of the most awesome vaping tricks that’s perfect for beginners?
The Dragon Breath, a fancy way of saying that you’ll be able to exhale vapor through your nose, like a dragon.
As you did with the French Inhale, start by taking a longer pull from your vape, but do not inhale. Make sure that you continue to pull until your mouth is completely filled with vape.
Then, breathe out through your nose — and don’t be afraid to use a little bit more force than you usually would to push it out. Also, crack only the corners of your mouth open a bit, to allow the vapor to filter out.
As with the French Inhale, this will likely take a couple of tries to really master.
The good news?
It’s the perfect excuse to try out lots of different flavors and to find out which ones you like the best.
3. Cheerio Rings
Looking for vaping tricks that will have you feeling as elegant and relaxed as the caterpillar in Alice In Wonderland?
If so, then you’ve likely always wanted to learn how to create rings with your vapor.
Luckily, this is much easier than you’re likely anticipating.
Unlike the other tricks on this list so far, after you take your initial pull from your vape, you’ll actually breathe the vapor in through a deep inhale. Make sure, however, that you concentrate on flattening your tongue and positioning it towards the back of your throat.
To pull off this entry on our list of vaping tricks, we suggest practicing without using your vape at all first.
Once you’ve mastered flattening out your tongue, then gently form your lips into an “O.” This, of course, is what will help you to create the rings. For best results, think about puckering your lips, like you’re about to kiss someone or pose for a duckface selfie with your lips open.
After that, push out your vapor through your throat, kind of like you’re sighing ever so slightly.
4. The Vape Bubble
Number four on our list of some of the coolest vaping tricks?
The vape bubble, which requires that you raid your kitchen to make sure that you have everything you need.
Grab a little bit of water with dish soap (only a few drops, so that you aren’t overwhelmed by the flavor.) Then, grab an empty toilet paper roll.
Start by gently placing one end of the toilet paper roll into the tiny dish of water and soap. Remember, you’re not trying to soak the end — so a quick dip in and out will likely be the most effective method.
Remember how you used to blow bubbles when you were a kid?
That’s the strategy you want to take when it comes to this trick.
Take a medium-sized pull from your vape, and then gently exhale into the roll of toilet paper. Once you’ve created the size of bubble that you’re aiming for? You can free the vape by gently poking it and watching it fly away.
This is definitely one of the easiest options on our list of vaping tricks. So, if you’re a beginner who is still looking for a way to impress their friends, this is an awesome option!
5. A Ghost Inhale
Looking for another option that’s one of the easier vaping tricks on this list — but no less impressive than the more difficult ones?
If so, it’s time to try the ghost inhale.
To make this trick work for you, grab your vape pen (or whatever mod you’re vaping out of) and take in a longer inhale. Don’t immediately breathe in the vapor. Instead, let it hang out in your mouth for a few seconds, as you’ll do with the majority of vaping tricks on this list.
Your goal with this trick is to create a ball shape that’s similar to the above bubble, but doesn’t require you to use any outside tools and is smaller in size.
So, open your mouth, mold it into an “O” shape, and then immediately close it to allow the ball to form. Then, keep the vapor in your mouth for another second, and slowly release the eerie orb!
6. The Swimming Jellyfish
You might not want to run into a jellyfish when you’re swimming in the ocean, but when you’re vaping, it’s exactly the kind of creature you want to be able to create.
Think of it as a more adult — and much more satisfying — version of a balloon animal.
So, how can you bring your vape jellyfish to life?
First of all, we recommend that you really work to master creating the “O” smoke rings that we mentioned above. Once you feel like you’ve got a good handle on that, you’re ready for the jellyfish.
Start by creating the “O” shape with your vapor, then blow that ring of smoke directly into your cupped palms, one on either side of your mouth.
After you’ve trapped the first “O” in your palms?
Go ahead and blow a second “O” shape out, aiming it through the first “O” you created. Then, breathe out with a little bit of force to create the “tentacles” of the jellyfish.
Yes, this is one of the more difficult entries on our list of vaping tricks.
However, it’s also one of the most impressive options!
7. Create A Waterfall
Looking for more vaping tricks that require the use of a prop?
If you’ve got a little extra time on your hands, or if you want to challenge your friends to see who can pull off the coolest trick, then you should give the waterfall a try.
You’ll need a plastic bottle (an old water bottle works best) that’s above 1/3 of the way full of frozen water.
Then, take a longer drag than usual from your vape. Put your mouth on the lips of the bottle, completely covering it, and slowly exhale into the bottle. Then, quickly remove the bottle from your lips and turn it upside-down, as though you were pouring a glass of water for a friend from the bottle.
You’ll notice that you’re able to create a stunning miniature waterfall, right in your kitchen. No need to book that trip to Niagara Falls now!
8. Make An Atomic Bomb
We know that you and your friends are likely a peace-loving crew. So, while you all likely don’t support the use of an atomic bomb in real life, making one out of vapor is pretty cool.
It’s one of our favorite vaping tricks, and if you love performing in front of a crowd, it’s definitely one you’ll want to learn.
This is another trick that requires the use of a little outside material.
Grab a bag that you use to line your trash can (a clean one, we hope it goes without saying.)
Then, collect between two and three of your friends — you’re going to need to create a serious amount of vapor if you want to pull this trick off! So, what you can create on your own just won’t be enough to do it right.
You and your friends should work together to fill up the trash bag with as much vapor as is possible. Once you’ve got an amount you’re all happy with, go ahead and close the bag with your hands. Think of it as holding the mouth of a balloon shut — don’t tie it closed.
Then, slowly open the bag, holding it between two of you. Have your third friend punch up the bag from the bottom.
You’ll create a giant mushroom cloud that’s harmless — not to mention a great photo opportunity.
9. The Bull Ring
Last on our list of some of the best vaping tricks out there?
The bull ring, which some people also refer to as a “nose ring trick.” Essentially, the goal of this trick is to have you looking like you’re wearing a gold hoop made of vapor through your nose.
Don’t be intimidated by this trick.
Although it certainly looks impressive, it’s also one of the easiest tricks on this list.
Once you’ve mastered blowing “O’s?” It’ll be even easier.
Start by blowing a few “O” shapes in a row — you’ll want to make sure that you’ve taken a longer drag on your vape pen to make this happen. When you’re prepping for this trick, make sure that you push the “O’s” out a little bit further in front of you than you normally would.
Once you’ve blown the “O,” chase after it with your nose. Harshly inhale through your nose to pull the “O” back in through your nostrils. Then, you’ll “pierce” your nose with the smoke!
