What is the Nic Salts craze all about?

Nicotine salts are amongst the hottest vaping trends out there. Pax Labs, also known for pioneering the vape pod system and developing the JUULpod, holds the patent for nic salts. These were officially released into the market in 2015, and now they’re readily available and steadily rising in popularity.

Vaping with nic salts results in a much stronger nicotine hit without being harsh on the throat. In fact, many vapers who have also been smokers find these so much more satisfying than normal e-liquids and, as a result, it has huge potential to ease the transition from smoking to vaping.

The Art and Science of Vape Tricks

Vape Tricks

Vaping, in its most basic form, seems straightforward: you press a button and inhale from your vape device, before blowing out a cloud of vapour. The main point is the taste and feel of it, the drag of the vapour against your throat. But as the vaping community has grown, so too has the emergence of a form of vaping that’s visually appealing and even bordering on performance art. Through vape tricks, vapers can transform vapour into fascinating shapes, from classic O-rings to jellyfish like shapes and even the outline of a Batman archvillain.

How To Successfully Switch From Smoking to Vaping

Stop written with cigarettes

If you’re looking to quit smoking, vaping is one of the most effective and safest ways.

In fact, e-cigarettes are twice as effective as nicotine patches or gum at getting smokers to stop. Aside from the health benefits, vaping is also cheaper than smoking and gives you more options to customize.

What Is Cloud Chasing?

Cloud-chasing is just shorthand vaper speak for producing massive clouds of vapour when you vape. This might sound a lot like sub-ohm vaping, which is a more common technique that also results in bigger vapour production, but cloud-chasing takes it to the extremes.

It’s also called stunt vaping because of the degree of skill and technical knowledge required as well as the performance aspect (vapers compete to blow the most interesting clouds, as well as the largest, such as rings, streams or shapes like ‘the jellyfish’).
