Regarding disposable vaping, you can be left puzzled and stressed about what to do with the gadget to produce pleasant vapor. This article will give you well-researched details on how to use disposable vaping by highlighting the following issues; what exactly is vaping, a disposable vape, choosing a disposable vape, how to use a disposable vape, and how to store a disposable vape.
The disposable vape is the leading vaporizer in the cannabis market. It is easy, convenient to use, and extremely smokers friendly, making it the ideal pick for cannabis sellers. The manufacturer uses a filling machine to put the cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, and CBN into a disposable pen or pod that is already charged; then distribute to retailers. Most people are not comfortable with the oily, grassy flavor associated with cannabis. Therefore the vape aid in bypassing the unpleasant taste that most newcomers might not be comfortable with.
What Exactly Is Vaping?
Mc Neill et al. (2019) said that vaping uses charged electronic pen or pad to inhale vapor extracted from cannabis or tobacco. It simulates smoking, but it is less dangerous and easy to take. Fortunately for cannabis users, vaping is the fastest way to harness the health benefits of most cannabinoids like CBD since the vapor is directly absorbed into the bloodstream through the lung tissues. Hence effects kick in less than 3 minutes. Sometimes, they leave the system quickly because it is easy for the body to break down compounds in vapor form rather than ingested.
What are Disposable Vapes?
Talih et al. (2021) explained that disposable vapes are sophisticated components in the form of electronic devices similar to electric cigarettes that release an inhalable vapor. They are available in different shapes and sizes containing a specific dosage of the cannabinoids or nicotine, thus more convenient to newbies in the vaping regime. They use high voltage battery power that heats a coil in the pen or pod, which vaporizes the e-liquid of nicotine or cannabis compounds. When the e-liquid ends, the vape device is disposed of.
Choosing a Disposable Vape
Before you know how to use vapes, you must understand things to consider before choosing them. However, the content inside a vape depends on your needs and experience. The following are three things to consider when using disposable vapes;
Size and Battery Power
Cannabis-derived vapes are in convenient shape and size and easy to carry and handle. The size should be able to fit in your hand, similar to a cigarette, and a battery power ranging from 280 to 900 mah. Though, sometimes the manufacturer's reputations vary some manufacture disposable vape above the standard size and battery power.
The next factor to consider is the formula and potency of the vape oil. They are a variety of vape oil with different benefits, so for use, it depends on your recreational or medicinal purpose. However, for cannabis vapes, it is essential to know the same cannabinoids infused in the vape. For example, CBD and THC have different effects on the body, whereby CBD is mostly for medicinal use like pain relief. At the same time, THC is popular for recreational use, causing highness. CBD vapes, if not tasted, may contain THC traces above the recommended dose (0.3%). Therefore, you should be cautious when purchasing such disposable vapes for medicinal purposes. It should have e-liquid ranging from 10 to 40 milligrams, depending on the size.
The coil type is another factor to consider since they affect the flavor of the vaporized e-liquid. The common types of coil are wicked, ceramic, and quartz. The best option for many people is ceramic coils because they release purer and no burnt flavor of the e-liquid.
How To Use a Disposable Vape
Online platforms like YouTube and Facebook make vaping difficult, especially for newcomers, since people are debating over the best packing, styles, pods, and types, thus making it overwhelming. Luckily, those are not the technique you need to know. According to Ali et al. (2022), disposable vape exists in two formats with the same purpose but can be used differently. They include vape pen and vape pods.
Steps of Using a Vape Pen
Remove the device from the package.
Some contain a button, so press to turn on the indication. You can skip the step if there is no button.
Place the vape pen's mouthpiece in your mouth and inhale it slowly and deeply. The indicator will light up if there is no switch-on button.
Exhale the vapor through the nose after taking a deep breath.
Precaution- taking a vape pen for the first time, it is important to draw small puffs to avoid being overwhelmed and thus coughing. Additionally, a slight draw means less dosage, allowing you to determine your tolerance and achieve the desired effects.
Steps of Using a Disposable Vape Pod
Vape pods are non-rechargeable devices with a cartridge filled with vape juice. They are similar to vape pens but can be used in the following way:
After unpacking the pod, warm up the vape by doing a pre –puff-this is to heat the coil. It is not the time to start vaping but to get the coil ready.
Inhale the vape steadily and hold it in the mouth for 10 seconds.
Then exhale the vapor through the mouth- pod contains high concentrated nicotine or cannabinoids; therefore, it is unsafe to exhale through the nose to avoid overwhelming yourself.
How To Store Disposable Vapes
They are not intended to be stored for the long term, but you need to ensure they last longer than the last puff. Gentry et al. (2020) highlighted the following ways to store vapes;
Store it in an upright position- when you leave the vape pen lying or in an upside-down posture, promote leakage and blockage of cartridge parts, and either the vape favor will spill out, or the device won't work.
Keep it in a dry clean area to avoid the attraction of moisture, dust, and dirt inside the gadget.
Prevent heat or light on the disposable by keeping it a room temperature. Some vape flavors are sensitive to heat; thus, preventing bad taste and degraded vape material is crucial.
Disposable vapes are readily available in vape stores or dispensaries in two types; vape pen and vape pod. They deliver similar benefits and advantages as they are easy to handle and use. First is important to choose a high-quality device by considering the size, which should be smaller than a standard pen, ceramic coil type, battery power over 300mAh, and vape materials inside that depend on the purpose of use. It involves just inhaling the vapor directly in your mouth down the lungs for ease harvest of vape e-liquid benefits. Then, store it upright in a dry, clean and cool place.
