What is the Difference Between Mouth to Lung and Straight to Lung?

Tuesday, 3 May 2016  |  Admin

As the vaping industry has moved on, so too have the techniques used. You might only know one way of vaping (otherwise known as mouth to lung) but, if it's bigger clouds you're after, then there's another way, young apprentice. You take the blue pill, and your story ends. You might even be perfectly happy vaping as you have been, with average amounts of vapour. You take the red pill, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. 

Mouth to Lung vs Straight to Lung

Ah, so you took the red pill? Good choice, for it turns out everything you thought you knew about vaping was... a lie! Well, not exactly, but it turns out there's another method of vaping known as 'straight to lung', or just 'lung hits'.

If you're coming to vaping straight from smoking, you probably only know one way to inhale smoke, by inhaling it into the mouth first and then into the lungs. This method (mouth to lung) translated to vaping and most vapers now use it. Techniques have now advanced, as vapers discovered a looser airflow resulted in more vapour. This means many people now inhale the vapour straight into their lungs, without holding it in their mouth first (straight to lung vaping).   

E-Liquid

The choice of e-juice is also important when it comes to your choice of vaping method. As you probably know, high VG e-liquids will produce more vapour than high PG ones, so it makes it a great choice for straight to lung vaping. However, by doing this you sacrifice a lot of the flavour that PG brings to the equation. Some vapers compromise with a 50/50 balance of VG and PG to give the best of both worlds, while hardcore vapers might decide to use a 100% VG e-juice.

Easy on the Nicotine

The amount of nicotine is also important. If you're just starting out with lung hits, it's a good idea to try it out with a zero nicotine e-liquid first. Using one with as little as 8mg of nicotine can cause violent coughing and a very sore throat. This is because you can't control the amount of vapour coming into your lungs in the same way as mouth hits, so higher nicotine levels lead to very harsh throat hits. The nicotine is also more potent when taken straight into the lungs, making it comparable to a higher concentration taken via mouth hit.

Different Set-Ups

You're also going to need different equipment depending on which method you want to use. Atomisers and tanks are crucial to each method. For straight to lung vaping you don't want atomisers/tanks with air flow control. The looser the air flow, the better the vapour clouds will be, meaning vapers like to be able to vary this themselves. 

Which Method Should I Use?

We can't tell you which method to use, since it all depends on personal preference. If you value flavour over clouds, then it's best just to stick with regular vaping, but if you want more vapour, and more of a throat hit, then straight to lung vaping is the better choice. Overall, though, either method is a great alternative to smoking, so you're on the right track whichever one you choose.
