Mouth to Lung vs Direct Lung Vaping

Were you confused when you started vaping? Or are you still confused?  There are too many questions when it comes to vape and vaping, we will try to answer some. A lot of vaping newbies want to know especially when it comes to the next decision: mouth to lung (M2L) vs direct lung vaping (DL).
Many people who are starting to vape are meeting for the first time with the terms like vape pen, e-liquid and vape juice.

Vape and Vaping

The definition of vaping is the act of inhaling smoke-looking vapor from an electronic cigarette or vape device. Vaping simulates smoking but in a less harmful manner.
A flavored nicotine liquid called vape juice (e-juice) is what’s in a vape, but not all vapes contain nicotine. The user decides the flavor and amount of nicotine they wish to use if any at all.

Vapes are handheld electronic devices designed to produce inhalable vapor. It’s a technological solution to nicotine and tobacco smoke dependency, where the user can choose to step down or control the nicotine consumption similar to using gum or a patch, but with the familiar sensation and hand-to-mouth action as smoking.

Mouth to Lung vs Direct Lung vaping

To inhale or not, that is the question?

When you vape for the first time, the way you inhale can make or break the experience, this is extremely important. If you inhale incorrectly, it could lead to coughing or an unpleasant rush of nicotine.

There are basically two types of inhalation techniques: mouth to lung and a direct lung draw. The ideal inhalation technique depends on the vape you want to use.

Mouth to lung

M2L hits will normally work best in smaller vapes with high resistance coils, using high nicotine. When you take a drag from these devices, no matter the size of the device, it should feel like sucking air through a coffee straw. It should be tight! This type of draw makes low vapor and feels like the act of smoking, providing a similar type of hit to the throat that many smokers crave. It’s a simple technique:

  1. Slowly draw vapor into your mouth for a few seconds
  2. Hold the vapor in your closed mouth for a second or two
  3. Open mouth and breathe in the vapor to your lungs (not a “swallow”)
  4. Exhale after vapor is in lungs

Direct lung

The DL hit is mostly ideal for larger vapes with low resistance coils, using low nicotine. Taking a drag on one of these devices will usually feel like sucking air through a milkshake straw. This type of draw makes the most vapor and feels like taking a “bong hit,” though it’s considered a smooth and easy hit since it’s used mostly with low nicotine.

  1. Quickly draw vapor directly to the lungs
  2. Exhale vapor almost immediately

It is all about nicotine dosage

As a rule of thumb, high nicotine (12 mg – 60 mg) is better suited for MTL, and low nicotine (0 mg – 6 mg) is best for direct lung inhales. Medium nicotine (6 mg – 12 mg) can be okay for both types of inhaling, but typically 6 mg is the cut-off for direct lung inhales.

Whether you chose the  M2L or DL method (there is no right or wrong method), it comes down to what suits you the best.
DL  gives a more intense hit and produces much more cloud than M2L, which many vapers find more satisfying but can sometimes feel overwhelming.

Pros and Cons

Mouth to lung vaping gives a better throat hit than DL vaping does, which of course simulates the sensation that smokers are used to. You’ll also find that mouth to lung vaping makes your e-liquid last longer than it would if you were DL vaping.

Therefore, because of this and because the action of a mouth to lung vape is similar to cigarette smoking, this is often a good way to vape for most everyday vapers, and it’s the best method to start with if you’re making a move from tobacco cigarettes.

Direct to lung vaping is great if you want to produce great vapor clouds using sub ohm kits, which is why it’s often the preferred method for cloud chasers.

E-Liquid components and ingredients

Veppo premium e-liquids contain four main ingredients: a PG or VG base, nicotine, water and food grade flavorings. (You should note that other brands of e-liquid may contain different ingredients).

Both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are non-toxic organic compounds and generally considered safe for consumption by the FDA. In fact, they are widely used as food additives in a variety of commercially available food and personal care products, like ketchup, for example, there's propylene glycol in it.
