Also, make sure that you have a good vape mod and a sub-ohm vape tank
The Ghost Inhale
The Ghost inhale is also referred to as the snap inhale or mushroom cloud. It is a beginner’s trick that entails the release of a ball of vapor, followed by an act of ‘snapping’ it back in. One can do a Ghost Inhale by taking a long drag and allowing it to linger in the oral cavity for a few seconds, and afterward quickly exhale the vapor in a ball shape.
The dragon is a great vape trick with which one can easily impress their peers. It is a bit extravagant in that it literally makes you look like a dangerous dragon. All you have to do is take a drag – but don’t inhale it; instead, use force to exhale it through your nose and through both sides of your mouth.
The waterfall is a great vape trick which basically turns vape into a heavy and fun water-like substance. This impressive vape trick is not that hard to master. The waterfall can be achieved by incorporating a bottle that has frozen water on the bottom. As you take a drag, blow it into the bottle and slowly pour it out.
The Vapor Bubble
The vapor bubble is a vape trick that makes a huge bubble. You can make a bubble by trapping your exhaled vapor inside a bubble. It’s super easy and looks very impressive. All you need to do is make a cut on the bottom of a plastic bottle and use a mixture of hand soap and water. Make sure that the bottle you’re using is relatively small. Afterward, lower the end of the bottle into the liquid, then gently exhale your vapor.
As the name refers, this trick involves making the letter O out of vapor. All you have to do is take a deep drag and keep it in your throat. Also, make sure that your tongue is at the bottom of your mouth and towards the back of your throat. Next, you will have to create an ‘O’ shape with your lips, which shouldn’t be too hard. Once you got the O shape down, make quick, pulsing movements with your throat, and allow the vape to come out in the shape of the letter O.
Double and Triple Vape Rings
As the name suggests, this is blowing two, or even three, O rings at the same time. Although it looks impressive, the technique is quite simple if you’ve mastered blowing Os. Simply place a finger over your mouth, pressing and pulling down slightly on the top lip to split the opening of your mouth into two sections. Now you get two Os for the price of one! Triple Os work on the same principle: use two fingers to split your exhale, but open your mouth wider for best results.
Also known as the Atomic Bomb and the Force Field, there are countless variations on this crowd-pleasing trick. The basic idea is to push a small O through the centre of a larger one so they combine to resemble a jellyfish or mushroom cloud. This is difficult to master so may require a lot of practice. Blow a large single O ring then immediately place your hand behind it and push it slightly to make the O to slow down. Then push a smaller O through the centre, similar to first part of the Ghost Inhale. This second O pulls the first O ring around it, and leaves a trail that makes it resemble a jellyfish. As a final flourish, lean in and inhale the lot.
The name sounds fun and intimidating, and rest assured that this trick will impress anyone who sees it. This maneuver entails creating a flat pool of vapor that forms into a tornado shape. All you have to do is carefully exhale your vapor, but make sure that you do it on a super flat surface, and bear in mind that it has to be pretty thick. The next step is to make use of your hands and chop at the surface. Afterward, flick your wrist up and raise your arm. Make sure to do it all at once.
Bored with O rings? Use hand movements to turn it into a triangle. Blow a thick milky O ring then use your hand to push it, and tap down on the side of it twice in quick succession to bend it into a triangle. Sounds simple but timing is everything. If you’re quick, you can then perform the Jellyfish for bonus vaping points.
The French Inhale
French inhale is another impressive vape trick with a fancy name. Basically, what happens during a French inhale is that the vapor flows up from the mouth, so that you can inhale it through your nostrils. To do a French inhale, let the vapor settle in your mouth after a drag. Next, gently open your mouth, push your lower jaw out and allow the vapor to exit naturally. The little twist to this trick is that you have to continually inhale through your nostrils.
The Vape Bend
This is a way of manipulating the O to direct it wherever you wish. Cup your hand next to your mouth and blow an O ring. Then follow the O with your hand, gently directing it where you want it to go. With practice you can start to spin the O and do more advanced versions such as the Infinite Bend and the Shark Bend.
The Bull Ring
The bull ring maneuver also comes in the shape of an O; however, instead of the oral cavity, one has to exhale through the nose. So, basically, you end up blowing Os through the nose. For those of you who think this might be a bit painful, don’t fret, there’s no pain involved. What you have to do is simply blow a thick medium O, and then with your nostrils, inhale the top part of the ring. This might take some time and master.
