Educating new vapers has never been more important, here’s how vape stores are helping beginners get started in the vaping game – safely and responsibly.
More and more people have started picking up vapes every day, and this uphill trend shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. But getting started with vaping sometimes isn’t just as simple as picking up a new vape kit and bottle of e-liquid – there’s a whole world of brands, device types, and regulations that you’ll need to understand to really get the most out of your vape.
For people who have just begun vaping and are starting out completely from scratch, all this information might seem quite intimidating at first. Where do you even start? And what’s the most essential information beginners need to know? Thankfully, many vaping companies are offering up different types of guides that cover a wide range of topics such as device types, e-liquid flavours, vaping techniques, and safe vaping tips.
Here’s a breakdown of all the educational resources, both digital and in-person, available for new vapers out there.
One of the best ways to learn more about vapes is to ask the experts themselves. If you walk into a vape store, you’re very likely to meet fellow vapers working behind the counter. Not only will they know everything about the brands they stock, they’ll also have their own personal experiences with vaping to share with you – along with some insider tips on getting the best vaping experience. Don’t worry about sounding too much like a newbie, the staff are here to help you with any vaping questions you have. So don’t be shy, just pop down to your local vape shop and say hello!
Many vaping companies have also started hosting live events, meetups, and workshops. While vapes may initially seem like a niche interest, these events frequently attract high attendance rates. During the October 2022 edition of Vaper Expo, Europe’s largest vape show, more than 20,000 visitors attended each day during the 3 day event. These numbers continue to show signs of growth each year as the vaping community begins to expand as well. During these live sessions, vapers have the opportunity to learn more about the latest trends in vaping, try out new vape kits and e-liquids, as well as meet industry experts and ask them any burning questions they may have.
Not only are these events a great way to learn more about vapes, they’re also a really fun way to meet like-minded vapers who are in the same boat as you. You might meet other fellow beginners, or even start chatting with more experienced vapers who’ll be more than happy to share their vaping wisdom with you.
A really handy way of educating yourself about vapes is to have a look through the many online resources available out there. Many vape companies, such as Vaping 101, regularly publish comprehensive guides to help answer any question that vapers might have. Whether you’re looking for the lowdown on the best e-liquids of the year, or want to be more informed about TPD regulations and nicotine addiction, these guides are sure to answer every question you’ll have about vaping. Plus, with how quick and easy they are to read you’ll be able to get through them on a quick bus ride and walk out of there a vaping expert!
The vaping world is very community-based, with vapers of all experience levels helping each other out with any problems or teaching each other the latest vaping tricks. Vape companies have definitely noticed this, and have now established their own online communities and forums. The great thing about these online communities is that not only will you come out with any vaping questions answered, you’ll also be able to share your personal experiences with other vapers.
If you’re more of a visual learner, don’t fret! Plenty of vaping companies have produced their own video tutorials to help you with any of your vaping problems. Vaping 101, for instance, has produced videos that accurately demonstrate proper vaping techniques, device maintenance, vaping safety, and other important tips. For those of you looking for a quick and easy way to learn more about your vape, these snappy video tutorials will do just the trick!
Educating new vapers has never been more important. With the rise of unregulated, and sometimes even unsafe vapes, all vapers need to be more aware about the ways to vape responsibly. But that doesn’t mean vaping should be a purely technical experience, aside from learning about how to vape safely you’ll also find plenty of guides about the best e-liquid flavours and how to customise your vape kit. Once you have all the basics down, you can vape easily knowing you’re doing so safely.
