Mouth to Lung vs. Direct Lung Vaping
Every vaper has a preferred technique for vaping.
Once you get into it, you’ll realize that most of the other vapers in the community keep talking about mouth to lung vaping (MTL) and direct lung hits (DTL). However, before you find the one method that suits your needs, it’s better if you have all the available information at your disposal. In this article, we are going to explain to you what MTL and DTL mean, and we’ll give you a few extra VeppoCig tips you might find useful.
Mouth to Lung Vaping (MTL)
Let’s start off with mouth to lung vaping or MTL. This is a technique used by ex-smokers and vapers that love a good throat hit sensation. You inhale the vapor in your mouth, hold it there and then release it in your lungs. Transitioning smokers and ex-smokers love this method because it’s the closest to smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. Furthermore, for vaping beginners, it’s also more suitable than the direct lung hit because it gives them time to adjust to the effect of the vapor on the lungs/body.
For the mouth to lung vaping technique, vaping devices with a tighter draw like vape pens and e-cigs are ideal.
Another plus for vapers that practice MTL is the richness of the flavor in the vape juice. This is a logical conclusion since taste receptors are found on the tongue and in the upper digestive system of the body. Moreover, the fact that you add a lot less air when you’re mouth to lung vaping allows the vapor to spend more time in your mouth and thus activate the taste buds. If the flavor is an essential part of vaping for you, then MTL might be right for you.
If you like high levels of nicotine and more PG-rich e-liquids, then mouth to lung is a good idea. Of course, the level of nicotine depends on your needs, and sometimes it can take a while before you get it right. However, it’s best you don’t test it with direct lung hits because it might make you feel sick and dizzy. MTL makes PG, nicotine-rich vape juices smoother, and you can afford to take bigger hits that deliver more nicotine into the body without feeling nauseating.
Direct Lung Vaping (DTL)
Direct lung vaping is reserved for experienced vapers that don’t need to vape with high-nicotine level e-liquids and fancy the intense vaping experience.
A direct lung/ straight to lung inhale is when you inhale the vapor directly into your lungs, without holding it into your mouth first. It’s far more intense then MTL because you take the vapor in the lungs, and you don’t use your mouth to control the flow. However, if you’re into vape tricks, then you vape DTL style!
If you’re a vaping pro that does vaping tricks, then you should stick to VG e-liquids because that way you won’t hurt the throat despite the more massive clouds. The nicotine strength, however, as we said above, it’s a personal preference, but try not to overdo it. Most of the DTL vapers go with very low nicotine levels like 0.6 percent, 0.3 percent, or even 0 percent.
The best vaping devices on the market for DTL vaping are vape mods. Moreover, you also might require a bigger tank with an easy filling mechanism.
The vaping style is a personal preference of the vaper, and you should try out these methods for yourself to see which one comes naturally to you.
