Many people who vape have come into contact with people who call themselves "cloud chasers". These people who practice cloud chasing are those who exhale largeĀ "clouds" of vapour after using their vape pen.

Those who are particularly interested in creating plumes of vapour often choose e-liquids with high percentages of vegetable glycerin, which produces more vapour when exhaled. In our article here, we explain what e-liquid is made from and how vapour is created by these ingredients.

The "cloud chaser" group commonly does vape tricks as well, using their skills to create interesting visual effects. Some even partake in competitions, but most just see it as a fun thing to do among friends.

The issue many vapers have with cloud chasing is that non-vapers may see the act as annoying, attention seeking or obnoxious. While smokers tend to smoke away from people and try to be discreet, many see vapers the opposite due to the cloud chasing movement.
