How To Blow Vape Rings

Many people take up vaping as a way to quit smoking by replacing cigarettes with a product that can satisfy their nicotine cravings. In addition to ex-smokers, however, there is an entire class of vape user that vapes for the fun and enjoyment of it, and a big part of the vaping community are so-called vaping “party tricks” and “games” that can be used to wow other people.

These tricks range from the super easy to the super difficult, and one of the most popular of them all is the smoke ring, also called a “vape ring” or “O ring”, which actually originated with smokers. It looks impressive and it is deceptively easy to do.

Here’s how you can start blowing your own vape rings.

The Method

First of all, you will need some form of vaping device. You can make vape rings with pretty much any device that produces a fair amount of vapour. The only type of device you may have trouble with, depending on the manufacturer, are cig-a-likes, also known as basic e-cigs. For the best results, we recommend using a vape pen like our V-Twist Series or a more powerful vape like our Vibe Series to blow vape rings with and for other vaping tricks.

  1. Take a pull on your vape and inhale into your throat.
  2. Press your tongue down and towards the back of your throat.
  3. Make an ‘O’ shape with your lips.
  4. Push a small amount of vapour out using your throat in a pulsing motion.

That’s it. The size of the O you make with your lips will correlate to the size of the ‘ring’ that is produced. If you want to make bigger, fatter rings then tuck your lips in instead of pushing them out---this is a common mistake.

If you’re struggling:

  • Keep your lips steady as you’re pushing the small bit of air out.
  • Make sure that your tongue is as far back as possible.
  • Try to push a small amount of air out of your lower throat without taking a breath and without moving your lower jaw. Once you can do this, you should find it easier to make vape rings.

Advanced Tips for Better Smoke Rings

If you’ve got the basics down, there are a few ‘advanced’ tips that you can use to blow better smoke rings:

  • Slightly jut your jaw forward to push out the smoke rings faster and farther.
  • Make them look better by curling your lips just as the vapour leaves your mouth.
  • Add some backspin to them by pushing your tongue forward as the vapour is leaving your mouth. When you do this, however, keep the tongue at the bottom of your mouth behind the teeth. Use the middle of your tongue to quickly push the vapour out.

Common Reasons Why People Can’t Blow Them

Not everybody has good luck with blowing smoke rings, and it is common for people to initially struggle. Here are four common reasons why you might be having trouble:

Poor Form

The most common reason that people struggle to make vape rings is poor form. It is really important to form the right shape with your mouth and push your tongue as far down and back as is possible. This allows enough vapour to get to the ‘O’ shape and make a ring. It also helps to push your lips against your teeth and not pucker too much. It’s all about finding the right balance.

Poor Technique

Although applying spin is an optional extra, it really helps. This is because applying spin helps keep smoke rings in shape for much longer. If you simply just blow vapour rings without any spin, the ring will dissipate quickly after it forms, if it forms at all.

Not Enough Vapour

If you are not inhaling a sufficient amount of vapour, then there is no way that you’ll be able to make rings from it. This is because the rings are made from lots of vapour. So, if you’re having trouble, check that your tank has enough e-liquid in it.

Unsuitable Surroundings

Your environment has a big impact on how successful you’ll find blowing vape rings. If you are in a windy environment, for example, then any rings will be blown away before you can see them. Ideally, you want a calm environment with little-to-no air movement for the best chance of success.

Wrong Vape Juice

In some cases, vapers will find that they're simply using the wrong e-juice. Vape liquids that have a higher concentration of VG work better when it comes to performing vape tricks. The reason for this is simple: the VG helps produce larger clouds of vapour.

While some vape tricksters prefer to use e-liquids that contain only VG and no PG, there are those who use a 50/50 ratio of VG to PG. By some accounts, it's the 70VG/30PG ratio that works best for performing tricks while vaping.
