Who You Gonna Call?
Maybe you’ve seen people who perform those awesome displays of vape tricks online. This is called Ghosting and performing tricks is one of the reasons why people get drawn into vaping. Yeah, you can perform smoke tricks when you’re smoking cigarettes. However, the variety of tricks that you can perform while smoking is more limited. With vaping, there are numerous tricks that you can perform. There is also an abundance of YouTube videos you can watch if you want to learn a few vaping tricks that you can use to impress your friends. One of the easiest among these tricks is ghosting. Ghosting is a trick where the vapor comes out of your mouth as you exhale it into a solid form that sort of resembles a ghost. The trick doesn’t end there though, you have to inhale back the vapor you just exhaled.
Should I Try It?
If you are unfamiliar with vape tricks, then, sure ghosting is a great way to start. It is not that difficult to perform. It’s one of the first tricks most people learn when they first start trying to learn tricks. If you’re not looking to get egg on your face, it is best to start with an easy to master trick which still looks quite impressive.
Also, you don’t need to use props or other materials to do it. Which makes it easy for you to perform this trick anytime, anywhere. You can ‘ghost’ with any flavor e-liquid that you want. Some vaping tricks require can a much more elaborate set-up and some materials are necessary for a trick to work. Such as the Vapor Bubble, for instance. If you want to perform this trick, aside from your vape pen, you need soap and water, and a toilet paper roll for it to work. I’m pretty sure that you don’t walk around carrying soapy water and a toilet paper roll all the time. So, start with something simple which doesn’t require extra materials, such as ghosting.
Inhaling And Exhaling
The very first thing you should practice before you can master the ghost vape trick is your inhaling technique. This is the most important part of the trick and how successful you are directly relates to your ability to inhale the vapor. Most often, this is the part that first timers have difficulty with. Especially those who have maybe never tried smoking and went straight to vaping. With vaping, you take a lung hit. This means that you pull the vapor and send it straight to your lungs. When you perform the ghost vape trick, you take a mouth hit instead. This is something common to those who used to smoke cigarettes, because most smokers use the mouth hit when they first try smoking..
Even if you don’t like nicotine and have never tried smoking, you can learn mouth hit fairly easily. It’s done the same way as when you drink from a straw. Picture yourself drinking from a straw and immediately gulping down, that is similar to the lung hit. By the same token, a mouth hit is like drinking from a bottle with the use of straw. Only instead of gulping or swallowing the liquid, your hold the liquid in your mouth. Try not to breathe through your nose while doing this part because it can affect the vapor quality of the ghost.
Releasing is the second part of the trick. For this part, you need to release the vapor as a ball of vapor. This is different from just exhaling a stream of vapor the way that you do when you’re just regular vaping. With regular vaping, you blow or breathe out a cloud of vapor. For this trick, you want to release a could that is more substantial or with more form.
The way that you shape your mouth plays a big role in this part. Before you release the vapor, you’ll want to form a tight O shape with your mouth or lips. The tightness of the O shape will help you make a better vapor cloud. Once you have that perfect O shape, you need to release the vapor by pushing it out of your mouth with the help of your tongue. Unlike blowing or exhaling where the vapor cloud may come out distorted, a push of the tongue can help the vapor cloud retain its shape. Another thing you need to remember is that the force of the push of the tongue will determine the distance your vape cloud will travel. A hard push of the tongue will send the vape cloud further from your face while a softer push of the tongue will release the vapor cloud closer to your face. I prefer a softer push of the tongue since the further away the vapor cloud is, the harder it will be to perform the third part of the trick. You can experiment on the distance of the vapor cloud as you get better with this trick. But, if you’re just starting out, it will be easier to stick to a softer push of the tongue.
The force as you flick your tongue will affect the density of the vapor cloud that you release as well.. A soft flick of the tongue will result in a more dense and solid-looking vapor cloud. A harder flick of the tongue will give you a thinner, albeit a much bigger vapor cloud. A denser or more solid-looking cloud is easier to capture. It also looks better, since the cloud will look more defined. The thinner clouds are more difficult to capture and most of the time, you will end up with wisps of vapor floating away.
The last part of this trick is the Inhaling part. After you release your vape cloud, you need to inhale it again or capture it with your mouth. Just like when you released it, the way that you shape your mouth and lips is important. You’ll want to shape your mouth with your lips facing outward or away from your mouth. This will let you capture the ghost more efficiently. The way that you shape your mouth will also determine the speed by which you inhale the ghost. The larger the shape you make with your mouth, the faster you can inhale the ghost back. If you open your mouth all the way, you will inhale the ghost really fast. A smaller opening of the mouth will result in a slower inhale of the ghost.
It Is Simple
When performing this trick, people say to try to use a medium opening of the mouth so the vapor cloud inhalation is not too fast or too slow. Try to keep your mouth halfway open. Most of the people who perform this trick inhale back the ghost slower. A slower inhale looks more appealing thusly impressing the audience more.
So, there you go. Ghosting is really just that simple. A portable vape and a lot of patience are all you need.
