Newbie Tips: How to Use a Vape Pen

Back in 2015, 29.8% of vapers used to be regular cigarette smokers. As the popularity of vaping’s grown, that number is probably much higher now, with people choosing to give up a bad habit and pick up a much better one for their bodies.

If you’re a regular smoker, then you may be contemplating ways to still get your nicotine or cannabis rush, but in a healthier way. To help you out, here’s how to use a vape pen.

Charge the Battery

If this is the first time you’re using your vape pen, you’ll have to charge up the battery first. If you’re using secondhand items, it’s probably a good idea to charge it up anyway so the battery doesn’t run out in the middle of your session.

Load Your Vape

Whether you want to vape CBD, THC, or nicotine, you have to first load your chosen liquid or concentrate into the vape pen. If you’re using dry herbs, then you’ll have to first grind it down for it to burn better. Since every vape pen is different, you’ll have to consult with the manual to ensure that you’ve done it correctly.

If you want to avoid this hassle, you can also purchase prefilled cartridges. All you have to do is screw it onto your vape pen and you’re done.

Turn on Your Vape

Vape pens will have a button on it; you’ll need to click it around 5 times to turn your vape on. If it doesn’t turn on after 5 clicks, check with the user manual to see if there are different instructions.

If you’re using dry herbs, you’ll have to wait for the vape pen to reach a certain temperature to proceed with inhaling; you’ll know it’s ready by a light indicator.


These pens are extremely easy to inhale from. Simply click and hold the button while you put your lips to the mouthpiece and inhale. Hold in your breath for a few seconds, then exhale it.

You can repeat this process as many times as you need.

Turn off Your Vape

Once you’re done with your vaping session, you’ll have to turn off your vape and properly store it so it doesn’t get damaged. Simply click the button 5 times (or however many times the manual says) and make sure your pen’s turned off. You can usually tell it’s off when all the lights have gone off.

Put your vape pen into its storage case and either put it away safely or into your bag if you’re on the go.

Know How to Use a Vape Pen Correctly

By knowing how to use a vape pen correctly, you’ll ensure that you get the best mileage out of your pen and your vape juice or cannabis. Plus, the next time you bring out your vape pen, you won’t fumble around with it, looking like you’re completely new at it. You’ll look like a pro to all your friends!
