When someone says that they’re taking a mouth to lung vape hit, what they’re saying is that they’re drawing the vapor into their mouth before inhaling it into their lungs.
While the rationale of using this approach over a direct to lung approach may differ from one person to the next, here’s what our own analysis of these differing perspectives on how to inhale vapor has revealed.
Note: The phrase may also be a reference to a type of vaporizer, which we’ve explained in more detail in the “Mouth To Lung Vapes” segment below.
Mouth To Lung Hits
Mouth to lung hits tend to make more efficient use of blend as they often result in less blend being consumed on a per hit basis. They’re also a bit more inconspicuous as they tend to produce less visible vapor and smell less.
This is how most cigarette smokers inhale their drags.
Direct To Lung Hits
Direct to lung vaping produces larger clouds — a measure of the volume of vapor. These types of hits, where the user inhales the aerosol or vapor produced by their vaporizer directly into their lungs instead of drawing it into their mouth first, tend to offer a different sensation from their mouth to lung counterparts as users report a sensation of warmth as well as a feeling of fullness in the lungs.
Mouth To Lung Vapes
The phrase “mouth to lung vape” can also be a reference to a type of vaporizer, one specifically designed for mouth to lung hits. These types of vaporizers, according to Vaping.com, often have an output below 15 watts. They’re intended to produce smaller plumes of vapor that make efficient use of blend while maintaining the blend’s flavor profile for longer – this in comparison to direct to lung vapes that are often designed with maximum cloud production in mind.
