Posted


Vaping is undoubtedly a very current trend. Here’s some words you might have missed

Vaping has only really been around for the last decade or so, and like with any craze, a lot of new terminology and slang begins to pop up in those engaged with the crazes vocabulary. Like with internet language and abbreviations, there are a wide range of terms that to a non-vaper would sound like a foreign language. That’s why we thought we’d clear it up, especially for those who may be new to vaping and don’t want to fee left out when faced with the terms. It may be the opposite as well; perhaps you’ve been vaping for years, and you’ve simply been nodding along when these terms have come up. There’s no need to face save anymore, we’ve got your back!
