Vape tricks we found to be the most entertaining and cool:

To make your training even easier, we divided vape tricks into several categories by type.

Vape Tricks Level: SUPER-EASY

#1 Ghost Inhale

How It Looks

The Ghost inhale is a trick that anyone can do even on a first try, so it’s a perfect option for beginners learning how to do cool vape tricks. It looks like a Casper-like release of a vapor ball, sometimes followed by an act of sipping it back in. The ghost hit is also known as the mushroom cloud, or the snap inhale and it is the most natural vape trick.

How To Do Ghost Inhale

You can do a Ghost Inhale by taking a long MTL drag and allowing it to linger in the oral cavity for a few seconds, and afterward let the vapor come out in a ball shape. To do this, you simply have to open your mouth, stick it out a little bit in an O-shape, and then close right away. Don’t force the vapor, hold your breath for a sec. Seriously, it’s that easy! Check out the video to see how it’s done.

#2 The Dragon

How It Looks

The dragon is a great vape trick with which one can easily impress their peers. It is a bit extravagant in that it literally makes you look like a dangerous dragon. The vapor comes out of your nose and corners of the mouth with power and menace.

How To Do Dragon Vape Trick

All you have to do is take a drag from your vaporizer. Then, use force to exhale it through your nose and through both corners of your mouth, trying to close your lips tightly only in the middle. Check out the video to master this trick.


#3 The Waterfall

How It Looks

The waterfall is a great vape trick which basically turns vape into a heavy and fun water-like substance flowing down from the bottle. This impressive vape trick is not that hard to master.

How To Do The Waterfall Vape Trick

The waterfall can be achieved by incorporating a bottle that has frozen water on the bottom. As you take a drag, blow it into the bottle and slowly pour it out. Check out the video to see this mystical effect.

#4 Vapor Bubble

How It Looks

The vapor bubble is a vape trick that makes a huge bubble. You can make a bubble by trapping your exhaled vapor inside a bubble. It’s super easy and looks very impressive.

How to do Vapor Bubble

All you need to do is make a cut on the bottom of a plastic bottle and use a mixture of hand soap and water. Make sure that the bottle you’re using is relatively small. Afterward, lower the end of the bottle into the liquid, then gently exhale your vapor. Here is the video that shows you how to perform this trick.

#5 Tornado

How It Looks

The name sounds fun and intimidating, and rest assured that this trick will impress anyone who sees it. This maneuver entails creating a flat pool of vapor that forms into a tornado shape. The tornado vape is best done with a pen or mod that gives off thick and still vapor.

How to Do Tornado Trick

All you have to do is carefully exhale your vapor, but make sure that you do it on a super flat surface, and bear in mind that it has to be pretty thick. The next step is to make use of your hands and chop at the surface. Afterward, flick your wrist up and raise your arm. Make sure to do it all at once. Watch the video for a demonstration.

#6 Liquid Mist

How It Looks

This is a great trick to impress people when you’re hanging out somewhere in the club or at the party. You can create a mist staying on top of your drink and making it look like some kind of potion.

How To Do Liquid Mist

Take a glass of any cold drink, preferably with a wide diameter (like the one for whiskey or martini). Enjoy your cocktail, and when the glass is half-full, it’s time to make a wow-effect. Take a nice rip from your vape device. After this, touch the glass rim with your lips like when drinking and slowly exhale the vapor. It will magically stay on top of the liquid.


#7 Bane & French Inhale

How It Looks

French inhale is another impressive vape trick with a fancy name. Basically, what happens during a French inhale is that the vapor flows up from the mouth when you inhale it through your nostrils. 

Bane is a reasonably advanced vape trick. It starts with the Batman series- The Dark Night Rises referring to the masks worn by Bane, the arch-villain hence the name.

How To do Bane & French Inhale

To do a French inhale, let the vapor settle in your mouth after a drag. Next, gently open your mouth, push your lower jaw out and allow the vapor to exit naturally. The little twist to this trick is that you have to continually inhale through your nostrils. To Bane, you just need to put your teeth in the way of vapor so that it comes out in thin pipes shape making you look like Bane (DC villain). Here’s the video.


#8 Blowing O’s Smok Rings

How It Looks

As the name refers, this trick involves making the letter O out of vapor.

How To Blow O’s

All you have to do is take a deep drag and keep it in your throat. Also, make sure that your tongue is at the bottom of your mouth and towards the back of your throat. Next, you will have to create an ‘O’ shape with your lips, which shouldn’t be too hard. Once you got the O shape down, make quick, pulsing movements with your throat, and allow the vape to come out in the shape of the letter O. Enjoy the video.

Double, Triple O’s

How It Looks

Blowing O’s is the oldest trick that came from smokers. It’s not much of a surprise for everyone. So, when you master your simple O’s, get ready for a more advanced trick to blow the audience away – exhale two, tree or even more O’s at the same time!

How to Blow Double, Triple O’s

You need to start by taking a deep draw from your vape device. Then, slightly open your mouth and place a finger in the middle. Slowly exhale the vapor while tapping the side of your throat with the finger of another hand. This may seem difficult, but when you get used to, you can create a room full of small vape rings. Looks fantastic. Here is the simplest tutorial.

#9 Jellyfish

How It Looks

This looks like a true jellyfish flowing in the air! 

The trick is also known as the Force Field or the Atomic Bomb. The idea is to create a small O in the middle of the large ring so that they join to form a jellyfish.

How To Do Jellyfish

To do the Jellyfish, you might want to first practise your vape bends and O-rings, described below, because the Jellyfish rick consists of that two. All you have to do is blow an O-ring, then pull it forwards by creating the airflow with palms of your hands. After this, exhale some vapor right in the middle of your flying O. Voila!

#10 Bow Tie

How It Looks

This one looks like you’re inhaling a bow-tie of vapor!

How To Do the Bow Tie

First, quickly blow a couple of O’s in a row. While they didn’t flow away, inhale it back. When you manage to inhale two O’s at once, they become thin at each side, so it looks like a bow tie.

#11 Bull Ring

How It Looks

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a pain-free, temporary ring on your nose? Here comes the Bull-Ring.

The Bull-Ring maneuver also comes in the shape of an O; however, instead of the oral cavity, one has to exhale through the nose. So, basically, you end up blowing Os through the nose.

How To Do the Bull Ring

For those of you who think this might be a bit painful, don’t fret, there’s no pain involved. What you have to do is simply blow a thick medium O, and then with your nostrils, inhale the top part of the ring. This might take some time and master. Here’s the video to help you learn how to do this trick.


#12 Vape Bending

How It Looks

It’s all about pushing your O’s all around the room. The limit is your imagination. You can bend them and lead in different directions, turn around, jink, and play with them as you wish.

How To Do the Vape Bending

Make sure you’ve got the right vape mod and PG/VG ratio in your e-liquid. Because you need that thick and heavy O’s that won’t dissipate so fast. Exhale one nice O-ring. Then, try to force the air with open palms, fingers close to each other. When you create such airflow towards your O-ring, it flies wherever you lead it.

#13 Atomic Bomb

How It Looks

At first, the Atomic Bomb looks like a Jellyfish, but there is one crucial difference. Instead of letting the second cloud float through the o-ring, like a jellyfish, the cloud gets sucked back. This way it goes backwards and looks like the mushroom cloud of a nuclear blast.

How To Do the Atomic Bomb

Since there is only one difference between a Jellyfish and an Atomic Bomb if you know the one you can do the other. Start by blowing o-rings like prepping to make a Jellyfish or Ghost. When the right o-ring appears, get right behind it, extend your head downward. Exhale the next cloud through the o-ring. One second after the exhale, take a deep breath and suck back all the vapor through the same o-ring. Bombs away!

#14 Triangles

How It Looks

A flying triangle!

How To Do the Triangles

Exhale an O-ring. Then, quickly make a move with your forearm like pushing the ring down three times in a row. It kind of rolls and changes its shape into a triangle. You’ll need a lot of attention and practice here, because your taps must be really quick.

    Just curios if you’ve been able to master “Cheerios?” I first saw them described here:

    Essentially, they’re just tinnier O’s, but I haven’t been able to figure it out.
