What does Vape mean?

Breathing in and out the mist from an electronic cigarette

When we talk about ‘Vape’, we’re really talking about the act of inhaling and exhaling vapor from an e-cigarette. It’s become a popular alternative to traditional tobacco smoking.

This type of smoking, also known as vaping, has been on the rise as people look for ways to enjoy smoking without many of the harmful effects associated with tobacco.

Interestingly, vaping was originally the brainchild of a Chinese pharmacist. Thanks to Mr. Lee, this new form of smoking took off in the United States around the 2000s.

So, next time you hear someone talking about ‘vaping’, you’ll know they’re referring to the act of puffing on an e-cigarette, not a traditional tobacco one.

Example for using ‘Vape’ in a conversation

Hey, have you tried vaping?

Yeah, I’ve been doing it for a while now. It’s a cool alternative to smoking.

I’ve heard it’s less harmful. How does it work exactly?

Well, you use an e-cigarette and inhale and exhale the vapor instead of smoke. It’s pretty simple.
