Keeping Your Outdoor Allergies Under Control While Vaping

We’re deep into the heart of allergy season, which means that millions of sufferers are dreading going outside.  Pollen is everywhere right now, causing allergy sufferers to experience symptoms like scratchy throats, itchy eyes and runny noses.  

If you’re a vaper who tends to enjoy their hobby outside, this time of year can be a serious nightmare.  Luckily, we’re here to help. We’re gonna provide you with some tips that can help you get through this season relatively unscathed.

Consider Vaping Indoors

First of all, you probably know that during allergy season, it’s best to stay indoors as much as possible if you get symptoms.  So, if you can, try to vape inside. Many vapers are hesitant to do this because they don’t want their house to be filled with vapor.  But, unlike cigarette smoke, vapor doesn’t linger in the air, nor does it cling to clothes and upholstery.

If you really don’t want vapor in your home, you can always blow into a thick piece of fabric like a sweater, your pillowcase or a towel.  The vapor will simply absorb into the material rather than getting dispersed into the air.

Consider Keeping the Windows Closed

It’s also wise to keep your windows closed as pollen can easily travel from the outdoors into your home through those screens.  If you tend to vape out the window, follow the advice above to keep vapor from filling up your room.

Take Those Allergy Meds

Of course, the most important thing to do if you suffer from allergies is to take an allergy medication.  There are plenty of over-the-counter options available, but if you feel like they don’t work, consider seeing an allergist for a stronger prescription medication.

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated during allergy season is incredibly important as your immune system strongly relies on your body having enough water.  Some particularly heavy vapers find that their habit can make them feel a little dehydrated from time to time, so consider drinking more water than usual during these spring months.

Clean Your Mouthpiece

As you know, pollen gets everywhere during the spring months, including the mouthpiece of your mod.  And, if your mouthpiece has particles of pollen inside of it, you’re going to be inhaling those when you go to take a hit, causing your symptoms to get worse.  So, each day, consider rinsing out your mouthpiece to avoid worsening your symptoms.

Don’t Leave Your Setup Outside

Again, because pollen can find its way into any crevice, leaving your setup outdoors during allergy season is a bad idea.  Small amounts of pollen can collect in your tank, meaning that you’re basically vaping pollen-infused vape juice. Needless to say, this won’t help your symptoms at all.  

Make a point to keep your kit inside as much as possible.  Even leaving it in the car can cause pollen to accumulate as pollen can find its way through the cracks of your car doors.

Allergy Vaping Sufferers, There’s Hope for You Yet!

For those who suffer from allergies, vaping outdoors during the springtime can lead to all kinds of unwanted symptoms.  Thankfully, there are some easy ways to ensure that you continue enjoying your vaping life without feeling overwhelmed by watery eyes and a stuffy nose.  Follow these tips for a glorious vaping experience all season long.

Braving the Winter Vaping Outdoors

If you haven’t noticed, we have entered the coldest stage of the winter season. For those who vape outdoors, it can be a bit tedious to bundle up just to get in a few satisfying hits. Believe it or not, the winter season affects your vape sessions beyond your level of comfort. In fact, cold weather can alter everything from the thickness of your fog to how well your batteries function.

However, just because it is cold out doesn’t mean that you have to run to the vape shop and invest in a whole new setup. There are a few very easy tips that you can take in order to get the most out of your wintertime vaping sessions.

Tip #1: Switch Up the VG/PG Ratio of Your E-Liquid

E-Liquid is composed of lots of different molecules that come from its various ingredients. Many flavoring ingredients consist of molecules that freeze when exposed to cold air. However, because vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are compounds that are derived from alcohol, they’ll stop your juice from freezing into a solid mass.

However, because of those flavor molecules, your liquid will change in consistency.  Cold weather makes juice thicker, meaning that your vapor will be thicker. For those all about those massive, fluffy clouds, this might be good news. However, if you’re more into that strong throat hit, you’re probably going to want to increase your PG level in order to compensate for the cold.

Tip #2. Don’t Leave Your Vaping Hardware Outdoors

If you’re the type of vaper who leaves their device and/or hardware pieces outdoors or even in the car, you’re gonna want to be a little more careful during the winter season. When your mod is left outside on a cold day, its technological components can freeze, meaning that your unit just won’t work as well. Cold weather can damage your display screen as well as the internal mechanisms that keep it running smoothly.

This applies to your vape batteries as well. Batteries should never get cold because this can cause them to greatly decrease in capacity. When the weather is cold, a battery’s electrons move more slowly, meaning that the battery must try harder to power your device. This drains your batteries quickly and can permanently lower their capacity level.

If you can, store your hardware in a warm place indoors. While it doesn’t need to kept somewhere hot, make sure that it’s a place far away from any particularly drafty areas.

Tip #3: Treat Yourself to Seasonal Flavors to Get into the Winter Spirit

One of the best things about wintertime vaping is being able to indulge in winter-inspired e-liquid flavors. During the wintertime, we tend to crave richer desserts that keep us feeling warm during the cold months. If you want to watch your weight, you can satisfy your cravings with indulgent Highbrow juices that are inspired by the desserts that are abundant during this time of year.

Don’t Be Left in the Vaping Cold

By following these tricks, those freezing temperatures don’t have to ruin your experience.  You’ll be able to enjoy those smooth, flavorful hits no matter what’s going on with the weather.
