Vaping has definitely taken South Africa by storm, with vaping competitions, clubs, and vape shops popping up everywhere. These shops sell everything you need to take part in the latest trend. There are so many flavours out there, many handmade by mixing a few ingredients together, they contain different levels of nicotine ranging from 0mg to 12mg and sometimes higher. If you are trying to quit smoking you might need to use a flavour that has a bit of nicotine in it to satisfy your craving. Smokers have been known to also have a 0mg, it’s all about preference.
Some people vape as an alternative to smoking harmful cigarettes and others do it as a hobby or for pleasure, some people just like watching vape come out their mouths. There are many things that make vaping quite appealing. There are so many delicious flavours that you will be spoilt for choice. There are crazy sounding ones as well like Mama Bear Porridge.
People who are in pursuit of those huge clouds of vape, the ones that can fill an entire car so that you can’t see anything, the ones that stretch over a few metres, are called cloud chasers. For them, blowing a massive, thick, white cloud is the best thing ever! These cloud chasers are growing evermore popular on social media such as Facebook and Instagram.
Yes, cloud chasing is great and all and there’s nothing better than filling a room with vape to the point where you can’t see, but what about those vapers who are more serious, the ones who go on about how big their clouds are, the ones who want to blow bigger clouds than the next guy.
Serious vapers are looking for a little bit more of a prestigious form of recognition and so they partake in vaping competitions where they can win actual money and bragging rights. The exhaled vape forms a thick, white cloud hence the competitions are called cloud competitions. People flock from all over to show off the size of the clouds they can blow. There is a vaping competition happening this month (August) in the UK, it is called the world series of cloud chasing. The total prize pool is said to be over 100 000 US Dollars and vapers from all over the world will be enticed to enter the competition.
