How to Ghost Vape: 6 Easy Steps to Ghost Inhale

Published 18 September 2023, Updated 10 April 2024

How to Ghost Vape: 6 Easy Steps to Ghost Inhale

The ghost vape, or ghost inhale, is a vape trick that involves taking a draw of vapour into the mouth, then using the tongue to gently push out the vapour in a ball shape, then quickly inhaling it back, creating a fleeting "ghost" effect of the vapour before it is sucked back into the lungs.

The ghost vape trick is one of the easiest vape tricks to perform, given enough practice. It can take a few days of practice to perfect the trick. When practising the ghost trick, use a low-nicotine or zero-nicotine e-liquid to prevent the side effects of inhaling too much nicotine.

Below is a list of the 6 steps of how to ghost inhale.

  1. Take a Mouth Hit
  2. Hold the Vapour in Your Mouth for 2-3 Seconds
  3. Shape Your Mouth Into a Tight “O” Shape
  4. Release the Vapour in a Ball Shaped Cloud
  5. Use Your Tongue to Control the Release
  6. Inhale the Vapour

1. Take a Mouth Hit

Take a mouth hit, not a lung hit, when initiating the ghost vape inhale. A mouth hit involves drawing the vapour into your mouth and holding it there to create a thick cloud. The type of hit you take determines the kind of vapour you produce. Inhaling the vapour directly into your lungs reduces the vapour's density.

A mouth hit allows for denser vapour and better vapour control, making it easier to perform the ghost inhale trick effectively.

2. Hold the Vapour in Your Mouth for 2-3 Seconds

Hold the vapour in your mouth for about 2-3 seconds after taking a mouth hit. This brief pause allows the vapour to cool slightly, making it denser and easier to manipulate. The denser the vapour, the more visible and impressive your ghost inhale will be.

3. Shape Your Mouth Into a Tight “O” Shape

Shape your mouth into a tight "O" shape when you're ready to release the vapour. This shape will help you create the ghost or ball of vapour. It's this ball of vapour that you'll be inhaling back in to create the ghost inhale effect.

4. Release the Vapour in a Ball Shaped Cloud

Release the vapour in a ball-shaped cloud from your mouth to create the ghost. To achieve this, exhale slowly and let the vapour flow out of your mouth naturally rather than forcefully exhaling it. This method allows the vapour to maintain its dense, ball-like form, which is fundamental to the ghost inhale trick.

5. Use Your Tongue to Control the Release

Use your tongue to control the release of the vapour. By slowly pushing the vapour out with your tongue, you can control the distance and density of the vapour ball or ghost. The harder you push, the further the vapour ball will travel. The softer you push, the denser the vapour ball will be.

6. Inhale the Vapour

Inhale the vapour ball back into your mouth to complete the ghost inhale trick. The way you inhale can affect how the ghost looks. Shape your mouth into a slight "O" formation and inhale slowly. This method allows the vapour to linger in the air longer, creating a more visually appealing ghost inhale.

You can opt to 'snap inhale', which is a faster inhaling technique. The main advantage of snap inhaling is reducing the likelihood of the cloud dissipating. The main disadvantage of the snap inhale is that the ball-shaped vapour cloud will disappear faster, making the trick less appealing.

How Do You Make the Vapour Come Out in a Ball Rather Than a Cloud?

To make the vapour come out in a ball formation rather than as a cloud, release the vapour naturally rather than exhaling forcefully.

Start by shaping your mouth into a tight "O" formation. This shape helps guide the vapour into a ball-like form as it leaves your mouth. Next, use your tongue to control the release of the vapour. Gently push the vapour out with your tongue, letting it naturally flow out of your mouth.

The key here is to avoid any forceful exhaling, which can disrupt the ball shape and cause the vapour to disperse into a cloud.

How Can I Control the Distance and Density of a Ghost Vape?

You can control the distance and density of a ghost vape by varying the force exerted by your tongue when releasing the vapour.

For ghost vape distance control, the harder you push the vapour out with your tongue, the further the vapour ball will travel. Conversely, a lighter push will keep the vapour ball closer to your face.

For ghost vape density, a softer push generally produces a denser ghost ball. A softer push allows the vapour to exit your mouth more slowly, maintaining its thick, dense form. A denser ghost is often more visible and can create a more impressive visual effect.

How Do I Properly Inhale the Ghost Once It's Released?

To properly inhale the ghost once it’s released, maintain a slight "O" formation with your mouth and inhale the vapour slowly. This preserves the vapour's shape and density, enhancing the trick's visual appeal.

A slower inhalation speed allows the vapour to linger in the air longer, enhancing the visual effect and giving you more control over the ghost. A fast inhalation might cause the vapour to dissipate quickly, reducing the impact of the trick.

What Are the Side Effects of Ghost Vaping?

The side effects of the ghost inhale vape trick can include dry mouth, mouth and throat irritation, cough, sore throat, headaches, dizziness and nausea. To avoid these side effects of vaping too much nicotine, practice the ghost inhale trick with a low-nicotine or zero-nicotine e-liquid.

What is the Difference Between a Mouth Hit and a Lung Hit?

The main difference between a mouth hit and a lung hit is that with a mouth hit, you do not inhale the vapour into your lungs but rather keep it in your mouth. The main advantage of a mouth hit in the context of the ghost vape trick is much denser and fuller-looking clouds than those produced by inhalation and exhalation from the lungs.

When it comes to how to vape, the most beginner-friendly inhalation method is the mouth-to-lung (MTL) technique. MTL involves taking a mouth hit and then inhaling the vapour into the lungs. The ghost trick uses the same mouth hit as is used in the MTL method but involves inhaling the ball-like vapour cloud into the lungs.
