The Sport of Cloud Chasing: Sub-Ohm Vaping on Another Level

Modified sub-ohm vaping gear can put you on cloud nine.

 It's all about incredible intensity and taking your e-cigarette experience to a whole new level. Not only is your device configured to deliver a far richer taste, but sub-ohm vaping delivers incredibly large clouds. Making — and chasing — them has become something of a sport in its own right.  Sub-ohm vaping is all due to the coils that heat e-liquid having an electrical resistance of less than 1 ohm. It’s also known as “stunt vaping” or even “extreme vaping”, as the clouds can get entirely massive. Certainly sub-ohm vaping is not for everyone, but if you’re a seasoned e-cigarette user, you might want to give it a try. The practice — or art, some might say — of sub-ohm vaping is really an extension of vaping culture. Its origins may lie in the West Coast of the United States before permeating the vaping lifestyle all over the world. Now, people everywhere are trying to outdo each other with their voluminous plumes, and they can take their heady sport to a whole new level with the great range of sub-ohm vaping equipment available today.

It's become so popular that the activity has attracted sponsors and lots of fans, who are known as "cloud gazers". Competitors talk not only about the thrill of competition in creating enormous cloud formations with their sub-ohm vaping devices, but the satisfaction of being able to give up harmful tobacco. E-liquid containing nicotine is generally not used at these contests.
