The Vape Vocab: Feel Like Learning A New Language?

We get it. The vape vocab can be challenging, like learning a foreign language, but once you get the hang of it you’ll find it’s as fun and cool as anything and everything from our Hype Collection. Knowing the talk makes you one of our crew. That’s why we’re launching this new feature where we translate the insider terms into plain ol’ English. Let’s start with a few ABC’s—literally.

Analog – This is a popular word we’ve made one of our own. Depending on the industry, this means different things to different folks. Timekeepers know it well as a clock or watch with hands rather than digits. Nerds and geeks claim it for their own too. They use it wistfully when talking about old school computer technology that was their domain before the newer, digital formats shook their worlds.

If you’re seeing a pattern developing here, you’re right on the money. We took a page from a few different other industries and drew a line straight between the word analog and term old school. That’s why you’ll hear insiders in our community using it to refer to traditional tobacco cigarettes in the vape vocab.

Blanks – Here’s another word that’s got as many uses as the places where you can enjoy one of our products. Let’s set this up. Everyone has heard the phrase “shooting blanks,” right? Although that’s not such a good thing used that way, we’ve put a different spin on it.   Here at Propaganda we love blanks because it’s what we call a cartridge that a fellow vaper has emptied. Our “blanks” are just waiting to be refilled with the vaper’s e-liquid of choice. And, yes, in case you’re wondering, that’s a hint!

Cloud Chaser – Some of our favorite peeps fall into this category. These are the puff wizards creating great clouds of vapor by adjusting e-cig components. Take a look around, the chances are you won’t have to look far to find a Cloud Chaser—they’re everywhere.

When you find one, be sure to make friends. After reading this, you’ll have something to talk about.
