Why Isn’t My Vape Making Smoke?

Though most CBD in vape pen these days are made to last, if you vape regularly, you might face some issues occasionally. One such issue could be that your vape may stop making smoke on one fine day, or rather not so fine day. 

There could be many reasons for this issue. If you are asking, “Why isn’t my vape making smoke?" you are not alone. Below are some common reasons for vape pen malfunction, and identifying them may help eliminate the problem.

1. Dead or Weak Battery

The most common culprit is often the simplest: a dead or weak battery. Ensure your vape pen’s battery is working and you did not forget to charge it. If your device has been in use for a long time, the battery may be nearing the end of its life and might need replacing.

2. Clogged Airflow

Over time, residue can accumulate and clog the airflow of your vape pen, impeding its ability to produce vapour. Regularly check the air vents and clean them gently with a paper towel or a small brush.

3. Burnt or Worn-Out Coil

The coil is the element that heats the e-liquid and turns it into vapour. A burnt or worn-out coil will not efficiently heat the e-liquid, producing little to no vapour. Changing the coil is often an effective solution.

4. Low or Empty E-Liquid Tank

Without enough e-liquid in the tank, the coil cannot produce vapour. Check your tank and refill it with e-liquid if it is running low or empty.

5. Wrong Settings

Modern vape pens come with variable voltage and wattage settings. If these settings are too low, your device may not produce visible vapour. Consult your user manual and adjust the settings as needed.

6. Faulty Device

Sometimes the issue may be with the vape pen itself. If you have tried everything and your device is still not producing vapour, it may be time to consult with a professional or consider purchasing a new device.


While vaping can be a pleasant experience, running into issues like your vape not producing smoke can be frustrating. By routinely checking the battery, cleaning the airflow, replacing worn-out coils, ensuring you have enough e-liquid, and adjusting your device’s settings, you can significantly reduce the chances of encountering this issue.

Finally, remember that troubleshooting can vary between devices due to differences in design and functionality, so it is always a good idea to refer to your vape pen’s user manual for specific guidance.
