So do you want to learn how to create a throat hit, or do you want to eliminate it? It’s all up to personal preference in the end.

If you’re in the camp that wants to reduce the amount of throat hit in your vaping experience, then we have some tips for you.


How To Reduce Throat Hit

There are two options that you have if you want a weaker throat hit. The first is to choose a lower nicotine concentration in your e-juice. If you don’t vape juice with nicotine, then throat hit is practically impossible since nicotine causes the slight contraction in your throat muscles that you feel in the throat hit sensation.


The second option to reduce throat hit involves using e-juice that contains a higher PH. The flavors that you’ll likely be after are citric flavors.


How About Other Vape Sensations?

The ideal throat hit involves a perfect blend of flavor and sensation, plus amount of vapor and warmth. Once you’ve found your ideal amount of throat hit, you might be looking for something new. There is more to explore and it certainly derives from trying new combinations.
