    Default More VG = Sore throat?

    I'm vaping the most VG I have so far, and I have a wicked sore throat. The juice is 50/50. Coincidence or can VG make your throat hurt?

    It's usually other way around, PG gives sore throat. PG made me cough so I bumped up the VG. VG is thick and leaves a feeling like there's a coat of grease in the mouth/throat, but that doesn't make me cough. Vaping a lot, like I do (6ml a day of low nic) DOES dry you out and that could mess with your throat, mouth, glands. It's cliche but...lots of water!

    Have you had the same juice with a different PG/VG ratio? There are numerous factors that can irritate your throat, including nicotine content and purity, flavorings (and flavoring quality), PG, additives, alcohol, etc. Each vendor and each flavor can use different ingredients.

    I use mainly VG---can only take SMALL amounts of PG.

    On a heavy vaping day, with VG, the throat will get scratchy. I sip on a drink constantly.
    Some flavors make it worse: Cinnamon for example. Hard candy or throat lozenges help if it gets real bad.

    I'm beginning to wonder if it's just FSUSA's stuff that my throat doesn't like. When I had some samples of their 24mg nic juices, I just thought the nic content was too high for me. I ordered some 12mg and 6mg stuff from them, but my throat is scratchy again.

    The 50/50 stuff I thought was making it hurt is from Vapor Bomb, 12mg.

    I hope it isn't FSUSA because they have 3 of my favorite flavors!

    I got some stuff from there. First purchase wasn't bad. The second not-so-good. I'm using a little bit at time in some DIY stuff.

    i also usually find it the other way around. when i first started vaping i was using all PG or really close to it. now i order my juice with more VG. normally not more than 40% though. my wife also had the same issue but probably worse than me and now uses a higher % of VG in all her juices as well. she would probably vape all VG or close to it if she didnt use tanks. ive been trying to switch her over to cartos for this reason.

    I use Johnson Creek's Red Oak line of smoke juice, which is 100% VG. No problems here.

    FSUSA...got samples from them, PureCig, Wyatt Earp, Outlaw, Rider & Maxboro, all tobacco flavors. With exception of Maxboro, ALL pepper juice! They made me cough. Nice folks, but I won't touch the juice.

    JC's Red Oak is nice, remarkably thin juice for VG, but sweet. No coughing. Their JC Original PG did scratch my throat.

    I've come to the conclusion that it is something in FSUSA's juice that is killing my throat. This sucks. I love 3 of their juices and I only have 6 juices that I like.
