    I'm sad today. I have been vaping so much AVE Gorilla juice I can't taste is anymore. :(
    Guess I have to switch flavors (Bees Knees, Cravelope, Hype & Christy's Cappuccino) for a few days and see. Anyone ever have this problem?

    Hey! Yeah, happens to me with all my favorite juices. Rotating flavors works,

    I had this problem for the longest time, and I nearly gave up on my favorite juices, that is until I started dripping. A good atty will keep the flavor alive better than anything. Rotating flavors is also a good habit, such as a good fruit juice to create a contrast.

    It is called sense normalization and can occur with any of our senses that get continuous and repeat information. Ever had loud music in the work place and by the end of the day realized you had "tuned it out"? Sense normalization. Ever torn a cuticle and had it hurt like a ***** but then later, not so much (sans meds)? Sense normalization.

    The easiest and best way to combat this is by switching it up. Want to tune back into the music? Change the song. Want to taste the flavor again, try another flavor for awhile then revisit.

    Never noticed it with sounds, I think a better example would be with smells. Ever sit in a room or a house that smells really bad when you walk in, or smells like food? After a while the smell gets dulled out to your senses but when you leave for a bit and come back the smell is still there.

    That's how I look at it, this especially makes sense since taste and smell go hand in hand.

    Thanks all! I'm just sad because I love Gorilla juice so much. When I first started loosing the taste I thought my coil/wick went bad or something. Guess I'll have to set it aside for a bit to steep while I try my other AVE juices that recently came in.

    Good to see I'm not the only one with this "problem". I found a solution that works well for me is to vape something minty at work so that when I come home to my Cinnamon Rolls juice I haven't vaped anything that tastes even remotely like it all day. Works every time.

    I have only experienced this with BB and GJ. No other juice I have vaped loses its flavor this way. There is something about the chemistry of this juice, and I just dont believe it is caused by becoming desensitized, unless this condition is somehow specific to this juice, which again would be the result of the chemistry.

    The chemistry is very simple and follows the same recipe as other juices. We do tend to add more flavoring than most providers, this may exacerbate or quicken the issue.

    There is some testing I can do to monitor VG and PG differences, and additional or less flavoring. I'll give it a look but my "horse sense" is telling me that the recipes are simple enough that this isn't the case. However, I am always open to being wrong, hell, I thrive on learning. I will give it a good look. Drop me a help desk ticket on the website and I can give you updates on what I find.

    My wife will never get this with sounds either, she is hyper sensitive to sensory input (this is a very common occurrence today). One time a therapist put her on a bio-feedback machine, a machine that makes a sound to alert you when you get anxious or stressed. Well, the sound was stressing her out in the end, and this is actually where I started learning about this.

    It's fairly hard to eliminate annoying lights, smells, and sounds from every part of your house LOL... just think about it.

    Well no, that is not necessary. I am not complaining by any means, I just find it very interesting. Even when I am not tasting the juice, I still prefer it over any others. Actually I think you may have nailed it with the VG/PG ratio hypothesis. I do not know of any other juice out there that is 100%VG, that I have tried anyways. I hope that is not the case, because I absolutely the rich texture of VG. More importantly here, is that many people love this juice, and I wouldnt be so quick to make any drastic changes. My most recent order, which should arrive today has the flavor bump, I will report back how that goes.

    First rule: if you change the recipe, change the name. Always keep your recipes/names consistent. I would never drastically change a juice. I will alter the recipe and call it something else but the original will be there. If a juice is ever taken down it is only because getting the ingredients for the recipe is no longer possible/feasible.

    quick question, how come you can't select which flavors to give a flavor bump to when ordering? It just asks "would you like a flavor bump? but it doesn't ask for which flavors. Didn't see a comment section on the bottom of my order to specify either

    We originally had an editable text box... That didn't work out well...at all. We moved over to the "entire order" method because it is simpler to handle through every step and because it mirrors what 90% of the request were originally. This is only temporary, we are building the new site and individual bottle bumps will be available with the new site (about 30 days out)EDIT: 12/24/2012- As with all software development, the deadline was moved. We are now looking at February as the finish line for the new website.

    ok, well, since it was free shipping today I made one order without the flavor bump and one order to try the flavor bump, hope it doesn't cause any confusion, both orders shipping to the same address so feel free to bundle them up to save on shipping. order # 36609 and order # 36556 18ml bottles with the boost

    I was going to order a couple during my lunch (PST) but was closed already. Grats to those that made it in time for the discounts! :D

    Yep it happens all the time with Gorilla juice for me.
    Sometime switching to a new atty helps though.

    Nothing like GJ on a fresh atty

    At one time I had 3 (Zen mini, iHybrid & Provari/ZAP) filled with GJ. :D

    Oh, GJ on a fresh coil and charged batt is heaven!!! I could vape until the tank was empty. :)

    Its not isolated to just Bobas and GJ...Hype has been my all day vape since the first time I tried it. The very next day I ordered a 100ml bottle and order one every month now. I also order one or two sample juices from AVE with every bottle of Hype and found Craveloupe and Christys Cappucino that way.

    After a day or two I cant taste Hype anymore and rotate between those two juices until my taste buds come back.

    I got some Hype, Craveloupe, Christy's Capp, Bees Knees and Banana Slurry in my last order. Love fruitiness of the peach Hype gives off and melon hints of Craveloupe! For those who don't like their coffee too sweet then Christy's Capp is awesome. Bees Knees I have not had a chance yet. Since I'm having taste issues with GJ I decided to wait on the Banana for now. :)

    Oh, ya nothing beats Gorilla Juice or Boba's in an iHybrid. I actually have an iHybrid spider that has only seen Boba's.
