    I keep seeing all these threads about the dreaded vapers tongue. I am familiar with the concept. What puzzles me is this... I haven't experienced it a single time since I switched to gennies and mesh wicks. That's almost two years of no vapers tongue. I remember getting it all the time with i.e clearomizers like the Vivi Nova and CE4.

    Anyone of you ever got vapers tongue with mesh wicks?

    Can you define what you mean by vapers tongue? Is this the experience of getting less and less flavor the more you vape in a period of time?

    Yep when your tongue goes sort of numb to all kinds of (vaped) flavor. And stays that way for a day or two.

    I've never had it last for that long of a period, and my tongue always seems to wake back up if I switch flavors, but yes I think i experience this to some extent.

    Most days I'll use a single flavor all day at work, and I definitely notice that as the day goes on (and especially on the drive home when I more or less chain vape) that the flavor starts to fade and often becomes kind of "one note". My most flavorful vape of the day is always my ride to work in the morning.

    The two factors that play a huge part in this for me (I think) are mouth hydration and taste buds getting overwhelmed. Though now that I'm thinking about it taste buds getting overwhelmed after chain vaping could really just be a mouth hydration issue as well since vapor tends to dry the mouth out.

    I notice a huge difference in flavor when vaping a lot in a short period of time if I make sure to take a couple sips of water or iced tea in between puffs.

    Good points! I'm not as much trying to promote mesh wicks as I'm trying to figure it out. Whether it's related to wick material or not. Maybe I have to dig up some old silica or ekowool. :D

    The experiences I've had could not be cured with water. Maybe it would help if I had sipped water while vaping.

    Prior to switching to gennies full time I used cartotanks for the most part.

    Can't say that I can recall the frequency of getting a numb tongue being that much higher or lower since switching, however the flavor in general is much more intense on a genesis so maybe that helps compensate?

    Might be.

    I may well be barking up the wrong tree. Just trying to make sense of why I never suffer vapers tongue when there's so much talk about it. I thought wicking material and/or wicking efficiency might play a part... but I'm certainly not drawing any conclusions. Yet at least.

    Usually vt was associated with newer vapors still waiting for the body to fully adjust I don't remember too many seasoned vapors dealing with it

    Ah! Maybe that's all there is to it. Fits well with my experience, at least.

    I never bought into it. If you throw anything at your senses for extended periods, they'll desensitize - that's why wine tasters use palate cleansers, and why you'll find a bowl of coffee beans at a perfume/cologne counter.
