    I am still looking for that elusive throat hit. So far I have tried Nic from My Freedom Smokes, XtremeVapes, Madvapes and Wizard Labs with varying degrees of TH. I hear Vaping Zone and EcigXpress have good liquids. Anyone know which one hits harder, or am i simply going on a wild goose chase ...

    I think most matters on coil placement(if you do RBA's) and some goes to pg throat hit and vg clouds of smoke.

    If a nicotine base liquid contains the ingredients you'd expect it to contain (PG and/or VG plus nicotine) then there should be no difference between them.

    In the later months of the year of 2013, we now have a more complete picture of what contributes to Throat Hit, aka TH.

    When I first came to this forum, and asked my peers what contributed to throat hit, I usually got the same answer 100 times. "Nothing contributes to throat hit more than the MG level of your nicotine juice. The more nicotine, the harsher the throat hit"

    Over time, the answers evolved. We now know that nicotine is the main ingredient to a good throat hit... We also know that VG juice dampens throat hit considerably. VG vapor is thicker, but also cooler and PG throat hit can be very harsh on the throat. Especially if your using PURE 100% PG nicotine juice. While PG can increase throat hit and upper respiratory irritation, VG can contribute to a heavy chest feeling. But nicotine and PG/VG ratios are not the only things we've learned about TH over the years. We now know that some flavorings dampen throat hit. Some of the worst culprits are flavorings that contain a sour ingredient. The sour ingredient can completely kill throat hit for some reason. We also learned that acidic flavored juices can change the throat hit. Juices such as Orange, and Tangerine, and Lemonaid, can alter the throat hit in a way that makes it feel more spongey. The sour flavoring also does this.

    From the beginning, we've been told that we could add a drop or two (give or take a couple drops) of pure grain alcohol per 15ml bottle of e-juice to increase throat hit without disrupting the integrity of the PG/VG and nicotine molecules. We've learned that some people like the addition of capsaicin, the agent in hot peppers that creates the heat. (some find capsaicin to be a type of TH that they aren't searching for, reporting that they prefer a quick BITE, rather than a lasting burn) Some prefer to go the original routs, opting for menthols or cinnamons to increase TH. Cinnamons can also create that lasting burn, in addition to the quick bite. (vaping too much PG does this)

    But the most recent discovery in my opinion, came out of the recent introduction of top coil, bottom coil, and of course, rebuildable atomizing heads. We learned that vivi novas delivered a great throat hit, filling your mouth with warm vapor at almost most common wattages. We learned that Kanger Bottom Coil Clearomizers, AKA BCCs, delivered less throat hit, and a cooler vapor to the mouth. & it was a forum member by the name of SuperXDrifter that showed me the light when it came to rebuilding--- Commenting that I could alter the throat hit of my rebuildable dripping atomizer by both placing the coil portion of my wick either A. away from the air hole, or B. closer to the top of the RDA. So we learned that coil placement in relation to how much air it received and how fast the vapor travels from the atomizer to your throat also play a large role in TH.

    I'm hoping that we learn more about TH as we enter 2014. I'd really like for a vape juice company to find a good harmless chemical that increases throat hit by the drop. That would be great. I can't believe no one chemical has been introduced onto the market yet. It would mean that we could taper down our nicotine milligram amounts while keeping our beloved throat hit.

    I vape 12 mg from RTS Vapes and use only 100 %VG and get decent TH,maybe TH is subjective also.

    TH can be effected by moisture in your body too. If your dehydrated your throat will develop an irritation and you'll have harsher throat hit.

    I too was searching for that TH but with zero nicotine. Found something that works for me. It's a little pricey because it's in the UK and is the Herbal eliquid from

    If there is anything in the U.S. that is equal to or better than this with zero nicotine, I would sure appreciate hearing about it, simply to save some money. But for the result, this is tops.
