    As y'all know, I'm a zero nic vaper because I quit smoking nearly 5 years ago now. I purchased some juice from a small but reputable vendor that was labeled as 0 nic but I'm 95% sure it has nic in it. I say that because I have tried maybe 15 different 0 nic juices in the last six months, and this is the only one with any significant throat hit. I vaped on it a bit last night and it did not give me a nicotine buzz or anything like that, but I am very concerned that this could happen. I have been nicotine free for a long time and the last thing I want is to get nic cravings again. I'll be writing the vendor today, but what can they say?

    They can say that there is no nicotine in the juice... Throat Hit is not just from nic. PG and other ingredients, as well as your vaper temperature all can cause TH..

    Only way to prove that there is nic in your 0 nic juice is to test it.

    What is the flavor? Could it be a flavor which irritates the throat, accompanied with a high PG ratio? Some of the smaller vendors have very little experience with the 0nic vaper. And, as others who stay at 3mg say, they like the throat hit they get on very tiny amounts of nic. It all turns on whether you like or want throat hit. I wouldn't be terribly upset with them if there had been a mistake. It is not like we go into anaphylactic shock with the least contact with nic.

    It is coconut. I also purchased juicy peach from them and english toffee and there is no throat hit to either. The only other time I experienced a kick in the lungs similar to this is vaping fire and ice with lots of cinnamon in it. I have tried a half puff on nic juice people sent me to give away to others, I'm really quite certain it has nic in it. Yes it is not like poisoning someone, but to me there is a huge difference between sending someone 18mg when they ordered 12mg, to 12 when they ordered 0. I'm making it sound like it is a bigger deal to me than it is, but I really do want to never vape nic.

    I've vaped zero nic juice for over two years now but sometimes I do enjoy some low level nic (3-6 mg) in some juices. At vape meets I will occasionally try a new flavor with over 6 mg in it but I can only tolerate a few vapes before I have to stop because of the nic high I feel. If you've been vaping only zero for a while and don't feel the effects of nic in the juice other then some throat hit its likely IF there is any nic in that juice its less then 6 mg. There are some zero nic juices I've had that do give me a slight throat hit even without any nic in them.

    We're all different, but for me occasionally using some nic in my juice has no effect on hooking me on nicotine again. Normally its only occasionally I have some nic in my juice but a few months back I realized I'd been vaping more nic then usually while using up some juice I had around the house with nic in it (6 mg juice) and while I didnt feel like I was hooked on nic again wondered what effect if any it had vaping some every day for 2 weeks so I made sure I used no nic for the next week and there were NO signs what-so-ever that I was again addicted to nicotine.

    You can send it to a lab and pay for testing, if it does have nic, show the results to the vendor, correspond with the vendor to get a refund or exchange, then ship it back to the vendor. OR just Dont vape it , throw it away and buy from a different vendor. What do you want people to tell you?

    Good to hear it Unhooked. I have been vaping below 8 mg nic for over half a year now and have not experienced any kind of TH through that time.

    So my replacement bottle arrived, but it had $1.19 postage due. I mean, how many bottles do they send out, you would think they'd know how much postage to put on the thing.
