    High VG juice

    This may be the wrong spot to post this... although it applies (loosely) to DIY juice.

    I have an issue with PG. Gives me nasal problems, dry throat, headaches.

    My workaround is using anything up to 20% (generally 10%) saline to thin VG, then add my flavours and nicotine.

    Works OK... but does anyone else find that really high VG sits heavy in the chest after a day of vaping?

    Yeah i definitely find the
    extra high vg sits heavy on my chest. I pretty much don't do above 70% now although usually 60/70. Are you using saline. It has salt in in? Maybe some distilled water instead.

    Yeah... saline is made of distilled water and salt. It's supposed to help with carrying flavour in high VG. Distilled water tends to mute flavours, I found.

    I may need to go back to cutting with PG and stop sub ohm vaping... never had any real issues with PG until I went sub.
    But the flavours and clouds are much better < 1 😞

    I currently use about 7% distilled water (up form normal at about 4% due to the cold weather...more thinning to make my Lemo 2 work)...2 litres of distilled water for $1.60 from woolies/coles along with my 100% PG nic base and end up around 88% VG - unflavoured of course, so i dont notice any flavour muting shenanigans

    I only went high VG after several runs of bad PG supply

    I vape way less than most people (i have between 6-8 toots every hour or so) so i dont notice any heaviness

    I'm into my sweet tooth flavours, and have a horrible habit of chain vaping my desserts. It's all fun and games until the elephant sits on my chest...

    Yeah... I suppose every time I change something in my vape style there's an adjustment period. I'm sure my lungs will get used to the new "normal" - admittedly, I've made quite a few changes in the past couple of weeks.

    About two years now, on and off... with a few cigarette breaks. Solid vaping, no cigarettes, for about 5 - 6 months... started sub ohm about two months back.
