So this is really weird. I had been dismissing it for a long time, but I think I got it isolated. So I always noticed that my vape is smoother at home, compared to work. Then I noticed that if I keep the vape in my drawer at the reception desk it is nice and smooth. But when I leave it in my office at the back of the clinic, every time, it is harsh. could this be some sort of air circulation continuum or something?
The places where you kept them that got harsh, does those places dark or flooded with light @DRG413 ? Just guessing here, because in my experience, when I forgot and put my juice that have nic in it under sunlight, it will get harsher after a few hours.
Hm. that actually sorta make sense. there is a window in my office and sunlight prolly comes through the blinds. but say I keep it there for half a day and then bring it to my desk, the next time I go outside, it’s smooth again. does that fit into your theory?
Heat can make a mix “thin”. I’ve experienced that, goes back to normal once it’s back to room temperature.
Do you think that being too cold could do that too? Happens in winter also.
Nothing definitive from me but if I were to speculate my money would be on environmental. I know direct sunlight can be detrimental to nicotine by oxidation but I’ve never experienced a harsh vape from it. Just the opposite in fact. Discolored but well steeped.
If you’re in a clinical environment maybe it’s something airborne. Is there any kind of unique ventilation system? Geezus I hope it’s not a TB clinic!
I tend to go out as little as possible in the winter so haven’t a clue. When the dog can talk me into a walk I have no problems vaping. Temps here in southern Illinois seldom get very low for more than a few days.
@DRG413 I don’t know the specifics of your different places, but I know my tanks that I run around with all day, and stay in vehicles quite a bit, ARE more oxidized than others that stay home in the AC. Not harsher per se, but I can see them darker, and they do thin in the heat.
Don’t rule out the very real possibility of Solar Proton Storms. The market in Cosmic Ray shielding devices has produced a number of affordable options for savvy and scientific vaping enthusiasts seeking protection:
I love Solar Proton Storms, they give an unbeatable mouth feel to my mixes
Strongly recommend consulting real-time Space Weather data sites before removing flavors and bases from Dome of Absolute Certainty. Muon Imaging may reveal “hot spots”, promising new vistas in readiness.
I would suggest that the difference between the 2 locations is ambient temperature - it sounds like the tank is not wicking fast enough when the juice is colder (as the juice is thicker).
That makes sense. I know that sometimes I will hit my vape and it will be somewhat harsh, but not throat hit harsh. Cotton harsh. I am always on the look out for a Throat hit from Hell and it can be difficult to tell the difference sometimes.
Uummm. I… just… don’t… know… what… to say to that.
