This was one of the 30mL bottles of salts I added to my last order, figuring the fruit-salad & ice combo would be a palette-cleanser from the creamy/dessert flavours I usually vape.
Upon wicking my RDA with fresh new cotton to clear out the Yogi Granola & Honey or Killar Custard I’d tried first I’ve dripped the dual coils up nice and drenched, set my power to 30W, hit the fire button and started sucking.
Not even 25% into filling my lungs, they crack the shits and I’m coughing my fuckin head off - coughing to the point my lungs started hurting and my head started pulsing.
Ever since then the same thing has been repeated though I’ve found that if I’m willing to put-up with spluttering my way through the first two hits, the proceeding ones aren’t so bad though there’s still no predicting whether any particular hit will trigger uncontrollable coughing again.
This wasn’t the nicotine strength either: by the time I’d tried vaping the Sorbet my tolerance had already adjusted to dripping 50mg and this was the only juice that gave me shit.
Felt like they’d used 50mg freebase nicotine instead of salt and this 30mL bottle has been just in the cupboard since - untouched.
Fast-forward to the present: I’m standing at my kitchen windowsill a little while ago mixing some custard in a 100mL bottle of plain VG so I can chuck it in cupboard to start steeping for whenever I get around to doing more with it and I decide I’ll dilute that shitty bottle of Sorbet down with glycerine while I’m there- the flavour itself is great you see, it’s just unvapable at full concentration straight out the bottle and not because of the 50mg/mL salts like I said - the other three 30mL bottles of salts (the afforementioned Killar Custard and Yogi Granola plus a bottle of lacklustre but perectly vapable Cuban Blend from Naked100) all went in smooth and fine without any issue.
So I cut this Pachamama Sorbet down from 50mg/mL to 20mg/mL with 100/0 VG/PG, and am shocked to find that not only is it now vapable, the flavour is incomparably better than it was undiluted…
Couple of days ago I used some of the Yogi Granola & Honey in my Maple Waffle, ice-cream & nuts DIY juice because it imparts a lovely, quiet note of honey to the maple (which I’ve had issues with because I couldn’t get the maple dominant no matter what % I tried, so was looking for other flavours to compliment and enrich said maple) which has had the desired result - the richer sweetness of the honey boosting the maple and the slightest hint of the granola adding a little more to the waffle roundness or whatever.
Anyone else find commercial salt juices are SO strongly flavoured you can actually use the juice itself as a flavour additive?
I mean I only added 1-2mL of the Yogi Granola to around ~60mL of the Maple Waffles juice I’ve been playing with and even at that low amount it managed to tint the DIY juice very effectively, and the sorbet - mixed down at 20mL Sorbet with 30mL Glycerine still tastes like fully flavoured juice - tastes like it probably should’ve undiluted @ 50mg…
Yeah, tastes great now: super fruity and sweet.
