Hi… I’m new at mixing and I’m after throat Hit only. Made my first mix at 70 PG 30 VG and 6% Nic. Mixed, shaken, steeped. When I vape it doesn’t have the TH kick I’m looking for. It doesn’t even come close to say… Ecblends 7 leaf tobacco at 60% PG which I vape as MTL. My flavours are PG based and about 10%.
Can anyone help me with my TH quest?
Try your original mix @ 60pg 40vg
PG will add to throat hit / flavour
VG will give you more clouds
@Grubby He said he mixed it 70 PG, so I’m guessing that’s not the issue.
Check out the ELR resources page, Master Mixer’s Tips and Tricks. This is from there and one of these might help:
Adding Throat Hit
Most of us are suckers for a good punch in the back of the throat
Flavors known to add extra throat hit:
- Horchata by Capella
- Most cinnamon flavors
- Ecto Cooler
- Flavors that use capsaicin (the strong component of chilies).
- Menthols - See futher up.
- Some say that adding a bit of vodka to your mix will enhance TH.
His original mix was 70PG @Grubby
I find menthol gives a great throat hit.
Acidic Berries, Lemon, Mint and Menthol… Look for Menthol recipes on here with a lot of stars.
Thanks for all comments… I really thought as we all read that PG = TH.
Well I think it’s not 100% true. It’s a good carrier of flavor and great for viscosity.
I will have to try all the suggestions…
Thank you again
My 2 cents: try more nicotine. If that’s an option for you
Personally I find peppermints and methols and the like to completely cancel out throat hit… but maybe that’s just me
Ha Hahahaha when I see 70 & 30 I just automatically think VG PG.
reminds himself to slow down
Thanks @Naseschwarz and @Grubby.
I will try more Nicotine too. You might be right. The 7 leaf I use is 18mg
Well there ya go. While PG does influence the throat hit - it’s not near as much as 18mg of good ole St. Nic.
St. Nick…yep. You gotta wonder, right?
I can sell him a bunch of those. I’m notorious for watching TV in the dark and not noticing my tank go empty.(once the TV is on tanks are supposed to be self filling right?)
I’m so clumsy I HAVE to use vape bands, more the better as I’ve smashed so many tanks, so I run dry more often than not just because I can’t see the damn tank!..usually when I’m driving, the looks I get when I turn my face inside out after a dry hit whilst sat in traffic…
if your not into menthal or mints and what not, give peach a try. I find most peach flavors have quite a throat hit. here is a good recipe with a throat hit. i would use juicy peach by capella.

Don’t ever get a Delta tank then the damn thing is so hard to see the liquid in at my advanced age anyway.
