I’m wondering if anyone can shed some light on this.
Basically I’ve tried loads of different 7.2mg nicotines from various places in the UK and most give me a really uncomfortable ‘heavy lung ache’ (for want of a better description) the next day - much like smoking far too much when I smoked.
It doesn’t happened with all nic, but when i’ve purchased a different batch from the same supplier it can be rough again, so its very hit and miss. I’ve also had nic thats from perfectly clear to bright pink, and although some has been really harsh, it doesn’t really follow that it will give me the feeling in my lungs or not.
Its not the harshness, I can deal with that, but something somewhere seems to disagree with me. Could it be an industrial thinner maybe? Or something else? I have tried both PG and VG based nic with the same result.
I do seem to have an intolerance to TPA’s Strawberry (ripe) and Juicy Peach which give me the same-ish symptoms, are there any common ingredients between those and Nic?
I always spend a day tooting any new nic I get in a 60/40 VG/PG unflavoured mix when I get it, but I never really know if its going to affect me or not until the next day. I’ve dropped to 3mg nic in juice - from 18 - which is a good thing, but it hasn’t really make much difference for this particular problem, I still get the same amount of lung ache however much i puff. Weird eh?
Strangely, I’ve never had any problems with any shop bought e-juice which makes me think its some sort of cheap chemical used it the processing somewhere.
I could list all the places I’ve bought from, but I’m in the UK so I don’t really want to name and shame in this era of TPD. Suffice to say, most places have been mentioned here and other forums (and highly recommended) so I think its me rather than everyone having bad nic.
Any help anyone can give would be most appreciated.
Edit: I’m not PG intolerant, I happily vape when the nic is OK
