New people, welcome, because this one is for you.
Tips, tricks, and just all around good advice for you new guys just
These are things I wish I would have been told when I started.
And Veterans….you may just learn something too.
Something all of you need to understand about vaping is this, IT WILL DRY
YOUR MOUTH. Does for me and everyone I know who vapes atleast.
Well propylene glycol(PG) and vegetable glycerin(VG) are “hygroscopic”
which basically means the ability of a substance to attract water molecules
from the surrounding environment.
So even though it is water vapor, it pulls water from your mouth.
Why is this a big deal?
Well your vape wont taste as good, but more importantly what I have noticed
is this, if I don’t stay hydrated then my whole throat gets dry, which
sometimes can lead to a sore throat for days. And that isn’t good because
that is dry/cracked/irritated tissue that at that point can easily become
infected. (Highly unlikely, but still preventable)
And that’s about as sciencey as I am going to get.
But now that you know that, here are some things to help fight this
Try to always have these three items included in all your vape gear,
I always have at least 2 of them on me if not all three.
Item 1: ORBIT MIST
….yes the gum, it’s perfect for on the go cure for cotton mouth(dry
and a little more convenient than water bottles, but it still cant keep
your hydrated the same way water will.
Item 2. WATER
Gum can only do so much, water is important, cause again. water will keep
you hydrated, gum won’t.
and I find when I’m hydrated, my vape tastes better, plus that could
prevent any potential sore throats. So I usually carry one of those huge
thirst busters from Circle K.
Plus this has led me to cut back on my soda intake, which has lead to
shaving off some unwanted pounds (YAY)
Item 3: CHAPSTICK
Not much to say about this one…..
not just your tongue or your throat but your lips too will dry out.
I always carry a stick of Burt’s Bee’s with me.
I hope this helped some of you to continue to have a pleasant vaping
Have a good one guys.
