What is Throat Hit?
You know it when you feel it! Throat hit is the sensation in the throat caused by nicotine as it’s inhaled.
It ranges from a smooth satisfying catch as the vapor travels down the throat to an intolerable harshness. Smokers who’ve tried to inhale a cigar will know the sensation at its worst.
Vapers seek a throat hit that suits them. For some it’s practically non-existent, for others it’s very pronounced. It’s very much a personal preference.
How do I get less throat hit?
You have two options. One, you use a lower nicotine concentration liquid. If you do this, you may wish to use a higher powered device so that you’re still getting similar quantities of nicotine overall (see power and nicotine explained). The sensation will be much less pronounced.
The other option is to use an eliquid with a higher PH. The flavorings added to the liquid will change the overall PH – a high PH liquid is what you’re after, so you may find citric flavors do the trick.
