Throat hits are loved by some vapers and hated by others. Many prefer to enjoy the flavor over getting a throat hit while other see a throat hit as something that all vapers need to try at least once. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying that it’s a fixture in the vaping community.
Not sure what a throat hit is? A throat hit essentially means that the vapor ‘hits’ the back of your throat. It will feel similar to smoking a cigarette in the sense that it can potentially irritate your throat and cause you to cough. Some vapers have mastered the art of the gentle throat hit. This is when you let the vapor go down your throat, but it goes down smoothly and without irritating. Other vapers consider this form of smoking to be weak, while some stick by their weaker e-cigs. It’s all down to personal preference and how much your throat can handle.
If you want to get a strong throat hit, your eliquid should contain a lot of nicotine. Cigarettes give throat hits because of their high nicotine content, so logically an e-cigarette will also give a better throat hit with more nicotine. The temperature also makes a difference. The higher the temperature of the hit, the more of a throat hit it will be.
The flavor of your eliquid can also play a large role in how much of a throat hit you get. Menthol liquids are best for strong hits, but citrus flavored liquids are also known to give punchy throat hits. Experiment and see what works for you. You should also use a hemp wick instead of a cotton wick when trying to get a throat hit. Hemp will deliver a lot more punch.
