vapers tongue

What is vapers tongue and how can you prevent it?

vapers tongue

Are you one of those vapers who craves a specific e-liquid flavor? Have you ever been vaping that decadent essence and then suddenly you don’t really like it anymore? Maybe the robust, bold flavor isn’t as sharp as it used to be, or you start to feel a subtle numbness on the tip of your tongue? Well, if you can relate to this in any way, you may possess a condition called vapers tongue. Firstly, it’s important to understand that vapers tongue is not serious or permanent… it’s just annoying. That is why we’re going to explain what it is, how it’s caused and how you can prevent it in the future.

What is vapers tongue?

Vapers tongue is a term that is used to describe a condition where a vaper loses his/her ability to taste certain e-juice flavors. It covers a wide range of subtle, taste-related issues that can range from a person’s inability to taste a single flavor to the loss of their taste for certain foods and drinks. Typically, the condition can last one to three days, but has been known to persist up to two weeks. While vapers tongue doesn’t affect the nicotine absorption or vapor production, it does greatly affect the flavor experience for the vaper.

Why do some vapers experience vapers tongue?

Our tongues possess anywhere from 2,000 to 8,000 taste buds which are constantly developing and regenerating and our sense of taste relies on saliva to continue the process. Sometimes hardcore vapers dry mouth out their mouths by simply vaping too much and not being aware of their salivation levels.  

Another factor that contributes to vapers tongue is flavor fatigue. Your sense of smell and taste work together to create your own personal flavor perception. Most people have the ability to taste things that are sweet, bitter, sour, salty and umami (a category of taste that reflect broths and cooked meats). However, when you do not give your body a chance to experience an array of tastes with distinguishing characters, it can lose its ability to detect it.

Finally, smoking combustible cigarettes can also contribute to your onset of vapers tongue. If you’ve recently quit, your ability to taste and smell has been hindered and will require a bit of time to regenerate.

So, how do you prevent vapers tongue?

  • Drink more water: H2O with get your saliva pumping and keep your mouth from getting dry.
  • Cut back on your caffeine and alcohol consumption: These types of beverages tend to dehydrate your body.
  • Regularly clean your tongue: This may seem like a no brainer but brushing your tongue helps with your flavor palettes.
  • Quit smoking: It’s one of the best things you can do for your health.
  • Switch up your e-juices: Change up your flavors, mess around with your taste buds and enjoy all of aromas of vaping.
  • Take vaping breaks: Give your flavor and smell receptors a little break and take more time between your vaping sessions.

e-cigarette starter kit

A few beginner vape mistakes to avoid

e-cigarette starter kit

The internet has a wealth of information available to us, but it can be difficult to know where to look for reliable, unbiased advice. That being said, when it comes to e-cigarettes, there is never a lack of access to readable material, but there can be a shortage when it comes to factual data. So, that’s why we’ve crafted you a list of beginner vaping mistakes to avoid. That way you can Invest in a good quality device, properly maintain it and select the appropriate nicotine strength in order to enhance your vaping experience. Now, let’s get started.

How do you select a vaping device?

There are so many different e-cigarettes on the market and picking the best option for you can be a daunting task. We recommend selecting an e-cigarette that is simple and powerful but also possesses commanding reviews. Sometimes purchasing an e-cigarette starter kit is the best way to go because it includes everything you need when you start vaping — the device, a couple state-of-the-art batteries, a few flavor cartridges and a straightforward charging cable. Usually, an e-cigarette starter kit also possesses an easy-to-assemble technology, with disposable flavor capsules that twist onto your battery effortlessly. In the beginning, we recommend that you purchase pre-filled cartridges rather than filling your own device.

Why should you maintain your device?

The maintenance of your e-cigarette is pertinent in the longevity of the product. Although a relatively easy task, many vapers neglect their device maintenance and end up replacing it rather quickly. We suggest that as a first-time vaper you get in the habit of keeping your device clean. Wiping down the outer services is a good start, but in order to keep it operating in top condition, you will also need to wipe down the mouthpiece and the connection between your cartridge and your battery terminal.

Another way to ensure that your device is well maintained is by storing it safely away from any sunlight, extreme temperatures or potential water damage. An e-cigarette case is a functional way to store your gear and it also gives you the room that you need to store any extra flavor cartridges. Needless to say, it keeps everything in one easy-to-access arrangement. Keep e-cigarette maintenance a part of your daily routine and you’ll find that down the road you won’t have as many issues with your leading-edge technology.

How do you select a nicotine strength?

Many e-cigarette flavor cartridges or vapor juices give vapors the option of selecting a nicotine strength. This strength should be determined based on your combustible cigarette smoking habits. If you were once a heavy smoker, 2.4% nicotine strength and above should fulfill your nicotine craving, but if you were an occasional, lighter smoker than 1.2% nicotine strength would be a good fit for you. For people who are more addicted to the habitual feeling of having something in their hands, rather than the physical need for nicotine, most companies also offer a zero nicotine option. This would give you all the flavor and sensational aspects that you miss about smoking, without any added nicotine concentration.

We hope that this guide will help you as you set out on your vaping journey.

Vaping safety: The ultimate guide of do’s and don’ts

vaping safety

If you’re anything like us, an e-cigarette is a ritualistic aspect of your everyday life. Naturally, that means that understanding how to safely operate your vaping device should be equally as important as knowing the latest vaping technique trends. Just like any other electronic device that you own, if not used appropriately, an e-cig has the potential to malfunction. Needless to say, providing well-versed knowledge is one of our top priorities. Therefore, we have configured this list to help you learn a little more about how to continue your lifestyle, all while considering everyday vaping safety.

Only use your e-cigarette charger

It’s incredibly important to not interchange your original charger with a charger from another electronic accessory. The authentic charging cable that you were given with your device was designed to consider the voltage regulations and battery capacity of your particular e-cig. By swapping various chargers between your electronic devices, the charging capability of the cables can become greatly affected. It would be a major disappointment if your device died halfway through the day just because the charger you chose to use wasn’t able to provide enough power.

Inspect your batteries

Although incredibly rare and unlikely, studies have show that electronic cigarette explosions are almost always a result of the neglectful care of the devices battery.

We recommend that you regularly inspect your batteries to see if they are damaged, wet or have been overcharged. It’s also important to make sure that you aren’t mixing different brands of batteries, batteries with various charging capabilities, or any old and new batteries together. Be smart by ensuring that you are vaping safely with a high-quality battery that was built to be used by your state-of-the-art device.

Store your device

You will not only be able to protect your e-cig from extreme temperatures and prolonged sun exposure by investing in a sturdy storage case, but you will also keep your device clean when you keep it packed away in a drawer or cupboard. Keep in mind that a carrying case is a functional way to carry your device around, instead of unsafely storing it in the pocket of jeans or purse.  

Be aware of spillage

Many vaporizer brands sell e-liquid that is designed to be added to an electronic cigarette tank by the user. While this form of vaping possesses its own advantages, vapers do need to be careful when they fill their tanks in order to avoid spilling. As most e-liquid contains nicotine, children and pets have the potential to accidentally ingest the fluid, which can be incredibly fatal even in small doses.

Needless to say, an easy, safe alternative for parents and pet owners is to purchase pre-filled flavor cartridges for your device. They are packed with flavor, offered in various nicotine strengths and are easily interchanged.

How do I maintain and care for my e-cig kit?

e-cig maintenance

Just like many other electronic devices that you use, an electronic cigarette requires a little maintenance in order to keep it operating at its optimal capabilities. Lucky for you, these handy little devices are relatively easy to care for as long as you stick to a fairly fluid upkeeping schedule. A thorough cleaning from time-to-time, charging it properly and effectively using the smoking cessation tool will make e-cig maintenance just another part of your everyday routine.

Make sure it’s clean

Simply put, if you’re going to be using your e-cig on a frequent basis, it is best practice to keep it clean and ready-to-use at all times. Below explains the step-by-step cleaning process that will help you keep your device hygienic and economical.

  • In order to clean, dissemble your e-cig by twisting the battery off from the flavor cartridge.
  • Wipe down all the parts by using a damp cloth. This will clear away any dust and debris from the device.
  • Make sure your mouthpiece is clear of any residue.
  • Reassemble the device and begin vaping.
  • It’s important to make sure to routinely repeat the above steps to ensure that your device is always clean and well-maintained.

Make sure to keep it charged

Not only does full battery power give you the freedom to vape whenever you want, but it is also in your best interest to keep it charged to ensure the longevity of the device. As you vape throughout the day, keep an eye on the battery percentage remaining on your e-cig. You don’t want to completely drain its power prior to charging it, but you also don’t want to charge it every time it’s used. When there is about 25% power remaining on your e-cig, pop the battery onto your charger and remember to take it off as soon as it’s full. It’s also a good idea to charge more than one battery, that way when you drain the power from your first one, you’ll have a backup at all times.  

Make sure to properly care for it

E-cig maintenance is incredibly simple as long as you properly care for the device. We recommend that you store your e-cig in a protective case to ensure that it is safely packed away for when you need it. A case not only keeps it cleaner, but it will also allow it to remain less exposed to dust and residue that could potentially block the mouthpiece. It would be a shame if you broke your delicate device just because you didn’t want to invest in effective storage.

nicotine replacement therapy

Nicotine strengths: How to determine the appropriate choice for you

nicotine replacement therapy

Many people use electronic cigarettes as a nicotine replacement therapy, allowing them to choose their nicotine strength rather than it already being predetermined by the major tobacco companies. Needless to say, whether you vape for pure pleasure or as a means to control your nicotine intake, determining the appropriate nicotine strength you are using is probably one of the most important things you should know. Below are a few tips to help you differentiate between all the nicotine concentration levels available to you on the market.

What do we mean by nicotine strengths?

Just like how numerous cigarette brands possess variations of nicotine levels, e-juice capsules used for vaping also come in different nicotine strengths. Although both combustible cigarettes and e-cigarettes contain nicotine, e-cigs offer people more of a choice when it comes to selecting a desired level of nicotine concentration. This makes it easier for ex-smokers to take control of their bodies and wean themselves off of the addictive substance entirely.

How do you determine the nicotine strength you need?

In order to successfully use e-cigarettes as a nicotine replacement therapy, you will need to determine the appropriate nicotine strength that your body needs. Usually the perfect strength is determined by understanding and evaluating your prior smoking habits. Were you an occasional, light, moderate or heavy smoker? The nicotine strength that you start off with will be comparable to how many cigarettes that you were smoking daily. Ensuring that you have the right nicotine concentration in your e-juice will allow you meet the nicotine intake that you need, all while have the option to slowly decrease it over time. Many vapers successfully wean themselves down to zero nicotine e-juice over time.

Here is how we break it down:

  • 0mg/ml (zero nicotine) – good for people that are trying to cut out their nicotine dependency altogether. This is usually the strength people use over time.
  • 12 mg/ml (1.2% nicotine) – good for light to moderate ex-smokers, particularly those who used ‘light’ combustible cigarettes.
  • 24 mg/ml (2.4% nicotine) – good for moderate ex-smokers that are used to smoking about half a pack per day.
  • 36 mg/ml (3.6% nicotine) – good for heavy ex-smokers that are used to smoking a full pack a day or unfiltered cigarettes.

It’s important to understand that every vaper requires a different nicotine strength. We possess juices that contain zero nicotine all the way up to 36 mgs so that we can appeal to people who want to cut out nicotine completely and to those that need a little extra to help them stop smoking combustible cigarettes.

frequently asked questions about vaping

Two of the top FAQ by Prime Vapor Customers

frequently asked questions about vaping

E-cigarettes are still a relatively new technology that have the potential to aid as a nicotine replacement therapy, as well as a harm reduction strategy, when to compared to smoking cigarettes. Even though these devices can simulate a smoking experience, yet without the added chemicals that are inhaled when tobacco is lit, there are still a lot of questions that people often have when they are switching to vaping. As a leading manufacturing that takes pride in helping smokers make this life-changing transition, Prime Vapor is always delighted to answer our customers frequently asked questions about vaping. Here are a couple that we have decided to highlight based on your suggestions.

Question #1: Which e-cig starter kit is right for me?

You’ve done some research but since you are relatively new to the world of vaping you are still finding that the options are a bit overwhelming when it comes to which e-cig starters kit to get. As one of our most frequently asked questions about vaping, we want our customers to know that there is an abundance of possibilities that target current smokers, ex-smokers and non-smokers.

If you are currently smoking combustible cigarettes, but you’re wanting to switch to e-cigs as an alternative, then the best e-cig starter kit for you would probably be one that contains an e-juice that is offered with higher nicotine content. This will ensure that your vaping experience will be very comparable to your prior smoking experience. The best option for a smoker that is transitioning into vaping is the Tobacco E-Cigarette Starter Kit. It is known for its uncomplicated technology, juices that contain higher percentages of nicotine and also offer the same robust, tobacco flavoring that your body craves. This starter kit is also offered as a Menthol E-Cig Starter Kit.

On the other hand, if you are an ex-smoker or someone that enjoys the smooth experience that vaping offers, then the ideal e-cig starter kit for you would be one that allows you to take advantage of the diversity of flavors without any added nicotine content. Our Non-Nicotine E-Cigarette Starter Kit would work best in your situation, as it comes in delicious rather than traditional e-juice flavors that will give you all the sensation that you remember loving when you used to smoke.   

Question #2: How do Prime Vapor e-cigs work?

Now this a fair question to ask for someone that has never owned or operated an electronic cigarette. The best part about a Prime Vapor E-Cig is that our products are very simple to use because they consist of two interlocking parts that twist together. This simple, easy-to-use technology takes a top-of-the-line battery and screws it to a flavor cartridge. As seen below.

Once the two pieces are put together, the microprocessor-controlled battery will automatically heat the juice and all you have to do is inhale the vapor. It’s probably one of the most straightforward e-cigarettes on the market, when compared to others that require the user to empty e-liquid into a chamber between vape sessions. Once our flavor cartridge is empty, simply twist it off and replace it will a new one.
