10 Irresistible Flavored E-Liquid and Cocktail Combos

10 Irresistible Flavored Vape and Cocktail Combos

July 9, 2020

Ah, smoking and drinking — a duo as timeless as “singing and dancing,” “peanut butter and jelly,” or “Bieber and poor judgment.” Before most of us made the switch to e-cigarettes, the act of smoking went hand-in-hand with … well … whatever cocktail you chose. Which is a little limiting, when you really think about it.

Well, now it’s time to treat those rediscovered taste buds – you know what I mean if you’ve made the switch, amiright? – to some new “timeless duos” in the form of alcohol and nicotine (or nicotine-free, because we’ve got those too).

Vaping Mixology: Pairing Vape Flavors with Cocktails

With the flavorful world of vaping (for now), there is a wealth of flavor pairings just waiting to be enjoyed. So, we put the expert White Cloud staff — most of whom are avid vapers themselves — to work to find out what exciting new flavor combinations they’ve discovered, and which ones they can’t live without.

1. Atlantic Cut Tobacco with Hot Bourbon Apple Cider

Atlantic Cut Tobacco with Hot Bourbon Apple Cider

Ah Atlantic Cut, our sweet tobacco e-liquid flavor, proved to be a very popular suggestion – mostly due to its smooth, clean tobacco flavor. But, while most chose to pair Atlantic Cut with straight whiskeys (a perfectly acceptable and delicious suggestion) one team member took the concept further and paired it with a spirited bourbon/honey/cinnamon-based hot apple cider. Now that’s a mouthful (of deliciousness).

In this classically influenced combo, the sweet honey and hot cinnamon not only bring out the best in the bourbon, but also the apple and maple undertones of Atlantic Cut. If you’re planning on making your cider a “little Irish” this year, give this one a shot.

2. Menthol with a Berry Mojito

Menthol with a Berry Mojito

Just a foreword about this one: we’re headquartered in Florida. In other words, we sweat our fannies off for more than half the year. This means we have to find creative ways to stay cool during those scorching hot summer days.

Enter our menthol flavor paired with a berry mojito and you’ve got something berry refreshing (pun intended). This cool pair goes so well together the only way to describe it is “aaaah”.

To make a berry mojito, grab a tall glass and add about 8 fresh mint leaves, an ounce of simple syrup, some blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, and the juice of one lime. Muddle them all together, then fill with ice and add an ounce and a half of rum and a splash of lemon-lime soda. Sip in between puffs of our Menthol flavor and forget all about that heat index reaching three digits.

3. Espresso with Amaretto Liqueur

Espresso with Amaretto Liqueur

Espresso, our coffee flavored e-liquid, has a strong and loyal customer base – and with good reason. When we first created the flavor, we wanted to not only reunite nicotine and caffeine, but also satisfy the coffee aficionados that populate our offices (we’ve gone through 5 Keurig machines in the last 5 years – no lie).

Much like good Italian coffee, our Espresso seemed to pair best with similarly complex flavors — most notably, those found in a high-quality amaretto liqueur. While we’re not partial to any one specific brand, be sure to choose one that contains strong almond and fruit notes, along with hints of spice to counter the robust coffee vape.

If amaretto isn’t your cup of…spirits, then try pairing it with some Irish cream over ice or with a neat brandy. Hazelnut liqueur is also a good choice, or you can just go for some good ole bourbon.

And for a deliciously divine duo, add about an ounce of Patron XO Cafe Dark to a glass and top it off with half an ounce of Irish cream to create a “baby Guinness” – you’ll thank us later.

4. Cin with The Devil’s Advocate

Cin with The Devil’s Advocate

Ah, Cin and The Devil’s Advocate – sounds like the perfect pair, doesn’t it? Apple cinnamon-flavored anything is indeed a tasty treat, but an apple cinnamon-flavored cocktail paired with our fiery cinnamon e-liquid flavor known as Cin? Even better.

Aside from vape flavors, we’ve seen a lot of cinnamon-flavored items pop up in the market, including the cinnamon-flavored whisky known as Fireball. When you add that with equal parts Spiced Rum, Apple Schnapps and Lemon-Lime soda, you get “The Devil’s Advocate”, and when you take a sip followed by a puff of Cin, you’ll see why they were meant for each other.

More than any other combination on this list, it’s imperative that you enjoy these flavors in tandem, so be sure you’re in an environment that welcomes vapers. The effect just won’t be the same if you have to keep pausing for “smoke” breaks.

5. Zero K with a White Russian

Zero K with a White Russian

Over the years, we’ve noticed a resurgence in the number of heavy and rich, cream-based cocktails being served at bars (which is even more notable when you consider we’re based on the Gulf Coast of Florida). So, being the thorough social scientists we are, our team unanimously volunteered to revisit these drinks … in the name of research, of course.

White Russians – typically made from vodka, coffee liqueur and cream – are fairly uniform, flavor-wise. But, when counter-balanced with the sharp minty bite of our peppermint e-liquid flavor known as Zero K, the richness is quickly cut, making for a combination that isn’t common, but completely “works.”

By taking a few long puffs of Zero K, you brighten the thick and heavy flavor profile of the cocktail, while the peppermint takes on almost candy-like notes in parallel. Plus, doing so effectively cleanses your palate with each inhale, so neither your drink nor your vape ever become boring.

6. Cherry Black with a Spiked Root Beer Float

Cherry Black with a Spiked Root Beer Float

🎶 …Happy days are here to stay…🎶

Yeah, that’s the song we got stuck in our heads when we matched this seriously compatible couple. A White Cloud favorite, Cherry Black is our sweet and robust pipe tobacco flavor that can be enjoyed without a pipe, of course! It delivers the classic taste of flue-cured pipe tobacco with just a hint of cherry for a subtly sweet vaping experience.

To turn any day into a happy day, just grab a glass and add a shot (or two or three, we won’t judge) of vanilla vodka or rum, two to three scoops of vanilla ice cream (or more, again we won’t judge), and your favorite root beer, and enjoy some Cherry Black puffs between sips for the perfect marriage of bold and sweet.

7. Mango Tango with Mango Tango

Mango Tango with Mango Tango

How about a dance for a dance with this dynamic duo? We’re talking about our Mango Tango e-liquid with a Mango Tango cocktail. This combo is so perfect for each other, they even have the same name.

Now, we must say we created our authentic mango flavor long before another vape company came along (we don’t have to mention any names) and got caught selling to kids (thus nearly ruining flavored vaping for adults). Like all of our flavors, Mango Tango was created for adults, and we take our age verification process very seriously to ensure those are the only hands our products reach.

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s dance! Grab a glass with ice and add about an ounce of mango rum, 2 ounces of blue curacao, about 5 ounces of pineapple juice and garnish with a pineapple slice and a cherry (if desired). Pair it with our Mango Tango and watch feel those taste buds dance!

8. Vanilla with a Chocolate Martini

Vanilla with a Chocolate Martini

Enjoy the classics with this sweet, timeless duo. When finding the perfect soulmate for our vanilla flavored e-liquid our taste buds instinctively led us to chocolate. Vanilla and chocolate go together like peanut butter and jelly, only so much tastier!

Created to deliver the smooth flavor of vanilla bean, our vanilla e-cig flavor is dessert in a puff – and when you pair it with a decadent chocolate martini, you’ll feel like the classiest person in the room.

Just grab a cocktail shaker and add some ice with 2 ounces of vanilla vodka and an ounce and a half of chocolate liqueur, shake it up and strain into a martini glass. Take a sip, then a puff of vanilla and enjoy the sweet blend of these classic flavors.

For an extra special treat, try lining the rim of the glass with some powdered cocoa and adding some cherries. Mmm.

9. Muscat Blanc with a Cosmopolitan

Muscat Blanc with a Cosmopolitan

We created our Muscat Blanc flavor for the wine lovers out there (and us 🥂) – and we really think we hit the spot! The white grape flavor really stands out, and we swear we can feel those delightful bubbles of sparkling wine dancing on our tongues.

With such a classy flavor, we felt it deserved an equally classy cocktail, so we went for the cosmopolitan – and it did not disappoint! The two flavor profiles offer the perfect balance of sweet and tart – kinda like a woman, which makes this the perfect pair for a girls’ night out!

If you’ve never made a cosmopolitan, just add some ice to a shaker then pour in an ounce of vodka, half an ounce of triple sec, half an ounce of lime juice and half an ounce of cranberry juice. Take a sip and a puff of some Muscat Blanc and instantly feel fabulously modern.

10. Cavendish with an Old Fashioned

Cavendish with an Old Fashioned

Okay, so we didn’t have to get too creative with this one. Instead, we went for what we like to call an “old-fashioned couple”.
Known for its robust and aromatic flavor, cavendish is a form of pipe tobacco that has been enjoyed for centuries – dating as far back as the 1500s. Our modern-day version of Cavendish recreates the sweet and complex tones of the original, but without the pipe or smoke.

When thinking about what would go best with a modern-day classic, we decided to pair it with something, well…old – the old fashioned, that is. Both offer sweet and complex flavors that compliment each other perfectly.

To make an old fashioned, you just need a teaspoon or two of simple syrup, 3 dashes of bitters, 2 ounces of bourbon or whiskey, an orange peel and a cherry. Stir it together in a glass with a couple of large ice cubes, then take a sip and a puff to enjoy this old fashioned couple.

Bonus Combos: 3 More Flavor Duos to Try

Yeah, we couldn’t stop at 10 – and not because we’re lushes or anything 😜 – there are just too many vape/cocktail flavor duos to be discovered! So here are just a few more that just had to make the list.

Chocolate with Pinot Noir

Chocolate with Pinot Noir

Most everyone who tries our chocolate flavored e-liquid agrees they are pleasantly surprised by the deep cocoa notes. Rather than producing a sticky, candy-like chocolate taste profile (we’re all adults here), White Cloud flavor creators opted for a richer, dark chocolate experience with just a hint of bitterness, not unlike a high-end hot cocoa or strong cacao chocolate bar.

It’s not for everyone, admittedly. But, those who enjoy this flavor were nearly unanimous in thinking it pairs well with deep, rich red wines; most commonly, a good pinot noir. Just as chocolate-covered strawberries remain a popular indulgence the world around, a few puffs of our Chocolate not only pairs well with bold reds, but significantly enhances the deep red fruit flavors of the wines we sampled.

Whether your wine is built upon black cherries, raspberries, or even currants, you’ll likely find our complex Chocolate e-liquid flavor adds some dessert decadence to your regular glass of red.

Copper Kettle with Poison Apple

Copper Kettle with Poison Apple

Ah Copper Kettle – our controversial caramel vape flavor. Nailing down the complex profile of caramel to create a tasty e-cig flavor was a tough challenge. We were well-aware that other vape companies were already offering this flavor, but we were also well-aware that they were using a potentially dangerous ingredient.

We’re very proud and happy to say that we did nail down that caramel profile in our Copper Kettle flavor (and gave it a name only adults would get) – and we created it without that dangerous (when inhaled) ingredient known as diacetyl.

Now that you can rest assured there’s no dangerous chemicals in your Copper Kettle vape (unlike tobacco cigarettes), you can have no qualms about pairing it with a “Poison Apple” cocktail. Just grab a glass and add equal parts of vodka, Grand Marnier and apple cider to enjoy the sinfully sweet and irresistibly delicious taste of caramel apple – without breaking your teeth.

What a Melon with Gin and Tonic

What a Melon with Gin and Tonic

Another simple duo with some seriously refreshing flavor, our What a Melon flavor paired with gin and tonic makes for a great date to a picnic (even if you’re sitting at your desk).

When creating this summertime e-cig flavor, we wanted to capture the true taste of watermelon – without the seeds. No fake candy watermelon taste here – What a Melon is packed with so much flavor, it will leave you wondering how we managed to fit a huge watermelon into a tiny bottle. Oh and please note, no watermelons were harmed in the making of this flavor—except for two, but they received a proper memorial. We promise.

To really bring out that watermelon flavor, just grab a glass with ice and add 2 ounces of gin, 4 ounces of tonic water and a lime wedge and sip between each puff. Aaaaah, that’s the stuff.

A Final Word

When talking with our team, we received a metric ton of flavor pairing suggestions, so this list is FAR from complete (even with the bonuses). But hopefully it has a little something for everyone, from our wine drinkers to our tequila lovers. Now go forth and enjoy some vaping and drinking like the adult you are🥂

Nicotine Free Electronic Cigarette Options

The Best Nicotine-Free Vape Options from White Cloud

June 24, 2020

Since their introduction, electronic cigarettes have been used by many smokers as an alternative to smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. Despite the many opposing views on the potential health benefits of switching from smoking to vaping, research has suggested that more and more people have successfully kicked the habit with vaping, as opposed to the available nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) such as patches and gum. Many attribute this to how closely vaping resembles the act of smoking and the different nicotine options available with e-cigs – including zero-nicotine.

So What’s the Point of Nicotine-Free Vapes?

The majority of e-cigarettes on the market are available in varying nicotine strengths to allow e-cig users to fully customize their vaping experience – but why? This has never been an option with tobacco cigarettes, and most smokers don’t even know how much nicotine is in a cigarette or how much their bodies actually absorb per puff – not to mention how the nicotine might react with the hundreds of other chemicals added to cigarettes.

When you really think about it, though, not all smoking habits are the same. Some people smoke a pack or more a day while others may smoke only a few cigarettes a day. Then there are the social smokers who only smoke on occasion. With this wide range of smoking habits, it’s quite obvious that the need for nicotine differs greatly among smokers. But why offer nicotine-free vapes? For many, it’s used as a final stepping stone to quit their nicotine habit for good.

The Stepping Stones to Nicotine-Free

For those making the switch from smoking to vaping, some find a nicotine strength that suits them best and stick with it, while others use the varying nicotine strength options as stepping stones to slowly decrease their nicotine intake and eventually make their way down to nicotine-free. Those who make it down to zero-nicotine no longer want or need the stimulating effect of nicotine, but still enjoy the way it feels to inhale a satisfying puff of full-flavored vapor.

For many, the simple act of smoking is a huge part of their smoking habit as it becomes part of their everyday routine, from that morning cigarette with a cup of coffee to that after dinner must-have smoke. Vaping allows smokers to keep their routine, with or without the nicotine.

Nicotine vs Caffeine: What’s the Difference?

June 15, 2020

Nicotine gets a bad rap. Because it’s believed to be the addictive ingredient in tobacco cigarettes, and everyone knows that smoking kills millions every year, many people assume that nicotine is a dangerous substance. In extremely high doses, nicotine is indeed poisonous; however, in moderation, nicotine may be as benign as a cup of coffee. So just how different is nicotine vs caffeine?

Nicotine vs Caffeine: The Differences and Similarities

Nicotine has more in common with caffeine than the other chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes. For example, nicotine and caffeine are both alkaloids derived from plants that naturally stimulate dopamine production in the brain. Both chemicals are stimulants that act on the central nervous system, and they have positive effects when taken in small doses. The biggest difference between them is how they are consumed.
No one disputes that nicotine and caffeine can by addictive. People who regularly use either substance may experience withdrawal symptoms such as headaches and fatigue if they suddenly quit cold turkey. That said, research has shown that nicotine may not be as addictive as once believed – and it may even offer therapeutic benefits, too.

Nicotine vs Caffeine: Possible Therapeutic Benefits

More than half of Americans consume caffeine every day for a short term mood and attention boost. Others use it as an appetite suppressant, while some brave individuals consume caffeine rectally via coffee enemas to improve gut health.

Interestingly, caffeine and nicotine share a peculiar therapeutic benefit: Both substances have demonstrated potential for slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Pure nicotine, which can be extracted from tobacco leaves or synthetically produced, can also reduce anxiety and lower blood pressure. Aside from Alzheimer’s, nicotine could soon be used to treat neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease, ADHD and even Schizophrenia.

It should be noted that ingesting large quantities of caffeine or nicotine in their pure forms can be dangerous, which is why vapers should keep their e-liquids away from children and pets. Young people may be more prone to nicotine and caffeine addiction since their brains are still developing, so minors shouldn’t have access to either substance.

Vaping vs. Smoking: Nicotine Delivery

Some former smokers have taken up vaping as a substitute for tobacco use. E-cigarettes work by vaporizing a water-based liquid to closely mimic the act of smoking. Not all e-liquids contain nicotine, but most ex-smokers find that slowly weaning themselves off of nicotine makes the transition easier. For others, the physical act of vaping is enough to curb their tobacco cravings, so they prefer nicotine-free e-liquids.

One of the advantages of vaping over smoking is that vapers are in control of their nicotine intake. Smokers generally have no idea how much nicotine they are consuming. E-liquids typically tell you exactly how much nicotine they contain, and many brands offer various nicotine strengths. White Cloud, for instance, has six different nicotine strengths including a nicotine-free option.

Studies suggest that nicotine is not the sole or primary cause of smoking addiction. Although nicotine is addictive by itself, the other chemicals in tobacco cigarettes also play a role by increasing the efficiency of nicotine delivery. E-cigs, on the other hand, give vapers smaller and more consistent doses of nicotine.

Vaping vs. Smoking: The Potential Risks

Considering that vaping is 95 percent safer than smoking, medical professionals around the world are encouraging tobacco users to give e-cigs a try. Shirley Cramer, chief executive of the Royal Society for Public Health in the U.K., has called for a law requiring stores that sell tobacco to also carry vapor products. The RSPH also advocates calling e-cigs “vaporizers” or “nicotine sticks” to further distinguish them from tobacco products.

Vaping is in no way beneficial to your health, but it’s certainly safer than smoking, which is the world’s biggest preventable killer according to the World Health Organization. Unfortunately, anti-smoking campaigns and public health advertisements often conflate nicotine with tobacco use, which has led to the erroneous assumption that e-cigs are just as dangerous as traditional cigarettes.

Psychiatrist Mike Russell said it best four decades ago: “Smoke for the nicotine, but die from the tar.” Today, scientists are questioning whether or not nicotine addiction by itself is necessarily a bad thing. Many ex-smokers continue using nicotine patches and gums after beating their tobacco habit with no major health problems. Although more research is needed regarding the long term impact of vaping on the throat and lungs, we know for sure that nicotine isn’t the culprit behind smoking related illnesses.

Pair and Puff: The Most Satisfying Summertime E-Liquid Mixes

June 9, 2020

There are just a few more days until the unofficial start of summer! Here at the White Cloud HQ, we’re looking forward to spending our weekends at our beautiful beaches and parks, enjoying time spent outdoors under the Florida sun. While we’ve discussed what sorts of food and drinks we looked forward to most at holiday BBQs and parties, the team began throwing ideas around for some great e-liquid combinations to enjoy this summer.

White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes currently offers a variety of flavored e-liquids – 24 to be exact – all available 6 different nicotine strengths. There is a e-liquid flavor for every type of vapor, ranging from traditional tobacco flavors many ex-smokers crave, like our classic Regular Tobacco Flavor and our cool and refreshing Menthol Flavor, to a variety of more complex tobacco flavors, including Atlantic Cut and Cherry Black.

For vapers looking to add some new flavors to their e-liquid lineup, we even offer sweet and fruity dessert flavors, from our ever popular Cin and Vanilla flavors to What a Melon and Muscat Blanc. And if you opt for our bottled e-liquids and refillable tanks, the flavor options are endless! Just check out these refreshing summer mixes by the White Cloud team!

Summer E-Liquid Flavor “Mix-Ups”

From sweet and creamy to cool and refreshing, here are a few of our favorite e-liquid combos for beating that summer heat!

Cherry Cola

Cherry Cola E-Liquid Mix
Cherry Black (70%) + Vanilla (30%)

Soda, pop, cola – whatever you choose to call it, a frosty can or glass of cherry cola after a day in the hot sun always hits the spot. By combining Cherry Black e-liquid with Vanilla, we found a very familiar flavor that the entire office loved! Cherry Black’s robust tobacco blend and tart cherry aftertaste provides the “cola” kick that we know and love, and the Vanilla e-liquid gives the e-liquid mix the sweetness that will leave you reaching for your e-cig over and over again!

Flavor Mixing Tip: Drip flavors into your mini tank SLOWLY to prevent air bubbles from forming. Try to drip the flavors into the tank so they don’t touch the wicks.

Mango-jito

Mango-jito E-Liquid Mix
Mango Tango (80%) + Mint To Be (20%)

There are few beverages that are more synonymous with warm weather than the Mojito. Our White Cloud twist on the refreshing minty cocktail introduced one of our fruitiest flavors, Mango Tango, to add a sweet touch to the refreshing cool mint flavor of Mint To Be. Even if you’re just enjoying an evening in your backyard, the “Mango-jito” e-liquid mix will leave you feeling like you’ve been transported to the streets of Havana. Feel free to do a little tango as well!
Flavor Mixing Tip: When using a stronger flavor, such as Cin, Zero K, or Mint to Be, be sure to add it FIRST, as too much of these flavors can be overpowering.

Ice Melon

Ice Melon E-Liquid Mix
What A Melon (95%) + Zero K (5%)

One of the sure signs that summer is coming the excitement of hearing the familiar jingles playing from the neighborhood ice cream truck – even as adults. Whether you’re a rocket pop loyalist or prefer a snow cone, there aren’t many better treats to cool you off on a hot summer day. This Ice Melon flavor mix up brings us back to a childhood favorite, Watermelon Italian ice! Adding a small amount of Zero K, our “icy peppermint” e-liquid flavor, to What A Melon, a crowd favorite in our lineup of fruity e-liquids, creates a cool treat that you can vape all summer long. It’s the perfect e-liquid mix for hot days by the pool when you’re looking to cool down and get your nic-fix all at once.

Flavor Mixing Tip: Avoid AT ALL COSTS dripping e-liquid into the chimney, the small metal post in the center of the mini tank. If you hear bubbling when you take a draw, unscrew the tank and lighting cover the bottom end with a napkin and blow from the mouthpiece to clear the chimney.

Liquid Sunshine

Liquid Sunshine E-Liquid Mix
Bora Bora (80%) + Vanilla (20%)

“That’s so vanilla” is something you’ll never say after trying Liquid Sunshine, the crown jewel of our summertime vape flavors. As described by one team member, “It smells like my favorite brand of sunscreen, and it tastes like a tropical island!” We couldn’t have described it any better. This e-liquid mix starts with a base of Bora Bora, our exotic tobacco and spice e-liquid blend, is amplified when Vanilla e-liquid is combined in a mini-tank or mod device. Just close your eyes and take a puff to transport your senses to your favorite tropical island!

Flavor Mixing Tip: To get the best flavor out of your e-liquid mix, allow the liquids to steep for 20-30 minutes before vaping.

Orange Slush

Orange Slush E-Liquid Mix
orAngelic (95%) + Zero K (5%)

Frozen drinks are a staple of the summertime. Hot days and humid nights always lend themselves to a beverage with a little extra “chill” to it, so we created a mix of e-liquids to give the same effect when vaped. Being headquartered in Florida, oranges immediately came to mind, so we took our delicious orAngelic e-liquid, a sweet and creamy orange-flavored e-liquid, and paired it with just the right amount of /a>Zero K, our icy peppermint e-liquid, to create an e-liquid mix that is both cooling and satisfying, even when the heat is skyrocketing.
 

Bring on the Heat!

If you stock up on the e-liquids used to create these mixes now, you’ll be fully-prepared to take on the heat while treating your taste buds to some delicious flavors of summer! And if you want to learn more about White Cloud’s e-liquids and mini-tanks before trying them out, then check out these FAQs , or contact our stellar customer service team for some insider tips – we’re always happy to help you find that perfect vape!
 

Why Vaping May Lead to Throat Irritation

June 8, 2020

That little tingle in the back of your throat when you light up a tobacco cigarette is a feeling that many new vapers are expecting when taking their first puff of an e-cigarette. But a chronic sore throat can quickly suck the fun out of vaping

The Culprits Behind Throat Irritation From Vaping

When it comes to quitting smoking and making the switch to vaping, new users may experience throat irriation, among other temporary side effects. Here’s an overview of some of the culprits behind that sore throat you might experience with vaping.

The Smoker’s Flu: Both quitting tobacco cigarettes cold turkey and switching Clearing Your Lungs: The Smoker’s Flu to vaping may come with a range of side effects that can literally make you feel ill – and without having anything to do with vaping or influenza. Smoker’s flu is a collection of symptoms including sore throat, cough, headaches, insomnia and stomach issues, among others, which result from tobacco withdrawal. It’s essentially your body working hard to heal itself from the tar and other of all of the dangerous chemicals added to tobacco cigarettes. While it may make you feel miserable for a few days or even weeks, depending on how long you smoked, you’ll feel a lot better in the long run.

Nicotine Content: One of the great things about vaping is you can customize your nicotine strength to suit your needs. If you’re used to smoking a pack of regular tobacco cigarettes every day, the recommended starting nicotine strength for e-liquids is 2.4 percent. This level should give you a good “throat hit” while satiating your nicotine cravings. If you’re vaping excessively to get your nicotine fix, consider adjusting to a higher dose. If you’re used to smoking less than a pack per day, sticking with a lower nicotine strength can help alleviate throat irritation.

Related: Smoking vs. Vaping: How Much Nicotine is in a Cigarette?

Vaping Style: If you’re drawing on your e-cig with the same intensity as a vaping sore throat tobacco cigarette, a sore throat is almost inevitable. Along with thousands of dangerous chemicals, tobacco cigarettes are laced with anesthetics that ease the sting of inhaling an irritant. E-liquids lack these chemicals, which could be better for your health, but may also leave you with a sensitive throat.

When first starting out, the best way to vape is with the “mouth to lung” technique, which involves taking slow draws from your e-cig and holding the vapor in your mouth briefly before inhaling into your lungs to minimize throat irritation and prevent coughing. As you become more experienced with vaping, you can practice different techniques, such as the “direct to lung” method which involves inhaling the vapor directly into your lungs.

When developed by a reputable company, like White Cloud, e-liquid ingredients are rarely the root cause of a sore throat. However, e-liquid bases can play a part. The majority of e-liquids contain just a few components, including nicotine, flavoring, and an oil base. The most common bases are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerol (VG), or a combination of both.

In e-liquids, the main role of PG and VG is to lower the boiling point of liquid nicotine so it can be evaporated without the need for fire and combustion. However, each also serves a different role. The VG in an e-liquid is used to produce thicker vapor and bigger “clouds”, while PG is used to add the “throat hit” many smokers crave. Because both bases attract moisture, continuous vaping can cause your mouth to dry out, which in turn can lead to a sore throat. The best way to avoid this is staying well hydrated, so try making a habit of keeping water nearby every time you vape.

While some brands use either one or the other, White Cloud combines both PG and VG to offer the perfect ratio of throat hit and vapor production. Through extensive testing, we’ve found that our 70/30 PG to VG ratio produces the best balance of flavor and vapor while minimizing discomfort. The combination of our unique blend with the above advice should give you a pleasurable, pain-free vaping experience.
