    hiya, guys.i never taste vape much, so i use 30% flavors.
    but if i mess up i add n add flavor til it'ws fixed.
    by the time i'm done, i end up with 40% flavors or more.
    is this a problem?

    I'd say not as long as it works for you and you don't have a pg allergy.

    food is great, better since i stopped tobacco.
    i can taste over sweetness tho.
    commercial juice is all too sweet.
    some is disgusting, so i taste bad stuff.

    i'm very jealous of you guys that can taste all these neat flavors you talk about.

    What coils you running? They make or break flavor as well.

    i have found that if i tip the mod "bottoms up" sorta, it makes a flavor difference. like taking a swig off a 1/2 full 1/2 pt whisky bottle .
    it points the vapor more at my buds.

    Not all flavorings are PG Based as I buy many VGD or VG Dominant Flavors because I do not particularly care for PG.

    It takes time but your taste buds will probably improve. I've been vaping 3 years now and my ability to distinguish flavors has improved dramatically. Just in the last week I vaped a strawberry banana recipe I put together and for the first time I really tasted strawberry. I've been chasing that for 3 years now. In fact, just about every thing I've mix in the last 6 months tastes good (granted, I've narrowed down my known liked flavors to about 65 of them...that helps a lot). Keep at it, you'll get there.

    Just a tiny bit off topic. Very frequently I Vape unflavored juice that I mix up myself. 70 VG - 30 PG at about 4.5 per mil nic. All an approximate ratios. But I find that it tastes very nice. I get a sweet peppery ish flavor. No not really peppery but IDK difficult to describe. I do this when I'm feeling lazy and I am out of juice 4 if I am having vapers tongue issues. Once I got jammed up in Vaped just VG with 10% distilled water. And that actually tasted very nice almost flowery.

    when nicotine starts to oxidize it delivers a peppery flavor, the sweet maybe the VG.

    thanks, guys/
    i vape ,25 drop ins.
    i never tried anything but regulated mods.
    you know. even if i vape 50/50 unflavored, it's kinda sweet.
    i wish i could find something less sweet.
    i'd like to taste flavors, not sugar.

    it's been 8 months now n i keep hoping things will change.
    it takes 3 years?
    ok, i'll keep trying.

    Your taste buds change every 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months and 3 yrs..
    by the time 3 yrs rolls around, you are no longer the person you were back then..
    you can only keep trying.

    there is a lot that damages taste buds..

    things like diet, meds, drinking, smoking, even illness.

    Sometimes taste buds come back, others no.. they are just dead.
    but you wont know unless you keep trying.

    What are some of the flavors you use, if you don't mind me asking? Like cinnamon, custard, strawberry, etc...? Are they premixed concentrates that you just add to vg/pg base?

    I figure any that are harmful will make themselves known in obvious ways, like how most raspberry flavors give me a wicked sore throat - and one brand of Bavarian cream, still haven't figured out what's in that one. It's a certain kind of acid in the raspberries I think - but if it doesn't cause symptoms, it's probably okay (in my opinion)

    You also want to make sure you are drinking plenty of... water. :)
    If you are dehydrated, it can mess up your taste buds too.. you need to stay hydrated.
