    I usually order my juice from one place and recently ran out. Normally I don't run out but was anticipating a decent memorial day sale so I waited. In the meantime I resorted to going to the vape shop near my work so I could waste $30 on a bottle of juice I'm sure to hate. The array of choices was dizzying as always so I bought what the 19 year old neckbeard recommended. It's the same juice that's recommended by all the neckbeards in shops and online, "The one" by beard vapes. For all intents and purposes, this is a bottle of sweetener with some flavoring and VG; absolute shit without recognizable flavor, just hot sweetness.

    The worst part about the juice is how filthy it is. I've had gunky juice before but this is ridiculous. One 7mm squonk bottle and its time for a dry burn / cotton change. Anymore than that and the gunk which rapidly forms on the coils burns and taste awful. It's so bad, it literally eats through the center of the cotton. The juice is clear but turns my cotton red after a few vapes. The main reason why I stick with the one brand is how clean it is. I can go a weeks without having to change cotton and clean coils if I wanted to.

    So this bottle of shit juice got me thinking; what kind of by product is the burning gunk creating that I was inhaling? Has anyone ever studied the gunk and how harmful it is? I was using an RDA, I imagine its much worse in a premade coil. Moral of the story, until I start making my own, I won't be buying anymore store juice.

    Coil gunk usually comes from alot sweetener...I doubt its some secret toxic ingredient in the juice.

    Any juice I've ever bought was always sweeter than what i make and they always gunk up my coils.

    Yeah I know it’s just the sweetener but I wonder how safe it is to be vaping the sweetener that gunks in the coils.
