    Hi forum, new guy here:

    I started vaping probably 6 weeks ago when my friend gave me his old vape and filled me up with some 6mg juice. I didn’t mind 6mg on that particular mod. As a Christmas present, I received a SMOK 220W and really like it, except I’m using 3mg juice now and feel a much stronger and less pleasant buzz than I ever would with 6mg on my old vape.

    I’m running about the same wattage on both, and I can’t think of a reason I would be experiencing such an unpleasant buzz on 3mg with this new one.

    The old 6mg juice was 30PG/70VG, and the new 3mg is 50/50. Could that have something to do with it?

    Any advice or comment are welcome and appreciated.
    Thanks.

    What was the old tank specs? Same with the new one's, unless you're using the Alien 220 kit, which would be the baby beast if I'm not mistaken. Your old one was probably a MTL device, nicotine doesn't hit as hard on those. If you do indeed have the baby or big baby, that is a sub ohm DL Atty, nicotine hits a lot harder with that, also the higher your PG content the more throat hit. Sorry best I can with what we know right now.

    P.S were you a smoker? If you weren't I wouldn't recommend nicotine, just my two cents.

    EDIT Oh and where are my manners? Welcome to VU happy ta have ya

    Yeah I'm experiencing the same a hell of a buzz with my new mod and tank.

    I'm currently using the last of my 9mg strength, already have 6mg ready to go. So with my daytime mod I vary between 0.5 or 0.3 ohm coils and vape between 40-55 watts. But my new mod for evenings relaxing at home I've started at 90 watts with 0.17 ohm coils and its a lot warmer but not unpleasent for me but jeez the nicotine hit is woooooooah.

    Already looking forward to the 6mg juice lol.

    Is the new juice you are using made from Nicotine salts which would explain it? What is the MFG, and name of juice?

    You are using 50/50 juice and it might not agree with you.
    PG makes me feel weird and might be doing with you too.
    Try some 70/30 again.

    You might want to reduce your power, which will lessen the vapor which lesses the nicotine you get per puff. Also 50/50 is rather harsh for something like baby beast and larger coil atomizers. Remember.. more cloud carries more nic. PG is an irritant, so you will probably find your vape a bit harsh. (pg is what gives the throat hit). Personally, I use 20/80 but Im past needing the throat hit I got from cigarettes.

    Same here higher PG and high flavor percents seem to give me headaches / make me feel off. When I first noticed it I thought it was the nic.

    I used to have to go lie down cos sends me all dizzy. I use 100% VG sometimes.
    My RTA'S wick it no problem and I don't feel I'm losing flavour. The PG is supposed to carry flavour but I never feel a flavour drop to be honest :)

    I had the exact same problem, I quit smoking about 4 months ago using an aspire pen ecig with no nic, but during nights of drinks with friends i had the urge to smoke so I bought the smok pro clour with big baby beast and started with 6mg cosmic fog brand ejuice at 70vg 30pg, using a .4 ohm coil at 55 to 65 W. First puff nearly decked me so i got the same flavour without any nicotine and mixed it 50/50 to dilute the nicotine and went from there, now i use 3mg for a really pleasent, smooth vape. I do suggest using a higher vg juice for smoothness, people say pg is better for flavour which it may be but if you get a quality brand like Cosmic Fog or Cuttwood juice the flavour is great. Ive been vaping for 3 months and ive finally nailed my preference, so stick with it and play around with different things (coils, watts, juice, nicotine) and you'll find your sweet spot i promise! Hope this helps!
