About the Throat Hit

So what is a throat hit? A throat hit is the sensation that you will feel when you are taking a puff on your electronic cigarette. The sensation is in the back of your throat and in your lungs created by the nicotine when you inhale. To those who are new to the world of e-cigarette smoking, a throat hit is actually a mild irritation, but to long-term smokers, this is something that they are already accustomed to and are always looking for.

So if you enjoy this sensation, it is highly possible that you will not get the throat hit that you so want and expect when you purchase an e-liquid that contains a lower level of nicotine concentration.

Levels of Nicotine Concentration for the Best Throat Hit

E-liquids that contain low levels of nicotine may not provide you with the throat hit that you are expecting. So what are the levels of nicotine should you get in order for you to have the best throat hit experience? While the answers may vary depending on your personal preference and your smoking requirements, here are some of what we recommend:

Nicotine Range of 0-6mg – If you are a light smoker or a weekend smoker, we recommending this level of nicotine.

Nicotine Range of 6-10mg – This level will provide you with the mild throat hit. Similar to an ultra light regular cigarette.

Nicotine Range of 10 -14mg – This level of nicotine is ideal for you if you like something more than what the 6-10mg. Similar to a light cigarette.

Nicotine Range of 14-18mg - If you are a solid smoker, this level of throat hit will satisfy you. Similar to a full cigarette.

Nicotine Range of 18-24mg and above – If you are a heavy smoker, anything less than a nicotine range of 18-24mg will not satisfy your smoking cravings.

1-10 cigarettes per day ~ 0-6mg

11-20 cigarettes per day ~ 6-12mg

21-50 cigarettes per day ~ 14-18mg

51+ cigarettes per day ~ 18-24mg

Factors that Determine the Quality of a Throat Hit

It is also important to understand that there are several factors that can affect the quality of the throat hit that you will experience every time that you take a puff on your electronic cigarette. It is wise to learn all about these factors in order for you to make your smoking experience better and more enjoyable.

The quality of the E-Liquid - This is the most important factor, since the quality of the e-liquid will greatly affect how strong the throat hit you will experience.

The Nicotine Dosage in the E-Liquid - This is already given, and as mentioned above, the higher the nicotine dosage is, the stronger the throat hit will be.

The Condition of the Electronic Cigarette and Its Parts – The condition of your electronic cigarette and all of its components also play a significant role in how weak or strong the throat hit will be. This is why it is important that you take good care of your e-cigarette if you want to always be able to enjoy the perfect throat hit. This includes replacing the coil at the proper time and charging the batteries correctly.

The Technique of Smoking - Smoking electronic cigarettes is different from smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. It may take you some time to learn the best technique of smoking your e-cigarette, but you should be patient, as this is also a factor that influences the quality of throat hit you will get.
