    Does this happen to anyone else ??

    I had bought some ejuice about a month ago and although I like the flavor .... I haven't really touched it because it's a higher pg that what I make ( it's 70pg/30vg.) what I make is 50/50 or 40pg/60vg.
    Well ... I'm not sure if it's the higher pg ... But it's making me feel sick to my tummy and the time if my voice has dropped ( like I'm losing it)
    Am I the only one ?? Has this happen to anyone else ???

    Sounds like it's the PG if you get sick. I have the same reaction, which sucks because i bought practically the entire line of Flavorcrafters tobaccos at 70/30. Even when i cut them 1 to 1 with VG i still can't vape them and cutting them more than that the flavor gets lost. You're not allergic but you have PG sensitivity - I feel yer pain.

    @BXfan so what does that mean ? Sensitive ? Just stay away or becareful how much I consume ?? I have added more vg to it but even that kinda turns my tummy .... And it's funny because I'll be suckin on my DIY juice and not bat an eye then switch over and on the second puff my stomach starts rolling .,.. It'll stay like that for about 10 min ..... And if I keep puffin it I feel sicker and sicker ( I know .... But I had to find out ) so needles to say ... I've cleaned the wicks and tank and put the bottle in the do not touch pile and I'll pass it on to someone else who might enjoy it

    Yeah what BXfan says. I myself and pG sensitive so I have abottle of VG and I "water" it down as required.. I usually run 80vg/20pg and im ok with that. It does kill the flavor so some outfits can give you a 'flavor shot' or you can order from some places that do vg based juices.

    @Anonymous , I'm a DIYer and my mixes at 70vg/30pg and I usually have to double the flavoring I use and let it sit and steep for a month ( make a lot in advance) I used to have no problems with the higher pg ... So it would seem to have happen over a months time .... Can that happen?? Be fine and then not ???

    Yup be careful is all. For me 60-70%PG and i'm sick right away. 40-50%PG and it's a cumulative effect for getting sick but i quickly get problems like dry lips and nasal problems as PG dehydrates. Some lit i've read suggests it's not that common, but there are quite a few people on Wacked Out who are either PG sensitive or allergic.

    The effects of PG actually killed my first attempt at switching to vaping. Then I found VG! I started with 100% VG (not easy to find, but Crystal eJuice is fabulous) on my second shot and managed to quit analogs totally for 4 months! I've since tried mixing some PG in and even just the flavor suspended in PG affects me like that. Headaches, tummy spins, and just a general malaise feeling. Sorry to hear you are feeling like that but thank you for confirming that I'm not a complete odd-ball.

    A greater possibility is dehydration.

    Both PG and VG are humectants (things that suck the moisture out of your body - in laymen's terms). PG more than VG.

    When vaping - INCREASE YOUR WATER / FLUIDS INTAKE by at least 50% (double the intake if you vape heavily).

    =====

    **Headaches and nausea are the 2 most common symptoms of dehydration. They are little SOS's your brain sends out to let you know it's in distress.

    The brain is the only part of your body that doesn't have cells to store water for later use. So when it gets low on water, it "panics" and sends out signals like a headache first. If you don't listen or things are too far gone, the stomach starts rebelling. If you begin throwing up from dehydration - DON'T DRINK WATER. Grab a coke or gatorade and if things don't improve in a few mintues - get thee to a hospital.

    =====

    Unfortunately, Canadians don't drink enough normally and are often on the verge of dehydration. So suddenly consuming a humectant in large quantities can easily slip you right over that edge.

    They tried to bury us. Guess they didn't know we were seeds.
