Have you ever been been vaping your favourite flavour, and suddenly noticed you don’t like it any more? Or, even worse, found you can’t taste anything or that your tongue is a bit numb?
WHAT IS VAPE TONGUE ?
Vaping is, for the most part, a very pleasant experience for most people. Whether you do it because you like the flavor of your favorite e liquid or you do it because your preferred e juice provides you with just the right amount of nicotine every time you use it, vaping has many advantages.
However, there is one hazard that you will have to watch out for if you vape on a regular basis. It’s called “vaper’s tongue” and it can affect your entire vaping experience. It can also force you to question whether or not your taste buds are working properly at any given time.
Vape tongue symptoms are very easy to fix. It’s nothing to worry about, and these 8 tips will most likely help in the cure. Vapers tongue won’t last too long if you take care of it as soon as you notice that you can no longer taste your favorite flavor anymore.
8 Ways to Cure Vapers Tongue
1. Change the flavour
This simple solution has worked for me! Simply change the flavour you are vaping, and return to it after a couple of weeks. Hopefully, it will then taste just as good as it used to!
2. Use a stronger flavour
It may also be an idea to abandon the more subtle, refined vaping flavours, and use something a bit more down to earth and strong.
3. Inhaling the smell of fresh coffee beans
This is a technique used by professional wine tasters and perfume samplers. While I’ve no idea how it works, these experts believe that inhaling the scent of fresh coffee beans “resets” your sense of taste. A number of vapers have mentioned this has been a solution for their vaper’s tongue, so it’s got to be worth a try!
4. Mouth wash
There’s mixed thoughts on this. Some vapers think mouthwash helps to resolve vaper’s tongue, others think that it causes it! One to try if nothing else works.
5. Sucking on a lemon
Like coffee beans, sucking on a lemon is supposed to reset your taste buds. If lemons are a bit too sour for you, try lemon sorbet!
6. End dual vaping
If you’re a dual vaper (you both smoke and vape) then, if you can, it might be an idea to try just vaping for a couple of weeks and seeing if that makes a difference. It could just give you that final push to make the final, full transition to electronic cigarettes.
8. Allow time to recover
As we’ve discussed, damaged taste buds can take up to two weeks to recover. So give it a little time and you may find your tongue is back to normal!
Regardless of how you take care of your vaper’s tongue, you shouldn’t have to deal with it for very long. It’s a necessary evil in the world of vaping, but again, it’s not anything that you need to worry about from a health standpoint. If anything, you should consider it a sign that it’s time for you to move on wand try something new.
There are so many e juices in the world to enjoy and so much more to vaping, so get out there and find another flavor that works for you. Ask those vapers around you about vaper’s tongue, too, to see what other tips they can provide you. You will probably be surprised to see how many other vapers have experienced it and what they have done to overcome it.
