RE: Help needed please!!!
Caz, others more knowledgeable than myself can give you an idea as to why. I don't use 0 nic, I need it. I use around 4ml. That's the wonder of mixing your own juice, you can have it your way. It could be the throat hit that is missing.

Not everyone's goal is to get to 0 nic. Since I subohm, the nic is so low, I'm not worried about it. There are so many great things about stopping smoking, I don't think Nic is something to worry about.

Caz, great question/comment. Something I haven't read too much on either but it does make perfect sense that with DiY we all know that it's all about equations/measurements and unique balancing - the smallest variance will alter and change the outcome.

I know a TPA Banana will be very different to a CA Banana, same for each of the other major flavour suppliers...same would obviously hold true if you are altering the formula by removing one of the components...

This would be a great question for our resident chemist Don.

hi caz and welcome
nicotine has a peppery taste more noticeable in higher nic juices
what percentage nic were you mixing at it could be that Good

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0

Something I do that works for me with my 0 nic juices is I add a couple drops of menthol. It tricks the mind for the throat hit. That's just me though

RE: Help needed please!!!
Thanks I will try adding menthol! I was wondering if it was worth trying an additive like Bitter Wizard or Koolada etc?

RE: Help needed please!!!
As mentioned, nic does have a peppery taste and adds to the throat hit of the juice, even at 3mg. Another possible thing to consider would be to add more PG and less VG. PG is harsher than VG and does carry flavorings better.

I've mixed a lot of zero nic juices as well as 3mg nic juices and that trick worked for me. It's never going to be exactly the same but you can make up for the missing nic a little bit.

Another possibility if it is the throat hit from the nicotine that you are missing is to up the percentage of PG. Which will, among other things improve the flavour. Or if you want a dragon flaming down your throat, add up to 10% of cheap vodka. One of my punters does exactly that.

We want to encourage him, not drive him out of vaping! Lol I hate vodka anyway so this sounds like a nightmare.
