Lowering nicotine...
Hi to everybody. First post here.
I've been vaping for a few weeks now. Got me a Vaporesso drizzle, Attitude and a Aspire nautilus mini.
I was a reasonably heavy smoker (20p/day). 
I started vaping at 12mg and that turned out not enough. I have mostly 80/20 juices. I upped it to 18 but lately I find that I taste the nicotine and also get a light nautiousness. It's irritating and almost worrying as I vape a lot. I'm working from home and have lots of time...
Ok to my question... Will I get the same throat hit if I lower the nicotine to 6mg and use 50/50 vg/pg...?
I read somewhere the pg gives a throat hit by itself.
All comments will be welcomed.
Thanks
Freddie.

18mg to 6mg thats a a big jump, i would suggest trying the 12mg again at a 50/50 mix
6mg on a nautilus wont cut it.

RE: Lowering nicotine...
Yeah thanks i'll do that. I actually meant my aim is 6mg...
I'll do a side by side on 12mg. and see how that goes. 
So is it true that 50/50 by itself gives a better hit?

Hi Fredman. Welcome to TVF you are correct PG does contribute to the throat hit. I suggest you keep trying different nic levels until you find what best suits you.

RE: Lowering nicotine...
You can also increase throat hit with vodka. I know one person who vapes 100% PG and about 0.5mg nicotine. This person adds vodka to the mix (start with a drop or two) for more throat hit. I hate to think what that juice would be like at more than 8W.

TVF tested battery info to be found here

RE: Lowering nicotine...
As long as you are vaping MTL (Mouth to Lung), I'd suggest not going below 12mg. See if you can try a sub-ohm tank/coil, DTL (Direct to Lung) you will get more of a throat hit.

Here are some helpful links from the FAQ Section.

... Where should I set my VV/VW mod?
