Vaper's Tongue: What Is It and How Do You Fix It?

Chances are, you've experienced vaper's tongue before, but what is it? Here's a guide to what vaper's tongue is, and how to fix it if you have it.

A touch of numbness on the tongue, a ghastly lack of flavour. The dreaded vaper's tongue has awoken.

If you're a regular vaper, there's a high chance you've been blighted by this affliction at times in the past. People who vape a lot while trying to quit smoking might find themselves disproportionately affected by the condition.

But don't worry, the symptoms won't last forever. Here's how to break the curse.

What Is Vaper's Tongue?

It's a condition where your sense of taste diminishes to the point you no longer enjoy, or can't taste, your e-liquids.

During this time, you might even think some of your e-liquids have gone 'off' as all of a sudden they taste disgusting to you. They probably haven't changed at all. It's you, not them.

This is a common problem, and happens often after a period of heavy vaping.

You'll notice it for a few days, and then your ability to taste e-liquids will return.

Really, it's your nose being affected by the condition and not your tongue. But sufferers will often feel an odd sensation on the tongue while they're affected, which is where the name comes from.

Your olfactory system has become overloaded with the flavour, and needs time to recover.

Will Switching Flavours Help?

Swapping out your e-liquid for another flavour might help, but there's a low chance of this working.

Some people find this method solves the problem. Though to be honest, this is quite a rare outcome.

A stronger flavour might help some people for a bit, but it won't solve the underlying problem.

More humorously, there have been some reports of people buying food flavouring after mistaking it for vape juice. Then leaving negative reviews when it tastes awful.

If this is you, head to our store pronto to get the real deal. No judgment here. Well. Maybe a little.

Give It a Break

Put down the vape for a bit.

Your nose needs to spend a little time without being bombarded with the vapour.

This is the easiest and most reliable solution, though of course if you're trying to whittle down on your nicotine intake it might be an unpleasant few days.

You might like to try gum or patches for a week while your olfactory system gets back to normal. Then you can start hitting the e-juice again!

If You Have a Cold

If you're in the midst of a cold, bout of flu, or other illness, you might have a blocked nose.

Since vape 'tasting' is going on in your nose rather than your mouth, a blocked nose can cause similar symptoms to vaper's tongue.

You might have to wait until the symptoms go away before things taste right again. Drink plenty of water and rest, and take it easy for a week or so.
