It may be alarming at first, but luckily vaper's tongue it is not a permanent condition. Here's a closer look at why vaper's tongue may occur and how you can make sure it doesn't happen in the future.

Reasons Why You May Develop Vaper's Tongue

Curious to know why you can't seem to taste your favorite vape juice blend anymore? We've compiled several reasons below you may be experiencing vaper's tongue or vaper's fatigue. Reach each one and try to determine if that may be one of the contributing factors to your condition.

Reason #1: You Are Overly Dehydrated

Dehydration is one of the biggest reasons behind vaper's tongue. The two main ingredients in e-liquid (vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol) can also cause dehydration and make your mouth dry over time. If you've been experiencing headaches, dry skin and a lack of energy you may be suffering from dehydration.

Reason #2: You Have a Stuffy Nose or Have a Cold

Did you know that smell plays a big part in how you taste? When your nose is stuffed up or can't smell anything it can mess with your ability to taste complex flavors and cause vaper's tongue.

Reason #3: You Are Under A Lot of Stress or Feel Very Anxious

According to scientists, stress and anxiety can significantly affect our sense of smell and taste buds. For example, if you are under a lot of stress due to a major life event or circumstance your ability to taste and smell certain vape flavors are impaired.

Reason #4: Your Medication Is Interfering With Your Sense of Smell and Taste

Certain types of medication can also interfere with your sense of smell and contribute to vaper's tongue. If you are taking prescribed medication and suspect that it is affecting your ability to smell food and other items you should make an appointment to see your primary care physician immediately.

Luckily, you can address all of these issues by consuming more water and clearing out your stuffy nose. You can also try to get rid of as much stress from your life as possible and learn more about your medication's possible side effects.   

How You Can Prevent or Stop Vaper's Tongue in The Future

Now that you know several factors that can cause vaper's tongue, here are several tips you can use to make sure it doesn't happen to you again in the future.

Tip #1: Eat Something That Will Cleanse Your Palate

Cleansing your palate is one tactic that can help prevent vaper's tongue. All you have to do is take a break from vaping and eat something or have a drink. This will help renew your taste buds and allow you to start appreciating your favorite premium high VG e-liquid again. We suggest that you try to drink some coffee or eat spicy foods, bread or crackers.

Tip #2: Rinse Your Mouth Out With Mouthwash

Another tip is to use more mouthwash. Remember to stock up on some the next time you're in the store and use it at least twice a day. The next time you feel like you are experiencing vaper's tongue try gargling some mouthwash to regain your sense of smell and taste.

Tip #3: Give Unflavoured Vape Juice a Try

One of the best things about vaping is trying out all the different fruit, tobacco and sweet dessert vape juice blends on the market. Unfortunately, vaping strong tasting vape juice flavors over a period of time can lead to getting vaper's tongue if you aren't careful. To combat this, try vaping unflavored e-liquid for a couple of days or weeks to give your taste buds a break.

Tip #4: Try Alternate Vape Juice Flavors

Do you have a favorite e-juice blend that is your go-to flavor? For example, maybe you love the taste of our Frosted Gingerbread vape juice and enjoy savoring its rich and creamy flavor every day. Eventually, your taste buds and sense of smell may start to wane since you use the vape blend so frequently. Instead of sticking with one flavor, we recommend trying several alternative vape juice flavors. Carry at least two or three different e-juice blends that have very different tastes so your tongue won't get fatigued.

Tip #5: Take A Break From Vaping For Awhile

Our final tip is to take a break from vaping for a week or two. As much as we know how hard that can be, sometimes your tongue just needs a break from vaping. After some time has passed you should be able to taste everything just like normal!

In Conclusion

Vaper's tongue is a common occurrence that can happen to anyone. If you try several or all of our tips and still can't seem to regain your sense of taste or smell, we advise you to seek advice from a qualified medical professional as soon as possible. Vaper's tongue shouldn't last very long, so if you are still having problems after a couple of days or weeks it could be a serious problem.
