How Cool Should That Menthol Flavor Be


If you’re wild about that icy hit of menthol when you pull on your device, you probably at some point have spent a good deal of time exploring the countless menthol-flavored vape juices from DJC.  And, that means that by now, you’ve realized that not all menthol flavors are created equally.  While some shock your throat with that intensely frosty sensation, others are not quite as potent, giving you more of a clean peppermint taste rather than a powerful blast to the back of your throat.

So, why do some menthol flavors feel cooler than others?  And, is it necessary for a menthol flavor to be ice-cold for it to satisfy?

What is Menthol?

Ever wonder why menthol flavors have that cooling sensation in the first place?  Menthol is a compound that’s found in the essential oils of plants belonging to the mint family.  It’s been used for thousands of years as a natural pain reliever because of the fact that it naturally delivers a cooling, numbing sensation on contact.  So, when this compound is added to an e-liquid, it produces an icy sensation along the throat that many vapers find absolutely irresistible.

What’s Cool?

Ultimately, how cool you want your menthol flavor to be is totally up to you.  Menthol is a natural substance that’s been inhaled since ancient times, which is why there’s no reason to avoid a deeply intense cooling sensation when you vape a menthol-flavored e-juice.

What Makes Some Menthol Flavors Cooler Than Others?

Now that we’ve explained what menthol is, it’s time to break down the reasons why some menthol flavors are icier than others.

Reason #1: Quantity of Menthol Itself

This is the most obvious one.  How intense that cooling sensation is largely depends on the amount of menthol that’s in the e-liquid’s recipe.  Needless to say, the more menthol, the stronger that icy feeling will be.  Some e-liquid companies do water down their menthol with cheap imitations which is why they’re not as strong as some would like them to be.

Reason #2: Other Flavoring Ingredients

If you’re vaping an e-liquid that consists of menthol and at least one other flavor, it’s possible that the other flavoring extracts are counteracting the cooling effect of the menthol.  Certain dessert flavors, for instance, can mellow out the iciness, such as custard and cream.  Meanwhile, certain other flavors actually enhance that sensation, such as apples, berries and melons.

Reason #3: Type of Nicotine

The type of nicotine that you’re vaping can have an effect on the coolness of the menthol flavor as well.  It seems that menthol-flavored vape juices that contain salt-based nicotine are icier than ones that are made with freebase nicotine.  This is because of the way in which the nicotine salts allow the vapor to hit the throat.  And, this type of nicotine is renowned for its ability to deliver a strong throat hit, and when that vape juice contains a large amount of menthol, that strong throat hit is going to feel incredibly chilly.

Reason #4: VG/PG Ratio

Another factor is the ratio of vegetable glycerin (VG) to propylene glycol PG).  PG is a thinner ingredient that hits the throat harder than VG.  So, if your vape juice has a higher amount, you’re probably going to feel that cool menthol sensation much more strongly.

Reason #5: Wattage Level

The wattage level of your device may affect that menthol hit as well.  The higher the wattage of your device, the stronger your hits will be in general, which means that the blast of chilliness will be more intense.

Feel Vaping Cool

If you’re a menthol fanatic who is always chasing that icy feeling, this article will help you know what to look for.  Just make sure that you go with a high-quality e-liquid that contains real menthol extract.  Otherwise, you won’t get that blast of coolness that you crave.
