Worried about swallowing e-liquid? Here's what you need to know.

What Happens If I Swallow Vape Juice?

Getting vape juice in your mouth when vaping is one of the most common occurrences and is relatively risk-free as it is a minimal amount. Consuming a large amount of e-liquid containing nicotine in the none intended way can be dangerous.

Even if you try your hardest to vape without getting any excess eliquid in your mouth, it will still happen at some point.

One of the main reasons for this issue happening may be that you have faulty hardware, meaning that the juice is flooding the coil inside the vape kit and leaking out of the mouthpiece into the mouth.

Another reason this may happen is due to overfilling of the vape; when this happens, the juice has nowhere else to escape other than the mouthpiece.

Lastly, one of the most common reasons for this is when you inhale on the vape a little bit too hard, which results in sucking liquid residue up through the mouthpiece and into the user's mouth.

As unpleasant as swallowing vape juice is, there is not a huge amount to worry about. The liquid may not taste great, but it is made up of ingredients generally classed as not harmful, such as Vegetable Glycerine and Propylene Glycol, which can be found in numerous food products. However, this does not mean that vape juice is fine to swallow, and swallowing vape juice should be avoided at all costs.

If you are unfortunate enough to swallow vape juice, here is what you can do:

Rinse Your Mouth.

Generally, users will only get a small amount of liquid in their mouth, but whether you have a small or large amount leak into your mouth, then it is highly recommended to spit this out and rinse out your mouth with water as quickly as possible to remove any residue and to avoid swallowing any juice left behind.

Although Unlikely, Be Aware Of Side Effects And Seek Medical Assistance If Side Effects Show.

Should you be unfortunate enough to swallow vape juice and begin to feel unwell, it is highly recommended that you seek medical assistance to avoid further issues.

Determine Why This Happened.

Try to figure out why this issue initially happened in the first place, and then amend how you use your vape to avoid this issue happening again.

What Happens If You Swallow A Little Bit Of Vape Juice?

If you are unfortunate enough to experience swallowing a little bit of vape juice, then there is no need to worry. If this has happened to you, it is highly recommended that you spit out any excess juice left in your mouth and then rinse it using water to remove any residue left behind. If you begin to feel any side effects, such as nausea, burning of the mouth or dizziness after rinsing out your mouth, it is highly recommended that you seek medical assistance to avoid this becoming a harmful issue.

In conclusion, if you have only swallowed a little bit of vape juice, then this is generally not going to be a problem as the ingredients in vape juices, such as Vegetable Glycerine and Propylene Glycol, are found in many food products but please pay attention to any growing side effects after rinsing out your mouth and seek medical advice if the side effects continue.
