I am already trying to do a bit of priming after pulls, or even before pulls. The issue is that my mother is not so "advanced" in vaping, so to speak, and I want her to heave a seamless experience. The potential for dry hits is not good for her as she is having a hard time getting into it.

My next idea is to get a small needle and just puncture the cotton, visible through the juice holes, to make it wick better. Hopefully, it will have some effect.
