The e-liquid also named ejuice is the liquid used in electronic cigarette for producing vapor and simulating smokiing. It's normally composed of up to 4 ingrendients:
PG (Propylene glycol)
VG (Vegetable Glycerin)
Flavor (Hundreds kind of food flavors)
Nicotine (You can choose 0 nicotine)
Also you can add some distilled water to dilute the E-Liquid if it’s too thick, such as 100% VG based eliquid.
The PG (Propylene glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin) are the two primary base ingredients of eliquid. They are all FDA approved and are equally safe.
The PG is a clear, colorless liquid which usually been used as a flavoring carrier in food products, The main applications of Vegetable Glycerin are cosmetics products, food production, and e-juice.
The VG is a natural organic liquid made from vegetable oil, it’s sweet and thick, more viscous than PG. The main applications of Vegetable Glycerin are cosmetics products, food production, and e-juice.
The PG is thinner and the VG is thicker
E-liquid can be made up of 100% PG base, 100% VG base or a combination of both.
: PG based eliquid provides a stronger throat hit and more pure flavor taste than the VG based ones.
: VG based eliquid creates more vapor than the PG based ones, and it has a slightly sweet aftertaste.
PG is thinner and has low density, it’s absorbed much faster by wick materials, and less likely to gunk up your wicks and heating elements of the atomizers, meaning less cleaning required for the atomizers/ That will meet many popular atomizers/ clearomizers in the market, such as CE4, H2,MT3.
VG is thicker and has high density, it can produce thicker clouds, but it’s also more likely to build up on your wicks, heating elements and other vaping components, meaning more cleaning and maintenance will be required.
Mostly eliquid companies mix both PG and VG together to retain the advantages of the 2 ingredients. PG deliver you better flavor taste, stronger throat hit, and VG produce more vapors. The typical ratio of the PG and VG is 50/50, 60/40 and 70/30.
About the Nicotine
Nicotine is addictive ingredient, don’t suggest those non-smokers / new vapers use nicotine in the eliquid.
The nicotine level is measured by the number of milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of liquid. So 24mg/ml means there is 24 milligrams of nicotine in 1 milliliter of liquid. For those smokers who wanna switch to vaping, you can choose the different nicotine levels depending on how many traditional cigarettes you consume daily. Just test and choose the best level for you.
Don’t forget that you switch to ecig cause you want to quit, so don’t choose too high level, and also downgrade the nicotine level step by step to help you quit.
