The main ingredients of your E-liquid
July 09, 2020
Ever wondered what is in your e-liquid?
We all have heard these abbreviations PG and VG but, very few of us actually know about these.
PG stands for propylene glycol which is a petroleum by-product and VG stands for Vegetable glycerin, it is a natural chemical derived from vegetable oils. Both of these are non-toxic, organic compounds. They are widely used as additives in a variety of commercial foods and personal care products because they’re considered safe to use.
Now, let’s talk about these two separately,
Along with these properties there is one downside too, PG can cause allergic reactions in some consumers. These reactions can vary from minor, like a tingling sensation in the throat, to serious like tingling on various parts of the body.
Which one to choose, when?
Now let’s talk about when you should choose PG and when you should choose VG, also when you need a mix of both.
For a stronger throat hit you need high PG ratio mixed with freebase nicotine or nicotine salts.
For a smooth vaping experience your preference should be high VG, but the wattage must be adjusted to avoid any dry hit or burns.
If you don’t want people to give you odd looks while you’re vaping you need to choose high PG vape juice because high PG vaping produces less vapors.
If you like dense clouds and that thick mouthful feeling, high VG vape fluid is the right choice.
For a good vaping experience, along with choosing the right ratio it is also very important to choose the vape tank. That is designed to go with the ratio you have chosen.
Is PG better or VG?
Neither PG nor VG is better, because choosing the concentration of these fluids in your vape liquid is a matter of choice. To get the finest flavor both PG and VG work best combined. The ideal ratio used around the vaping world is 70:30 70% PG and 30% VG. It gives the perfect throat hit along with dense clouds.
The information we have gathered above can be very useful for vapers who are new to vaping. Even for vapers who have been vaping for long but didn’t know what actually is there that gives them the unforgettable experience that they get, while vaping.
