What are E-Liquids?


E-liquids are used as a flavoring agent in electronic cigarettes and acts as a nicotine solution. The vapor of e-cigarettes is produced by heating the vape juice to make an aerosol, which replaces the traditional smoke from classic cigarettes. 

E-liquid is also known as vape juice or e-juice. The vape juice is passed through the coil of your electronic cigarette along with the current from the battery, both of which trigger vape juice to heat up and create vapor. Here are some things you should know about e-liquid: 

Different Nicotine Levels 

To satisfy your nicotine needs, vape juices come in 5 different nicotine levels, including high with 24 mg nicotine, regular with 18 mg nicotine, light with 12 mg nicotine, extra light with 6 mg nicotine, and none with 0 mg nicotine. If you are a chain smoker and trying to quit smoking, we recommend consuming the higher nicotine level first and slowly reducing your nicotine intake. 

PG/VG Ratio 

PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin) are used as a base for e liquids. PG is a lab-made liquid that the FDA generally approves in various cosmetics, drugs, and food. This fluid is also used to create artificial fog or smoke for performance. On the other hand, VG is a thick, colorless, and odorless liquid with a slightly sweet taste.  

For vaping, we don’t recommend using a 100% pure PG blend or a 100% pure VG blend. Instead, we suggest using a specific ratio of these bases for a smoother and cleaner vaping experience. The most popular and effective PG/VG ratios are: 

•    70% PG/VG 30% 
•    50% PG/VG 50% 
•    30% PG/VG 70% 

Food Grade Flavoring 

The delicious and mouth-watering taste that can be found in every type of e-liquid comes from food-quality ingredients. A mixture of base (PG and/or VG) and specific food additives create a robust flavor. By combing the food-safe flavoring together, many brands are selling e-liquid with various flavors such as beverages, birthday cakes, desserts, fruits, and more.
