Vaping has finally reached the tipping point! From the earliest e-cig “vape” devices (made by the tobacco companies) to today’s high-tech APVs (Advanced Personal Vaporizers – or “Vape Pens”), vaping has come a long way.
What Makes E-Liquid Juice Good?
Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
This is a thicker heavy sweet-tasting liquid. It gives smokeless cigarettes a pleasant sweet flavor and creates a lot of vapor. It’s also very smooth in the throat. VG is completely natural and safe, derived from vegetables; most manufacturers use organic, non-GMO veggies.
Propylene Glycol (PG)
This is very thin by comparison and sweeter than VG. PG produces a great throat hit, which is why some ex-smokers favor PG based liquids. PG is also used in Asthma inhalers, so it is safe, however PG has a higher rate of sensitivity and can cause allergic reactions in some users.
Blends of VG and PG offer experienced vapers the best of both worlds, giving you the throat hit and sweetness of PG and the vapor production of vegetable glycerin juices. Different ratios produce different experiences. Experiment and find your bliss!
