There are many different e-liquid flavors on the market including dessert, beverage, fruity, candy, menthol, tobacco, creamy, and breakfast blends. Also, new flavors are introduced each year. But, have you ever stopped to wonder what is in your e-juice? Well, in this post, we’ll look at the components of e-liquids.
The E-liquid Ingredients
There are four main e-liquid ingredients; vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), nicotine and flavoring.
The only issue with VG is that the sweetness of this ingredient can affects the taste of the e-liquid. Also, MAX VG e-liquids have a weak throat hit. Furthermore, e-liquids that contain high levels of VG are more likely to gunk your coil, especially if the e-juice is very sweet. You will find that you need to clean your device more often or change the coils frequently.
Among these different ingredients, none is standard. E-liquids can come with only vegetable glycerin and no propylene glycol. Also, you can get e-liquids that do not contain any nicotine. If you’re a cloud chaser, you are better off going for MAX VG e-liquids. Meanwhile, flavor chasers need to go for MAX PG e-liquids. Whatever you choose, it is important to check your vapor e-liquid ingredients and ensure you are vaping a high-quality blend.
If you choose to combine two e-liquids or mix nicotine with an e-juice, it is important to get your measurements correctly. You will find online calculators that allow you to determine the percentage of each ingredient required to make a certain volume of e-juice. Keep in mind that mixing e-liquids requires a lot of patience. You may need to experiment with different blends before you hit the mark. Don’t be let down.
Now you know what goes into making e-liquids. So, the next time you are buying your favorite e-juice, take the time to read up about its components.
