What is e-liquids?
E-liquids (or vape juice) is an essential part of vaping. It is the liquid that is heated and turned into vapour for users to then inhale providing nicotine satisfaction. E-liquids come in many flavors, sizes and nicotine strengths.
What is the difference in VG/PG?
With a large range of e-liquids to choose from, you will come to notice that some e-liquids will be thicker than others. This is because of the amount of Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and Propylene Glycol (PG) that is used to making these e-liquids. In short, the higher the VG content the thicker the liquid will be - it also accounts for how smooth the ‘throat hit’ will be and also the amount of vapour that will be produced.
PG is the opposite; The higher the PG, the thinner your e-liquid will be. Furthermore, the ‘throat hit’ will also increase as well and the vapour production won’t be as much.
A majority of vaping device accepts all liquids, however, keep in mind that some manufacturers will recommend a certain ratio which can be usually found in the user manual of the device.
What is inside e-liquids?
