E-Liquid & Vape Juice Basics
E-liquid, e-cig juice, and e-juice are names for the same thing―a liquid that vaporizers turn into gas, which you can then inhale. E-liquids are not the only substances that can be vaporized; oils and wax are also popular options. However, e-juice has recently exploded in popularity due to the huge range of flavors available. The majority of e-juice is a mixture of vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol, frequently referred to as VG and PG respectively. Both are sugar alcohols; clear and odorless. While in the same chemical class, they do produce slightly different effects when vaporized.VG has a thicker consistency than its counterpart, a noticeably sweeter taste, and produces much bigger clouds.
Derived from vegetable oils, VG is considered to be vegetarian. E-juice that has a higher VG concentration usually has a smoother throat hit. PG, however, excels at carrying flavor and tends to deliver a “cleaner” taste. Its throat hit is more pronounced, making it similar to the sensation of smoking. It is a by-product of a thinner, more refined oil that many flavorings come in, but is safe to inhale and commonly found in baby wipes, toothpaste, and makeup. While it is possible to have a 100 percent VG or PG solution, e-liquids tend to made up of a mixture of both. In fact, some compositions work with certain kinds of vaporizers.
Nicotine & Nicotine Free E-Liquid
One of the best things about e-juice is that you can choose how much nicotine you want. If you enjoy the sensation and taste but are not interested in the nicotine itself, you can opt for a nicotine-free e-juice. Contrastly, there are types of e-liquid that deliver a higher dose of nicotine closer to that of a traditional cigarette.
Heavy smokers may be drawn to pods―like those made by Juul, due to their use of nicotine salts. Because nicotine salts have a lower PH level than regular e-liquid and are more quickly absorbed by the human body, it results in smoother nicotine intake so less vapor is needed. Pods, which are vapes that take ready-filled cartridges of e-juice for convenience, work best with these salts or you can get empty pods and fill your own for a more economical option.
Sub-ohm vapes, however, often have lower nicotine levels. These devices are often created specifically to produce more flavor and large, dense clouds of vapor, which generally requires higher levels of VG. Since nicotine does not suspend as readily in VG as PG, sub-ohm vaping usually uses lower or zero nicotine content.
This type of vaping e-liquid provides a more robust, intense nicotine delivery system for the former smoker. Nicotine has a different PH level than regular e-liquid so it can be absorbed quickly for a smooth hit that satisfies cravings. It can also be vaped at relatively low temperatures, which enhances the flavor and allows you to use a smaller disposable vape or a pod vape device where less e-liquid is needed.
With new flavors being added to the market all the time, a huge variety is provided to vapers. Once you have figured out your favorite throat-hit intensity and nicotine level, you can experiment with a range of flavors.
