Whatís in Your E-Liquid?
you ever wondered just what is in that tasty
youíre vaporizing? We only stock American E-Juices/E-Liquids to sell with
our E-Cigs, we take pride in offering some of the highest-quality
available. Electric cigarettes produce a smoke-like vapor, and if they
contain nicotine, a strong throat hit as well. This vapor is not smoke;
itís produced by a liquid contained in the flavor cartridge called
ďe-liquid.Ē E-liquid is typically comprised of four main ingredients:
water, propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG), nicotine and
flavoring. Today, letís delve into the world of VG and PG, two of the most
well-known e cig ingredients.
you vape, the battery heats up a premium liquid contained in the flavor
cartridge, producing a dense, smoke-like vapor. E-liquid is also referred
to as e-juice, nicotine fluid, juice and smoke juice. V2 Cigs offers a
wide variety of flavors to choose from, including non-nicotine versions.
To get the best properties of each ingredient, most vapers prefer a
mixture of PG and VG in order to enjoy a strong throat hit as well as a
significant vapor. Conveniently, most E-Cigs
contain both PG and VG!
What is Propylene Glycol?
is one of the base ingredients that form e-liquid; this is what provides
you with that deliciously strong throat hit. PG is generally recognized as
safe (GRAS) by the FDA,
and has been used in a variety of household, food, skincare and health
products for over 50 years.
PG has little to no taste and therefore wonít affect flavored e-liquid.
Itís a relatively thin liquid which can prolong the life of your
cartridge. However, itís best when combined with other ingredients like VG
to give a better-rounded vaping experience. In the rare case that someone
is allergic to propylene glycol, e-liquids containing VG are the perfect
What Is Vegetable Glycerin?
is another commonly used substance in the e-liquid found in e cigs. VG is
a natural ingredient derived from plants and, like PG, is often contained
in many household products like lotions, shampoos, toothpastes, pet foods,
medications, bakery items and more.
VG boasts a much thicker viscosity than PG. It can have a mildly sweet
taste, so it is often blended with PG in e-liquid to accommodate the full
flavors of E-Cigs.
Because of its dense properties, VG is known for the thick vapor it
produces; PG is a thinner substance and produces a more smooth kind of
vapor. While many electric cigarette fans would prefer to have an e-liquid
made exclusively from VG, the fluid is so thick that it can shorten the
life span of your cartridge if not diluted with its partner, propylene
glycol. Thatís why we use both ingredients in our E-Juice/E-liquids!
How do Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin Compare with Each
PG and VG are used regularly to produce the e-liquid contained in e cigs.
These two ingredients are usually combined with various amounts of water
and/or nicotine, as well as food grade flavoring to produce the perfect
blend of e-liquid. With PGís smooth throat hit and VGís thick vapor, the
two substances interact with each other to give you exactly what youíre
looking for in an electric cigarette.
