About PG/VG Levels in E-Liquids / E-juice?

E-juice PG/VG Ratios de-mystified…

new-cuttwood-unicorn-milk-clear-e-juice-vaporlifeusaConfused about VG/PG ratios in e-liquids? What does it all mean? Don’t worry, Vapor Life has you covered. Each e-liquid is set to a basic “industry standard” mix (with the exception of nic level). Just pick your favorite flavor and desired nicotine level. High quality e-liquids should have  have a smooth, full bodied taste with a good deal of vapor as well as a good throat hit.  If there is a little something missing you can adjust the nicotine levels accordingly.

Vapor Life’s knowledgeable staff can help guide you to the right flavors, nic levels and brands to ensure you have the best vaping experience!

PG/VG Blends… What Does It All Mean?

There are 3 main ingredients in E-Lquid and they are PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerin) and flavoring.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a thick, sweet liquid.  VG produces luscious clouds of vapor.  VG also imparts a sweeter taste to your liquid.
VG carries the flavor so when you find a 99%  e-liquids it usually has a very low nicotine level like .03 mg.

Propylene Glycol (PG) is a much thinner tasteless liquid. PG produces more of a “throat hit” than VG does, which simulates the feel of smoking better.  PG is the ingredient that carries the nicotine.  Food grade PG is perfectly safe and is used in nearly 98% of all products ingested, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics sold in the USA.
PG also has a higher rate of sensitivity for some people, meaning that some people just can’t use high PG e liquids for long periods of time as their all day vape. However, a higher PG content is great if you are new to vaping and you are trying to quit smoking harmful cigarettes due to the powerful throat hit.

PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerin) is generally 70% PG and 30% VG for most e-liquid/e-juice on the market.  For example, if you want more of a throat hit when vaping, choose a high PG ratio like 80/20 or 70/30 PG/VG. If huge vapor clouds and a more pronounced flavor is more to your liking  you will want a higher VG blend like 50/50 or 40/60 PG/VG for your desired result.
 
Please note, there is no such thing as  100% VG in e-liquids that contain nicotine.. All e-liquids that contain nicotine need to have at least 1% PG or alcohol to carry the nicotine and promote wicking. The 1% PG e-liquid usually have very low (.03) nicotine levels. They are great for mechanical mods and individuals who have reduced their dependance on nicotine.
