PG/VG Blends… What Does It All Mean?
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.
