What is e-liquid made from?
E-liquid or e-juice is the fluid you vaporize into aerosol form when vaping. There are number of variables that can occur between lines and brands, including flavors, nicotine levels and viscosity determined by something called the PG/VG ratio. Most e-liquid is comprised of four ingredients: Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Nicotine (optional) and food-grade flavoring. Propylene Glycol helps produce a smooth vaping experience and is commonly found as an additive in a multitude of regularly-consumed products such as medicines, toothpastes, ice creams, food flavoring extracts and coloring. Vegetable Glycerin helps produce the “clouds” of vapor that come from heating your liquid and can also help in adjusting the viscosity of fluids. Nicotine, which is an optional additive, can be added in a degree of strengths from a number of sources, including tobacco and tomato plants. Flavors are almost limitless in their varieties and can also be mixed together to produce countless combinations.
So what’s a PG/VG ratio referring to?
PG/VG or VG/PG ratio is an overview as to what percentage of an e-liquid is comprised of Propylene Glycol versus Vegetable Glycerin. So for example if the PG/VG ratio is 50/50 that means that it is made of equal parts of each. PG is thinner than VG meaning it more easily wicks into your atomizer, producing consistent “hits” without you getting dry, burned coils. While PG does not effect the flavor significantly, it can effect the “throat hit” or harshness of a liquid. VG is more viscous and helps produce the “clouds” of vapor you exhale due to its denser composition. VG also brings a slight sweetness to flavors as well as offsetting some of the harsh throat hit produced by the PG. Both PG and VG help effectively distribute both the nicotine and flavor in your e-liquid. Artisan Vapor and CBD offers a wide array of liquids in various PG/VG ratios, meaning there is an option available for all types of user and preference.
What are the best flavors to vape?
That’s entirely up to you, generally we’ve found people initially start with a tobacco flavor before gravitating towards more adventurous options like fruity or savory choices. Don’t be afraid to venture away from tobacco flavors towards these alternative options though, as the sooner you get away from tobacco flavors the less appealing cigarettes will likely remain to you.
