What Is E Liquid?

There are three main types of e liquid and they are PG, VG and Mixed. These three versions of e liquid are extremely important when it comes to buying your e-liquid. They affect the flavour and power of vaping. Below is a guide to the different types of e liquid available.

Guide To The Different Types of E Liquid

1. Propylene Glycerol E Liquid
PG is the more widely used e juice as it offers more of a ‘throat hit’ which vape smokers like, its also very thin so it doesn’t clog up your atomizers and burners. There are some concerns about the usage of Propylene Glycerol in e liquid as some people can develop allergy reaction to the PG (only a small few have been reported) but in spite of this PG is still the main commercial e liquid for electronic cigarettes. All in all PG does produce the all round better vape. 

PG Features: Throat Hit, Thin Liquid, Less Viscous (easier to burn)

2. Vegetable Glycerine E Liquid
VG e liquid (Vegetable Glycerine) is reported to be completely safe within the vape smokers forums and also adds a more sweeter taste to the e liquid. There are also no reported cases of anyone having allergic reactions, or any health concerns voiced around the forums using VG e juice. Using VG is reported to produce a less powerful throat hit and is more ‘gluppy’ than PG so it can reduce your atomizer working life span. 

VG Features: Sweeter Taste, More Vapour

3. Mixed (PG + VG) E Liquid (MOST COMMON)
There are a lot of e liquid providers as well as users who mix PG with VG. The most common percentage of splits are: 74 / 25 (PG-VG). 

Nicotine

Nicotine is a drug and is mixed in with the eliquid using the following percentages:

24mg (High)
18mg (Medium)
11mg (Medium Low)
7mg (Low)

Nicotine strength is measured in milligrams per ml (mg/ml) not per bottle. There are about 20-40 drops per milliliter, and this differs with each size bottle or dropper.

Although rare it is important to note any nicotine overdose symptoms

Paleness of Skin
