What is in Your E Juice?

There are 4 Main Ingredients in most e juices.

#1. Vegetable Glycerin

Vegetable glycerin is a clear liquid typically made from coconut, palm, or other oils. By itself, it is odorless and has a mild, sweet taste with a syrup-like consistency. The thicker liquid makes for thicker plumes of smoke.

#2. Propylene Glycol

Propylene Glycol is one of the most commonly used bases which carries nicotine and flavoring better than VG. VG is an additive mainly to get thicker vapor with a bit of a stronger throat hit.

PG has been found safe as a food additive and is used by many common household goods such as:

  • Pet food (excluding cat food).
  • Beauty products, including make-up, shampoo, and baby wipes.

#3. Flavoring

Any shops and e juice maker understands the importance of using the safest chemicals in their mixes. This is especially true with the findings of Diacetyl and ‘Popcorn Lung’ that is known to be the cause in the result of inhalation.

No reputable e juice supplier uses this chemical any longer.

Flavoring agents are now safe as flavoring agents but still without official testing and results.

#4. Nicotine

Nicotine which is mixed into the batch at various levels. Nicotine can be bought in bulk and then used with flavoring and base mixtures to mix your own flavoring and e juice at various nicotine strengths.

Vegetable Glycerin in ratio to Propylene Glycol

The standard ratio for most e juices on the market today is 50/50. This ratio generally depends on the type of vaping device your using. cigalikes, vape pods, and other less powerful units and you would want to use an e juice with a higher PG level than VG. Because of the low power, you might need a higher concentration of nicotine, which would come with a higher ratio of PG.

If you plan on using a high-powered or sub-ohm vaping device then you may want to lean the other way and have a higher VG level in your e juice.

Some sub-ohm vaping can be done with max VG e juice which allows for a smoother hit while producing a lot more vapor. In-taking such a large amount of vapor can be dangerous with high levels of nicotine. But with higher levels of VG in your e juice, you can avoid this and still get a high amount of vapor plume production.
