E-Liquid (Nicotine)

E-liquid usually contains 4 main ingredients. These include:

PG (Propylene Glycol) – used in food flavorings, cosmetics, asthma inhalers, and fog machines. This is a very safe and natural ingredient but some people are allergic to this. Usually people who are allergic will show signs of a rash or sore throat, but nothing very serious. If this is the case then they can use VG. Propylene Glycol is known to be an increase in flavor and throat hit, but lacking in vapor.

VG (Vegetable Glycerin) – this is more syrupy in viscosity and is also derived from vegetables. It is also very safe and natural. Vegetable Glycerin is known to be an increase in vapor, but lacking in flavor and throat hit.

Nicotine – The nicotine is derived from tobacco in highly pure concentrations so that the chemicals are no longer remaining. A very small amount is used. The more milligrams of nicotine that is incorporated in your juice, the more throat hit you get.

Flavoring – This is derived from either different types of tobacco or food flavorings. The strength of the flavoring differs depending on the vendor that you or your vendor uses. Most people recommend getting a “flavor shot” or extra flavor in the e-juice that you order.

The most common mix between PG and VG is 70PG/30VG or 80PG/20VG. The only thing that is not “safe” for human consumption in this list is nicotine. Although, without the thousands of chemicals, nicotine is very similar to caffeine in terms to harmful effects to the body, and this is quite close to a cup of coffee when we vape.
