Every vaper has got questions; things they are not sure about and need to understand. If you have questions, the chances are that you are not alone.
Whether you want to learn how to make your own e-juice, or you just want to know more so you know what you are buying from your ejuice stores, it’s all explained in this article. Let us start with the basics.
- What is e-juice?
This is a common one and its no surprise. E-liquids contain either vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), or the two as their base. The remaining elements are flavor concentrates and nicotine. Nicotine may or may not be included in the formula.
You may have heard or read about vaping and saw that they use other names like e-liquid, salt nic juice, vape juice, etc. They all refer to the same thing.
- What is the difference between vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol?
We know both are used as the base in e-juice. The difference is that vegetable glycerin (VG) is a colorless, odorless and viscous base that offers vapor mists when you vape. This creates the impression of smoke clouds. Propylene glycol (PG), on the other hand, is lighter than VG and is found in many foods, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals. Unlike VG, PG adds to the throat hit.
- What is the difference between smoking and vaping
This is a common one, especially for smokers who are thinking of making the transition to vaping. So smoking is inhaling the smoke created when you burn a cigarette. Vaping, on the other hand, is inhaling the vapor created by an electronic cigarette as it heats up the e-juice.
One of the major differences is what is burnt up. When smoking, you burn up thousands of different ingredients that we cannot even try to begin to list here. Most, if not all of these ingredients, are harmful to you. On the other hand, when vaping, there is no combustion. Instead, your vape juice is vaporized.
- Can I vape anywhere?
No, you cannot vape anywhere. Many cities and countries have prohibited vaping in public places. Some cities and countries allow it. Also, you will find that some establishments prohibit vaping on their property
- What e-juice nicotine strength should I choose?
This is entirely based on personal preference. Some vapers prefer stronger nicotine while others prefer less nicotine.
People differ in the amount of nicotine they need. A transitioning smoker may be leveling down his or her nicotine consumption by gradually reducing the amount of nicotine he or she consumes. For some others, they could hardly care.
Standard e juices come with 0mg, 3mg, 6mg or 12mg of nicotine.
- Can I make my own vape juice?
