Which Vape Liquid is Right for Your Vaping Needs?
To smoke is human. To vape, divine. You’ve chosen divinity.
There will always be debates concerning the best e-cigarette. The vape liquid you choose for them, however, is entirely a matter of personal choice.
What’s your pleasure?
Traditionalist? Use tobacco or menthol-flavored juice in your ecig.
Sweet tooth? How does raspberry or strawberry mint strike you?
Do you like to get up at the crack of dawn? There’s energy drink flavor and even coffee flavor out there.
The flavor is, after all, one of the reasons to choose an ecig over a combustible tobacco cigarette. Let’s look at a few of the choices of e-liquids out there.
Vape Liquid Fast Facts
Some production facilities are located in places that exercise strict oversight and enforce quality standards.
Others are in countries where both industry regulations and quality control measures may be a bit light.
If you’re buying pencils or drink coasters, it probably doesn’t matter where they were manufactured. For a product intended for use in your body, like your vape liquid, please exercise caution.
When you find your e-liquid for a fraction of the “same” product’s price at a different vendor, you’ve likely found a version you’re better off avoiding.
A reputable supplier will be very glad to answer any questions you may have about the source of their ejuice. They’ll tell you how it’s made, and why it’s made that way.
How Different Can They Be?
Again, we’ll leave the best ecig discussion for the intellectuals. (In time, you’ll join that debate anyway.)
Let’s talk vape juice.
Vape liquid consists of the following:
- Nicotine (or not)
- Water (sometimes)
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
Those last two comprise the majority of the vape juice. The proportion between the two makes a huge difference.
PG-only or VG-only e-liquids aren’t uncommon.
100% PG e-juice is generally too thin to vape without a wicking mechanism. It also offers a less dense, less visible vapor cloud.
100% VG e-liquid is sometimes favored due to its natural, though slight, sweetness. Purists boast a heartier hit, fuller flavor, and thicker vapor. Mixing the two enhances the best features of each.
Combined, the lower density also allows the vapor to travel more quickly through your ecig.
Enough science. Let’s get to the experience.
Chemistry aside, different e-liquids offer different experiences. And no one but you can say which one is best.
So what’s left after a manufacturer fine-tunes that all-important PG/VG ratio?
With over 8,000 flavors of vaping liquid available, you can vape a different flavor every day for 22 years. Two decades from now, of course, the number of flavors for sale will have increased.
Selecting just the right vape juice for an ecig serves as an example of how 21st-century folks like to live.
Lots of options. Unhurried. Entirely individualized. Trial and error in choosing your favorite e-liquid is not just expected. In fact, it’s the only way to go.
Armed with the information above, get started. Take your time, ask questions, satisfy your own taste.
