Estimated Read Time: 4 minutes
If you’re just getting started with vaping or doing some research into what exactly ‘e-liquids’ or ‘e-juices’ are in the context of vaping then this article will be a nice little walk through.
E Liquid Definition: a liquid used in an e-cigarette or similar device that is heated to produce a vapour that is inhaled.
E juices are liquids primarily made up of three to four components. Vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, nicotine and the flavourings. These four ingredients make up the complete profile of any e-liquid with the final component ‘the flavour’ being the defining factor when it comes to taste and the VG / PG ratio determines and contributes towards the cloudiness and the overall vape experience.
The nicotine component, which is available in a range of strengths from 0 mg (nicotine free) to 18 mg the strength of nicotine you choose will rest largely on the amount of cigarettes you smoked per day. Up to now we have seen that e liquids are made up of 3/4 different ingredients, this makes a nice change from the over 4,000 chemicals found in a traditional cigarette.
Now that we have briefly covered the composition of e-liquids lets dive into the different flavour categories and what each of them has to offer.
As you may already know there are literally thousands of different e-liquid brands out there making fantastic e-liquids which makes it quite difficult in a way to get your head round where to start looking and how to even begin the search for your ideal e-liquid. It's best to define the types of e-liquids available in broad categories.
In all honestly the best advice we have to offer is to try your hand at each type and know for sure which type of e-liquid works well for you. Because there is nothing worse than spending your money on an e-liquid to find out that you won’t actually be able to stand vaping it and it simply collects dust on your bedside table. Now you might be thinking ‘hey, how can I try each type of flavour to be sure, that sounds pretty expensive’. Well that’s where we encourage every vape enthusiast to go to their local vape shop and talk to the people that work there and test the e-liquids. Thankfully at V12 Vapes we fully support the ‘try before you buy’ culture and encourage all those local to the hounslow area to come and see us to have the chance to test and buy over 200 e-juices.
