When you want to make an e-juice at home, you merely need three ingredients to do so. VG, PG, and flavor of your choice.
The very purpose of making a vape juice is so that you can add a flavor you love to vape.
The possibilities are absolutely endless when it comes to choosing a vape juice flavor.
Get creative, you can do anything from selecting your favorite fruit flavor to mixing up different flavors into one.
You can also use an ice cream flavor, cake, cookie dough, or any other taste you desire.
What are VG and PG?
VG stands for vegetable glycerin and PG stands for propylene glycol. They are the most widely used bases in the e-liquid industry.
Propylene glycol is the most commonly used base for e-liquids in vaping.
It is runny, compared to VG, and can create a mess if you are not careful with it.
Its consistency is thinner than vegetable glycerin, which makes it easier to be cleaned.
The best thing about PG is the throat hit it delivers to vapers, being a humectant; keeping everything moist.
It does not have a flavor of its own and thereof has no impact on the e-liquid flavor.
Compared to VG, propylene glycol is less vicious. As a result, it helps vapers in having a better throat hit.
Vegetable glycerin, on the other hand, offers denser clouds to vapers. Vegetable glycerin is a sweet and thick e-liquid base.
Having a distinctive taste of its own, it impacts the overall flavor of e-liquid slightly.
Because of its thickness, it gets stuck to the sides of the coil and tank, which is difficult to clean.
As the liquid is thick, it creates thick vape clouds – perfect for people who like to compete in vape competitions or just like the aesthetics of thick vape clouds.
