A Beginner's Guide to Understanding E-Juices

It goes by very many different names. You might have heard it called e-juice, digital juice, E-Liquid, liquid, or any other number of names. I have no idea why this particular product has so many different names, but I guess it’s because it’s a social thing. Smoking and drinking also go by many different names.

The thing to remember is that whatever people call it, vape juice contains the same main ingredients in the vast majority of cases, and the names have no bearing on what the juices contain. They aren’t talking about slightly different products when they refer to it by different names.

The ingredients

Atypical e-juice will contain a mix of vegetable glycerine (VG), propylene glycol (PG), nicotine, and flavouring. Each of these ingredients has a different role to play in the juice.


Because people enjoy different experiences from their juices, you will find that you can buy e juices in different concentrations of VG to PG, nicotine levels, and flavouring. For example, Mix Up eLiquid E Liquid contains 70% vegetable glycerine, 30% propylene glycol, and zero nicotine to allow you to put in your own personal preference levels of nicotine. It also comes in a range of flavours. However, another juice, such as I VG salts contains 50% vegetable glycerine, 50% propylene glycol, and 20 mg of nicotine.

The trick when choosing your juices to understand the role that each of these ingredients plays and what your personal preferences are. Here are a few things to think about:

1. Do you want to create thick plumes of vapour? If you do, you should buy a high VG juice, such as Mix Up eLiquid E Liquid. The more VG there is in a juice, the thicker your vapour clouds will be.


2. Do you want a mellow hit at the back of your throat? If you do, again, a high VG juice is best because it is gentle on your throat.

3. Do you want a harsh hit at the back of your throat? Some people prefer a hard hit because it reminds them of smoking. If this is something that you want, then you need to buy a juice that contains at least 50% propylene glycol.


4. What sort of flavour candy/sweet do you enjoy? The flavouring we use in e juice uses the same flavours as those used in sweets and candy. This means that people can often established which vape flavours they are going to like by thinking about which types of candy they enjoy. If you enjoy foam bananas, then it’s likely you’re going to enjoy a banana-flavoured juice.
