Basics of E-Liquid

Whats The Difference Between the Propylene Glycol and the Vegetable Glycerin?

You re probably wondering why manufacturers had to create two different types of e-juice, or why didnt they just mix the two together to create one type of e-juice. Many manufacturers have decided to create e-juice using vegetable glycerin because a lot of people are allergic to propylene glycol.

Aside from the hypersensitivity issue, the quality of the two is also different. Vegetable glycerin produces a lot of vapor, but it isn’t that sweet. Propylene glycol on the other hand produces sweeter but lesser vapor.

E-Juice Strength

By strength, we mean the nicotine content. There are different strength levels to choose from. E-cigarette users should choose an e-juice based on their capability to handle it. There are some e-juices that contain no nicotine, and there are some that contain up to 4.8%, although many experience e-cigarette smokers have reported that any e-juice that has a nicotine content higher than 2.6% is very hard to find. The nicotine content is usually indicated in milligrams/milliliter, but converting it into percentages isn’t hard.All one has to do is place a decimal point in between the digits. So for example you bought an e-juice that had a nicotine content of 26mg/mL. In percentage, the nicotine content of the e-juice is around 2.6%.

If you’ve never used an electronic cigarette before, and you dont know what type of e-juice you should buy, we have a guide that can help you. The average nicotine content of an e-juice is around 1.2%-2.4%, but not everyone can handle a nicotine content of that magnitude. If you’re not sure on just how much you can handle, we suggest that you buy an e-juice that has a nicotine strength of about 2.4%, and an e-juice that has zero nicotine. If the e-juice with the 2.4% strength is too much for you, all you have to do is add a bit of zero nicotine e-juice to the solution to dilute the previous one.
