There is a lot of talk out there today about how PG and VG ratios affect the vaping experience. For those of you who already vape, you probably already know, PG stands for Propylene Glycol and VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin. These are the two main mixing components used in e-liquid today. Depending on the equipment you will be using, this will effect the one you may want to go with. Those of you who like to vape using either an electronic cigarette or MOD may realize that the use of the VG will alter the flavor, slightly making it sweeter. This use of the VG can also wear your device out sooner than if you use PG.
PG is a completely non-toxic liquid that has no flavor making it a great choice if you don't want the flavor of the liquid your using altered in any way. It has some great properties. For example, due to its non-organic origin, it has a longer shelf-life than VG. It also has a higher heat threshold due to its chemical makeup. This is something to keep in mind when you are thinking about the appropriate wattage to use for your vaping deice. Again, something to definitely keep in mind when you're shopping for a new e-liquid at The Sauce LA.
Some liquids that you can find today contain a mixture of both VG and PG. These juices can be good as long as you understand which mixture carries your other ingredients better. The specific purpose of the PG and VG is to carry the nicotine and other flavor components through the device or delivery system. Something to keep in mind when shopping for an e-juice that you will enjoy is that PG is much thinner and makes it much less likely to gum up your device. The thicker VG is much more likely to stick to the coils, wicks, and the inside of the tank that you may be using. This will mean you will need to clean these components more frequently.
Most VG based products have been known to not work as well with some of the smaller devices with smaller coils. This is the main reason that most vapers are more fond of PG based liquids and like to use rebuildable atomizers for this reason. If you prefer VG liquid, you may want to consider using a sub-ohm tank due to the fact they can withstand much higher voltage and will help you to enjoy this type of product more. Some people have found that they are allergic to PG, this is the main reason that there are products with VG only. Some of the symptoms of a reaction to PG can include hives, throat irritation, and others. Some people have been known to mix their own e-liquids. This allows the DIY vaper total creative control. What we mean here is you will be able to experiment and find what mixtures work best for you, as well as find some mixture ratios that can work better than others for specific flavors.
If you are someone who has recently started to vape and enjoy it, there is no better time than now to find some new ways to enjoy it to the fullest. More people are building their own MODs, coils, etc. due to the many different options you have when it comes to customization. The same is true with mixing the VG and PG ratios with your favorite flavors. This can unlock a whole new way for you to enjoy vaping more than you may already have been.
