Vape Lingo

What are vapers talking about?

According to a study from Journal of the American Heart Association "smokers who have switched to vaping live longer than those or continue smoking". With vaping, there are significantly fewer toxins going into your body than with traditional cigarettes, so that can't be a bad thing!

More so, many e-juice brands put their juices through rigorous amounts of quality control to ensure their products are made only from pure ingredients and not added chemicals or colors. 

When doing your research you may be coming across words you're not quite familiar with, we'll explain some of the common ones.

So, keep reading!

E-cig Lingo

Vaping has become a culture with its own traditions, art, and language. If you're new to this lifestyle, you're probably embarrassed by your confusion with all the terms.

But needn't worry because we've got your back. 


The act of smoking an e-cig.

All Day Vape

This term is used to imply your favor of one vape juice over all others. For example, "Watermelon Hard Candy Flavor is so good, it's my all day vape."

Vape Juice, E-Liquid, and E-Juice

These terms all describe the flavored liquid your e-cig will be converting into vapor. They are typically made from a VG or PG base (we'll cover those next.) Then nicotine and flavoring are added.

VG (Vegetable Glycerin) E-Juice

VG e-liquids are thick and could possibly clog your e-cig if you're not using them with the right device.

VG is sweet on its own, so it'll sweeten any juice it's paired with. It's meant to smooth out the throat hit, sweeten the taste and create more vapor when vaped. The cons are you could possibly experience phlegm or vapor's tongue with this base.

PG (Propylene Glycol) E-Juice

PG e-liquids have a thin, runny consistency that stops them from clogging your e-cig.

Your vapor will be strong with PG because it can sometimes create a raspy effect in your throat, but it does carry the flavoring slightly more. 

VG/PG Ratio

As you'll see below, the best vape juices are mixes of VG and PG. Common blends are 50/50, 30PG/70VG, and 70PG/30VG.

Read about the differences because the blend can change your whole vaping experience.

Maximum VG Blend

A Maximum VG or Max VG e-juice will contain at least 85% VG typically. These get mixed with PG to even out the flavors.

Max VG simply means maximum vapor. You'll get your biggest clouds with this juice.


A vaping tool that looks like a regular cigarette.


A description of how much vapor you're able to produce. Also, cloud chasing is a legitimate sport.


The nicotine content will be printed on your vape juice labels. You will see it listed in a percentage format or in milligrams (mg.)

For better understanding, a juice with 12 mg is the same as one with 1.2%. Just as a 6 mg blend is equal to .06%. Our ejuices are rated mg/ml. 

Vapor's Tongue

Vaper's tongue is when your tongue feels a little gritty and numb and nothing seems to taste the way it should. There are a few reasons a vapor will have this condition.

The most common is when you've spent too much time vaping one flavor. Your taste buds become desensitized and bored with that e juice. Avoid vapor's tongue by switching your flavors up.
