Things You Need To Know About E-Liquids

Posted by Courtney McElligott on

Electronic cigarettes employ a special solution called e-liquid that gets vaporized by a battery powered atomizer and produces the same sensation of smoking.

A base of PG/VG and flavoring are the two primary ingredients in e-liquids. Liquid nicotine is included in solutions for fulfilling a nicotine replacement role whereas zero-nicotine formulas are meant for smokers wanting to get rid of the substance completely but not yet ready to stop vaping completely.

Bases

The base contributes up to 80-90% of the entire e-liquid formula. The most common diluents being used in electronic cigarette e-liquids are propylene glycol (PG), and vegetable glycerin (VG).All these liquid bases happen to be common food additives used in various pharmaceutical formulations.

Propylene glycol which is slightly less popular than higher VG with the uprising of sub ohm tanks and rdas, is used in asthma inhalers and nebulizers. As it is able to hold water, PG is the substance used for delivering atomized medication.

More PG leads to a stronger throat hit and a more pronounced flavor. As VG is thicker than PG, it is often mixed with PG for producing thicker clouds of vapor or for giving it more consistency. Vegetable glycerin also acts as a low pronounced sweetener.

Most of the pre-mixed e-liquids are sold in ratios of 100% PG, 50PG/50VG, 30PG/70VG, 20PG/80VG.

Flavors

Apart from producing cloud of smoke and throat hit, electronic cigarettes try imitating taste of cigarettes or other fruity and desert flavors.

E-liquids come in a wide range of tobacco flavors like cigar, American light tobacco and clove. Menthol happens to be the most popular flavored cigarette and e-liquids feature so many menthol variants like peppermint, spearmint and ice.

Nicotine

E-liquids containing nicotine come in different concentrations.

Solutions generally contain a strength of 3-24 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of liquid. All of which is based off previous consumption of cigarettes and the nicotine your body has been used to getting. The actual amount of nicotine present in an e-liquid is printed on the bottle or packaging. Often the standard notation of mg/ml gets shortened to a simple mg.

These simple facts can allow to know what you’re using and ultimately be knowledgeable while making purchasing decisions.
