Vegetable Glycerin is a natural mixing agent which will control the amount of vapour production within an e-liquid. It has its roots embedded in vaping, long before vaping was actually a thing, as the liquid used in smoke machines, movies, stage sets and others.
VG’s vaporisation properties make it a perfect ingredient for use inside e-liquids as it is non-toxic. The higher the ratio of VG, the denser the vapour production will be. In addition to this, e-liquids which have a higher VG content will mix less with the nicotine giving a smoother throat hit which makes them the perfect choice for use with sub ohm vape kits.
I have made a short list of products containing Vegetable Glycerin for your consideration also, which can be found below. You may find VG is in more products than you might expect:
- Dairy and Protein Foods such as cheese, yoghurt and powdered milk or cream.
- Processed Vegetables and Fruits. Vegetables and fruits generally don't contain glycerin unless they're processed. ...
- Grains and Baked Goods.
Now we know what the basis of each e-liquid is, what ratios can I get e-liquids in and how will they affect my vaping experience?
This will all depend on the manufacturer as they will create e-liquids with the best ratio of PG/VG for their flavours. You can get a variety of e-liquids with ratios of 80% PG/20% VG all the way up to 0% PG/100% VG.
As mentioned above, various mixing ratios of PG and VG will give different results such as a harsher throat hit, denser vapour and even stronger flavour. We recommend visiting one of our vape shops in Wembley, Camden and Fleet Street or our 5 brand new vape shops across London in partnership with Morrisons supermarket. So search for a vape shop near me as our ejuice bars are fully stocked with vape juices and are available for you to try.
