What is Vegetable Glycerine?

Friday, 22 April 2016  |  Admin

The name’s Glycerine, Vegetable Glycerine, licence to kill any cloud chasing contest around. You might have seen the term "Vegetable Glycerine" (or VG) bandied about on our site, but what is it and why do you need it in your E-Juice?

VG = Vegetable Glycerine

Cloud chasers look no further, PG may be great at hitting your throat, but VG is the only way to hit your rivals in the face with some serious clouds. But just what is this mist-ical cloud-summoning base?

  • 100% Organic extract
  • Thick viscosity gives fuller vapour
  • Colourless
  • Odourless
  • Naturally sweet tasting
  • Safe for human digestion
  • Commonly used in food and medicines

Very Good Vapour

VG is the must-have juice option for those who want vaping to come with a hefty dose of vapour, not only does it make clouds like no one’s business, it also has no reported cases of allergic reactions as with PG, and being 100% natural, it’s a great choice for even the most sensitive of vapers.

Pros

  • Clouds for days!!!
  • Super smooth vaping
  • “Fuller” feel to vapour
  • Enhances sweet flavourings
  • 100% natural
  • No allergic reactions
  • High ratio and 100% VG mixes are easy to find

Cons

  • Weaker “throat hit” – 100% VG mixes gives very little
  • Sweet taste can affect the depth of savoury flavours
  • Can clog up devices
  • Slower wick absorption
  • Lower nicotine absorption - may require a higher level than PG

Cloudy With A Chance Of Sweetness

Completely natural, naturally sweet and great clouds, naturally. VG is the first choice for many a vaper and unlike PG which can be considered irritating in high amounts, VG is super smooth on the inhale and totally unrivalled on the cloud-creating side of things. 100% organic mixes made with VG only bases and all-natural flavourings even make vaping available to those with particular diets or who of a more sensitive disposition, so you’ve got no reason not to give it a go!

If you’re not one to take sides in the battle of the bases, you don’t have to! The perfectly balanced mix if 50/50 PG/VG is a popular choice and gives you the best of both worlds. If you prefer more flavour and throat-hit you can ramp the PG up to 80% for a tasty but still cloudy vape. Cloud Chasers will want to stick to 70%+ VG e-juices, but if your title of champion chaser isn’t resting on your VG ratio then how you vape is totally up to you!
