What is VG E-Liquid?

Wednesday, 27 April 2016  |  Admin

VG? PG? Ali G? So many G’s!

E-cigs, while not new, are a market that is just taking off and becoming known to the masses. But you don’t want to follow the crowd; you want to lead it. What better way of achieving that status than knowing what you are talking about in regards to vaping and the various elements it entails. If you want to know more about PG, then head this way to have all your questions answered (even the ones you didn’t know you had!) but if you wish to learn about VG E-Liquid, then carry on reading. (But if you’re after information on Ali G, then...wrong place, sorry!)

What is VG E-Liquid?

VG is one of the five components that make up an e-juice. The others are water, nicotine, flavouring and PG. When heated, it becomes a vapour that can then be inhaled. You now know the very basics of what vaping is!

Vegetable Glycerin

An odourless liquid, VG is a natural chemical found in vegetable oil and formally known as Vegetable Glycerine. It can also be located in coconut or palm oil and the FDA have classed it safe for consumption as it has been used widely as a food additive for years and is suitable for vegetarians. We don’t, however, recommend drinking your e-liquid. In fact, we strongly advise against it! VG is not only found in food additives, but other household products such dental care and beauty items.

What do you do with it?

VG is usually mixed with PG as their different consistencies and flavours means blending is the best way to go. VG is a thicker substance with a slightly sweet taste. This reduces the strength of the flavour of any e-liquids, hence why PG is better if you are wanting to focus on taste.

High VG levels do not provide the throat hit that PG is known for. It does, however, form a much better vape cloud and is generally considered to be a smoother blend with a much 'fuller' vapour that many vapers find to be more satisfying on the inhale. 

Is it for me?

Yes? No? Maybe? It all depends on what you are looking for from your vaping experience; the ultimate flavour or the best clouds? If it is the former, a high PG solution is better whereas if you want to be the best cloud chaser, you’re going to need the highest VG you can.

For those with allergy problems with the PG levels, this could prove to be a solution as VG has a very low risk of allergies in comparison. The thicker substance does mean that some consumers suffer from a build up of phlegm after vaping, but this is only a select few. Overall, VG is less likely to have a reaction than PG.

So now you know the pros and cons of using a high VG level blend.
