What is VG/PG Ratio?
Wednesday, 20 April 2016 | Admin
PG = Propylene Glycol. VG = Vegetable Glycerine. Ratio = The quantitative relation between two amounts.
...What, you want to know more?
VG, PG, Easy Peasy
Alright, if you insist. Put simply, the VG/PG Ratio is the amount of VG and PG you have in your e-juices. This is pretty important information for vapers with discerning tastes so brands will have it clearly printed on their bottles making it easy for you to find your preferred amount, see below to find out what sort of levels you should expect.
First things first, though, not sure what VG/PG even means? Allow us to enlighten you:
This 100% organic product is derived from vegetables (wait...does that make vaping one of our 5 a day?!) and is naturally sweet tasting, making it a good choice for the cakey, caramel or dessert flavours out there.
Used in medicines, this organic compound is great for carrying flavour and gives a ‘throat hit’ that ex-smokers might find similar to traditional cigarettes.
The Golden Ratio
You don’t have to pick a ratio at all if you don’t want to, because 100% PG and 100% VG juices are available (though 100% VG may be easier to find). For the perfect vaping experience that combines clouds with flavour, though, a neat balance of the two is key. Ratios are generally based on VG content, with most of them erring towards equal VG/PG content or higher VG.
You may also come across Max VG, which does not mean 100% VG, confusingly enough. Max VG levels vary from brand to brand and means the maximum level of VG that they as a brand are prepared to put in your juices. So, one e-juice might offer a Max VG level of just 60% while another will ramp it up to 99%, neither of them are actually offering 100% though, so keep that in mind if you want to avoid any disappointment!
