Are you new to e-cigarettes? Are you thinking about transitioning to vaping from cigarette smoking and you’re looking for more information on e-liquids? Or maybe you’re just in need of a revision. In any case, let’s see what we have!
E liquid is an essential part of the vaping experience. When the e liquid is heated in the vaping device, it produces an aerosol, also commonly referred to as vapor. E liquid is often flavored and may contain nicotine, as well as Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG). The combination of these ingredients varies depending on the product.
How can I choose an e-liquid?
Nowadays, there is a wide variety of e-liquids in the market, so the adult vape users can choose the most suitable for them. This can be a complex process. If you’ve just entered the vaping world, make sure you always check that the e liquid you choose is made by legitimate manufacturers so that it adheres to safety standards. Pairing the e liquid with your e cigarette device is crucial for having an optimal vaping experience.
Can vape liquid be made without PG and VG?
E liquid for vaping is most usually made with PG and VG, though other compounds can also act as aerosol formers. PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin) are the most common ingredients to form the e liquid base. Nicotine and flavourings are then added to that base.
How is nicotine measured in e-liquid?
Nicotine in e liquid is typically measured in mg/ml, with bottles or packaging commonly indicating the amount of nicotine there is, in relation to the total amount of e liquid in the bottle.
How are flavors added to e liquid?
Often, flavorings are already mixed to be directly added to an unflavored e-liquid. Ready-made e-liquid will have flavorings already mixed in so there is no need to add additional flavor. Ready-made e-liquid is usually found on prefilled pods. An e-cigarette that offers the prefilled pods option, is IQOS VEEV. The VEEV e-liquids are available in a range of 7 classic and aromatic vaping flavours, so you find the one that suits you!
Should I avoid mixing my own e liquid?
A lot of information can be found online about DIY e-liquid. However following such information is not advised. All aspects of vaping, such as the e-cigarette itself and the e-liquids used with it, are complex products that work best and safest when designed by regulated companies who follow safety standards when making them.
Especially if you have recently switched from smoking to vaping, it is easier to use ready-made e-liquid, like the ones in pod vaping systems. These e-liquids, which are made to be paired with the specific vaping device or kit you have chosen, will surely provide you with a big variety of flavors to choose from.
What are the dangers of e-cigarettes?
E-cigarettes are not risk-free. Many e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is addictive. Keep in mind that smoke-free products are meant to be used by adults, who would otherwise continue smoking or use nicotine products and by no means as a way of quitting smoking.
The best choice to eliminate the health risks associated with tobacco and nicotine use is quitting them altogether.
However, for those adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, a full transition to vaping, could be a better choice compared to smoking.
