Customising Your VG/PG Content
Today, we're peeling back the layers of the vape world to help you navigate the treacherous waters of PG/VG ratios and nicotine strengths. For those of you just dipping your toes into the vape pool, the last thing you want is to wade through a swamp of technical jargon. But fear not, for we're about to break it down in a way that even your grandma could understand. Once you grasp the basics, you'll be on your way to choosing the perfect e-liquid.
So, let's explore the differences between VG-based and PG-based e-liquids. With decades of experience, we're practically the Gandalfs of the e-liquid world, ready to bestow our wisdom upon you. When it comes to knowing your e-liquid, you can trust that we've got your back.
Now, let's talk ingredients. E-liquid from four primary essentials, and the stars of the show are none other than PG and VG (or Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine).
Let's start with the PG, which stands for Propylene Glycol. It's a clear, odourless liquid with just a hint of sweetness. PG is a versatile ingredient found in all kinds of products, from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals to household cleaners.
Vegetable Glycerine. This stuff is thicker than a bowl of oatmeal and, just like PG, it's also odourless. As the name suggests, VG is derived from vegetable fat, and it's a popular ingredient in food and pharmaceuticals like medicine and toothpaste.
Now, onto the most exciting part - flavour. There's no one-size-fits-all answer here - it's all about personal preference, just like your favourite pizza toppings. At Chefs, we've got a flavour for every taste bud. Whether you're a menthol maniac, a die-hard blackcurrant fan, or a lover of all things tobacco, we've got you covered. With a gazillion combinations of e-juice flavours out there, you're spoiled for choice. But hold on, don't go crazy with the flavour. Too much of a good thing can turn your e-liquid into a bitter nightmare. You'd be surprised to learn that e-juice only needs a pinch of flavouring to hit the sweet spot.
Now, let's talk PG VG ratios. This stuff is crucial, people! Some of you might be after that perfect throat hit to fulfill that smoking sensation, while others want to feel like they're puffing dragon clouds. If your vape game isn't hitting the spot, you might start eyeing cigarettes again, and that's not what we want.
Both PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin) have their perks and quirks, which is why we mix them up in our e-liquid production.
High PG E-Liquids.
High PG liquids are all about the throat hit – just like the real deal. Since PG is on the thinner side, it pumps out less vapour, making it the sneakiest option for those undercover vapers. It also carries flavour better than VG, so if you're looking for maximum flavour, you might want to think about upping your PG content.
This type of liquid pairs up best with mouth-to-lung vaping, mirroring the smoking style where you take the puff into your mouth before inhaling it into your lungs. Vape pens and starter kits are your go-to gadgets for this kind of vaping, and if you're after that stealthy, subtle vapor game, high PG e-liquids might just be your jam.
High VG E-Liquids
Where the clouds are big and the flavours are bold. High VG liquids are all about maxing out that vapour production, making them a dream come true for anyone chasing clouds. They're like the hulking, beefy bodybuilders of the vape world, built for higher wattage vape kits and sub-ohm devices – also known as 'mods'.
Now, let's talk about the direct-to-lung action. With high VG e-liquids, you're bypassing the mouth and inhaling the vapour straight into your lungs – no detours.
High VG e-liquids deliver a smoother hit than their counterparts, but hold on, there's a catch. These thicker high VG liquids can send your coils into an early retirement. Yep, they tend to burn through those coils much faster than PG based liquids, so you may need to show some extra love to your hardware.
