Vape Juice and E-liquids- Everything you need to know
Keen minds often tend to search about the how’s and what’s of everything around. To cater the curiosity of the basics of vape juices, we have shared the following information which would be beneficial to first time as well as regular vapers.
With the latest shift in trend from smoking cigarettes to vaping e-liquids, the demand for flavoured e-liquids has gone up considerably.
When you buy e-liquids online, you are given an option to choose the size of the bottle as well as the strength of nicotine. Now, not all vapers would understand what to order and that is exactly what the following content will explain.
The basic ingredients in any e-liquids in India are propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, tobacco, nicotine and added flavourings.
Nevertheless, what is propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, you might think! Let us clear your doubt then
Propylene glycol - The use of propylene glycol, commonly referred to as PG, is to ease the vaporization in vapes and it also for the throat hit while you inhale.
Vegetable glycerin - The formation of clouds of vapours is with the help of this chemical component known as VG. It boosts vapour production that provides a smoother throat hit and embodies hints of sweetness to the mix.
A blend of both the bases is usually found in our e-liquids which gives the best of both. For those who want a better experience of either base with their flavour, can choose their e-liquids accordingly.
Much has been said about nicotine, but the very negligible amount of it is found in e-liquids. In fact, brands like Emist offer their customers an option to order their e-liquids according to the strength of nicotine they prefer, that is, 6mg, 3mg or 0mg(nicotine free).
The taste of vape juices and e-liquids are made up of a combination of artificial and natural flavouring chemicals like
Vanillin -All of us know about this flavouring, the flavour of Vanilla extracted from a vanilla bean.
Tobacco absolute - When tobacco extract is used, it gives a smoky component to tobacco juices.
Linalool - Found in many essential oils, flowers and plants, Linalool brings out a herbal flavouring to the vape juice and e-juice.
Ethyl maltol - We all secretly love this flavour, as it is the same flavour you find in some sweets and candies. It is an organic compound, which produces sweet, bakery-like flavour
Malic acid -This sour and fruity flavor is naturally found in fruits and vegetables, which produces the same flavour effect in e-juices too.
