From DIY home brews to the local shops how do you determine which option is the right one and how do you choose the correct e-liquid for your device and desires. Here are some things to keep in mind when you switch from a traditional cigarette to an e-device.
Use Only Reputable Companies
No matter which e-liquid is chosen, all of the recipes are made include the same four ingredients:
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
It can be risky with cheaply made imports or DIY home brews which are below par, so look for high-quality, American made liquids that use USP-grade PG/VG and top-grade nicotine.
Difference Between PG and VG
Once a supplier of USP-grade ingredients has been found, the next step is to determine which PG/VG combination will provide for the most satisfying experience. PG and VG have minor differences in qualities, so it’s important to know how they’ll affect the vaping experience. E-liquids come in different ratios, so here’s what it’s important to know about each of the base ingredients.
PG is the normally base ingredient and is used in thousands of FDA approved consumer products. Thin and tasteless, PG doesn't have any taste of its own and won’t affect the e-liquid flavoring. As it is thinner it will be easily absorbed by the atomizers and won’t build up on the heating element.The bad news is PG doesn't produce as much vapor as VG. Also, a small percentage of vapers report having mild allergic reactions. The reactions include rash and/or upset stomachs.
Like PG, VG is FDA approved and considered safe, but instead of being made in a lab, VG is 100 percent natural — coming from vegetables and plant oils. Being thicker, VG normally produces thicker clouds of vapor and some users find this more satisfying than e-liquids based on PG based products. However, since VG is thicker, it will build up quicker on the atomizer and e-device meaning cleaning the device more often.Read the rest of the article here http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/blog/how-to-know-which-e-cig-liquid-is-best-for-vaping/
