E-cig juice VG vs. PG
Understanding the differences between VG and PG vaporizing liquid compounds will make all the difference towards your total vaping experience, chemical, and physical knowledge–overall enhancing the pleasure of your favorite vape juice.
VG, also known as Vegetable Glycerin is actually a quite common ingredient, used in many common day food ingredients and even soaps, such as sugar replacements, pet food, and even toothpaste!
Vapor enthusiasts enjoy vegetable oil based e-juices because they’re optimal for ohm-vaping, provide smoother vapes, and are known to be lower in irritant-components, lower toxicity.
VG-based e-juice is unfortunately predominantly known for its common tendency to burn down atomizers, clogging up coils, and even wearing down or destroying tanks. With that being said, it’s worth taking into consideration various VG to PG split-juices, percentages, and why.
Are PG-based e-juices good for you?
If you happen to perhaps be bigger on experiencing the full bold and blast of flavors in your e-juices, then PG e-juices are a great way to go! PG, also known as Propylene Glycol, is a common Petroleum-byproduct, known to be found in various sweeteners, soaps, and other artificial flavor ingredients.
FDA has clearly stated that PG-based e-juices can be extremely harmful to pets and other animals. Unfortunately, PG-based e-juices are known to cause throat irritation and allergic reactions in some cases—much more predominantly than VG based e-liquids.
Unfortunately, PG e-juices also are known to frequently cause dehydration or dry-mouth, so frequent water and fluids are often necessary—again demonstrating why VG may be a much more optimal choice for e-juice liquids.
Keep in mind that with either VG or PG-based e-liquids, side effects may occur, even those e-juices that are split or half and half. However, in such instances it’s worth considering that such symptomology can much rather commonly be associated with nicotine withdraw, as well as the cleansing of the body which is a natural process, and common within the first few weeks–even up to the first few months after quitting smoking.
How to get the most out of your e-liquid mixtures
For vape enthusiasts looking to get the best throat hits, a higher PG mix is ideal. Also, as mentioned previously, higher PG mixes are known for their smoothness. A higher VG mix—even if cut with PG based e-juices—is ideal on the other hand for stealth vaping as the clouds are not as thick, nor nearly as large.
Lastly, those that enjoy “cloud chasing” or competing to make the biggest, thickest clouds a high VG mix is optimal for doing so. Ultimately, how you cut your PG or VG-based e-juices is completely up to you, so take into consideration the various variables of the effects of each, and decide what the best cut might be for you, based on what type of vape experience you’re looking for.
