What is E-Liquid?
E-Liquid is what
is used to produce the vapor in an electronic cigarette to simulate the experience of smoking without the combustion of tobacco cigarettes. The liquid is heated by
the atomizer to deliver the sensation, taste, and feel of smoking.
E-Liquid is the most essential part of the vaping experience and even if
you have the best electronic ,cigarette unless you use a quality E-Liquid you
wont get the best flavor, vapor taste and throat hit you deserve.
E-liquid is made with or without synthetic nicotine, distilled water, propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG)/. It comes in strengths of 24, 21, 18, 12, 8, 4 and 0 milligrams.
What gives E-Liquid it’s flavor?
Natural flavorings from flavor concentrates are usually added to the liquid to give its distinctive flavors. These flavors are usually the same flavoring used to flavor food and candies.
What is E-Liquid made of?
E-Liquid is usually made up of mostly a propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG) mix. The most common mix of the two is 70/30 in favor of (PG). Some people may be allergic to propylene glycol, so a vegetable glycerin base is better suited to their preference. These E-Liquid bases, flavorings, and sometimes a small amount of distilled alcohol or water that are added all contribute to the flavor and throat hit of the E-Liquid.
