Difference between PG and VG e-liquid May 26 2014, 0 Comments

When you first get started in the world of vapes, the first things you'll think about when looking to purchase an e-liquid for your vape pen will be flavor and nicotine level. After that you'll notice that some e-liquids are PG, some VG, and some a mixture of both. What do these terms mean?

Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a thick liquid that tends to produce large, glorious clouds of vapor. It also tends to be sweet tasting.

Propylene Glycol (PG) is a thinner liquid. It tends to help produce more of a throat hit, which is desired for those who are looking to simulate the effects of smoking. There are some people who are sensitive to the effects of PG, and must use VG. 

There are also blends of VG and PG e-liquids. You should experiment with different ratios to determine exactly what you're looking for. If you're addicted to the thrill of producing large vapor clouds, then you should lean more towards VG. If you're looking for something that better simulates the feel of smoking, go with vaporizer e-liquids that have more PG.
