The simplicity of eliquid is one of the main benefits of vaping.
E-liquid (also known as e-juice and vape juice) is the substance inserted into an electronic cigarette pod, tank or capsule that gives the e-cig vapour its flavour. E-liquids are an essential product for each and every vaper. They come in a variety of flavours, sizes, nicotine strengths and consistency. E-liquids produce vapour once they have been exhaled and, as opposed to tobacco smoke, the vapour has a pleasant scent.
It’s usually composed of four primary ingredients:
1. Nicotine – Nicotine is a naturally occurring substance found in plants and a number of foods, including aubergines (egg plant), potatoes and tomatoes. Nicotine is what makes vaping such an effective substitute for smoking, as vapers can satisfy their cravings without all the bad stuff associated with tobacco cigarettes. E-liquids are available in a variety of nicotine strengths, so you are able to select how much nicotine you want to vape based on your personal preferences. Nicotine also helps to provide a good throat hit, so if that’s important to you, then you should consider using an e-liquid with high nicotine strength.
2. Vegetable glycerine (VG) – used in many food and pharmaceutical products.
3. Propylene glycol (PG) – found in everything from fizzy drinks to prescription drugs.
