Nicotine and flavors are very concentrated and should be diluted to get a nice mix.
Note that the PG is also a conservative.
- How to calculate PG percentage?
There are differences between PG and VG.
They have a different taste, a different viscosity that impacts on vaping sensations.
Most e-liquids available on the market have a PG / VG ratio. The most common are 70/30, 50/50 or 30/70 e liquid base mix.
Most e juice flavors are in PG.
1- How to make vape juice with PG?
Propylene glycol is a diol, an organic chemical compound, for use in the food industry, tobacco, care products.
It is used in topical, oral, injectable and inhaled by the pharmaceutical industry.
The PG does not alter the flavor unlike vegetable glycerin.
It further provides a more consistent “throat hit” (contraction of the throat), which for some can turn into a real irritation.
This phenomenon is rare but some users have developed an allergy to PG and now favor a larger ratio in VG.
Content in most of the vaping liquids, PG is a clear, fluid, tasteless and odorless preservative.
2- How to make homemade vape juice with glycerin?
Vegetable glycerin, often derived from vegetable oils, coconut, soy…, is soft, sweet but more viscous than PG.
A high rate of VG permeate less quickly atomizer wick and will tend to alter the flavors.
That’s why we recommend increasing the dosage of flavor if you use a basic high VG ratio.
However, the VG is now adopted by many vapers especially by users of dripper (without atomizer tank), fans of pretty clouds.
How to flavor vape juice at home?
There are many varieties of food flavorings that are easily found in commerce.
Nevertheless, it is important to select the right flavor concentrates to vaporize.
Most flavors are not intended to be inhaled and present potential risks to the vaper.
We therefore advise you to buy specific flavors for vaping.
The average dosage of a liquid flavor is 10 to 20%.
You just have to follow the recommendations of the manufacturers.
Most of those flavors are free of diacetyl and for many, acetyl propionyl and acetoin to ensure safe use.
Furthermore, we make sure to keep us informed of product developments and studies to ensure appropriate flavors.
