E-LIQUIDS GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS
E-liquids (also known as vape juice or e-juice) is a liquid that is used with a vaping device. It is heated up and turned into a vapor for inhalation. E-liquids mainly consist of Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), nicotine and food grade flavourings.
Smokers are addicted to smoking cigarettes because of the nicotine substance found in cigarettes. Smoking delivers nicotine by burning tobacco which creates tar and other toxins that are harmful to your health. Vaping can replace this nicotine but without many, or less of, the toxins found in cigarette smoke. If you’re vaping to quit smoking, you’ll have more success using nicotine e-liquid. Vapers have the choice to slowly reduce the strength of nicotine in their e-liquid until they become nicotine-free.
VG (Vegetable Glycerin) & PG (Propylene Glycol) are food-safe liquids that make up the bulk of an e-liquid or vape juice. Propylene glycol creates a throat sensation similar to smoking. A higher ratio of vegetable glycerine gives more vapour.
Different flavours are added for personal preference. These are regulated under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
Nicotine Salt is now the most trending type of e-liquids on the vape market. Nicotine salt is the closes form of nicotine you can find in tobacco leaves. Nicotine salt takes a higher temperature to vaporize which is suitable for those who are highly dependent on nicotine. Nicotine Salt e-liquids produces fewer clouds, smoother nicotine hits, rich flavour experience, and are compatible with pod devices. Due to the high nicotine strengths, it is not recommended to be used with sub-ohm or high-powered devices.
Freebase is the original nicotine e-liquid where the nicotine is in its purest form, meaning that if you increase your nicotine strength you’ll get a stronger throat hit. It is compatible with almost all vape devices but recommended for those who like to take puffs often throughout the day and creating good vapour production.
Sub-ohm nicotine salts include the ingredients found in nicotine salt but in a much lower dosage. Sub-ohm nicotine allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds by allowing you to attain the satisfying nicotine hit and produce big clouds. Sub-ohm nicotine salts are compatible with most vape devices.
Big cloud production – Choose e-liquids that are a higher VG to PG ratio. As mentioned, thicker VG e-liquids produce more denser and bigger clouds.
A strong nicotine hit – Look into grabbing a nicotine salt e-liquid that gives you that extra throat hit and nicotine satisfaction.
Intense flavour hit – Higher PG to VG ratio.
