So Let's Start With Ingredients..
Blend: PG/VG Ratio can be broken down into percentage of an eliquid solution. Generally speaking, the more PG in the mix the thinner the eliquid is and vice versa, the more VG in the mix the thicker the solution becomes. The thickness of the solution will affect how eliquid vaporize with your equipment. Depending on the setup you have, some equipment aren't made for high VG solution; hence, it will affect the longevity of your e-cig atomizers, cartomizers & batteries etc. What we found is that 80% PG & 20% VG seems to be the best blend ratio because:
- Higher PG produce better throat hit
- Higher PG carries more flavor
- Less abuse on equipment, which translates to less atomizer/cartomizer replacements (More Savings in the long run)
- High VG blend may damage your setup
PG also known as Propylene Glycol
is a colourless, nearly odorless, clear, viscous liquid with a faintly sweet taste. It is a common base solution used in a range of pharmaceutical products and a food additives often referred to as E1520. PG is responsible for carrying the majority of the flavorings and the throat hit factor in your eliquid
solution. WARNING: DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE/ALLERGIC TO Propylene Glycol (PG)
Vegetable Glycerine (VG) like Propylene Glycol, is a common food and pharmaceutical additive. It is used to provide similar functions of bulking, diluting and stabilising a range of common products. It is often referred to as E422 and is known for vapor production.
*Side Note - Throat Hit & Vapor Production*
Throat hit & vapor production with your personally vaporizer:
Throat hit and vapor production can be adjusted by using various types of equpiment. Finding the balance of the two requires experimenting. Generally speaking, using a lower resistant atomizer/cartomizer will increase vapor production and deeper throat hits. A variable voltage device will allow you to vape at higher temperatures by increasing the voltage.
Caution: Do not modify your device and check with your manufacturer for more information.
Due to the recent development of the e-liquid industry there are an infinite number of flavours that can be added to make whatever flavour you desire; However, not all flavorings can be used to produce quality eliquids. Some harmful chemicals that are not suitable for human consumption are Paraffin & Diacetyl. At TheVapeStore.com we only use flavour concentrated that can be added to our ‘pre-mixed’ e-liquids and for those that want to boost the flavour or to add a personal touch please do so with caution. A good source of eliquid guideline can be found at forums such as ecf.
*Side Note - Flavor Coloring*
Anything with nicotine in it may change to a light amberish color. Some of the flavorings will also cause a color change over time as the flavor develops and intensifies (also known as steeping). (Example: Our Ruyan 4 starts off as clear when it is first mixed. Over time, it turns into a deep-reddish amber as it ages.)
Some flavors have a natural color and some (very few) include natural or artificial color in the flavoring extract. This is a very small component added.
ABOUT COLOR and ATOMIZERS or CARTOMIZERS: There is no scientific information study that we know of, however, many people feel that DARKER COLORS or ARTIFICIAL COLORS can lower the life expectancy of an atomizer/cartomizer.
The stimulant in cigarettes and the substance that is addictive in cigarettes is the nicotine. Nicotine is a relatively simple alkaloid, called pyridine. It is naturally formed in tobacco leaves and is released, along with all the related toxic products of combustion, when a cigarette is burned. The nicotine used in our e-liquid, is natural nicotine produced from tobacco leaves. It is produced by mechanically and chemically stripping the nicotine from the leaves and then under the most stringent control, distilled out of solution, using fractional distillation techniques, to produce the highest possible levels of purity.
E-Liquid strenght is essentially how much nicotine the fluid contains in a set volume of e-liquid. We use a basic measure of milli-gram of nicotine per milli-litre of total fluid volume (mg/ml). This is how the solutions are made in the amount of nicotine they contain. This notation was defined to compare directly e-liquid to conventional cigarettes. For example, if a cigarette package states that there is 1.8mg of nicotine in the product, it means that each cigarette contains 1.8mg of nicotine. Therefore in a pack of 20 cigarettes there is a total of 36mg of nicotine. In comparison, an e-liquid of 18mg/ml strength denotes that there is 18mg of nicotine in each milli-litre of fluid. Therefore if you were to ‘vape’ 1ml of this fluid then it would contain the same amount of nicotine as in 10 1.8mg conventional cigarettes. More experienced users are now often referring to the percentage of nicotine in the solution. For example, each 1mg/ml of e-liquid contains by volume 0.1% nicotine i.e. 99.9 parts are diluent and flavouring mixture and only 0.1 parts of the fluid is nicotine. Using this notation, an 18mg/ml e-liquid contains 1.8% nicotine.
