PG & VG: Two Odorless Liquids Joined in Vaping Matrimony
Let’s just say, when Propylene Glycol laid eyes on Vegetable Glycerin, what billowed out was thick, beautiful, sweet smelling vapors.
All terrible jokes aside, PG and VG are two liquids, which play important roles in creating some of your favorite vape juice flavors. When it comes to PG and VG, there is no one-size fits all. Depending on what one personally prefers will determine what ratio of PG and VG will most likely be used.
What exactly is PG:
- → PG stands for Propylene Glycol, a synthetic organic compound.
- → Odorless and colorless, PG is a viscous petroleum by product that is generally recognized as safe by the FDA.
- → PG is a member of the alcohol chemical class, but is not liable to cause intoxication.
- → PG is the partner that does the better job at holding flavor, which is why it is the routinely used suspension fluid for flavor extracts and nicotine.
- → PG has a thinner consistency which means less build up on your coil.
- → If you are a vaper who enjoys a sharper Throat Hit – then higher PG vape is what you’ll be looking for.
- → Many former smokers enjoy the kick sensation at the back of the throat.
What is VG?
- → VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin. The other half in this beautiful match made in the clouds.
- → VG is a natural chemical, derived from vegetable oil, which means it’s vegetarian approved.
- → VG adds that ‘thick’ sensation to your vapor.
- → Slightly sweet taste.
- → Believe it or not, VG is used in/as:
- → → Pet food
- → → Hand cream
- → → Sugar replacement
- → → Toothpaste
- → → Baked goods
- → → For jellies
- → Light hit compared to PG, which makes VG a better fit for sub-ohm vaping.
- → VG increases vapor output at the expense of throat hit and taste.
