Vape Juice Bases: PG vs. VG

Electronic cigarettes function by heating a liquid, commonly known as e-liquid, e-juice, or vape juice to produce a vapor that is then inhaled by the user. In addition to nicotine, e-juice usually contains the following ingredients: PG (propylene glycol) or VG (vegetable glycerin), or a combination of both, and flavoring. Although both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin serve as a base in many vape juices, since the latter is far superior to the former, at Prime Vapor, we use VG exclusively in all our formulations.

Vegetable glycerin is an all-natural substance

Vegetable glycerin is an all-natural substance made from plant oils, such as soy, coconut, and palm. Perfectly safe for human consumption, the highly-viscous liquid has a wide array of applications, including cosmetics, food, and pharmaceuticals. The substance is clear and odorless, with just a hint of sweetness. Similar to VG, propylene glycol is a clear, odorless liquid, with a milder sweet flavor; however, since PG is a synthetically produced cracked hydrocarbon that is a close relative to anti-freeze, we do not use it in any of our e-juices.

VG-based formulas produce thick, dense vapor

The high level of viscosity makes VG an ideal base for vapers seeking thicker and denser cloud production. With a VG base, vapers can enjoy the rich flavors longer while simultaneously experiencing a milder throat hit, which makes it perfect for vapers with asthma or respiratory issues. VG bases are also popular among vapers with an allergy to PG.

Prime Vapor vape juices deliver a solid a throat hit

Due to the way we have created the flavors in our formulations, Prime Vapor vape juice users experience a throat hit that is as intense, if not more, than PG based formulas. Vapers, especially ex-smokers who have transitioned to vaping, can still enjoy a pronounced throat hit with 100% VG vape juice.
