How do you select the right e-liquid for your vaping style?

zero PG blends

Whether you’re looking to make the life-changing switch from conventional cigarettes to electronic cigarettes or you’re simply looking for a vaping revision, it’s important to understand that the ingredients contents of your e-liquid have the ability to affect the flavor and consistency. That being said, do you know how your chosen ingredient percentage affects your vaping experience?

What are the prime ingredients in e-liquid?

The vapor in your e-cigarette is produced from e-liquid which primarily consists of five ingredients — water, nicotine, flavorings, PG and VG.

PG, also known as Propylene Glycol, and VG, also known as Vegetable Glycerin are non-toxic, organic compounds that are used in an abundance of personal care products and as food additives in many items that we consume — for example, ketchup, soda, ice cream or salad dressing.

How do PG and VG differ?

There are many e-liquids that are available on the market that contain mixtures that vary in the percentage of PG and VG. Although at primevapor.com, we only craft zero PG blends. Needless to say, we believe that it’s important to know what each ingredient has to offer.

PG e-liquids are much thinner in their consistency and are known for producing very little vapor. Since PG is an odorless substance, it usually takes on the tastes of the flavorings it’s paired with. While it offers an overpowering intensity of flavor, this also makes inhalation of PG-rich vapor much harsher on the throat. It’s important to keep in mind that although popular, high-percentage PG e-liquids are known to cause allergic reactions — for example, tingling sensations within the throat.

On the other hand, VG e-liquids possess a thicker consistency which creates a more intense vapor production. They are known for exhibiting an incredible sweetness and can sometimes make flavorings subtle to detect. Although, through trial and error, Prime Vapor has managed to create robust, unique aromas using only VG. Yet, the best part is since the flavor isn’t as intense a PG-rich e-liquid, vapers are able to actually enjoy the vaping experience, the subtle essences and the mild throat hit that zero PG blends offer.

Why does primevapor.com only offer zero PG blends?

We take pride in crafting e-juices using the best, all-natural ingredients. By using VG exclusively, we’ve taken the time to formulate flavors that don’t require any PG. That being said, while it’s true that PG is found in many foods and healthcare products, it’s also found in petroleum and natural gas, whereas VG is a substance made from palm oil.

“We knew that using an all-natural vapor base was preferable to a kissing cousin or radiator fluid.”

PG, why does PrimeVapor.com not use it?

Choosing an e-juice is one of the most important elements impacting your vaping experience. It can be an overwhelming task, since there are numerous e-juice brands available on the market in all the flavors you could possibly imagine.

When determining what the best choice is you may find yourself asking, “what’s the difference?” Since your body is your temple, why not treat yourself to a leading name in the vaping industry?

What are the ingredients that make up vape juice

Vape juice is commonly comprised of four simple ingredients — water, food flavoring, PG/VG and comes with or without nicotine. The terms PG and VG can be confusing for a vaping newcomer. Let’s break it down so it’s easier to understand.

Vegetable glycerin, commonly referred to as VG, is a natural liquid that is made from vegetable oil. VG is frequently found within food production and cosmetic products.

While propylene glycol, commonly referred to as PG, is a clear, odorless compound that is used as a preservative in foods and tobacco products. It is used as an additive in things like toothpaste and cake frosting.

Although it seems that PG in e-cigarettes is rather harmless, there is a reason why PrimeVapor.com leaves this ingredient out of their juice.

PrimeVapor.com vape juice process

PrimeVapor.com only uses the best, all-natural substances when concocting vape juices for their customers. By using VG exclusively, the company has managed to exceed the flavor of PG in e-cigarettes altogether.

“When we were formulating our flavors, we took a long look at what kind of vapor base we should use. At the time, most e-cig flavor producers were using PG,” explained President of Prime Vapor, Bill Fischer.

“It was cheap, did not impart any taste to the flavor formula and produced a large amount of vapor smoke. However, it was a completely synthetic cracked hydrocarbon.”

A hydrocarbon is a compound that is found in petroleum and natural gas.

Although VG is known to have a bit of a bitter aftertaste, Fischer worked alongside chemists to craft a combination of 50 different unique and robust flavored juices that left out the synthetic gas.

“Vegetable glycerin is an all-natural substance made from palm oil,” he added.

We knew that using an all-natural vapor base was preferable to a kissing cousin of radiator fluid.”

Branded as an artisanal e-cig producer by his customers, Fischer has continued to craft smaller, personalized e-juice batches with the consumer in mind.

Vape Juice Bases: PG vs. VG

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.
