E-cigarettes are filled with e-liquids that vaporise when warmed up by the atomiser. This e-liquid is said to be made of propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine and in some cases it is said to be a mix of both. However there are some advantages when using a cheap e juice that is made up of only vegetable glycerine.
If you are looking for a slightly sweet taste in your e-liquid without having to add any artificial sweeteners, then vegetable glycerine is the perfect ingredient for you. It gives the e-liquid a bit more delectable in fruit and juice liquids. When using propylene glycol, additional artificial sweeteners or sorbitol will be added. These sweeteners are approved by the FDA and no side effects of using them have been discovered as of yet.
The most important and satisfying part of using the e-cigarette is the flavour hitting your throat when you inhale and exhale. This is why the vegetable glycerine is preferred over propylene glycol which leaves a lasting flavour in your throat and mouth while the propylene glycol tends to fade away with its thin vapour that disappears as quickly as it appears. When you use vegetable glycerine, you will find that it gives a thick vapour that is filled with flavour. So the addition of this component gives a better and more satisfying hit.
Acceptable by the Body
The addition of propylene glycol gives an allergic reaction to your body which can be avoided when it is diluted with the vegetable glycerine. This is the reason why there a decrease in the ration of propylene glycol and an increase in the ratio of vegetable glycerine will decrease the chances of allergic reactions. There are also companies which manufacture e-liquids that are said to contain only vegetable glycerine 100%. If you suffer from irritated throat when you use the e-cigarette, it means you are allergic and it would be better if you choose an e-liquid that has less propylene glycol or is 100% made of vegetable glycerine. Whichever be the option, you will have to try it out for yourself to see which you like the best. Despite the various preferences, a VG based e-liquid is a more healthy option than the rest.
For those who wish to have the best of both world many companies manufacture e-liquids that contain a mixture of both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine. If you have tried both and are perfectly fine with either, then you might want to try a combination of the two and see how it works for you.
When it comes to choosing the e-liquid there is no definite answer. There are hundreds of flavours available and you can experiment with all of them till you settle with the best one. Before buying make sure to check the product and packaging information which mentions the base that is used in making the e-liquid. Based on your preference and taste, you can make your decision.
