Below is quite an extensive guide on pretty much everything you need to know about vaping, whether you are a newbie or a veteran, hopefully you’ll find some of the information useful.
eCigarettes… which one is for me?
Well, over the last 10 years eCigarettes have become extremely popular, and there’s definitely an array to choose from!
Our Highly trained and knowledgeable staff will talk through all available options with you and make recommendations based on the information you provide.
We recommend that beginners start out small with a pen or pod device and if you wish later on move to a bigger “Mod & Tank” device once you have established yourself as a vaper and have a good general understanding of doing it.
What are all of those choices when ordering eLiquid? 40/60, 20/80, 50/50?? What does it all mean??
eLiquid is a mixture of varying amounts of about 4 different ingredients. Nicotine, PG (Propylene Glycol), VG (Vegetable Glycerin) and flavouring. Some liquids can have additional ingredients, but for the most part, these are the only ingredients in our eLiquid
The amount of nicotine is dependent on the strength of nicotine in your e-liquid, but let’s say it is around 2% nicotine base. Somewhere around 10-20% of your eLiquid will be flavouring. That leaves 78-88% of the liquid in your bottle for fillers, which dilute the flavouring and the nicotine. This is where PG and VG come in, and depending on how you like your vape, that determines the percentage of PG and VG in your e-liquid.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a thick, sweet liquid. VG produces luscious clouds of vapor. VG also imparts a sweeter taste to your liquid.
Propylene Glycol (PG) is a much thinner tasteless liquid. PG produces more of a “throat hit” than VG does, which simulates the feel of smoking better. PG also has a higher rate of sensitivity for some people, meaning that some people just can’t use PG in their vape.
Our recommendation is to start out with a 50/50 mix of PG and VG in your eLiquid. Then after you have tried it, you can make adjustments on your next order. If you aren’t getting enough throat hit to satisfy you, then next time try a 30/70 VG/PG mix. If you want more pillowy clouds of vapour, then maybe a 70/30 VG/PG mix is for you.
Our PG/VG ingredients are 99%+ Pharmaceutical Grade.
