E-Cig Frequently Asked Questions
What is E-liquid?
E-liquid is a combination of Vegetable Glycerine (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), flavorings, and sweetener and nicotine (when applicable). These organic components come together to create e-liquid! It goes inside an electronic cigarette’s tank to deliver nicotine and flavor the consumer.
What is TPD?
The Tobacco Products Directive, TPD, is an EU directive that was passed and became law on May 20, 2016. It directs the sale of electronic cigarette products to meet certain criteria. Find more information here.
What is VG & PG?
VG is vegetable glycerine. It is also known as glycerol and is a simple polyol compound. It is colorless, unscented, and a sweet tasting, non-toxic viscous liquid.
PG is Propylene Glycol, also known as propane-1, 2-diol. It is synthetic and organic. This compound is a viscous liquid without color, is nearly odorless and provides faint sweetness.
You will find both VG and PG every day in products like toothpaste, ice cream, and chapstick. You will even find them in prescribed asthma treatments.
What Ratio should I get and their best use?
There is an effect on the consistency between the different ratios of VG and PG. VG is a thicker liquid that will create more vapor than PG. PG will carry the flavour. Thus, the more VG percentage (80% for example) the more vapor produced. The higher PG percentage (50%) the stronger the taste is produced.
80/20 vg/pg will deliver the most vapor with a faint sacrifice of flavour.
65/35 will deliver the best balance of both vapor and flavour.
50/50 delivers the most flavour and will deliver a throatier hit.
What is nicotine?
Nicotine is a parasympathomimetic stimulate that is potent and part of the nightshade plant family. Nightshade plants include tomatoes, potatoes, cauliflower and eggplants among others. In mammals, moderate nicotine use acts as a stimulant.
What is a good nicotine strength for me?
Choosing the right level of nicotine is objective. The following is a rule of thumb graphic for reference.
What is steeping?
Steeping is the process of allowing e-liquid to naturally oxidize over time to reach full flavour. Typically, it is a waiting game. The longer e-liquid is allowed to steep, the more potent the flavour will be.
