E Liquids and E Juices
eLiquid is the fluid which goes into vaporizers/electronic cigarettes. E Juices, are what provides the nicotine solution and flavoring to e-cig. Essentially, eLiquids are what create the vapor that you exhale, which mimics the traditional smoke from cigarettes. In essence, vaporizers “vaporize” e-liquid and e-juices. Typically eLiquids contain nicotine, unless they are ZERO MG liquids. As a result, not all e-liquids are filled with nicotine. Some liquids are nicotine free. Liquids typically come in different strengths - ranging from 0mg to 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, or even 24mg.
eLiquid typically uses a number of ingredients in order to create the flavor you enjoy. The base of the Liquid contains things like PG and VG, or Both. Most eLiquids have either a 70/30 PG/VG ratio, or a 50/50 PG/VG ratio. PG and VG are typically combined with natural/artificial flavors, which creates the unique and enjoyable recipes you enjoy.
PG is a flavoring carrier used in food. It’s an ingredient in food flavoring, and also used as an addictive in medicines. Typically, a PG and VG blend is smoother than a 100% PG base. PG is considered non-toxic.
VG is a vegetable based liquids, and is sweet and thick. Because it’s so thick, it’s hard to smoke it effectively on it’s own. Typically, VG is mixed with PG. VG is considered non-toxic

Vaping is the use of a vaping device. There are many devices, but vaping is a universal term for the process of actually using the device.
How are e-liquids used?
All vaping devices work in the same way: a battery powers a coil, which turns an e-liquid solution, into an aerosol. Different vaping devices apply these principles in different ways - and it’s the differences in the devices that create new experience and methods of vaping. Regardless of how/what device is used for vaping, they all require usage of an e-liquid.
Why should I vape?
Vaping is similar to the ritual and sensation of smoking, but doesn't have some of the negative side-effects. Vaping provides a broader genre of flavors as opposed to smoking - due to the flavors in the e-liquids.
Is vaping an E-Liquid safe?
Unfortunately due to federal restrictions we can't talk about this. But, there's plenty of research on the internet about this.
What are PG or VG E Liquids
PG and VG, are ingredients in e-liquids which create the vapor. Both are used in a wide array of products. PG provides the stronger throat hit, but with less visible vapor. VG has a sweet taste, and produces a visible vapor cloud. Some vapers hate PG, because it irritates their throat/lungs, and instead choose a VG e liquid. Many e-liquids contain a blend of PG and VG.
What E Liquid Should I Get?
There's no one-size fits all answer. The best thing to do is try out a few different e-liquids and see what happens. Try a flavor you like, and then once you like it, experiment with the nicotine levels etc. The strength of the E-liquid you choose will depend on your personal preference. There are two styles of vaping. Some vaprs prefer a stronger nicotine eliquid, but on a low powered device. If you want to vape less, use a stronger e liquid. If you find you're taking too much nicotine from the amount you vape - move to a less strong ejuice.
