What are E-liquids

E-liquids, also known as vape juice or e-juice, are the fluids used in electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and vaporizers to produce vapor. When heated by the device, the e-liquid is vaporized, allowing the user to inhale it, mimicking the act of smoking without the combustion of traditional tobacco. E-liquids contain a mixture of the following main ingredients:

  • Propylene Glycol (PG): A colorless, odorless liquid that serves as a carrier for the nicotine and flavorings in the e-liquid. PG produces a more pronounced "throat hit," simulating the sensation of smoking.
  • Vegetable Glycerin (VG): A thicker, sweeter liquid than PG. VG is known for generating denser vapor clouds. E-liquids can have different PG to VG ratios, influencing the vapor production and throat hit.
  • Flavorings: These are food-grade additives that give e-liquids their diverse range of tastes, from tobacco and menthol to fruit, dessert, and many others.
  • Nicotine: Many e-liquids contain nicotine, but there are also options without nicotine. The nicotine strength in e-liquids varies, allowing users to choose based on their preference or to reduce their nicotine consumption gradually.

Freebase Nicotine e-liquid:

Freebase e-liquids contain freebase nicotine, the purest form of nicotine after its natural salts are removed. Vapers often opt for freebase e-liquids due to their compatibility with a wide spectrum of devices, from low to high-power setups. They offer a consistent throat hit, particularly at reduced nicotine levels, enhancing the overall vaping experience.

Nicotine Salts e-liquid:

Nicotine salts are a form of nicotine derived from tobacco leaves, offering a smoother hit compared to freebase nicotine, especially at higher concentrations. They are rapidly absorbed, providing a quick nicotine satisfaction similar to traditional cigarettes. Many transitioning smokers opt for nicotine salts in pod-based systems or low-power devices because they mimic the sensation of smoking, making it potentially easier for them to switch from cigarettes to vaping.
