Now that you have your vape, you'll need some quality eliquid to go with it. You might even have already asked yourself, "should I go with the PG liquid or the VG liquid?". If you've done a bit more research, you might be thinking, "maybe I should get a custom blend, 60/40?". If you're just getting your feet wet, though, you probably reread those last few sentences a couple of times looking for context clues. Don't worry, Victory Vape, one of Australia's most trusted suppliers of eliquid online, has got the info you need to differentiate between the two.
What in The World Do “PG” And “VG” Mean?
A good question with a straightforward answer. These terms refer to the main ingredients in the eliquid. In addition to water and some flavouring, eliquid will also have either vegetable glycerine (VG) or propylene glycol (PG). Still confused as to how that affects your e-cigarette experience?
Vegetable glycerine is a heavier and thicker liquid. It has a sweet taste, and aids in creating large amounts of vapour. If it wasn't immediately obvious by the name, these eliquids are made from vegetables. Particularly, soy, coconut oil, and palm oil. Due to its increased viscosity, these eliquids require devices that can wick the juice readily. The upsides are quite worth it for some, however. Vegetable glycerine offers a smoother feeling on the throat and provides those increased amounts of vapour necessary for blowing big clouds (if that's what suits your fancy).
Contrast Propylene Glycol, which is thinner compared to vegetable glycerine. It is derived from propylene oxide. On its own it is colourless, nearly odourless as well, and iIt produces less vapour. Among vapers, it is used to provide the vaunted "throat hit", an experience described as being similar to smoking tobacco from a traditional cigarette. Propylene glycol based liquids are also thought to carry flavours just a bit better than their vegetable glycerine based counterparts. There is, however, a higher (though still minor) rate of allergic reactions from those who use propylene glycol based liquids. We carry e-liquid online that contains various proportions of both vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol to accommodate those who might have allergic reactions like skin irritation, rash, or throat inflammation.
As implied above, it's not necessary to get an e-liquid that's 100% VG or PG; one can find a mix of varying proportions, based on their personal preferences. Mixes that are 70PG/30VG are said to be the most popular, but in the end, it all comes down to individual taste. It's also important to note that by and large, both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine are safe for human consumption. They are commonly used in food and other products like pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Most of the premium USA e-liquids that we stock at Victory Vape tend to be higher in VG than PG. This is a natural progression as vapers have taken up subohm vaping at higher wattages, thus PG is not as necessary to provide satisfactory throat hit.
When it comes to finding premium USA e-liquid in Australia, Victory Vape is the supplier with the broadest selection. In addition to a large variety of brand names, we have a range of custom house e-liquids made with quality, food-grade vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol. We create our blends 50PG/50VG, but can customise proportions based on client preferences. When selecting the best e liquid in Australia, we're the way to go. Check out our products to learn more.
