I have been smoking for 47 years and 8 months ago I stopped and started Vaping .
Well it turns out it is the best thing I have done as my health has improved vastly no more coughing and spluttering in the morning my energy levels have shot up and I generally feel 20 years younger.
My hair teeth an nails are a lot healthier than before and my home smells lush no more minging ashtrays full of butts and the stale smell of tobacco.
I would recommend any who smokes to try this & see for themselves the major improvements it will bring to you..
I hope you find this of help Combustion is the past Vaping is the future :)
The main ingredients of vape juice :
e liquid ingredients
What Are E Liquid Ingredients?
So we know e-cigs don’t have actual tobacco or the other harmful ingredients (tar, carcinogens, etc.) that you find in regular cigarettes. Instead, e-cigs use a liquid nicotine solution known as e liquid or e juice. But what exactly is e liquid? There are four basic e liquid ingredients; water, nicotine, flavourings and a propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine base (or sometimes a mixture of PG and VG). Let’s break down the e liquid ingredients in detail.
E Liquid Ingredients:
Propylene Glycol (PG) – this is used as a base or carrier for the nicotine and flavour's. PG is widely used as a food additive and can be found in many things that we regularly eat. PG can also be found as an additive in some medicines.
Vegetable Glycerine (VG) – also used as a base or carrier for the nicotine and flavours in e-liquid. VG is a plant based substance and is sometimes made from coconut or palm oil. VG is also widely used as a food additive.
Water – no explanation needed
Flavourings – food flavourings are added to create a specific taste
Nicotine – most brands offer anywhere from 0mg of nicotine to 24mg of nicotine in their e-liquid
Difference Between Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine. PG Vs. VG.
Should I vape PG or VG? This is a question that we’re asked multiple times per day. Let’s break it down:
Propylene Glycol (PG)
Most common e-liquid base due to the substance being odourless and flavorless, thus not affecting the taste of the e-juice
Provides a stronger throat hit, more similar to a real cigarette. But it can also dry out your mouth and throat.
Thinner consistency and produces thinner vapour clouds.
Can cause allergic reactions (tingling of the throat). If this happens, switch to VG.
Vegetable Glycerine (VG)
Thicker solution and produces a much thicker vapour cloud
Provides a weaker, smoother throat hit. Doesn’t irritate the throat as much as PG.
Due to thicker consitency, VG can cause a phlegmy build up in throat/mouth.
Has a slightly sweet taste and can mask e-liquid flavors
A lot fewer allergic reactions are reported from vapers using VG
Is E Liquid Bad For You?
Based on the e liquid ingredients, should you feel safe to vape? Both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine (PG and VG) are considered “safe for human consumption” and are found in tons of food items we eat on a regular basis. It’s important to note that some people experience allergic reactions to PG usually characterized by tingling of the throat and/or irritation elsewhere on the body. If this happens, you should switch to a VG based e-liquid.
