Vape juice provided by your local vape shop is the liquid that fuels electronic cigarettes trough your favourite vape mod, also known as e-cigs. The nicotine, flavouring and other chemicals are diluted in propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG).Vape juice can be bought already made up or purchased separately and mixed with VG/PG.
This allows you to make your blend of flavours and nicotine levels. Most people prefer to buy
ready made vape juice because it has sat long enough for all ingredients to homogenise well
to give an excellent vaping experience.
The ingredients used for e-liquid vary depending on what flavours someone wants to add to
their vape juice. For instance, fruit flavours tend not to have PG/VG mixed in. Instead, they're
suspended in the liquid without flavouring or nicotine. This is because PG and VG can alter
the flavour of what someone wants to vape, and so fruit flavours are made using a specialised
method that doesn't allow PG/VG to mix with it.
During the vaping process, vape juice is heated into vapour. Although there are traces of
chemicals present in the vapour, they are far less harmful than what's found in cigarette smoke.
Vaping vs Cigarettes
Because of how it's made, vape juice is much healthier than tobacco cigarettes.
The ingredients are propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), food flavourings and
optionally, nicotine. Although you can buy e-juice that contains nicotine, most juices on sale do
not contain any nicotine at all.
Because of this, the benefit of replacing regular cigarettes with e-cigs is twofold:
Vaping is less harmful than smoking,
They help people quit smoking altogether.
Nicotine isn't very good for your health, but it is addictive, so people use vape juice containing
nicotine to stop smoking actual cigarettes, which are known to be very bad for you.
The flavourings used in vape juice have been approved by the FDA for human consumption even
when inhaled, so you don't have to worry about vape juice containing any nasty chemicals that
could give you cancer or other illnesses. Vaping has helped many people stop smoking
altogether because the other chemicals in cigarette smoke - carbon monoxide and
tar - are non-existent in vape juice.
Variety in the mix:
There are different strengths of nicotine in vape juice available depending on how much
nicotine someone smokes per day:
3mg-equivalent to light cigarettes
6mg-equivalent to medium cigarettes
12mg-equivalent to strong cigarettes
18mg-equivalent to very strong or heavy cigarettes
Although nicotine is present in vape juice, as long as you buy a decent quality product from a
reputable supplier, it isn't anything to worry about. There is nothing but vapour inhaled, making
vaping a much safer alternative.
