What is an e liquid? An e liquid is simple a nicotine solution combined with flavouring to provide an inhale-able vapour, creating a very similar experience to smoking traditional tobacco. Most e liquids contain varying amounts of nicotine to suit the users preference, however nicotine free e liquids also exist.
What are the different nicotine strengths?
At Vapour Centre we offer the conventional nicotine strengths of:
12mg Nicotine – Low
18mg Nicotine – Medium
24mg Nicotine – High
It is common for heavy smokers to start at 24mg, and gradually wean themselves down to 18mg and 12mg as a comfortable way of reducing their nicotine intake if desired. The higher the milligram rating, the stronger the throat hit whilst vaping and the faster your nicotine craving is satisfied.
What do E Liquids contain?
E liquids combine a mixture of base ingredients to create a smooth flavour. The three key ingredients to an e liquid are Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and a nicotine solution.
The mixtures of these can vary, however we find the most satisfactory blends usually consist of a majority mix of PG along with a lesser amount of VG. The effectiveness of this mix can vary between flavours and so we like to pick based on flavour and smoothness. Usually we find a 70% PG and 30% VG mix as a consistent and flavourful balance. These bases are combined with natural and artificial flavours to create an enjoyably tasting vapour.
What is Propylene Glycol (PG)?
Propylene Glycol is pharmaceutical grade organic compound produced from Propylene Oxide. It is colourless, odourless and holds a low viscosity (thickness). Used as a flavouring carrier in food products, as an ingredient in food colouring and also as an additive in various medicines. It has been declared as recognised as safe for human consumption since the 1970’s and we have been ingesting it in various forms, mainly in our foods for years. Propylene Glycol is non toxic.
What is Vegetable Glycerin (VG)?
Vegetable Glycerin is also a pharmaceutical grade organic compound generally extracted from plant oils, particularly soy, coconut and palm oil. It is usually clear, odourless with a slight colour and in some cases sweet. It is typically used as a food additive to thicken things up and help preserve them for a longer life. Like Propylene Glycol it is recognised as safe for human consumption and is used in things like sweetners and cake icing. Vegetable Glycerin is also non toxic.
