You may be wanting to make the switch from smoking to vaping, but you want to know exactly what is in your e-liquid before you take the step. You’ve came to the right place – Read on to see a full breakdown of what ingredients can be found in vape liquids.
What is an E-liquid?
E-liquids are used with electronic cigarettes. Typically, e-liquids contain nicotine and using them with an e-cigarette delivers nicotine to the body.
What Ingredients are in an E-liquid?
Most e-liquids contain four main components. These are Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG), flavourings and nicotine.
PG is commonly used as a food additive. It is both colourless and odourless. When buying of a genuine e-liquid supplier, the PG used in e-liquids is typically of an almost 100% purity and of pharmaceutical grade quality. It is known as the ‘flavour carrying’ component in e-liquid.
VG is more viscous than PG. It is slightly sweet and is both colourless and odourless. Due to being a thicker substance, higher VG e-liquids tend to create thicker and denser vape clouds. Higher VG e-liquids should also be much smoother on the inhale.
Every e-liquid will be made up of different flavourings – these are typically food flavourings. These flavourings help create the unique taste you experience when vaping them. From bubblegum e-liquids to custard e-liquids the possibilities are endless.
Most people looking to switch from smoking to vaping are already aware of nicotine, but here’s the basic information. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance which can be toxic in high doses. Due to its addictive nature, we advise not taking up vaping if you are not already smoking. You can find e-liquids in various strengths, and some are even available with no nicotine – 0mg.
NovaVapes and E-liquids.
Our NovaVapes shortfills are 50ml of e-liquid, with no nicotine in, in a 60ml bottle. If you add our 10ml nicotine shot, which comes free with your order, it takes the product up to 60ML and dilutes the e-liquid into a 3mg shortfill (with a good shake of course!). These are ideal for people who need a lower strength e-liquid to stay off the cigarettes. There is also the option to not add the nicotine shot at all, which would leave it at 50ML and 0mg!
If you need something a little stronger, we also have nicotine salts which are available in 10mg and 20mg. These are perfect for starter vape devices / vape pens and vape pods.
But what about if you don’t have a vape device yet? We can help! We also have a huge range of disposable vape devices. These are also available in 10mg and 20mg and are puff activated. Little to no vape knowledge is required, just inhale, and dispose of the vape bar when it’s empty!
So there you have it, everything you need to know about what is in your vape liquid and the options available to you to make the switch.
