The Best PG/VG Mix for Vaping

The Best PG/VG Mix for Vaping

If you are in the early stages of switching from cigarettes to vaping or you are thinking about vaping as an option to help you quit. Understanding the liquid that goes into your tank can make the difference between sticking it out or returning back to cigarettes. If you are stuck wondering what VG & PG are we have a quick guide for you.

PG & VG – So What Exactly Are They and What Does It Mean?

Put simply, these are abbreviations for ‘propylene glycol’ and ‘vegetable glycerin’ – odourless liquid bases that are mixed with nicotine and flavour additives to create the e-juice for your vaporizer.

 PG and VG bases also have different consistencies and taste too, and they both give a different hit at the back of the throat. Hence why it’s important to know the correct mix ratio when trying a new flavour, or if you’re new to the vaping club.

E-liquids are a mixture of nicotine, flavouring and a PG and VG base. Depending on how much nicotine you put into your e-liquid, this will determine the strength of the vape.

So let’s say your e-liquid is 10% nicotine, another 10% will be made up of flavouring with around 80% of the remaining mixture made up of water and a PG and VG mixed base.

Starting off with a 50/50 ratio of PG to VG is a great way to ‘get a feel’ for vaping. Also a 50/50 vg-pg is the best pg/vg ratio for pods. You can make adjustments to your e-liquid whether you prefer more of a throat hit, or like to billow out those luscious plumes of white vapour.

Most vapers prefer a 70% VG to 30% PG mix base, for a smoother vape without overpowering the throat. You can also opt for 75pg/35vg if you want dense clouds and intense vapours as it is the best pg/vg ratio for mesh coils.
