Vape Juice: The Differences Between PG and VG

When you are a vaper, you will have some choices to make. One of those choices you will have is what type of vape juice, or e-liquid, you will be choosing to inhale. For most, it will simply be a matter of preference.

When you are a vaper, you will have some choices to make. One of those choices you will have is what type of vape juice, or e-liquid, you will be choosing to inhale. For most, it will simply be a matter of preference.

 

The liquid you use to produce those clouds is mostly made of glycerine, nicotine and flavoring. The type of glycerine you choose from will determine your experience.

 

Propylene Glycol (PG)

Propylene glycol is an additive that is generally recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration. Propylene glycol is used in food, medications, cosmetics and personal products like toothpaste. Since this product absorbs water, some people find it may have a drying effect. Most vapors don't notice any significant problems. When used in e-liquid PG has;

  • A thinner consistency
  • Some prefer the stronger throat sensation
  • Better for stealth vaping
  • Stronger flavor without steeping

Vegetable Glycerine (VG)

Vegetable glycerine is most often derived from palm oil. It is sometimes used as a sweetener and is also generally recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration. Vegetable glycerine attracts water and is used in candy making to keep icing and chocolate soft. It can also be used to make food products thicker, and is often used to make gel capsules for medication. When used in e-liquid VG has;

  • A thicker consistency
  • Smoother mouthfeel
  • Bigger vapor plumes
  • Flavors will take longer to steep

 

The type of glycerine in your vape juice will vary between manufacturers. Some use all PG, some use all VG, but many will use a combination of the two products to attain the perfect consistency and vapor production in their products. Both of these products will produce vapor when heated by the coil in your atomizer or tank.
