Check out everything you need to know about vape juice below.
What Is Vape Juice?
Vape juice, e-liquid or e-juice, is a liquid in electronic cigarettes and personal vaporizers.
Vape juice typically consists of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), nicotine, and added flavorings. The juice in a vape pen creates vapor clouds. This is not the same as the smoke you find with traditional cigarette smoking.
Even though these vapor clouds are not smoke, they do have in common the presence of nicotine. You will find different nicotine strengths depending on the vape juice you choose.
Some zero-nicotine vape juices are available for those who like the experience of vaping but want to enjoy it without the added nicotine buzz. Sometimes former cigarette smokers start with higher nicotine strengths and then taper down to vape juices with lower nicotine as they get used to vaping.
Vape juice also comes in different bottle sizes and a wide variety of flavors, with something to suit every taste.
Vape Juice Ingredients
Vape Shack offers vape juices and e-liquids containing several ingredients that form the ideal base for quality vaping. Each of our options is loaded with flavor for the ultimate vaping experience!
You will typically find propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and nicotine in a vapor base. The combination of these ingredients yields a satisfying puff each time you vape, whether using a rechargeable pen or a disposable one.
Propylene glycol is an organic compound that carries the flavor of the vape liquid and also works to produce a consistent vapor. It’s typically used to retain and distribute flavor. PG is a common food additive, so it’s a non-toxic ingredient and totally safe for human consumption. You may often find it in medicines, cosmetics, and food products.
Vegetable glycerin is a bit thicker than Propylene glycol, and this is the ingredient responsible for creating the larger vapor clouds. Found in a number of products, it’s a colorless and odorless ingredient that is produced from plant oils. Just like PG, VG is non-toxic and safe for consumption.
Nicotine, an alkaloid, is found in the nightshade family of plants. It acts as a stimulant in small amounts and has been used medicinally for centuries. Nicotine is an optional ingredient, and you will find many e-juices that are produced with no nicotine at all. If you wish, you can purchase it separately and add it to your e-liquid.
Different Types of E-Liquids
VapeShack provides you with an unlimited variety of flavors and blends to match your taste. You can find e-juices with different nicotine strengths and ratios. Knowing which e-liquid suits your vape is important so that you don’t end up wasting money on juice you can’t enjoy.
Here’s a short breakdown of liquid types and vapes they are used with.
70/30 Vape Juice
70/30 vape juice is a high VG liquid, meaning it contains 70% vegetable glycerin and 30% propylene glycol. These vape juices are meant to be used with Sub-Ohm devices. The high concentration of VG results in a sweeter and richer flavor profile of an e-liquid and produces considerably thicker vapor clouds.
Using 70/30 vape juice on a vaporizer will not give it the same taste since the coil will have difficulties absorbing the thick VG liquid.
The concentration of 50% VG and 50% PG is the most picked one among former smokers. This e-liquid is suitable for starter kits and can contain even 20mg of nicotine, the ideal strength for those just switching to vape.
If 20mg of nicotine doesn’t really give a strong punch, nic salts are the way to go. Unlike other vape juices, these ones are high in nicotine and won’t be harsh on your throat. Current smokers will find nicotine salts enjoyable because they absorb faster and give the desired nicotine punch. You won’t be craving a regular cigarette anymore.
Nicotine salts are suitable for less-powerful kits.
Bar juices are those liquids that replicate the flavor of disposable vapes. You can usually find them in 10ml bottles filled with nic salts, hence, they are best for Sub-Ohm devices. Disposable vapes have an extra sweet and strong flavor profile, hence, they’ve been quite popular over the years.
If you don’t want to own a vape for a couple thousand puffs like Elf Bar or Flum, you can now purchase bar juices instead.
Nicotine Salts vs Sub-Ohm (Freebase)
Nicotine salts and freebase nicotine are two different forms of nicotine that are commonly used in e-liquids and vaping products. Here's a brief overview of the main differences between the two:
Chemical structure: Freebase nicotine is a form of nicotine that has been extracted from tobacco leaves and is in its purest form. Nicotine salts, on the other hand, are created by adding an acid to freebase nicotine, which creates a salt. This chemical alteration affects how the nicotine is absorbed by the body.
Nicotine delivery: Because of the chemical structure of nicotine salts, they are generally absorbed more quickly and efficiently by the body than freebase nicotine. This means that users may experience a stronger and more immediate nicotine hit when using nicotine salt e-liquids, compared to freebase nicotine e-liquids.
Smoothness: One of the main advantages of nicotine salt e-liquids is that they tend to be smoother and less harsh on the throat than freebase nicotine e-liquids. This is because the addition of an acid to the nicotine lowers the pH level of the e-liquid, which makes it less alkaline and therefore less irritating to the throat.
Flavor: Nicotine salts also tend to enhance the flavor of e-liquids, particularly at higher nicotine concentrations. This is because the lower pH level of the e-liquid allows for more of the flavor compounds to be released.
Overall, the choice between nicotine salts and freebase nicotine will depend on individual preferences and vaping habits. Some vapers prefer the strong and immediate nicotine hit of nicotine salts, while others prefer the smoother and more gradual nicotine delivery of freebase nicotine. It's important to choose the right nicotine strength and e-liquid formulation based on your individual needs and preferences, and to consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns about nicotine use.
Which Type of E-Liquid Should I Choose?
The type of e-juice you need depends on the vape device you’re using. The flavor and vaping experience highly depends on the ratio of VG:PG, so using the wrong ratio may hurt your throat or make a liquid taste blend.
Pod users like Smok Novo and Voopoo Drag Nano should opt for nic salts and freebase e-liquids with or without nicotine. These are low-powered devices and are very compatible with thinner liquids. They work great with liquids containing up to 20mg of nicotine.
Pods are great starter vapes as they resemble the smoking experience. You inhale the vapor that goes to your lungs before letting the vapor out.
Balanced 50% VG and 50% PG liquids are ideal for pods. You will have a richer flavor, but less thicker clouds than with more powerful devices. Balanced liquids aren’t usually harsh on the throat, so you will have a smooth vaping experience.
Sub-Ohm users like Voopoo Drag and Smok Prince Stick are famous for their thick clouds of vapor. These devices have coils with thick holes, allowing better liquid absorption. You can opt for thicker juices like nic salts and Sub-Ohm vape juices.
Unlike pods, when you inhale the vapor from Sub-Ohm vape kits, the vapor goes straight to your lungs, and you don’t hold it in your mouth first.
You can use high VG liquid containing 80% VG and 20% PG or 70% VG and 30% PG. You will enjoy the rich flavor and thick clouds. Note that these liquids are usually sweeter because vegetable glycerin naturally adds sweetness to e-juices.
What Nicotine Strength Should I Choose?
Most e-liquids come with added nicotine in various strengths. The strength you go for will solely depend on your unique preference and nicotine cravings.
Using high-powered vape kits means you will likely prefer to keep the nicotine content as low as possible since higher amounts may be harsh for the throat. The ideal level is somewhere between 3mg to 6mg.
Low-powered pod users can increase the nicotine strength to 20mg in nicotine salts and freebase liquids. The nicotine content may also depend on how many cigarettes you used to smoke:
- 1-5 cigarettes per day equals about 5mg of nicotine in nic salts and 3mg in 50/50 freebase;
- 6-15 cigarettes per day equals about 10mg in nic salts and 6mg in 50/50 freebase;
- 15 or more cigarettes per day equals about 20mg in nic salts and 12mg in 50/50 freebase liquids.
How Do E-Cigarettes Work?
Most vapes are powered by rechargeable batteries, except for disposable vapes that you throw away once the battery is depleted. Each of them, however, uses e-liquid that you inhale. Inside a vape, there is a coil that heats up the liquid inside as you inhale and transforms it into clouds of vapor.
Basically, it mimics the smoking experience but without harmful chemicals present. Some vapes come with a coil or pod that has a limited lifespan. You can purchase pods or coils to replace the old ones and continue to enjoy your vape. Worth noting that there are also pre-filled cartridges so that you don’t deal with filling the liquid up but simply exchanging the cartridge.
Refilling an Electronic Cigarette: What You Should Know
Some people are hesitant to switch to an electronic cigarette if they are concerned about refilling it with e-juice and making a mess or a mistake that causes the electronic cigarette to malfunction.
Fortunately, refilling electronic cigarettes is an incredibly easy process. Users take the cartridge out of the e-cigarette and carefully drip the vape juice into the empty cartridge until it is completely refilled.
When you switch to an electronic cigarette, you can save money by purchasing the e-juice in bulk and refilling your device as needed. We suggest that before you purchase any vape juice in bulk, you try a small quantity to be sure you like the flavor. Once you know what flavors suit you best, you will know exactly what to stock up on for the best and most satisfying vape experience.
If you still think refilling a cartridge is a hassle and do not want to try it, another great option is available. Prefilled cartridges make it easy to pull out the empty cartridge and snap a new one into your device.
