Choosing the perfect e-liquid can be considered an art. It is not simple to discover the juice that comes with a rich flavor that you won’t get tired of. The good news is that there are plenty of options available, as the companies on the market produce numerous products each year. Additionally, e-liquids usually replicate popular tastes, so it won’t be difficult to discover something that you enjoy. However, there are factors that need to be determined when it comes to the e-juice. Here are a couple of tips that should make the entire process simpler.
The nicotine strength is very important for users who used to be smokers. Many people choose to vape as a replacement for smoking, which means that nicotine has to be adjusted accordingly.
If you used to smoke less than half a pack per day, you would be okay with a low nicotine level, around 6mg or less. Average smokers that used to go through a pack of cigarettes each day will need 9mg to 16 mg per day. Finally, heavy chain smokers will require 18mg to 36mg.
You should choose the right levels of nicotine, because if there is too much of it you might end up having headaches, while if there isn’t enough, you might be tempted to return to regular cigarettes.
Choose the flavor
The taste of the e-juice is the most important factor for many users. Since there are so many flavours available, it might be hard to make a choice. If you still miss the traditional cigarettes you might choose the tobacco flavour. You can even find tobacco flavours similar to the flavours of popular cigarette brands.
However, the beauty of e-liquids is that you can experiment however you want. You should try new flavors for your vape pen and you might just end up liking it. There are many fruity, sweet, food and beverages blends. You can even choose to mix two different flavours. You might want a simple combination, such as strawberry and banana or you can create something a bit more sophisticated, such as a blueberry cheesecake flavour. You can even choose an alcohol-inspired flavour if you feel like it.
PG and VG
When it comes to its base solution, e-liquid can have either Propylene Glycol (PG) or Vegetable Glycerol (VG). If you enjoy large clouds of smoke you might prefer VG. However, vegetable glycerol has a taste that can be slightly sweet so the flavour can be weaker. If you don’t care that much about vapor, but you want a powerful taste, you should choose PG. Some e-liquids can have a combination of PG and VG. A common ratio for them is 40:60. Before you decide the ratio make sure that you are not allergic to PG.
