What is Vaping, what are E-Liquids and what are they made from?

New to the vaping scene and E-Liquid? Not sure what it is or what it is made from? Then look no further, you have come to the right place!

So lets start with the basics and work from there.

Vaping is the inhalation of vapour created from an electronic cigarette (ecig) device. E-Cigs are usually battery powered devices with a tank or cartridge that contain an e-liquid, the liquid tends to seep through a coil device and is heated into a a vapour which is then inhaled by the vaper. Hence the term “Vaping” Users can use Nicotine free e-liquids which are usually classed as short fills or an eliquid containing nicotine, these are generally known as salts or the overall term of just e-liquid.

These E-Liquids come with a variety of terms attached like strength and ratio etc. These can be quite confusing for people who are new to vaping. Strength means Nicotine and this accounts for the levels of nicotine contained within the liquid, they generally come in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and 18mg, obviously the higher the strength the more nicotine they contain. A lot of brands are now selling hybrid nicotine, salt nicotine and synthetic nicotine, these varieties generally come in 2 strengths only. 10 and 20mg.

Ratio is the mixture of the main ingredients that makeup the e-liquid. There are 2 main ingredients, Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine. PG carries the flavour and provides the throat hit while VG produces the clouds and is generally used to thicken the liquid. Classic E-Liquid or early recipes where 70% VG and 30% VG, all the new produces and experimenters have introduced a whole new range of ratios to the market including 50/50 and 30PG/70VG. Flavourings are added to give you all of the flavour profiles you see by popular brands, these are general food flavourings and additives added.

Vaping has become a hugely successful way to transition from harmful smoking. There are now more people making the switch month by month to vaping as they find it a lot easier than using nicotine replacement as vaping is still quite similar to smoking.
