The Vape Debate: PG vs. VG
A lot of new people who are getting in to vaping do not have a full understanding of all the different things they have to consider when they are choosing which vape fluid they want to use. A huge majority will just buy a flavor cocktail that they think they will like and stick to those, some will even consider the nicotine content in the vape fluid but the huge majority will not go past this point of decision. There are more things that you have to consider to make your overall experience of vaping enjoyable. The major thing that a lot of people miss out on is what ratio of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) they should have.
So for those of you who do not know, both PG and VG are odorless liquids that are mixed in with nicotine and flavoring that help make the vape juice. However, both have a different sort of consistency from each other and that changes the experience of vaping as it also affects the taste and heaviness of the vapor that you inhale. You can get purely PG or purely VG versions of vape juice but you can also get various mixtures of different ratios, which you can get from any online vape shop. That however, is an advanced discussion.
What you need to know is that PG is a less dense substance than VG. This means that it helps with the flavor hit or the throat hit of the vape juice but the vapor isn’t as thick. On the other hand VG is thicker and more viscous, and adds a bit of a sweet tinge to the vapor, it does not mix with the flavor as well but it is a much smoother option.
