If you’re just getting started in the wonderful world of vaping, we know that it can sometimes seem intimidating at first.
From choosing the right mods and accessories to figuring out which vape flavors are right for you, there are so many different things to think about.
In this post, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about how to pick the best e-juice.
From the base ingredients to how you can customize your flavorings, read on to quickly become an e-juice aficionado.
Get to Know the Basics
When you’re trying to find the best e-juice for your preferences, begin by taking a look at the base used to create these flavors.
Usually, you’ll be able to choose from two types: Vegetable Glycerin (VG) or Propylene Glycol (PG.)
While both are odorless, PG is on the thinner side and is completely tasteless. VG, on the other hand, is thick, and even comes with a somewhat sweet hint of flavor. This is because it’s actually a simple sugar alcohol.
No matter which base you end up choosing for the base of your vape flavors, make sure that you look for a USP certification. This means you’re getting quality and food-grade options.
The Two Main Types of Vape Flavors
When it comes to vape juice flavors, you’ll be able to choose between two main types: natural and artificial.
Of course, there are countless specific flavor profiles within those two options, but the good news is that they’re both delicious.
Natural e-juice flavors are created from chemicals that have been culled from edible and natural foods. Artificial flavors, on the other hand, go through lab processing in order to make the chemical flavorings that give them a specific taste.
The truth is that you likely won’t be able to tell much of a difference between the two options. So, we suggest trying several types of natural and artificial flavors to find what you love.
Tweak Your E-Juice Recipes
Last but not least, remember that there are certainly elements of the e-juice that you can control.
For example, if you’re using vaping to help you to quit smoking, you’ll be able to gradually decrease the levels of nicotine in the e-juice. 50mg of nicotine is usually the highest option, but you can go all the way down to 1.5mg or even 0mg.
You can also customize menthol levels in your e-juice, as well as the overall sweetener levels you’d like.
Ready to Find the Perfect E-Juice for Your Tastes?
We hope that this post has helped you to better understand not only the basics of e-juice flavoring but also how to find a taste that you love.
Of course, the best way to find out what you like is to try out tons of different flavors. Especially if you’re new to vaping, you may want to buy a few sample e-juice packs to experiment with.
