E-Liquids: An Overview. What You Need to Know

Vaping is a great way to help you to give up smoking. Experts say that it’s much safer than smoking, although there may be some potential long-term risks; they are unknown right now but will be less than smoking, given that there are fewer dangerous chemicals in vape.

This doesn’t mean that you should rush out and just start vaping. You need to understand what the process involves first, so that you can make an informed decision. Today, we are going to provide you with a basic overview of e-liquids so that you have a more informed understanding of exactly what it is you are consuming.

Vape Juice: Are They All the Same?

One point of confusion that we frequently encounter with people who are new to vaping is their lack of understanding of the various vape juices available.

Basically, all juices contain the same basic ingredients, but in varying amounts. From this perspective, they are all the same, but slightly different.

The biggest confusion that people have is that vape juice goes by so many different names, and they don’t realise that these names are interchangeable, and instead think that they are referring to different types of vape. They aren’t.

Common names for vape juice include:

-          Vape Juice

-          E-Liquid

-          Flavour Cartridge

-          Smoke Juice

-          E-Juice

-          Juice

-          E-Smoke

-          Liquid

These are NOT different products. They all refer to the same thing. However, each may have varying amounts of various ingredients, but none of the names refers to these differences.

Vegetable Glycerine & Propylene Glycol

The two main ingredients in e-juice are vegetable glycerine (VG) and propylene glycol (PG). They each play different roles within the juices and have a different effect on your experiences.

VG creates a gentle hit at the back of the throat. It also creates bigger clouds, so if you're into cloud chasing, you need a high VG juice, such as Riot Squad e liquid. VG is also naturally sweet, so a high VG juice will taste relatively sweeter than a low PG juice

PG is thinner than VG, and as such, it creates a harder hit at the back of the throat. Ex-smokers often prefer a high PG juice because it feels closer to smoking. However, it’s very rare to find a juice beyond 40% PG. This is because any more than that and it can become too hard on the back of the throat, causing irritation, and even pain.


There’s not really much to say about flavours beyond the fact that there are thousands available and that you will need to experiment to find the best ones. This is part of the fun of vaping. Do you love Riot Squad e liquid or Dinner Lady liquid? Do you love fruity flavours or earthy flavours? These are questions that only you can answer.


Finally, we have the nicotine content. Juices come in a range of nicotine strengths. You can buy juices without any nicotine, all the way up to juices with 20mg per ml of juice – any stronger, and it’s illegal for resale in the UK. You won’t need anything stronger though. 20mg is the equivalent of smoking at least 60 cigarettes a day – it’s strong!
