E Liquid and E Juice

E-liquid or E-juice is the fluid that fuels electronic cigarettes. It does not have actual tobacco or the other harmful ingredients (tar, carcinogens, etc.) that you find in regular cigarettes. There are basic e-liquid ingredients: nicotine, natural and artificial flavorings, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine (mixture of PG and VG).

Propylene Glycol (PG) – this is used as a base or carrier for the nicotine and flavors. PG is widel used as a food additive and can be found in many things that we regularly eat. PG can also be found as an additive in some medicines.

Vegetable Glycerine (VG) – also used as a base or carrier for the nicotine and flavors in e-liquid. VG is a plant based substance and is sometimes made from coconut or palm oil. VG is also widely used as a food additive.Flavorings – food flavorings are added to create a specific taste

Nicotine – range from 0% (0mg) of nicotine to 2.4% (24mg/100mg) 

The e-liquid either used in pre-filled cartridges (clearomizers or cartomizers) or in a separate e-liquid bottle which is then poured into a reusable cartridge. An e-cig works by heating up the e-liquid solution with a battery. This produces the vapor that you inhale like a real cigarette.
