VG/PGUpdated 2 years ago

Shortform for Vegetable Glycerine (VG) and Propylene Glycol (PG). Along with flavouring, this is the total components blended to create an e-liquid. These are food-safe liquids and essentially all juices contain a ratio of these. So 50/50 would be 50% VG and 50% PG. The term Max VG would mean that the liquid would only contain a small amount of Propylene Glycol.

PG is primarily the means to carry your flavour and is thinner than VG. Due to this consistency compared to VG, the higher PG liquids will provide less vapour and would require less power and heat overall. Additionally, the higher the PG content, the bigger the “throat hit” you’d experience.

VG going to provide larger clouds and a milder inhale. With the thicker consistency, higher VG content will take more power to heat and in turn generates much more vapour. Any liquid with 70% or higher could be classified as a “high VG liquid”. The higher the VG content however, it’s normal to experience less flavour as this is carried heavier by the PG.
