When it comes to e-liquids one thing you will hear a lot about are VG and PG. What these two-letter abbreviations stand for are vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol; which are both used in e-liquid bases. Some liquids are made entirely with one or the other, and some are made with a combination of both. If you are wondering exactly what vegetable glycerin is and what it’s doing in your e-liquids, this article will enlighten you!
In addition to flavorings and nicotine, the base for e-juice is something of huge discussion among the vaping community. It’s quite divided, with users typically having a staunch preference of one over the other.
Vegetable Glycerin, or VG, is favored by some e-cig users for their nicotine liquids because of its unique characteristics, which include having a thicker consistency, a sweeter flavor, larger clouds of vapor that dissipate more slowly, and a less powerful throat hit so it’s more gentle on the throat; obviously all attributes that make it a really great base.
So what exactly is vegetable glycerin? Well, for starters, it’s nothing like nitroglycerin, which is an ingredient used to make explosives! VG is an all-natural derivative of plants, and is extracted from their oil; hence the name “vegetable”. It can be found in a wide range of products, both meant for consumption as well as for beauty.
