What is VG & PG E Liquid and Which Type Should I Buy
VG E Liquid:
VG stands for Vegetable Glycerol. It is a carbohydrate extracted form plant oil in most cases and used as additive or sweetener in many food and cosmetic. It acts as a diluent.
VG is one of the most common type of ingredients used in e liquids. It is colourless and thick compound that acts as a light sweet taste. It is an ideal e liquid type for those wanting to avoid PG (Propylene Glycol) due to sensitivity and other reasons. VG e liquids does not, in comparison to PG E Liquid, provide same level of throat hit. It does produce thicker and richer vapour and suitable for MODs and Box Mods like Halo Reactor and Tracers.
PG E Liquid:
Propylene Glycol is most common type of compound found in e liquids. Most popular type of e liquids are those with PG base. It has low density, tasteless and odourless compound that does not affect the taste of e liquid which may be the reason for its popularity.
Which E Liquid to Buy - VG or PG:
This comes down to personal choice and there is no right or wrong answer. If you are looking for solid throat hit, PG is the answer and if you want a rich flavour and very thick cloud of vapour, VG is the type you want. So if you are asking which e liquid is better - you should first identify what you are looking for - personal preferences. Some prefer VG e liquid because they love the plumes of vapour and some prefer smoking like experience with great throat hit that PG can provide. So it finally comes down to preferences.
