So i figured its time I should talk a little bit about what is in E-Juice!
The website above has a lot of good info on exactly whats in juice as well as some great graphics to explain it
so with a little help from reading the article above and using my own knowledge i hope to educate you on what is in E-Juice!
E- liquid or E-Juice is made of 3 Main ingredients! Nicotine, Flavoring, and Diluents.
1) Nicotine : is naturally formed in tobacco leaves and is released, along with other toxic products when a cigarette burns. The Nicotine used in E Juice is chemically stripped out of tobacco leaves then distilled out of solution to ultimately get the purest form of Nicotine .
2) Flavor: Plain old artificial flavoring is added to the mix to give the vape a certain taste like Apple, Candy, Soda, almost anything you can think of! Every flavor is created differently and has different ingredients in them! a lot of people have a business in E-juice ether by making flavors, selling them, or selling ingredients like the flavor and they usually say how it was made and whats in it before you buy that flavor! if you guys would like a more in-depth post about what is in these flavors leave a comment down below!
3) Diluents: This ingredient serves more than one purpose! Theres are added to correct the strength of the flavor .by making it less potent for the user to enjoy without getting an overdose of artificial flavor.
The second thing Diluents do in E-Juice is they produce the vapor from the juice and transport the Nicotine and Flavor to produce a nice flavored vape 😀
The most common Diluents used in e liquid are
pharmaceutical (PG) : is a colorless and odorless liquid with a sweet taste commonly used in pharmaceutical products and food
Vegetable Glycerine (VG): like Propylene Glycol, is a common food and pharmaceutical additive. Vegetable Glycerine is used to Dilute other products as well as E-Liquid performing the same tasks.
Here is an image straight from the article i linked to showing how basic yet complex E-Juice actually is
I hope you guys enjoyed this post and are more informed on the world of Vaping!
