If you are a vaper you known how addicting it can be to continually purchase e-juice for your sub-ohm. You walk into a vape store looking for something fruity and walk out spending 100’s later on new juice. Whether you are new to vaping or someone that has been vaping a long time, you may come across saying to yourself I wonder what this flavor would taste like, or “I wonder if I could ever create it” Once you learn to make your own e-juice creations it can be fun and exciting to experiment with new flavors.
Making your own e-cig liquid is like making a new recipe for dinner. You will need a basic starter of ingredients to get you going. You will also want to make sure you understand all the terms of what everything is and the correct ratios. Think of it as a big science experiment, if you do not know how much or what ratio it will not come out as you expected.
The two may be very confusing for a new vaper and someone may not really understand the difference between the two.
“Propylene Glycol is an organic compound produced from Propylene Oxide. It is colorless, nearly odorless, and retains low viscosity. Food grade Propylene Glycol is recognized safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The main applications for Propylene Glycol are solvents, humectants, preservatives in food, tobacco products, pharmaceutical products, and of course e-juice”.
“Vegetable Glycerin is an all natural liquid generally extracted from plant oils, in particular, soy, coconut oil, and palm oil. It is typically clear with little hint of color, odorless, in some cases sweet, and relatively viscous. Like Propylene Glycol it is considered safe by he U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The main applications of Vegetable Glycerin are cosmetics products, food production, and e-juice”.
*WARNING* Some people may experience an allergic reaction to PG in the throat and should switch to VG only shouyld this occur.
I am not going to go into all about the nicotine and the levels. I suggest anyone that wants to make their own e-juice to google about nicotine and the safety precautions they need to take while handling the liquid.
To make your own e-juice you will need supplies. Some people like to buy everything separate and some like to buy starter kits that will have everything you need to begin making your creations.
Proportions are very important when creating your own e-juice. You will want to make sure you have the right ratios to create a great flavor. There is some really nice porportion calculators that will tell you how much of everything you need.
For anyone that is concerned over whether this is regulated you can find any information on the FDA website.
