The right mix of PG and VG for e-juices

You might know that the most prominent constituent of an e-juice or vape is Polyphenol glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG)  or a mix of the two in different combinations called the hybrid e-juices.   In all the cases they are the flavor carriers. They carry both the flavoring agents as well as the nicotine if the e-juice contains nicotine. The nicotine levels can also vary depending on the purpose of vaping as well as one’s personal preference. Since the PG and VG have their own set of advantages and disadvantages, when you want to buy a hybrid version, it is important to hit on the right mix to achieve what you prefer.

The strengths and differences

 There are about six important features that you should consider when you are buying an E-liquid Mate e-juice they include

  • Throat hit
  • Atomizer friendliness
  • Vapor production
  • Temperature resistance
  • Flavor
  • Storage time.

Though most of the features are similar, PG seems to score high on features like atomizer friendliness and storage time while the VG scores high in terms of vapor production and temperature resistance so on and so forth. The hybrid is meant to make use of the advantages of using PG and VG to get an e-juice that is satisfactory in all counts.

PG/VG ratio for cloud chasers- A pure VG based e-juice would be an ideal choice, if you are looking for a great cloud production and is ready to trade-off throat hit and flavor.

PG/VG ratio for lifestyle, casual vapers- A ratio of 70 VG/30 PG mix would be ideal.  This means you can expect a fairly big cloud with a fair amount of tasty flavor and a fair amount of throat hit.

PG/VG ratio for occasional vapers- A ratio of 50 VG/50 PG ratio is likely to provide an enjoyable experience fit for experimenting and result in good throat hit and consistent cloud production.

Choose the right vaping liquid for the experience you expect.
