Complete Guide to E-Liquids

Having the perfect e-liquid can totally transform your experience with vaping. When we hear someone say that they tried ecigs and didn’t like them, it is almost always because they chose a bad device or a bad e-liquid. To increase your odds of success, you have to find the liquid that is right for you. That means choosing an effective nicotine level along with a flavor that you really enjoy. Before you can select the best eliquid, the first step is to learn a little more about them and what makes each blend unique. 

What Is In E-liquid? 

No matter which e-liquid you choose, the ingredients are all based on the same formula: a base solution of propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and flavorings. Some eliquids will use only PG or VG, but most vapers prefer a blend to get the best overall experience.

Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are both non-toxic and can be found in a variety of foods and cosmetics. In a side by side comparison, PG is a little more runny than VG and it’s also absorbed better by the wick in an ecig. While PG has no taste on its own, VG does have a slight sweetness.  Most vapers find that VG offers a stronger throat hit, but PG gives you a better clould of vapor. That’s why a blend is a great option because you get the best of both worlds. 

Selecting the Right Nicotine Level

Eliquids come in a variety of nicotine strengths ranging from no nicotine at all to around 24 mg. Selecting the right strength can take some trial and error, but once you hit the sweet spot, you’ll know it. The typical smoker usually starts out vaping with 12-18 mg. However, if you aren’t a heavy smoker or you are using a more advanced ecig with variable voltage, it’s better to start with a lower level like 6-9 mg. 

There are several ways you can monitor your nicotine intake to insure you are using the right strength. The first clue is whether you are still craving cigarettes when you vape. If you vape frequently and you still find yourself reaching for a smoke, then you probably need to increase your nicotine level a little to compensate for those cravings. On the other hand, if you feel lightheaded or experience nausea after vaping, you need to back down to a lower level of nicotine.

Find Your Favorite Flavors 

The best part of e-liquids is definitely the flavors. Carolina Flavor offers dozens of eliquid flavors and they are all made in the USA.
