E-liquid: Why Choose to Buy Vape Juice?

Vape Juice to keep you scrolling for hours on end

E-liquid is one of the most versatile vaping products on the market, with a wide range of flavours, bottle sizes, VG/PG ratios and nicotine strengths. You are guaranteed to find a vape juice that suits you with flavour tones ranging from sweet and fruity flavours to well-known, much-loved dessert flavours such as the world-famous and award-winning Lemon Tart flavoured e-liquid from Dinner Lady to the delicious Meringue Series available from Charlies Chalk Dust. Vaporising e-liquid is by far the most popular way to vape, with the majority of seasoned vapers choosing this method over the rise of disposable vapes. This article details the pros and cons of vaping e-liquid with some key information chucked in too. Luke from Sweet Geez Vapes explains:

E-LIQUID IS A GREAT WAY TO FIND YOUR PERFECT FLAVOUR

E-liquid comes in many, many flavours and is an ideal way to find your favourite go-to flavour; the flavour that really tickles your fancy. For years, e-liquid manufacturers have been coming up with different tastes and scents, with new ideas and flavours discovered every month, there will soon be a flavour for absolutely everything. Therefore, meaning that finding a flavour profile will not be too difficult. We mentioned a couple of flavour categories earlier from sweet, and fruity to dessert profiles, however, here are a few more wild flavour profiles out there that you may not believe exist: Cocktails, yoghurt, eucalyptus, milk, coffee and many more.  Luckily, there hasn't been a huge emphasis on creating savoury dish e-liquid as of yet, but I'm sure in time there will be a roast lamb flavour or even a fish and chip flavour. However, you can bet any money you like that we will not be trying the savoury options.

To find a flavour profile you like, we recommend trying out some of our 10ml or 50ml bottles- this way, you're not overspending on a 100ml bottle of a flavour you don't get on with. Click the link to view and purchase a product from our Vape Juice Collection.

IS E-LIQUID AVAILABLE IN DIFFERENT NICOTINE STRENGTHS?

The old days and laws in the United Kingdom used to allow nicotine to be added and sold in 50ml, 100ml bottles etc. Nowadays, the laws have changed, and e-liquid can only be sold with nicotine in just 10ml bottles. The 10ml bottles either contain nicotine salts or freebase nicotine. Nicotine salts are the raw form of nicotine which is sourced directly from tobacco leaves. Freebase nicotine is the process after the nicotine has been taken from the tobacco leaves and stripped of certain chemicals. Freebase nicotine has been the most popular of the two, with nicotine salts only coming onto the market recently. Without straying off course too much, a future blog is in the works which will detail the difference between the two nicotine bases; stay tuned to our E-liquid blog to not miss out!

Nicotine salt strength usually goes up in 5s. For example, 5mg, 10mg, 20mg.
Freebase nicotine strength typically goes up in 3s, for example, 3mg, 6mg, 9mg, 18mg etc.

Despite the 10ml flavoured bottles being the only nicotine e-liquid, the vaping industry is allowed to sell, there is a way around this: buying and adding nicotine shots to your larger bottles to create your own desired nicotine strength. For example, to make a 50ml e-liquid equivalent to 3mg, add one 18mg nicotine shot, repeat the process again for just under 6mg and so on...

WHAT DOES THE VG/PG RATIO MEAN IN MY E-LIQUID

VG stands for “Vegetable Glycerine,” and originates from vegetable oils. This is the e-liquid for you if you are in favour of a thick, cloudy feel to your vapour. VG is slightly sweet and creates a hit that is much smoother than PG. It is the e-juice of choice for those who participate in sub-ohm vaping.
PG stands for “Propylene Glycol.” PG is a petroleum by-product that naturally doesn’t have a smell or a taste, and it isn’t sticky. Vapers around the world have described the throat hit that the PG gives its users as a similar feeling a cigarette would provide you. It also is known to hold flavour more than VG. This makes it more appealing to consumers.
However, it is believed that PG can cause some irritation to those with sensitive throats, so the VG is often added in higher PG concentrations to add a little thickness and create a more satisfying throat hit, therefore not as irritating to those with sensitive throats. VG is great for vapers looking for an authentic vaping experience. PG is well suited for vapers intending to lower their nicotine strength whilst receiving a clean but satisfying throat hit.

THE PROS AND CONS OF USING E-LIQUID

Pros: - A huge selection of flavours are available, meaning finding your favourite is fairly straightforward. Different VG/PG ratios can be purchased to find your ideal hit. Different sizes are available. Nicotine strengths are readily available in 10ml bottles and shots can be easily added to the larger ml vape juice you buy. E-liquid bottles, especially the 10ml bottles are very cheap to buy, especially from Sweet Geez Vapes!

Cons: - E-liquid can be very messy and sticky. Using the wrong VG/PG ratio can damage the coils in your tank. Nicotine is only available in 10ml bottles. Adding e-liquid to your tank can be quite tedious compared to the simplicity of using a disposable vape.

FINAL WORDS: WHY YOU SHOULD USE E-LIQUID

In conclusion, vaping e-liquid is a perfect option for you if you know what you are looking for. E-liquid purchasing isn't simple when you have to remember the VG/PG ratio and what the wrong ratio may do to your vape kit and the confusion involved in adding nicotine to your e-liquid to measure your perfect nic hit strength. However, the vast array of flavours available is amazing and it's easy to find an everyday vape flavour that suits you best - the choice is unlimited and will leave you scrolling for hours.
