Many people enjoy vaping for a lot of reasons, especially the many flavours of e-liquids. E-liquids are made by combining vegetable glycerine (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) and adding food-grade flavourings. There are more than 100 different flavours available, so you can enjoy your favourites. The liquid is placed in a vape tank, and there is a coil that absorbs the liquid inside. When it is heated, it creates the vapour that you inhale.
When people talk about the strength of vape liquid in the UK, they are referring to the nicotine content. In general, you will be able to choose 3 mg, 6 mg, 10 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg, or 20 mg. You can find shortfill bottles with 3 mg or 6 mg strength. 10-ml bottles will come with more options. There is even a type of vape liquid that contains 10-20 mg of nicotine.
You can also buy e-liquids without any nicotine, and they make them with CBD. Some people choose vaping liquids without nicotine because they want to take nicotine shots and make their own. Nicotine-free e-liquids are often stronger than others because they are concentrated. This is done because many people will add the nicotine shot.
What Are E-Liquid Ratios?
When you hear people talking about e-liquid ratios, they are referring to the quantity of the two ingredients, VG and PG. Most e-liquids come in either 70/30 or 50/50. For 70/30, there is 70% VG and 30% PG. This ratio produces thicker clouds or vapour. The 50/50 ratio means that there are equal amounts of VG and PG. This ratio gives you great flavour.
You do need to know what type of vaping device you have before you choose. When you choose 70/30 e-liquids, you will want to use a low resistance Sub Ohm vape kit. This makes it easier for the thick VG to be vaporised. With 50/50 e-liquid, the coil will have higher resistance, so the coil won’t get too hot too quickly. This means that the e-liquid won’t burn out too quickly.
Steeping Your E-Liquid
When you steep your e-liquid, it improves the flavour. You may have noticed that once you add nicotine, the flavour improves after a few days. During those days, the nicotine and the e-liquid combine properly. You can shake it up and use it right away, or you can steep it by placing it in a cool, dry place for 24 hours. You don’t need to steep them, but it will enhance the flavour if you do.
