More and more people are turning to e-cigarettes and vaporisers as they try to give up smoking. Personally, I think that’s a great idea, and they definitely helped me quit for good; I haven’t’ smoked a cigarette in two years now! However, there are a few things that I wish I’d known about e-liquids before I started vaping. I’m going to share these with you now – hopefully, it will stop some of you falling into the same traps I did.
- You need to shake the bottle from time to time. When I first started vaping, I thought that e-juices went off within a couple of week. That’s not because anyone told me this, but because I noticed that after two or three weeks, I couldn’t taste them anymore. They didn’t taste foul; they just tasted of nothing. It took a few months, and some unfairly thrown away juices, before I realised that they really just needed shaking up.
- Juices can contain pure VG but pure PG is foul.
A typical E-juice contains vegetable glycerine (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), water, flavour, and nicotine (nicotine is generally optional). However, that doesn’t have to be the case. You can buy e-juices that have 100% VG (it’s a bit confusing calling it 100% VG, because they still have water, flavour, and may or may not have nicotine.
However, this is how a non-PG based e-juice is labelled in the UK). These are fun, because you can make huge plumes of smoke. However, a pure PG juice is not nice. Don’t make the mistake I made. It will hurt your throat, the vape clouds will be impotent, and it will taste bitter.
- Avoid darker colours if you don’t want to clean your vaporiser too much.
The best place to buy e liquid UK sells a huge range of flavours. They range in colour from almost see through to very dark. Over the years, I’ve learned that the darker colours are ‘stickier’. They leave a residue inside your vaporiser, and you’ll have to clean it every few days. It gets tiresome.
Also, if you go for the darker flavours, you can still taste them a bit when you swap to a different vape juice. Again, you can clean the vaporiser to help minimise this, but that’s just an annoying extra step.
