    Sorry for a newb question, but I see many people ordering from Essential Depot, but I only see Food Grade, do they carry pharma grade PG and VG?

    I have never ordered from them but what you need to look for is USP some companies add food grade after that but what is really important is the USP grade which is higher than food grade. For more information here is a couple of stickies

    I DIY using both PG and VG. I also use premixed flavored juices. I wish I knew the answer to the differences in the same grade PG and VG. There are definite differences. IE: I vape a 50/50 from one vendor and a 67/33 from another. There is much, much, more vapor (same setup) with the 67/33 than the 50/50 which makes no sense other than a difference in the brand of bases. Unfortunately, the vendor selling 67/33 premix charges $8.00 for 36mls of both plain PG and VG which is about half the price of a premix with nic and flavor. It sucks but I continue to buy it as I get the best results with them. (His premixed is priced very competitively but not the plain PG/VG.) This vendor knows there are differences in these two bases or he wouldn't sell the plain at such a high price. I, for one, have found it to be worth it. I continue the search though and the PG I get from One Stop DIY is the next best IMO but can't say the same for their VG. I've tried the Walmart VG even and... forget it... that stuff is awful.

    Thanks Dave, it does have the USP in front of the food grade. I have a co-op at work and was sure 6 other people were going to lynch me for spending $60 on 2 gallons of soap making materials. :-)
