    Default What is the difference between PG and VG?

    Hello I have been vaping for about a year now, but just recently have started looking elsewhere for my juice. I had been buying them from a kiosk in the mall and have been paying an arm and a leg for them. ($24.99 for 15 ML) I was wondering what the difference from a primarily PG base liquid is compared to a VG base liquid??? I noticed that the bottles I bought from the mall where thicker then the new bottle I just ordered from the internet. Please help me.....

    VG - Vegetable Glycerin heavier, smooths juice, increase vapor, less TH
    PG- Proplyene glycol Thinner, increase TH, may be harsh to some

    Maybe juice vendors recommend 80pg/20vg or 70pg/30vg. Not too thick and you get vapor production and throat hit. But it's very individual. Best to try different ratio's and see what's best for you.

    Thank you so much. I have been looking for suppliers and new flavors to try. :-) Been stuck on the Atomic Fireball, it's been the only flavor that has kept me from smoking analogs.

    Hi there, Well i'm new to this , but as far as i know the vg is thicker than vg some mixes are 70/30 pg/vg or 50/50 pg/vg or any kind of configuration you like i suppose, kind of depends on your setup that your using. Tanks as a rule prefer thinner liguid from what i've read here so far, i'm sure someone with a lot more know how will chime in on this for you. Hope this helped you out a bit. Cheer's

    That'll do it!

    I also like Vapor Bomb Fire n Ice. You get the cinnabomb (probably like atomic fireball) and cool menthol on exhale.

    Try the code ecf - I think you'll get 5% off.

    A lot of vendors can do custom mixes for you, as well. Something else to be mindful of is that, even if you don't have an initial reaction to PG, it can have a slow onset and you can develop a reaction to it. I've read a LOT of threads of people having problems with it.

    In addition, I've been doing my own research as to the toxicity of PG and, although I've been sticking to 100%VG juices, just because I like the smooth finish, I doubt I will ever use a PG heavy liquid again.
