    I've said it before, but I'm too lazy to find my own post right now. Glycerin is not necessarily VEGETABLE glycerin. However, if it says USP then it is at such a purity level that the source is irrelevant (unless you are opposed to consuming animal products for moral/ethical reasons.)

    AFAIK any USP grade glycerin is as safe as any other and they are all the same product. If you want to know what organism the glycerin was extracted from, you will have to contact the (new favorite word->) Manufactory.

    The Michael's here only had 3 kinds.....the plain glycerin, butter flavor, and vanilla. You'll want the plain for sure. I also got the butter and for me, I mixed it with some RY4 and I love it! But you may not...lol

    Since I'm not crazy about vanilla, I didn't try it nor check the bottle. But as long as it only has water, PG or VG, alcohol and/or flavoring, it should be safe. No sugar, oil, or colorings.

    Let us know if you try it!

    So that one chuckie bought should be ok since it said USP? I didn't want to tell him that as I wasn't sure.

    Yes it's ok, but USP does not guarantee it comes from vegetable material, only attests to it's purity. But like I said, at this level of purity it is only relevant to ethical issues (vegan, etc.)

    I make my own e-liquid on a regular bases: using mainly vegetable glycerin as my preferred main liquid, PG just sucks your throat dry and at the moment there is a concern that PG might not be so good for your health---but clinical studies being done by certain individuals *so i hear* have still yet to confirm or deny those claim's, that’s why allot of e-liquid manufacturers have now discontinued adding PG to there liquids​




    here is one of my recipes that i use..............enjoy!




    A thick vapor E-liquid
    Glycerine and propylene glycol make’s the vapor/smoke that comes out of your E-cigarette, you'll just get steam without one or both of these. Only!! buy and use them in their purest form - food grade or USP/BP (pharmaceutical grade)

    10% distilled water <<== buy it at your local supermarket
    10% of LorAnn flavouring OR any candy liquid flavouring’s or your choice
    20% - 0mg to 36mg commercial e-liquid
    <<== Buy some from your usual E-liquid supplier
    30% - glycerine
    30% - propylene glycol

    OR!
    60% - glycerine with no propylene glycol



    what ever suits you, use either the 60% Veg glycerine or 30% VG - 30% PG


    THEN MIX THE INGREDIANCE ABOVE WELL TO MAKE E-LIQUID WITH A VERY!!! THICK VAPOR
    E-SMOKE E-LIQUID
    You can find LorAnn candy flavor liquids on the internet
    (Just Google LorAnn Oils to find her Candy oil flavoring web site)


    Or search for Lorann flavorings oils on ebay​
