    Ok so I've researched as best I could to find out about EJuice expiration dates. It seems that everywhere I look, I'm getting different answers. Basically, does EJuice expire??What would be the type of consequences for vaping expired juice? I have some pretty killer stuff that's been sitting in my drawer for a couple months but I'm not sure if it's safe to vape :-/

    If there's no date on it, I'd suggest you contact the company you bought it from and ask. Different flavors have different expiration dates depending on ingredients I'd think.

    2 months? sounds like a good steep time to me ... vape away --- seriously e-juice has a 1 to 2 year expiration date

    Nicotine and flavorings can fade away with time, but it isn't like spoiled milk that can make you sick.

    Most of my juices I need to steep at least three weeks. I have quite a few flavors in my rotation. Two months is not old! Some people have had juices that they have liked best after a six month(!) steep. I believe it is safe to say anything less than a year is still good. ;)

    PG and VG lasts a good year or two. Nicotine Base lasts a good year. Artificial flavors a good year also. Pg is antibacterial. VAPE ON!!! That juice is in it's prime!

    I just recently fell in love with a juice that was a year old! The only problem is that when re-ordering, it will not taste the same. My poin is that juice changes as it ages, what we call "steeping", so the most that may happen is the juice flavor profile may have changed -- that could be an awesome thing! Even if the juice is super old, maybe one of the only things you'd have to worry about is it not tasting good, the same, or the nic being the same percentage as it was when you ordered it. Happy hunting.

    Reading up on VG, (by itself) state 12-24 months as expiration. That sounds about right for juice to me.

    Only thing I might add to the great info here is that you keep it in a cool, dark place. Heat will make it steep in ways you many not appreciate :)

    Good point! Also, cold will make the juice taste off until it reaches room temp. So in a way, the colder temps, but not so cold that condensation and thus bacteria could form, could help to prolong the life. That is just a theory.

    BTW, the sickest I've ever seen anyone get, was my best friend when she stuck a bottle of some kinda flavored liquor in her car trunk and then forgot about it. yes, it was alcohol, but it had flavoring. I think it was pralines or something. She found the bottle after it had spent time in the trunk in heat......and made herself 2 small drinks. I was sitting right there. Within less than 3 fluid oz. of liquor, (probably about 2.5 fluid oz.) she was slurring and stumbling. It was so alarming, I took her to the hospital, but she was quite sick on the way.

    So, PG or alcohol, etc. does NOT keep things from going bad. I know some people think that, but it is simply not true.

    Yeah. I had a bottle of wine like that when I was drinking and some kind of herbal aphrodisiac stuff that had alcohol in it. Very rank.

    Keep them cool in a dark place. As long as it doesn't smell rank it's probably good. 2 years is pretty common for shelf life.
