    Hello guys, im Tomás from Argentina, and i started a month to vape, and the vapeing is giving me asthma, i think its the pg thats affects my lungs :(, but i want to vape and quit smoking, now i will start to do my e liquids, i buy some vg and a flavour from capella (sweet strawberry) i did a 10ml bottle, i made
    8ml vg
    1ml flavour
    1ml destilated water

    now im am doing without the nic, but what do you think of the % of the flavour, how much ml i have to put for a 30ml bottle, i want the less pg of the flavour possible, and sorry for me english. Happy holidays and thanks for reading me

    Welcome Tomas.
    Have you actually narrowed it down to pg sensitivity? Are you sure it's asthma?

    There are flavor concentrates that are vg or alcohol based. There are also some that are known as ultras, only 1-3 drops needed per 10-30ml. You can also order your nic vg based.

    That being said vg causes some to get a heavy lung feeling. I would encourage you to narrow down by process of elimination what ingredients are the problem, some are sensitive to the flavors as well. Would hate to see you continue having symptoms due to misguided assumptions.

    Fingers crossed you get it sorted out.

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    Perhaps you meant to say that vaping may be triggering your asthma attacks, If so, you could be correct. Vaping is not for everyone, might be prudent and consult a doctor.
    Dr. Polosa, Italian vapor and tobacco expert, reviews e-cigs in BMC Medicine
    Could do your own test. Vape VG only, RDA's are ideal for this, without any nicotine for 10 to 15 minutes. Assuming you felt fine prior to this test, if you still feel ok, it may be that you do have a allergy reaction to PG.
    Most folks recommend keeping DI's (distilled water) to no greater than 5% (.5 ml), otherwise the recipe looks workable.

    Speaking to a doctor before continuing is definitely in order if you're getting asthma attacks from vaping. Beyond that, have you considered that it might be VG or flavours causing the problem, as Letitia suggested above? PG sensitivity seems to get the most attention, but it usually manifests as a sore throat or something along those lines. In my case, excessive VG and certain flavours make me wheezy, but PG is no problem at all.

    For myself pg sensitivy caused skin inflammation. Luckily I can tolerate a bit of pg so I haven’t had to invest in any vg/alcohol based flavors. Playing with PEG400 and dw. Also started ordering higher nic concentrate so I wouldn't have to mess with vg based.
