    Hi,
    today I wanted to buy PG and VG and mix them for my vaping. I went to shoppers, but they only had one type of Glycerin, they did not have "vegetable" glycerin.
    I took a picture.

    Thanks

    Yeah, that's the shizz. As long as it says Glycerin (or Glycerine) USP (or BP) you're good to go.

    I'm told you have to ask the pharmacist.... and lots of the suppliers carry PG. I think you can get both from Jughead's.... but I'd have to double check that.... I'm certain others have it as well.

    Thanks for the quick response guys. OK I will go there again and grab it.
    The pharmacist had no idea what VG was.

    what flavour should I expect to get from straight vg?

    Thanks

    Flavour is muted from straight VG, but you can accommodate when mixing. You'll probably also need to thin it down with PGA or distilled water.

    I tried that glycerin from shoppers and did not like it. I left a horrible taste in my mouth. To me VG and glycerin are not the same thing. Unless it says vegetable glycerine on the bottle I would not buy it.


    NO this is not a pipe bomb!!!!!!!

    Canada forum, shipping could make those prohibitively expensive. I get my PG/VGs from diy-ejuice, but I'm sure there's a vendor closer to you (Canvape comes to mind).

    I get the pharmacist at Shoppers Drug Mart to order the 500ml of PG and VG. It comes with their delivery the next day and I ask them "call when ready". They do not stock the large bottles on the shelf. I think they normally stock the 250ml of VG.

    It seems to be the best value. Large bottles and no shipping. 500ml of PG (USP) and 500ml of VG (Vegetable Glycerine USP) came to $22 total after the tax (13%) was included. It's hard (but probably not impossible) to beat those prices on line.

    Thank you for the recommendations. I am looking for high quality VG and PG that do not impart nasty flavours. I vape 0 nicotine.

    The pharmacist here did not know about Vegetable Glycerin at all. I don't know if I can have that stuff ordered in. also the 500 ml you are talking about, is it actual vegetable glycerin or the stuff I pictured?

    Thanks

    I usually get free shipping from well.ca I think free shipping is pretty much standard with them and it arrives within days.

    Just checked with them. If you spend 25 you get free shipping. One bottle of the large vg is 2.99 shipping to Ontario

    Neither of them were the store brands. They were obviously what they get from their wholesaler for their use in the pharmacy.
