The world of vaping can be overwhelming in the beginning with all the terms. What is PG? What is VG? What does high VG e-Liquid mean? The below information will answer all of your questions.

Most e-Liquid contain a mix of Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

 

High-VG means that there is more vegetable glycerin than propylene.

Vegetable Glycerin – The main source of CLOUDS

When an e-Liquid is made with high VG, you will notice that it is thicker than other e-Liquids and more viscous. The VG provides a mild throat hit and flavor so high-VG might not be ideal for beginners. The higher VG content will produce thicker and massive clouds. This makes high-VG e-Liquids ideal for more advanced users that own mechanical or digital MODS.

Propylene Glycol – Delicious flavors and Throat Hit

Compared to VG, Propylene Glycol is less thick and will fill the cartomizer quicker. An e-Liquid with a high PG is guaranteed to give you a more powerful throat hit than VG or even high-VG e-Liquids. If you were a regular smoker that enjoys the throat hit that feels like you’re smoking a cigarette, a higher PG ratio e-Liquid would be right for you. PG heavy e-Liquids will provide less vapor but the flavor would be a lot more enhanced.

VG-Only e-Liquids

There are many e-Liquid brands that developed VG-only e-Liquids and many have been curious why that was the case. The reason why brands have been making VG-only blends are because some people are allergic or very sensitive to propylene glycol (PG). That is why those that are allergic or use mechanical mods that vape with coils that are less than 1ohm tend to go with VG-only e-Liquids.
