If you are new to the vaping scene and trying to choose the best e-juice, you might be overwhelmed at all the different options you come across. What is more important: the flavour or nicotine strength? Can I blend two flavours or should I stick to only one? And what is the difference between VG and PG? All these questions can confuse a novice vaper. So, below are a list of things you have to keep in mind before choosing the best e-liquid for your e-cig.

Choosing the correct nicotine concentration

A new vaper might be confused how to choose the correct nicotine level for them. This is crucial as too less nicotine may not give the pleasurable effect for a smoker, while too much nicotine can cause headaches and nausea. The general rule is that if you are a heavy cigarette smoker, you will need to choose the strongest e-juice, which usually contains 18 mg of nicotine. On the other hand, if you are a light smoker, a milder vaping juice of 12 mg nicotine would be sufficient. Many smokers, who are trying to quit smoking usually start off with higher nicotine levelsand gradually cut down over time.

So many flavours to choose from!

Flavour is extremely important when choosing an e-liquid. If you don’t like the flavour, it might put you off vaping completely. Luckily, e-liquids come in a variety of flavours, to suit every person’s preference such as cocktails, fruity, food and tobacco blends. If you are a new vaper, it is recommended to start out with flavours that closely match your favourite cigarette brand. Over time, get more adventurous and experiment with unique food and fruity flavours, such as grape, watermelon, candy or even pizza! For the more experienced vapers, you can also mix different flavours to get unique cocktail combinations.

Do not forget the VG/PG ratio

VG (vegetable glycerine) and PG (propylene glycol) are two important compounds, which form the foundation for almost all vape juices. Choosing the right proportions of these compounds, can either make or break your whole vaping experience. Many users find PG to have an intense flavourand hence prefer to use it in smaller quantities. A few users have also reported that PG causes dry mouth. On the other hand, VG usually has a sweet or fruity flavour. Some users report throat tingling with VG. To get the right VG/PG ratio will take a bit of a trial and error. For a new vaper, it is recommended to start with a 50/50 ratio and adjust the quantities according to your needs later.

Keeping all the above-mentioned points in mind, go ahead and find the perfect vape juice for yourself. You will need to do a bit of experimenting, with the different flavours, nicotine content and VG/PG ratio. This trial-and-error method is definitely part of the fun of your whole vaping experience. Also, always make sure to invest in good quality e-liquids, from established manufacturers, as the cheaper ones may contain dangerous chemicals.
