By using the Electronic Cigarettes which are filled with eLiquid, the user can get all the experience of inhaling a traditional cigarette, though without any smoke or desecrating any tar or ash. The eLiquid provides vapour and the user can get the same feel as he gets through using the normal cigarette.
In the market, several companies are now producing various types of eLiquids that come with a wide variety of flavours of nicotine. According to the desire and interest of the user, he or she can select the eLiquid that contains either high nicotine or that which contains nicotine mildly or that which contains no nicotine.
The following are the various strength levels of nicotine present in the eLiquid in the market:
- 0 mg is no nicotine,
- 6 mg is low density nicotine,
- 12 mg is medium density nicotine,
- 18 mg is high density nicotine, and
- 24 mg is the extremely high density
Any eLiquid that is coming with higher levels than these standards is considered as the maximum nicotine levels and are advised to be strictly avoided by the users.
Main Ingredients of an eLiquid
eLiquids are also called as eJuices and mainly consist of the following ingredients that are Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG), and also contain food flavouring elements along with different levels of nicotine.
Propylene Glycol is a common additive and a most commonly used preservative in food items and plastics. While for vapers, this additive provides throat hit, it is much of an intense flavour and is thinner and produces less vapour. The preservative qualities present in Propylene Glycol offers an extension to the life of the eLiquid, but, some of the vapours are sensitive and also are allergic to the inhaler.
Another ingredient of the eLiquid is Vegetable Glycerin (VG) which is thicker and sweeter than the Propylene Glycol and so offers the best mixture to the eLiquid along with the Propylene Glycol. Vegetable Glycerin creates denser cloud and also makes a thicker vapour.
These two ingredients called Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol are used in different combinations in eLiquids to bring different flavours and offer a different vape experience. Moreover, the eLiquids also come in different flavours that include, sweet, savory, juicy, sour, and such other.
