What is vape juice?

Vape juice, or e-liquid, is a liquid that can be vaporized and inhaled. Common ingredients in vape juice include propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG) as the base, flavorings like food-grade extracts, pharmaceutical-grade nicotine (if included), and natural sweeteners such as sugar alcohols. For nicotine-free options, PG/VG ratios can be adjusted or replaced with alternative bases like VG mono ether, coconut oil/MCT oil, or mineral oil. There are two main types of vape juice – Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG). PG is usually in higher concentrations and produces better flavor while VG is thicker and creates larger vapor clouds. Depending on the manufacturer, strengths can range from 3 mg/ml to 20 mg/ml.

Non-nicotine vape juice is a great option for those who don’t want the extra nicotine, or even just to reduce their current nicotine intake. The vapor production of non-nicotine vape juice is often smoother than regular juices and as good as nicotine juices depending on the base ingredients used. PG/VG ratios can be adjusted to make the vapor more full or smooth but also affects the flavor and throat hit. As an alternative to PG/VG, VG mono ether, coconut oil/MCT oil, mineral oil, and sunflower seed oil are used frequently in nicotine-free e-liquids. These alternative bases provide a slightly different vaping experience but without the added nicotine.

What is Vape Juice Made Of?

Vape juice is an e-liquid used in vaping devices and contains a combination of ingredients, including propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, flavorings, and additives. Propylene glycol (PG) acts as the vapor base for the vape juice and helps to create a throat hit. Vegetable glycerin (VG) is responsible for providing the thick clouds of vapor that many users prefer. Nicotine can be added depending on the preferences of the user. The flavoring and other additives vary depending on the type of vape juice. The flavoring in vape juice is typically created by combining multiple chemicals. Some of these chemicals are naturally occurring, while others are synthetic. The combination of these chemicals creates the unique flavors that are found in vape juice that is used for vape pods.

There is a difference between nicotine-free and nicotine-containing juice. Nicotine-free juices have no nicotine content whatsoever, meaning that the throat hit from vaping will be less intense than with juices containing nicotine. Nicotine-containing juices can range from having low amounts of nicotine to very high amounts depending on the user’s preference.

How Long Does Vape Juice Last

The shelf life of vape juice can vary, depending on the type and strength. Generally, it is recommended that you use your vape juice within 2-3 months of purchase. In order to extend the shelf life of vape juice, you should store it in a cool, dark place away from any direct sunlight or heat source. Additionally, avoid using contaminated utensils when administering vape juice as this can introduce bacteria that can contaminate the entire batch. Be sure to clean and sterilize your equipment before use, and always handle your vape juice with clean hands.

Why Does Vape Juice Turn Brown?

Vape juice turns brown due to oxidation when it comes into contact with oxygen. This process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the type of vape juice you’re using and the environment in which it’s stored. In order to preserve your juice for optimal flavor, it is recommended that you store your juice in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight or other sources of heat.
