Hi, I’m Gabriella, welcome to my channel for those new to vaping, or those looking to make the switch from cigarettes to vaping.
Today I’m going to discuss the basic ingredients in e-juice.
E-juice, also known as ‘vape juice’ or ‘e-liquid’ is the liquid used in e-cigarettes and vaping devices to create the vapor, and optionally to deliver nicotine within the vapor.
E-juices come in a large variety of flavors and can have different nicotine levels – typically ranging from 0mg, as in nicotine free, to 24mg
E-juice is generally made out 4 simple ingredients: Propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and flavoring.
Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are essential in the vaporization of the e-juice. And while they might be the scarier sounding ingredients, in reality they are very safe.
Propylene glycol is an organic compound that can be found in food products as well as asthma inhalers and is perfectly safe to inhale. The same goes for vegetable glycerin which is a ‘sugar alcohol’ that can be found in all sorts of every day products including sweetener, toothpaste and cough syrup. Vegetable glycerin is most commonly derived from soy, or vegetable or palm oil. And while vegetable glycerin is a ‘sugar alcohol’ it does not contribute to tooth decay.
The flavorings used in e-liquids are usually just simple food grade flavorings, similar to the ones used in cooking and baking. The nicotine used is usually high-purity pharmaceutical grade nicotine. It is important to note that the nicotine in regular cigarettes is not the cause of health related issued such as lung cancer, those issues arise from the carcinogens associated with smoking.
With just 4 simple ingredients, e-juice and vaping are far safer than cigarette smoke that contains a large amount of chemicals, 69 of which have been proven to cause cancer according to the National Cancer Institute of the United States.
