Tips for How to Choose the Right Vape Juice

Choosing the right vape juice will come down to a few factors that you will want to consider before making an investment. First off, you will want to consider what flavor to get. This will be highly personal and dependent upon what you’re in the mood for. Next comes the strength of your vape juice. You don’t want it to be too weak as this will be a waste of money, and if it’s too strong, you will end up feeling sick. Finally, you will want to consider what size to get. This article will explain all of this and more in detail.

What is E-Juice?

E-juice is made up of vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, flavoring, and nicotine (optional). The ratios of these may vary and produce different viscosities that may or may not be better in your specific type of vape. The VG or vegetable glycerin ratio is usually infused with nicotine, while the PG portion is all about flavor.

Some VG based nicotine can be labeled as 100% VG and marketed this way as the base and flavoring is all vegetable glycerin. Nicotine salts, or nic salts for short, are becoming more and more popular as the demand for pod devices increases. No matter what type of juice you end up getting, it will be either one of these varieties.

The ingredients will always be the same as the industry standard, though ratios might differ to be labeled as a certain variety. All e-juice has a flavor of some sort, though it is a matter of personal preference when it comes to choosing the right one. Choosing the right one will come down to one or a combination of the three features below.

Choosing the Right Flavor

Believe it or not, the most common inquiry when it comes to vape juice is whether there is a tobacco flavor. The reason for this is because certain vapes, such as those that utilize sub ohm vaping, utilize mouth to lung vaping which is very similar to how a cigarette is smoked. Those who are transitioning away from smoking still want a healthy alternative that can make use of their habitual style.

While there is tobacco flavored vape juices, there are even more varieties of fruity flavors. Even though most smokers want to start off with a typical tobacco flavor in their vape, most make a permanent transition into something sweeter as they are usually infused with nicotine as well. It makes more sense to vape something that tastes good and still delivers the nicotine you want.

Smoking suppresses your taste buds, whereas vaping does not and most users after a week of starting on vaping request sweeter flavors over traditional tobacco flavors. This is not surprising given the fact that tobacco is responsible for dulling this sensation. The right flavor will always be a matter of personal preference, and there are many sweet flavors to choose from.

Nicotine Strength

This will depend highly on how much you vape. Light users will not need as much and would do well with a stronger vape, such as a sub ohm vaporizer. These types of vapes produce more heat much quicker and so staying between 3 to 6mg/mL is ideal to find your sweet spot. This is even easier using a sub ohm vape.

Heavy users might want to consider something a little stronger such as 12mg/mL instead as they will find it much easier to get their fix from a higher strength using a high-powered device such as a sub ohm vape. Nicotine strength is important to consider as you will not want to go too high. In fact, you’re better off going too low as you can always work your way up.

Once you go too high and end up vaping more than you bargained for, you will start to experience dizziness and nausea from too much nicotine. Your best bet is to start out slow and work your way up until you find that sweet spot. Either way, stick with a good vape and go at a low dose of nicotine.

Bottle Size

The typical size for a bottle of vape juice will typically be 30mL or 60mL, though in places like Europe you will be hard pressed to find anything above 10mL. Most e-juice would come in glass bottles which looks rather nice, though is far from being practical. Today, if you want a glass bottle, it will usually come with a dropper.

The most common type of bottle is a squeeze bottle. These are much more convenient as they are not made of glass and are easier to use. The portability of plastic makes them safer and more ideal. Glass bottles are also known to leak, which is not much of a concern for those chubby plastic squeeze bottles.

If you are a heavy vape user, then it goes without saying that you will likely benefit more from a larger sized bottle. In any case, glass is an option but not as good as a plastic squeeze bottle. Choosing the right sized bottle will rely on how often you vape and the duration of the vape sessions.

Final Thoughts

Following these tips will allow you to make a more informed decision on choosing the right type of vape juice that is dependent on your preference and lifestyle. If you are a light or occasional vape user, then choosing a very weak vape juice may not actually be ideal. You will want something that is strong and will last you so that you don’t have to vape as frequently.

Those who vape more often might want to consider going for a vape juice that is a little weaker. This will balance out as you will vape more often but at a lower strength. In any case, all you must do is let your lifestyle be your guide and just go with the best one that suits your needs. Never go above your limits.
