When shopping for e-Liquids, finding the best ratio of Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol can be a challenge. The different blends offer slightly different benefits in your vaping experience, and we are here on the Direct Blog today to delve into what makes these ratios so different and how to find the perfect blend.
In actuality, there is no such thing as the ‘perfect’ ratio of VG and PG, and this is simply because each common ratio does different things. Before we get into the nitty gritty, let’s talk about the difference between VG and PG. For more information, check out our What Chemicals are in Vape Juice blog.
In short, Vegetable Glycerin lends itself to a sweeter flavor, a bigger cloud, and a thicker consistency. Propylene Glycol has no flavor, is a thinner consistency, and provides slightly smaller clouds. The small differences between the two simply mean that there are differences in the ratios. Let’s dive into each of the most common ratios and what they do best.
A 70/30 VG to PG ratio is the most common blend to find in fruity and mellow flavors, as the 70% Vegetable Glycerin offers a mild sweetness and less residue on coils. Some delicious options with this ratio are Juice Head Peach Pear, Vapetasia Killer Kustard Strawberry, and Pachamama Fuji Apple Strawberry Nectarine e-Liquids.
The higher level of Vegetable Glycerin creates a sweeter flavor, so you will find this ratio in rich dessert e-juice flavors. Some decadent vape juice options with this ratio are The Pancake House Golden Maple, Bam’s Cannoli Birthday, and Barista Brew Co. White Chocolate Mocha e-Liquids.
A 50/50 ratio is almost only for nicotine salt e-Liquids, as the equal amounts balance out the added flavor of the nic salts and offer smaller clouds. Some fantastic nic salt options with this ratio are Zen Haus Salt Meditation, Coastal Clouds Salt Chilled Apple Pear, and Bad Drip Salt Cereal Trip e-Liquids.
These VG/PG ratios are a great help in understanding how vape juice works in your tank and why some blends are easier on coils than others.
