Before describing how to make vape juice, we will first examine the structure of an e-cigarette. An e-cigarettes has striking resemblance to a pen. They come with a cartridge that is connected to a charger. When electricity is passed through the cartridge, the vape juice is converted into vapor which is inhaled by the user. The nicotine levels in the cartridge varies from 0% to 24%. To make vape juice, you would need propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. This makes up 90% of the solution. Both the contents are mixed in the ratio 50:50, 70:30 or 30:70. PG and VG differ in taste. Propylene glycol is odorless and colourless. PG enhances throat hit in the sense that they increase the effect of vaping. Vegetable glycerin is extracted from plants. VG is colorless, odorless and is mildly sweet. FDA has declared that PG is safe for consumption. Propylene glycerin is primarily used in the production of cosmetics and as a food ingredient. Both the components are added to make vaping more effective. Vegetable glycerin is thicker and requires time to convert it into vapor. The mixture containing more amounts of vegetable glycerin would require more time for the vape juice to be converted into vapor. The solution containing high amounts of vegetable glycerin also requires a powerful charger to convert the mixture to vapor. The vapor comes in different flavor but produces more smoke than the traditional cigarette. Pre-mixed ready to use eliquid is also available online or in vape shops.
The remaining 10% of the solution consist of nicotine. Vegetable glycerin is added to even the spread of nicotine in the solution. The mixture is heated using the charger. Temperature from 400 to 700 F is sufficient to convert the vape juice to vapor. There are some tips to keep in mind. Always dilute the nicotine before adding to the solution containing PG and VG. Keep this solution away from children and pets. Do not expose the liquid to your eyes or clothes. Wash off the solution immediately if it falls anywhere on your body. E-cigarettes have a lot of benefits compared to the traditional smoking methods. In the traditional way of smoking, the nicotine directly goes into your lungs creating tar. Using e-cigarettes, you can dilute the levels of nicotine according to your wish. Here, the nicotine is converted into vapor first before inhaling.
If you are a heavy smoker and wish to control your level of nicotine intake, switch to e-cigarettes. Control your level of nicotine intake from 44% mg to 16%mg to 8% mg to finally nil. Smoking e-cigarettes might cause dry mouth for some users. Popcorn lungs, rash in skin, headache, etc. are prevalent among e-cigarettes users. The main advantage of using e-cigarette is that, they cause no dental damage. With the traditional smoking technique’s, nicotine directly enters your mouth. The chances of dental flaws and discoloration of teeth is hence higher. Smoking e-cigarettes however produces a lot more smoke than the traditional smoke techniques. This may serve as a threat to the environment, adding to pollution.
