E-Juice, Vape Juice, E-liquid

If your heard any of these terms and are wondering what is the difference between them, do not worry, they're all the same thing.

What is E-juice or E-liquid then?

E-liquid or E-juice is how is called the liquid used into vaping devices. On regular vape devices or open devices, you fill the tank with an e-juice of choice. On Disposable Vapes and Pod Systems the e-juice came pre-filled into the device or pod. E-juices are made of:

  • Propylene glycol: Propylene glycol is a viscous, colorless liquid, which is nearly odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste. It is a common food additive or ingredient in cosmetic products, spices, and natural flavors.
  • Vegetable glycerin: Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine, is a clear liquid typically made from soybean, coconut or palm oils. Vegetable glycerin is particularly popular in the cosmetic industry but has several other uses as well. It may also provide health benefits, ranging from skin health to better hydration and a strengthened gut. (Source: healthline.com)
  • Flavoring: Usually flavoring concentrates used to make e-juice are food graded. The final e-liquid flavor is define by mixing different flavoring.
  • Nicotine (optional): Optionally, nicotine can be added to the liquid what allow smokers to look at vaping as an alternative and possible a step to full smoke quitting.

All ingredients used to make e-juices are easily found and because of that, some Vape users like to make their own juice. Alternatively you can buy then  read to use with or without nicotine and even choose the nicotine strength.

Nicotine, Nic Salt and Freebase

Nicotine Strenght

As mentioned before, it is possible to use a e-juice with nicotine. E-juice manufacturers provide some nicotine strength options from 0mg/ml to higher number like 50mg/ml. Some manufacturers express the nicotine strength in percentage, the conversion is very easy, for example, a 5% nicotine strength is the same as 50mg/ml.

To define your ideal nicotine strength is too subjective. It is usually recommended to try a middle term and see if it suits you. Before choosing your strenth you should be aware that there are two main kinds of nicotine ingredients: Nic Salt and Freebase.

Nic Salt

Nicotine Salt (or Nic Salt) is naturally found in leaf tobacco. Using Nic Salt on e-liquids is the most efficient way to deliver nicotine to your body in terms of absorption. A large number of vapers say that nic salts deliver a more satisfying experience. That's because with nicotine salt it is easier to inhale with a reduced throat hit.

Freebase Nicotine

Freebase is the most close to pure nicotine we have. Freebase nicotine is pure nicotine with ammonia added to it. This is done because nicotine alone cant move efficiently throw our body cells.
Freebase creates a throat hit that is proportionally strong as the e-juice nicotine strength. It feels harsher on the throat, and that is the reason why some people prefer it. You can "feel" how much nicotine you are inhaling. The down side is that you cant inhale high concentrate e-juice as you would with Nic Salt.
