If you want to quit smoking and start vaping instead, you might be confused about the term PG/VG concentrations.

There is a lot of misinformation concerning PG and VG in the vaping world, but don’t worry. In this article, we will explain the exact meaning of PG and VG – as well as their differences

<p">What is PG?

PG is also known as Propylene Glycol and it is a chemical produced from the reaction of propylene oxide with water. It is used as a stabilizer and it keeps food moist. Even if it sounds like something that is dangerous, in fact, studies have shown that PG is safe to ingest orally. Much more than this, Propylene Glycol is tasteless and it does not interfere with any flavor that is added to a mix.

Advantages of Propylene Glycol

  • Low viscosity
  • The more PG in your e-liquid, the stronger throat hit achieved
  • Less time and power to achieve optimal vaping temperature

What is VG?

VG is a natural chemical, derived from vegetable oil and it is also known as Vegetable Glycerin. It is odorless and it has a sweet taste and a high viscosity. VG is sometimes used in food products as an artificial sweetener and it has been deemed safe for human consumption, including inhalation.

Advantages of Vegetable Glycerin

  • High consistency
  • The more VG in your e-liquid, the more vapor achieved
  • Sweet taste

PG / VG Ratio

The PG/VG ratios are represented in percentages. There is no perfect ratio. You can choose the PG/VG ratio according to your desires. Keep in mind that a higher VG means more vapor and a higher PG means better throat hit.
