VG (Vegetable Glycerin) vs. PG (Propylene Glycol)
When it comes to e-juice, two terms constantly crop up: VG and PG. This can seem confusing to the newcomer, but knowledge of these two ingredients can vastly improve your vaping experience. Here’s our easy-to-follow guide on everything you need to know about VG and PG.
What are PG and VG?
In simple terms:
- PG and VG are the odorless liquids that are combined with flavor and nicotine to create e-juice.
- Both PG and VG technically belong to the alcohol chemical class (despite the name, they are not intoxicating). They are classified as sugar alcohols and are included in many consumable products.
- They produce vapor when heated, which allows them to be inhaled.
- PG and VG are not oils, and can’t cause any of the medical issues—like lipoid pneumonia—that inhaling actual oils can.
- The two fluids have a different consistency to each other and a slightly different taste.
- They have distinct mouth and throat sensations when vaped.
- Most modern e-liquid uses a combination of the two fluids, though the ratio can vary dramatically.
- Some vaping starter kit set-ups can only work with a certain level of PG and VG.
Choosing the wrong PG/VG ratio can put first-timers off so be careful to choose the right level for your equipment.
