What is E-Juice?
E-Juice is the liquid put into an electronic cigarette or vapor product that delivers nicotine* to the vaporizer user.
*not all E-Juice contains nicotine
What is the Difference Between E-Juice and eLiquid?
Some people prefer to say E-Juice (or juice) and others prefer to say eLiquid/E-Liquid, they are the same thing. E-Juice has become the most commonly used term in recent years along with “Vape Juice”. Though, many in the community feel that the original term eLiquid is more appropriate, as it can be less appealing to children.
What is E-juice’s Ingredients?
E-Juice/eLiquid is made with four ingredients; PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerin), flavoring, and nicotine (optional).
Both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are non-toxic organic compounds and areconsidered safe for human consumption. In fact, they are widely used in a variety of commercially available foods.
What is Vegetable Glycerin (VG) & Propylene Glycol (PG?
Vegetable Glycerin also known as Glycerol is a simple polyol compound. It is a colorless, unscented, viscous liquid that is sweet-tasting and non-toxic.
Propylene glycol, also called propane-1,2-diol, is a synthetic organic compound. It is a viscous colorless liquid which is nearly odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste.
Both PG and VG are found in many everyday products we consume such as, toothpaste, ice cream, chap stick and even inhalers.
What is Nicotine and is it Dangerous?
Nicotine is a potent parasympathomimetic stimulate and an alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants.
Nightshade family of plants include, tomatoes, potatoes, tobacco, eggplant and more.
Nicotine acts as a stimulant in mammals when absorbed in small doses while in high amounts (50mg+) can be very harmful and dangerous*.
What is Pre-Steeped?
All of our juice has been pre-steeped before dispatch. This means no more buying e-liquid and having to wait days or even weeks for it to reach full flavor!
Does eJuice Damage Plastic Tanks?
Some juice flavors, commonly known as ‘tank crackers’, contain elements that can cause damage to certain plastic tanks. Although there are several different kinds of plastics used to make tanks, we recommend erring on the side of caution, even though some plastics will not crack. Damage to plastic tanks can range from etching the inside of the tank to causing it to crack completely in half. Common juice flavors that may cause this are as follows –
- Juices containing lemon flavoring
- Juices containing orange flavoring
- Juices that contain a high volume of citric acid (commonly found in lemon and the like)
- Juices that contain anise (black licorice flavoring)
- Juices that contain cinnamon (the candy kind, not bakery cinnamon)
What is Diacetyl?
Diacetyl is an organic compound that is a yellow or green liquid with an intensely buttery flavor. Diacetyl is also a chemical that was found to be a prominent volatile constituent in butter flavoring and air at the microwave popcorn plant initially investigated by NIOSH. Quite a few of the workers became sick with bronchiolitis and that is why some call it Popcorn Lung. As a result of the workers becoming very ill, the major popcorn manufacturers have removed Diacetyl from their products.
The knowledge on Diacetyl and Popcorn Lung become important in vaping because there could be Diacetyl in some flavoring used to make eLiquids. Most eLiquid companies will send their eLiquid to be tested for Diacetyl and you can see VapeWild’s Test Results Here!
Although there could be Diacetyl in some eLiquids, it is a known fact that cigarettes have more Diacetyl than most eLiquids.
