If you like to vape, but want to get creative and make your own vape juice, here are four main ingredients that you need to create your own vape juice.
For the base of your vape juice, you are going to need to create a base out of vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. These are often referred to as VG and PG, respectively.
Propylene glycol is used in variety of products and is colorless and odorless chemical. It will help enhance the throat hit of the e-juice that you create. Vegetable glycerin is made from vegetables and is a natural product. It is a thicker substance that adds a little sweetness to your e-juice. It also controls how thick the vapor is. If you want thicker vapor, you are going to want to use more vegetable glycerin in your base. If you don't want thick vapor, then stick to a fifty-fifty split of these two substances.
Next, you are going to want to add nicotine to your e-juice if you already smoke. However, if you don't smoke, you can actually make e-juice and enjoy the vapors without nicotine. The point of adding nicotine is to use vapor instead of cigarettes to get your nicotine hit.
You can purchase food-grade nicotine in a variety of different strengths. If you smoke a lot, you may want to go with a higher level of nicotine. If you are a more casual smoker, you may want to go with a lower level of nicotine. It is best to start with less nicotine in your mixture, as too much can ruin your juice.
One of the most important part of your vape juice mixture is the flavor. You are going to want to use water-soluble flavoring that is made to resist high temperatures. It should also be food-grade quality. You don't want to use any flavoring that contains either sugars or oils; these types of flavors will not burn and vape properly.
When adding flavor to your e-juice mixture, remember that less is more. Start with a lower amount of flavoring to see how it tastes, as the flavoring can be overpowering. It is best to go with less flavoring and then gradually add more until you get to the right mixture of flavor. Be creative with your flavorings and have fun mixing them up and trying out different flavors.
