PG vs VG E-Liquid Guide

PG vs VG



PG and VG are non-toxic, safe for human consumption. Both have been widely used as food additives in a large variety of commercially available food products such as breads soft drinks cheese, cakes, ice cream and many more. PG and VG are the base liquids of e-liquids and produce the throat hit and vapour clouds when vaping.

Propylene Glycol 

  • Low viscosity with a consistency like water.
  • Lower density produces small vapour clouds.
  • Completely tasteless and delivers a sharper throat hit.
  • Carrier for the flavour and nicotine.
  • Does not affect or alter the flavour of your e-juice.

Vegetable Glycerine

  • It has a thick, dense consistency like syrup.
  • The main producer of large vape clouds.
  • Odourless and has a slight sweet taste.
  • Has a weaker throat hit.


Mixing PG and VG

PG and VG are pre-mixed together in your e-liquids in different mixed amounts, 50%/50%, 60%/40%, 70%/30% and 80%/20%. This is in reference to the VG to PG percentage ratio in e-liquid. When mixed you get flavour intensity and throat hit of PG and the large clouds of VG. PG/VG mix ratio will dictate the vaping experience you will have. High PG ratio more throat hit less vapour cloud, high VG ratio less throat hit more vapour cloud.



This will depend on several factors. Do want a strong a throat hit how much flavour you would like and how much cloud you want to produce, also the type of e-cigarette or vape mod you are using.
