 GUIDE TO E-LIQUID
  What’s in E-Liquid?
E-juice contains a combination of some of these four components: Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG), nicotine (or none if requested), and flavour concentrates. Flavour concentrates contain a mixture of components, as you will read below.
Propylene glycol ( C3H8O2) is a sweet tasting organic compound that is found in many food, beverage, and medical products and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for human consumption. It is a dial or double alcohol and mixes with water. PG typically provides the "throat hit" sensation of inhaled vapor As elsewhere stated, throat his is often important for former smokers who would like, as much as possible, to simulate the experience and feeling of smoking. A higher PG content in juice will lend itself to a stronger sensation in the throat.
Vegetable glycerine (C3H8O3) is a sweet tasting, water soluble polyol (sugar alcohol) that is often used to sweeten and preserve foods. VG is typically responsible for the visual vapour produced during vaporization of the liquid. A higher VG content lends itself to increasingly voluminous levels of visual vapour- often to surprising and almost humorous levels. Visual vapour is almost always a necessity for a satisfying experience.
Nicotine is or is not added (depending upon preference) in the form of a concentrate extracted from tobacco leaf into a carrier base of PG and/or VG.
Flavour concentrates used in e-juice are created with consumable goods in mind: food, coffee, tea, and many others. Flavour concentrates contain a combination of one or more of the following ingredients: PG, VG, organic VG, ethyl alcohol, organic ethyl alcohol, citric acid, and distilled water. Tobacco flavourings at Vaperite are made using a strenuous extraction process. We provide you with a natural or organic tobacco flavour free of the harmful additives found in cigarettes. In order to get to know your juice better, we have explained our categories of juices by the headings of “Organic”, “Natural”, and “Regular”. Below you will find explanatory notes helpful in making the distinction between one juice and another.
What is in the Organic, Natural, and Regular Vape Juice?  Organic Ingredients: Organic Vegetable Glycerin, Natural and Organic Flavors, and Organic Ethyl Alcohol. No sweeteners are added to Organic flavourings.  Natural Flavourings: Natural flavourings which may or may not contain ethyl alcohol and are based in PG and/or VG.  Regular Flavourings: Artificial flavourings, sometimes in conjunction with natural and/or organic flavourings, which may or may not contain ethyl alcohol and are based in PG and/or VG.
Though you will find this information duplicated in the New to Vaping/Frequently Asked Questions section, we strongly recommend reading through this section as it will provide a great deal of useful information on several topics pertinent to vaping.
What is a mix type?
Most juice vendors offer the same general mix types for their juices. Usually vendors will offer  50/50 mix types, 70/30, all VG, or all VG. The ratios refer to the balance of PG and VG in the mix. A higher ratio of PG will create more throat hit; a higher VG ratio will produce more visual vapour. Sometimes people can tend have a negative reaction to PG which involves coughing or headaches, so many people vape all VG juices. Another important thing to consider is the nicotine strength of the juice.
The amount of nicotine in the juice depends on the vendor, though if one is vaping in order to curb a pack a day cigarette habit, juice with 18 mg of nicotine is around a good place to start. Vapers can either go lower, or higher, depending on their intentions.
How do I choose nicotine strength?
Nicotine strength is entirely personal. For those of you switching from traditional analogue cigarettes, picking your nicotine strength may seem daunting. Fear not, once you start vaping, you quickly know what level is too little or too much.
We suggest 18mg if you're a pack a day or more smoker. You might think that you need more nicotine since we offer a 26mg strength. This is not the case. You'll be vaping much more than you smoke when you start out, either out of necessity or compulsion or excitement. This is normal. The nicotine strength of 26mg is much too high for these new vapers. You'll feel lightheaded, nicotine'd out, or jittery if you pick a higher level than you need. We tend to reserve the 26mg for heavy, well established vapers.
If you smoke less than a pack a day, 12mg is typically the best solution to start out with. Remember, you can always titrate up or down if you feel you need more or less nicotine.
If you just want to vape and smoke casually or when drinking (Don't worry, many of us used to be the same way too!) aim for 6mg or less.
DIY e-liquid?? I can mix my own juice?
It may take a lot of time and experimentation for people to find their ideal mix types, so many vapers decide to take matters into their own hands, and create their own juices. Do it yourself or DIY mixing has become very popular in the vaping community, since the vaper can have complete control and knowledge of what's inside their juices. Typically the materials needed to get started with DIY mixing would be an array of plastic or glass pouring bottles, droppers, a supply of PG, a supply of VG, nicotine extract (usually in PG), and flavour concentrates. It is also critical to have the necessary safety materials on hand such has waterproof gloves, and safety glasses.

Mixes with higher PG will supply more of that throat hit, where more VG will produce more vapour. A small section of electronic cigarette users may experience unpleasant or adverse reactions to PG. In order to accommodate for this, we offer the majority of our juices in “All VG". Another important thing to consider is the nicotine strength of the juice.
The amount of nicotine in the juice depends on the quality and accuracy of the vendor and most importantly, your preference! If you are looking to choose this alternative to smoking, we offer some basic advice in making a good choice of nicotine strength, as you will read below.
