What is E-juice or Vape Juice?
- Jun 28, 2018 -

If you’ve heard the term “e-juice”, “vape juice” or “e-liquid” before and not been sure what it was or what was in it, have no fear, the guide below will answer your questions.


With the popularity of personal vaporizers and box mods on the rise, e-juice and vape juice has become a huge part of vaping throughout the world.


First and foremost. To clarify, e-juice, vape juice and e-liquid are all terms to describe the same thing and can be used interchangeably to describe the same thing.


At Veppo, we call our liquid, e-liquid. It’s premium, kosher, Diacetyl-free and registered with the FDA. Our e-liquid is the best e-liquid you can buy.


What is e juice or Vape juice 

  • E-juice or vape juice is the fluid used in vaporizers and personal electronic cigarettes that creates the actual vapor. It contains the actual nicotine but can be made without nicotine depending on personal preference.


  • The vaporizer heats up the e-juice to between 200 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit which turns it into vapor that you then inhale.


  • E-juice or vape juice is a mixture of water, food grade flavoring, a choice of nicotine levels or zero nicotine, and propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG).


  • Food grade flavoring is the same type of flavoring that is used in foods. It is safe to consume and often, quite delicious.


  • Propylene Glycol is a substance that is used in many flavorings to help distribute the taste and any food grade flavoring evenly throughout the liquid. PG is used in vanilla extracts, food coloring, and in various types of medicines.


  • Vegetable Glycerin is a vegetable based liquid that is thick and sweet.


  • VG and PG make up about 90% of the contents in e-liquid with nicotine and food grade flavoring making up the remaining 10%.




There is a great debate among the vaping community between those that like PG e-liquid and those that prefer VG. What’s the big difference between the two? We’ve put together a list of some of the benefits of using both types of e-liquids.

 PG vs VG Difference



  • PG liquid is typically thinner than VG. This makes it easier for the wax or cotton on the atomizer to absorb the liquid.


  • Because it is thinner in consistency, it will typically produce less residue on the tank and atomizer. This makes for a much cleaner vaping experience.


  • PG e-juice or vape juice has no flavor at all which means it will have no impact on the overall flavor of the e-liquid.


  • It produces a better throat hit similar to smoking a cigarette. Many users love this sensation and choose PG e-liquid for this reason.


  • Some users have reported experiencing an allergic reaction to PG e-juice or vape juice .




  • VG e-juice or vape juice tends to be a bit thicker and more viscous. Because of this, it tends to produce more residue and build-up on vaporizer parts and can also reduce the lifespan of atomizers.


  • VG e-juice or vape juice has a sweet taste to it. It is commonly used as a sweetener in sugar replacements.


  • VG e-juice or vape juice produces thicker clouds of vapor due to its overall denser composition. This is one of the main benefits of using VG over PG.


  • With e-juice or vape juice, most users report a minimal throat hit in comparison to PG liquids. VG e-liquid tends to produce a smoother hit.


  • Few people have reported experiencing allergic reactions to VG e-juice or vape juice. Some people have reported that phlegm can build up in the throat after using VG e-juice or vape juice regularly.


Whether you choose a VG or PG it comes down to personal preference. Want a bigger throat hit? PG is the way to go. Looking to blow out enormous, thick clouds of vapor? VG is the best bet. Veppo produces both PG and VG e-liquids as well as mixtures of the two. We recommend trying both types as well as the hybrid mixtures to determine which one you prefer.




E-liquid comes in a variety of different strengths of nicotine. Many users purchase e-liquid with zero nicotine. The standard strengths we use at Veppo are as follows:
Ejuice with pointed tip

  • No Nictoine - 0 mg

  • Low - 8 mg

  • Medium - 11 mg

  • High - 16 mg

  • Extra High - 24 mg


The strength you choose will be dependent upon your individual tolerance. Those that switch to vaping after being heavy smokers tend to choose higher concentrations of nicotine. Vapers who smoked only a small amount before switching to vaping tend to purchase lower strength e-liquid. The best bet is to experiment and see which nicotine strength works best for you. We recommend starting with a lower level and moving up. 




All e-liquid produced by Veppo is premium e-liquid. The main ingredients that are proven to be safe for human consumption. When using Veppo e-liquid, you can rest assured that you will only be inhaling VG, PG, food grade flavoring, and nicotine (if you choose).


Regular e-liquid tends to be a bit cheaper, but may contain other chemicals that are harmful for human consumption. While regular e-liquid can be cheaper, it may not be as safe to consume.

What we do know for sure, is that it's safer than cigarette smoke.
