E-juice composition and ingredients
E-liquids are comprised of two prominent base substances in order to add smooth smoke flavor, which are PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin) in different combinations and strengths.
- PG is a lab generated liquid that is widely used in food items, medicinal drugs and various types of cosmetic products.
- It is a volatile and colorless liquid that makes it absolutely safe component providing the best e-juice flavor one could ever ask for. However, if consumed in excess it can led to chronic lung diseases like asthma and bronchitis.
Extracted from palm and soy oils, VG is also referred to as Glycerol. This is the second main component of e-juice after Propylene Glycol. With slightly sweet kin taste, this component adds in a rich consistency to e-juice imparting a real cigarette like flavor!
All e-juice liquids consist of flavoring agents that are mixed in the correct ratio to impart the same feel and flavor that a smoker would crave for! Sometimes distilled water is also used to dilute the concentration of heavy e-juices.
Nicotine is a major component that goes in preparing e-juice. It is mixed in varying proportions which is used to determine the strength of e-juice such as high and low strength varieties.
Today there is a great variety of e-juice available in the markets that come in attractive flavors like sweet drizzle, banana pie and strawberry milkshake. Cut wood which is a leading e-juice brand also offers esiquisite range of e-juices on its official online website.

Engaging into e-juice can be considered occasionally but making it a regular practice will bring in health implications that are no less than what can come through traditional smoking.
