E-liquid is the liquid substance that is vaporized in electric cigarettes. On the basis of just a few ingredients, many different combinations can be made with which the choice of e-liquids is virtually unlimited. Although e-liquid often contains nicotine, this is certainly not always the case. The liquid is evaporated with an e-cigarette by heating a coil in the device. This vapor is absorbed into the body and spreads into the lungs.
Difference between e-liquid and tobacco
With standard cigarettes, tobacco is burned at very high temperatures. The user inhales the smoke where there are other substances besides nicotine. A number of these substances such as tar and nicotine are very harmful to the body. With e-liquid, a liquid that consists largely of Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and / or Propylene Glycol (PG) is heated, creating vapor that is inhaled into the lungs. Both VG and PG are suitable for internal use and are also used in other products. People who are hypersensitive to PG can see skin and throat irritations.
With disposable e-cigarettes and POD systems it is not always possible to top up the device yourself. In that case, special cartomizers must be purchased. When topping up manually, the mixing ratio between PG and VG must be taken into account, otherwise you run the risk of splashing or "dry hits" because the liquid cannot spread well in the electric cigarette. With a basic e-liquid you can create your own flavors, there are also CBD e-liquids, Shake 'n Vape liquids and Nicotine Salts. The latter category works with a dry substance. In all categories there is a choice for products with or without added nicotine. The flavors vary from normal tobacco to fruit flavors and coffee.
