Vaping Basics

Before we dive into the mixological magic, let’s grasp the basics. Vaping, the inhalation of vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or other vaping device, has become a cultural phenomenon. It’s not just about nicotine anymore; it’s about a sensory experience.

Why to Mix?

As you know mixing is the art and science of making cocktails. It’s not merely about pouring liquids into a shaker; it’s an intricate bunch of flavours, textures, and aromas to make the best e-liquid of your choice with a blend of perfect PG/VG ratio.

Blending E-Liquids with Mixological Expertise

  • E-Liquid Essentials

E-liquids are the main product of vaping and traditionally come in flavours ranging from fruity to menthol and whatnot. You name the flavor and you will get it.

  • Mix Flavors

Making e-liquid cocktails involves combining vape juices thoughtfully by considering a nicotine strength of your choice and PF/VG ratios.

  • A Step-by-Step Guide
  • Know Your Vape Base

Begin with a quality vape base. The foundation matters. Choose a neutral base that complements various flavours without overpowering them.

  • Flavor You Want

Experiment with flavours, but keep balance in mind. A touch of citrus might elevate a rich tobacco base, creating a desired blend.

  • Nicotine Levels

Just fine-tune the nicotine level of your choice. Take care of nicotine strength as it worsens anxiety and depression. It also affects memory, concentration, self-control, and attention, especially in developing brains. It worsens anxiety and depression.

Vaping and Mixology Etiquette

  • Understanding Ingredients

Both vaping and mixology involve handling various ingredients. Knowing their properties and potential interactions is crucial for a safe and enjoyable experience.

  • Device Compatibility

Not all e-liquids are created equal, and not all devices are universally compatible. Ensure your chosen e-liquid suits your vaping device to avoid any unwarranted surprises.

  • Elevating Vaping to an Art Form

In the evolving landscape of vaping and mixology, crafting signature e-liquid cocktails represents a marriage of tradition and innovation. It’s not just about inhaling vapour; it’s about savouring a carefully curated blend of flavours. As we navigate this aromatic journey, remember that the art lies not just in the clouds but in the meticulous crafting of each drop. Cheers to the irresistible world where vaping and mixology intertwine!

Factors to Guide You in Choosing the Best PG/VG Ratio

The best VG/PG ratio depends on the kind of vaping experience you’re looking for. Below are a few factors to consider. 

  • Flavour and Throat Hit: For the best e-liquid flavour while vaping, it is better to go with an even PG: VG e-liquid ratio, i.e. 50:50. You can also go for an e-liquid with a higher concentration of PG to increase the throat hit, a PG: VG ratio of about 60:40.
  • Discreteness: If you’re out and about in public, the best way to keep your vaping discreet is by using high-PG e-liquids. Higher PG: VG ratio vapes are perfect for low-key cloud chasers who love staying under the radar, even when they light up at their favourite spot! However, no matter how much of an attention seeker you might be, remember that it’s illegal to use vaporizers in some public areas or indoors without permission from whoever owns that property first.
  • Cloud production: A high VG juice is the way for cloud chasers who exhale big, thick clouds of vapour. A VG: PG ratio of about 80:20 or 70:30 will get you humongous amounts of dense clouds. However, note that a high concentration of VG is not suitable for all types of e-cigarettes as it can easily clog the wick or coil, damaging the device. A sub-ohm vaping setup is ideal for high concentrations of VG. If the vape juice is too dense, add deionized water to reduce the e-liquid viscosity.
  • Smoothness: Choose shortfills with a higher VG concentration your throat will feel smoother. The viscous and oily nature of VG offers the smoothness that many people enjoy while vaping. However, the vape juice flavour in high VG liquids tends to be crowded since VG is sweet. The flavour is muted in other cases since VG is not the best carrier. To remedy the flavour issue, one can increase the power to produce more vapour, intensifying the taste of the flavour. However, it’s important to remember what power level (wattage or voltage) your coils are designed for to keep them from operating too high on either one!
  • The type of device: Your vaping device will primarily affect your ideal PG: VG ratio. PG vaporizes at low temperatures; thus, high PG concentration e-liquids work best with low-wattage devices. On the other hand, VG is a viscous liquid that takes time to soak up the wick. It is also highly susceptible to causing blockage or clogs in the coil. High VG concentrations work best with high-wattage vape devices or sub-ohm vapes.

As a side note, if you cannot find a pre-mixed e-liquid that matches your preferred ratio, you purchase the VG and PG separately and mix your e-liquid to achieve your ideal balance. With this in mind, you have the full freedom and capacity to personalize your e-liquid based on your vaping style.
