Video Transcript: PG VG Explained by Lizard Juice
What's up guys, Big Jay coming back at you again today. Today it's kind of like a newbie day if you will. It's for folks that are new to vaping. And I'm gonna have a couple of these videos coming out, because I think it's only fair that vapers have all these different channels for all the big equipment, and stuff like that. But if you look around the folks that are new, this will probably turn them off. So I figured, let's do some stuff for the new folks. So anyway, today I'm gonna explain some terms that if you're just getting into vaping you'll probably hear it a million times and you might not know what it is. It's PG and VG. And I'll explain what they are. PG is Propylene Glycol, okay. The PG in the e-liquid is gonna be your flavor carrier. The more PG that is in your liquid, the more the flavors that... Or the flavourings that are added to the juice are actually gonna show through when you're vaping.
Most of the higher nicotines, like the 24s, 18s, 12s, and things of that nature are gonna be high in PG, because they want the flavor to come through. Six... Six is 50-50, it can go either way. There's high VG blends in six, and high PG blends in six. So speaking of VG, VG is gonna be Vegetable Glycerin. The VG is what's gonna give you the cloud, okay. The flavor is kind of muted. Other... If you took the same juice, and you did it as a, let's say, 70/30 PG to VG blend, you would... The taste would jump out at you, but the cloud wouldn't be all that magnificent. If you took that exact same juice and just change the PG/VG ratio to 70 VG and 30 PG, you would notice the flavor is now not quite what you were used to, it's a little bit more muted, but you're gonna get the big cloud.
Most of the stuff out there right now for beginners is 50/50 to 70/30 PG to VG okay. Because like I said, they want the flavour to come through. And most of the stuff once you get down to like sixes, three, zeros in equipment like this, it's gonna be a higher VG. So the flavour, yeah, granted, it's a little muted, but you're chucking clouds. And that's kind of what people want. Now, don't get me wrong, even if there isn't a whole lot of VG in your juice, you're still gonna get a decent cloud, it's not like it's gonna be just a little wisp of air, and it's nothing there. So don't worry about that too much. Use what works for you, but I will tell you the starter devices are more geared for a higher PG ratio, just so you know. These are definitely geared for higher VG. So make sure you get the right equipment, and actually that'll be another video. So until next time, Big Jay juice, that's what PG and VG is. See ya.
