A Beginner’s Guide to Choosing Quality E-Liquid

E-cigarettes are fast becoming the number one choice for people who are looking for a safer alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes. Unlike traditional cigarettes, e-cigs don’t contain actual tobacco and other dangerous ingredients like tar and carcinogens. E-cigs use a special liquid nicotine solution known as e-liquid or e-juice. This solution contains propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, flavors and water.

With the market saturated with all types of e-liquid products, how do you go about buying the best quality e-juice as a beginner?

Know Your E-liquid Flavor Preference

If you’re new to vaping, you’ll obviously have to test different e-liquids before determining which one best suits your taste and vaping experience. You will find some e-liquids tasty and others not so tasty. The e-juice market, has thousands of products and flavors to choose from. As a beginner, the wide range of e-juice options available can be overwhelming.

Search for reputable vendors who offer sample bottles and competitive prices for their selection of vaping products, according to vapour.com. Shopping from such vendors gives you an opportunity to test different e-juices to determine what flavors you love. You can choose between tobacco and menthol flavors or opt for fruity and sweet flavors like grape, chocolate, cherry among others.

Choose a Nicotine Strength

E-juice products come with different concentrations of nicotine. Whether you’re switching from smoking to vaping or are a non-smoker trying your hand at using e-cigs for a new experience, it’s important to choose a perfect nicotine level. For beginners, starting light is the way to go with 6mg/ml or less. Heavy smokers who have been vaping will likely prefer higher levels of nicotine, such as 18-24 mg/ml.

It’s vital to stay within your limits as high nicotine levels can be lethal. For non-smokers, zero-nicotine e-juices are also available. Choosing vape juice that matches your current nicotine level is essential, especially when you’re making your initial switch to e-cigs. According to Ecig Expert, your journey with e-cigs will be much easier when you select the right nicotine level.

The Importance of Throat Hit

Throat hit is the feeling of e-cig vapor on the back of your throat as you vape. The type of e-juice you buy and the type of e-cig device you use will impact your throat hit experience. Many people who have been smoking tobacco cigarettes look for e-juices that can deliver optimal throat hit. E-juices with additives like alcohol, cinnamon, and menthol also contribute to the throat hit level.

There is a notion among e-cig users that the more the vapor produced, the better the vaping and throat hit experience. The fact is, e-cig users have different preferences and experiences when vaping. However, in a recent internet poll on throat hit, up to 78% of respondents answered that throat hit was very important when getting started with vaping.

Compare E-Juice Prices

The last thing you need to consider is the price of e-juice products. Going for cheap products doesn’t mean the e-juice should be of low-quality. Do your research to find the best vendors in the market offering the highest quality products at the most competitive prices. Keep in mind that not all vape juices are safe or regulated. Find out where and how the vape juice is produced and only buy from certified and reputable vendors in the vaping market.
