What Are the Ingredients in Vapes?

Vape ingredients are found in e-liquid, which is heated to produce vapour. Discover e-liquid ingredients in this article.

Vapes, also known as e-cigarettes, heat e-liquid to produce vapour. This means when we mention the ingredients in a vape, what we actually mean is the ingredients in e-liquid. There’s variety of different ingredients commonly found in vape e-liquids, including but not limited to:

- Propylene Glycol (PG)

- Vegetable Glycerine (VG)

- Nicotine

- Flavourings

Looking into each ingredient, we can explore their impact on the vaping experience.

What Is PG and VG in E-Liquid?

Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine, or PG and VG, are substances in various e-liquids. Many e-liquids contain both PG and VG. These two vape ingredients can alter a vaping experience, depending on their ratio. Adult smokers looking for a smoke-free alternative that has a similar, satisfying experience to a cigarette find that certain PG/VG ratios better suit their tastes.

PG and VG help dilute nicotine in e-liquids, but that’s not their only use. They’re also commonly used in other consumable goods. For example, they’re a common preservative in food products.

Nicotine in E-Liquid

Nicotine is a common substance in e-liquids. It’s important to remember that vapes and other smoke-free products are not risk-free and provide nicotine, which is addictive. Smoke-free products aren’t alternatives to quitting and aren’t designed as cessation aids. Vapes are only worth considering for adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke. The best decision any smoker can make is to quit tobacco and nicotine use altogether.

A manufacturer will typically add one of two types of nicotine to e-liquid: freebase or nicotine salts (also known as nic salts).

Nicotine Salts

Found naturally in the leaves of the tobacco plant, nicotine salts offer:

- A smoother throat hit

- Higher levels of nicotine

- Usually come at a higher cost

Freebase Nicotine

This form of nicotine was the first used in e-liquids. It’s created by transforming nicotine into a pure substance. The freebase nicotine vaping experience offers:

- A stronger throat hit

- Comparatively lower levels of nicotine

- Is generally lower-cost compared to nicotine salts

Flavourings in E-Liquids

Flavouringsgive flavour to e-liquids. Some e-liquids consist of various different flavourings, not just one. There are some classics such as tobacco flavoured e-liquids. However, the range of available vape flavours doesn’t end there. Each supplier has their own selection of vaping liquids and a range of available flavours. While some focus on creating an authentic tobacco taste for smokers, others explore unique flavours that are different from a cigarette.
