PG vs VG - How to Choose the Best Ratio for E-Juice?

Posted by Ian Kennedy

E-Juice is created of four major ingredients; PG, VG, nicotine and flavorings. The most common question vapers have when it comes to ejuice is the VG/PG ratio. Currently the new industry standard for VG/PG is 70/30, for counteracting the allergic reactions and throatiness of the PG. In this guide, we will review everything you need to know about VG/PG in your e-liquids. 

What is PG and VG?

PG is an acronym for Propylene Glycol; thin, sweet and provides a greater throat hit. High PG e-liquids are more friendlier in sub ohm tanks because wicking is faster and the percentage for gunking up the atomizers are reduced. Ejuices have gravitated away from higher PG due to the allergic reactions, but there still premium ejuice brands that offer these types of ratios.  

High PG E-Juice Ratios:

  • 50/50 i.e. Space Jam 
  • 60/40 i.e. Lost Art Liquids, Soda Licious, Muther Fluffer Liquids, 7 Daze
  • 65/35 i.e Glas E-Liquid

Commonly Found In:

  • Pet Food
  • Medicines
  • Beauty Products
  • Inhalers for Asthma

PG in Vaping:

  • Thin with Low Density
  • Faster Wicking
  • Great Throat Hit
  • More Flavor
  • Ideal for Sub Ohm Tanks

VG is an acronym for Vegetable Glycerin, made up of vegetable oil. Naturally sweet, thick and more viscous, VG has the tendency to gunk up atomizers quicker but eliminates the throat hit. Vapers who typically drip or cloud chase, choose higher VG ejuices because of the well-rounded vaping experience. 

High VG E-Juice Ratios:

  • 70/30 i.e. Glazed Donuts, Cosmic Fog, Naked 100, Moo E-Liquids
  • 75/25 i.e. Bad Drip, Clown Liquids
  • 80/20 i.e. Marina Vape, Breakfast Club E-Juice, One Hit Wonder
  • 85/15 i.e. GOST Pancakes, Ruthless Grape Drank, Beard No. 51
  • 90/10 i.e Ruthless Jungle Fever, GOST Milkhead, Snap Peach Iced Tea
  • 99/1 i.e The Milkman by The Vaping Rabbit 

Commonly Found In:

  • Sweetener Replacement 
  • Beauty Products
  • Pet Food
  • Soap, Creams
  • Baked Goods
  • Medicinal Creams
  • Dental Care Products

VG in Vaping:

  • Thicker Liquid
  • Dense Cloud Production
  • Less Throaty
  • Less Flavor
  • Smooth, Clean Taste
  • Gunks Up Coils Quicker 

The ever-changing vape industry is constantly adapting and giving the community new products such as hardware, accessories and new ejuices. There are endless flavors available on the market with different VG/PG ratios to satisfy all vapers. Once again, the new industry standard is 70/30, a balance between cloud production without sacrificing the flavor.
