    Advantages of PG

    PG liquid tends to give you a better throat hit and a lot more flavor. VG on the other hand, allows your atomizer to produce a lot more vapor. Now, VG is a thicker and more sticky fluid, and although most people do not show signs of allergy with VG, there are minority groups who complain about having phlegm buildup in their throats. The more VG juice you use, the less of a throat hit you’re going to get – that’s the general idea.

    Re: Advantages of PG

    Vegetable glycerin based E-liquid usually contain at least 80% and as much as 92% Vegetable glycerin. This is the ingredient that produces the smoke like vapor when the e-cigarette is exhaled.

    Re: Advantages of PG

    Let me explain the difference between PG and VG.
    VG E-Liquid uses glycerol (also known as glycerin or glycerine) as a platform for the cigarette smoking and flavourings.VG is created from vegtables (VG = Vegtable Glycerin). In comparison to PG which uses propylene glycerin (also known as 1,2-propanediol or propane-1,2-diol) as a platform, good VG features are it tends to be wider, generates more fumes and enhances the fragrance from the flavourings. However, neck hit is reduced a little bit, types are not as noticeable and it tends to vape faster so a container might not last as lengthy.

    Propylene glycol is a clear, colorless, syrupy liquid, which is odorless and tasteless. It is used in the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. It has many uses and is a very versatile substance. This wide use means that much is known about the safety of this material. Propylene glycol is safe by Food and Drug Administration.

    Lots of detailed descriptions of PG, that`s great Honestly, so far I have only read about its negative sides and I was sure that its positive ones are more than the negative ones.

    I am allergic to PG, It makes me get hives, dries out my skin bad and I break out with acne, not normal for someone almost 50 years old.

    Max VG juice needs much more flavoring in it than a PG/VG mix and even with almost twice the flavoring used a 50/50 - VG/PG juice will taste better. Even 30% PG in a juice will normally taste better than a max VG juice but will produce less "clouds".

    VG dominant juices won't work in all tanks, due to the thickness which makes them not wick as good, a 50/50 - PG/VG juice will work in just about any tank made now.

    Higher VG juices are smoother than juices with higher PG content. Higher PG juices have a "throat hit" which is more like a cigarette inhale, which may make it easier to quit smoking by being more similar to what you are used to.

    * All in all it comes down to your preference of what mix of PG/VG is right for you.

    I know some other vapers who are allergyc to PG and they could miss a lot from vaping this way.. It is great when someone manages to find alternatives which coulc even turn out to be better, requires a lot of persistence, great, Brian
