More vapour produced – VG is the main producer of large vape clouds. Due to its thick consistency it is capable of producing significantly more vapour than PG liquids. If you are a cloud chaser, mixes with a high VG content is best suited for you.
Lower flavour intensity - Unlike PG, vegetable glycerine has a slightly sugary note to it. Due to this it can slightly mask a flavours full potential, delivering a slightly lower flavour intensity to its PG counterpart.
Weaker throat hit – VG has a weaker throat hit than PG. If you find your flavours being a little to harsh and irritating your throat, mainly tobacco flavours, switching to a higher VG liquid should help alleviate this.
Slightly sugary taste and odourless – VG has a slight sweet taste to it. This sweetness makes flavours taste a little sweeter and can slightly mask the flavour.
Thicker consistency – Vegetable glycerin has a thick, dense consistency similar to the density of corn syrup.
Higher gunk build up – Because of VG’s thick consistency it can sometimes gunk up and clog cheaper atomisers, requiring more cleaning and replacing.
Low allergy risk – Vapers who have allergies to VG is very seldom in comparison to the amount of vapers with allergies to PG liquids. VG on the other hand has been known to build up more phlegm in your throat. Phlegmier coughing is common for consistent and constant high VG vaping.
Slower wick absorbtion – Due to the high viscocity of VG, it takes a longer amount of time to wick cotton buds as the desner liquid is slower absorbed. It is recommended that you wait a few minutes to let the VG liquid soak into the wick before vaping as you may get a burnt harshness due to the wick not being fully wicked yet if you vape it right after wicking.
