Q: What is the difference in PG/VG and just VG? Do I have to dilute the VG in any way? Or can I just vape it? At a loss here because you've got some flavors that I want to try out, and I don't understand the difference. Sorry if it sounds weird that I don't know the difference seeing as I am a serious vapor, but it never crossed my mind as to just smoking VG.
A: The PG/VG is the base that we use for our liquids. We use a 60 PG 40 VG mix as we have found this to be "just right" for almost all of our customers. PG by itself is a bit harsh and thin and the VG by itself is very smooth but is very thick and cannot be used in regular clearomisers. We believe that the 60/40 mix we use provides just the right amount of "throat hit" while maintaining the right amount of smoothness and also works in all of the tanks that we offer. VG will provide a very smooth feel and some people prefer this and some are actually sensitive to PG so they just use VG. If you want to use 100% VG you will need to use either a bottom coil tank or a cartomiser tank.
Q: Do your juices contain Diacetyl? Thanks.
A: Baker White and NicQuid have eliminated these chemicals in their juice, and they both have their juices independently tested. We are very selective in what flavorings we choose to use in our juices by selecting flavors that are Diacetyl free according to the flavoring manufacturer, but we have not had our juice independently tested as a whole solution like BW and NicQuid have. This is because we do not make our juice in batches, but bottle by bottle, and technically each bottle is a new batch.
I will paste below links to information about all of these chemicals from different sites. These pages can explain it better than I can. Keep in mind that the adverse effects caused by inhaling these chemicals happens at levels far exceeding any amount that could be vaped. A person would have to vape around 80ml per day of a juice containing high amounts of these chemicals to reach the maximum SAFE amount inhaled per the FDA regulations on diacetyl..
Q: I was using another blend, but the most recent blend says 90% VG on the bottle. My skin cleared up some, but it's still not good. Obviously, I'm allergic to something. After looking and seeing I'm smoking 90% PG, could I be allergic to PG?
I'm still gonna Vape though because it's way better than smoking. Just wish it didn't make my skin oily.
A: Yes, you may want to switch to something that is much lower in PG or 100% VG. Some are allergic to PG or higher concentrations of PG. Our Regular blend is 60PG, 40 VG but we also offer 20 PG, 80 VG and 100%VG.
Q: When will Hoosier e-juice be available to non-Indiana residents?
A: We are hoping it will be soon. It will be posted on the website when it is available again.
Q: I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as to what liquid I could try as I quit smoking about 8 months ago and have been vaping since. I have noticed that my skin has been breaking out bad. I can feel the oil coming out of my skin and it is causing terrible break outs. I have always had oily skin but never had break outs like this before. Is there a blend that I could try that might be better?
A: What blend (PG/VG) mix are you using?
Q: What is the difference between the regular sweetener and extra or no sweetener?
A: Regular is just that, regular sweetener. Some people like a bit more sweetness so we offer a boost of sweetener for those that like that and no sweetener is no sweetness at all. Some of the flavorings that we have do have somewhat of a sweetness to them but most people get at least regular.
Q: Brent....Thank you for recommending the "Kanger Subbox" I am loving it !! Do you have juices that do NOT contain DIACETYL? I am interested in trying your Pineapple Orange. Do you happen to have just plain Pineapple? I do not see it available on list.
A: The only juice that we have that is guaranteed to be 100% Diacetyl free are those from Baker White. They put a lot of time and effort into being Diacetyl free.
On the subject of Diacetyl, I am going to try and post a few articles soon that have come out in response to the major media scare campaign on Diacetyl. Like most anything else in the news, they are blowing the dangers of vaping e-liquids containing diacetyl way out of proportion.
Q: I have never ordered one of your house blends, but wanted to give them a try. What do flavor boost and base mean?
A: The flavor boost means we add another 50%, over the regular recipe, to your bottle. We prefer you try the juice as we had originally formulated it first, before you flavor boost it, but that is up to you. The base is the ratio of PG(Propylene Glycol) and VG(Vegetable Glycerin).
The terms PG and VG refer to the main ingredient that is used as a base for the liquid.
The general characteristics of PG(Propylene Glycol) are:
1. PG is thinner than VG
2. PG tends to generate less vapor and disperses more quickly upon exhale
3. PG generally gives a stronger throat hit but as a result can leave you with a scratchy throat if you are not used to it and are using a 100% PG blend, such as the E-Liquid from Dekang.
4. A very small percentage of people exhibit a sensitivity to PG liquid and for that reason alone, prefer VG base instead.
The general characteristics of VG(Vegetable Glycerin) are:
1. VG is thicker than PG
2. VG tends to generate more vapor and tends to linger more
3. VG generally gives a lesser throat hit.
4. VG Does not wick as well as PG.
Generally, the best E-Liquids are blends using both PG and VG, but this depends on the type of atomizer you intend to use the E-Liquid in. If you are using a rebuildable dripping atomizer or a sub-ohm tank you would want a high VG or all VG mix, but typically at least 20% PG is recommended. If you are using a top coil tank, bottom coil tank, a cartomizer or a clearomizer you would want at least 40% PG.
