What is e-juice made of?

All e juice is typically made up of three or four ingredients.

  • Propylene glycol (PG)
  • Vegetable glycerin (VG)
  • Nicotine
  • *Some juices have flavouring added

*Typically e-liquid ranges between 0mg-24mg, but some juices are only available in 0-6mg or 0-12mg.*

How does your vaporizer affect what nicotine level you should choose?

Remember, your device affects the nicotine…

  • Bigger ecig = greater power = more vapour = more intense throat hit (lower nic levels)
  • Smaller ecig = lower power = less vapour = less intense throat hit (higher nic levels)

The type of cigarettes you smoke also affects the level of nicotine you should choose…

*Every cigarette is different but the different levels of nicotine are typically as follows*

  • Matinee: 0-6mg per cigarette
  • Du Maurier & Belmont: 6-18mg per cigarette
  • Export, MLB, Next: 18-36mg per cigarette
