Find Your Favorite Flavor
One of the first things to think about when you’re shopping for e-juice is the type of flavor you want.
There are hundreds — if not thousands — of different e-juice flavors on the market, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a flavor that sounds appealing to you.
You can also combine e-juices to get a unique flavor that better fits your preferences.
Consider the Nicotine Level
If you don’t smoke or are a light smoker, it’s best to stick with low nicotine levels (6 milligrams or less).
Medium nicotine levels (9-16 milligrams) are better for average smokers, and high nicotine levels (18-36 milligrams) are meant for those who are heavy smokers.
PG to VG Ratio
The base of most e-juice products is either vegetable glycerol (or VG) or propylene glycol (or PG). Some e-juices also are made with a combination of the two.
Both are good, but they have different effects.
E-juice made with propylene glycol has more of a flavor but results in a weaker vapor. Products made with vegetable glycerol has a sweeter taste and minimize the other flavors in the product, but they produce more vapor.
If you’re using an e-juice that contains a combination of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerol, check the ratio before you buy. 40:60 PG to VG is the most common ratio.
Consider Your Budget
In the long run, vaping is more cost-effective than smoking. If you waste a ton of money buying different e-juices, though, you’re going to end up spending a lot more.
Be particular about the flavors you buy to avoid wasting money on subpar products. Try to buy products that are on sale when you can, too. You can see more here about popular e-juice deals.
Try Before You Buy
If possible, try to sample the e-juice you’re considering before you buy it.
This will help you know it’s a good fit for you without having to spend your hard-earned money on a product you don’t even like.
If you’re shopping for e-juice online, check to see what the retailer’s return policy is. Can you exchange the e-juice for a different one? How long do have to make your returns?
