E cig juice liquid is a liquid used in an electronic cigarette where the e-cigarette contains an atomiser whose purpose is to heat up the e –juice to evaporation, creating a mist which can be inhaled. The smoke usually seen from the e-cigarette is the vaporized vape juice.
E-juice is usually composed of up to five ingredients which are mixed and blended together, that is:
- VG (vegetable glycerin) makes 80%-90% of the e- juice
- PG (propylene glycol)
- Flavors (typically 10% -20%)
- Nicotine (typically 0%-2.4%)
- Distilled water when necessary
Steps to Follow When Making E-Liquid
Determining the Strength of Nicotine
In this step, the amount of nicotine required is determined using the following formula:
(Strength in milligrams/ML)(Volume in ML)=amount of nicotine in milligrams.
Transfer the nicotine to a bottle using a clean syringe in order to extract the right amount of nicotine based on the amount of e-juice to be prepared. Make sure that there are no air bubbles present in the syringe because this can alter the measurements leading to extraction more or less nicotine. If you realise that there is air in the syringe, it is advisable to point the needle upwards and then get the air to the top by tapping the syringe.
Transferring Nicotine to a Container
When the right amount of dilute nicotine has been obtained using the syringe, its is then transferred into a bottle for first test batch.
Choice of Flavor
In this step, the right flavour is chosen based on the desired taste of the end product. Good choice of flavour leads to a desirable final product, that is, a sweetly flavoured e-juice.
