The Art of E-Liquid: Understanding Flavors, Strengths, and Ingredients

Are you wondering which e-liquid product is best for your vaping device? The three things distinguishing each e-liquid product are its flavors, strengths, and ingredients. You must learn and understand how to choose the right combination of flavors, strengths, and ingredients to enjoy your e-liquid vaping experience as much as possible.


One of the best things about e-liquids is their various flavor options. Many e-liquid products have added natural or artificial flavorings to enhance the taste in your mouth while vaping.

Examples of flavors for e-liquids include spearmint, honeydew mint, red apple, tropical rainbow, watermelon candy, bubble gum, mango, sour cherry, strawberry lemonade, and caramel milkshake.


Nicotine levels determine the strength of e-liquid options. The more nicotine in an e-liquid, the stronger the sensation for the user. The less nicotine, the less sensation. It is pretty straightforward.

The five primary nicotine strength options are 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg. People who want to quit smoking should start at 12mg strength and work their way down to 6mg, 3mg, and eventually 0mg.


The four primary ingredients in e-liquids are vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, flavorings, and nicotine. The flavorings and nicotine are self-explanatory, but the two ingredients you should understand are vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol.

Vegetable glycerin is a thick, clear liquid derived from palm trees or soybeans. It is added to e-liquid to produce thicker vapor clouds in the air. The more vegetable glycerin in your e-liquid, the thicker the vapor you can create.

Propylene glycol is an odorless liquid. It offers two benefits to users: a stronger throat hit and a stronger flavor sensation. The propylene glycol carries the flavoring and gives a sharper flavor. The more propylene glycol in the e-liquid, the stronger the flavor sensation.
