The Basics of E-Cigarette Liquid: Ingredients, Colours, and Flavours

E-Cigarette E-cigarette liquid is also commonly referred to as e-liquid or e-juice. It is the component of electronic cigarettes that provides the nicotine and other chemicals that produce the smoke and flavour when heated by a coil inside of the cigarette. This liquid is contained in the cartridges of the e-cigarette and in some types of e-cigarette you can re-fill the cartridge using your own bottle of e-liquid. Doing this not only saves money, but you can choose your favourite brand and flavour to smoke.

Ingredients

There are two basic ingredients in every e-liquid. If the liquid contained in an e-cigarette was made up of only nicotine and flavouring, it would be too thick and dangerous for you to consume. This is why something called carrier liquid was developed and added to the mix. Carrier liquids are added to the mixture in order to dilute the e-liquid to a desired strength. There are two carrier liquids used in all e-liquids today: propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine. These liquids have tested to be safe for consumption and also have neutral tastes so as not to interfere with the flavouring of the e-liquid.

E-liquid today is available in different strengths which depend on the amount of the carrier liquids used to dilute it. From strong or mild to nicotine free, you can find any strength of e-liquid you prefer. The stronger the liquid is, the less it is diluted by these carrier liquids.

Flavours

Probably the most exciting part of smoking electronic cigarettes for most people is getting to choose between the wide varieties of different flavours available. In 2009, major cigarette companies were banned from adding flavours to their cigarettes. Until the development of flavoured e-liquid came along, the only way for you to enjoy flavoured tobacco was through smoking a hookah.

The varieties of flavours available today are virtually endless. Here are just a few examples:

  • Natural flavours can range from those similar to any cigarette you prefer. E-liquid makers have mastered the likes of everyone’s favourites, from Marlboro and Camel to Davidoff.
  • Menthol flavours are the next standard to natural. These flavours can range from pure mint, wintergreen, peppermint, and more. There are e-liquids made using pure menthol or a combination of menthol and tobacco.
  • Fruit flavours are very popular and are available in just about any combination you can dream of. Of course, you can find the basics like mango or watermelon, but if you are feeling adventurous there are e-liquids offering flavours such as sweet tea, limeade, and pina colada.
  • Dessert flavours are available for those who are looking for a real treat in their e-liquid. These flavours would never be possible with tobacco cigarettes and offer a wide range of delectable possibilities such as Belgian cocoa, coffee milkshakes, and strawberry cheesecake.
