What is E-Liquid?
E-Liquid is a product designed to be used with Electronic Cigarettes or E-Cig. It is a most commonly a flavoured substance containing nicotine. When E-Liquid is heated inside the atomizer or clearomizer part of an E-Cig, it creates vapour which is then inhaled by the user who will experience an overall sensation similar to that of traditional smoking.
What is in E-Liquid?
The main 2 ingredients of E-Liquid include are PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin). These are both widely used in many food & pharmaceutical products. The other ingredients found in E-Liquid are nicotine and food grade flavourings. The actual level of Nicotine will vary depending on what strength is purchased.
What nicotine strengths are available?
Our current range of E-Liquid is available in 6mg (Low), 12mg (Medium), 18mg (High), 24mg (Very High). We also stock many flavours in 0mg, which contains no Nicotine. The actual mg rating relates to the percentage of Nicotine within the bottle, for example a 6mg strength bottle will contain 0.6% Nicotine, whereas a 24mg bottle will contain 2.4% Nicotine.
What nicotine strength is right for me?
As a standard rule, we recommend that any current 20 cigarettes a day smoker starts off with a 12mg or 18mg (12mg if it’s a light cigarette, 18mg for stronger brands) This will allow you to satisfy your nicotine craving whilst not being over powered by a very strong throat hit and ensure that you are not requiring to vape constantly to get your nicotine fix. Ideally overtime you can aim to decrease your nicotine intake, but we find one of the best ways to ensure that someone sticks to Electronic Cigarettes is to get the flavour & strength right early on to make your transition from smoking to vaping as smooth as possible.
Does E-Liquid produce smoke?
The VG (Vegetable Glycerin) part of the liquid is what creates the “vapour” which is actually water vapour and not in fact smoke. When the atomizer heats up the e-liquid is transformed into this vapour which is intended to be inhaled and exhaled as with traditional smoking.
Is E-Liquid safe?
All our Hangsen E-Liquid contains ingredients that have been declared safe for use. Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin are both products that are widely used in a range of everyday items such as medicines, mouth wash and bakery produce. All flavourings used are food grade flavourings, meaning they are the same type as used in cooking and baking etc.
As E-Liquid contains nicotine which is a toxic substance if swallowed or if it comes into contact with skin, it must always be kept out of the reach of children & animals.
