PG Free EJuice is a Good Choice for Many ECig Users
Many vapers and would be vapers are concerned about the dangers of the e-cigarette ingredient propylene glycol. But is PG dangerous? I can tell you that there is no scientific proof to date that it is. You can even ask the FDA as they have approved PG for use in thousands of foods, medicines and beauty products. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the use of propylene glycol in places like hospitals and food establishments years ago because it is a powerful deterrent against pneumonia, influenza, and other respiratory diseases when vaporized and inhaled.
Still, if you’re one of those people who is afraid of what you don’t know, or you’ve read a terror tactics story circulated by the political anti-vaping faction, or you are simply one of the 6% of the population who is allergic to propylene glycol, please read on.
Finding E-Liquids Without Propylene Glycol
Propylene Glycol is a standard additive in non-refillable cartridge-style e-cigarettes. It forms the liquid base for the nicotine and flavor ingredients. It also gives vapers the throat hit they crave, but more ecig companies are offering eliquid mixtures with little or no propylene glycol. Cartridge style e-cigarettes Eversmoke and Blu ECigs have about 30% PG, lower than most…but the problem with those brands is that the flavors may not be to your liking.

Here’s the Good News
More and more ecig companies are offering low or PG Free e0liquids. We recommend several outstanding e-liquid companies – Virgin Vapor, Firebrand and Mt. Baker Vapor because they offer the best tasting ejuices with zero (or close to zero) propylene glycol. Their e-liquids are made with USP grade Vegetable Glycerine, purified water (if you want it ) and nicotine (if you want it). If you want any percentage of Propylene Glycol added to the ejuice, (for the throat hit effect), you can order whatever percentage you like.
I personally recommend Firebrand’s excellent Sub-OHM line of e-liquids which are 80% VG. Not only are their flavors outstanding beyond all others I’ve tested, they are Diacetyl, Acetoin and Acetyl Propionyl Free. The Sub-OHM line may be used in any vaporizer with any OHM resistance.
Firebrand was awarded the Top 5 Shining Stars of U.S. E-Liquid Manufacturing by Vapor Digest Magazine.
Both Virgin Vapor and Mt. Baker Vapor create 100% pure US made e-liquids from your specifications. Virgin Vapor is 100% PG FREE, is completely organic and is certified under European Organic Standards.
Virgin Vapor was awarded several choice awards in 2013 and is off to a great start this year as well. With new flavors coming out each month, VV is still one of the most successful, and rewarding organic e liquid brand in the US. They now carry 240ml bottle sizes in 10 amazing flavors.
What Are the Other Advantages of Custom Mixed E-Liquids?
If you want to go PG free, you many not get the throat hit you desire, however, customizing your flavor levels and/or nicotine levels allows you to create the perfect blend for your taste preference! Both e-liquid companies mentioned give you that option. You may have to experiment a bit, but the small size custom e-liquid bottles and sampler packs are relatively inexpensive.
Remember, you won’t sacrifice vapor volume because the main ingredient, USP Vegetable Glycerine is what produces those massive clouds. With hundreds of flavors from which to choose, you may discover vaping is not only a great alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes, it’s an adventure.
