One of the questions we’re often asked, both online and in our Central London vape shops is whether DIY e-liquids need to be flavoured. After all, if you’re only looking to get your nicotine hit, there’s no real need to invest in an entire alchemist’s lab of flavour concentrates to find the taste that works for you, right?
Well… you’re right. There’s actually no reason, aside from personal preference, why you should add flavour to your e-liquid base. In this article, we’re going to take a look at some of other queries we have heard surrounding unflavoured e-liquid.
What is unflavoured e-liquid?
Most vape juices comprise of a base liquid made up of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG). Different ratios of these two products can help produce bigger clouds when vaping or a harsher throat hit when inhaling. Here at the F&S Vape Shop, we sell a variety of premixed VG/PG liquids that can be mixed to your required specifications and used straight from the bottle. They contain all the properties of a regular e-liquid, aside from the flavour.
Does unflavoured e-liquid have nicotine in it?
In its natural state, unflavoured e-liquid is just a combination of base oils that can be heated in a vaping device, inhaled and breathed out as vapour. It is not a natural source of nicotine. Fortunately, like any kind of vaping juice, you can add your own. Our pre-mixed bases can be supplied with nic salts or nic shots to give your desired nicotine concentration.
Is unflavoured e-liquid cheaper?
In a word, yes. If you’ve transitioned to vaping from smoking to save money and want to save even more, unflavoured juice is the way to go. Your VG and PG bases are the cheapest part of any e-liquid, with the nic salts falling not far behind. The most expensive component is often the flavour concentrate.
Is unflavoured e-liquid good for quitting smoking?
If you’re new to vaping, unflavoured e-liquid is great for reducing the number of cigarettes you smoke. It’s possibly the closest thing to smoking an actual cigarette but without those distinct aromas than many people find off-putting.
What does unflavoured e-juice taste like?
Not a trick question – after all, everything tastes of something, right? Unflavoured e-liquid has a very, very slight sweetness to it, which comes from the vegetable glycerine element of the base. When we say slight, we mean really slight – enough that you might just catch a hint of it in your mouth from time to time.
If you want to give unflavoured e-liquid a go, the F&S Vape Shop has you covered. You can buy premixed VG/PG bases from our online store or one of our Central London shops, as well as a range of nicotine salts and shots. Get in touch today for more advice.
