There are lots of reasons that e-cigarettes have taken the world by storm. With no secondhand smoke, you can enjoy them in more places. You can control the amount of nicotine you’re ingesting. Perhaps best of all, there is an absolute galaxy of choices when it comes to e-liquids. So you do your research and find the best online vape shop for you, then you get your first vaping kit.
So far, so good. The only problem is, while your kit probably included a couple of samples, perhaps you haven’t found an e-liquid you love. Perhaps you’re not wild about taking a chance on a new e-juice since if you don’t like it, it’ll be just one more unused bottle cluttering up your home. We get it. While we’re big believers in taking the plunge and trying out new e-liquids, not everyone is like that. If you’re a little more conservative when it comes to seeking out the right e-liquid, read on. We’ve got a few tips to help you find the perfect e-liquid to suit your tastes.
- Everybody has different tastes, which is one of the wonderful things about vaping. If you’re a former smoker, and you’re after a tobacco flavor, that’s doable. If you have a sweet tooth, you can find e-liquids that have rich chocolate and other dessert inspired tastes. For those who love fruit flavors, you’ll have a vast amount of choices. If you can’t decide, try buying 3-5 small bottles of different e-liquid flavors and create your own sampler.
- What if there’s a flavor you’re looking for, and you can’t find it, or it doesn’t quite exist? DIY experimentation has become hugely popular in the vaping community. Vapers will mix flavors together to create personalized masterpieces. There are incredible combinations of chocolate and smooth tobacco, coffee and mint, or vanilla and strawberry. It might not always work, but if you’re willing to experiment, you might end up creating your favorite flavor yourself.
- For some vapers, taste isn’t the main thing that attracts them. Instead, they are all about the clouds. If this is you, look for e-liquids high in vegetable glycerin, or VG. This causes vapers to exhale vapor in large, billowing clouds. Believe it or not, but competitive vaping leagues exist, where contestants do battle to see who can create the largest and most intricate clouds.
- You get what you pay for, and e-liquids are no different. If you’re not careful, you could find yourself with e-juice that’s made in inferior conditions, made with inferior ingredients, or all of the above. Cheap e-juice may be, well, cheap, but it won’t give you the best experience. Plus, it’s never a good idea to go on the cheap with products that go inside your body. Reputable manufacturers will list the ingredients that go into their mixtures, and they will explain the mixing conditions openly. Don’t settle for anything less.
Ultimately, you alone have a sense of what you like and dislike. Don’t be afraid to get adventurous, and take a shot at e-liquid flavors you wouldn’t ordinarily try. You might be surprised at what you end up loving.
