E-liquids and E-juice: PG vs VG plus Flavor List

This article will discuss two different types of vaping e-liquids and e-juices (btw, you can buy e juice here), PG or Propylene Glycol and VG or Vegetable Glycerin. PG and VG are the liquids that are mixed with flavoring and nicotine in order to create e-juices. They each have a different consistency and flavor to them thus creating a different experience.
