Are Vegetable Glycerin E-Juices Better?

I knew it was only a matter of time. Seriously. It’s only a matter of time until the whole e-juice scene starts breaking down into two camps.

There is the synthetic camp. This is the old-school camp or people who prefer their e-juice formulations nice and strong. These are people who used to smoke a lot of cigarettes, but they migrated due to health and social reasons to vaping. In their minds, the compounds that remind them of the strength and kick of natural nicotine-based products are closer to the “real” vaping experience than “softer” or more natural solutions.

On the other end of the spectrum are people who took their shift to a healthier nicotine inhalation practice to its farthest logical extent. These are people who are all about all-natural vaping experiences. In fact, they are so focused on healthy vaping that many of them have cut out nicotine out of the picture entirely.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself that this defeats the purpose. After all, the main reason why a lot of people picked up vaping in the first place is because they want that nice nicotine rush. That nicotine kick is what keeps people coming back.

Well, there’s a growing population of people who are into vaping because of the flavor. That’s all they’re into. That’s why they’re more into all-natural and less toxic forms of e-juice.

Now, this may seem pretty straightforward. It may seem like we have very clearly drawn out camps, but this is where vegetable glycerin or VG e-juices come in.

Vegetable glycerin can be quite controversial because it may not be what it seems. When boosters of the all-natural vaping experience make a big deal out of vegetable glycerin, they may be skipping the fact that it all boils down to how this compound was made.

Just like with other ingredients out there in the market, you can make things in an all-natural way or you can use heavy duty industrial processes to come up with something that is heavily processed. This applies to food, this applies to shampoo, this applies to all sorts of personal care products. It definitely applies to the stuff that you inhale.

So are vegetable glycerin e-juices from necessarily better? Well, the question boils down to the word “necessary.” It doesn’t automatically follow. It all depends on how the product was made.

If the vegetable glycerin compound of the e-juice you’re using went through some heavy chemical processing, chances are, the resulting e-juice product may not be all that healthier than other options on the market.

So do yourself a big favor and don’t get too carried away by the fact that an e-juice formulation has vegetable glycerin. Take it to the next level. Pay attention to how it was made. Pay attention to the exact type or kind of vegetable glycerin involved. Once you have a clear idea of this, then you would be in a better position to make a truly informed choice.
