Drip Hacks™ Vegetable Glycerine is sourced from reliable manufacturers in the highest purity available, perfectly suited to all vaping applications. The essential ingredient in all e liquids, vegetable glycerine is responsible for producing the vapour that carries Nicotine during inhalation. Vg and Pg can be mixed together to create what’s called “base mix” in the vaping world – and this can cut down on mixing time and improve efficiency.
What is Vegetable Glycerine?
Vegetable Glycerine is a clear, viscous and odourless compound with a mild sweet taste having a wide array of applications in many industries, the latest of which is E Liquid. Vegetable Glycerine is most often referred to in the vaping industry as “VG” but it may also be called “Glycerin”, “Glycerine” and Glycerol.
Where does Vegetable Glycerine come from?
As the name might suggest, VG is derived from plant and sometimes animal sources where it occurs in triglycerides. The production of VG comprises 2 stages: hydolysis (used to break chemical bonds) and saponification (conversion of esters into soaps and alcohols). Drip Hacks Vegetable Glycerine is derived from Rapeseed and is 99.5% pure as a minimum.
How do I use it to make my own E Liquid?
Vegetable Glycerine is used as the backbone of E Liquid and comprises the majority of the liquid (usually 50% of more). Mixing E Liquid is simple and with the help of a Hackshot it can be done in 4 simple steps. Always remember to calculate your mixing ratios correctly to ensure your final values for Nicotine, flavour percentage and Vg and Pg ratio are correct. We recommend the use of a good E liquid calculator like Steam Engine to help you do this easily.
