Vegetable Glycerin is similar to that of Propylene Glycol. It is also used for cutting of e-juice. Some people prefer Vegetable Glycerin as it has some different properties.
VG is one of the key components in e-juice. But many of the vapers are not clear about its property. Here is a simple introduction about VG. Hope this can help.
1. What is VG?
VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin. It is a carbohydrate that is usually derived from plant-based oils and is used in consumer products like cosmetics and electronic cigarette liquids.
2. What is the physical property of VG?
Vegetable Glycerin is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid with an incredibly sweet taste and high viscosity.
3. What does VG do in e-juice?
VG produces more vapor than PG, but flavour is milder than PG, because it is thicker to blend well with flavour. For those who are allergic to PG, VG is an alternative.
4. Do VG and flavour together equal to e-juice?
No, they don’t. If you just mix VG and flavour and drop to cartridge or cartomizers, there will be no vapor. They could not be vaporized without e-juice.
5. Is VG safe?
VG sold by LightFire Vapor is USP food grade Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is organic. VG is naturally sweet, but since it is metabolized in a manner different from the way sugar is, it is not known to raise the blood sugar level in people. It has also been used in the processing and production of foods that are advertised as being low in carbohydrates and is not known to contribute to tooth decay.
6. What other functions does VG have?
It is used as an agent in cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items. Because it is soluble in both, water and alcohol, its versatility is a major benefactor in its purported growth and popularity within the manufacturing sector. It is invaluable as a natural source ingredient with emollient like properties which can soften and soothe the skin and it assists the outer epidermis in retaining moisture.
5.What VG does LightFire Vapor sell?
VG in our store is all sourced from one of the biggest pharmaceutical company in the USA. The VG has reached USP Kosher grade standard, which is edible.
But as the e-cig is a new product, so yet no data base of clinical trials and evidence has clearly shown the long term effects on the smoker.

I have ordered this a few times already and I have yet to be disappointed. If you plan on making your own ejuice then this is the product you need.

PG from here is awesome, however the VG interacts with cinnamon, causing a cloudy effect and separation into small white flakes. With other flavors it seems to mute flavors and also does separate faster than other VG brands I have used.
