How to make vape juice the easy way
It can be fun or stressful to mix up your e-juice, depending on how much experience you have. If it’s your first time, or you’ve tried but failed before, this basic, step-by-step ABCD guide on how to make vape juice will serve as a reference to help you navigate the DIY e-liquid environment, make it fun, and maybe even save you some dollars in the process. You need to ensure you have the correct mixing of ingredients and equipment. Although the chemistry involved is simple and includes nothing being blown up, you do need to exercise proper protection.
Select a recipe you feel comfortable about combining with. You might want to start with something that has just a few flavors, depending on your skill level. Or you can do the blending. It is important to make sure the amount of all your flavors does not exceed 20 percent of the volume of your bottles. Too much flavoring may either silence the flavor or offer a taste similar to a perfume. Be patient, finding the sweet spot may require a few whacks.
Below are the simplest steps to make vape juice
- Find a DIY vape shop online or closest to you.
- Get some VG and PG (or get a pre-made base bottle); get at least 100 mL of each (which would be just over a few dollars).
- Add a couple of 50 mL plastic bottles and a few plastic pipettes to your cart.
- Look at the flavorings of the DIY vape juice, and choose those that appeal to you.
- Use the pipettes to drop about 10-20 drops of flavoring into one of your empty bottles when you get your box.
- Fill your bottle with PG and the rest with VG right up to the centre.
- Shake and set aside to let the bubbles settle for a few hours.
- Try the juice of the vape, and change to taste.
In your juice, the PG-to-VG ratio dramatically affects how it vapes. Not necessarily the flavor but the pull quality and the amount of visible cloud growth. The ratio itself denotes what percentage PG and VG occupy of the total volume of the container. A juice mixed with half PG and half VG, for example, is labeled 50/50. This blend does not emphasize the potential for flavor or cloud. 30 percent PG to 70 percent VG produces a thicker juice that creates thicker clouds, while 70 percent PG to 30 percent VG produces a thinner juice that brings out its prominence with limited cloud production. For higher-powered models, we suggest a 30 percent PG-70 percent VG ratio and a 50/50 for lower-wattage pen-style e-cigarettes.
If you’d rather get all your DIY supplies in a box, there are plenty of kits to choose from out there. Many DIY kits for beginners come with all the basics you need to get started. The vast majority of DIY kits are packaged by volume for mixing and will contain a range of syringes along with the necessary ingredients of e-liquids. Purchase a starter kit and a scale if you’re undecided between the weight and length. This way you can try to decide what’s best for you. If you have already agreed to combine by weight, it wouldn’t hurt to buy a DIY starter kit. Chances are that all the components used in the kit will end up being used in due time.
