In this day and age, more people than ever are vaping. Vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes, so it has been used to quit smoking for some time. Though vaping started as a way for people to quit smoking, it quickly became more than that. People took up vaping as a hobby, as they enjoyed the taste of the vape and smoking relaxation. As the world of vaping has started to progress, there has also been an introduction of CBD and THC consumption and these days, many people have turned to vaping cbd oil to relax.
As the world has become more obsessed with vaping, more and more people are turning to make their own E-liquids.
What is an E-Liquid?
E-liquids are what are used in vapes. This is what you inhale when you use a vaping tool. You may be wondering how this happens. You put the E-liquid into the vaping pen and then the battery within the pen heats the liquid, which turns the liquid into a smooth vapour that the user then inhales.
For those using vaping to quit smoking, this e-liquid has a small amount of nicotine in it, which is what people use to keep their nicotine addiction under control. The E-Liquids also give the vape liquids their taste, though you can get liquids that have no fragrance.
Buying your own vape juice can be quite pricey, and sometimes, the available flavours do not necessarily appeal to the mass market. For this reason, many people have decided to take up making their own vape liquids. Making your own e-liquids is actually extremely straightforward, and essentially anyone can do it. As long as you follow the correct instructions and use the right products, you should be just fine. Here is how to make your own E-liquids.
The Ingredients that you need
You may be surprised to know that you actually only need straightforward ingredients to make E-liquids, which are extremely easy to get your hands on. If you want to make a basic E-liquid recipe, you will need a base liquid of PG and VG, flavouring and then nicotine, but of course, the nicotine is optional. It’s really that simple, but you have to make sure that you are getting the measurements right.
How to make your own vape juice
The first thing you will need to do when making your own vape liquid is to make yourself a base. You will need to get yourself some PG and some VG, and you will need at least 400ml of each of these liquids. If you do not feel comfortable making your own base, you will be glad to know that you can actually get a base that has already been premade. These premade bases are straightforward to find, and you can get them from any vape store, in person or online. We recommend that you stock up on your base ingredients, as it can take a few tries to make a liquid that has a taste that you like and enjoy. It is a case of trial and error, and you don’t have extra liquid to fall back on, you may find yourself stuck in a situation where you have to endure some horrible tasting e-liquids, so it makes sense to have some backup liquids so you can cook up another batch if need be.
As well as buying the base ingredients, it would help if you also bought some small 50ml plastic bottles and plastic pipettes so that you have all of the tools to be able to make several bottles of liquid. We also recommend that when you first get some flavour concentrations for your e-liquid, you should make sure that you have several flavour concentrations to choose from, as this means that you can get to know which flavours you enjoy and what works for you. The more that you have, the more flavour combinations you can make, which means that you can increase the number of possible flavour combinations that you can have.
The Mixing Process
The mixing process of making your e-liquids is actually extremely straightforward. You need to first put a few droplets of your flavour concentrate into the small plastic bottles that you bought. We recommend using no more than twenty drops as then your mixture may become far too concentrated. You then need to fill the rest of the bottle with the base mixture you have, so if you have bought a premade base, you need to pour that into the bottle until it is filled to the top.
Once you have everything measured out and filled, you then need to mix the mixture thoroughly. Once mixed, give the bottle a good shake and then leave it to rest in a room temperature room. It would help if you left the mixture until the bubbles in the mixture have settled. Once this is done, you can then give your e-liquid a try and see if it is what you like.
If you aren’t happy with the taste of your e-liquid, then you can always add more flavour concentrate, but don’t be afraid to start again.
