Approved FDA Ejuice Vendors in the USA

Approved FDA Ejuice Vendors in the USA

FDA Approved Ejuice and FDA Approved Eliquid Vendors/ Manufacturers List by State

With the changing laws and regulations in the Ejuice industry, there is a lot of uncertainty out there. We wanted to create a list for the last remaining vape shop owners to find Ejuice companies that have been approved by the FDA. There are still many companies that will remain in this industry and we want to make sure they are all in one location and on one easy to navigate list.
Also, there are many regulations with the Alcohol and Tobacco Commission or “ATC” that will need to be approved before manufactures can move forward in getting approved by the FDA.

Propylene Glycol (PG) Vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

Propylene Glycol (PG) Vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

Propylene Glycol (PG)

Pros and Cons of Propylene Glycol (PG)

Propylene Glycol (PG) Pros:

Better Flavor Retention
More Throat Hit

I will not get into the chemistry here, but the nature of propylene glycol compared to vegetable glycerin is that of one which binds to the flavor more easily. This allows you to get better flavor and a longer shelf life of flavor with higher PG blends than with VG dominant juices.

The throat hit could be a pro or con, depending on the person you talk to. The throat hit also largely depends on the wattage/ voltage your vape pen has combined with the strength of nicotine (the higher the mg of nicotine, the higher the throat hit). Generally though PG dominant blends give you more throat hit than VG dominant blends.

If you have a 50/50 blend of VG and PG, that should still be relatively smooth hit, without the throat hit because the VG mellows the mixture out. If you have a mixture of 60/ 40 PG/VG then you should start to get a decent throat hit due to the PG. Anything lower than that will typically be smoother.

Propylene Glycol (PG) Cons:

Less Vapor Production
Less Thick Vapor (dissipates quickly)
More Throat Hit

If you have juice with more PG than VG you will notice that, one the juice is thinner, more like a consistency of water, but two, you will notice that the vapor production from your vape pen is much thinner. You may also notice that it has less vapor production and dissipates more quickly. This is a big con to some, as they like big clouds of vapor, but to others, it may not be such a big deal.

Some people are also sensitive to PG, more so than VG and thus may have itchy, irritated, or harsh throat hits from PG. If this is the case, many opt for 100% VG blends in thier vape pen starter kits.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

Pros and Cons of Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

Vegetable Glycerin (VG) Pros

Thicker, more dense clouds of vapor
Less Throat Hit

You may notice that VG is very thick, almost like the consistency of oil. This is also the case with the vapor it produces. It gives a much thicker and fuller cloud than the PG blends give. Some people like to have their juice with 100% VG or with a higher percentage of VG because the vapor production is so good, so choose a great begginner starter kit with good E Juice. These people love experiencing the large clouds of vapor when vaping. This is one of the biggest benefits of VG to some people. VG also gives less throat hit, or a smoother vaping experience.

Some users do not like the throat hit, and some do, so this is a pro and con of both types of juice, it just depends on your perspective and your personal opinion.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG) Cons

Less Flavor
Less Throat Hit

One of the biggest drawbacks to VG is that it has les flavor. This is just part of the nature of the chemical structure of VG as it does not bind to the flavoring like PG does. Juice with more VG can actually lose its flavor quicker than a higher PG blend. Sometimes it helps to add extra flavor to the VG juice blends so it can make up for the lack of flavor.

Vape Pen E Liquid

Vape Pen E Liquid

Vape Pen E Juice

What is Vape Pen E Liquid or E Juice or E Oil?

About ten years ago, a huge innovation was made in the nicotine industry, and the world has not been the same since. The e cigarette was introduced, which allowed smokers to get their nicotine fix by inhaling water vapor instead of smoke, thus preventing them from having to smell like cigarette smoke and allowing them to “vape” anywhere they happened to be. Since then, e cigarettes, or vaporizers, have continued to develop and grow, and have become exponentially more popular with every passing year. You can still get an old-fashioned e cigarette model, which looks like a cigarette, is held between the first two fingers of your hand, and has a little LED light on the end that lights up when you inhale, but increasingly people are opting for the vape pen model, which looks nothing like a cigarette at all and is becoming a fashion statement all of its own.

W Liquid is made up of water, flavor, nicotine, and propylene glycol

Vape pens use e liquid, which is a mixture of water, flavor, nicotine extract, and some sort of substance such as propylene glycol that allows the liquid to vaporize when it comes into contact with the hot atomizer coil. The delicious flavors that are available for vape pens are one of the main attractions of vaping, as you can get tastes such as vanilla, coffee, blueberry, cinnamon, and even pumpkin spice e liquid for your vape pen, or basically any other flavor your heart desires. With vape pen e liquid, you do not need to worry about bothering the people around you with your choice of flavor either, as the scent is very light and dissipates extremely quickly. Someone sitting right next to you will probably not even be able to smell your vape pen e liquid, giving you the freedom to enjoy your vaporizer wherever you are, no matter the company you are with.

Customize your Vape pen E Liquid however you see fit!

Vape pen e liquid also comes with a variety of concentrations of nicotine, which allows you to customize your vaping experience whether you are a two pack a day smoker who can’t function without your nicotine, or a nonsmoker who would feel dizzy from one puff of a regular cigarette. It is easy to see why so many people are turning to vape pen e liquid!
