I don’t know how many of you people reading this are concerned with your health but it’s time for a wake up call.


But, I’m not going to give you life advice so no need to press the back button just yet.

We all know the health and wellness industry is already relatively unregulated, which means it’s important we’re all aware of what we’re putting in our bodies.

When it comes to vaping, and the chemicals and compounds that go into producing your substances, it’s important to understand that NOT ALL JUICE IS MADE EQUAL.

You must be cautious, and know what you’re looking for. For starters I would try and stay away from cheap e juice. Usually it’s cheap because it doesn’t have the same quality ingredients as other juices have. Hence why it’s cheaper…

Below we’ve listed 17 reasons why you should consider avoiding cheap e juice:


Chronic Dry Mouth

Cheaper liquids generally have high PG content, PG is a humectant, which can cause chronic dry mouth and throat


Asthma Aerosol

PG is the chemical used in asthma inhaler aerosols, and no one wants to be vaping a ton of that all day


Throat Irritation

High PG content can cause throat irritation that can last from days to weeks


Lower Temperature

High PG content means you can’t vape at high temperatures without burning your liquid


High PG in Nicotine Base

The base nicotine in the mixture typically contains high levels of PG


Low Quality Ingredients

The flavors in your juice aren’t as good since they’re using lower quality ingredients


Low Vapor Production

Low VG content which means you won’t produce as much vapor


Contain Low-Grade Oils

May Contain low grade oil-based flavorings



May Contain Diacetyl


Acetyl Propionyl

May contain Acetyl propionyl



May contain Acetoin


Too Watery

May contain too much water making it too runny and clogging your vape up



PG can cause an allergic reaction to some of the population


Develop an Allergy

Like any chemical that isn't naturally occuring, over exposure to PG can lead to the development of an allergy


Bad For Pets

House animals, especially cats, are extremely sensitive to PG


Companies Lie

The company might not be telling you the truth about the ingredients


Container Absorption

Might come in plastic bottles which tend to absorb your liquid


Some people may dispute the effects and consequences of using juices that contain a large portion of PG, but the fact is that it just isn’t as organic as VG. It's a man made substance, and when consumed in large volumes over long periods of time it can be slightly hazardous. We aren’t saying to necessarily go completely PG free, however a lot of people do just for organic reasons. It’s okay to usually have around 20-40% PG content; this helps preserve the liquid for longer periods of time, as well as adds some more flavor to the mixture.

We’re not telling you to go out and spend a fortune on e juice! There is definitely plenty of options when it comes to juice, but we just want to make sure you’re all aware of some of the consequences of buying cheap e juice. Please be careful going forward, and happy vaping!
