If you’re looking for cheap, low-quality e-liquid, you won’t find any at Smaxeliquid.com. We are a company focused on providing our customers with the best quality premium juice on the market. We believe every vaper deserves a high-end product, so that’s all we vape and sell. But what makes one vape liquid different from another? Ingredients – it’s all about the ingredients.
Why are Premium Juices so Important?
When vaping, you’re inhaling the ingredients combined to create the e-juice. From the lungs, the ingredients are dispersed throughout the body, so it’s all about what’s inside.
PG is rated based on purity. The best hover around 99-percent. We have found some distributors claiming 100-percent purity, but that’s impossible. No ingredients are 100-percent pure, so making that claim detracts from trustworthiness.
VG is rated on purity, as well. You can expect high-end juice to use VG with a purity level of 99.5-percent or higher. Remember, just because a product says 100-percent vegetable glycerin, doesn’t mean it’s 100-percent pure.
The purity of nicotine used in e liquids should be no less than 99-percent. Anything less and your juice may take on a sharp, peppery taste that overpowers the flavor.
Flavors in vape juices should be marked food-grade. If testing has proven the ingredient is safe to eat, you can gather it’s safe to vape.
We can’t stress enough that the e-liquid you choose is absorbed by your body. We live by the motto, “Be true to yourself.” That means Smax only provides true premium juice.
What’s Taste Got to Do With It?
Taste is the ultimate measure, from a vaper’s perspective, of quality. There are four components of e juice: nicotine, propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and flavoring. Each plays a critical role in quality and perception of what “premium” means.
Nicotine – Did you know you can find nicotine in plants aside from tobacco? This alkaloid is present in several plants called nightshades. To be more specific, nightshade foods contain nicotine. Nightshade foods include:
Nicotine can be extracted from these foods, but each contains only a tiny fraction of the nicotine content in tobacco leaves, so they are rarely used, but tobacco-free nicotine is growing in popularity. Because this alternative is not commonly used, there’s no research into the effects of food-based nicotine levels on premium juice taste. But, that’s not the case with tobacco-based nicotine.
Nicotine has a taste, so don’t let any shop owner tell you a 0-percent nicotine e juice has the same flavor as the 5-percent version. Many describe the taste as peppery; almost like black pepper. Premium products take the effect of this chemical on taste and adjust flavors accordingly, so your Pony on Acid tastes like berries and strawberry glaze, not pepper.
PG is the part of e juice that a vaper feels at the back of the throat. This is often called the throat hit, but it plays another part many vapers don’t know about. The connection between PG and taste is based on science. PG is added to foods, and e liquids, to distribute the flavor evenly. High-quality PG will undoubtedly be more effective than a subpar variety.
Along with taste, PG can strongly affect the experience. If the throat hit of your e-liquid is too strong (higher PG content) the hit turns into a burn that can be painful to some and a burning throat isn’t a premium experience.
VG is often used as an alternative to certain sweeteners in foods. The higher the VG content; the sweeter the flavor. The same goes for e juice. At Smax, we average a ratio of 90/10: 90-percent VG to 10-percent PG. This will vary slightly based on nicotine level and flavor to reach the perfect combination. To create the best e juice, a company can’t stick with a single recipe for all flavors and nicotine levels, because each ingredient affects taste: so we don’t.
The flavor used in high-end juice is the epicenter of your experience. Food flavors are used in e liquids, so they are 100-percent safe for human consumption. You can buy a pair of earphones from a dollar store and an electronics store. Just because both are earphones doesn’t mean they are of equal quality. The same goes for vape juice flavoring.
At Smax, premium juice is all we sell, because there’s no other option. Our customers have grown to expect fantastic flavor, big plumes, and a satisfying throat hit, so that’s what we provide in every bottle every day.
