Attention all vape enthusiasts: if you are on the hunt for vape juices, you will notice different ratios for “VG” and “PG” in the descriptions. For example, when looking at Ruthless e-juice, Grape Drank on Ice there is a ratio for 70VG/30PG:
So what does this ratio mean? What is PG and VG? First and foremost, PG stands for “propylene glycol” and VG stands for “vegetable glycerin”. PG and VG are liquid ingredients used in vape juice, which can be combined with differing levels of nicotine. These two ingredients are combined in various ways on e-juices to suit each vape user's preferences.
Now, VG on the other hand is different. Vegetable Glycerin is a natural substance that is taken from vegetable oil. Because of this it’s considered to be a natural chemical. VG is thicker in substance, which causes thick cloud production on the exhale. When e-juices are described as “smooth,” it is because of the VG that is present. The differences in VG compared to PG ultimately are:
If you vape long enough your preferences on the VG to PG ratio may shift.
Usually the beginners of vaping gravitate to e-liquids with a stronger amount of VG and less amount of PG. If you’ve never smoked tobacco cigarettes before either, a strong PG throat kick may be a bit harder to handle as well. However over time, vape enthusiasts say that users may eventually lean more towards e-liquids with more PG in them.
Would you be a fan of a smoother VG vape with thicker cloud production? Or would you be able to handle more of a PG vape with a sharp throat hit? It’s a tough decision to make for anyone new to the vape scene. But the first step can be fairly easy: explore your options. Dig into an e-juice collection and start your search for the perfect vape today. Check out descriptions, read reviews, and decide for yourself which vape juice is best for you.

Thanks for the read man! I prefer higher VG as well in my sub-ohm. But, at Ruthless we like to play around with different PG ratios and I don’t mind a 60 PG / 40 VG ratio for some flavor profiles like Tropic Thunda!
Feel free to read our other articles and browse around!!

Excellent Information . . . thank you! VG > PG for me personally since I’ve only been researching the effects of vaping for the past several weeks. I really appreciate the information.

Hello Shawna, thanks for the read!
Tropic Thunda is one of our newest flavor out currently. The e-juice is 60 VG / 40 PG with a flavor profile of Guava and Berries. The juice is incredibly smooth because of the Guava but the Berry gives it a nice punch of flavor that you’re looking for. Can’t go wrong with it! (Highly recommended based on your preference)
Strizzy is another new flavor with a 70 VG / 30 PG ratio. The flavor profile is raspberry, kiwi, and strawberry which has more of a delicate touch to it but is mostly known for its blend rather than strong primary notes. However, raspberry is defintiely prominent in this one and comes out well in this juice!
If you’re looking for more oomph in flavor, Swamp thang and Grape Drank definitely fall into that category!
Keep a look out for new flavors by following us on our social media pages! You can find the flavors mentioned above on this page:
You can also look at our Vaper’s cheat sheet guide in our mouth to lung vape article for more information on getting better flavor!
Let me know if this helps Shawna!

I am new to vaping, I have been smoking for about 15 years now and this helped me tremendously to understand what it is that I bought. However some of the juices I purchased from my local vape shop do not have a ratio printed on the bottle. Thank you much for helping people like me stay informed.
