With so many e-liquid flavours on the market, it’s easy for first-time vapers to feel overwhelmed. But, if your aim is to get off the cigarettes and become a full-time vaper, there are actually some e-liquid flavours which will help you in that process.
Variety is said to be the spice of life and a study has shown that over a third of vapers surveyed would not have made the transition to vaping if there weren’t so many flavours to choose from.
Many people who vape are actually smokers who dabble in using both e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes alongside each other until they decide to take the plunge and turn to vaping exclusively.
Because of this, if you’re a smoker, there are some tactical moves you can make to ensure that your transition from smoking to vaping is as easy and effective as possible.
Consider the flavours which you already smoke
If you’re a smoker, you probably have a favourite brand of cigarette which has its own specific flavours. Be mindful of the flavours featured in your chosen brand of cigarettes and try to find e-liquids which match that taste.
Similarly, if you love menthol cigarettes, you can get your hands on a variety of different menthol flavours which will replicate your favourite cigarette taste. This can really help to smooth the transition from smoking to vaping and you can find some really tasty menthol e-liquids in our collection at Cloudz Vapour.
Don’t be afraid to mix in tobacco flavours
Turning to vaping from smoking can be an exciting time and not just because of the plethora of health benefits; the vast amount of e-liquid flavours available to vapers is immense and it can be really enjoyable to try the ones that take your fancy.
You may feel excited about all the flavours on the market but are not quite satiated without the taste of tobacco. If you can relate to this, don’t be afraid to mix a small amount of tobacco flavoured e-liquid into other flavours so that, although you’re trying the flavours available, you’re still getting your tobacco fix.
It is worth noting, though, that when you smoke traditional cigarettes, you’re not just tasting the flavour of the tobacco. Tobacco makes up a large portion of the flavour, but you’ll also be tasting the combustion of the paper and the many chemicals which make up a cigarette.
You won’t find an e-liquid which will replicate the exact flavour of smoking a cigarette and many new vapers struggle with this, but tobacco flavours certainly are a great place to start.
PG and VG
Different e-liquid flavours have varying levels of PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerine) and, although you should be able to find your preferred flavour with the right PG/VG ratios for you, you should always be mindful of what that ratio is.
If you’re a smoker who’s just making the transition to vaping, an e-liquid with a higher ratio of PG is recommended for you because it will provide you with a stronger hit in your throat which replicates the sensation of smoking.
This is generally the preference for those who have recently turned to vaping to quit or reduce smoking but, if you want a smoother sensation when you vape, opt for an e-liquid flavour which features a higher VG ratio. For more on the differences between PG and VG, check out this post.
