A Deeper Understanding of E-liquids
E-liquid is a flavored fluid substance used in electronic cigarettes. It is indeed the vapor emanating from an electronic cigarette that resembles smoke from the commonly known traditional cigarettes. An electronic cigarette is a vaporizing machine that is powered by a battery and resembles a traditional cigarette. The use of an electronic cigarette is known as ‘vaping’.
E-liquids are produced in different flavors according to the wishes of the manufacturing company. Base ingredients used in the manufacture of e-liquids create a smooth flavor. The base ingredients used in the manufacture of e-liquids consist of Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG) or both.
In the food industry, propylene Glycol is used to generate different colors and flavors to different foods. It is also used in the medical field where it acts as a flavored additive to medicines that contain bitter tastes. Vegetable Glycerin on the other hand is derived from known vegetable types and comes in sweet tastes.
Vegetable Glycerin cannot be used alone in an electronic cigarette since it would pose difficulties in smoking due to its thick nature. This has necessitated many companies in the business of manufacturing e-liquids to blend both Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin in equal proportions. Researchers have found out that there are no toxins in both Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin.
Regular e-liquids are another type of e-liquids that are different form Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin. They are e-liquids that are cheaper than the discussed Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin generated e-liquids. Regular e-liquids can harm the human bodies since they contain harmful chemicals hence they are not recommended for use. Acetoin and Diacetyl are examples of these harmful chemicals contained in regular e-liquids.
Cosmic Fog Vapor is one company that is re-known for manufacturing a brand of e-liquids called Cosmic Fog e-liquid. The experience of the company in the culinary world allows it to generate Cosmic Fog e-liquids in different flavors. These Cosmic Fog vapors or e-liquids are of different types which are: Sonrise, Euphoria, Sonset and Kryptonite.
There are several advantages of using e-liquids in electronic cigarettes. The first advantage is that it helps end addiction to traditional smoking of cigarettes. Experts claim that electronic cigarettes help in stress management due to their use in recreation.
There are several disadvantages of using e-liquids in electronic cigarettes.

It is however good to note that research on these advantages and disadvantages of electronic cigarettes has been inconclusive.
