You can read a more in depth article on the vape juice variations here.

VG – Vegetable Glycerin
PG – Propylene Glycol
DTL – Direct to Lung
MTL – Mouth to Lung


Base VG/PG Ratios

If you are PG sensitive, choose Max VG. You will need higher powered DTL equipment for this.

How we solve the problem for our PG allergic vapers

For greater clouds and flavour – 70/30 to Max VG on DTL devices.

For less vapour, more discreet vaping – 50/50 to 60/40 on MTL device.

For a greater throat hit choose 50/50 to 60/40 VG/PG ratio.




Note: If the nicotine description does not specify nicotine salts it contains freebase nicotine (if the nic content is greater than 0 of course). Freebase nicotine is the type of nicotine used in most e-liquids. More info on nic salts vs freebase nicotine

Smoking cessation on DTL devices – Freebase nicotine, start with 9mg to 18mg depending on how heavy a smoker you were.

Smoking cessation on MTL devices – Nic Salts 20mg to 35mg

Lower throat hit – Nic Salts on MTL device. Nic Salts AT LOWER levels (1 to 9 mg) on DTL equipment.


Higher throat hit – Freebase nicotine on DTL or MTL devices

Weaning yourself off nicotine – drop your nic level slightly every month.


Menthol Strength


Chilled range flavouring is available in standard, strong and very strong menthol versions.

90% of our customers use the standard option, so we suggest you start there unless you are a keen menthol fan.


Packaging for your final Mix


Our standard packaging is in a HDPE squeeze bottle with a spout that is small enough to fit into most fill holes to ensure quick, easy and mess-free refilling of tanks, pods etc.

There is an option for an additional Chubby Gorilla bottle with child proof cap to do your final mix in, if you prefer it.

Note: The spout on a Chubby Gorilla bottle is very thin, for higher VG (80% to Max) we recommend the standard HDPE bottle)

These are general guidelines without knowing your personal situation. Please do not hesitate to email or phone us (during office hours) to discuss your particular situation if you are uncertain, we are happy to help.
