The Differences Between E-Liquids and Oils

Posted by David Nadel on

Smoking has come of a new age with the realization of the risks posed by the conventional methods of smoking herbs or tobacco. The new methods of smoking have come up with ways of illuminate the smoke through the creation of electronic vaporizers. These devices have fewer chemical compounds compared to those of a cigarette and also no other smoke. The vaporizer smells well, fruity at most, and is not noticeable at all. These vaporizers are cheaper than cigarettes and have helped people to get over cigarette addiction. The vaporizers come in two major types: the e-liquid and oil vaporizers and most people often wonder what the difference between the two is.

E-Liquid Vaporizers

E-liquid is a man-made juice that causes the vaporizer to generate vapor. Most of them are made from vegetable glycerin (VG) and Propylene Glycol (PG), nicotine, added flavoring and distilled water. PG is the organic compound that causes the appearance of vape smoke. VG forms the base compound for most E-liquids despite it being made from vegetable oils. Using PG alone would cause your throat to hurt and as VG is thicker it makes the inhale to be smoother. The smoker chooses the strength of nicotine they need to help them quit the nicotine addiction they have gradually over time. The vape pen used to heat the E-liquid contains a coil, cotton wick that is usually heated by the coil and the e-liquid chamber.

Oil Vaporizers

This type of vaporizer is used mainly to smoke hashish oil. This Hashish oil is made using medical marijuana concentrates. Most people who use marijuana whether for medicinal or recreation purposes have also joined the band wagon of the new smoking aspect presented by vaporizers to avoid too much dangerous smoke. The oil vaporizer heats the hashish oil in a similar fashion to the way e-liquid vaporizers heat e-liquids. However, these oil pens have a steel or metal plate that gets heated by the coil and when it gets red hot, it causes the oil to vaporize.

All the above points show the main differences between the e-liquid and oil vaporizers. They are both used in different types of vaporizers. These vaporizers have different heating elements.
