PG Giving me headaches?
Hey all, I'm quite new to the forums but have been in the vaping scene for quite a while. I've noticed over the growth of the vaping community that Some juices were giving me bad headaches. At first i thought this was caused because of my extreme pickyness for flavors. I came to find out that juices with a lot of PG were the cause of this. What are your inputs on this subject? Can you educate me on it? I'm very curious and open to knowledge! Thanks guys -Jake

Some people are not tolerant of PG. A few are even allergic.

I find that headaches for me are usually the result of too much nicotine though.

If you use high VG liquid (as I do) you do need more flavouring. I usually mix at 65% to 80%VG. But I'm not sensitive to PG. If you buy juice with extra flavour shots then you can dilute it with VG and see if that helps. If you vape at 12mg then get some 24mg juice with extra flavour shots then dilute to 12mg with an equal amount of vegetable glycerine.

Welcome to TVF buddy! since you're in the states, there are a lot more companies who will tailor juice to your requirements.

Off the top of my head I know Mt Baker Vapor do great juice and you have full control over the PG/VG ratio Good

Howdy and welcome aboard.     

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

Essex is another great producer with low PG.  My current vape, Blue Eyes by Essex, is 90/10.
