How to Make DIY E-Juice: A Beginner's Guide

DIY Vape juice: a brief introduction

One of the few drawbacks of vaping is the cost of e-juice. If you use a sub-ohm setup, you can easily burn through 10 mL in a day. These costs can add up, particularly if you’re a fan of premium and more expensive e-liquid brands. And often your choices are limited. Maybe you want to vape on a non-existing profile, like pineapple tobacco or a watermelon custard juice. Or even worse, the vape shop is out of your preferred nicotine level and you leave empty-handed or with something you don’t really want.

Don’t worry, there’s a solution to all these problems: make your own e-liquid! If you already have your DIY supplies ready for making DIY e-juice, your next step will be to experiment with some tried-and-tested recipes. For everyone else, here’s an easy-to-follow guide on how to make high quality homemade DIY e-juice. We’ll cover what DIY supplies and ingredients you need, how to mix DIY e-juice, vape calculators, steeping, tips and tricks, and more.

While we don’t want to alarm anyone - as causes of vaper's tongue include dehydration, vitamin deficiency or illness, in most cases, the condition is temporary and soon resolves itself. There are a number of solutions for this common annoyance, so no need to panic!

Guelph university lab is turning cannabis cultivation into a science

“In the past when people said marijuana (or) cannabis, it’s just one thing came to mind - THC,” Zheng says, referring to the buzz-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol.

“But now that’s not the case because now there are over 200 ... varieties of cannabis, and each one has a different chemical profile,” he says adding there has been a profusion of new strains in recent years. Those chemical profiles centre mainly on two classes of compounds - cannabinoids and terpenes - that have different effects on users. “The cannabinoids part - and you’ve got so many different cannabinoids - include THC, which makes people high, and CBD (cannabidiol, which) is more medicinal,” Zheng explains.

The terpenes influence the taste and aroma of the product and may also play roles in such secondary recreational or medicinal effects as relaxation or focus, he says.

DIY Flavour Pairing Guide

Creativity and imagination is part of the fun of flavour pairing. Be adventurous and open to new flavours, go ahead and try unique combinations... You never know... You may just create the next big flavour trend!
