If you have been vaping for a long time now, then you probably know how to pick out e-juices when it’s time for you to restock your supply. But if you just started vaping—or if you’ve simply failed to branch out and experiment with new e-juices since you first started vaping—then you should take the time to learn how to pick out the e-juices that are right for you.
At the moment, there are literally thousands of e-juice options available to you. Companies are constantly trying to outdo themselves and come up with new e-juice flavors. And while the number of e-juices that are out there will likely plateau and then decrease in the coming months and years due to the FDA’s new vaping regulations, you still have plenty of choices right now. It’s up to you to pick out the e-juices that work best for your personal preferences.
How do you do it? Well, at first, it can be a little bit intimidating! With so many options, how are you supposed to narrow it down and pick just a few e-juices to vape with?
Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to pick out a handful of e-juices to start with. All you need to do is keep a few key factors in mind, and before long, you will be well on your way to building up your e-juice collection. And over time, you will try new flavors to get the experience of using them and pick out your favorites that you go back to time and time again.

If you have never vaped before, then you probably don’t have any idea about which e-juice brands are trustworthy and, more importantly, which aren’t. It’s important to learn about this quickly, though, because the last thing you want to do is spend your hard-earned money on an e-juice manufactured by a company that doesn’t do the proper research and testing on their e-juices and doesn’t create quality vaping products.
Here at Aspen Valley Vapes, we carry e-juices from a number of the top names in the vaping industry. The list of brands that we carry includes Mod Milk, Sodalicious, Joost Vapor, Bake Sale, and so many more. We are constantly adding to our inventory, but before we do, we make sure to check out the brands that we sell to ensure that you’re getting the best e-juices possible.
Even still, it’s important for you to do your own research and find the brands that you like the most. Some of that involves trial and error, but you can also spend time reading up on brands to find out what they’re all about. By choosing the right brands, you can enhance your vaping experience and find e-juices that you love.
Do you absolutely hate the taste of chocolate? We know, we know. Who hates chocolate? But believe us, there are some people out there who simply don’t like it.
If that’s the case, then you obviously aren’t going to enjoy vape flavors that were created for chocolate lovers. Similarly, if you aren’t real big on sweets, you probably want to steer clear of anything that was designed to taste like cotton candy or birthday cake.
The great thing about e-juices is that there is one for just about any flavor you can think of, so if there’s something you love to eat, you should start off by trying an e-juice created to taste like that food item. In some cases, people even choose to replace food they love with an e-juice. Taking this approach will allow you to, say, satisfy your sweet tooth without packing on the pounds that would come along with doing it with food.
If you try a flavor and you don’t like it even though you thought you would, don’t get discouraged! The great thing about e-juices is that there are so many that you’re bound to find a bunch that you do love.
3. Nicotine Level
One of the most confusing parts of picking out an e-juice is picking out a corresponding nicotine level. Even if you’ve spent years smoking, chances are you have no idea how much nicotine you’ve been putting into your body and how much your body needs and/or can handle.
If you’ve never smoked before and you are vaping for the first time, choosing an e-juice without any nicotine in it is your best bet. However, if you have used nicotine in the past, you should check out our handy guide to nicotine levels and e-juices. It will help you select the ideal strength of your e-juice without much effort.
Regardless of which level you settle on, you can always increase or decrease your nicotine level the next time you purchase an e-juice. Just try and get a sense of which level works best for you.
4. PG or VG?
Most e-juices that are on the market today feature either PG (propylene glycol) or VG (vegetable glycerin) as a base. When choosing an e-juice, you should keep a close eye on the percentages of either PG or VG in your selection.
E-juices that contain PG are usually capable of delivering a stronger throat hit than those with VG. A throat hit, if you’re not familiar with the term, is the feeling that you get on the back of your throat when you take a drag from an e-cigarette. E-juices that contain VG, on the other hand, are usually capable of providing people with larger vaper clouds.

Doesn’t it always come down to price? You want to get a great experience with something, but you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for it.
When it comes to vaping, it’s actually a really bad idea to skimp too much. You could end up purchasing vaping products that are no good or, in a worst-case scenario, dangerous for you.
