Our series of beginner’s guide’s aims to help those who are new to the world of vaping through the basics of what equipment is needed to get started. We’ll explore e-Liquids more closely, explaining how they are made and what they are made from and also look at how smoking traditional cigarettes compares to vaping.
An e-Liquid is the most common name for the liquid that is used in conjunction with e-Cigarettes. All e-Cigarettes use e-Liquids to create the vapour which is inhaled by the user. The vapour is created by e-Cigarette heating the liquid. Other names used to describe e-Liquid are e-Juice, Vape (derived from Vapour) and Smoke Juice.
As part of our beginners guide to vaping series we have tried to create a definitive list of common terminology.
Within this article I will endeavour to explain what exactly the Tobacco Products Directive is and also highlight the key points that effect e-Cigarettes and e-Liquids.

The web is packed full of guides and videos on how to make the biggest clouds but there is not a lot out there covering flavour. Most of what I’ve learnt about achieving the best flavours from e-liquids has been through trial and error, mainly error, so I thought I’d try and help out those flavour chasers just starting out with a few hints and tips.
Vaping can seem a bit overwhelming and complicated to the uninitiated but once you know the basics and the pitfalls to avoid, it’s actually really simple, enjoyable and you’ll almost certainly never want to go back to the cigarettes.
