producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.
VG is classed as a carbohydrate for food purposes. VG is hypoallergenic, and is found in

My e-liquid has
slightly changed color since I ordered it. Is it still safe to use?
Yes, your e-liquid is still safe to use, even after a slight
color change. E-Liquids change color due to oxygenation, extreme temperature

the safety, vape-ability, or quality of your product.

Why does the e-liquid in my liter bottle order taste different from the bottles I’ve purchased in the past?
Liter E-Liquid purchases are made to order and may require 2-4 weeks steep time from your shipment date for best flavor, while standard sizes such as 18 ml and 30 ml are stocked in our Fulfillment Center and usually have just enough time to steep before shipping.
