PG vs VG for infusion

Discussion in 'Weed Edibles' started by bkarnaze, Jun 15, 2019.

  1. This video comes from Ardent Cannabis, maker of the Ardent Lift decarboxylator, my favorite MJ appliance.
    Bottom line: Vegetable Glycerin is terrible, Propylene Glycol is excellent.

    VG while a poor solvent is sweet on the tongue and when vaped, Makes good clouds.
    PG while a good solvent is harsh to smoke-vape and slightly bitter to the taste buds. Low clouds.

    PEG (Polyethylene Glycol) is the other solvent you'll find in many off the shelf Liquidizers sold for making vape juice from concentrates.
    Being the most common and usually a blend or two or more weights of PEG.

    PEG, VG and PG can be found online from places like
    Now they even sell preblended PEG 200-300-400.

    VG is a common skin softening agent and is found at nearly all CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreens usually in the cosmetic section.

    Most Juices meant to vape are a blend of the 2 or 3 to give better clouds the VG gives and the sweeter taste while softening the lung searing feel that pure PG can seem like.

    Pure PG is used and found in small carts with small ports to the coil. VG-PG blends being much thicker is used in a larger port cart or direct drip RDA type system.

    My best juices were Kief extracted into PEG-PG blend then added an equal amount of VG for smoothness.
