E-Juice


What does it mean to be AEMSA approved?
AEMSA stands for the American E-liquid Manufacturing Standards Association. AEMSA is the first and only Manufacturers’ trade association completely dedicated to creating responsible and sustainable standards for the safe manufacturing of “e-liquids” used in electronic cigarettes. AEMSA is an all-volunteer organization, formed by American manufacturers of e-liquids, to promote safety and responsibility through self-regulation.

One of AEMSA’s primary goals is to provide consumers with higher degrees of confidence our members’ products are manufactured with professionalism, accuracy and safety.

We are proud that all of our Gypsy House Juice is AEMSA approved!

How long does e-juice last?
Generally speaking, a bottle of 15 ml e liquid will last the equivalent of roughly 15 packs of cigarettes. This is at the rate of using 3-4 drops of e-juice to yield about 15 puffs, which is about the average among smokers.

Heavier vapers tend to take longer and deeper puffs.  So, typically people who vape higher strengths of nicotine tend to expend e-juice faster.  This isn’t always the case, some vapers will replace the e-juice in their devices more frequently than others due to personal preferences, tastes and vaping style. In this case, a 15ml bottle of e-juice will not last the full 300 cigarette estimate, and could be closer to 200, or 10 packs. It’s also important that you change out the tank coil or cartomizer as it ages as well; this will guarantee that a 15ml bottle of e-juice lasts as long as it should.

When the poly-batting inside the wick gets old and used, it can become compacted. This prevents the e-juice from becoming fully absorbed and so some of it gets wasted. This is the main reason that a 15 ml bottle of e-juice wouldn’t last as long as it should.



What is VG and PG?

What is Propylene Glycol?

Propylene Glycol is a carrier fluid used to hold the nicotine and flavor in your e-liquid. It is tasteless, odorless, and found in everyday products such as food, medical vaccines, cosmetics, medicine, hand lotions, shampoos, theater fog and cleaning supplies. PG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.


What is Vegetable Glycerin?

Vegetable Glycerin is a carrier fluid used to hold the nicotine and flavor in your e-liquid. It is odorless and commonly used in the food and cosmetic industry. Vegetable Glycerin is an organic compound produced from vegetable oil. VG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.

VG is classed as a carbohydrate by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for food purposes. VG is hyper allergenic, and is found in allergenic soaps, cosmetics and other products. VG naturally has a sweet taste, and though it is a carbohydrate, it does not have a drastic effect on blood sugar, and can be safely used by those who require insulin.


What is the difference between PG & VG?

Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin are both carrier fluids that hold the nicotine and flavor in your eJuice, and are both odorless and tasteless. PG is thinner than VG, and is more easily vaporized by the atomizer and cartomizer.

PG produces a stronger “throat hit”, and more effectively carries the flavor during vaping. VG is a more viscous liquid, and has a slightly sweet taste; it is used in foods for this purpose. In addition, it produces more vapor than PG.


What blend do you use in your E-Liquid?

We use a 65/35 blend PG/VG in our Gypsy House Line.
