Liquid Barn FAQ
What is an eCigarette?
Electronic cigarettes (also known as eCigarettes or personal vaporizers) are devices that heat up eLiquid, enough to turn the liquid into vapor for inhalation. Unlike traditional cigarettes which burn tobacco and create smoke, eCigarettes do not burn anything. There is no smoke, only a fog-like mist or vapor.
What is eLiquid?
eLiquid is the liquid which is vaporized in eCigarettes. It is a solution made up of propylene glycol (PG) and/or vegetable glycerin (VG), flavoring, and optional nicotine. When the solution is heated, it vaporizes and translates the flavor and other ingredients into the vaper's mouth. The sensation is similar to smoking, but without the same molecules. Click here for more information on the characteristics of PG and VG.
CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 Warning: Nicotine products contain a chemical known to the state of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Do not use if you are pregnant, and/ or breastfeeding.
How much nicotine is in eLiquid?
Liquid Barn provides premixed eLiquid at 4 different levels of nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, and 12mg. The nicotine levels should be stated on any bottle of eLiquid you purchase. When ordering online, you will choose your preferred level of nicotine. Click here for help understanding nicotine strengths.
How much flavoring should I add?
Although taste is subjective, we do have a suggested starting percentage for each of our flavors. You can find the suggested amount on your bottle or visit our Suggested Flavor Percentages Chart for the full list.
Will adding flavor dilute the amount of nicotine in my eLiquid?
Although adding anything to your eLiquid will dilute its contents, the amount of flavor typically used will not effect your eLiquid in a significant way. To see how much your eLiquid will be diluted, check out our eLiquid dilution chart.
What is the difference between eLiquid and a nicotine solution?
eLiquids available on our site are premixed and ready to vape. You can get your eLiquid with or with out nicotine. Basic eLiquid is available in the traditional strengths of 3mg, 6mg or 12mg.
Nicotine solutions are a concentrated nicotine mixture, not meant for direct vaping. Nicotine solutions are intended for DIYers making their own eLiquid with nicotine.
What do I need to DIY?
All you need is a bottle of our Basic eLiquid™ and a flavor of your choice. We also sell the individual components of eLiquid for those who want to go deeper and mix their own eLiquid. It's a little more complicated, but allows for more control over the characteristics of your eLiquid and its nicotine content. For more information about making your own eLiquid, check out our DIY Kits section.
Can I use your products to mix by weight?
Our liquids are contained in bottles designed for easy mixing. They are perfect for mixing by weight without any additional labware. Click here for a detailed look at our liquids and their bottles.
How should I store my nicotine?
For best retainment, you should store your nicotine products away from light, heat and oxygen. Check this page out for more information on storing your nicotine.
Where are Liquid Barn products made?
Liquid Barn is based in California, where we are proud to manufacture all of our liquids for U.S. Distribution.
What are your manufacturing standards?
Liquid Barn eLiquids and flavors are manufactured in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) applicable to pharmaceutical and food grade products with primary ingredients that meet United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards.
What does PG/VG stand for?
PG stands for Propylene Glycol, while VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin. Both are base liquids found in finished eLiquid mixes. The term PG/VG often refers to the ratio of PG to VG in a finished mix. 50/50 for instance indicates eLiquid with 50% PG and 50% VG. The trend recently is to have higher percentages of VG versus PG. Our premixed eLiquid is an 80/20 blend (Because higher numbers typically are referred to first, in this case 80/20 refers to 80% VG and 20% PG).
Are eCigarettes safe?
eCigarettes are not without risk. While Liquid Barn works hard to make our juices as safe as possible, consumers are cautioned to read and adhere to the warnings on our website and the warning labels on our bottles. Please educate yourself before you vape, and vape at your own risk.
Are eCigarettes regulated by the FDA?
As of May 2016, the FDA began regulating eCigarettes and eLiquids as tobacco products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Implementation of FDA regulations is currently underway. Click here for important FDA dates.
What are ENDS?
ENDS stands for Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems, of which electronic cigarettes are the most common prototype. ENDS are devices that do not burn or use tobacco leaves but instead vaporize a solution the user then inhales. As of August 8th 2016, the FDA subjects ENDS to its authorities. Under this final rule, ENDS, as well as its components and parts, such as eLiquids, will be considered a Tobacco Product.
What is a Vape Device?
A vape device, or vape pen, is another term for eCigarette, and is the instrument that turns eLiquid into vapor. It consists of a rechargeable battery and a tank that screw together. It’s powered on and off by the user via a button on the pen. The tank is filled with eLiquid, which is then heated by the atomizer inside the tank.
Does Liquid Barn sell vaping devices?
No. Liquid Barn is committed to being the BEST eLiquid and eLiquid ingredient provider. We are solely focused on setting the standard for eLiquid in vaping. We are an eLiquid specialist and have no operations set up for selling vaping devices.
Will making my own eLiquid cost me more or less?
Making your own juice is definitely more affordable than purchasing so called “premium” juice. For under $20 at Liquid Barn, you can make over 500ml of eLiquid. Compare that to the average cost of $20 for 15ml-30ml of "premium" juice.
