You walk into your local smoke shop and look around, getting lost in all of the choices. You are needing to purchase new, premium juice for your vape pen because the last one you had wasn’t that great; however, you are a little confused by the differences between the various brands in front of you. You also aren’t completely sure which juices are good quality for the price you are willing to pay.
Vape juices (and THC vape juice) and CBD oils are so ubiquitous nowadays—they are everywhere and there are almost too many brands to choose from online and in stores.
How do you know the best premium brand to choose? And does popular or readily available always mean premium?
According to Vaping 360, the differences between a premium and regular vape juice are obvious:
- Consistent taste per bottle
- Complex and accurate recipes
- Proprietary or rare flavorings
- Smaller batch size
- Unique tasting
- Traceability per bottle
- Harder for DIYers to clone
- Susceptible to inconsistency
- Generic recipes
- Off-the-shelf flavorings
- Made for mass consumption
- Tastes like other brands
- No traceability
- Easier to replicate
