Virgin Vapor E-Liquid Review
Virgin Vapor is a little bit different than other e-juice providers, specifically known for their high quality, organically flavored e-liquid. Like most companies featured on our website, all of their ingredients are U.S. sourced, but they contain no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. With dozens of different flavors, Virgin Vapor is a leader in purity – 100% ORGANIC & ADDITIVE-FREE.
About Virgin Vapor E-Juice
If purity is your primary concern, Virgin Vapor e-liquid is, by far, one of the best options on the market. Although the company is small (based out of Lower Lake, CA), their dedication to producing high-quality, organic e-juice is second to none. All of their ingredients are U.S. sourced, certified organic and contain no artificial additives. This means no DEG, no artificial flavorings, no artificial colorings and no artificial sweeteners. They even use glass bottles to prevent chemicals from leaching into your e-liquid.
Virgin vapor offers two different base options – 50/50 PG/VG or 100% vegetable glycerin. All PG is USP certified, and their VG is not only USP pharmaceutical grade, it's certified organic as well. Unlike some companies that use flavorings containing propylene glycol, Virgin Vapor's 100% VG is truly propylene glycol free.
Our Opinion of Virgin Vapor E-Liquid
With nearly 100 different flavors to choose from, Virgin Vapor has quite a selection of unique and creative products. It's obvious that Annette, the owner and “head chef”, has put a lot of time and effort into creating a distinctive line of e-juice that stands out from the crowd. Although our experience with Virgin Vapor was limited prior to this review, we chose three appealing flavors for our initial testing and Annette was kind enough to send us three additional samples.
Especially popular with PG-sensitive vapers and 100% VG fans, we chose 50/50 PG/VG (at 8mg nicotine) since our team prefers PG/VG combos. We let it steep for a month and all three members of our team vaped each flavor for at least 24 hours, giving us plenty of time for an accurate evaluation.
As you'd expect from a 50/50 mix, most of the flavors produced an excellent combination of flavor and vapor. For the most part, the throat hit was mild, but still satisfying. Since we only sampled six of Virgin Vapor's flavors, here's a quick overview and our overall ratings for each:
- Organic Black Cherry Marshmallow (4.5/5) – Described as “true black cherry” with “a light, powdery, marshmallow sweetness” – Virgin Vapor's description is SPOT ON. An appealing flavor with just the right amount of cherry and hints of light, fluffy marshmallow; it lacked the strong cough syrupy taste that plagues many cherry flavors. Authentic black cherry with subtle, creamy undertones… a nice all day vape that everyone enjoyed.
- Organic Kona Coffee Milkshake (4/5) – If you've been overwhelmed (or disappointed) by coffee flavors in the past, this one is definitely worth a shot. Although it had a subtle espresso aftertaste, it wasn't overly powerful and was nicely complimented by sweet, creamy caramel and chocolate. A well balanced and enjoyable vape, even for those of us that avoid coffee-flavors.
- Organic Maple French Toast (5/5) – Very sweet and flavorful! Lots of maple mixed with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and possibly some nutmeg. It has the buttery sweet smoothness of real french toast and we were thoroughly impressed with this tasty, rich and super delicious vape.
- Organic Plum Crazy (2.5/5) – Plum Crazy was one of the freebies sent with our samples and it received the least fanfare from our team. The flavor itself was pretty accurate, but it was so subtle that it left us hanging and wishing for more. On inhale there was almost no flavor, and during exhale the subtle (but tasty) plum aftertaste was barely noticeable. Not a bad flavor, it just lacked the depth and richness that we typically prefer.
- Organic Root Beer Float (3.5/5) – Just like the old-fashioned root beer barrel candies, Organic Root Beer Float was a nice mix of spicy, sugar sweetness. We definitely thought it was too light on the creamy, vanilla side for it to be considered an authentic root beer float, and it was probably too sweet to vape regularly, but overall it was still an enjoyable flavor.
- Organic Wild Blue Punch (3.5/5) – A nice combination of watermelon, blueberry and other fruit flavors, Wild Blue Punch has a noticeably strong emphasis on blueberry and produced a subtly sweet and tangy aftertaste. An decent fruity, summer time vape, but we've definitely tried better.
Overall, we were pleased with our first Virgin Vapor experience. In every one of our reviews there are winners and losers in the bunch, and Virgin Vapor was no exception. Plum Crazy was definitely weak in the flavor department, and several of us felt like Wild Blue Punch was a bit too tangy. Otherwise, we enjoyed all the other flavors, with Maple French Toast and Cherry Marshmallow the clear standouts. Although their flavors didn't necessarily knock our socks off, if organic ingredients are your thing then Virgin Vapor e-juice is definitely the best option out there.
Expert Product Feedback…
Vaping is obviously much safer than smoking, but if there's any way to make it safer – I'm all for it. Considering Virgin Vapor's pricing is in-line with most “premium” e-juice companies and it's 100% organic with no artificial additives, I think I'll be ordering again. I enjoyed most of the flavors we tested, and feel an extra level of confidence with Virgin Vapor's products. Personally, I thought Maple French Toast was the best, followed by Root Beer Float and Cherry Marshmallow. Not a fan of Plum Crazy or Wild Blue Punch, but more testing is definitely around the corner. – Vanessa Salias
