How to Make Natural Vape Juice at Home without Nicotine


Note from CBD School: Due to the impact of the corona virus, we encourage those who vape to reconsider their decisions.

From our research, vaping has shown to be an aggravating factor for people who are infected with the virus. Read more here.

Furthermore, we consider vaping to be the least harmless way to use CBD products. Vape products can be adulterated. Even if vape products are clean, they can still be irritating to the lungs. We believe vaping poses the highest risk to CBD consumers.

We recommend looking into other ways of using CBD products like tinctures, capsules, and topicals from trusted retailers.

If you are going to vape, please do your homework and make sure you are buying from a trusted brand and you feel comfortable with all of the ingredients you are vaping. We encourage you to triple check everything.

When in doubt — do not put it in your lungs!

Looking for ways on how you can vape natural e juice at home, without any nicotine?

Look no further. In this article, we are giving you an amazing vape juice recipe that you can make at home and enjoy vaping without having to add any amount of nicotine.

Vaping has become popular worldwide, mainly because its thought to be a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking.

One of the other major reasons why people are transitioning to vaping is that it offers a vast number of flavors to vapers, making it more attractive and fun. 

A recent study even goes on to tell that majority of the vapers do actually like to vape non-tobacco flavors as they are super interesting and appeasing. 

In the United States, more and more smokers are quitting smoking and vaping instead to remain healthy.

When you are professional-level vaper, odds are that you have already tried most flavors of e juice on the market and are looking for more creative and new flavors you can get your hands on. 

It is only natural for you to get bored of the flavors you have been vaping for months on end.

Another reason why you might be thinking of making a DIY vape juice is that e liquids that are available on the market mostly have nicotine in them. 

It’s not news anymore that extensive use of nicotine can harm your health. 

It also needs to be noted here that nicotine in vape juice cannot be compared with the harmful effects of tobacco cigarettes in any way. 

Aside from without nicotine vaping CBD oil vaping is another option vapers can enjoy, you can learn more about it here.

Tobacco cigarettes contain cancer-causing agent called tar, which is exactly why people who smoke regularly or are chain smokers tend to have a number of serious health problems related to lungs. 

The e liquids do not contain tar or any such harmful component. 

It constitutes of, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, flavorings and nicotine. 

The amount of nicotine that can be found in an average e-liquid is not detrimental for health but if you use high doses of nicotine in your vape juice or do chain vaping, you might start to feel dizzy or get headaches because of excessive supply of nicotine to the body.

Vapers who are health conscious and are not addicted to nicotine or do not want to get addicted to it, want to reduce their nicotine intake to the minimum and still enjoy vaping. 

For all such vapers, making your own e juice at home without adding nicotine is a perfect solution. 

It is a win-win situation; you get to do vaping without any worries of nicotine.

Make Vape Juice at Home

DIY Vape Juice

Although a lot of vapers are of the view that making an e juice at home is impossible, they cannot be farther from the truth.

The reality is that you can very well make your own vape juice at home and have the flavor that you want to. 

Any odd flavors that you could never find in the vape market, now you can add it in your e juice. How cool is that, right?

You neither have to own a fancy lab or to be a pharmacist who knows his chemicals to make one at home. 

It is much more simple than that. If you are trying it for the the first time, we’d recommend that you follow this recipe completely. 

Once you know this recipe and have become an expert at making e juice at home, make as many variations as you want.

A huge advantage of making an e juice at home is that is a cost-effective solution when compared to the option of buying e juice from a store. 

By purchasing merely three ingredients (all of which are pretty cheap in price), you can make an excellent batch of vape juice that will last longer than a 50ml bottle of e juice.

Being a professional vaper, you’d be well-aware about how expensive it can be to purchase your favorite e juice especially from the world-renowned vape brands. 

But fortunately, you don’t have to worry anymore & you can get rid of vaping side effects if you are going to vape your own e juice without nicotine.

Let’s get started

Ingredients for DIY Vape Juice

When you want to make an e juice at home, you merely need three ingredients to do so. VG, PG and flavor of your choice.

The very purpose of making a vape juice is so that you can add a flavor you love to vape. 

The possibilities are absolutely endless when it comes to choosing a vape juice flavor. 

Get creative, you can do anything from selecting your favorite fruit flavor to mixing up different flavors into one. 

You can also use an ice-cream flavor, cake, cookie dough or simply anything that you like.

What are VG and PG?

VG stands for vegetable glycerin and PG stands for propylene glycol. They are the most widely used bases in the e-liquid industry.

Propylene glycol is the most commonly used base for e-liquids in vaping. 

It is runny, compared to VG and can create a mess if you are not careful with it. 

Its consistency is thinner than vegetable glycerin, which makes it easier to be cleaned.

The best thing about PG is the throat hit it delivers to vapers, being a humectant; keeping everything moist. 

It does not have a flavor of its own and thereof has no impact on the e-liquid flavor. 

Compared to VG, propylene glycol is less vicious. As a result, it helps vapers in having a better throat hit. 

Vegetable glycerin, on the other hand offers denser clouds to vapers. Vegetable glycerin is a sweet and thick e-liquid base. 

Having a distinctive taste of its own, it impacts the overall flavor of e-liquid slightly. 

Because of its thickness, it gets stuck to the sides of the coil and tank, which is difficult to clean. 

As the liquid is thick, it creates thick vape clouds – perfect for people who like to compete in vape competitions or just like the aesthetics of thick vape clouds.

Mixing of PG and VG

Making Vape Juice

Typically, because of their different characteristics, PG and VG are used in combination. 

The ratio mostly is 50/50 but some vapers prefer to have the ratio of 70/30 (VG/PG).

To be fairly honest, this proportion depends on you! 

If you want to have a throat hit, having PG in larger amounts will deliver that but if your aim is to make impressive vape clouds, having VG in a greater amount will give you that.

When you use a proportion of both VG and PG, you can get a good e juice. 

The ratio of VG/PG can be calculated easily by using vape calculators. 

While 50/50 ratio works with everyone, 70/30 (VG/PG) ratio is for seasoned vapers. 

If you are a beginner level vaper, you shouldn’t try the 70/30 ratio.

Recipe of Homemade E Juice without Nicotine

The other thing that you need for making vape juice at home is dropper cap bottles. 

They are required so that you can measure e juice and store them for later use. 

Making e juice is safe and none of the ingredients can pose any kind of danger to you. 

You don’t need to have safety goggles on or wear safety gloves to keep your hands safe.

Safety measurements are only required when nicotine is being added to vape juice. But you don’t need to worry about that!

Once you have measured the PG and VG liquids and you are happy with the ratio, shake it well for approximately a minute. 

Once the liquids are mixed well, add the flavors you want, only one drop at a time. 

Do not get in a hurry and try to put all the flavor at once.

As some flavors are strong, even a meagre amount of flavor is enough in the vape juice (think: less is more). 

Once you have mixed the flavor in your vape juice, it is good and ready to be vaped right-away.


Vape Juice On Storage

Rationally, you won’t be using all the e juice at once. 

Place the extra vape juice in sealed bottles. 

If you are using different flavors for your vape juice, do not forget to label the bottles accordingly. 

You don’t want to vape chocolate flavor e-liquid thinking it was cinnamon flavor, right? 

Store these bottles in a cold and dark space. Direct sunlight should not touch them as it can ruin their flavor.

When you are trying it for the first time at home, mistakes are bound to happen. 

You might not achieve the flavor you were aiming for or get the right consistency. 

It is perfectly with time, with time and practice – you will get better at it.

We hope after going through this article, you are no longer searching on how you can make an e juice at home without even a hint of nicotine.

    Great article, but how about mentioning where one can get VG and PG?

  • Richard Peterson says:

    If you want flavor, you can also order that online for cheap. A small bottle of flavor concentrate can make many bottles of e-juice.

  • Jason says:

    Be careful with the flavorings, especially cinnamon and vanilla, because the chemicals that make those flavors are extremely toxic. Other flavors have harmful chemicals too, but cinnamon and vanilla are the worst.

  • Bash says:

    can anyone make Eliquid without PG ? like an all 100% VG , or we can replace the PG with distilled water ?

  • Sylvia Mack says:

    There is no direct evidence that vaping affects weight or diet. But nicotine can affect weight and diet.

  • Nethan Paul says:

    Amazing article. Really liked it. I want to make this. I want to make vitamin vape at home. I am using nicotine free vape pen enriched with vitamin B12. I never smoked cigarette, but it is very easy to inhale. Well if I can make the vaporize vitamin at home, then there is no need to order it online. But I doubt whether I can make it properly or not.

    • Hey Nethan! Thanks for your comment and sharing your feedback 🙂

    • Greg Baughman says:

      Over the years I’ve seen several “additives” for vaping; caffeine, vitamins, etc.
      The bottom line is, you can’t get enough concentration from vaporizing and inhaling vitamins (or caffeine) for it to make a difference.
      Drink your cup of coffee, because you’d have to vape several hundred ml’s of e-liquid to get as much caffeine as one cup of coffee.
      Take a vitamin pill; same reason.
      Don’t add anything to your e-liquid that isn’t necessary (such as food coloring, vitamins, caffeine, etc.)

  • Greg Baughman says:

    I have been mixing my own e-liquid for about 5 years now. There are a couple of important things to know before making your own.
    Many food flavorings (such as you buy at the supermarket) contain alcohol, lipids, or other bad things for vaping. Additionally, they’re not concentrated enough. Many contain food coloring (and as we say in my circles, “Every time you vape food coloring, you dye a little inside!”).

    Flavorings must be water soluble as well; you *never ever* want to vape “oil” of any sort. Oils are lipids, and that’s how you end up with lipid pneumonia. Your lungs can’t clear oil out, and it collects in your lungs.

    Additionally, avoid “all natural” flavorings. I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but if, for example, you’re using a natural strawberry flavor, this would contain a lot of sugars and fats (see the lipid pneumonia above), and once again isn’t nearly concentrated enough to give you a good flavor.

    Here’s the thing; your tongue is like a jig-saw puzzle. When flavor molecules “fit” into the tongue, you sense that flavor. So, you don’t actually *need* strawberries to get a strawberry flavor, you just need molecules that fit to trick the tongue into thinking you’re getting strawberry. This is done with esters; a lab-created chemical that fools your tongue into thinking you’re tasting something, without the additional sugars, lipids, fats, etc.

    Some great flavor companies (no, I don’t work for any of them, like I said, I’ve just been making my own e-liquid for years now) include Capella, Liquid Barn, Flavorah, FlavorArt, Flavor West, Inawera, and The Flavor Apprentice. (that’s not a complete list, but those are the brands I use for flavoring).

    And the flavors! Fruits and vegetables, beverages, candies & desserts, nuts and spices, mints… it just goes on and on!

    Start simple. Start with a single flavor before you start getting into more complex mixes. Eventually, you’ll be experimenting like I am; I’ve created some awesome recipes on my own.. such as “Peanut Butter and Nanner Sandwich”, “The Duke” (a caramel tobacco flavor), “Tropical Dreams” (a pineapple/coconut), “Butter Cookie” (remember the ones you used to put on your finger? Yup…)

    One final resource for you, which will help you a LOT… I use it regularly is a website called e-liquid-recipes dot com. It has THOUSANDS of recipes, as well as flavor profiles and mixing strength recommendations under the “resources” tab.

    I hope this is helpful. Vape on! –Greg
