    Ok so I've searched all over town for some USP vegetable glycerin, and this is the best I've found. I thought all was good until I saw the caution on the back. Unfortunately, I can't find any USP label on it, so I don't know if it's good to use. I've seen on Reddit that others have used it with no problems but that was a few years back. The lady at the store was surprisingly helpful and immediately asked if it was for vaping. She said she didn't know if this stuff was what I wanted it for but said as long as I keep the receipt, I can take it back for a refund. But that's neither here nor there. Is this stuff safe for vaping if I'm in a bind? I have a couple of PG based flavors to mix with it. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I do not see were it says Vegetable Glycerin unless your looking for PG Go look at ecigexpress.com and look at what they sell.

    I've used this before. Ran out, thinking I still had enough, so picked this up. Honestly, couldn't tell any difference with what I normally use. Granted, online deals are much cheaper, but this will do in a pinch.

    USUALLY if it does NOT says its VG it's PG......

    Think i saw VG at either Walmart or Walgreens don't recall which. Should be able to glycerin at beauty supply store also. As long as it's pure no fragrance or other added ingredients should be ok.

    I have used the CVS VG several times when my gallon jug ran out and it vapes great. Can't tell any difference between it and the VG I usually use. Hobby Lobby VG different story.

    Thanks for the input guys. I put a few drops in my goon. It may be a placebo effect but the clouds, although not a large mass, look thick enough to cut. And they stay there, whereas a70/30 mixture will slowly fall apart. I will further experiment... lol

    Glycerin is just a short name for VG.
    I've used NOW brand from my health food store in the past without any problems.
    It was also listed as a beauty/skin care item.
