Question:

Does the flavored juice/liquid used for e-cigarettes need a hechsher?

The ingredients are usually Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerol (VG), Water, Nicotine and carefully selected flavourings formulated specifically for the e-cigarette devices to offer a satisfying vapour experience.

I saw din online’s previous answers regarding Pesach that they are not a problem of chametz since it’s not edible etc. , but does that mean that for the rest of the year they don’t need to have a hechsher as well?

Answer:

I heard that you can get flavors with a hechsher. But even if not you can rely on the lenient opinions.
