Wanted to try and help you out with a few things…
The best way to try and get an active member’s attention here is to “tag” them by using an ampersand, and then use the drop-down menu to select the member name (ie: @Nicotine_River). This puts a notification icon (the blue circle on the upper right over your user name that you see if someone likes a post you made, quotes you, tags you, etc).
Incidentally, if you see a green circle on the upper left, that means you have a PM (private message) or a new post on a private thread you may be involved in.
Most importantly, wanted to clear up the misunderstanding between freebase nic, and 100mg/ml nic.
Freebase nic (as I’ve always understood it) is pure nicotine, or 1000mg/ml (1gram).
1000mg nic has been “cut down” (usually for safe handling) by having been added to PG or VG (for our purposes/intents) to end up with 100mg. while 100mg is still ultra strong, it’s still potentially hazardous.
Regardless, I’ve been in some shops that use pure nicotine (aka freebase nic) and were you to ask for freebase nic, they might assume that you know what you’re doing, and make the mistake of selling it to you, not knowing that you’re thinking is only 100mg. You can see the inherent risk I’m sure, in just such a scenario…
At any rate, from a safety standpoint, and because things like this have happened (I’ve read on ELR, and elsewhere that folks unknowingly bought freebase…), my personal take is the onus is on you for that extra layer of safety! YOUR safety (or a family member, roommate, pet… ). But you can’t know if you don’t research, or someone doesn’t say something.
Anyways, NicotineRiver is awesome about responding, and phenomenal customer service, so I have no doubt you’ll get guidance.
But please don’t take my long-winded post as anything less than wanting to make sure you stay safe in these new endeavors!
Hopefully this helped!
