I agree with every word you said brother. I've used Essentials Depot with excellent results. But I've also used Wizard Labs, Nicotine River, and a couple others. Never noticed a dimes with of difference in them. In fact I'd wager that some people could be surprised to learn the biggest difference between the ones they have tried is the label on the jug. Just a hunch there. Now if folks could just specify what makes a good vs a sub par USP VG I'd love to know. Otherwise I'm chalking it up to the placebo effect.
Oh yeah, that statement about Essential being the worst has to be a joke.
