I’m making a Part Two of “Critique my Newby first order” hoping it may help other Beginners in the future, AND to hopefully get a few more comments from all the great people who shared their knowledge and wisdom with me in the first part. THANKS AGAIN TO ALL !!
In Part Two, I am posting my actual purchase items with total cost and some comments as well.
I will end up placing my order with Nicotine River. I originally wanted to place my order with Liquid Barn because they offered grown in the USA tobacco for their 100% pure USA Liquid Nicotine. What’s the big deal? I was concerned by many comments on ELR that talked about “peppery” and “throat hit” nicotine. My goal was to get the purest nicotine available… right or wrong. HOWEVER, Liquid Barn is SOLD OUT of all quantities of their USA Liquid Nicotine.
For me, a beginner, I found it easiest to navigate BullCity, NicRiver and LiquidBarn websites. I tried other sites, but for varying reasons, ended up with these 3 for ease of ordering and One Stop Shopping.
I found everything on my list at NicRiver except my scale (LB-501 about $38 - Free Shipping) and 15 Ml plastic bottles. These will come from Ebay.
It was suggested to me several times in my original post to “Buy a gallon! of VG” No, I said, I have a budget! BUT it turned out that buying a full gallon of VG was only a few dollars more so yep, got me a gallon of VG.
Comments and critique still welcomed!
So here’s my purchase list, total cost (Not including cost of the scale): $76.18 - FREE SHIPPING.
VG: 1 Gallon
