I have been meaning to post this for some time as a description of my findings when making nic salts at home for the first time. but I have been prevaricating for a while and the BA took ages to arrive from Poland I will post each element of the process as I complete it.
Tonight we are making and quantifying the Benzoic acid solution.
The process is pretty simple but there is a bit of basic maths involved and of course you need VG and or PG, nicotine in PG and of course Benzoic acid.
Ok the baseline for this is the Juul patent which says that 0.3g of benzoic acid should be mixed with 0.4g of nicotine. This can be said to be 300mg BA to 400mg nicotine.
I made a 10% BA solution in VG by mixing 10g BA with 90g VG. Heat was applied up to 55 degrees C and the mixture was stirred and shaken to dissolve as much as possible. Assuming that the specific gravity of VG is 1.25 (90g of VG is approximately 72ml) we then have a solution containing 138mg/ml Benzoic acid.
Ok i’m going to leave that overnight, agitate some more in the morning with more heat and then make the 50/50 nic salts. I see you tomorrow
