New to NET tobacco extracts--have questions!

Hey all, I am just starting out making my own NETs from pipe tobaccos. I used to smoke a pipe, but had to quit using nicotine. So, I’ve taken my favorite tobaccos and have them macerating in 100% PG as I’ve read you’re supposed to do. While I wait (what…a couple months?), I ordered some NET vape liquid from Black Note and another smaller operation. I am hugely underwhelmed at the taste. It’s like syrup with a hint of tobacco flavor…not at all the “tastes like a fresh tin of tobacco smells” promise. So, here are my questions for those with experience:

  1. Is homemade NET that much better, or do I have the same overly sweet, less like tobacco taste to look forward to?
  2. For those with pipe experience, do you find that certain tobaccos/blends lend themselves to better flavor extraction than others? I am a huge VaPer (Virginia Perique) fan and am okay with some latakia.
  3. I read that you should wait and shake daily for 1-2 months. Is longer than that even better?
  4. What’s the favorite straining method that retains flavor?

Thanks so much!

Welcome and glad you joined.


You need to know what you are doing when filtering and extracting. Some types of tobacco contain over 30% sugar. Virginia, for example.
Vaping sugar is absolutely not recommended.
