Nude Nicotine or My Freedom Smokes for Nicotineâ€¦

Thanks brother!

WL and I add flavors to boost it over the min order to get free shipping. Itâ€™s a win win combination for me.

Call me Guinea Pigâ€¦
I just ordered a 2 oz bottle of 500 mg/ml of nicotine in PG.
I had looked at ordering high strength nicotine from MFS and was told by them they only sell strengths higher than 100 mg/ml to registered wholesale customers. They are concerned about the liability issues. (Canâ€™t blame them really).
So I went on a search and found: https://www.e-liq.com/nicotine/e-liquid-nicotine
My reasoning:
ECONOMICS: Lets do the math.
Example:
I typically mix 20 ml test bottles to a finished nicotine strength of 6mg/ml. With 100 mg/ml that is 1.51 mg or 1.2 ml of nicotine solution. To obtain 6 mg/ml in a 20 ml bottle with 500mg/ml (PG), the required weight of the solution is .25 mg or .24 ml by volume. (obviously 5 times less is required by weight of volume)

The 2 oz bottle of 500 mg/ml from e-liq costs around \$20.00 and will yield approximately 246 20 ml bottles (59.15 ml / .24 ml = 246.458). That is a total yield of 4928 ml (20 ml x 246 = 4928 ) of 6 mg finished e-liquid. Just under 5 liters.
In comparison:
A 125 ml bottle of 100 mg/ml bottle from MFS @ \$20.00 will yield 2083.5 ml of 6 mg finished e-liquid. Just over 2 liters.
Itâ€™s a real â€śno brainerâ€ť.
Of course many more precautions must be taken for safety with that level of nicotine. A VERY accurate scale is an absolute must. (I have a very nice â€¦and very expensiveâ€¦ gun powder scale that I trust implicitly and calibrate regularly). Shooting is a whole other forum.
I welcome your thoughts on this. I have placed the order, If I donâ€™t like the nicotine, I wonâ€™t feel too very bad about pitching \$20 down the drain and into the trash. To me, the economics are worth the experimentation.

I believe bulk apothecary sell VG and PG for cheaper than the top of the thread. I will say I find it to be very high quality stuff.

For nicotine, well, I dont use much so I buy "the best,"Nude Nicotine, and I have it packaged in their â€śnude armorâ€ť package that excludes oxygen so I get a long shelf life. I can say that at 4mg after a two week steep that I cannot taste the nicotine at all. . .which is really bad if you are driving, not expecting a buzz from your juice selection, and suck down a TFV4 tank full. I nearly had to pull over I was spinning so badly.

OK, my \$0.02. YMMV, etc. Cheers!

For those in the UK that read this I have found

CLASSIKOOL VG/PG to be of great quality and 1000ml is around ÂŁ7

Vapers emporium have great quality NIC 250ml 72mg ÂŁ16.99

CMJ

They claim to be Pharma Grade 99.8% pure, but thereâ€™s no CofA on their website to confirm that.
Is their VG really true to its label?

6 year old post sorry.

I now use LUBRISOLVE VG and PG.

A lot has changed since then.

Back then I was paying ÂŁ26 for 1000ml 72mg NIC now itâ€™s ÂŁ26 for 250ml 72mg NIC lol.

Times change. I havenâ€™t used Classikool for a very long time sorry.

WOW! I did not really expect a reply, thanks!

Did you switch due to price or quality? Any comments on Lubrisolve are very welcome.

To be perfectly honest with you I canâ€™t remember why I switched. Lol.

I literally have zero complaints about LUBRISOLVE for their products.

Neither do any of the people I make juice for.
