While you love vaping, there is sometimes the desire to make your own vape juice. That notwithstanding, you would need to know the” Kits” needed to successfully carry out that desire. Here are some kits listed to ensure maximal productivity, how to use the listed items for safe consumption, and preservation.
Nicotine (Base or Salt)
Nicotine is a stimulant that is naturally produced in the nightshade family of plants. Nicotine constitutes approximately 0.6–3.0% of the dry weight of tobacco. Usually, consistent concentrations of nicotine varying from 2–7 µg/kg (20–70 millionths of a percent wet weight) are found in edibles such as potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplant. Nicotine is potentially harmful to non-users. And this is because of its high ratio. But at low amounts, it has a mild analgesic effect. To be safety conscious when using nicotine in your eLiquid, you should use an unflavored eLiquid base already mixed to the desired nicotine strength. BASE is available in 3mg/ml (0.3%), 6mg/ml (0.6%), 12mg/ml (1.2%) and 24mg/ml (2.4%) SALT. Nicotine Solutions are available in either a PG Base or VG Base.
You should note the following points before mixing your eLiquid. Your target Strength should be divided by your Base Strength, then multiply your result by your Batch Size. The result shouldn’t be different from the amount of your Nicotine Solution you will need, to add to your batch to reach your target nicotine
You definitely want to try moving your own batch of nicotine strengths. In that case, you should use a Nicotine Solution that can be diluted down to a “vape-able” strength.
This simple glycol compound is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is sweet-tasting and non-toxic. The glycerol backbone is found in lipids known as glycerides. Reconning to it’s antimicrobial and antiviral properties. It is also widely used as a sweetener in the food industry and as a humectant in pharmaceutical formulations. Vegetable glycerin is the variant made from plant oils. Research has it that it has been discovered more than two centuries ago by heating a mixture of olive oil and lead monoxide. Vegetable glycerin is made by heating triglyceride-rich vegetable fats — such as palm, soy, and coconut oils — under pressure or together with a strong alkali, such as lye. The pressure causes the glycerin to split away from the fatty acids and mix together with water, forming an odorless, sweet-tasting, syrup-like liquid. As regards it’s safe to use, it is often added to foods to help oil and water-based ingredients mix, sweetening or moistening the final product. Vegetable glycerin is a clear, odorless and sweet-tasting liquid derived from vegetable fats. If you want to try vegetable glycerin out, please start with a small amount to see how you react.
Propylene glycol is an organic compound that is a viscous, colorless liquid, which is nearly odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste. It is classified as a diol because it Contains two alcohol groups. It is miscible with a broad range of solvents, including water, acetone, and chloroform. Glycols are non-irritating and it has very low volatility and very low toxicity. Propylene Glycol is one of the main ingredients in e-liquid and is a need and very important for any DIY e-juice, and to dilute pre-made liquids. The odorless, and colorless, Propylene Glycol is known to enhance flavors and create more of a throat hit for those who want a similar experience to smoking. PG is great because it’s a great solvent (you can dissolve things in it) and it has a low toxicity rate make it great for use in many products including vapor products. It is advisable to drink plenty of water because PG can be a factor for dehydration. So please stay hydrated and drink plenty of water while vaping, as most e-juices contain some amount of PG. You could also consider using MAX VG vape juices. These are vape juices that have a high amount of VG and very little PG. if you’re worried about PG’s safety trying starting with a 50VG/50PG blend and choose vape juices with less VG and more PG and find what works for you. We hope this quick Propylene Glycol (PG) guide helped you out.
Chubby Gorilla Bottles
Chubby gorillas are designed for different purpose including E-Juice, E-Liquids, e.t.c . Especially e-liquids which keeps it safe, keeps it from leaking, and makes sure that when you unscrew, the contents come out exactly as you expect.”The collection of Chubby Gorilla bottles are created specifically for the storage and mixing of e-liquids. Constructed from a soft squeeze PET, a Chubby Gorilla bottle is completely shatterproof, which is a great choice for transporting spare liquids. It is also quick and easy for refills, while the child-resistant cap is crafted for full security and protection from leaks. Chubby Gorilla bottles are a must in your vape accessories kit.
The medical community uses pipette devices to precisely measure various liquids in “single drop” accuracy. Though it is more expensive, It is found to be very convenient and time-saving. While I mix by weight, if I were a volume mixer, I would definitely be using these. After a lot of research, it has been discovered that for less than $200, you can get an excellent setup, and never have to buy another syringe. It’s not for everyone, but the speed of which you can quickly make up a new batch of juice and cleanup will motivate you to do it more often. A pipette (sometimes spelled pipet) come in several designs for various purposes with differing levels of accuracy and precision, from single piece glass pipettes to more complex adjustable or electronic pipettes. Various pipettes you can use are as listed:
1) Adjustable pipettes,
2) Graded transfer pipette and electric pipette filler;
3) 25 mL, 10 mL, 5 mL, and 2 mL transfer pipettes;
4) Disposable tips for adjustable pipettes;
5) 12-channel adjustable pipette for microplates;
6) Low-retention 0.5–10 μl adjustable pipette;
7) Squeezable transfer pipettes;
8) Digital adjustable pipette;
9) Light-guided pipetting system. low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is used to draw and dispense liquids in controlled, reproducible drop sizes and it’s unbreakable.
Plastic transfer pipettes are the perfect substitute for breakable glass Pasteur pipets, which can be a danger to laboratory personnel. You should try these kits out and follow instructions therein, for maximal productivity and effectiveness.
