E-cig Fluid

Friday, August 23, 2013

Now that you know how to make your own e-cig, it is time to teach you how to make the fluid.

NEWS FLASH - This is not chemistry. E-cig fluid is nothing more than a mixture of ingredients. So you will not need any complex chemistry gear to make it, and there is only one substance that can be considered dangerous. Here we go.

To make the fluid that you will be vaping, there are several ingredients. Here they are.

Nicotine Solution - Here, use this. It is diluted enough that it should be safe, but wear gloves when using it, and only use it in a ventilated environment anyway. Safety first.

Propylene Glycol (PG)- Use this. This will be one of your fillers and flavor carriers. This stuff is almost perfectly safe.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG)- Use this. This is your other filler. If you want huge clouds of vapor, this is what you want.

Flavors - I get my flavors from here. What you get depends entirely on your personal taste. One caveat though, make sure that the flavors your order are not 'oil based'. As long as you obey that one rule, you are good to go.

Now you just need some small measuring devices, and a container. I use small bottles for the container, and blunt tipped syringes for the measurements.

Here is how you proceed. Each time you do this, it will be different because of wanting different amounts of PG, VG, Nicotine, and flavoring. So for this example, I will assume you want the following set amounts.

Amount to make - 15ml
Nicotine level - 12mg
50% PG, 50% VG
20% flavor

What these mean... The amount is obvious. At the end, you want to be left with 15ml of solution. You want there to be 12mg of Nicotine per ml in the bottle. You want the final solution to be about 50% PG, and 50% VG. You want there to be 20% flavoring in the solution.

I find that these values work well for me. Adjust them to your taste.

Now go here and enter the values.

For Nicotine Base, enter 60.
For Target Nicotine Level, enter 12
For Amount to Create, enter 15
For Flavor Percent, enter 20

You should get something like this as a result:

Recipe

ingredientml% of total
PG or VG with nicotine3.0 ml20.0%
PG or VG (no nicotine)9.0 ml60.0%
Water0.0 ml0.0%
Flavoring(s)3.0 ml20.0%

All you have to do now is to get your bottle, and using different syringes for each ingredient, extract the ingredients from their bottles, taking care to measure the amounts properly, and add them to your own bottle.

TIP: Add the nicotine LAST. The reason for this is that the nicotine is the most expensive ingredient. If you mess up somewhere, at least you are not out the big expense.

Now that everything is added to one bottle, cap it, shake it for a few minutes, and enjoy. Make sure to wash and rinse your equipment thoroughly. You are now making e-cig fluid the same way the big suppliers do!

The smoking ban has impacted the way that Americans spend their time out at restaurants, bars and night clubs. For some, the smoking ban has been all good, while for others, the ban was really impacted them negatively. This article discusses the good, the bad and even the "ugly" facts about the smoking ban that you may not have heard before!eliquid
