A 100ml bottle of the most basic ingredient for all e-liquid. On it's own, it has a faintly sweet, neutral taste but it is intended that you add flavourings to make it taste like any tobacco, fruit, drink you like.
It contains three ingredients (vegetable glycerine, propylene glycol and nicotine), all at a Europe Pharmacopeia grade so you can be assured of quality. These ingredients are available in proportions of your choosing to truly customise your vape.
Vegetable glycerine (VG) - an alcohol with a syrupy consistency, commonly used in cakes, sweets, and many home products. It provides a thick cloudy vapour with very little throat hit.
Propylene glycol (PG) - an alcohol with a thinner consistency, commonly used in gel capsules, foods and other home products. It provides a thinner vapour with lots of throat hit.
Nicotine - a stimulating drug with addictive properties. It is not carcinogenic (cancer-causing) but it is toxic in high doses and so should be used only in moderation. It is not recommended for pregnant women. Nicotine does not affect vapour production but does add throat hit. It is measure in milligrams (mg) dissolved in each millilitre (ml) base, so 9mg strength has 9mg per ml or, to put it another way, 0.9% of the volume is pure nicotine. Nicotine is provided in separate 10ml nicotine shots so simply add them to your base to provide the intended strength and consistency to your base.
Which mix to choose?
Most users will prefer a relatively even mix of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine, e.g. 60:40, 50:50 or 40:60. These provide a good balance between throat hit and vapour production. Pure PG liquids tend to be too thin to provide satisfying vapour and are course on the throat. Pure VG liquids tend to be very thick and difficult to wick but produce large clouds in tanks designed for them. If you are unsure of what to pick, look at the holes in the coil of your atomiser tank. If they are several millimeters wide then you can choose liquids with more VG, if not choose a more even mix.
For nicotine strengths, light smokers will probably prefer low (3mg) or no nicotine at all (0mg). Most moderate users/smokers will tend to use 12mg or 6mg strength.
Base is provided in 100ml bottle with a child-resistant cap. The base will be pre-mixed without nicotine and then separate 18mg nicotine shots provided in 10ml bottles. Simply pour these shots into the 100ml base bottle to bring it up to the ordered strength. Please ensure the base is evenly mixed before use by shaking well.
A nozzle cap is provided to assist in transferring liquid into other bottles for mixing. It is recommended the child-resistant cap is replaced after use to improve security.
You must be over 18 to purchase this product.
Under no circumstances should you drink e-liquid because nicotine is toxic in high doses and you would risk nicotine overdose, much like drinking too much caffeine in a sitting would risk caffeine overdose. Nicotine can pass through the skin (that's how patches work) and so if you spill any e-liquid on yourself, just wash it off with some water as soon as possible. Keep the bottles out of reach of children and pets at all times. For more guidance please see our vaping guide.
