Is vapor also unhealthy for lungs? | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers

Is vapor also unhealthy for lungs?

Chris Worth’s reply: Something that isn’t pure air is unhealthy for the lungs and the system basically. Pure air, although, is at present solely out there up a mountain and mid-ocean, since we polluted all over the place else. Vaping is a number of orders of magnitude safer than smoking cigarettes. Precisely how…

Sweeteners | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Sweetener?

Super Sweet not the same as TFA Sweetener
(Originally I suggested using 25% of cap ss vs tfa Sweetener in a recipe)

After learning more about super sweet I’d say don’t use it at all. And be aware that not all Sweetener is equal. Meaning using the wrong one can drastically change a recipe or even ruin it.

Daily Mix Tip: Forget about speed steeping. | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: Forget about speed steeping. In an endless pursuit to figure out how to make e-liquid mixed and immediately vapeable like it would taste 3 weeks to 2 months from now, not one single method I’ve tested resulted in a liquid that was adequately steeped. There may be methods that the commercial big boys are using that create an almost steeped version to finish steeping on the shelves and remains stable enough for long enough to be sold and vaped, but most of those methods are well outside the financial reach or space of most at home mixers. Magnetic stirrers, ultrasonic water baths with/out heat, vortex mixers, microwaving, seed steeping, or any of the supposed advanced methods do vary little to reduce the amount of time steeping that most recipes will need. Create a few recipes with flavors you enjoy vaping fresh and as they steep so that you have a few shake and vape recipes to use while your other recipes get a good hand-shaking and are stored away in a dark cool place for 1-6 weeks. Save your money, buy more flavors! http://ow.ly/CQU530cJp3C

Daily Mix Tip: If you’re looking for an exact 1 to 1 clone | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: If you’re looking for an exact 1 to 1 clone of your favorite commercial e-liquid, get that thought out of your mind. Figuring out the exact recipe is generally not going to happen, not because the flavorings are hard to get, but because figuring out the exact percentages and combination is usually damn near impossible for most average palates. To create a Remix of your favorite flavor will require identifying the flavor profile as best you can, write it down, then purchase flavorings you think it might be to test (if you don’t have them on hand.) You can also search through the recipe sites or ask around the groups if anyone has any recipes that resemble that profile, this can help you gather a shopping list. No it is not cheap to recreate a commercial juice, because there are a lot of brands out there, so prepare for buying the same flavor across multiple brands in order to figure out which one it may be.

While you are looking to create your favorite commercial e-liquid, don’t forget to continue to try out or create new flavor profiles you may in turn love even more than your favorite commercial brand. You’ll always have something to vape as long as you keep mixing. http://ow.ly/vQdK30cKsHi

Understanding Nicotine Strengths and Percentages – Vaping360


Understanding Nicotine Strengths and Percentages

Every new vaper knows the confusion. Shopping for your usual 12 mg/mL nicotine level, you don’t see the option there. Instead, the e-juice comes in either 0%, 0.3%, 0.6%, 1.2% and 1.8% nicotine. So what do you do? What’s the difference between nicotine strengths written as mg/mL and those written as percentages? How do you convert from one to the other?

Nicotine strength in mg/mL

Most of the time, e-liquid nicotine strengths are shown in mg/mL, which stands for milligrams per milliliter. This means that for every milliliter of e-liquid in the bottle, there is the specified amount of nicotine.

For a 6 mg/mL e-juice, this means every milliliter contains 6 mg of nicotine. If you need to work out the total amount of nicotine in a bottle or in a tank, just multiply the strength in mg/mL by the number of milliliters of it you have.

For example, if you fill up a 5 mL tank with 6 mg/mL e-liquid, you have 5 mL × 6 mg/mL = 30 mg of nicotine in your tank. In the same way, a 10 mL bottle of 6 mg/mL e-liquid contains 60 mg of nicotine in total.

Nicotine strengths as percentages

Nicotine strengths as percentages are very similar, but a little easier to understand. Instead of combining a mass (in mg) and a volume (in mL), percentages use the volumes of both. In simple terms, figures like 0.3% or 1.8% just tell you how much of the liquid in the bottle is nicotine.

This means that if you have some e-liquid containing 1.2% nicotine, any amount you measure out will be 1.2% nicotine and 98.8% PG, VG and flavorings.

Technically, this measurement is called “nicotine by volume,” in the same way the percentages on a bottle of liquor are “alcohol by volume” or ABV for short. “Nicotine by volume” is sometimes shortened to NBV too.

You could also work out the percentage by mass, if you wanted to, but e-liquid companies usually don’t do this. We work with e-juice in mL, so they do to.

Converting from mg/mL to percent and back

Converting from a nicotine strength in mg/mL to a percentage is really easy. Just divide the amount in mg/mL by 10. So if you have a 6 mg/mL e-juice, this is equal to a 0.6% e-juice. An 18 mg/mL e-juice is equal to a 1.8% e-juice. And if you had a high-strength nicotine base of 72 mg/mL, this would be 7.2%

The conversion couldn’t be any simpler. To convert back from percentages to mg/mL, just multiply it by 10.

More detail on combining weights and volumes

Practically, this is all you’ll need to know to switch between percentages and mg/mL values confidently. But if you’re interested in why exactly it works out like that, here’s a bit more information.

The issue is slightly complicated because values in mg/mL mix mass and volume. This convention originated in China, where the first e-cigarettes were made. It wouldn’t be a problem, but to work out a percentage, you need two volumes to use, not one volume and one mass.

To work it out for yourself, you need to know how much volume each mg of nicotine occupies in liquid form. Nicotine has a density of 1.01 grams per cubic centimeter, which means that 1,010 mg of pure nicotine takes up one milliliter. We can use this to convert mg of nicotine to mL of nicotine.

First, we need to find the total amount of nicotine we’re considering, in mg. As covered earlier, this just means multiplying the nicotine strength – say 6 mg/mL – by the size of the bottle – say 10 mL. So in this case we have 60 mg of nicotine. Using the density of nicotine, this works out to about 0.059 mL of pure nicotine.

So to work out the percentage, you divide the volume of the nicotine by the total volume of the e-liquid and then multiply the result by 100. This means that the 10 mL bottle of 6 mg/mL e-liquid has (0.59 mL / 10 mL ) × 100% = 0.59% nicotine. Since we don’t need to be this accurate, it would be listed on the bottle as 0.6%.

You won’t need to actually do this, but this explains why all you need to do to go from mg/mL to a percentage is divide by 10. Nicotine has a similar density to water, so it’s basically 1 g per mL, and this makes the math really easy.

Congratulations: You’ll never order the wrong e-juice again

If you aren’t too traumatized from the impromptu math, you can now confidently explain what mg/mL means, what the percentage values on e-liquids mean and convert between them easily. No matter where you’re ordering from, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting.

E-cigarettes do not promote cancer growth in lab tests

A new study found no evidence that a commercially available e-cigarette vapor promotes the development of cancer in laboratory cells. In contrast, smoke from a reference cigarette was positive for cancer-promoting activity at very low concentrations.
