    Nicotine probably doesn't survive burning, but that's irrelevant. Hot smoke from the burning ember at the end of a cigarette is pulled through adjacent tobacco that has yet to burn where it vaporizes nicotine and carries it to the smoker.

    I've read somewheres that there are 40 substances in cigarettes that are addictive.

    But how is it that the throat hit comes from nicotine if we don't inhale it?

    And what about snus? It's somehow like injecting, isn't it?

    So there is no nicotine in cigarette smoke?

    Why was I addicted to smoking?

    Why did a vape with 24mg of nicotine make it so easy for me to quit smoking when nothing else worked?

    Is there nicotine in my vapor?

    I am thoroughly confused now.

    Is there a specific UC that you highly recommend?
    Id like it to do larger batches so that I could mix my flavors and then steep them all at the same time.

    I had the same question so I googled around:

    RY 4 (RY4) is a sweet tobacco with undertones of caramel and vanilla.

    I have seen you in the forums raving about adding saline to your mixes.. Do you not add saline to all your recipes?

    Yet for some reason ejuice is in freebase form? I have noticed most lozenges/patches etc have nicotine in a various salt or oxide form. I have also noted that nicotine in tobacco does not exist as a freebase, nor is it likely that tobacco smoke has any freebase in it at all.The Smoker's Club, Inc. Encyclopedia 16

    Yet we use titration kits that test for 'freebase' nicotine to verify nicotine content. So if it oxidizes, or the flavoring is acidic and forms salts, the test kit won't work. There will still be nicotine present though. This may explain some inconsistencies in the past.

    I've also noticed in my experience with extractions, that nicotine in salt form has near zero throat hit, even at 36 mg/ml. I think it may be the caustic alkaline effect of freebase nicotine that causes throat hit.

    Actually you are a bit confused. You have the general idea but there is no ry1 in this recipe.
    the toffie and hazelnut are not used as notes at all they are used as flavor enhancers for the chocolate taste.

    The chocolate cream is the base flavor

    the hazelnut is used to enhance the flavor of the base note and bring out the chocolate flavor

    The toffie is used to bring out the sweet creamieness of the chocolate.
