  1. NETs Versus WTA

    by , 01-08-2014 at 06:10 AM
    It has been discussed and at times stated that NETs are a less pure and less potent form of WTA.

    This is incorrect.

    Referring to a NET as a form of WTA is equivalent to a distiller referring to the wash (the low alcohol solution containing fermented grain sugars and spent grain solids prior to distillation) as a form of whiskey, as in, "The wash is a form of whiskey, just not that pure".

    No, it's simply something that has the potential to become whiskey ...

  2. The Last Word on Long-Term Storage of Nicotine Solutions

    by , 08-26-2013 at 06:03 AM
    I recently posted in a thread discussing long-term storage of nicotine solutions and it got me thinking that I should post something here on the topic. This is a bit of a repeat of a blog post I made some years ago, but it's been kinda buried under newer posts, so I figure it's time to resurrect it a newer post.

    A lot of folks go to great pains to try to keep their DIY nicotine solutions from turning yellow. Much is speculated about the storage-life of these solutions. Is it one ...

  3. WTA - What it is & What it isn't

    by , 08-16-2013 at 10:44 PM
    Recently, I've noted some confusion about whole tobacco alkaloids and particularly whole tobacco alkaloid e-liquids.

    What is WTA? What is a WTA e-liquid?

    WTA is simply the product of a difficult and involved extraction and cleanup of whole tobacco. It contains approximately 95% nicotine and 5% combined minor tobacco alkaloids. It contains nothing else. During the extraction process, tobacco alkaloids and a good bit of other undesirable material is extracted from the ...

  4. Whole Tobacco Alkaloids - A Bit of History

    by , 06-27-2013 at 07:11 AM
    Back in the fall of 2009, discussion was lively about what's missing for some individuals from nicotine eliquids. Those of us having those discussions were speculating madly. Maybe it's the beta-carbolines? (I was never a fan of this idea). Maybe it's MAOI's? There was no shortage of suggestions.

    While pondering over why snus satisfies so much better than nicotine e-liquid, I asked myself for perhaps the hundredth time, "Why does snus work so much better than eliquid?" ...

  5. Whole Tobacco Alkaloids - In the Beginning...

    by , 06-21-2013 at 06:50 AM
    Just thought it might be fun to post here an image from the distant past of WTA. It's on the forum, but buried so deep, I doubt many folks have seen it.

    Here's the first batch of WTA that I made back in the first week of November 2009. It wasn't even 0.5 mL, but somehow, it seems to have grown into something quite a bit larger.
