Kate is right, those are flavoring. I looked on my JC bottle and nicotine is listed seperatly with a warning.
Why you can't buy Nicotine Alkaloid
Yet another account of how dangerous this stuff can be to work with. As stated, you simply can't buy nicotine alkaloid. Besides being dangerous, I don't think it could be cost-effective to attempt to extract it either when compared to currently available prepared smoking liquids. My conclusion is that, in the full sense of the concept, there is never going to be an acceptable method to make the liquid at home in a form that is compatible with vaporizing devices. Apparently, the only real possible antidote to accidental poisoning is not readily available outside of the labs at Phillip Morris.
Strange Death From Liquid Nicotine [06/07-2]
EXCERPTS FROM:Why did a Philip Morris scientist kill herself by drinking nicotine?
By Dan Zegart June 6, 2000 | It had snowed, an event rare enough in Richmond that it seemed to put a strain on everybody and everything. Diana Dollinger had been holed up in her apartment virtually all weekend, scribbling notes, worried she was getting fat. These were neurotic obsessions. She was in fact an attractive, svelte twenty-eight-year-old, an entry-level researcher well thought of by other chemists at Philip Morris. She left behind a few relatives in the Richmond area when she died very early one Monday in January 1982, but no one claimed to know why she had drunk liquid nicotine, 100 percent pure, straight out of a brown bottle she'd smuggled home from the Philip Morris Research Center. She died a death experienced by several rats at the research center, but few people anywhere in the world. The victim loses control of its limbs and collapses as the bowels and bladder discharge, and the end comes in a wrenching, gasping convulsion.
Diana Dollinger would have had to go to some trouble to get the brown bottle, because nicotine wasn't used in the Physical Research Division building where she was part of a unit that analyzed how tobacco burns, an essential but unglamorous branch of the company's product research. It got William Farone, then-director of applied research at Philip Morris, who supervised Dollinger's unit and others, wondering whether there was a message in her method.
"If you've got a choice, why pick that particular chemical?" he said to another scientist. Indeed, a chemist at Philip Morris would have been among a select few in the country who could appreciate just how nasty nicotine really is. Many at the research center learned the hard way that merely leaving a bottle of the clear liquid open in a warm room brings on a wave of coughing and gagging, followed in short order by dizziness and nausea. A few drops on a small cut on the skin are fatal within minutes unless the victim gets a shot of mecamylamine, which blocks nicotine's effect and is another thing that would be found at Philip Morris and very few other places.
On the other hand, if anyone ever considered trying to extract their own nicotine, in order for it to be cost effective you would need a cheap source of tobacco. This is the cheapest source available for bulk tobacco.
so how do you suppose Johnson's Creek and other manufacturers are making their eliquid?
from raw materials, or are they getting everything in bulk and portioning it out?
adding their own flavor, or is it already flavored?
can we get the 36mg PG in bulk?
where do the flavorings come from? does each manufacturer devise their own, or is ALL this stuff coming from one warehouse in china?
Pure nic is made in the USA and sold in small bottle, but you have to be a University or a business with all the proper paper work to buy it.

nicotine is ultra,ultra toxic.
The handling is extremely dangerous, it can even be fatal just by absorbing through the skin. And you think you're confidential enough to "mix" your own stuff where a few mg +/- off in your calculations can be absolute fatal?
Something only a qualified lab technician should do, really.
Everyone needs to forget about this idea and buy a pre mix from one of the sponsors here or from overseas. Too dangerous to be playing with pure nicotine!
Thread closed lol
i think its scary that i wat to try drinking pure nicotine ..... yeah this is a bit off topic but i think i saw something on the forum about a 48mg juice ..... cant find it again ... can any one help me out
Well if the problem is handling of pure nicotine, then ask the lab it they can make a special formula, 36% nicotine 64% PG.
