    I have a Nicoticket conundrum.

    I love Clark's juice. (ok that sounded so wrong)

    As you can see I have quite a bit of Nicoticket juice stockpiled to last me for awhile (they are all 50ml except for the center 3) . All in 12mg nic strength.

    I have reduced my nic level and I drip and use dual coil RBAs exclusively. So I can no longer vape 12mg of nic. It just kills my throat and makes me cough after every vape.

    Hence, the conundrum.

    Now if I was rich I could just either buy all new juice and just give these away or even toss them if I was a jerk, but I'm not rich. So I'm trying to figure out how to solve this problem.

    I've thought about just buying zero nic juice and mixing these 50/50 so I'd end up with a "vapable" level of 6mg.

    Three problems with this plan.


    1. Frenilla & Doodle's lowest nic level is 6mg. Mixing it with 12mg
    2. Grape Ape is no longer for sale.
    3. Even without those juices above, to buy enough to mix all these 50/50 with zero nic would cost me over $200. Which is just out of my budget right now.

    So... any other suggestions nicoticket people? (also posted to nicoticket's facebook page)

    Just a note, this is *not* a buy/sell/trade post - they can not exist in the Nicoticket forum. Any transactions need to take place (somewhere else).

    Not modding this post because I hope folks can offer some suggestions, possible work-arounds, solutions... but please don't step on ECF's toes by diving into "I'll buy that" (here, at least!)

    Put them up in the classifieds here on ECF? Use the proceeds to buy the replacements. Nicoticket seems to move VERY quickly in there. I know I might be interested in buying some virus cls and cb

    I'm confused how it would cost you over $200 to dilute? or am I missing the point entirely?

    for about $50, you can get nic, PG and VG and go to town!

    Flavor would suffer, by most peoples accounts, by diluting with unflavored base/nic. I know you actually prefer a bit less flavor, but, it might also be a viable option for Ken - good call.

    14 bottles 50 ml
    $21+ per bottle

    $294 replacement.....or...more accurately the cost to purchase enough of the same flavors in low nic to dilute

    can't make out the dates, but I would think especially if they're nice and steeped

    Some other out of the box solutions - Grape Ape mixes very well with PBC, which is available in Near Zero

    Frenilla will definitely be avail in near zero on the next run.

    Doodle is in line to get a near zero offering.

    I linked you the Nicoticket Juice Swaps thread on Facebook.

    The classies isn't a bad option, honestly - since you are a trusted NT family member, the liquid is in high demand, and it's so difficult to steep... many people might consider this as an opportunity since you have effectively done the heavy lifting (waiting) for them. LOL Aside from the Grape Ape (which is no longer avail, and thus even more in demand)... all those flavors get significantly better with time (and thus, should go up in value, not down). You can't turn a profit on the ECF classifieds, but unlike some other gently vaped liquid, it's not going to devalue significantly either. It might actually increase in value - that could be a great pick-up for someone who is a 12mg vaper and suddenly realized they don't have any adequately steeped liquid in the box! (Or, it will certainly jump-start the steeping rotation!)

    What Kent and a wondering soul said, and I'm a he. :p

    Than you guys for the suggestions. It looks like i may have to sell some. They are all steeped... which is part of the reason I'm looking for some other solution. LOL I really like all of them, though Radioactive is my ADV.

    I'd do the mix down thing at a pace you can afford. When I went from 18 to 12, no problem. 12 to 6, I wanted to duct tape the drip tip to my lips and hard wire the fire button closed. I'm there, now, but tweren't easy. Anyhow, get a few 15 or 30 ml bottles of 6 and mix with the 12 for a level of 10. Then, when your bottle will fit in another 15ml, you mix down to 8 or so. Good thing is there'll be no steeping, as the mix will become the color of the old practically overnight. After you get down to 8 or so, you just vape it normally until you're ready to purchase a bigger bottle in 6.

    Im still drooling at all the bottles... I know the feeling though, I just had a whole stock pile of 12 and PIF'd to a good buddy whos even broker than me. I really would suggest buying some pg/vg and dilluting it a tad. I've done it on my 18 mg CLS I had and honestly barely lost any flavor at all. Or like others have said put it on the classies, even at 12 that stuff will move and quick, especially the Limited Run flavors.

    I didn't understand the original post, sorry!

    but as Silense said, you may not notice a difference if you dilute with unflavored, especially after a little steeping time.

    I'm a flavor junkie, and with the RM2, I have to dilute, or it's overload (and gunks my coils and wick faster)- I can actually taste the juices better and enjoy them much more when cut in half with 50/50 nic'd unflavored. and then I can customize any juice to the nic level I want.

    This^^

    Hmm...Additional thought - you could dilute by 30% unflavored instead of 50% for 9mg/ml and you can also mix the dilution in a small test batch. 6.66 mls original stuff and 3.33 unflavored and sample it (or of course 50/50 if ya want). That way you spend minimal money and test it before you go dilution crazy on all your tasty juice.

    I know this is so random and not really having anything to do with this thread but boy my grape ape is looking mighty fine right now and I still have an unopened bottle. As for your juices.. Dood I hear you. I have bedrock in 12mg nic and I cant drip it at all.. its way too much for me. Do you have a KFL or something else to use them in? 12mg nic dripping is impossible.

    I would think 1-2 bottles of H1N1, CLS, and CB at NZ should mix well with everything you have up there. If you want, replace the RA completely or just get a bottle of NZ and mix with what you have. Sell the GA. I'm sure you can get more for it than what you paid. That should net to about $50 or less out of pocket, but you'll have more juice than what you started with.

    I'd discourage anyone from flipping the liquid for profit, especially to family, but at a bare minimum he should get his $$ back. (fair market value)

    You're right. I hate scalping also. When I worked in pro sports, I found it extremely annoying. But in some cases, I feel it gives some buyers an advantage if they truly desire something. I guess there are gray areas for everything.

    That Doodle looks delicious. Prime vaping stuff right there. Making me drool just seeing the bottle.
