    I recently bought the original caliburn to get away from alt. As pods are getting expensive. I used 4% (or 40mg Nic salt)

    I bought 2 x 100 ml 3mg freebase liquids but there is absolutely no hit.

    I am wanting the same effect as the alt. pods so just wondering what to buy to mix with the 3mg liquids to get a more satisfying hit.

    Thank you :)

    Hi and welcome,
    In pod devices, anything less than 25mg/ml freebase has NO throat hit, in my experience.
    IMO, You need more nicotine.
    Depending on where you are, you may have a few or many options.

    Please post your location.

    An ECF member who's a close friend gets really good throat hit even with her pod devices. She makes her DIY eliquids at a 70PG/30VG ratio and has slowly reduced her nic from 24mg to 15mg, while still getting the throat hit she's gotta have. She says the 70PG/30VG ratio definitely helps her achieve that, even at 15mg. Everyone's different though, so what works for her...might not work for others.

    You jumped from 40mg to 3mg. and wonder why you don't get the TH you were used to. Do tell.

    It's an easy enough mistake. Many people don't realize that pure nicotine is 1000 mg/ml, so you have to multiply the percentage concentration by 10 to get mg/ml.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    The only way to improve the nic hit on the 2 bottles you've bought is to increase the nicotine percentage by adding additional nicotine.

    Because of the lower wattage and the pod makeup on some pod devices, higher strength nicotine liquids are needed to get a goog enough throat hit.

    I would suggest purchasing some high nicotine base and using a Nicotine Shot Calculator to increase the percentage to around 20mg to start with.
