    My advice these days is to use WHATEVER nic strength you need to keep you off those disgusting toxic cancerous stinkies. Be it 36mg.. 50mg.. Freebase.. Salts.. Whatever It takes. Remember, it's not the nicotine that is the problematic part - it's those stinkies.

    Obviously, try lower first - then increase if need be. Once you reach a point where you're not reaching for the stink for a while, then you can start slowly lowing it.

    So now that there's no CNT at Nic River, what's the consensus?

    Current choices:
    PurNic
    Smooth Salts
    Hit Salts
    Glass (?) <-- What's this?
    Chemnovatic

    I like smooth salts but I bought them early on due to my respiratory system being SHOT from smoking. I can use freebase now. I have no idea what glass is, I might email them and tell them what you are looking for and/or ask for small samples to try before deciding on a major purchase. Etc.

    Well... this is a Nic River thread. ;)

    I'm looking at the Nic River DIY starter kit which looks much better than the Liquid Barn one. NR includes the nic, 15 vs 10 flavors and 49.99 vs 63.99 (without nic).

    Nic River:
    DIY E-Juice Kits

    Liquid Barn:
    DIY eJuice Starter Kit

    Is the LB CNT nic really worth having to build something from scratch?

    Not Sure? I have read Good Reviews about Chemnovatic. So I ordered a 500ml Bottle to try it out.

    I'll post what I think when it arrives.

    "Glass" from the site:

    Glass Liquid Nicotine is processed in what is known as “tobacco kingdom” in China. It is reasonably priced, USP standards compliant and 99.9% colorless. Glass Liquid Nicotine values quality consistency above all else. As such, they strive to not only make consistent products but promote advancements in nicotine biotechnology.

    ...so it's from China.
    I chuckled at this part: Purity: 100.1% - 100.5%
    I'm leaning against being the guinea pig for this one.

    I wish the reviews on the Nic River site were better. Seems like mostly bot reviews for most stuff.

    Smooth salts are all I've tried from NR and they are fine.

    If you don't want the best don't buy it. If you have a look I have been quite active on this thread. I also bought CNT nic from nicriver a few months back when it was available. I have also posted the CNT 'specs' that I received from nicriver in the nicotine comparisons thread. In saying that I prefer buying nicotine from liquidbarn, especially now that they have CNT.

    I personally use both the PurNic freebase and PurNic Smooth Salts. I have tried several brands from many different places and this was what I liked best. The juice I make is 6% nic (3mg from freebase and 3mg from salts).

    I am almost out of freebase nicotine which I typically buy from vaperstek as it is EU sourced nicotine. Should I give the nic salts a try though from nicotine river? I’ve been out of the loop for a few years lol and I’m trying to catch up but from what I understand nic salts will be delivered through your bloodstream more efficiently?! Am I also correct in assuming that its not going to be so harsh to vape when your vaping really high levels like 50mg and up?

    Please if you all could help me decide

    Option 1: Vaperstek Premium EU Sourced Nicotine 100mg (Freebase)

    Option 2: Nicotine River PurNic 100mg Smooth Nic Salt


    I’m just starting to get into pod systems so should I go with the salts? Do your flavors taste at all different? I primarily use PG based TFA flavoring...


    Thanks

    I don't notice any flavor difference at all. I wouldn't go any higher than 50mg/ml and that high should only be used in pod type systems. If you are planning on going that high then definitely get the salts, I doubt your throat could handle 50mg of freebase.

    I really do appreciate your input. I did ask if the CNT was worth the price difference of the kits.
    I've ordered the Nic River DIY kit for now. But I will certainly be looking at LB for future purchases.

    Thanks for your valuable input.

    Anybody recommend some good flavorings I should buy from NicotineRiver? I have to spend over 50 bucks for the free shipping so not sure what else to buy lol.

    Looking for simple recipes for the Nic salt.

    Thanks!!!

    No Clue what type of Flavors you might like to vape?

    But Pineapple and Strawberry are what I call Essential Mixers from Fruit Recipes.

    As are Caramel, Vanilla, Butterscotch and Waffle are from the Dessert Recipes.
