have you tried making salts with benzoic acid yet.
No, only citric.

I wish I had been vaping around the time of the Box Elder days, but only started in 2014 so lost out on that chance. The best of what I consider a *rough* Nic nowadays is ECX, but if anyone knows of something with more TH, please tell me. ECX with FA Flash are my two main ingredients for TH, as everything else I have tried is just too smooth and tame.
Most TH I ever had was a hit straight from my mixing bottle. Hi nic (24mg/ml) and Straight Pg.
I've had some of this around for a while but never got around to trying. What's a good starting %?
I also like a good throat hit. I upped my nicotine from 20 mg to 30 mg and swapped out my usual KGD for Rayon. Really improved my TH and i use less juice.
Try this: Take a small clear bottle half full of 100mg/ml and leave it in a warm window with full sun for about three weeks. Remember to open it often to let in some fresh oxygen. That stuff should have a mule kick to it. I did this completely by accident and it was so strong that I had to throw it out.
I'm in, going to try the Benzoic Acid, just ordered from Amazon, not prime shipping on that item which is a bummer but still not terrible
though now that i think about it if yous had good results with citric and benzoic acids i would have heard a lot more about it by now.....IDK i guess i should check the diy forum
This post from Kurt might interest you, Nicotine Comparisons
I experimented with FA Flash all the way up to 3% in a 50/50 blend at 10mg/ml ECX Nic strength for my Unflavored, and worked down to 1.75% of Flash, where I have been at for close to 2 years now. I worked down because it was making me cough at any higher than 1.75%, but you may be different. Hope this helps.
Has anybody tried Heartland vapes Ultra Premium nicotine? I only vape quite high strength unflavored now and am wondering if getting a better quality nicotine will be worth the extra money. They also have there Nic select a bit cheaper as well as there regular even cheaper. No idea in the differences,i have never used Heartland. I also looked at wizard labs Amerinic but that is even more expensive. I guess i want a nice clean nicotine with a nice throat hit.
It has been a while since i ordered nicotine,i think my last was RTS and they are long gone.Thank you for any help in advance.
I use Heartland's basic 100mg/mL nic as my go-to nic. It is clean, smooth, and everything I want from my nic. I have never felt the need to try either of their "more premium" offerings; so I'm afraid I can't offer a comparison.
Heartland is a great company to do business with. I recommend them confidently. I don't know if they offer samples smaller than 120mL; but it wouldn't hurt to shoot them an e-mail and ask. As accommodating as they have been it wouldn't surprise me in the least.
RTS is now Nicotine Giant, I believe.
Are you still getting along with the Benzoic acid at the ratio above? @dansus
Im still using up the nic benzoate from Alchem. Its 7.2% nic and 5.8% benzoic, the pH is around 4 and i mix it with 7.2% freebase to get it to a more reasonable pH 7.
I find mixing to pH rather than ratios easier and more relevant. Maybe start with 1:2 ratio and see how you get on. (ie 0.5g of benzoic to 1g of nic)
That's what I will start with, thank you
@dansus just so I'm clear let me run this by you, If have 100 ml of 75 mg nicotine base put it in a 120 ml bottle, add 37.5g benzoic , test ph ,adjust to taste, ph @ 7 or 8 ,just seems like a lot of benzoic acid.....
Or is it 3.7? Now that I, I don't sure
