    Will it be okay do soak a cigarette in VG and then filter and smoke it? I know some people uses tobacco, I am not exactly familiar with the term tobacco so is it consider as cigarette?

    Or is ciggs different from the tobacco they said...

    What are the health complication if i do this?

    If its the nicotine you're after, no. If its for the flavor and all those added chemicals, yes. Better off just smoking the cig, or buying some e-liquid.

    actually yes it's for the nicotine... I am in a very strict country where we could not get our hands on nicotine... thus i am kinda finding alternative... but i guess it's as harmful and ciggs and no point doing that and might as well smoke?

    I think he means making a NET.

    Do you mean soaking the cig tobacco in VG, then straining it and making Ejuice out of it?

    Swell. You're in a country that doesn't allow nicotine, but you can still buy and smoke cigarettes.

    I believe a N.atural E.xtract T.obacco is generally done with whole tobacco leaves or high quality pipe/cigar tobacco soaked in PG (or possibly VG).

    As far as i know, its generally only done to extract a flavor profile from the tobacco so i don't really know how much of the nicotine transfers, if any.

    Probably wouldn't recommend trying it with a cig though, so much other nasty crap in there, not to mention a decent percentage of a cig is not "fresh" tobacco, but other fillers.

    A cigar works well, filter it with a syringe with some cotton in the end. I find PG works easier than VG, just let is sit and steep for a few weeks, no need to heat it, just a quick shake every few days.

    It will give you great flavor but alas very little nicotine.

    Extracting usable nicotine from tobacco requires all kinds of chemicals and science...
