Best used between 20mg - 45mg when mixing

Nicotine Rivers proprietary FDA GRAS Nicotine Salt solution was designed to eliminate the common traits of our stock solution. This product...
so is a solid you add to your juice when mixing or is t a solution? I am so confused. Could someone give me the idiots guide to nicotine salts
I keep trying to buy some salts from them but they are never in stock..so I just buy salts from Nude Nicotine....I find Nic Rivers website unhelpfull.
what exactly are nic salts?
go onto Nude NIcotine they have a write up about them basiclly people use them becuase they allow you to vape high levels of nicotine,without the harshness that high nic huice deliver..you are avble to vape 20, 30, 40, even 50 mg of nic and it tastes smooth.also it allow the flavors to shine through in high nic level juices.
WTF 50mg nic in your vape
I would assume this is for tootlepuffers and not subohmers
yeah....it's the stuff that the use in JUUL e-cigs I think there juice is 54mg....the thing is that it so smooth you could probablly sub ohm it at 24 mg.............and then fall down LOL
well i read nude nicotine site
and i got a totally different take on it
its a different way of making a nic solution that may have color that you would not see in regular nic. and because of the way that this is made you can make it smooth or have more throat hit. I also believe it implies that it will oxidize slower. It works at any nic level and the smooth is super super smooth. and costs as much as vaperstek premium nic
I have NN smooth nic salt, it's really good. The throat hit was a little to much, but good if you want a good throat hit.
I've tried the smooth and the signature..I wanna try the HIT..I don't mind a throat hit, what I don't like is peppery nic.
I have to say I have progressed alot since this post! Click to enlarge photo ( too big for full size)

wow the price on vt has sure dropped since i bought a liter
I know what you mean! I can remember paying $125.
2-3 Weeks ago when I looked it was $85 !
"When I was having that alphabet soup, I never thought that it would pay off."- Vanna White
$125?? I think I paid 135 plus shipping
The last time was a long while back and remember buying 2 liters. That got me free shipping and there was also a "something" % off sale.
Although I consider myself a cheap basta$d and mix at 18mg nic., when I figured out what my daily cost was of using cheaper harsher nic. or something like VT, paying up was not too painful at all. (around .21 a day)
"I'd love to sell out completely. It's just that nobody has been willing to buy."- John Waters
Could be worse. I live in New Zealand and my13 bottles of flavouring cost $68usd at the cheapest rate. Worth it tho, coz nz flavours suck!
Much worth it to wait till you sell enough to spend 100$ or more
I can only imagine! I know how we whine and cry about pending regulations and such here, but I try to keep my chin up when I read about you and so many others in several countries that have a rough time getting even the minimal supplies to do this.
(My daughter spent nearly four months in/around Christchurch in 2012 as part of a study abroad program in college. She absolutely loved it there.. )
Any St Patrick'sday sales or codes for nicriver??

I wish I could give a review of the nic from NR. Alas, they haven't even sent my order. Let alone the new ground only shipping issue.
I ordered on sat (yes I am full aware of holiday weekend) looking for a new vendor. The nic got good reviews so I figured I'd give it a go. Ill wait tilI Mon or even Tuesday to be shipped too. Im a patient guy.
Maybe im just used to my old vendor. Even though the selection is smaller with them i received my order 2 days later if not next day.
Here we are on Thursday and still haven't even shipped. They've taken my money. But they apparently have pigeons packing the orders (maybe swallows...)
I will not be ordering from them again. Waste of time and money. I don't care how good the selection, pricing or flavors are... If you don't receive any product its still a zero.
Can anyone recommend a responsible decent supplier for my next order?
Shipping is no longer their strong suit, I'm afraid. I've waited up towards two weeks on previous orders myself, only to have them arrived beaten and battered by FedEx.
ECigExpress carries the same nicotine as NR (NicSelect). As far as ECX ship time - I have a newly delivered package from them on my desk right now that was ordered a mere two days ago. Superb ship time and their customer service is excellent. I've dealt with them for over two years now.
Another up and coming flavor vendor that I've used a lot lately is The Flavor Place (www.flavorplace.com) They don't carry nicotine (yet) but their flavor pricing is awesome and ship time even better. Worth checking out for sure.
I can also highly recommend ChemNic for nicotine. Prices are very good, nic quality is excellent (I have a freezer full), and customer service is awesome.
I agree, there are way too many choices to have to settle for second rate service.
That's who got my last two orders.... great service and I have bought some of there house flavors for when I don't have time to mix up my own.
Thanks. I will give ECX a go next time I order.
I paid 48$ with shipping for 250ml/48mg PG based nicotine based on your hyped reviews here, and all i can do now with it is trow it in trash, it is without color, but it smells really bad and strong, peppery, almost burnt my nose when inhaling for few seconds, just AWFUL, cant imagine anyone would want to vape that.....
There is no single bad comment for this nicotine, so just wanted to warn next possible buyers.
You need to contact Nicotine River. They'll make it right.
Did this nic. spend a few days in transit in hot summertime temps?
Was it warm when you popped the cap?
it was mild warm, here in Croatia is close to 40celsius (104 Fahrenheit), maybe thats the reason, i instantly received refund but not for shipping which is more expensive then product so lost 30$ .... I am thinking maybe to use this with some heavy tobacco aromas which i dont really like... Hope i cant get poisoned or something if it really is rotten...
It won't poison you, but it will likely taste harsh. I never order nicotine during hot summer months as our heat index goes up over 100 degrees. And I certainly don't trust the USPS not to leave it sitting in a nice, hot truck for a couple of days.
There's a fair chance that if you let it cool to normal room temperature and take off the cap for 10 minutes or so ...well that should disperse much of the nasty things you first smelled. You have little to lose.
I'm not saying the nic. is going to be clean in all regards. Heck, I've never tried their nic. so that might not be possible...at all. It should be better than you first sampled though.
keep it in the freezer
use it to dilute other nic
like 1:10 ratio
make other nic stretch
Just out of curiosity, have you ever smelled plain nicotine in this strength and in PG before?
Thanks for all comments, it is a bit better when it cooled down, now i have also opened cap as RonJS mentioned, so will see...
But my next order will definitely be in winter months like Teresa P said.
My last nicotine was 99mg from Mixnmatcheliquids (Chinese vendor), it did have some smell but not near that strong or nasty, that was the reason i ordered from Nic river thinking it would be clean, without any smell, smoother and so on, and then disappointment, but i learned something!
Pure nicotine does indeed have an aroma that resembles burnt tobacco, only faint. That's normal. The harsh smell you've described is from the heat it's been subjected to during delivery. As Ron said, some of that will tone down at room temperature. It also smells more strongly in collective amounts. The much smaller amount you'll use making a bottle of juice will likely not be noticed.
As far as color, I also always thought nicotine had to be clear to be "clean," but that isn't true either. A slight yellowish tint is normal and any solution that is clear like water and remains that way has been chemically treated to be that way. That doesn't mean it's bad, it's just a treatment process, I'm guessing for the purpose of sales. Most people think clear is better. Not necessarily true.
I have a question about adding nic salts to 80/20 0mg juice. Idk if this is the right place to ask this but, I ordered nic salts from nicotine river so I'll give it a shot. How much 100mg pg nic salts do I add to 30ml of 80/20 0mg juice to get 50mg 30ml(or so)bottle of juice? (For my low wattage aspire breeze)

You've probably figured this out already...I've only used NicRiver nic salts and it translates to the exact same quantity as their basic nic. So, if I normally put in 2 ml of regular nic I would then put in the same quantity of nic salt(2 ml). Note...I used the same strength-100 mg. The difference isn't in the end product...the difference is in the extraction process. Prob not telling you anything you haven't already figured out. Thought I'd mention it regardless, for the next curious person
Yes. Just recently placed an order on 12/14 (Thursday) @10:59, confirmed order @12:59, got tacking number @ 6:12 it shipped and arrived on Monday 12/18. Cant complain and would order from them again. I also did a short write up comparing the Nicotine Salts.
