    Hey guys I want to make sure I am figuring this right. Because I have a sensitivity to PG over 30%.

    My extracts are PG based so if I have a pre-mixed base of 70vg/30pg and I use 10% flavoring,
    Since the extracts are PG based does that mean my mix becomes 60vg/40pg ?
    I do notice I get to coughing if I go too high on the extracts.

    I also have a pre-mixed 100vg with 3mg NIC and I'm assuming the NIC is VG based since it's going into a 100%vg base but who knows. If I use the 100% vg base and put 10% flavor I'm thinking that I now have a 90vg/10pg.
    I do not cough or get a sore throat when I use the 100%vg with PG extracts. I guess I need to cut the flavors on the 70/30 base.

    I think for my second order of base I'm going to get 100% VG at 0mg NIC and then add my PG and my VG based NIC to it so I can control how much PG I am getting. I do like some PG and if it's 30% I have no issues.

    Just making sure I am figuring this out correctly.

    Yep, you are correct. And also about your 100% VG w/3mg -- nicotine can be in VG as well as in PG.

    Thanks for the confirmation Andria. Yeah I knew the NIC could have been in either but was assuming if it's 100%vg they would have made it VG based but then again you know what happens when we Assume !! :)- Thanks for the reply. - Michael
