    We urge EXTREME care when handling pure nicotine, use with care, this cannot be done around children or animals and NOT BY PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT VERSED ON WHAT THEY ARE DOING, if any of these things are factors with you, do not attempt to handle pure NICOTINE.


    We'd also like to add, that we can only caution people about the dangers and risks of handling and working with pure Nicotine and hope the experienced help the people who are not, learn the correct methods of diluting, handling and storage of it. Vape on and BE SAFE!!!

    Also be sure to know fractions or have a reliable Eliquid calculator and know how to use it.

    If you use 2.4% or 24 mg/ml Eliquid and You accidentally make .24% or 2.4 mg/ml liquid it's just a mistake,
    Accidentally making 24% or 240 mg/ml Eliquid may be a DEADLY mistake!

    Know the concentration of what you're buying.

    100mg or less - follow common (crucial) safety instructions carefully. This is what the vast majority of DIY'ers use. Welcome to the family.

    990+mg aka PURE NICOTINE - Fume hood, splash guard, chem apron, gloves etc. This is what the nic base most vapers use IS MADE FROM, and detailed safety advice on handling it is scarce, for better or worse. Either way, do it right - for yourself, those in close proximity to you, and the future of the vaping community. "Just being extra careful" while following instructions for 100mg nic is not enough - this should be left to professionals, those advised by professionals, or those with relevant, professional experience handling chemicals of this level of toxicity.

    Be prepared and aware BEFORE you pop the cap of your nic, whatever concentration.
