What is Nicotine?
Nicotine is a substance obtained from tobacco plants or produced synthetically. It is often inhaled through the lungs and is very addictive. Its addictive nature is the result of mimicking and stimulating a natural brain chemical, acetylcholine which causes a stimulant effect.
How to DIY your own Juice
What you need:
- Any e-liquid
- Unflavoured nicotine
- Measuring syringe (preferably 1mL capacity)
- Choose nicotine amount.
This varies on personal preference, however it is highly recommended to start off with a low amount.
The general amounts include: 3, 6 or 9mg and can be found below.
Specific measurements can be calculated here.
- Remove e-liquid bottle nozzle.
Depending on the e-liquid bottle, a knife may be needed to pry the nozzle off. Certain e-liquids use pipettes instead of nozzles. If that’s the case, skip this step.
Please take care during this step to avoid any injuries and spillage.
- Pour out a small amount of e-liquid.
Using the measuring syringe, pour out a small amount of liquid, equivalent to the amount of nicotine added. This
will avoid overfilling the bottle, causing the nicotine to not be mixed properly.
This does not have to be precise.
- Add the nicotine to the e-liquid and secure the nozzle back on.
Make sure the nozzle is secured properly to avoid spillage.
- Mix well
