    I wouldn't use it. It's of a very poor quality. I bought some and threw it all out. I think it is pesticide grade, to be honest. Certainly did the job on my weeds.

    If it is all you have, then use it until you get more, if it isn't all you have you can try to leave the lid off & let it "breathe", this may help reduce the smell.
    I always advise people to order PG based nic, most of the bad smelling or tasting juice is VG based, no matter where it came from, there are fewer bad batches of PG based nic(I can't recall any at present).

    PG based nic will also degrade at a slower rate than VG based nic & can be stored longer.

    If one has ever smelled a fresh nicotine patch, thats what the liquid should smell like, as it is what nicotine smells like. It is not a pleasant smell, one needs to remove the assertion the nice smell equates to quality if mine came with no smell or something smelling so pleasant I would chuck it as it has been messed with.

    Always buy 100% PG, I have some from the same vendor now 4 months old still smells like nicotine as it should and is clear. I have seen RTS Vapes go mid brown in color, they are reputable so I would not be too concerned with discoloration but something is happening chemically to change the pigment which may of course be completely normal given the interaction of the core ingredients.

    If your a 100 percent VG user, I would suspect given the amount of users reporting discoloration with various vendors that VG is the root cause and not the nicotine so order in smaller quantities if it is a concern and get comfortable with a vendor you trust.

    If it was the case the nicotine mixed with VG caused discoloration over time I would be really concerned with what was used to stop it, if there are vendors that sell 100 percent VG with nic and it doesn't change colour. There is something being added to stop this, and done to falsely represent purity.

    Classic current example consumed everyday for most people is Milk, Milk is not white, it is off white straight from the cow reminds me of jaundice, however as white is pure so therefore white milk must be pure, so lets add stuff to milk to make it so. So two elements to most products sold today, marketing and purity. Stuff done to increase marketability is often at the cost of purity, we all underestimate the power of our senses to manipulate our capacity for logic, we may be in the biggest shithole in the world but if bathed in right colors and it smells like fresh coffee paradise is on offer.

    My 100% PG nic from nicvape was slightly brown in the bottle but if i pour it in to a smaller contaner it is clear.
    It may just be tiny tiny particles left over from the natural extraction process.

    Yep that's what it smells like a nicobate patch, and is a very light yellow colour. I was just a bit worried because the last lot I got from another vender was almost older less but that was only 36mg
    Thanks for the info

    If you are looking at it in the bottle, of course it is going to be a different colour than out of the bottle. Mine looks yellow in the bottle but out of it, it is dead clear. It's a white bottle, so of course that is going to happen! The bottle messes with the light getting to the bottle causing the liquid to take on a yellow tinge.

    Lol don't say 'cut' you xxxxxxxxx hahaha. No seriously I've had posts mysteriously disappear when I mention certain words that are more commonly used amongst umm users of other substances.

    Pg base for the win. My exp with that vendor is 50:50
