    nicotine hit and flavour - PH level in ejuice, pg & vg

    hi folks - ive had it in the back of my mind to try and understand the way ph levels of ejuices affects the way flavours are tasted and the way nicotine in absorbed by vapers

    have a read below and you will see that tobacco companies raised the ph levels of their products with additives so the nicotine would hit harder - that's what made marlboro such a market leader

    http://www.smoke-free.ca/documents/E...nd%20sales.pdf

    for example cigars have a very high ph and thats why you can absorb the nicotine very easily in the mouth without inhaling - whereas with cigs a lung inhale is needed

    pg has a low ph level and vg has a higher ph level - so that means that juices that are higher in vg will carry the nicotine better and deliver it more efficiently into your system

    im no expert here - but i do know some juices hit me harder than others even tho they are both say 18mg - maybe this is why?

    anyone out there across all this - or have some links or info?

    Hydrochloric acid is the answer. A component of nicotine sprays to increase the PH, which in turn increases the absorption rate.. I would think going that route with our juice wont work, but I dont know.

    MACEUTICAL PARTICULARS
    6.1 LIST OF EXCIPIENTS
    Propylene glycol
    Anhydrous ethanol
    Trometamol
    Poloxamer 407
    Glycerol
    Sodium hydrogen carbonate
    Levomenthol
    Mint flavour
    Cooling flavour
    Sucralose
    Acesulfame potassium
    Hydrochloric acid
    Purified water

    Its well worth reading the attached file. It mentions that overdose could harm a child when ingested, and it advocates duel use for use when smoking is not permitted. It also states these issues are not considered relevant when granting a Marketing Authorization (licence). Also They do not consider it necessary for Pharmaceutical intervention when being sold over the counter, paving the way for the stuff to be sold from supermarkets.

    Sorry for the derailment, but Acid is the answer!!!!


    Couldent upload the file, but here is the link

    But acids lower the pH

    Good point, back to the drawing board!!

    I have read in the past that the acid is used to increase the nicotine uptake in a shorter period. It seems I was wrong!!! Just found this.

    Avoid drinking acidic beverages such as coffee,
    tea, soft drinks, alcohol or citrus juices while
    the gum is being chewed. Reduced pH (in
    -
    creased acidity) decreases the amount of nicotine
    absorbed. Beverages affect absorption in other
    ways too. If you chew and drink at the same
    time, the nicotine will be absorbed through the
    stomach rather than the mouth. This can cause
    heartburn and hiccups. For best results, avoid all
    beverages 15 minutes before and after chewing
    nicotine gum
