    Calculation for a nic reduction

    I was just wondering how I would go about reducing the nic in a couple of my juices, I have a few at 18 mg and they blow my head off and a couple at 12 mg. most of my other juices are around 6 mg but I was chain vaping so I thought higher was better for me but I reckon somewhere in the middle between 12 and 6 mg will be where I want to be.
    The 18 mg juices are simple obviously if I have 10 ml of juice ill cut it with another 10 ml of VG/pg but with the 12 mg juice how would I get that to around 8 or 9 mg?

    I'm sure it's quite obvious but I've got a mental block big time on this help...
    With the 12 mg juices I have extra flavour shots in them so I'm not overly worried about the muting of flavour the 18 mg on the other hand I know will be quite tasteless after being cut down.

    It's an expensive way but what I did with my 6mg juices is order the same ones again in 12mg, then I mixed them half/half to get 9mg.

    Did the same with the 18mg, which were too strong. Got the same juices in 12mg and mixed it half/half with the 18mg to get 15mg.

    But that might not be helpful for you...?

    5ml of Pg/Vg in 10ml of 12mg juice will reduce it to 8mg.

    I use the nic combine app from the tools in this program. It's great for all mixing tasks IMO.

    Yup Davee is on the money.

    The "Ejuice me up" calculator has a "Nic combine" option in the tools menu.

    I can live with the 6 mg juice even though I have quite a bit of it but yeah the others are just not hitting that sweet spot, and thanks Dave I knew it would be quite a simple thing but I could wrap my head around it

    Not directly... But if you open the calculator then click "tools" in the top left corner, then "Nic Combine" a new box will open.

    Enter the mg of nic you have, the percentage of VG/PG, and the quantity then hit calculate.
    If the result isn't what you want just adjust the ML up or down accordingly until you have the result you want.

    I had no idea eJuiceMeUp had that option. That makes things so much easier! Thanks.

    If only people understood the worth of the humble fraction, and how to do simple arithmetic with it, then this would always be easy

    Does this dilute the flavour? I was struggling on my 12mg to feel satisfied, went up to 24mg and it is just harsh, harsh, harsh...
