    glycirine or glyserol

    Hi I went to the chemist to buy some VG to dilute my 28 mg nic they only had Glycerol and could not say whether it was veg base . so i went to a health food shop and got some natural Glycerine alcohol free Veg base 100 ml for $4.40 .I assume this is the correct stuff .

    what you want to try and check when getting vg is whether or not it's pharmaceutical grade. if it is, it will say it's glycerol bp or usp. pharmaceutical grade is better than food grade. food grade might contain pharmaceutical grade, but doesn't have to be as pure. gold cross glycerol bp from the chemist is just fine. no idea about the stuff you've linked to. there's not much info on the site. there's a thread somewhere where someone explains the whole bp/usp thing really well and what you should look for on the labels, but i can't find it right now.

    The only thing you need to be sure of is that it's vegetable based. The alternative is beef based and it isn't very nice.

    ^ what mrsgruffy wrote.
    glycerol, glycerin. They are the same thing. Source of different names, I have no idea. Pharmaceutical grade for Australia. Food Grade US. For Australia, I think pharmaceutical grade is equivalent to food grade> Not 100% certain if there is another sub grade because I know only a little about chemicals thrown in food

    EDIT> here you go
    BP : British Pharmacopeia grade
    JP: Japan Pharmacopeia grade
    USP: United States Pharmacopeia grade
    EP / Eur.Ph: European Pharmacopeia grade

    im only going on what ive read here on avf posted by more experienced members than i who have been vaping way longer

    looks like what you've bought is food grade - but its probably just repackaged bp or usp grade vg - it loses the bp or usp grading the moment its repackaged

    I've only a little history before AVF, I'm familiar.

    Avtek got it. If it's listed as for food/consumption, it's good.
    You can buy a large quantity BP/USP without guarantee from soap shops as another member pointed out to me but is not listed USP/BP or for food at point of sale so they don't have keep to same standards. Could be contaminated. Better not to.

    vapingcobra sell VG for the best price I've seen so far. There may be others at around the same price.
