    BIG Newbie Mistake....Please help me clarify

    Hi All,

    I think I have made a big mistake with my first order to greenhouse one....in fact I am pretty sure of it!

    I placed the order about 5 weeks ago and I dont remember exactly what I had in it and for some reason the GH1 site is telling me my email address is not registered so I can't go back and see what was on it.

    My problem is I thought I would buy some unflavoured PG and VG, and I thought I bought a 30ml bottle of each. I haven't used the PG but when I have been mixing my normal 100% PG with 100% PG doublers I have added a "squirt" of the VG....that's just how precise my mixing has been!

    So today I took a close look at the VG bottle and it has 2 little clear stickers on it, 1 says VG and the other says 60mg!! So I pretty much know the answer already 😳 but I am pretty sure I have bought 60mg unflavoured nic in 100% PG and 100% VG!!!!!

    Is there any other possible explanation for this that anyone can suggest? Pretty dumb I know but it was my first order.

    Umm.

    I know its not safe but I suppose I would dilute it down to like 10-20mg using other PG and VG and dab a tiny bit (not a full drop just tiny bit) on your finger and see if you can taste the nic lol. (Ive done this many times)

    DON'T USE THAT METHOD IF ITS 60MG STRAIGHT.

    Other than that suppose you could buy a testing kit.

    Dilute it with distilled water man up and give it the taste test :P

    Nicotine testing kits seem hard to come by and they seem to be expensive.

    Unless you buy a testing kit your only option is to treat the label as good and mix accordingly. If you want to you could mix equal parts VG and PG with the labeled 60mg VG and PG giving you four 30ml bottles of 30mg VG and PG. Then you can mix as you would normally mix with 30mg base juice. If the juice is actually 30mg to start with the worst that will happen is you have halved your intake of nicotine.

    Another test is to mix up a few mls of half supposedly 60mg with equal amount of VG or PG and try a trial vape. If you get a very big throat hit and fairly harsh your trial mix is 30mg and therefore the labels are correct. In that case when you mix future ejuices make sure you use 60mg as the base starting point in calculations of juice. When using 60mg you will have to be a bit more precise when mixing and take precautions about spilling it on your skin.

    It will be 60mg nic base. Just treat it as such.

    totally agree with RC, no need for a test kit, treat it as 60mg nic.

    And this is why I am happy I have a nic test kit.

    GH1 should have sent you an email when you ordered, go back through your emails & see if you have it.

    I too would treat the stuff you have as 60mg/ml, if you want to be sure my nic test kit is sitting next to me feeling neglected, bring some around(since you are in Perth) & we can test it.
