I hope all my readers had a wonderful July 4th holiday. I had a cook out, had some home-made ice cream and watched fire works. Tonight I'm supposed to have a repeat at my brother's house but I don't know if I will go or not.
Today I thought I would share a tip with vapers and smokers interested in transitioning. This tip will help cut down the cost of vaping even further. Already vaping is far cheaper than smoking. This will just help the cost go even lower.
E-juice or e-liquid is the names given to the nicotine-based liquids that we use in vaping. Some people even call it "oil" but it's not oil. It's a glycerin-based liquid and usually contains a mixture of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin with nicotine and flavorings added. Some blends are pure propylene glycol and some blends are pure vegetable glycerin.
In order to save money one can cut a bottle of e-juice with vegetable glycerin. Vegetable glycerin can be purchased at many stores. Wal Mart carries it in the pharmacy section. To cut the bottles one will need to purchase a bottle of vegetable glycerin. They run about $3. Make sure it has "USP" written on it as this means it's food-grade, the kind used in making e-juice. One will also need one or more bottles of e-juice. These can be purchased from vaping shops or online. One will also need an empty e-juice bottle These can be bought separately online or else one may be able to purchase these from a vape shop. Just ask an employee. I save my empty bottles so I have a stash to use. Starting out I would recommend purchasing the highest level of nicotine e-juice, which is normally 24mg at most vape shops. This way when cut it will give you 2 bottles of 12mg e-juice. If you want you can purchase higher-strength e-juice online. I've seen anywhere from 32mg up to 50mg. So cutting them will give you half that amount. So to cut it one will simply divide the e-juice up in two empty bottles and then top it off with vegetable glycerin and shake. It's just that easy. There is only one downside to using this method. When you cut e-juice you of course will weaken the flavor. So keep that in mind. Otherwise this is a really easy trick that vapers can use to save even more money.
