0mg Juice + Nicotine base = Do I need to steep?
I've been working my way down on nicotine levels gradually since I started vaping and am happy to say I've finally hit 3 mg, but I intend to go lower and eventually off the nic for good. I'm going to be mixing 1 ml of 24 mg base with about 14 ml of 30 PG/70 VG juice from Gremlin at a time. My plan is to taper off the nicotine from there. Am I going to need to steep to let the nicotine mingle first or can I just mix and go?

Hi dn38416.1979 Welcome to TVF. If its one flavour I generally mix and go with 6mg nic. A combination of flavours may benefit from steeping but it's down to individual taste really. Custards will need more steeping there are a few members on here who use them that can give more details and I'm sure they will be along soon. Enjoy your visits here it's a wonderful friendly forum with lots of people willing to help... Good

Welcome to our community! 

Steeping is a complex chemical process that's required for certain flavours to blend fully.. As a general rule, Nic base without additional flavouring would not need any steeping prior to vaping, so it should literally be Mix 'n Go Good2

Good luck on cutting down the nic.. most of us find we manage to cut right down fairly easily. Drinks

Hi and welcome dn38416.1979


It's good to have you here.


It really depends on the flavour - I have one that is good to go straight away with 80% VG but with 50:50 PG:VG mixes needs to be steeped for six months before it stops tasting "chemical"


As a result I don't throw out "failed" mixes for a very long time. When I'm bored with whatever I'm using, I'll look behind the microwave and see what might work.


The presence or absence of nicotine should make very little difference though some cheap nic does tend to be rather "peppery". Since you are adding to a flavour that works for you - just shake it and go.
