Their "regular juice" is 50/50. He says they use "organic flavorings" which contain a very tiny amount of PG...(?) Can organic flavor additives be purchased for DIY? Is he fibbing?Undecided

Not sure if "organic" would have a lot to do with it, but I have seen VG flavorings for sale as well as VG nic so a 100% VG juice is possible for sure.

After checking around because I thought I had seen VG nic I can no longer find it, might have just dreamed it Smile, so I guess with no nic it could be done. There does seem to be a lot of talk of it being false. Or maybe I can't find it because I'm at work and they block EVERYTHING!!! Sad

I use VG-based nicotine from NicVape. 

Though to be technical, if there's anything at all in it besides VG, it's technically not 100% VG. The nicotine and the flavoring chemicals themselves aren't VG, even if they're suspended in a VG base solution. 

But that's just splitting hairs. If you had VG-based flavoring and VG-based nicotine, you'd be close enough to call it 100% VG.

Is there VG based flavoring available for DIY?
To their credit, they only charge like $3 more for 30ml of the "so called" organic juice.

I'm glad you brought this up, I'm going to invest in making my own juice next month and it's nice to know you can go all VG if you want to.

Imho it's not worth it to go 100% VG. PG carries flavor way better, and the clouds made from pure VG aren't noticeably bigger than 80% VG. Plus anything over 70% VG doesn't work well in tanks, only for dripping. The only reason I can think of to use only VG is if you're allergic to PG, but PG allergies are rare.
