suggestions on how to fix a juice
Hi there,

I have (at least) two juices that need repair. I purchased them before knowing enough about things and I really do not want them to go to waste if there's a fix for them.

Example: I have a 100% VG raspberry flavor that I want to make more like 50 to 60% PG. I do not have straight PG juice but willing to buy it if someone would share a reputable website to get it from? Then I would imagine it's a matter of putting these two things into a small bottle in the correct ratio or as close as I can get? 

Any tips on successful merging Smile Am I missing anything?

Thanks!
Deb

You're right, but adding more base will weaken the flavor and lower the nicotine strength.

Not worried about nicotine, I use zero. I thought of flavor enhancers but they're the consistency of water from what I've seen so I don't want to wind up with liquid that's too thin and ruin coils. 

Is it best to just cut my losses and toss them out?

Flavor enhancers are typically blended in PG, as are most concentrates. PG is thin, VG is pretty thick.

If you can get a bottle of 50/50, combine them together. How big are the bottles? Even if they are not the same flavor experiment mixing them. I would think any other berry would be a good match.

I'm going to buy some, just haven't had time to shop. Hope to do that today, thank you!

HeartlandVapes.com is my go to place. Amazon can source you straight VG and PG as well. As the Tread man says, mixing a premade juice is an alternative as well. Just be advised that if it is not the same juice, the flavor will change.

RE: suggestions on how to fix a juice
A note on "100% VG juices". There are basically none, unless you specifically source a juice that uses only the VG as the base, dilutes their nic in VG, and sources concentrates that are made with VG as well. That is not common since VG does not play as well with other chemicals as PG does.

Most of what people think of as 100% VG juices are actually just what is known as Max VG. Since 99.9% of all flavorings and nicotine are made using PG as the solvent, the best you can do is simply use 100% VG as the base after mixing the flavors and the nic first. This is why you see a "Max VG" option but not a 100% VG option when juice shopping.

Of course, simply vaping 100% VG without nic or flavorings nets you 100% VG too.

And you'll need to up the flavour with very high VG juices. VG doesn't carry flavour as well as PG.

Unless there is a sensitivity to PG then 100% VG just isn't worth the effort.

And CG is a royal PITA to handle, especially in bulk.
