Under Australian law, liquid nicotine is classified as a Schedule 7 dangerous poison under the Poison Standard, or Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons 2016 (SUMP). Under state laws, it is illegal to manufacture, sell or supply an S7 poison without a licence or specific authorisation. Which is why all of the juices sold by Vapourholics are 0mg and why we are unable to sell liquid nicotine to our customers (please do not ask).
However, if liquid nicotine is for a therapeutic use, such as to stop smoking or prevent relapse to smoking, there are exemptions which allow its use. If used for a therapeutic purpose, it is classified as a Schedule 4 product and can be imported for personal use under the TGA's Personal Importation Scheme.
Vaping legislation differs from each state and territory and we recommend vapers to be up to date with the laws that govern their state/ territory as well as areas they intend to travel to.

NICOTINE BASE LIQUID PERCENTAGES:
When mixing with concentrated Nicotine solution, it will only make up a percentage of your overall mix. The percentage used will depend upon the final nicotine strength you want to achieve.
All of our juices are sub ohm and it is recommended to keep under 6mg to maintain a good flavour (this however is a personal choice because each persons nicotine requirements differ as does their palate).
CALCULATING HOW MUCH NICOTINE TO ADD TO YOUR E-LIQUID:
Start low and work your way up to your desired strength. If sub ohm vaping it is best for the taste of your EJuice to stay below 6mg.
If using 100mg NICOTINE base to aquire target mg% please see below
6mg = add 0.60ml nic to each 10ml juice
5mg = add 0.50ml nic to each 10ml juice
4mg = add 0.40ml nic to each 10ml juice
3mg = add 0.30ml nic to each 10ml juice
If you are not using 100mg Nicotine base the easiest way to work out how much nicotine should be in your overall mix is to first determine:
- The nicotine strength you want your e-liquid to be. For example 18mg.
- The strength of the concentrated nicotine. For example 72mg.
- And finally the amount of e-liquid you are mixing. For example 10ml.
The way to work out how much of the nicotine to use is to take the nicotine strength you want your e-liquid to be and divide it by the strength of your concentrated nicotine and then times that by the amount of liquid you are making. The result will be the amount in millilitres to add to the overall mix.
USING THE FORMULAE:
(Desired Strength / Concentrated Nicotine Strength) x Bottle size (in milliliters) = Amount needed (in milliliters).
So if you were using a 72mg nicotine concentrate and wanted 10ml of 18mg eliquid, the formula would look like this:
(18/72) x 10 = 2.5ml
If you were using a 48mg nicotine concentrate and wanted 100ml of 3mg eliquid, the formula would look like this:
(3/48) x 100 = 6.25ml
For different e-liquid strengths or quantities just change the relevant parts of the formula.

It is recommended to double check your calculations to ensure they are correct.
Concentrated nicotine can harm or kill children, pets, or even adults. Please inform yourself of how to mitigate the dangers before you try mixing your own e-liquid. Mix at your own risk.
Nicotine can be absorbed by your skin we strongly suggest to use protective one time use gloves when measuring out your nicotine and to avoid nicotine contact with your eyes. Nicotine should be stored in a save place out of reach from children and pets.
Vapourholics will not be held responsible for any injuries arising from incorrect nicotine usage and strongly advises vapers to educate themselves in Nicotine safety and be responsible for the Nicotine storage, dosage and usage.
If you want to be a hundred percent certain about your calculations we suggest that you should double check your results using a couple of different methods.
