Freebase should allways be clear. I've had it stored in my freezer since the great nicotine panic of 2017 and it's still flavourless and clear.

Can't say the same for the newer bottles of 72mg nicotine salt I've bought but I've allways been told the salicylic or benzoate added causes this.

Overvaper, interesting point.

Things you say mean that all the people who make their nicotine stock from the nicotine they buy, say at Hiliq, and work hard to make a perfect seal with their bottles are working for nothing...?

Do you talk as a chemist?

Hello eveyoneI got a PG nicotine base from HiLiQ, but it’s not totally clear, it has a very light brown colour.How long does nicotine base still valid to be used?According to HiLiQ 1 year sealed - 8 months openedIs that correct ?

It all depends on how it is stored and how much you trust the vendors batch dates.

Freshly made Nicotine can be good for 3 years or more in the freezer, 1 to 2 years in a fridge.

Nicotine can be light brown but also a light pinkish colour or even almost clear.

A lot depends on how much you trust the vendor and to a certain extent how much you pay for it.

I always buy mine from a vendor who buys direct from a UK manufacturer and pay a little more for peace of mind as they post the batch certificates and analysis by an independant laboratory that relates to the nic they send you.



Any chance I could get a link ? Shopping around for salts right now

Interesting post. Where do you guys get your nic from ? How does HILIQ declare the nic (customs issue) ?

Thx

To answer the question of the post, My nic (purchased from a local store in my city) is also light Brown. No issues so far.

Hiliq declare just VG, or PG. If your packet is caught by the customs Santa Claus, you're in trouble.
Molchi said recently in this thread:
"About a year ago we had some people in an german forum which had serious trouble for importing stuff from hiliq, since the german customs knew what would be in there"

So, it may depends on where you live, or if your customs employ hippies or nicotine dogs...

Yes indeed, I've used these guys before myself. They're very good.

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

My nic botlle is also brown, very brown. And the throat hit is always the real thing.

The bottle should not be translucent, but rather vitro negro. Nic is unstable under visible spectrum as well.
The answer to 1984 is 1973 § Panasonic or Samsung - that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer.
