    I'm not sure off hand of their prices nor can I contest to their quality personally. I just know that they carry it because I emailed them when I didn't see it on their website.

    Cool! Thanks! Will email them tomorrow for pricing and sourcing.

    You in NFLD? I lived in Mount Pearl for "tree" years when I was a kid.

    Have you or anybody else here ordered Nic from both TBV. and diy-ejuice? Price is a secondary consideration to me, quality being the primary.

    +1 on that! I factor in pricing only when company A and company B have the exact same product for different prices. When it comes to Nic, Im not overly picky but I dont like cloudy nic with overly peppery taste.

    Oh cool! I wouldnt be able to tell you exactly where I lived but I went to St Peters elementary and was close enough to walk there but it meant walking up a huge hill that passed by St Peters junior high.

    Yup I bought some from TBV and it's not any different from DIY except DIY's is $20 cheaper (looking at the 240ml size). I can't remember if it was NicSelect that I got from DIY but I believe it was (I don't have the original label anymore and it was a while ago now and I've bought nic other places too).

    Now mind you I don't know what current prices are at DIY as I haven't bought any since last year. When my next nic purchase comes up I'll be shopping around again. I want quality and a good price but I'm not will to sacrifice the quality in favour of cheap. I've had some bad nic in the past and it ruins my mixes - not worth it.

    Right now I'm considering ordering several liters in the US and having it shipped into Buffalo or Niagara Falls NY then bring it over myself. Sooooo much cheaper in the US.

    I couldn't agree more. The cross border thing is not an option for me, geographically.

    An extended research binge ( thanks for the skills Fravia. RIP ) a while ago produced: http://www.bgpgroup.biz/product/nicotine-base-uspep/

    Downloaded their data sheets. Looks like fantastic Nic. Probably where all the Nic we buy originates from, as well as all the Nic big pharma use in their patches, and gum.

    I wonder if they will provide samples, and what the minimum size order is. A 45 gallon drum equates to 205 liters.Group buy anyone?

    Edit. Forgot to mention the concentration of the above, is 1000Mg/Ml. So, a 45 gallon drum would yield 2050 liters of 100Mg/Ml base.

    Well...that's quite the large amount of nic base!

    Yikes! You'd need a clean room and hazmat suits to process that stuff into a usable dilution. And, you'd need about 500 people on that group buy :p

    Ha! one of those Walmart DIY back yard swimming pools and a couple of oars would do it :D I wonder if Red Greene vapes....

    You would need a bunch of people, or a small bunch, and a few commercial customers. Drawing a half liter at a time would be manageable. A walk in cooler would store the rest. Ambitious, but not overly practical in my apartment. lololol

    Red Green a.k.a. Steve Smith would be down with that undoubtedly. :giggle:

    He's a cool guy - I once ran into him coming out of a liquor store in Hamilton as I was going in. In real life he's just like Red Green, except without the plaid.

    fellow canadian checkin in... not new to VU but definitely new to diy... i've been at it for a solid 2 months now, picking up 100% of my supplies from dashvapes (flavour concentrates, VG, PG, nic). Prices are definitely reasonable and they do a point system which is nice (the more you buy the more you collect... i was able to pick collect enough points to buy an odis o-genny with points). The only downside to dashvapes is they are limited to flavour concentrates (missing stuff like custards and bavarian cream). This forum is an awesome place to find info on basically anything i need to know about vaping. Thanks VU

    Welcome aboard! Im relatively new to this thread as well but not new to either vaping or DIY! Have a look at diy-ejuice in Richmond BC. They have great selection and prices...and as you may have noticed within this thread...I just found out they sell nic as well, if you email them they will let you know about pricing and availability. :D

    Yeah lack of selection here in Canada sucks. I just placed an order with Inawera on the weekend and I'm pleasantly surprised how much cheaper it was to buy direct from them. Shipping is cheaper than you might expect too.

    None that I know of but I have noticed that sometimes on the last day of the month they run a flash sale for 15% off (I guess when they have a slow month). Today is May 1st :( I don't know if they had a sale yesterday - I didn't check.

    Maybe (just maybe) they might run a sale on the Victoria Day weekend. The Broke Vaper seems to have more regular sales than DIY so they're worth watching too.

    Glad to be onboard. I'm big on flavor chasing and am a fan of Cotton Bacon. Here's a local resource for 'cotton bacon' ...:D
    [​IMG]
    Its medical grade. Tried it on multiple builds and juices ... no difference and waaay cheaper. Whenever, I test a new recipe or flavour, I rewick to get the pure flavour. That bag will probably outlive me.

    Oh well.... sorry Broke Vaper. Just chatted with DIY in BC and they said they would match that offer. I'll shop with them just due to the better flavour selection there. There's a few things I want that the BV doesn't have.

    If anyone else wants the discount from DIY I would suggest you contact them first (like I did).

    Yeah I noticed that it was only the regular RF flavours on sale. Too bad! The Broke Vaper has lots of sales though so I'll just bide my time and wait. Not like I don't have anything to work with here.

    No boiling or other types of cleaning needed for these?

    No. No need to. none of the bleach / wet T-shirt taste, it is fantastic cotton.
