    For the Orion, I pretty much double strength whatever I’m using. And the flavor is still not as good as the Nord(for me). Also, keep your recipes simple. Fruity is best or a simple tobacco. Desserts/creams don’t translate as well.

    For the Orion Go pods I’ve been using @wllmc Juicy Strawberry Cheesecake recipe posted here on VU with 6mg nic instead of my usual 3mg. I used that juice cuz I’m so familiar with it. So I could tell if the Orion Go pods were a good flavor carrier. I’ve found once the pod broke in, only took 1/2 pod full it’s plenty tasty to me.

    I only use the pod when I go out. Which isn’t much, especially lately lol! But I’m still on my 1st pod.

    I think that’s my issue. Just waiting for the pods to break in. I’m getting some decent flavor out of it as I keep going.

    Do you thin your cotton in there or anything or just leave it as is?

    I was going to thin the cotton if necessary but it’s been fine after the break in.

    I mixed up a blue raspberry taffy for my orion go and a vta carrot cake for it. The carrot cake is excellent.

    VTA Carrot Cake - 13%
    WF Buttercream frosting - 3%

    That simple. Pretty darn good. Also for anyone who owns an orion go I was doing a little looking around and check out the Odis Crux, it's an rba for the orion that should be coming out very soon.

    I’ll keep my eyes out. It looks awesome and would be a game changer. I’m liking this thing more and more as I keep using it. I got some salts In and made some 10mg salt juice 50/50 and I didn’t think it would be that strong lol. I felt a buzz pretty quick.

    I have a bottle of juice that I mixed last year that is 50/50, 12 mg, have been meaning to take it to work to vape in a Kabuki clone. Might do that tomorrow. If I do, I might be buzzing right along with you, or coughing my head off, depending... :)

    Thank you!

    Did you see the new Smoant Positano (I think I spelt it wrong) pod. You can buy a rba for the pod. But of course since we have the Orion Go the Odis design one would be great.

    I did see it. I might check it out. Idk. I need to figure out if I actually like pods as more than a last resort type of vape before I go crazy.

    True, I only got mine cuz my friend @SnapDragon NY loved hers for out & about. Can’t beat it for its tiny size. One is more than enough for me. I was really hesitant to buy the Orion Go because of the need to buy pods but if someone comes out with a rba for it, it would be great! And my pod has been lastly a real long time, since I don’t go out all that much lol! Especially lately.

    I love my Orion Go (dna)- it is so tiny and can slip into a pocket easily and vapes great. The pods last a long time for me as well- I have used one pod for months, again just my out and about mod, so no heavy use on it for me. I bought mine when they 1st came out last September- no problems with mine.
    I bought my hubby the Orion Q( non dna) a few months ago on a great sale- I think XMas time and he loves that one, works great and the pods are long lasting for him as well ! Simple, small and easy to use and absolutely no leaking.
    I use the SauceLA flavor 1922 a fruit punch koolada- tastes great in the Orion.

    Hubby uses just plain Grape in his and it tastes fine too.

    You use 70/30 mix juice in there? I have been making 50/50 because I figured I needed to.

    image.jpg Posted this on the Vape Mail thread, but it bears repeating :inlove:

    OMG! @wildgypsy70 is the sweetest of all! She offered to send me “Gallagher’s Ice Pop” recipe mixed as I posted on the Daily Mixing thread that I was dying to mix it but since I’m still recovering from surgery I’ll have to wait.

    But but but she also sent “Nickbrosia Custard” something else she knew I wanted to mix. You should’ve seen my happy face! It was a total surprise!

    The biggest hug to you! :hug:You are simply the kindest, most thoughtful person! :blowkiss: Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart :inlove::inlove::inlove:

    If a finger taste test is any indication Nickbrosia Custard is spectacular too!

    @wildgypsy70 you have no idea what a wonderful surprise it was! :blowkiss:

    You have no idea how touched I am! :inlove::inlove::inlove:

    And to tell you the truth I was not feeling any of my current favs for whatever reason didn’t quite taste the same. So your kindness is refreshing (Gallagher’s Ice Pop) no pun (yes pun) intended :D

    Looking at around 12 inches of rain in under 2 weeks here.
    already up to 8 inches of rain at my house and expecting several more days of rain.
    This since last Thursday.

    if it keeps it up might start thinking about rice paddies?

    Artemis, hi :hug: And hello to everyone!

    I just saw this advert in my e-mail and have never tried Nicotine River Flavors. I've always been bad at searching this forum for specific results, so I am predictably asking for advice on where I might find some Nic River flavor reviews around here. Or... if anyone has any special thoughts about particular flavors, I'm all ears.
    I'm back from a vape-cation of over a year and am vaping and trying to get back into mixing again. I still have all my old flavors (mostly FA, TFA, FW - in that order), but am looking for a little new inspiration.

    Any advice appreciated!

    The only ones I've tried are NR condensed milk, Fuji apple, and Paradiso. The Fuji fades pretty bad, but from what I've read, that isn't unusual for Fuji apple flavors. The other two flavors are good. I'd probably try more of them.

    Hi! I have never tried NR own brand. I'm making up a order for later tonight. I'm going to try a few purilum flavors. I'm trying to figure out if their pg/vg is good. I'll have to do a google search on that aspect.

    Thank you! I'll probably give them a go since I'm on my last liters of pg/vg. (Before it gets too warm to ship).

    I've always bought from essential depot and found them fine--though I have no pt. of comparison for PG and VG. Is there any advantage in your opinion to ordering NR? Maybe its less pricey and/or equal-to-better quality?
    What has attracted me to essential depot is the ease of ordering but also, must admit, the sale prices. Also, once they sent me a gallon each of PG and VG and both were damaged in transit. They replaced both giant bottles no questions asked. I'll never forget that.

    I really ended up with NR bases by accident. I was ordering a bunch of supplies from eliquid.com back when they still carried mixing stuff. NR just happened to be the brand they sold. I liked it and didn’t see a need to change anything. It won’t be long though before I will have to order more from somewhere. Most likely I will stick with the one I know that I like.
