I see that Nic River is dropping some Purilum flavors which includes some I use regularly. Does any DIY vendor sell the Purilum line? I did a search and found a Canadian seller but they also don’t have what I want. Purilum Ambrosia is the main one which is pretty much an every day vape for me.
Haven’t really seen Purilum or Flavor Revolution either one around the normal places.
That’s also part of why I didn’t dive too deeply into them. It always makes me nervous when I can only get something at one place… My luck has all too frequently been “fall in love” with something, only to have it quickly become NLA. /sigh
NR are the Nth American Distributor of Purilum and everyone gets supply from them . I did get a quote to buy direct but the MOQ was 5 gallons and the price was $185 per gallon. NR has fucked me over with this one as well.
Seems odd that BCV doesn’t carry them when Pur is in North Carolina. Oh well. BCV does have Flavor Revolution and their Ripe Banana is one I don’t want to be without.
Edit: BCV does not have FR…duh
I haven’t bought much from NR for quite awhile so I’ll be done with them. I get stuff delivered from BCV before NR even processes the order… which they fuck up about half the time.
As i said to NR over on ELR I will never again develop a recipe using Purilum since they will not guarantee supply. The fact that they are the sole distro in Nth America means that everyone has their nuts in a vice and has to buy from NR. I am not sure if Purlium would even direct supply another Nth American merchant. I had a conversation with Edmond Nelson (Tripp) over at purilum about all of this and there is nothing he will do about it - (I even suggested dropping purilum’s MOQ on the flavours that NR were cutting I got nowhere)
Makes me wonder if the same people own both companies. I did see where some EU vendors sell them but didn’t check to see if they have what I want. Shipping would likely be a deal killer anyway. Fucked up!!!
Na Purilum has been around for quite a bit longer than NR (I believe). The original NR house flavours were all Pur bar a couple. I have been meaning to drop Tripp another question and ask if the MOQ of 5 gal all had to be the same flavour or not.
I would have thought that NR moving to a bigger warehouse would mean more flavour lines not less. They are also dropping a few businesses who they used to do fulfillment for (ejuices.com being the biggest one)
I use NR Heaven, Kilanca, and Bliss which is kinda “ok”. So I guess I’ll order some large bottles and then be done with them. I did read part of the ELR list and didn’t see them as discontinued but I’ll work on cloning them so maybe I won’t be stuck like I am. I was going to try salts from them them but I think I’ll try @FizzeWizze 's source instead unless you can recommend something else.
100mg/ml in VG mainly because they will ship to Au where others will only ship 48mg.
There is a massive list that NR are discontinuing and they have said there will be a sale but who wants to wait till they may not be able to get their fav flav.
Here is the list of flavors being discontinued by NR. Now i am not sure if they will still be available since they did say they were being discontinued from their website (they may be available if you were to call em i dont know).

Thanks. There aren’t many listed that I use but there are a few so it still sucks. I don’t make enough juice to buy large quantities. The biggest I have ever bought were 4 oz flavors.
I’ll try the salts.
In post 2056, NR said:
Of course, like you say, it sucks either way since they’re the only source for certain flavors.
But, for those available elsewhere, it’ll be nice if one can get a fairly good deal (not that I’m holding my breath on that either).
If you can wait, I’m sure they will announce a Christmas sale code soon enough. At least since they are just in Oklahoma, your transport time won’t be much. If degrading nicotine is sometimes the result of long transit times as I’ve heard before.
I will post and tag you in as soon as I get an email code from them.
With the weather as cold as it is, I don’t think long transport times is an issue, like it would be during the sweltering summer months !
Agree. Heat will oxidize nic and make it harsh. The salts are claimed to minimize oxidation and be smooth which is why I’m finally going to try them. I have a stock from Nic River i wanted to use up but have noticed increasing harshness and it has gone from clear to a slight brown tint. It doesn’t taste bad yet but I think it eventually will. They also claim a longer shelf life with salts. I’m anxious to see.
Yes that is exactly what I have found and while it may be minimally harder to work with (TBH I find it easier) Salts in 100% VG will last even longer than 100% PG.
100% VG will last even longer…
Why is that?
I am not entirely sure but when I first started using salts I found that the VG did oxidize slower than the PG (both were still much much slower than freebase). If I were to guess I would say viscosity but it would only be a guess. Keep in mind that most salts will start off with a slight yellow tinge (not all) the pg salts I have used in the past were a lot darker in colour than the VG so it may just be a miss conception that they oxidize faster.
Nicotine Salicylate (Salicylic acid salts) are more likely to have a slight brown colour than Nicotine Benzoate (Benzoic acid salts). Both will have a slight odour in the bottle (almost musty) but cannot be detected after mixing.
No they do not. Don’t know where I got this …my bad
This just in…
