72mg Darkstar Nicotine
If you were offered 500ml of this, what would you expect the going rate to be? Kept in a freezer since purchase since just before you couldn't buy this anymore.

Obviously not buying or selling it here.

I bought several batches, mostly 1L, one batch 2L. Prices varied between just over £30 per litre and £60. Average out and divide by two, then about £25? Depends on loss of value because of ageing, and increased value because of scarcity. If I had none, maybe I'd go to £50.

RE: 72mg Darkstar Nicotine
I'd give the seller what they paid and hope it was good.

If they ask for a penny more, I'd import my own from outside the EU. Bollocks to anyone wanting to cash in on scarcity.

I’d just buy new 72mg nic from a vendor.

RE: 72mg Darkstar Nicotine
I paid £27.99 (including VAT) for 500ml of Darkstar 72mg as a 5 x 100ml sealed amber bottle freezer pack, back in November 2016.

It could be worth pointing out to the seller that while 72mg is scarce, the quantity he/she is selling is well over a year old, you only have their word that it was frozen as described, and you aren't prepared to pay an exorbitant price.

If they still ask you to pay over the odds, tell them to shove it, and do your best to source it elsewhere.

That nicotine has been banned in the EU, because of bullshit science or some corrupt official deciding that it would be better (for their bank balance) to have people smoke, does not mean that nicotine is scarce. There is a very healthy supply available, which the EU commision seem to feel we shouldn't be able to access.

Apologies, I seem to have underestimated the level of local pedantry.

I should have been clearer and pointed out that legally sourced 72mg for non B2B customers, along with all nicotine base above 20mg in containers larger than 10ml, is perhaps a little harder to obtain here in the UK than it was before May last year. (Hey, I'm a massive fan of pedantry myself Wink).

The fact that the OP is asking for opinions on a possible purchase of 2nd hand frozen nic base would suggest it isn't particularly easy to come across (certaintly less ubiquitous than Freddos) and could be reasonably considered 'scarce'. A term you almost use yourself in a post earlier in this thread...

A forgivable schoolboy error.

Never underestimate the level of pedantry CheesyGrin

RE: 72mg Darkstar Nicotine
You can buy it on eBay. I bought some recently, it's not hard to get at all.

September 2013 I was hooked on cigarettes. After the purchase of many tanks, batteries, atomizers, mods, Box mods etc. I'm hooked on vaping........but I haven't smoked a single cigarette.Dance
