Domestic U.S. orders generally take between 2 – 5 days for delivery. However, delivery times are estimates and are not guaranteed delivery times and depend on the following:

  • Your location
  • Bad weather often affects shipping times. For example, during high seasons, such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day, and when Federal holidays fall on a Monday, USPS takes much longer to deliver the packages than through the ordinary course of the year.

If you elect to return a non-defective product for an order that received free shipping, please be advised that you will be responsible for the cost of the initial shipping fee. The cost of the initial shipping fee will be deducted from the refund amount and is non-refundable.

Are you experiencing a shipping-related issue? Don’t worry; our dedicated team will do everything we possibly can to help resolve the problem for you as quickly as possible. Of course, you can always contact us for assistance; however, before doing so, we kindly ask you to read through the section below, which will help answer some of the most common shipping questions.

If your tracking number is not updating, let us sincerely apologize. As Black Note pays extra fees, we share your frustration to ensure a tracking number accompanies every package. However, tracking numbers are generally updated at 7:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time). 

Unfortunately, once we hand over your package to the shipping carrier, it is up to them to scan the tracking number at each stage of the delivery process to provide you with updated tracking information. Sometimes they need to update the tracking information as it should. However, please rest assured that this does not mean we did not ship your package. 

We stand behind our policy of shipping your packages the same day if we receive your order by 4:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time). So, even if the tracking number only reads “Shipping Label Created” or “Arrived at the Sort Facility,” you can be confident that your order has been shipped and is on the way to you.

We are sorry your order shows as having been delivered, but the package is not in your possession. Therefore, we pay an additional fee for each box to be accompanied by a tracking number. This is for your benefit so that you can track your order as it is en route to you and allow us to verify the package has indeed reached you.

If the tracking information states that the order has been delivered, we, unfortunately, must determine that this is, in fact, the case. This is because a company policy whereby we send out a second package or issue a refund when a claim is made that the original order never reached our customer is not sustainable. 

Many individuals would take advantage of this type of policy and claim a lost package when they did receive it. As such, Black Note cannot guarantee package delivery under any circumstance. Black Note will not re-ship or refund any order marked as delivered by the carrier. All reimbursements, if any, will be made through the specific courier after a claim has been won. However, rest assured that we will not leave you to fend for yourself if this occurs. We will help you through all the steps necessary to file a claim with the shipping company.

It is imperative to note that if your tracking number shows that the package has been delivered but has not reached you, you must notify us within 24 hours from the time the package was marked as having been delivered. We sincerely apologize, but if we are not informed within the 24-hour time frame, there will be no recourse available.

Before you panic, please attempt the following solutions, as the vast majority of the time, one of the next will resolve the problem:

SOLUTION 1: Often, when the package shows as having been delivered, it is left with the manager or leasing office of your apartment/condominium complex or Po Box. Please check with them to see if they have your package. 

SOLUTION 2: Most condominium and apartment complexes provide the residents with a small mailbox that can only fit envelopes and magazines but cannot fit boxes and packages. When a resident receives a package, the postman will place it in a larger mailbox dedicated to bigger items, then will place the key to the larger box inside of your mailbox. Please check for this key to see if that is where it has been left for you. 

SOLUTION 3: Sometimes when the package shows as having been delivered, but you don’t have the package it is because you made a minor typo when entering your shipping address. For example, you typed the street address as “8465” rather than “4865.” Please check your shipping confirmation email to see what address was entered. If you realize that the wrong address was entered, you can go to the address it was delivered to and attempt to recover your package.

SOLUTION 4: If none of the above solutions resolves the issue, please immediately visit your nearest post office. Please provide them with your tracking number and any information they request, then ask them to speak to a supervisor or the Postmaster. Once you are in touch with a supervisor or Postmaster, ask them to check with the specific carrier who delivered the package to your address to confirm that it was in fact delivered, and if so, specifically where the package was left. We have seen a packaging recovery of nearly 100% with a physical visit to the local post office, as well as a conversation with the PostMaster.

Please first allow us to sincerely apologize for the delay in receiving your package. We know how frustrating it can be to expect an item to be delivered by a specific date but fail to reach you—mainly when you are very excited about receiving your order. Please understand that Black Note takes painstaking measures to get your orders out as quickly as possible. Orders placed by 2:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time) are shipped out the same day. Orders placed after that time will ship out the very next business day.

We wholeheartedly wish that we had complete control over the entire delivery process. Still, unfortunately, once the package has been handed to the post office, we are entirely at their mercy. We have no control whatsoever over delivery times once the package has been placed in their possession. We completely understand your frustration, but please know that there is absolutely nothing we can do.

We are very sorry that you have not received your package. We genuinely share your frustration and will do everything in our power to assist you. Please understand that we take very costly and thorough measures to offer the industry’s fastest free shipping and best customer service. However, unfortunately, the one aspect of the delivery process that we have no control over it once the package has been handed over to the Post Office. At that point, we are regretfully entirely at their mercy. Please rest assured that we will not leave you to deal with this on your own—we will work with you diligently to help resolve the problem. If you are experiencing this issue, please follow the steps below to assist you best.

Step 1: Send Us an Email to Alert Us About The Problem

Let us know that you have yet to receive the package to make a note of it in our system. This way, if the package does not arrive, we will be able to locate your file and help you with the process of filing a claim.

Although this situation is highly frustrating, please don’t panic, as we have seen a near 100% recovery rate. We are here to help you through this, and together we are confident that your package will be found and delivered to you.

Black Note ships internationally to many countries. We are constantly working on adding more countries to the list; however, if your country is not an option when entering your shipping address, we have unfortunately yet to open up to your location.

Please ensure you understand the laws regarding electronic cigarettes in your country. Black Note cannot be responsible for packages that are seized by customs due to laws prohibiting the sale of electronic cigarette devices.

Black Note cannot pay the duty fees and taxes that your country may require for imported goods. However, once your package passes through customs, they may need you to pay a small customs tax, which is standard for any country.

Important Note: Black Note does not assume any liability for packages shipped internationally once the package has been handed to the delivery company.

Please note that it is the customer’s responsibility to enter the correct delivery address details for both domestic and international orders at the time of ordering. If the customer enters the incorrect or incomplete address and goods are delivered to the wrong address, we are under no obligation to issue a refund or send replacement goods. Likewise, if goods are returned to us because they have been sent to the wrong address, we are not obliged to re-send them at our expense; however, a refund will be offered less the postal cost. If you notice that you have provided incorrect or incomplete details, please contact us for assistance.

When a card issuing bank receives an authorization request for a charge, they will confirm that the card number is valid and verify that there are available funds to cover the requested amount. If the funds are available, the card issuing bank will reserve the funds, and return an authorization code that allows you to claim the funds during settlement.

The card issuing bank also compares the cardholder's billing address on file to the address submitted with the transaction. The bank then returns an AVS response code along with the authorization code that indicates whether or not the billing address matches the bank's records. 

However, even if a transaction is declined due to an AVS Mismatch or other reasons, the authorization code and the hold on the authorized funds will remain on the customer's card until the card issuing bank removes the authorization. As a result, the held funds may be subtracted from the customer's available balance, and an online statement may show the authorization request, which might be mistaken for an actual charge

Most card issuing banks will remove authorizations within 3-7 days if they are not claimed for settlement.

Eliquids

The price you see when shopping on Blacknote.com is the price you pay at checkout. No hidden or additional fees.

Additionally, the list below highlights the differences in quality when comparing our naturally extracted tobacco e-liquids to the artificially flavored and chemically-treated vape liquids currently on the market. 

 

  1. We Only Use Natural Extraction: All of our vape liquids are naturally extracted tobacco vape liquids. Nothing we produce is artificially made in a lab. Learn More
  2. Our eliquids don't contain chemicals like diacetyl, acetyl propionyl, ethylene glycol, acrolein, and acetoin.
  3. Our 9-Step Process Takes 3 Years: It takes us three years to perfect our blends. Our process takes longer, but it produces the highest quality eLiquid. Learn More
  4. We Only Use High-quality Ingredients: We only use natural ingredients in our eLiquids. We don’t use artificial flavors, sweeteners, or synthetic nicotine in our e-liquids. Did you know flavored tobacco products are now banned in California?
  5. We Produce Our Vape Liquids in Small Batches: How we make natural tobacco vape liquid is a slow process requiring more time, labor, and smaller batches. It’s not cheap, but it does produce a higher quality eLiquid.
  6. With Us, You Get Great Products And Great Service

Using incompatible setups can lead to LEAKAGE, a HARSH THROAT HIT, the risk of NICOTINE OVERDOSE, DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE, and an overall POOR VAPING EXPERIENCE. Adhering to these guidelines ensures a safer and more enjoyable use of our products.

We highly recommend the Virginia Tobacco in 12mg or 18mg traditional nicotine, or 30mg or 50mg in SALT nicotine here .

The main difference between Black Note salts and freebase nicotine is the form in which the nicotine is present in the e-liquid. Salts use nicotine in its natural salt form, which results in a smoother throat hit and faster nicotine absorption. Freebase nicotine, on the other hand, is the pure form of nicotine and provides a stronger throat hit. The choice between salts and freebase nicotine depends on individual preferences for throat hit and nicotine absorption speed.

Depending on your budget or style, we recommend the following excellent devices: 

  1. Aspire Vilter Pro
  2. Aspire Vilter S
  3. Aspire Vilter
  4. Aspire OBY 
  5. Vaporesso Zero 2

The above MTL devices would work seamlessly with this blend. An MTL device, or Mouth-to-Lung device, is a type of vaping device designed to mimic the sensation of smoking a traditional cigarette. With an MTL device, the vapor is drawn into the mouth first and then inhaled into the lungs. 

This style of vaping involves using higher resistance coils (above 1 ohm) and lower power settings, resulting in a tighter draw and a more restricted airflow. MTL devices are commonly preferred by those transitioning from smoking to vaping, as they provide a similar experience and throat hit. 

If you're using your own device, remember to use higher resistance coils (1 ohm or above) and keep the wattage below 18 watts for the optimal vaping experience.

It is important to watch the Unboxing User Guide Video & How-to-use Tutorial listed next to the product page on our website to avoid device issues and enhance your vaping experience.  

For optimal performance and longevity of your devices, we also suggest the following tips:

  1. Never charge the battery overnight.
  2. Check the storage conditions of your liquids. Exposure to excessive heat or extreme temperatures can impact performance and lifespan.
  3. When refilling the cartridges, avoid overfilling to prevent leaking and decreased performance. Please follow the manufacturer's guidelines and refer to the owner's manual for proper filing procedures.
  4. Wait five minutes after filling the pod before you take the first puff.

We use a ratio of 50/50 and 70/30 percent propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. We have extensively tested our VG/PG for purity.

Black Note e-liquids in 50vg/50pg are crafted for ultra-low wattage & pod-based systems. If you want to have a top-notch Black Note flavor experience, we recommend you use the optimal device setting for the best mouth-to-lung (MTL) cigarette-like experience.

 

You’ll get the best results by using a device that offers:

 

  • Coil: MTL coil with a resistance of 0.8 ohms or higher.
  • Recommended Power Level: Do not exceed 18 watts.

 

We recommend Black Note Tobacco Vaping Liquids to be used in vape pod systems and ultra low-output atomizers/mods. This is optimal for both beginners and experienced vapers looking for a travel-friendly experience and discrete devices.

Note: 50vg/50pg products are Not For Sub-Ohm Use. Not For Use in devices that reach sub-ohm resistance.

No. Our product does not contain diacetyl. We have further tested our products for the following compounds: ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, 2,3-Pentanedione, Acetaldehyde, Acetoin, Acetone, and Acrolein. Since Black Note does not use artificial flavors or sweeteners and only relies on naturally extracted tobacco vapor liquid, these harmful chemicals don’t exist in our products. These compounds are the byproduct of artificial flavors and sweeteners.

Are you Frequently changing coils not to compromise the flavor profile and juice taste and avoid the busing sensation? Are you Spending big bucks on vape coil replacements every week? Are your coils burning out in 2-3 days? 

Coil gunk is residual e-liquid partially vaporized and sticks to the Coil. Over time, based on usage, the Gunk builds up into a thick, dark crust layer that could significantly affect a vape juice’s taste and throat hit. Therefore, vape coils are crucial in converting the e-juice to vapor. 

Black Note natural tobacco extracts are full of natural oils, which causes the Coil in pods to degrade rather quickly. We use the technology and mentality to produce our Natural Vaping tobacco extract in general near to high-quality wines, perhaps beer brewing, and far apart from chemical mixed (synthetic) Vaping products. Therefore, our Vaping extracts, unlike synthetic or chemically treated natural products, are genuine natural products.

Solution
Black Note has introduced a Special Blend that is super Coil friendly. The blend is a distillate, and the flavor profile is similar to the American Blend. Thanks to the newest technology from Black Note Labs, making Water-Based Tobacco Vaping flavor Possible.

You can confidently Say “Goodbye” to Gunky Coils, Burt Taste, and dark ejuice with Black Note’s Newest & Most innovative Tobacco Extraction Technology. The select purification method is a cutting-edge protocol where our Ph.D. chemists selectively eliminate waxes, sugars, and heavy oils responsible for gunky vape coils. As a result, you can now vape up to 60 ml of eliquid in a small pod before burning the Coil.

Black Note Tobacco Vaping liquids E-liquids come in many nicotine strengths. Nicotine strengths are available from 0mg to 50mg. It can take a few tries to find the strength that suits you. Higher strengths (like 18mg+ ) would typically be more enjoyable in e-liquids with nicotine salts.

Options
Black Note freebase nicotine strengths: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 9mg, 12mg, and 18mg.

Black Note salt nicotine strengths: 20mg, 30mg, and 50mg.

Choosing the right nicotine strength depends on how often and how much you vape. First, you need to find one that matches your cigarette use.

50mg is a high nicotine concentration that may be too harsh for most vapers, unless they are heavy former smokers (consuming more than two packs daily) or current smokers. Lower nicotine concentrations, such as 20 or 30mg, provide a smoother and less intense throat hit compared to higher concentrations like 50mg, which can cause coughing, throat irritation, and even nausea for some users.

Inhalation technique can also contribute to the harshness of the vapor. Try taking slower, shallower puffs instead of deep inhales to see if it helps.

Ultimately, the ideal nicotine concentration depends on individual preferences and needs. It's essential to experiment with different nicotine concentrations to find the one that works best for you. Please note that using an MTL device with a coil rating of 1 ohm or higher and wattage between 10-15 watts is a must.

Happy Vaping!

When it comes to vaping, the vape juice you use will determine how much you enjoy vaping. Also, while purchasing Black Note, you might have noticed two PG/VG ratios and several nicotine levels. Choosing the correct PG/VG ratio depends on the vaping device that you use and your personal preferences.

The Black Note 70vg/30pg Vape Juice is a type of e-liquid that contains two bases, including 70% Vegetable Glycerin and 30% Propylene Glycol. Vegetable Glycerin is a thick, natural liquid with a sweet flavor. Propylene Glycol is a thin, non-toxic artificial fluid with no natural flavor, so it’s better at carrying tobacco flavors added to e-juice and has a longer shelf life since it’s non-natural.

Both VG and PG bases are safe and widely used to carry flavors in various consumable products. One major health issue is that PG can cause throat irritation and lead to allergies such as stomach upset, rashes, or difficulty breathing. Opting for an e-liquid with a higher VG base like 70vg/30pg Vape Juice may be the best option.

  • Smoothness: 70vg/30pg Vape Juice tends to offer a much smoother feeling on the throat, with a more considerable, ‘thicker’ mouthfeel due to its high VG base. This is beneficial because the vaper experiences a slight throat hit and doesn’t feel overpowered.
  • Cloud Chasing: If you want to exhale the most considerable vapor clouds, 70vg/30pg is your vape juice. VG is the main ingredient responsible for vapor production. This is also the best vape juice for a competitive vaper, resulting in dense clouds.
  • Lower levels of nicotine: 70vg/30pg e-liquids have a much lower nicotine content because the amount of vapor produced is substantial. Since the vaper will be inhaling larger quantities of vapor, less nicotine is required to achieve satisfaction.

Overall the 70vg/30pg Vape Juice is for the casual or lifestyle vaper looking for a good level of tasty flavor, a nice smooth throat hit, and big clouds while exhaling. It is a little of everything, and it’s the best ratio where vapers feel they are getting the best of both worlds. So go ahead and shop for a high-quality Black Note 70/30 mix.

Depending on the ratio of PG and VG, e-liquids can have different taste properties and provide a different sensation to users. PG and VG affect, among others, such features as the throat hit, final taste, cloud size during vaping, and allergy risk. Compare the characteristics of PG/VG in the explanation below: 

70vg/30pg

Nicotine bases with such a ratio will leave vapers with a more noticeable throat hit and simultaneously perfect flavor dissolution but also allow them to still enjoy those loved-by-all thick clouds. The Vaping Style for this ratio is Direct-To-Lung (DTL) for Sub-ohm Use, and recommended coils < 0.8 Ohm. High Wattage Devices are compatible with the 70vg/30pg. 

50vg/50pg

Perfection when it comes to balancing between "throat hit," taste, and clouds. Nicotine base 50 propylene glycol / 50 vegetable glycerine may also work excellently for those who waver about what to choose. The Vaping Style for this ratio is Mouth-To-Lung (MTL), Not For Sub-ohm Use, and recommended coils > 0.8 Ohms. In addition, always use a Low Wattage Device with this ratio of fewer than 20 watts.

We can no longer carry glass bottles per Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) guidelines for e-liquid containers “restricted flow requirement” states that an opened bottle, when inverted and squeezed continuously for five seconds by a five-year-old child, must dispense no more than two milliliters of e-liquid. No glass bottle could pass such a test since the contents would flow freely when the opened bottle is tipped upside down. The rule can be found in section 1700.15 of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.

We use a low-density polyethylene design. This bottle is constructed from raw materials and is BPA-free. Plus, being child-resistant and tamper-evident, without any worry about children accidentally ingesting it. In addition, the impact-resistant bottle is much softer, boasting a smoother squeeze, while using a pressure seal, leak-proof, tight-fitting dripper base, and the  Pinch a Drip and Squeeze a Flow system to improve dispensing and prevent drips.

Extractives and their physically modified derivatives, such as tinctures, concretes, absolutes, essential oils, oleoresins, terpenes, terpene-free fractions, distillates, residues, etc., obtained from Nicotiana tabacum, Solanaceae. Pure Tobacco Extract obtained from Nicotiana Tabacum CAS no. is 84961-66-0. 

A CAS Registry Number is a unique identification number assigned by the Chemical Abstracts Service, US, to every chemical or natural substance described in the open scientific literature.

The Black Note product collection is an honest lineup using natural tobacco and menthol flavors. Those have been and will continue to be the only vaping liquids we offer. Our unadulterated, straight tobacco flavor comes from different tobacco varieties. This means all our tobacco flavors have only one CAS number except for Menthol. Black Note’s Menthol blend starts with sun-cured Oriental tobacco extract, which is then overlaid with a cool menthol extract derived from genuine peppermint leaves. (Mentha arvensis extract with CAS no. 90063-97-1)

On May 19, 2019, we performed comprehensive testing and HPHCs analysis to measure the levels of HPHCs in our Virginia Tobacco e-liquid formulations containing 0 and 18 mg/mL nicotine. Compared to smoke-chemistry research of cigarettes and recently authorized products such as the IQOS, the Virginia Tobacco e-liquid product demonstrates substantially lower potential exposures to all measured HPHCs. 

Most HPHCs and other constituents were below the quantitation limit when used as intended. Furthermore, based on publicly available information, all detected HPHCs and constituents were lower than other ENDS products on the market. 

Compared to smoke-chemistry analysis of cigarettes and recently authorized products such as the IQOS, the Black Note Tobacco e-liquid product demonstrates substantially lower potential exposures to all but two of the measured HPHCs (Menthol and nicotine). In addition, the vast majority of the other HPHCs and other constituents, when used as intended, were BELOW the quantitation limit, and those which were detected were numerous HPHCs and other constituents when used as intended, on par with [or lower than] other ENDS products on the market, based on publicly available information.

Nicotine in e-liquid is measured as milligrams per milliliter (mg/ml), with bottles commonly coming in levels of 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 9mg, 12mg, 18mg, 20mg, 30mg, and 50mg. This tells you the amount of liquid nicotine there is in a bottle in relation to the total amount of e-liquid in the bottle. 

This means that a bigger bottle of e-liquid will contain more nicotine overall than a smaller bottle with the same nicotine strength. So if you get a 15 ml bottle and a 30 ml bottle of the same strength, the 30 ml bottle will contain twice as much nicotine as the 15 ml bottle.

The nicotine is mixed throughout the bottle, so whenever you fill-up the same tank or clearomizer with an e-liquid of a specific strength, you get the same amount of nicotine. In other words, in a bottle of 12mg/ml e-liquid, every ml of e-liquid contains 12 milligrams of nicotine, mixed evenly throughout, so you get a consistent hit of nicotine with every puff.

The basic rules of e-liquid storage are that it should be kept away from light, in a cool location, and somewhere that children or pets won’t get access to it. That is why we created cardboard tubes to give our liquid more protection.

If it’s exposed to light and air, the nicotine will oxidize and your e-liquid will get darker. This doesn’t change its core properties, but it can be easily avoided with proper storage. If you store your e-liquid in the worst way possible (near a window with the cap off) you could lose a notable amount of nicotine, but in most cases the difference is negligible.

The bigger concern for spoilage is the flavors, which will degrade more quickly in light and heat. None of this is going to do you any harm, but the flavor will be ruined.

Ideally, e-liquid should be stored in an air-tight container, but as soon as you’ve had a bit of your e-liquid this is hard to achieve. Glass is better than plastic for long-term storage for this reason, though, because plastic is slightly permeable by air.

Propylene glycol (PG) is one of the main ingredients in e-liquid, and although most vapers can inhale it without a problem, it can cause an allergic reaction for a small percentage. You can rectify the issue by switching to vegetable glycerin (VG) based e-liquid.

For those sensitive to PG, the most common consequence is excessive irritation and a sore, dry throat when inhaling PG-based liquids, but in some cases, more typical allergic reactions can occur. These include sinus problems, headaches and nausea, and in some cases numbness of the face and itchy hives.

Between 1.5 and 3.5 percent of people have a contact allergy to PG (although there is some uncertainty about the precise number). In these cases, small bumps may be present around your mouth, accompanied by a burning or stinging sensation in the affected areas.

Another thing to consider, however, is that there may be some crossover between potential signs of allergies and symptoms from stopping smoking (such as “quit zits”), so the best way to be sure is to stop vaping or use a different e-liquid (see below) for a while to see if the symptoms clear up. If they do, then it’s likely that PG is causing your symptoms.

Finally, it’s worth noting that even vapers who’ve used PG-based liquids before without issues can develop a sensitivity later down the line – just because you’ve been OK before doesn’t mean you won’t develop an allergy or sensitivity.

The simplest solution for vapers allergic to PG is to switch to vegetable glycerin (VG) based e-liquids, or ones with much lower amounts of PG. Although most mixers (including Black Note) use both PG and VG in their e-liquid, you can find VG-only liquids, and some mixers allow you to choose your ratio of the two. If you don’t switch to VG-only liquids, try to keep the PG content as low as possible – 70 percent VG to 30 percent PG may be enough to minimize your symptoms, but the less PG the better.

It’s possible to be allergic to VG too, but this is much less common and is unlikely to be an issue.

Black Note: The Mentality of a Fine Wine

Patience, passion and high-quality ingredients. That’s what goes into making fine wine, brewing premium beer – and crafting Black Note real tobacco vaping liquid. The technology and mentality we use to produce our natural tobacco vaping liquids are generally akin to those used to produce high-caliber wines and beers, not the mindset used to make synthetic vaping products.

Synthetic Tobacco Flavor vs. Genuine Tobacco Flavor Extracts

Unlike synthetic or chemically treated vaping liquids, Black Note contains genuine tobacco flavor extracts we derive from real tobacco leaves. Also unlike synthetic vaping liquids, which can contain a smattering of ingredients you can’t pronounce, our vaping liquid contains five straightforward components.

Five Ingredients in Black Note

  • Nicotine: We use free-based, 100% natural nicotine from carefully selected tobacco leaves with near zero impurities. The tobacco leaves are sourced and certified by Swiss-based Alchem International and significantly exceed EP/USP standards.
  • Real tobacco extract: Our tobacco flavors are naturally extracted from Non-GMO tobacco leaves, leading to a complex, nuanced taste that comes closer than most e-liquids can to the genuine character of tobacco.
  • Propylene glycol (PG): Black Note contains the highest USP Kosher-certified PG, with a minimum of 99.7% purity.
  • Vegetable glycerin (VG): The VG we use is also the highest USP Kosher certified. It’s also FU certified, which denotes the highest level of certification from a purity standpoint.
  • Filtered Water: Even the water we use in our vaping liquids is of the highest purity and quality.

Patience, Passion, High-Quality Ingredients

Black Note is 100% committed to the technology and science that produces the world’s best tobacco vaping experience. In fact, creating a truly superior alternative to the pleasures derived from conventional combustible tobacco is the reason we exist. Give Black Note a try today.

Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, known as PG and VG, are the two primary ingredients in e-liquid and the resulting vapor.

Propylene Glycol (PG)

PG has the chemical name 1,2-propanediol, and is a generally recognized as safe chemical that is used in a wide range of consumer products, including pharmaceuticals, sunscreen, lotions, shampoos, food flavorings, pet foods, cosmetic creams, theatrical smoke machines and many more products. PG is also used in antifreeze, but it’s used to make the antifreeze drastically less toxic for humans and pets. In e-liquid, food grade PG is used to carry the flavor, and the fact that it’s slightly irritating to the throat when inhaled means that it contributes to the “throat hit” of the vapor.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

VG has the chemical name 1,2,3-propanetriol, and like PG, is a generally recognized as safe chemical used in a multitude of consumer products, including pharmaceuticals, foods, cosmetics and in tobacco. As with PG, it may be irritating when inhaled. However, in e-liquid VG produces a much smoother throat-hit, is thicker than PG and imparts more sweetness to the taste.

Safety of PG and VG for Inhalation

There is limited evidence on the safety of PG and VG for inhalation. Still, studies on those exposed to theatrical fog machines (which also use other chemicals and lower-grade PG) generally show very little evidence of harm, with irritation being the only notable effect. Animal studies on PG and VG have also shown no evidence of harm other than mild irritation. However, more research is needed to make any definitive statements about the risks for vapers.

PG/VG Ratios in E-Liquid

The most important thing about PG and VG for vapers is their relative quantities used in a given e-liquid. Generally speaking, higher PG levels improve the flavor (because it doesn’t drown it out as much as VG), produce a stronger throat hit and make the liquid thinner (and therefore more efficient at wicking). On the other hand, VG-based liquids produce thicker vapor, but are more viscous, so they won’t wick as effectively.

At Black Note, we use a 50/50 mix of PG and VG, which provides a nice balance between throat hit, flavor, and vapor production.

Black Note’s Original line and Nic Salts collection come in a 50vg/50pg ratio. Both collections are usually the first option for first-time vapors, but plenty of experts use them, too, since the ratio of PG to VG is balanced. Apart from the flavor, the ratio of PG to VG is one of the characteristics that affect your vaping experience. The 50/50 ratio means that your e-liquid is half Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and half Propylene Glycol (PG). PG and VG are odorless liquids usually combined with nicotine and the desired flavor.

Even though they are in the chemical alcohol category, the liquids are not intoxicating. 50vg/50pg E-Juice allows you to enjoy the flavors of both liquids in equal measures.

Many people like this type of e-juice because it is the perfect compromise between PG and VG. It gives you a chance to enjoy the benefits of both liquids. In addition, the VG gives off a sweet flavor.

It fills your mouth and facilitates enough vapor production. It also helps with smoothness and sweetness.

Low Viscosity

On the other hand, VG thickens your liquid, and PG helps define the flavor. Since both liquids are essential, 50/50 e-liquid gives you a balance. Another advantage is that the 50vg/50pg blends are very thin. The low viscosity makes it appropriate for many vaping devices. 50/50 e-liquids work on just about any vaping device in the market.

Longer Coil Life

A 50/50 juice is an excellent choice if you want to significantly improve the life of your coils without affecting the quality of your vaping experience. Most manufacturers recommend a 50vg/50pg e-Juice because a higher PG ratio may gunk your coils.

Many foods (fruits and vegetables) contain natural chemicals that are toxic to humans. However, they are usually present in tiny amounts, far below the harmful dose. For example, Salicaceae is a family of plants that belong to the tomato, potato, tobacco, eggplant, chili peppers, bell peppers, and many others. All plants have protective devices, either mechanical like thorns or barks, and various types of vegetable poisons, mainly in the form of alkaloids. This is to protect themselves from all phytophagous (insects and animals that feed on plants). Many of the above also contain nicotine and similar alkaloids.

Our cold NATURAL & Proprietary extraction system allows us to extract mainly flavored substances out of the tobacco, only very, very indefinitely small amounts of Nicotine/alkaloids are collected by our process, so small is the amount that one does not have to mention them by LAW in food analysis. Therefore, the constituents of our extraction are perfectly ok and in no way harmful.

In other words, the nicotine amount of traces found in our zero percent e liquids are similar to traces found in tomatoes and eggplants. You can send any of our vaping liquids at zero percent to a local lab in your area, and the result will be nicotine-free.

Typically, those who vape with a sub-ohm device prefer juice with higher vegetable glycerin (VG) to propylene glycol (PG) ratio because it produces more vapor and has less of a throat hit, enabling a longer DTL inhale.

Those using a sub-ohm device will prefer a lower strength e-liquid, typically no higher than 6mg/ml as more nicotine is delivered through the larger intake of vapor, and higher strengths will be too harsh with a sub-ohm coil.

Taste and Smell are generally linked, but not at Black Note. Black Note liquids have no smell. That is because we extract the aromatic constituent of tobacco using a 100% natural cold extraction process. As a result, our liquids do not contain any artificial flavors that typically produce a sharp smell at room temperature. It also means with Black Note. Everything remains in the taste!

So don't think there's something wrong with your nose if you don't smell anything with Black Note. Just know there's something right with your e-liquid.

Black Note natural Tobacco extracts' inherent nature should not contain gluten, so the answer is 99.9 % a No.

However, to be 100% certain, we will have to request a gluten content analysis from the lab to ensure the product is 100% gluten-free with confidence. Until then, we can’t legally make the 100% gluten-free claim because there may be 0.01% traces of gluten coming from somewhere we don’t know and can’t tell.

E-juice shelf life is generally cited as having a shelf life of one to one and a half years, but there is a fair amount of uncertainty on this topic. If you store your e-liquid properly, it can have a shelf life of up to two years.


The estimate for the e-juice expiration date is primarily based on the established shelf lives of PG and VG, with nicotine being capable of being stored indefinitely in proper conditions. The uncertainty comes primarily from the flavorings, which can vary from liquid to liquid. For Black Note, all of our flavors are naturally-extracted from tobacco (and peppermint, for Solo), and we don’t add any flavorings or colorings, but overall the same considerations apply to any e-liquid.

While ejuice can freeze, it has a lower freezing point than water, so frozen puddles at your feet don't necessarily mean frozen e-liquid. Water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius, while the two main components of e-liquid, Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin, freeze at -12 degrees and -17 degrees, respectively.

Due to the PG content in most eJuices, eJuice will not freeze. It will, however, get thicker, and the ingredients may separate until the eJuice is warmed-up. eJuices containing 100%VG may freeze if left outside for a while, but this does not harm the eJuice. Many people have frozen their eJuice to give it a longer shelf life without any adverse effects (although we do not recommend or endorse this practice as we believe that fresh is best for eJuice). Cold is better for eJuice than heat, so if your eJuice or Vape Juice has been sitting outside in freezing weather, all you need to do is let it warm up for approximately 24 hours before you vape it so that it will flow adequately into your wick.

The original nic salt packaging bottle is a 60ml size due to legal constraints but 30ml in volume intentionally. Please watch the following video explaining the issue regarding the fill line: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-ql3Jj9hVc. We have overcome the legal labeling constraints and, as a result, updated the package look and size. 

The new 30ml salt nicotine package doesn't show the word "salt" in the front of it intentionally due to FDA rules, but rest assured, it is 100% salt nicotine. On a side note, any nicotine amount above 24mg is automatically a salt nicotine product. 

Here is how To Open E-Liquid Bottle properly: 

 

  • Step 1: Make sure your hands and the bottle are dry.
  • Step 2: Check the edge of the bottle cap for any shrink wrap or plastic bags. If there are any, break them off.
  • Step 3: Hold the bottle in one hand and firmly press down on the lid with the other hand.
  • Step 4: While still pushing down, twist the lid counter-clockwise.
  • Step 5: Continue unscrewing until the cap is free.

 

More Tips and Life Hacks

 

  1. Always apply downward pressure. This connects the outer and inner caps, allowing you to unscrew them simultaneously. You may need to use more or less pressure depending on the nature and size of the cap. Try increasing or reducing pressure if a bottle refuses to open.
  2. Use a towel for better friction in gripping and unscrewing.
  3. Squeezing the rigged sides of the lid helps.
  4. For stubborn lids, especially those glued in place by leaked e-liquid, try immersing them in hot water for a few minutes. This will expand the cap and melt the liquids.
  5. A plier can come in handy for small-sized bottles.
  6. Open a hole in your e-juice bottle and pour the vape juice into your e-cigarette as a last resort.

No. Black Note is not compatible with JUUL products or any other prefilled/disposable pod on the market.

A 70VG / 30 PG vape juice is a common choice for sub-ohm or temperature control vaping. These types of vape juice work best when the atomizer resistance is between 0.5 ohms and 0.9 ohms. 70/30 will work with lower resistance atomizers, but we feel ideal for the 0.5 to 0.9 area. 

The nicotine content is so much lower in VG e-liquids because the amount of vapor produced is substantial. Because the vaper will be inhaling larger quantities of vapor, less nicotine is required to achieve satisfaction. The two most common nicotine levels for VG vape juice are either 3 mg or 6 mg.

Generally, we ship packages by air. Pods leak typically because of a change in air pressure. This pressure change pushes e-liquid out of the pod. Even though the airplane's cabin is pressurized, the air pressure still differs from the air pressure on the ground.
