Good day folks. I just started using e-cigarettes to quit smoking and I started having some thoughts about modding the liquid. I have no knowledge of chemistry.
The cartomizers use propylene glycol, about 0.5-1 ml per refill. The default vaporizing temperature is roughly 70c, which I would assume can be modded upwards easily. I'm wondering if it would be possible to extract an opioid from pills, put it into the liquid and vaporize it. Buprenorphine is cheap enough to waste in experimenting a little, I see it has a solubility of 17mg/ml which sounds like plenty for this purpose.
My newbie common sense tells me water extraction, evaporate excess water and mix it with the e-liquid. Like I said, absolutely no knowledge of chemistry so my question is would this work, would it vaporize and would it absorb if administered this way?
I'm considering this as a healthier option than IV/snorting, one that I could also do in a public place without raising suspicion. If this would be risky to my health, I won't do it.
