Are you a beginner in vaping? Are you switching from smoking to vaping? Don’t know how to choose Nicotine for your e-liquids? Don’t worry. This blog is your one-stop guide to everything you need to know about the quantity of nicotine you need to choose while vaping.
Although most of the vaping e-liquids do not contain tobacco, they do have traces of nicotine in them. There are only four simple ingredients that are present in vape i.e. propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerine (VG), food-grade flavouring & Nicotine (which is optional mainly) whereas there are more than 7000 chemicals present in conventional cigarettes.
Nicotine is an alkaloid extracted from the tobacco plant Nicotiana tabacum. It is even found in small amounts in common foods such as tomatoes, potatoes, and aubergine. Nicotine works as both a relaxant and a stimulant, with people reporting effects such as mood elevation, alertness, and calmness. Nicotine is generally viewed as physically and psychologically addictive, and so many vapers who started out as smokers use e-juice with varying levels of nicotine. Commercial e-juice can be bought without nicotine but it is usually sold with a range of strengths. The most common are:
- 3mg (low)
- 6mg (medium-low)
- 12mg (medium)
- 18mg (medium-high)
- 24mg (high)
- and even 36mg (very high)
These values are the amount of nicotine per ml of juice. These are also represented as a percent per solution. For example, 1.2% instead of 12mg/ml. The amounts are the same, just displayed differently.
So, when you start vaping, you should try an assortment of nicotine strengths and flavours to see what you prefer the best. Heavy smokers will be more contented with higher nicotine level in an e-liquid so that the vaping experience becomes pleasant. Similarly, light smokers should opt for lesser amount of nicotine. Depending on your choice of flavours, you can switch to other liquid tastes. If you want to reduce your nicotine consumption, do it gradually over time – if you start at a medium level, then try to reduce it to low-medium after a month or two, and continue until you reach the lowest level with which you are comfortable. Eventually you may find you don’t need nicotine at all, and can shift to zero strength juice. Of course, if you feel the juice isn’t satisfying your nicotine cravings you can shift to a higher strength.
