Choosing E-Liquid Nicotine Strength
E-Juice / liquid offer e-cigarettes users much more control over their nicotine consumption, a benefit for many smokers trying to cut down. Most cigarettes contain a set amount of nicotine, so cutting down used to mean cutting out cigarettes. Considering many people become addicted to the habitual nature of going outside for a cigarette, trying to quit by simply cutting out cigarettes can be a bit problematic.
Choosing the right nicotine strength for your vape device
Most e-liquid suppliers sell their e-liquids in strengths ranging between 0-24 milligrams of nicotine per ml of e-liquid. They usually offer multiple strengths in the same flavour, allowing users to slowly taper down their dosage whilst continuing to get the same flavour hit – this helps users to adjust to the change and feel as if they haven’t majorly changed their routine or given something up, it can be a powerful tool for helping people to quit successfully or curb an addiction.
If you were a heavy pack-a-day smoker then the most appropriate nicotine content is probably going to be 12 milligrams. This is most appropriate if you smoke a lot of cigarettes every day, such as twenty-thirty or so cigarettes. Heavier nicotine content usually gives a greater throat hit, which most heavier smokers prefer, and will help with managing cigarettes and nicotine cravings throughout the day.
If you were a light-to-moderate smoker than 6 milligrams of nicotine will probably be most suitable. This is a nice medium amount appropriate for the tolerance of most people; if you’re just switching over to vaping then this is a great place to start. It will feel similar for most smokers to their typical nicotine consumption, and for those who want to cut down their nicotine consumption it makes a great jumping off point before tapering down.
For heavier users, it’s a great idea to start to switch to 6 mg e-juice instead of 12 mg e-juice, slowly increasing the frequency to help your body adapt to the change.
Trying to Quit Smoking?
If you’re trying to quit altogether and cut your consumption to zero then 3 mg is a great transitional quantity of nicotine to use. You might first try using this interchangeably with a higher dosage, like the 6 mg, before cutting down to 3 mg. Once you’re at this point you can start to switch in nicotine free canisters before kicking the habit altogether.
If you never smoked
If you weren’t a smoker, we would prefer you did not take up vaping as our health authorities maintain that people that never smoked take up vaping just to be sociable. Even if you vape zero nicotine e-juice. Vaping has been proven to be at least 95% safer than smoking, be that as it may, why put some substance into your lungs that you really do not need. Passive vape clouds do not contain the carcinogenic properties of tobacco cigarettes and all that is exhaled by vapers is water vapour.
Important things to remember
Please keep your e-juice bottles out of sunlight as the e-liquid deteriorates rapidly when exposed to sunlight. Also please if you choose non tobacco flavours, keep them away from children. Low strength nicotine will not kill a child but it will make them quite ill if ingested. This is the primary reason that we do not package our e-juice in fancy bottles or packets but they resemble medication and we do not call them e-juice but “Quit Smoke “ product.
