Nicotine Consumption via Vaping:

The dosage of nicotine in e-liquid is almost always measured in Milligrams (MG). The current standard nic level in the vaping industry are 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, and 12mg. Heavy smokers usually use consume higher nicotine juices. There are also new variations of nicotine derived from salt nicotine, but we will get to that another time. These values represent the amount of nicotine in each 1 mL of e-liquid, and are sometimes expressed as percentages.

0mg = no nicotine;

3mg = 0.3% nicotine is approximately equivalent to 3 cigarettes;

6mg = 0.6% nicotine concentrate in e-liquid corresponds to 3-10 cigarettes;

12mg = 1.2% nicotine concentrate gives the equivalent of smoking 10-20 cigarettes a day;

18mg = 1.8% nicotine concentration provides nicotine equal to more than 20 cigarettes per day.

Which nicotine level is right for me?

Selecting the right nicotine strength varies from smoker to smoker. Below is a broad guideline of the different nicotine levels compared to smoking cigarettes so you can get an idea of where to start.

While using electronic cigarettes can absorb as much nicotine as traditional cigarette smoking, regular cigarettes contain way more harmful chemicals and toxins that are extremely unhealthy for you.

0mg – good for people trying to cut out their nicotine dependency altogether. Yes, you can vape non-nicotine vape juice.

3mg – good for light smokers and people with lower nicotine dependency.

6mg – good for light to moderate smokers and people who are, particularly used to “light” cigarettes.

6mg+ – good for heavy cigarette smokers and smokers of unfiltered cigarettes.

Liquids come in a variety of compositions and contain vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. If you just want to steam, without nicotine, choose vapes with a high concentration of propylene glycol.
