Many people use electronic cigarettes as a nicotine replacement therapy, allowing them to choose their nicotine strength rather than it already being predetermined by the major tobacco companies. Needless to say, whether you vape for pure pleasure or as a means to control your nicotine intake, determining the appropriate nicotine strength you are using is probably one of the most important things you should know. Below are a few tips to help you differentiate between all the nicotine concentration levels available to you on the market.

What do we mean by nicotine strengths?

Just like how numerous cigarette brands possess variations of nicotine levels, e-juice capsules used for vaping also come in different nicotine strengths. Although both combustible cigarettes and e-cigarettes contain nicotine, e-cigs offer people more of a choice when it comes to selecting a desired level of nicotine concentration. This makes it easier for ex-smokers to take control of their bodies and wean themselves off of the addictive substance entirely.

How do you determine the nicotine strength you need?

In order to successfully use e-cigarettes as a nicotine replacement therapy, you will need to determine the appropriate nicotine strength that your body needs. Usually the perfect strength is determined by understanding and evaluating your prior smoking habits. Were you an occasional, light, moderate or heavy smoker? The nicotine strength that you start off with will be comparable to how many cigarettes that you were smoking daily. Ensuring that you have the right nicotine concentration in your e-juice will allow you meet the nicotine intake that you need, all while have the option to slowly decrease it over time. Many vapers successfully wean themselves down to zero nicotine e-juice over time.

Here is how we break it down:

  • 0mg/ml (zero nicotine) – good for people that are trying to cut out their nicotine dependency altogether. This is usually the strength people use over time.
  • 12 mg/ml (1.2% nicotine) – good for light to moderate ex-smokers, particularly those who used ‘light’ combustible cigarettes.
  • 24 mg/ml (2.4% nicotine) – good for moderate ex-smokers that are used to smoking about half a pack per day.
  • 36 mg/ml (3.6% nicotine) – good for heavy ex-smokers that are used to smoking a full pack a day or unfiltered cigarettes.

It’s important to understand that every vaper requires a different nicotine strength. We possess juices that contain zero nicotine all the way up to 36 mgs so that we can appeal to people who want to cut out nicotine completely and to those that need a little extra to help them stop smoking combustible cigarettes.
