Making the switch from smoking tobacco to an electronic cigarette is a big step in a smoker’s life. Although electronic cigarettes have been around for a long time, there’s a new player in the game that hasn’t even hit its tenth birthday. This new player is called vaping, and our East Norriton vape shop specialists are here to help new users wade the waters and discover everything they need to know to get the most out of their vape experience.
Honestly, you could have the right flavor, the right equipment, but if the nicotine strength is too strong or too weak, it can make or break the user’s satisfaction. Ecigs International has created a handy guide for new and experienced users alike to gauge what nicotine strength suits their lifestyle best.
0% or No Nicotine
Zero nicotine is great for people who are used to smoking a few cigarettes a week. Zero nicotine is also perfect for those who just want the feel of smoking, but have completed recovery and are off nicotine substances altogether. We do not advise pack-a-day smokers to start vaping with zero nicotine because they will go right back to smoking.
0.6% or 6mg Nicotine
We like to compare our 6mg nicotine juices to ultra-light cigarettes. In most shops, this nicotine level is the last step before people think they will feel comfortable with zero nicotine juice. It’s not too intense, not too weak, and we suggest starting with 6mg if you are used to smoking less than half a pack of cigarettes per day.
1.2% or 12mg Nicotine
E-liquid containing 12mg of nicotine is ideal for those who smoke over a pack of cigarettes per day. Although the amount of nicotine in one single cigarette varies, most contain this amount; therefore, those new at vaping will be satisfied with this level.
1.8% or 18mg Nicotine
Those who are a pack a day or more smokers will need a high, 18mg e-liquid to start. However, different devices will produce varying effects for every user. Heavy smokers find 18mg liquids and cartomizer or beginner devices pair nicely together.
2.4% or 24mg Nicotine
We always recommend this level to very heavy smokers. For those who smoke “natural” cigarette brands such as American Spirit or rolled tobacco, this is for you.
Remember, not all people vape to ingest nicotine, and some simply enjoy the flavors or vape to satisfy an oral fixation. If you are looking to break a smoking habit, lowering your nicotine levels over time will get you to zero milligrams, and eliminate nicotine cravings altogether.
