“How much nicotine can we get from e-cigarette juice?” is a question often asked by newcomers to the e-cigarette product industry.
“Will e-cigarettes become a viable alternative to smoking?”
Experts on the subject agree that e-cigarette products are the best option for quitting smoking and that this has health benefits, as evidenced by a growing number of research findings.
However, these guzzling wonders still contain a significant amount of nicotine, so let’s learn more about this element of e-cigarette products so that this article can help you.
Nicotine concentration in e-liquids
The wide range of nicotine concentrations in today’s standard e-liquids usually raises the question of equivalence – “If we want our e-cigarette product experience to be at least roughly equivalent to the nicotine concentration in e-liquids, what concentration do we need to check and look for? How do we feel after smoking a certain amount of cigarettes?”
This question is difficult to answer because it depends so much on the type of e-cigarette product device used, the vaping size used by the e-cigarette user, and the way they typically smoke.
The bottom line: the optimal nicotine level in e-cigarette oil has been studied numerous times before, and when nicotine levels are too high, it often causes disease in the real world, affecting tens of millions of smokers and ex-smokers.
In the most basic terms, the optimal nicotine levels in e-cigarette oils for specific user profiles can be divided into the following categories:
Nicotine-free e-cigarette oils are ideal for those who enjoy smoking e-cigarettes but do not want to find anything but mechanical smoking alternatives, especially those who want to avoid nicotine exposure.
E-cigarette oils containing three (3) to six (6) milligrams of nicotine per milliliter are ideal for those who want to reduce their daily nicotine use but are less likely to fully satisfy their addiction as habitual smokers do.
E-liquids with a nicotine concentration of 12 milligrams per milliliter are often considered sufficient to replace a pack-a-day smoking habit.
E-liquids with a nicotine concentration of 18 milligrams per milliliter would be able to replace at least one (1) pack per day of moderate to heavy smoking.
E-liquids containing 24 mg per mL are considered very concentrated and should only be considered for heavy smokers who smoke more than two (2) packs per day.
E-liquids with a nicotine content of 36 mg/mL or higher may produce harmful nicotine levels and should therefore only be used to dilute e-liquids with lower nicotine levels.
The vast majority agree that e-cigarette oils containing approximately 16 mg of nicotine per milliliter produce levels of nicotine per hit comparable to full-flavored cigarettes.
On a per hit basis, e-cigarette oil with 11 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter is essentially similar to a light cigarette, while e-cigarette oil with 24 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter is roughly equivalent to the strongest cigarette.
Nicotine Strength Values in E-Cigarette Oil
The nicotine strength of the e-liquid described below is measured in milligrams per milliliter in the container, which means that a 10-milliliter bottle of 6 milligrams of nicotine e-liquid would contain 60 milligrams of nicotine (i.e., 6 milligrams x 10 milliliters).
The newly released TPD regulations limit the nicotine strength value of e-liquids to 20 mg/mL or less, and the following belongs to the information about this TPD regulation:
Regular cigarettes contain about 1.2 mg of nicotine per cigarette, or 24 mg of nicotine per stick, which is similar to Marlboro Red (1.2 mg x 20 cigarettes).
Light cigarettes provide about 0.7 mg of nicotine per stick, or 14 mg of nicotine per pack, which is similar to Marlboro Light (0.7 mg x 20 cigarettes).
Ultra-light cigarettes, such as SilkCut cigarettes, contain about 0.5 mg of nicotine per stick or 10 mg of nicotine per pack (0.5 mg x 20 cigarettes).
As you transition from smoking cigarettes to e-cigarettes, be sure to keep the following points in mind when deciding on the nicotine strength to test
Other elements, such as the ratio of VG to PG or the flavor you choose, can have a significant impact on each nicotine dose, so try trying a few different variations from time to time.
If you smoke ten (10) regular cigarettes per day, the nicotine concentration would be 18 mg.
Up to ten (10) light cigarettes per day has a nicotine level of 12 mg.
A maximum of ten (10) ultra-light cigarettes per day has a nicotine level of 6 mg.
3 mg nicotine dose for very mild or occasional smokers
0 mg nicotine strength = no nicotine at all
E-Cigarettes vs. Smoking – Nicotine Levels
As noted above, providing any individual smoker with a nicotine level similar to the e-cigarette experience is an inexact science in terms of acceptable nicotine craving satisfaction.
The difference between e-cigarettes and smoking comes down to the fact that smoking is a different physical activity that results in different nicotine consumption profiles. Typically, e-cigarettes provide far more nicotine than smoking.
This conclusion may be based on how combustion affects nicotine release and the fact that many smokers may waste half or more of a regular cigarette just by letting it burn.
However, it would be an understatement to say that the processes of smoking and e-cigarette smoking are very different. The most significant difference between the two of them is huge: on the one hand, e-cigarettes are generally considered much safer than smoking because cigarette smoke contains a lot of chemicals and carcinogens, and none of these come into contact with e-cigarettes.
The second benefit is that e-cigarettes are much cheaper than smoking because they are a much more efficient way to ingest nicotine.
The nicotine content of e-cigarette devices is always subjective and hinges on factors such as personal preferences and restrictions; even so, with enough knowledge of nicotine content and strength, everyone can fully understand the specific risks associated with these numbers.
This component can make or break your e-cigarette experience, especially when it comes to the nicotine content in e-cigarettes, so please exercise strict self-discipline and love yourself.
