We’re often asked exactly what 12mg or 18mg strengths mean for nicotine, what are you actually smoking? We’re going to break it down for you, so you can have peace of mind. In short, it’s the amount of nicotine in milligrams, for each milliliter of e-cig liquid, expressed as mg/mL.
Our Nicotine Levels:
- 0mg/mL Nicotine
This means that there is absolutely no nicotine in your e-cig liquid mixture. Zero nicotine levels are usually ordered by people who have quit smoking but still have an oral fixation and use an electronic cigarette to satisfy it.
- 6mg/mL Nicotine
This level of nicotine is the lightest level offered. For people who wish to enjoy the smallest possible nicotine level while still enjoying a full e-cig liquid taste. This is commonly the last level in “stepping.”
- 12mg/mL Nicotine
On the lower end of the spectrum, 12mg/mL is a comfortable level for people who prefer nicotine, but aren’t heavy vapers. This level is also common for people who used to smoke light cigarettes.
- 18mg/mL Nicotine
This is the middle of the road in terms of nicotine. Most vapers who were former smokers enjoy this level because it delivers the perfect amount of nicotine in each vape. This level is probably the best if you’re just giving us smoking.
My Nicotine e-Cig Liquid Level Is Too Strong?
When you inhale, does the back of your throat burn uncomfortably? Do you get dizzy or light headed after just a few drags? Do you get a headache after only a light session of vaping? If any of these things apply to you, chances are you’re using a nicotine level that’s higher than your body is used to. For some people, stepping back on the nicotine level, and buying a e-cig liquid that has a lesser mg/ml even just one level is enough to alleviate many of these symptoms. However, stepping back on your nicotine level is no guarantee that you’ll stop experiencing these symptoms.
