E-Liquid comes in many different nicotine strengths, so it is important to know what strength is right for you. Figuring it out might take some trial and error but here are some solid starting points.


It is important to understand how nicotine in liquid is measured. Nicotine in e-liquid is expressed by milligrams (mg) of nicotine per milliliter (ml) of e-liquid. Some brands will present it as mg/ml, and others will use a percentage. Some common nicotine levels are: 3 mg/ml (0.3 %), 6 mg/ml (0.6 %), 12 mg/ml (1.2 %), and so on.


What is the right dosage for you? E-liquid containing high amounts of nicotine can be harsh on the throat and cause nicotine sickness. Figuring out the right dosage is all about balancing the right amount of nicotine with the e-liquid you feel comfortable vaping. A good starting point for a regular smoker switching to vaping would be an e-liquid that contains 12 to 18 mg/ml. Some who uses chewing tobacco and is switching to vaping might want to start at a lower dose such as 3 to 6 mg/ml. Start at a lower dose and increase the strength as you see fit.


Frequency also affects dosage.  If you want to puff on a vape consistently, then a lower nicotine level such as 3 to 6 mg/ml would be good for you. Consider how much you want to be vaping.


Remember that nicotine can be addictive and many people vape e-liquid that contains no nicotine simply to enjoy the flavor and ritual of vaping. If you are using vaping to try and quit smoking, start at a low nicotine strength and eventually switch to nicotine free e-liquid. Nicotine is absorbed in the body so every smoker has a different absorption rate. Find your favorite e-liquid preference at Denver Electronic Cigarettes in Aurora and Denver.
