What is nicotine and what is its purpose?

Nicotine a stimulant which is the addictive substance that’s found within cigarettes. Quitting smoking can be often difficult without the use of nicotine as this causes the unpleasant physical and emotional symptoms while experiencing withdrawals.

However, if the liquid with high concentration of nicotine (e.g 50mg/ml, 75mg/ml, 100mg/ml), it becomes a poison due to its strength.

Note: you must dilute the high concentration of nicotine into lower concentration like 3, 6, 9, 12 mg/ml by adding small amount into the e-juice.

How can nicotine be used?

Below information from

0mg: Is the ideal option for those enjoying vaping absent nicotine or trying to quit nicotine.

3mg: Is commonly used by users of more “sub-Ohm” tank systems. Sometimes, it is because they just like vaping, and want to vape with great frequency (using more puffs to get the same amount of nicotine) Using a high nicotine strength e-liquid with a sub-Ohm atomiser has much more impact than it does through a standard starter kit/cartomizer.

6mg: Strength is generally a good starting option for those who are current moderate/light smokers and are planning to use a “tank” device or an atomiser.

12 -18mg: For heavy smokers especially if you are using a cartomizer (small compact vaporiser).

Our recommendation is to start lower and increase the strength if you don’t find it satisfying. Nicotine has a flavour all its own which will alter the true flavour of your e-Liquid.
