In this blog, we will cover everything you need to know about nicotine levels, choosing the right strength for your needs, and important considerations for nicotine use.
Nicotine Strength in Mg/ML
eLiquid nicotine strengths are typically expressed in milligrams per milliliter (mg/mL). This indicates the amount of nicotine present in each milliliter of eLiquid within the bottle. For instance, a 6 mg/mL eJuice contains 6 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of eLiquid. To calculate the total amount of nicotine in a tank or bottle, simply multiply the mg/mL strength by the total amount of eLiquid in milliliters.
The Most Common Nicotine Strengths Available in the Market Today
If you have decided to switch from smoking to vaping, you may wonder which nicotine strength suits you. Well, the answer to this question depends on your vaping device and your smoking habits. The following are the most popular nicotine strengths currently available in the market:
- 50 (5%) mg
- 30 (3%) mg
- 20 (2%) mg
- 12 (1.2%) mg

- Moderate smoker (half a pack of cigarettes): 6 mg
- Heavy smoker (full pack of cigarettes): 12 mg
How to Choose the Right Nicotine Level
Knowing the right nicotine strength for you is crucial if you want to say goodbye to cigarettes permanently. Whereas cigarettes and vaping contain the nicotine compound, smoking may give you an elevated experience because of the presence of thousands of other chemicals in cigarettes.
Nicotine is the addictive chemical in cigarettes that prompts smokers to crave smoking, often resulting in an addiction after prolonged use. Vaping is an excellent substitute for smoking because it provides nicotine without exposing you to thousands of other harmful chemicals. Selecting the appropriate nicotine strength for your needs can help you give up smoking cigarettes for good. Too much nicotine will make you have a terrible vaping experience, while too little can make you return to your old smoking ways.
Before selecting your nicotine level, you should:
- First, take the time to know the difference between smoking and vaping
- Carefully evaluate your smoking habits
- Understand that vaping devices may affect the nicotine strength
Use Caution When it Comes to Nicotine
Keep in mind that due to other chemicals in cigarettes, smoking will provide you with an immediate high as opposed to vaping, where there is a slight delay in gratification. This is why many smokers feel vaping is not working for them, so they revert to cigarette smoking. If you have been contemplating using a vape pen as a means to gradually quit smoking cigarettes, it’s critical to understand that, in this scenario, you will be consuming nicotine from two different sources.
Smoking and vaping simultaneously can be detrimental to your health because you can easily overdose on nicotine. Here are the common signs of a nicotine overdose you should watch out for:
- Rapid breathing
- Muscle twitches
If you notice these signs of nicotine overdose, do not vape or smoke. Instead, drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated, as smoking and vaping quickly dehydrates the body. A tested and proven way to prevent this is to select a low nicotine level in the eLiquid until you decide to quit nicotine completely or are no longer dependent on the chemical throughout the day.
Partner With Daily Manufacturing for High-Quality eLiquids
One advantage of vaping over smoking is that vaping enables you to control the amount of nicotine in your eLiquid. Better still, you can select your preferred device to vaporize the nicotine. Conversely, cigarettes do not allow you to know or control the amount of nicotine you are letting into your system.
