How does one choose the nicotine content?

The choice of nicotine content in the e-liquid is very important since it affects the effectiveness of withdrawal.

Here are a few recommendations of a general nature:

  • For heavy smokers (+ 15 cigarettes per day), it is best to opt for the higher contents: between 12 and 16 mg/ml of nicotine.
  • Between 10 and 15 cigarettes per day, opt for a content of 9 to 12 mg/ml of nicotine.
  • Between 5 and 10 cigarettes per day, opt for a content of 6 mg/ml of nicotine.
  • For fewer than 5 cigarettes per day, opt for 3mg/ml of nicotine or even 0 mg/ml.

These values are not fixed. It is still imperative to test several different contents and to consult a professional, to find a suitable solution. We advise testing the lowest nicotine contents so that the user may evaluate the sensation of his hit in several stages.

The choice of material is also decisive. For example, a very powerful device will vapourise more e-liquid and therefore more nicotine than a less powerful device. Thus, vaping in 3mg/ml with a very powerful device may correspond to vaping in 6mg/ml with less powerful material.
