How is E-Juice Nicotine Strength Measured?

So you want to make the transition from combustible cigarettes to e-cigs, but you aren’t quite sure about nicotine levels? We know the feeling! The truth is, we’ve all been there. However, there is no reason to be daunted since determining nicotine strength is pretty standard across different kinds of e-liquid, and it couldn’t be easier to figure out what the different measurements mean, once you get the hang of it.

Nicotine Level Displayed as mg/mL

The most common way nicotine levels are displayed is in milligrams (weight) per milliliter (volume), or mg/mL. It means that for every milliliter of e-juice, there is the amount of nicotine listed. For instance, 12mg/mL means that there are 12 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of vape juice. From there, all you have to do is multiply the milligrams by the milliliters. So, for instance, if you’re purchasing a 10mL bottle of our delectable Creme De Menthe E-Juice and have selected the 12mg/mL nicotine strength option, it means that the total bottle would contain 120 mg of nicotine. Simple!

Another way that nicotine is measured by percentage. It may say, for example, 1.2% nicotine. That means that the bottle or cartridge contains 1.2% nicotine, and the rest would be a mix of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and flavorings.

If you find percentages easier to grasp and want to convert from mg/mL to this measurement, just shift the decimal point once to the left. Let’s look at another example; say you’re purchasing the 12mg option of our flavorful Hazelnut E-Juice, shifting the decimal point once to the left would mean that your e-liquid contains 1.2% nicotine.

Importance of Understanding Nicotine Strengths

Why is choosing the right nicotine level for you important? Well, the answer is obvious. Many e-cigarette users start vaping because it is a much safer alternative to combustible cigarettes. If, after you’ve moved to e-cigs, you choose a level of nicotine that is lower than what you were used to as a regular smoker, your body may well notice the difference. Because the nicotine level is lower, you might end up vaping more than you used to smoke. Ultimately, this could make you think that e-cigs aren’t working for you and move back to combustibles.

Alternatively, trying an e-cig with too high a level of nicotine can cause you to feel light-headed or hurt your throat, which may put you off e-cigs. Therefore, understanding how nicotine strength is measured and how to select the correct nicotine level is crucial to your vaping experience.
