The nicotine in electronic cigarettes is present in liquid form. Liquid nicotine is filled in cartridges and attached to the e-cigarette. And since the nicotine vapour is what you inhale, you don’t actually ‘smoke’ an e-cigarette; the use of an e-cigarette is known as ‘vaping’. The liquid in e-cigarettes can be bough in a variety of flavours. The nicotine strength also varies across different electronic cigarettes. That is, you can choose the content of nicotine that you want in your e-cigarette.
The four nicotine strengths available for electronic cigarettes are
No/Zero nicotine: In this case, the nicotine content is zero milligrams per bottle. This is for people who don’t crave a nicotine fix but just want to enjoy the experience of smoking (vaping)
Light: The nicotine content here is about 4mg to 8mg. It is ideal for casual and light smokers. The experience is somewhat like smoking a Marlboro Ultra Light cigarette
Medium: The nicotine content in this case is about 10mg to 18mg. It works well for medium and light smokers. The experience is quite like smoking a Marlboro Light cigarette
High: Marlboro Red/B&H Gold smokers will find this highly satisfying. The nicotine content is about 18mg to 24mg, just about right as far as heavy smokers go.
The nicotine cartridge of an e-cigarette typically lasts about sixty to eighty puffs. But in the real world, this depends solely on your vaping habits. A high strength nicotine cartridge will need fewer puffs than its medium strength counterpart for a satisfactory experience. You can opt for the nicotine strength based on your personal smoking habits. That is, if you are a heavy smoker, then a high/full strength e-cartridge would work well. In a different scenario, if you are a light smoker but pressed for time and need a quick and satisfying nicotine fix between work and meetings, then you can meet this need with a few puffs of a full strength e-cigarette.
