Getting Your E-Cigarette Nicotine Strength Just Right

E-smoking specialists at VaporFi discuss best practices for changing your e-juice's nicotine level

Remember the fairytale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears? A little girl named Goldilocks wanders into a house in the middle of the forest where she finds three bowls of porridge sitting on the table. The first bowl of porridge is too hot, the second too cold, but the third bowl is juuust right.

While we don't normally use child's tales to describe electronic smoking, this analogy was just the right tool for talking about the subject of nicotine strength in your e-juice.

Too much nicotine in your e-cigarette juice can overload your body with an intense throat that is much stronger than what you're likely used to. However, too little nicotine and you end up with an e-cigarette that tastes bland and leaves you unsatisfied.

For most e-smokers, the ideal nicotine strength lies somewhere in the middle. But as Goldilocks discovered, finding just the right balance can be tricky business.

One of the many great customizable features of VaporFi e-juices is the freedom to decide your nicotine strength for each flavor added to your custom blend. We offer several nicotine levels to choose from:

  • Bold (3.6%)
  • Full Flavor (2.4%)
  • Regular (1.8%)
  • Light (1.2%)
  • Ultra Light (0.6%)
  • No Nicotine (0.0%)

What's the right level?

For newbies, we typically recommend they start with Regular (1.8%). This strength closely resembles traditional cigarettes and provides a good middle-of-the-road mix of both strong flavor and the type of throat hit you may be accustomed to.

For the experienced electronic smoker who is something of a connoisseur of good nicotine e-juices and who enjoys the intense throat hit, go for the Bold or Full Flavor options. New e-smokers who previously used strong cigarettes like Marlboro Reds or American Spirits might also consider starting out with these more concentrated nicotine juices.

On the contrary, if you prefer lighter strength cigarettes or the throat hit of your current e-juice is too strong, then try going with the Light or Ultra Light options.
We also have completely nicotine-free e-juice for the electronic smoker who wants to experience the feel and delicious taste of e-smoking without ingesting any nicotine.

Of course, while these recommendations are a good starting point for those who are fairly new to e-smoking, every person will have their own idea of what the perfect e-cigarette tastes like. Ultimately, determining the best nicotine strength for you may take some trial and error.

Tips for choosing your nicotine strength

While you may have to play around a little to find the nicotine level that is just right, here are a few words of advice to help make the process easier:

  • Start slow. Most health professionals agree that the best strategy to follow when choosing an alternative nicotine product is to find one that contains close to the same amount of nicotine you may obtain through other means. That way, you lessen your body's shock and increase the likelihood of a successful adoption of e-cigarettes.

  • Don't skip levels. If you've been using Regular nicotine juice, don't jump immediately to Bold. We suggest you adjust the nicotine level slowly by going up or down one level at a time. For instance, for a stronger throat hit, try Full Flavor first before you skip up to Bold.

  • Be adventurous. Before you get settled on one particular nicotine strength, try out a couple different levels first. You'll never know if you can improve your e-smoking experience even more unless you open your horizons and try new things.

And of course, if you ever have any questions about your nicotine strength, e-juice or e-cigarette in general, feel free to give us a call and talk with one of our friendly customer service reps. Or you can also stop by one of our retail locations and talk to one of our expert "Vapologists" in person.
