If You Are A Smoker

Most smokers who've switched to vaping normally start off using an e-cig since they require a much higher level of nicotine that is similar to the type of cigarette they used to smoke. Smokers usually start out with 1.8% or 18mg nicotine, be it in a high-PG e-juice or in a disposable e-cigarette. Please note: We recommend that smokers start off with high-PG vaping juice for throat hits like cigarettes.

Casual or light smokers should consider trying lower nicotine levels of high-PG vaping liquids. Our signature Premium and WOW juice comes in seven different nicotine levels, including 0.8%/8mg and 0.4%/4mg, that are ideal for light smokers.

With plenty of options to choose from, finding the perfect nicotine strength should not be a problem, even if you are a heavy smoker. People who smoke quite heavily tend to enjoy a nicotine strength of 10.1mg or higher. We offer 36mg, 24mg, and 18mg as well, strengths that are perfect if you are used to smoking fully-flavored cigarettes.

If you are a Vaper

If you have been vaping for some time now but still want to enjoy that feeling of smoking a cig, then consider using a higher nicotine strength with high-resistance coils and low-wattage mod to get the throat hit you crave for.

If you use a box mod to vape, consider filling your tank with a high-VG vaping juice with a lower nicotine strength, more so if you are sub-ohm vaping. The same applies for RDAs, and high wattage mods since too much power could create a much higher nicotine level that may end up giving you an unforgiving throat hit.

If you do not want nicotine

If you do not want any nicotine, then you will be glad to know that there are e-liquid makers like Simply E-Liquid, and others, who sell zero-nicotine vaping juices. These vaping liquids are best for smokers who've tapered their nicotine intake down but want to maintain the hand to mouth process of smoking. These juices are also great for casual vapers who do not want to consume any nicotine.
