How Much Nicotine is in a NicShot?Ali
What is a Nicotine Shot?
Nic shots are also called nicotine boosters and are often sold in 10ml bottles. PG and VG are included to make a flavourless substance. This mixture can be put in nicotine-free e-liquids.
There are several different nicotine strengths you can get including 3mg, 6mg, 9mg, 15mg, and 18mg.
What about aShortfill?
A shortfillis an e-liquid bottle that can hold between 20ml and 100ml. The e-liquid is nicotine-free. These bottles also have added space for nic shots.
How Much Nicotine Should I Use?
This is entirely up to you and what you are used to. Everyone is different and will have slightly different preferences. This will largely depend on how regularly you smoked.
A rough guide is:
0mg/ml – for people who have not smoked or what to cut out nicotine.
3mg/ml – for light smokers or occasional smokers who want to cut down on nicotine.
6mg/ml – for moderate smokers who want to reduce their nicotine gradually.
12mg/ml+ – for heavy smokers who want to keep their nicotine levels stable.
The amount and strength of nicotine e-liquids is restricted in the UK. You’ll find that most bottle will be 10ml with a strength of 18mg. Luckily, most people pick one of 3mg, 6mg, or 12mg nicotine level which makes calculating amounts easy.
What do Nicotine Levels Mean?
The level of nicotine in an e-liquid is expressed in mg. People are sometimes a little confused because mg refers to the amount in each ml not the total amount included in the bottle.
The bigger the bottle, the more liquid you have, but the concentration of nicotine does not change. On occasion, nicotine strength will be labelled as a percentage.
What is 3mg Nicotine?
As discussed above, this indicates the strength of the liquid. 3mg refers to 3mg of nicotine per ml of liquid, regardless of how much liquid you have. This means the concentration does not change.
For example, a 10ml bottle will have 10mls of e-liquid. In ever ml there is 3mg of nicotine. In other words, there is 30mg of nicotine in the 10ml bottle.
This is the same for any other value of nicotine. If it is 6mg nicotine, every ml of e-liquid will contain 6mg of nicotine.
