How to Choose the Right E-Liquid
What is the right e-liquid for my device?
This is a frequent question for vape consumers starting their journey into vaping. Vape juice comes in a plethora of flavour points and nicotine strengths. If the consumer smokes a large amount of cigarettes in a day, a lower dose of nicotine would not work in their favour. There is no “one size fits all” answer to this question.
As a consumer, you may be wondering things like “what is the best nicotine strength for me?” Fret not, you are not alone. Dialing in the proper nicotine and flavour point is a mystery for a lot of consumers when they are starting out with vaping. In this post we will try to highlight and simplify the process a little bit!
Proper e-liquid and the proper dosage of nicotine constitutes the experience the consumer has. Without the right flavour/dose the consumer will not get the satisfaction they are looking for. The flavour is the most important piece of the puzzle when choosing your e-liquid. There are many different varieties of flavour points available in the market. Some examples: fruits, tobacco, confectionaries, sweets (all can be found with or without menthol). Find a flavour that suits your tastebuds and personal preferences. People looking to bridge the gap from smoking cigarettes will normally seek out a flavour created to mimic their preferred brand of cigarettes, while some may looks for a flavour completely opposite to that in order to make sure they don’t crave the flavour or taste of a regular cigarette.
My father-in-law was a smoker for over 40 years, when he decided to try vaping after nicotine patches and medications did not work for him. He chose a low dose freebase style nicotine in a pina colada flavour. He hasn’t touched a cigarette in three years and has even stopped vaping all together.
Vaping is a completely new frontier where you can select more flavour combinations than your mind could come up with. With time and experience you may find that your much more adventurous in your choosing. Make sure you start out with a flavour you are sure to enjoy and keep trying flavours until you dial in your personal preferences (sweetness, flavour profiles etc.) We all have a juice that is our holy trinity, mine personally is peach, mango, raspberry.

Nicotine dosage – How high, how low and how to know?
After finding a flavour profile you enjoy, you will need to decide what dosage of nicotine that suits you best. Most new consumers don’t really have much to think about when it comes to how much nicotine they are consuming per cigarette. Whereas with vapes, you need to select the dosage carefully. Ask your local vape shop to describe to you their most popular dose for newcomers. Or maybe even ask a friend that vapes. It is important to hear out other people’s experiences as this may play a large role in your expierence and it is always good to have an open mind.
The best thing about vaping is that consumers have control over the amount of nicotine they consume. Dependent on the device you choose to use, e-liquid can contain as little as no nicotine to as much as 50mg of nicotine per ml. The lower nicotine e-liquid gives a consumer a smoother, tastier experience.
