Best Vaping Alternatives for Camel Cigarette Smokers

Introduction to Camel Cigarettes

Camel cigarettes, introduced by the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in 1913, had been a significant player in the tobacco industry for over a century. Known for their unique blend of Turkish and domestic tobaccos, Camel cigarettes revolutionized tobacco advertising and processing. The innovative marketing strategies, including the use of “Old Joe,” a camel, as the brand’s mascot, and the distribution of free cigarettes, skyrocketed Camel’s popularity. Their affordability also contributed to their widespread acceptance, offering a price advantage over competitors​​​​.

Historical Background and Popularity

Camel’s introduction was a part of the tobacco boom in North Carolina during the late 1800s. With RJR at the forefront, the brand quickly gained national recognition due to its pleasant taste and effective advertising. This included the iconic slogan “The Camels are coming!” and the unique promotional tactic of driving circus camels into towns​​.

Design and Artwork of Camel Cigarettes

The design of Camel cigarettes, crafted by Fred Otto Kleesattel in 1913, is an integral part of its identity. The original artwork featured a dromedary camel against a backdrop of pyramids and palm trees, based on a photograph from the Barnum & Bailey Circus. This design has become synonymous with the brand and is recognized globally​​.

Varieties of Camel Tobacco Cigarettes

Camel cigarettes come in a variety of types to cater to different preferences. The classic Camel Filters are known for their rich, full-bodied flavor and are considered the cornerstone of the Camel brand. For those who prefer lighter smoke, Camel Blues offers a milder taste while retaining the unique Turkish and American tobacco blend that Camel is known for.

Camel also offers a range of flavored cigarettes. Camel Crush, for example, features a built-in menthol capsule in the filter that you can click to release a burst of cool freshness. For those who enjoy exotic flavors, Camel Infused cigarettes come with hints of vanilla, cherry, or coffee, providing a unique smoking experience.


Rich Camel Flavour in Every Puff

“Burley Tobacco” stands as a testament to what a tobacco e-liquid should embody: a clean, pure, and satisfying alternative.

Other varieties include Camel Turkish Gold, which blends Turkish and American tobaccos for an exotic allure, and Camel Turkish Jade, a menthol version introduced in 2001. The brand also has Camel Turkish Silvers, an ultralight version positioned in strength below Turkish Gold “lights” and “full flavor” Turkish Royal. Additionally, various Camel Crush and Camel Click cigarettes offer different smoking experiences with options for menthol flavor. For more detailed information about the different types of Camel cigarettes, you can visit the sources directly: Wikipedia’s page on ​​or the AP PGECET article that provides ​​a closer look at Camel cigarette varieties. 

Health Risks Associated with Cigarette Smoking

It’s crucial to understand the serious health risks of smoking. Smoking causes various diseases, including heart disease, emphysema, and various cancers. The addictive nature of nicotine in cigarettes makes quitting challenging, and there is no safe cigarette, regardless of its tar and nicotine content​​.

Resources for Quitting Smoking

Organizations like the FDA and CDC provide resources and support for individuals looking to quit smoking. Quitting smoking is a significant step toward a healthier lifestyle and has long-term health benefits.

Shift to Healthier Alternatives

Many smokers have shifted towards healthier alternatives like tobacco vaping. Black Note’s Virginia Tobacco E-Liquid is a leading choice in this area, offering a smoke-free option.

Burley 50/50 is my favorite of all juices tried over the last eight years, and it seems like I’ve tried them all in my quest to stop smoking stupid cigs. Black Note got me over the hump to quit smoking, and I feel great & smell way better. My devices run 14 to 21 watts with 50/50, smooth and rich. Thank You Black Note, Don J.

This unique trait, characterized by the white midrib in green Burley tobacco, is still a defining feature of the variety.

Nicotine Strengths: How to Choose What’s Right for You

Here are some general guidelines to help you choose the right nicotine salt strength:

Understand Nicotine Absorption Differences:

The nicotine absorption from vaping is slower and less direct compared to smoking. This means you might need a higher concentration in your vape juice to match the satisfaction you get from a cigarette.

Consider Your Smoking Habits:

  • Heavy Smokers: If you’re used to smoking Camel original blend, Red, Non-Filters, or similar which are considered strong cigarettes, you might want to start with a higher nicotine salt concentration. This could be in the range of 30-50 mg/mL. This higher concentration can more closely mimic the nicotine hit from these stronger cigarettes.
  • Moderate Smokers: If you’re a moderate Camel smoker of yellow, gold, and light 99s, or similar, you might find satisfaction with medium-range nicotine salt strengths, such as 20-30 mg/mL.
  • Light Smokers: For those who smoke Camel Ultra Lights, a lower nicotine salt concentration, like 20 mg/mL, might be sufficient.
  • Adjust Based on Experience: Start with a certain strength and then adjust based on your experience. If you find yourself vaping very frequently, you might need a higher strength. Conversely, if you experience symptoms of too much nicotine (like dizziness or nausea), you should try a lower strength.

Device Type Matters:

The type of vaping device you use can also influence the ideal nicotine strength. Pod systems such as the Aspire OBY and Vilter S, which are often used with nicotine salts, are efficient in nicotine delivery. 

The Black Note Natural Camel Tobacco eliquid or ejuice is designed for mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping, using Ultra-Low Wattage & Pod-Based Systems. It’s an excellent option for a smooth transition from smoking. 

We recommend not exceeding 15 watts and coils with a resistance of 0.8 ohms or higher will give you the best results.

Personal Preference and Goals

Consider your goals. Are you trying to replicate your smoking experience as closely as possible, or are you trying to reduce your nicotine intake? Your personal preference and goals will play a significant role in choosing the right strength.
