Best Vaping Alternatives for Marlboro Smokers

Hello, Marlboro Smokers!

In the quest for a healthier lifestyle, many Marlboro smokers like you are on the lookout for a satisfying alternative. The challenge? Actively seek an option that matches your familiar experience. The vaping market overflows with e-liquids (also known as vape juices, e-juices, vaping oils, and e-cig liquid) promising the authentic taste of tobacco, yet often they disappoint, providing flavors far from satisfying.

The Problem in the Vaping Space

For long-time Marlboro enthusiasts ready to make a change, the journey is often marred by e-liquids that miss the mark. Many products in the vaping world offer artificial flavors that taste nothing like the real deal, leading to disappointment and frustration. This gap in the market is precisely where Black Note steps in.

A meticulously crafted e-liquid that brings you the genuine taste of tobacco, reminiscent of Marlboro, but without any artificial ingredients.

Virginia Tobacco E-Liquid vs. Marlboro Cigarettes

Natural Virginia Tobacco E-Liquid: A Safer, Controlled Experience

  • No Combustion: Our e-liquids, featuring Natural Virginia Tobacco flavor, are used in e-cigarettes that heat the liquid to create vapor, not smoke. This vaping process avoids the combustion of tobacco, thereby not producing the harmful byproducts associated with burning tobacco.
  • Fewer Harmful Chemicals: With no tobacco combustion, vaping our Natural Virginia Tobacco e-liquids significantly reduces the number of harmful chemicals inhaled. The vapor contains far fewer toxins and carcinogens compared to traditional cigarette smoke.
  • Controlled Nicotine Delivery: Our nicotine salts e-liquid is formulated with varying levels of nicotine, offering a smoother experience. This allows for more controlled nicotine intake than cigarettes, where nicotine content is fixed and varies by brand and type.
  • Flavor and Experience: We aim to replicate the familiar flavor profile of traditional tobacco, making the switch from smoking to vaping more appealing and less jarring for Marlboro smokers.

Marlboro Cigarettes: Traditional, But with Higher Risks

  • Combustion Process: Marlboro cigarettes involve burning tobacco, creating smoke laden with a complex mixture of toxic chemicals.
  • High Number of Harmful Chemicals: Burning Marlboro cigarettes produces over 6,000 chemicals, many of which are harmful, including at least 69 known carcinogens like acetone, ammonia, arsenic, and benzene.
  • Fixed Nicotine Content: The nicotine content in Marlboro cigarettes is predetermined, leading to inconsistent nicotine delivery and making it challenging for smokers to gradually reduce nicotine intake.
  • Traditional Tobacco Flavor: Known for their specific tobacco blend, Marlboro cigarettes offer a distinct flavor and smoking experience, which can make switching to alternatives challenging for those accustomed to this taste.

We start with organically grown, flue-cured Virginia tobacco leaves, carefully selected for their color and quality – ranging from lemon yellow to deep mahogany. Each leaf undergoes a natural extraction process, perfectly preserving its unique aroma. The result? A mellow, mildly sweet tobacco profile that’s not just authentic – it’s a testament to the art of natural tobacco taste.

I was that person who always said I would NEVER quit smoking. I was willing to die from cigarettes. Until my son had me try Black Notes Virginia Tobacco, it blew my mind!! I felt just like I was drawing on a Marlboro! The flavor was amazing! I got a nice throat hit. This juice replaced my cigarette! I thought I’d die from smoking a Marlboro. Now I don’t even cough anymore! And my son, he doesn’t smell like a cigarette anymore either!! I love this stuff!

Nicotine Strengths: Finding Your Perfect Match

Transitioning from smoking to vaping brings its challenges, especially when it comes to choosing the right nicotine salt strength. As you explore smoking alternatives, these quit-smoking tips, including choosing the right nicotine strength, can be instrumental in your journey. For Marlboro smokers, whether you prefer Gold (lights), Silver (ultra lights), or Red (full flavor), understanding the nicotine content in cigarettes versus e-liquids is crucial.

Marlboro cigarettes contain between 7.5 and 13.4 milligrams of nicotine, as per Penn State University’s testing. However, the body absorbs nicotine differently from cigarettes compared to vaping. Professor Bernd Mayer from the University of Graz notes that smoking a single cigarette typically results in the absorption of about 2 mg of nicotine. In contrast, Arthur Brody of UCLA points out that lighter cigarettes deliver between 0.6 and 1.0 mg of nicotine, while regular cigarettes provide about 1.2 to 1.4 mg per cigarette. For a deeper dive, refer to studies and articles available at NCBI and UCLA Newsroom.

Match Your Vaping to Your Smoking Style

Heavy Smokers (Marlboro Red or Full Flavor): If you’re used to smoking Marlboro Reds, 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. Click here to view options.

Moderate Smokers (Marlboro Gold or Lights): Marlboro Golds are lighter compared to Reds. If you’re a moderate smoker, you might find satisfaction with medium-range nicotine salt strengths, such as 20-30 mg/mL. Click here to view options.

Light Smokers (Marlboro Silver or Ultra Lights): For those who smoke Marlboro Silvers, which are even lighter, a lower nicotine salt concentration, like 20 mg/mL, might be sufficient. Click here to view options.

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 in Vaping

The choice of your vaping device significantly influences the ideal nicotine strength for your needs. Pod systems, like the Aspire OBY and Aspire Vilter S, are known for their efficient nicotine delivery, especially when used with nicotine salts. Black Note’s Natural Virginia Tobacco e-liquid, or e-juice, is specifically tailored for mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping, making it a perfect match for Ultra-Low Wattage & Pod-Based Systems. This setup is ideal for those transitioning from smoking, offering a smooth experience. For optimal results, we recommend using devices not exceeding 15 watts and coils with a resistance of 0.8 ohms or higher.

Personal Preference and Goals: Key to Your Vaping Journey

Your journey in vaping is deeply personal, and your goals play a crucial role in determining the right nicotine strength. Are you aiming to closely replicate your smoking experience, or is your objective to gradually reduce your nicotine intake? Understanding your personal preferences and objectives is essential in selecting the nicotine strength that aligns with your vaping journey.


New to Vaping or Black Note?

Whether you're transitioning from smoking to vaping or seeking an upgrade to natural tobacco e-liquids, Black Note has you covered. Our quick, 15-second quiz and comprehensive guide are tailored to help both smokers and current vapers discover their ideal natural vaping alternatives.


Black Note’s Natural Virginia Tobacco e-liquid, used in vaping, presents a substantially less harmful alternative to Marlboro cigarettes. It offers the benefits of avoiding tobacco combustion, reducing harmful chemical inhalation, allowing controlled nicotine intake. Thus providing a flavor that closely mimics traditional tobacco. In contrast, Marlboro cigarettes involve tobacco combustion, resulting in a higher presence of toxic substances, fixed nicotine content, and a traditional tobacco flavor experience.

What are Nicotine Salts?

Nicotine salts are created by adding an acid, typically benzoic acid, to freebase nicotine. This process forms a more stable molecule, resulting in nicotine that’s closer to its natural state in tobacco leaves. The addition of acid lowers the nicotine solution’s pH level, leading to a smoother throat hit when inhaled, making higher nicotine concentrations more tolerable and less harsh.

Why Nicotine Salts are Effective for Quitting Smoking

  • Smoother Experience: The lower pH of Natural Virginia Tobacco nicotine salts eliquid provides a smoother throat hit, allowing for higher nicotine concentrations without harshness. This is particularly satisfying for smokers accustomed to stronger cigarettes.
  • Rapid Absorption: Nicotine salts are absorbed into the bloodstream faster than freebase nicotine, offering a sensation akin to the instant hit from a cigarette. This quick absorption is beneficial for recent quitters, as found in a study published in “Drug and Alcohol Dependence” (Hajek et al., 2017).
  • Higher Nicotine Levels: The ability to use higher nicotine concentrations in e-liquids without harshness means that Marlboro smokers can get a nicotine level similar to what they’re used to, which can help manage cravings more effectively. Research in “Nicotine & Tobacco Research” suggests that the use of nicotine salts in e-cigarettes can deliver nicotine more efficiently and with less irritation compared to freebase nicotine (Bowen & Xing, 2015).

Tobacco Harm Reduction: A Strategy for Healthier Choices

Tobacco harm reduction is a strategy to lessen the harmful impacts of cigarette smoking, a major cause of preventable illnesses. The appeal of smoking lies in the flavors from tobacco and the presence of nicotine. However, burning tobacco releases over 6,000 chemicals, with approximately 100 recognized as disease contributors.

E-cigarettes and nicotine salt formulations have become significant in tobacco harm reduction discussions. The UK, for example, encourages smokers to switch to e-cigarettes as a less harmful alternative. While concerns about long-term effects persist, evidence suggests e-cigarettes have contributed to declining smoking rates in the UK, as discussed in a CNN article.

Academic research supports the effectiveness of e-cigarettes and nicotine salts in smoking cessation. A study in “Nicotine & Tobacco Research” (Bowen & Xing, 2015) found that nicotine salts deliver nicotine more efficiently than freebase nicotine. Another study in “Drug and Alcohol Dependence” (Hajek et al., 2017) concluded that e-cigarettes are more effective than nicotine patches or placebo e-cigarettes in aiding smoking cessation.

Furthermore, the “Harm Reduction Journal” published an insightful article by Etter & Hughes in 2012, providing a comprehensive overview of tobacco harm reduction strategies. This article delves into the ethical and scientific considerations of tobacco harm reduction and the evolution of nicotine dependence. Offering valuable insights into the broader context of smoking cessation (Tobacco Harm Reduction Strategies).

I was a smoker for 35 years (Marlboro lights, 1/2 pack a day). Quit once for 6 months. On a whim, I tried vaping and read reviews on Black Note. The Virginia flavor is really similar. I am amazed at how much I love it! I haven’t smoked a cigarette in a month, no withdrawals, no smell, no regrets. It has great taste and throat hit. Wish I had found this sooner!
