5 Ways to Get More Nicotine When You Vape

For most of us, vaping is all about getting enough nicotine to stay smoke-free. But for vapers just switching from smoking it can be difficult to get the nicotine you’re looking for, especially if you’re using a simpler device. So if you’re struggling to make the switch because you can’t get a satisfying amount of nicotine, is there anything you can do about it? Do you need to upgrade to a more advanced device to get more nicotine? Is increasing the nicotine strength of your e-liquid all you can do?


The good news is that there are plenty of things you can try to get yourself more nicotine, and here are five approaches to try out:  


1 – Increase Your Power Setting/Switch to a Lower-Resistance Coil


In general, vaping at a higher power setting produces more vapor and gets you more nicotine. If you have a VW (variable wattage) mod or vape pen, this is really easy to do – just turn your wattage up and keep vaping. Most modern coils have a recommended wattage range printed on them, and you can approach the upper end of this limit to get more nicotine.


If you don’t have a VW e-cig of any type, you still might be able to increase the power you’re vaping at. Reducing the resistance of the coil is equivalent to increasing your wattage, so you might be able to get more power this way. The only limitation is the minimum resistance supported by your device, and you should make sure to check this before you vape, especially if you’re going to be using any sub ohm coils. This information is usually in your device’s manual, but you can usually find it online too.


2 – Take Longer Puffs


One very simple approach to getting more nicotine when you vape is to take longer puffs. On a basic level, if you take a longer puff you’ll inhale more vapor, and so you’d expect to get more nicotine per puff too. However, there is also some evidence of a direct link between puff length and absorbing more nicotine when you vape.


A study looked at the differences between experienced vapers and new vapers in terms of how they vaped and how much nicotine they got. This found that experienced users tended to absorb more nicotine, and also took longer puffs on average. This is one of the ways vaping is a bit different from smoking – you need to puff for longer to get more vapor rather than inhaling more sharply – and the more experienced vapers in the study knew this. If you’re still vaping as if you’re smoking, taking longer puffs could make a big difference.  


3 – Use a Higher-Strength E-Juice


This is the most obvious way to get more nicotine when you vape: choose a higher nicotine strength e-liquid. Here at Black Note, we offer 0, 3, 6, 12 and 18 mg/ml nicotine in our e-liquids, with the 12 and 18 mg/ml options being specifically intended for newer vapers and people with less powerful devices. If you’re not satisfied by your vaping experience, switching to a higher nicotine level will increase your throat hit, but it’s the best approach to solving your issue.


4 – Try Sub Ohm Vaping


Reducing your resistance will improve your vapor production and get your more nicotine even if you don’t get down to sub ohm levels, but there’s a reason sub ohm vaping is popular. Sub ohm tanks combine very low resistance coils (under 1 ohm by definition) with great airflow and efficient wicking to substantially improve your vapor production. If you’re unsatisfied by vaping and you’re willing to upgrade your equipment, getting a sub ohm tank and a mod is the best investment you can make. However, there are also some sub ohm vape pens on the market if you want something a bit simpler.


Most vapers reduce their nicotine level when switching to sub ohm vaping to compensate for how much more nicotine it gets you and to reduce the throat hit. You can try your current nicotine strength in the new setup, but if it’s too much nicotine or the throat hit is too strong, then try out a lower-nicotine e-juice.  


5 – Try Naturally Extracted E-Liquids: 


Finally, if traditional e-liquids don’t satisfy you even after following the tips in this post, there are some extra things you can try. Not all e-liquid is the same when it comes to nicotine. Some vapers find Naturally Extracted Tobacco (NET) e-liquids more satisfying than traditional types. These contain nicotine, but also other similar chemicals found naturally in tobacco, which accentuate and complement nicotine’s effects. If you’re really struggling to quit smoking, a NET e-liquid could make the difference for you.



If All Else Fails, Chain Vape


The tips in this post should give you enough ways to increase the amount of nicotine when you vape. However, if you’re still having problems there is something else you can do: just chain vape. If you’ve decided to vape because you’re concerned about the health risks of smoking, then returning to combusted tobacco shouldn’t be an option. It might not be ideal, but even if it means you have to vape a lot throughout the day, it’s still better than running all the risks associated with continued smoking.

What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-Liquid?

E-juice, also known as e-liquid or vaping liquid, is the liquid that’s placed in the vaping device and subsequently atomized into vapor. When you go to buy e-juice, you’ll notice it contains a mix of several ingredients. These typically include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), some type of flavoring, and nicotine.

VG and PG form the base of the e-liquid. VG is a component used in food and personal care products; its role in e-liquid is to create a thick, dense vapor. PG is another popular solvent used in a variety of everyday items. It carries the e-liquid flavor, provides the “throat hit,” and enhances the vaping liquid’s ability to soak into wicks or cartomizer materials.

Nicotine is an optional ingredient, often available in different levels. E-juice also contains some type of flavoring.

Black Note leads the pack of tobacco vaping liquid by using only natural flavoring – extract from real tobacco leaves to produce real tobacco taste. When you go to buy e-juice from other companies, you may find any number of chemicals used to create synthetic flavors that include fake strawberry, manufactured vanilla, and even man-made tobacco flavors.

If your aim when you buy e-liquid is to experience the subtle nuances, genuine flair and authentic taste of real tobacco, then you’ll be on the mark if you buy e-juice from the Black Note lineup.

Best E-Juice

When you’re going to buy e-liquid, it’s only natural you’ll want the best e-liquid. But what, exactly, does it “best e-juice” mean? We’ll tell you.

For starters, you’ll want an e-juice that doesn’t contain all kinds of strange chemicals and concoctions that you can’t even pronounce. True, even the best e-liquid will contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and proplene glycol (PG), which serve as the base of e-juice, but you don’t necessarily need a host of other chemical compounds.

The best e-juice will stick to natural ingredients, like real tobacco extract, rather than rely on synthetic flavorings, colorings and other additives. Diacetyl is one of those synthetic ingredients that has gotten a pretty bad rap, although its use is not all that uncommon for producing sweet e juice flavors.

Definitely read the ingredient list before you buy e-juice to ensure you recognize what’s on it. Better yet, see if the e-juice company offers a lab report to confirm what’s actually inside the e-liquid.

In addition to having as few chemical ingredients as possible, the best e-juice will have an amazing taste. For those who enjoy authenticity over imitation, the most amazing taste is the most natural taste, especially when it comes to tobacco. Since Black Note uses real extract from tobacco leaves, we not only avoid all those weird chemical flavorings, but we also produce the most authentic experience: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco.

Vape Juice Ingredients

Vape juice ingredients can be pretty straightforward – or not. At the very least, most vape juice contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and some type of flavoring. Nicotine has largely become an optional ingredient that can be included at varying levels or left out altogether.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are usually the two main ingredients that make up the base of most vape juice.

VG is a plant-based substance with the ability to produce a dense, thick vapor. PG is an additive found in many food items and certain medicines. It carries the flavoring, provides the “throat hit” and enhances the vape juice’s ability to soak into the wicking materials.

Nicotine levels can vary, as can ingredients that make up the flavorings. The components that make up vape juice flavoring are where ingredients can get rather complicated.

Vape juice that relies on artificial flavorings can contain any number of extraneous chemicals and other additives, whatever it takes to recreate the flavor the ecig juice is going for.

Black Note uses only natural flavorings: extract from real tobacco leaves. That keeps our ingredient list incredibly simple, backed by a lab report to prove it. You won’t find any strange chemical concoctions used to produce our tobacco flavor, just real tobacco extract that delivers a real tobacco experience.

What is the Best Flavor for Ecig Juice?

From strawberry shortcake to banana rum, ecig juice comes in tons of flavors. While folks can debate and discuss all the fruity, sweet or food-like flavors all day long, the best flavor for e-cig liquid is straight-up tobacco.

Why? Vaping was originally created as an alternative for traditional cigarettes, mainly for those who enjoy the taste of tobacco. And when you can find an e-cig liquid that is able to recreate tobacco’s full-bodied yet delicate flavor notes and nuances, but without the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, then you’ve found the best ecig juice.

Recreating tobacco’s complex flavor isn’t easy, especially when it’s attempted with artificial ingredients. That’s why Black Note sticks to the real thing, extracting the essence of real tobacco leaves to flavor our vaping liquid. Not only does this avoid the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, but it also eliminates the flavoring chemicals found in many ecig juices. The end result is real tobacco taste, an authentic tobacco experience and the best flavor for ecig juice you can find.

Notice also we said the best e-cig flavor was straight-up tobacco, not plain old tobacco. Black Note’s real tobacco vaping liquid happens to come in a variety of different blends, from the light and airy to the peppery and robust. Not all tobacco is created equal, and different blends capture the specialized subtleties that make each tobacco unique.

Best Sweet Tobacco E-Juice

When it comes to sweet tobacco e-juice, your options can be broken down into two categories.

The first category contains tobacco e-juice that overlays the tobacco flavor with artificial chocolate, caramel, vanilla, fruity or other dessert-like flavorings. We wouldn’t classify any such flavors as the best tobacco e liquid, simply because they typically use chemicals and other artificial ingredients to create the tobacco taste, the sweet taste, or both.

The second category of sweet tobacco e-juice is where you’ll find the best tobacco e-liquid, sweet or otherwise. This category contains vaping liquid created using only natural flavorings, which is exactly where Black Note fits in. Instead of concocting flavors using synthetic ingredients, Black Note uses an extensive extraction process that slowly and deliberately extracts the tobacco essence from real tobacco leaves.

The result is the best tobacco e-juice: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. And if you’re going for the best sweet tobacco e liquid, we have a few tobacco blends that offer varying levels of sweetness.

Prelude is our sweetest tobacco e-liquid, containing golden Virginia tobacco. Made from fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, Sonata is our Cavendish blend with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. Solo is our menthol blend, giving you a semi-sweet minty taste created from natural menthol crystals extract from dried mint leaves.

For the best tobacco e-liquid that’s naturally sweet and remarkably delicious, Black Note is at your service.
