CURRENT SMOKER QUIZ

Find Your Perfect Vaping Setup

Answer just three simple questions in less than 15 seconds and receive a personalized recommendation to kickstart your transition to vaping! NOTE: If you are a vaper who has already quit smoking and is looking to switch to Black Note’s Natural Tobacco Vaping E-liquids, please take the Existing Vaper Quiz.

Quit Smoking

Choosing the right nicotine strength and formulation is crucial for a smoker transitioning to Black Note’s natural tobacco vaping liquids and a satisfying vaping experience. Let’s navigate this together.

STEP 1

Customize your vaping experience to match your smoking preferences.

SOCIAL SMOKERS

Super Ultra Lights

Super Ultra-Light, Social, or Occasional Smokers

For super ultra-light, social, or occasional smokers, particularly those who smoke up to 5 cigarettes a day, we suggest our 50VG/50PG blends in 0mg or 3mg freebase nicotine. These blends are crafted for a mild vaping experience. We do NOT recommend nicotine salts for this group, as they may be overly strong for such light smoking habits.

SILVER

Ultra Lights

Ultra Lights or Silver Label Cigarettes Users

For those used to the smoothness of Ultra Lights or Silver label cigarettes, our 20mg nicotine salt or 50vg/50pg blends in 3mg or 6mg freebase nicotine are your go-to options. These choices provide a smooth and satisfying vaping experience, closely mirroring the lightness of your usual cigarettes.

GOLD

Lights

Lights, Gold, Medium, Mild, or White Label Cigarettes Users

For those who prefer the balanced experience of Light, Gold, Medium, Mild, or White Label cigarettes, our 20mg to 30mg nicotine salt range is perfect. This range offers a well-balanced vaping experience, combining the right amount of throat hit, flavor, and nicotine to suit medium and moderate-strength smokers.

RED

Full Flavored

Full Flavor, Red, or Black Cigarettes Users

If you’re accustomed to the robust taste of Full Flavor, Red or Black cigarettes, our 30mg or 50mg nicotine salt is the ideal choice. It’s specifically designed to match the strong, rich experience of your preferred cigarettes, providing a deeply satisfying vaping experience.

STEP 2

Experimenting to Find Your Ideal Nicotine Level

Finding the right nicotine level might involve some experimentation. If you feel that a certain nicotine level is a bit too strong or too mild, consider trying another level, either one step higher or lower. Finding your perfect nicotine strength for the best satisfaction may take some trial and error.

STEP 3

Choosing the Right Device

Our recommended salt nicotine strengths for current smokers transitioning to vaping are ONLY compatible with ultra-low wattage pod-based systems, ensuring a vaping experience akin to cigarette smoking. Use MTL coils above 0.8 ohms and under 16-18 watts for a satisfying experience that aids in transitioning from cigarettes.

Finally! A liquid that actually tastes closer to a cigarette than anything else out there. Special Blend is smooth, not as sweet as most, clear, coil friendly, and delivers a good cloud with my Smok device. I am done wasting money on searching for a product that I like. Now…. What to do with all the rejects? There are many!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, many studies and personal experiences suggest that vaping can be an effective tool for quitting smoking. Vaping provides the nicotine that smokers are addicted to without the majority of harmful chemicals found in cigarette smoke. It also mimics the physical act of smoking, which can help satisfy the behavioral aspect of the addiction.

Choosing the right nicotine strength is crucial for a satisfying transition from smoking to vaping. If you're a heavy smoker (15-20 cigarettes a day), start with higher nicotine concentrations, such as 18mg/ml in traditional e-liquids or up to 50mg/ml in nicotine salts for a similar level of nicotine intake. Lighter smokers or those who smoked light cigarettes might prefer lower strengths, like 3-6mg/ml in freebase nicotine or 20-30mg/ml in nicotine salts. The key is to match your e-liquid's nicotine strength as closely as possible to your previous smoking habits to satisfy your nicotine cravings without overwhelming yourself.

Freebase nicotine provides a stronger throat hit and is absorbed more slowly than nicotine salts, which offer a smoother experience and faster absorption, ideal for those needing higher nicotine levels.

Start by choosing a nicotine strength and VG/PG formulation that matches your current vaping experience. Consider using lower nicotine concentrations if you're already comfortable with vaping and looking for a more authentic tobacco flavor. Gradually introduce natural tobacco e-liquids into your routine to adjust to the taste differences.

For a throat hit that closely mimics the sensation of smoking, a higher PG ratio is recommended. E-liquids with a PG/VG ratio of 50/50 or even 60/40 (PG/VG) provide a satisfying throat hit along with a good balance of flavor and vapor production. These ratios are ideal for former smokers looking to replicate the experience of smoking with their vaping devices.

For those new to vaping, simple and low-maintenance devices like pod systems or disposable vapes are recommended. These devices are user-friendly and mimic the sensation of smoking, making the transition easier.

Look for an e-liquid that closely mimics the flavor and strength of the tobacco you're used to. Starting with a medium nicotine strength might be a good balance if you're unsure.

Yes, many brands offer the same flavors across a range of nicotine strengths, allowing you to adjust your intake without sacrificing taste.

Yes, tobacco e-liquid can be an effective tool for quitting smoking by satisfying tobacco cravings without the harmful effects of burning tobacco.

If you're sensitive to PG, look for high VG e-liquids, typically labeled as 70VG/30PG or even max VG, which contain minimal to no PG. High VG e-liquids are smoother on the throat and less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions in PG-sensitive individuals. Be aware that high VG e-liquids are thicker and require compatible hardware, such as sub-ohm tanks and coils, for optimal performance.

Switching e-liquid flavors can help prevent or alleviate vaper's tongue, a condition where you become temporarily desensitized to the flavor of your vape juice. Rotating between different flavors or flavor profiles (e.g., from tobacco to fruit to dessert) can help keep your taste buds stimulated and reduce the likelihood of flavor fatigue.

Signs that you might be using the wrong nicotine strength include feeling unsatisfied after vaping (too low), experiencing headaches or dizziness (too high), or finding the throat hit either too harsh or too weak for your liking. If you encounter these issues, consider adjusting your nicotine strength up or down accordingly.

If you're a heavy smoker (more than a pack a day), start with higher nicotine concentrations (18-24 mg/mL). Light to moderate smokers may prefer lower strengths (6-12 mg/mL).

If your e-liquid tastes burnt, it's likely due to a burnt-out coil or insufficient wicking, causing the cotton to singe. Replace the coil or pod, ensure the new coil is properly primed with e-liquid before use, and allow sufficient time for the e-liquid to saturate the wick. Also, check that your device's wattage is set within the recommended range for your coil to prevent overheating.
