    On average, about 0.65 to 1 gram of tobacco in an unlit cigarette, about 7.5 to 13.4 mg of nicotine.

    So the average pack contains about 204 mg of nicotine (20 cigarettes x 10.2 mg) – and some brands even more.

    But the question is not how many mg of nicotine is in a cigarette; the important thing is how much nicotine the smoker absorbs and 6mg vape juice equals how many cigarettes?

    Let's find out!


    According to Professor Bernd Mayer of the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at Karl-Franzens University Graz (Austria), smoking one cigarette leads to the absorption of about 2 mg of nicotine and increases blood levels by about 0.03 mg/L.

    UCLA professor Arthur Brody said that light cigarettes only allow us to absorb 0.6 - 1 mg of nicotine, and for regular cigarettes, 1.2 - 1.4 mg.

    By now, you've probably figured out the answer to the question, "How many cigarettes does 6 mg of vape juice equal?”

    This is how you can calculate the nicotine strength! =>


    Different amounts of nicotine are introduced into your system depending on the type of cigarettes you smoke. And just like vaping, 6mg of nicotine doesn't mean your body will absorb it all, so choose the one that works best for you.

    Assuming that the amount of nicotine in the smoke of a regular cigarette, i.e., the nicotine content of the smoke, is 1.1 mg per cigarette.

    So the nicotine level of the e-liquid is 6 mg/ml, then one ml of the e-liquid is approximately equal to the nicotine content of 5 cigarettes.


    The nicotine in a vape directly affects how the player feels. Whether you are just starting with vaping or have been using it for a long time, choosing the right vaping nic strength is very important.

    So you need to learn about the nicotine level in each type of vape juice to make the most suitable choice.

    Nicotine in vape juice is expressed in mg/ml or % (Example: 50mg/ml ⇔ 5%). This nic strength comes in many different levels like 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 15mg and many more.

    0mg/ml of nicotine

    This is a nicotine-free vape juice, suitable for women and Smoke Trickers who do not know how to smoke or have quit smoking. This type is almost ineffective for those who want to vape to quit smoking.

    3mg/ml of nicotine

    The taste experience is huge and does not cause a bitter taste in the mouth or a sore throat like traditional cigarettes.

    6mg/ml of nicotine

    At the level of 6mg, nicotine will help you experience a better taste of e-liquid that have a richer, fuller flavor.

    Light smokers, 6 mg vape juice equals from 5 to 10 cigarettes.

    12mg/ml of nicotine

    The feeling of smoking is not too heavy but still gives a fresh taste.

    The nicotine in vaping is 12mg/ml is suitable for those who smoke an average of 10 - 15 cigarettes.

    18mg/ml of nicotine

    18mg/ml is the standard nicotine level in every traditional cigarette. Therefore, if vaping has this level, it will be very suitable for people addicted to smoking who want to quit smoking and switch to vaping. 

    So, 18mg/ml of nicotine equals 15 - 20 cigarettes in overall. 

    24mg/ml of nicotine

    For traditional heavy smokers, smoking more than one pack/day will suit vaping with a 24mg/ml. This is said to be a high level, suitable only for the above subjects to support smoking cessation.

    24mg equals more than +20 cigarettes if you are concerned about this level. 

    36mg/ml of nicotine

    This is the highest level of nicotine content in vapes, only for traditional heavy smokers who smoke more than two packs.


    When choosing the nicotine level in a vape that doesn't suit your best, you may not be able to enjoy the taste and sensation that vaping brings fully.

    If you choose a nic strength that is too low, you will always be in a very uncomfortable and irritable state of craving.

    Where the nicotine exceeds the body's tolerance, you will feel some signs such as discomfort, dizziness, headache and a burning sensation in the throat immediately after smoking or coughing when you vape.

    At this point, you need to reduce the amount of nicotine strength.

    If you vape at night, go to bed, and wake up feeling a little dizzy in the morning, the cause is not due to excessive nicotine but just the feeling after a long sleep. This feeling will quickly disappear, so pay attention.
