One of the best parts of vapes is the ability to choose your own nicotine strength. And that includes zero nicotine as an option too! Although some vapers don’t understand why someone would want to vape without nicotine, there are several reasons why people choose non-nicotine vapes.
Plenty of vapers begin vaping with the goal of weaning off nicotine until they reach zero, using vapes to quit smoking and to break the addiction to nicotine. Yet, some continue vaping without nicotine even after weaning off cigarettes, likely because of the familiarity of the hand-to-mouth action.
There are plenty of options for nicotine-free vapes…and plenty of reasons to choose them.
Unlike e-juice that has nicotine, the ingredients in e-liquid without nicotine are almost always food-grade. If you have reason to fear spills or bottles of nic liquid getting into the wrong hands, zero nicotine e-juice would pose no known threat. Sure, a fraction of a minority might be allergic to one of the ingredients, but that’s just a hazard of having an allergy, and not specific to vape juice.
Avida offers their signature CBD blends in disposable format! Each vape is bursting with flavor and contains 300 mg of maximum purity pharmaceutical-grade CBD isolate. They are thoroughly tested by a third party lab for quality and consistency. The flavors range from fruits to tangy candy like mango and blue razz.
Even though a non-nicotine vape doesn’t have the toxicity of nicotine, it’s a smart practice to keep all vapes out of the reach of children and pets—especially if there are other vapes nearby that have nicotine or other drugs. You wouldn’t want to get the two confused! Also, know that the absence of nicotine’s toxicity does not mean absolute safety to inhale into your lungs. Those are actually separate matters.
There’s no addictive substance in a vape with 0 mg nicotine ejuice.
It’s a simple truth. If nicotine is the addictive substance, potential addictiveness leaves with it. And it’s not even like the case of decaffeinated coffee, where caffeine was only mostly removed. Nicotine is an additive to vapes. An optional ingredient.
However, the FDA-mandated labeling requirements allow only two labels for e-juice, whether it’s got nicotine in it or not. These are the only choices:
That’s not a joke! Both are demonstrably false statements for non-nicotine vape juice. And oddly misleading and confusing to the consumer. Imagine trying to tell your wife that you really have quit nicotine, but she reads the bold disclaimer on your e-liquid.
Setting aside isolated cases of mislabeling and manufacturing mishaps, which can happen in every industry, the fact is that non-nicotine e-juice is not made from tobacco and does not contain nicotine. Therefore it’s not chemically addictive, no matter what type of spin is put on it.
It’s not uncommon for nicotine users to accidentally go overboard from time to time, especially when they’re just learning their limits. It’s not a comfortable feeling unless you’re into feeling dizzy. It might make you temporarily lethargic, speedy, buzzed, or plain ol’ sick. But sometimes you still want to vape, even if your body is saying “no mas nicotine!”
Zero nicotine e-liquid means none. Nada! With 0 mg juice, you can keep on vaping and give your system a total break. Take more hits without having to absorb more nicotine.
The CUBE disposables have a nicotine-free option, which is very rare in the world of disposable vapes. Each CUBE device holds 11 mL of e-liquid and features adjustable airflow and a large battery that lasts for over 3000 puffs. CUBE disposables come in 20 flavors and are also available in 5% nicotine strength.
For a surprising number of vapers out there—and I’ve met many that say this—vaping helps them reduce mindless sugar consumption or even just snacking in general. Depending on your situation, that could be beneficial to your health—not vaping itself, but not mindlessly eating.
Ask a diabetic vaper how incredible it is to vape a flavor they can’t safely eat! Furthermore, nicotine doesn’t have to be involved to get that benefit. Vaping sweet flavors without nicotine can still satisfy cravings, in arguably a safer way than eating sugar. Of course, there may be unknown risks to vaping nicotine-free ejuice, but the devastating health effects of sugar are facts.
A fact of the market is non-nicotine e-juice doesn’t sell as well as nicotine-based liquid. That’s why vape shop bargain bins often have several bottles of it on sale.
Beard Vape Co. No.71 is a mouth-watering blend of sweet and sour notes over peaches. Although the name and the packaging don’t suggest it, No.71 triggers memories of sweet peach gummy candies layered in sour dust. No.71 is a flavorful and refreshing e-liquid that holds up well to vaping with zero nicotine.
Even if you prefer vaping with nicotine, go ahead and buy that cheap bottle of nic-free juice that caught your eye. Especially if you already vape low-strength juice! If you end up liking that flavor, but you want it with nicotine, you can buy another bottle of that same flavor and mix the two.
For instance, if you normally vape 3 mg/mL and you bought a discounted bottle of 0 mg/mL, buy that flavor again at 6 mg/mL. Mix equal parts of them together, and you’ll be at 3 mg/mL. Bullseye! It’s an amazing cost-saving hack. Depending on how cheap the discount was on the zero nic, it’s conceivable that you’d be near BOGO prices for two bottles. I’ve seen big bottles of zero nic for as cheap as a dollar.
Nicotine can be felt when you vape it. Not only can you feel nicotine in your head and body, but you can also feel it when it hits your throat. It’s called “throat hit.” It’s a sensation like a thump to the throat or a hit to the chest. While many vapers love that feeling and can’t vape without it, some don’t like it. Nicotine-free vape juice is smooth and barely felt when going down. The user can enjoy the flavor and warmth and still blow out clouds, but without the nicotine sensation tickling and irritating the throat.
There are other things to vape besides nicotine ejuice or even nicotine-free ejuice. For example, CBD and other cannabis products come in vape pens and look no different than vape pens with nicotine. It’s also possible to vape legal herbs and botanicals.
What really separates vapes is what goes in them…or even what doesn’t. Most CBD that gets vaped consists of CBD isolate, PG/VG, and flavors. Zero nicotine e-juice is the exact same thing minus the CBD. Same flavors and same PG/VG. CBD vape juice is like nicotine-free vape juice with added cbd, despite the perception that it’s a totally different thing.
So if you’re able to get past the idea of vaping always involving nicotine, you’ll increase your options of products to try. Just use good judgment when choosing, and steer clear of novelty products promising miracle cures with ridiculous supposed health benefits.
