The New Year is upon us, and we all know what that means – new year’s resolutions. Many of us will probably put down ‘quit smoking cigarettes’ or ‘cut down on nicotine’ on that list of resolutions, but how many of us will actually be able to tick it off? Going nicotine-free isn’t easy, and it’ll be even harder if you try to go completely cold turkey. But what if there was a way to make that process easier?
This is where nicotine-free vapes come into the picture. You might wonder what’s the point in vaping without nicotine, but zero nicotine e-liquids and vapes have started becoming more and more popular in recent years. Many people have found nicotine-free vapes to be extremely useful in helping to cut down on their nicotine consumption. But how does it work? And how can you get started? Don’t worry, our handy guide to zero nicotine vaping has everything you need to know.
What is nicotine-free vaping?
Nicotine-free vaping is when you vape using an e-liquid that doesn’t contain any nicotine. The e-liquid will be almost completely identical to normal vaping e-liquid, it will still be made of ingredients like propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, as well as different flavourings and sweeteners. The only difference, as its name suggests, is that zero nicotine vape juice contains no nicotine.
These days you’ll be able to find nicotine-free e-liquid in just as many flavour variations as normal vape juice. Whether you’re a fan of fruity flavours like strawberry or mango, prefer your vape juices with a hint of menthol, or miss the familiar smokiness of tobacco, it’ll be like vaping with your typical bottle of e-liquid (without any of nicotine’s drawbacks).
If you’re concerned about the safety of nicotine-free vaping, don’t worry. Zero nicotine vapes are far safer than cigarette smoking, and can actually be more beneficial than vaping with nicotine. We’ve written a whole blog about the safety of nicotine-free vaping, so if you’re interested in learning more we recommend having a read.
What are the benefits of nicotine-free vaping?
Zero nicotine vapes aren’t addictive
The most significant benefit of vaping without nicotine is that nicotine-free e-liquids are not addictive. Nicotine is the highly addictive substance present in cigarettes and many types of e-liquid, but the key difference between e-liquid and cigarettes is that nicotine is an optional ingredient in vape juice. This is why it’s actually quite easy to find e-liquids and disposable vapes that don’t contain any trace of nicotine at all. By removing it and vaping with only zero nicotine e-liquids you reduce any chance of your vape feeding your nicotine addiction.
Take a nicotine break while vaping
If you still want to enjoy vapes but are looking to take a nicotine break, nicotine-free e-liquids are great for this. We know it can be hard to break the habit of physically reaching for your vape to take a cheeky puff from it, but what if we told you there’s a way for you to keep vaping while staying away from nicotine? That’s exactly what zero nicotine vaping is, so instead of trying to break two habits at once you’ll still be able to enjoy your vape while you take a break away from nicotine.
Smoother vaping experience
This may surprise some of you, but some vapers actually prefer nicotine-free vaping as it can feel smoother compared to using e-liquids that contain nicotine. When vaping with e-liquid that contains nicotine, you’ll probably notice a bit of a head rush and a slight sensation in your throat – better known as a throat hit. While some vapers might enjoy these feelings, others might not. If you’re one of these people then going nicotine-free may solve this problem for you. Zero nicotine vapes are significantly smoother, which means you’ll get to enjoy the warm flavours of your vape juice without any of the irritating sensations.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with a guilt-free vape
We all know how tempting all the different e-liquid flavours can be. These days you’ll see vape juices that taste like strawberry ice cream, tobacco cream, banoffee pie, and other delicious flavours. This rich variety of flavours is a big part of why many people started, and have stuck with, vaping. In fact, you’ll find a lot of people who say that vaping has helped them cut down on their sugar intake. With zero nicotine vape juices, you can take this even further and reduce both your sugar and nicotine consumption while satisfying your sweet tooth.
How can I vape without nicotine?
Don’t worry about buying a completely new device to vape without nicotine, you can use any regular vape with your nicotine-free vape juice. But just like regular vaping, you’ll still need to make sure you’re using the right type of e-liquid for your device and preferred vaping style. So if you’re using a plus ohm mouth-to-lung vape then you’ll need to use a 50/50 or high PG e-liquid like the Aramax range of zero nicotine vape juices. On the other hand, if you have a sub-ohm vape or prefer direct-to-lung vaping then stick to high VG e-liquids such as shortfills.
If you’re used to vaping with shortfill e-liquids, you’re already halfway there. Shortfills contain no nicotine when you first buy them, and vapers can choose to mix in a nicotine shot to reach their desired nicotine strength. However, you can skip out on that nic shot and vape with the shortfill as is. Not only will you get a flavoursome, nicotine-free vape, but you’ll also save yourself the extra hassle of having to buy and mix in a separate nicotine shot. One of our favourite line of shortfills right now is Stax, a collection inspired by classic buttery stacks of pancakes paired with classic toppings like sugar and lemon or fresh blueberry.
These days you can also find disposable vapes that come pre-filled with zero nicotine e-liquid. Disposable vapes are a great option if you’re new to vaping, are an ex-smoker, or can’t really be bothered to buy a vape kit. Disposable vapes come pre-filled with vape juice so they’re ready to use straight out of the box. The great thing about these is that because they’re disposable, you don’t have to worry about any messy e-liquid refills once you’re finished. Just dispose of it responsibly and pick up a fresh disposable vape. Going nicotine-free couldn’t get any easier than this.
If you’re interested, you can also try out CBD vaping, which involves vaping using an e-liquid that contains CBD instead of nicotine. Just like nicotine-free vaping, you can start CBD vaping with either disposable or reusable vape devices. One of our go-to brands right now for CBD vaping is Darwin CBD. Their disposable vapes use the purest form of isolate CBD in its e-liquid with no traces of either THC or nicotine.
