6 Reasons to Use a Nicotine-Free Vape

One of the best things about vaping is the amount of freedom you have when it comes to your vape experience. You can have complete control over the amount and way in which you vape, the strength of nicotine and the flavour you receive from the E-Liquid.

One such freedom is the ability to vape without any nicotine at all.

Some people can get confused as to why you would want this ability. After all, many use vaping as a tool to help them quit smoking, and the ability to sate nicotine cravings without the dangers cigarettes bring is a huge benefit of vaping.

But vaping with nicotine-free E-Liquid has many benefits and uses for vapers of all kinds. Here we take a look at some of the reasons why you might choose to use a nicotine-free vape.


Quitting Nicotine

When you use vaping to help stop smoking, there becomes a difference between stopping smoking and quitting nicotine. 

Many people use vaping as a source of nicotine replacement after they stop smoking cigarettes, much like how nicotine patches or gum are used. It helps to satisfy the craving, without so many negative side effects, like the cancer-causing toxins in cigarettes, while also retaining the familiarity of the smoking action, by having to draw vapour into the lungs and exhale it.

While many vapers are happy continuing to enjoy nicotine in this manner, others have the goal of quitting their nicotine addiction altogether and becoming free of both smoke and vape.

As such, zero-nicotine vaping can help people on their journey to living without nicotine. Many choose to gradually decrease the strength of their vape until they reach 0mg vaping. They can then either stay vaping without nicotine or stop vaping completely.


Nicotine-Free Vapes Are Non-Addictive

E-Liquids that are nicotine-free are non-addictive, as they contain no nicotine or tobacco. E-Liquid without nicotine in is not an addictive substance.

An E-Liquid is made up of VG (vegetable glycerin), PG (Propylene Glycol), water, flavouring and nicotine. Of these ingredients, nicotine is the only one that can be addictive.

When you buy nicotine-free E-Liquids, you might be surprised to see the bottle or packaging reading ‘this product contains nicotine which is a highly addictive substance’. While this isn’t the case – there is no nicotine in a 0mg E-Liquid – by law, this has to be put on E-Liquid packaging for products that could be used with nicotine added to them, for example, a shortfill.

If you miss the action of smoking but do not want to become or stay dependent on nicotine, then vaping with 0mg E-Liquids can be a good option.

Taking a Nicotine Break

If you get the strength off on your vape or just take a few too many puffs one day, then you could find yourself feeling a bit dizzy, sick or lethargic from too much nicotine.

By using a zero-nicotine E-Liquid, you can continue vaping without having to intake any more nicotine when you don’t feel like having more, but you still want to replicate the act of inhaling and exhaling vapour.

This can also be a handy way of reducing your nicotine intake. For example, some choose to spend a day or two each week vaping with a nicotine-free E-Liquid to see how they cope without it and start the process of weaning off the substance.

Smoother Feeling

The more nicotine is in an E-Liquid, the harsher the feeling is on your throat – known as the throat hit. While some vapers enjoy a strong throat hit, others find it off-putting. Because zero-nicotine E-Liquids contain no nicotine, when you vape it, there will be no throat hit.

By using zero-nicotine E-Liquids, vapers can still enjoy the delicious flavours, the sensation of vaping and the fun of exhaling a huge cloud, all without needing to feel that throat hit.


Enjoying Flavours

Many vapers enjoy the experience of the thousands of different flavours of E-Liquids out there. E-Liquids of all kinds can be found, from coffee flavour to cheesecake! You name it, it probably exists!

Sometimes freebase nicotine E-Liquids can have a slightly peppery taste to them, the higher the nicotine content they have. By vaping nicotine-free E-Liquids, you are experiencing the full, pure flavour of your E-Liquid, allowing you to experience all the delicious flavour potentials!

There are many instances in which you might want to enjoy a flavour without needing the nicotine content. For example, if you want to reduce your calorie intake, or you have diabetes and cannot eat certain sweet treats, then a caramel doughnut flavour E-Liquid could satisfy your sweet tooth without the risks of eating too much sugar!

Cloud Chasing

If you love making huge clouds with your vape, then it may be worth using a nicotine-free E-Liquid to do this. To create big clouds, you want to vape using an E-Liquid with high VG content, which is common in nicotine-free E-Liquids.

As well as this, when you vape huge clouds using E-Liquid that contains nicotine, it can make the strength far too strong. By choosing a 0mg E-Liquid, you can avoid overdoing it on the nicotine when you decide to make big clouds.

It means you can produce as much vapour as you like without having to worry about how much nicotine you are intaking.
