Berts Advice: If you Do Not Smoke, Do Not Start Vaping Nicotine!

…from cancer to a weakened immune system, amongst many others, we are all aware of the vast health risks from smoking tobacco, and that is why electronic cigarettes are becoming more increasingly popular as a form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy.

We should only be using vaping as a way to quit smoking to reduce the exposure as a user to the harsh chemicals that are contained within tobacco that cause these health issues. Vaping is a great substitute for tobacco as you still receive your fix of nicotine, but in a much less harmful way

There is also the misconception that nicotine is the cause of these diseases, but that is untrue, however nicotine is still a highly addictive substance and should only be used by those giving up tobacco products. 

Yes, vaping is considered 95% better than smoking as tobacco contains over 7000 chemicals when lit and 69 of these chemicals are known to be cancer causing. Compared to vaping we can see the attraction to none smokers… but if you are not addicted to nicotine and have gone this long without tobacco why start vaping nicotine? There are usually 4 main ingredients/chemicals used in e-Liquids, nicotine, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine and flavourings, it is also advised, as well as being law, that you must be over 18. 

Whilst Berts are a retailer of vaping products that contain nicotine, we always recommend that you slowly decrease your nicotine strength in an attempt to give up completely.

But again in short… If You Do Not Smoke, Do Not Start Vaping Nicotine!

Important Nicotine and Shortfill Information

Many of the E Liquids for sale on the Berts Website contain Nicotine. Any bottle that is 10ml in volume will contain nicotine, unless stated otherwise. To stay compliant with the Tobacco Products Directive, the nicotine content of these will never exceed 20mg.

Those marked for sale with “0mg Nicotine” contain 0% nicotine and are classed as nicotine free.

If you want to add Nicotine this can be done by adding 10ml bottles of nicotine boosters to your e-liquid to achieve your desired strength.

A single 10ml nicotine booster that has a nicotine strength of 18mg will turn a 50ml, 0mg nicotine strength e-liquid into a 3mg Nicotine strength juice when mixed.

We recommend shaking your juice well after adding the nicotine and for best results (but not necessary) steep for 24hours. always shake well before every use.
