How to use nic shots
Using a nic shot could not be easier. Once you have selected the strength and ratio of shot you are looking for, you will need to mix it with a flavoured shortfill of your choice to make up a complete juice that is ready to vape. If, for example, you opt for one of our delicious 50ml Lulo and Citrus shortfills, all you have to do is add one 10ml nic shot into the easy-squeeze bottle to create your new nicotine-infused juice. As all of our shortfill bottles are 60ml, there is always enough room to add your shot with no mess or spillages.
Once you have added the nic shot, replace the nib of our specially designed shortfill bottle and shake vigorously for around 30 seconds to mix your juice. Finally, fill the tank of your device with your new e-liquid and give it a go - you won’t regret it!
How do nicotine shots work?
Nicotine shots work by adding a small amount of liquid nicotine (10ml or less) to a regular nicotine-free e-liquid shortfill. Following the 2017 introduction of the Tobacco Products Directive law - which limits pre-mixed vape juice to 10ml of nicotine - nic shots allow vapers to add their own nicotine to their chosen e-liquids without breaking the law.
How many nicotine shots do I need?
While it’s important to remember you don't need to use nicotine shots when vaping, and that nicotine-free shortfills can be vaped as they are, if you are looking for a nic hit, knowing how much to add and at what strength is vitally important.
You should never add more than one 10ml nic shot to a 50ml shortfill. On the other hand, what strength you opt for will depend on your preferences and what you are used to - particularly if you are a former smoker. As a rule of thumb, we would recommend following the below guidelines:
- 3mg - 5mg/ml - former light smokers and those looking to cut down on their nicotine intake.
- 6mg - 10mg/ml - former light to moderate smokers, especially those who have only just transitioned from smoking to vaping.
- 12mg - 20mg/ml - former heavy smokers.
How much nicotine do I add to 50ml?
In terms of volume, adding more than one 10ml nic shot to a 50ml shortfill is a bad idea. This is a different story when you look at the different nicotine strengths you can choose and all comes down to your own tastes, as discussed above. Here at Just Juice, we sell a wide range of strengths, VG/PG ratios and ice shots to suit every vaper’s tastes. However, if you’re not sure which strength to go for, drop us a line! We’d be happy to help.
