    So i got my first mod 20 days back and haven't smoked since but i was really craving the nicotine so went down and got myself 60mg and i used to be a light smoker around 2 hards or 3 lights a day. I think i do get buzzed after like 10 puffs but it's not quite affective(maybe its my psychology telling me I'm buzzed). Also I'm using a sub-ohm device so should i take moth to lung or direct lung hits to get the best of the nicotine and how many puffs to get properly buzzed? Thanks

    And using a sub-ohm device. I was hoping I read that wrong and they got 60 ml of fluid.

    As far as I know 60 mg is medium-low strength, they usually go up to 120mg which is considered pretty high

    Are you referring to 120mg/ml? I think the math is off here. 100mg/ml of Nicotine is actually dangerous to exposed skin.

    I have a feeling he might be referring to 60MG/ML Nicotine Base. Just a feeling my mind reading is not working today...........

    For shits and giggles I tried some of my 48MG in VG for a test and boy did that give me a Buzz! I seriously doubt the 60MG is correct and more like the the .6% Crommy stated.

    There is no fucking way he is vaping 60mg on a sub ohm and a light smoker.
    Unless he smoked the cigs at once while lighting the box on fire, that MIGHT be enough throat hit that 60 would be.

    I did a 60mg drip once I measured wrong and felt like I was taking a direct inhale off a lit car battery. And that was on the lungs of a multiple PAD smoker and one that also did multiple pad non filtered.

    I'd say OP is vaping 6mg for one hit of 60mg they'd be puking their guts out.

    Anyway I'd recommend 12mg for MTL or 6mg for DTL.

    The bottle says 6mg, I guess that’s the same as .60%

    Seriously? Here's a something that some people would do. They'd hit it and find out. What are you, 12?

    Well, I tried and it didn’t seem to work, hence the question. Maybe try and calm down before you throw shade?

    I am calm, but thanks for the emotional advice. There is no way anyone can know the answer to your question. It's like asking how many cookies can I eat before I feel full. Or how many beers can I drink before I'm drunk. It's purely subjective. I'm serious, just hit that mod until you get buzzed, there is no other way for you to have the answer. Everything else is just opinion. I have a 12 year old that needs stuff like this explained to him, which was why I asked that question.

    Hey no worries.
    More concerned about you possibly hurting yourself.

    Now what type of atty are you using, coming off of smoking most prefer a mtl set up and higher resistance.

    I'm a lung hitter, using an rda with juice that is 18mg per ml, or 1.8% i think it is if I'm converting that over correctly. At any given, would be diificultto even try answering. Vaping for me doesn't give payloads of getting buzzed. It is a steady intake of roughly around 0.90mg per ml, and I fairly much vape near all day and evening off and on. For me it's like what heroin addicts would call an even flow. I stay stable or leveled off and nicotine-ed up like I did for 35 years smoking moderately at half a pack to full pack a day. You might need more or less, nicotine, air, hits, heat, coolness. It's subjective.

    Vaping nicotine will not buzz you quite like a cig will.
    The nicotine salts juice as used in the Juul will be the most ciglike nic 'buzz'.

    I was a 1/2 to pack a day smoker off and on for 20 years but for the last 3 years I was smoking everyday. Smoking menthol American spirits so they were strong. I started at 6 mg for a couple bottles and then went to 3 mg. The shop was out of 6 mg at the time. Never really felt a buzz so my next bottle was 12 mg and I could hit it about 6-12 times and started feeling sick. I don't want to feel a buzz with vaping. It is not the same as cigarettes. It depends on if you just ate or have an empty stomach. I have found it also depends on the juice. Some juices I can smoke 6mg some only 3mg. I am down to 3mg and can chain smoke my vape without feeling a buzz. But I feel better after just 5-6 big hits and can put it down. A lot depends on the tank, watts, and how long of a hit you take.

    (by the way I will not be posting in this section. Not an expert by any means and will leave these questions for the more experienced guys.)

    I'm not anti-drugs but I hate to see this turn into a drug abuse forum. Were here to get healthy not high.

    Some how there does seem to be a lot of recovered alcohol and drug abusers on VU though.
    And I agree with you doing nic to get a buzz is stupid.
    Just my expert opinion.
    Of course smoking was stupid too and we are here to substitute vaping as a much less dangerous substitute.

    I think it's because, we had to quit the stuff that was killing us the fastest, first. Quitting smoking always got put off, since it kills you slowly. And if you're "addictive by nature," then quitting smoking has always seemed completely impossible... at least for me... until vaping. Vaping has FINALLY provided a means for that last diehard 20% to finally get smoke-free.

    And I agree with @Angrygod50 ; I'm not opposed to a buzz at all, but I have *other stuff* for that... vaping nicotine is NOT for getting a buzz, it's for finding a way to not smoke tobacco, particularly commercial cigarettes, with all their additives that make them twice as addictive as any other form of tobacco smoking, if not 10 times more.

    If all you're looking for is a buzz, there are a lot of things that will do that much more effectively. Vaping too much nicotine will just make you sick, not high. Much of the "buzz" of cigarette smoking is from plain old hypoxia, from carbon monoxide.

    I apologize for referencing herion addicts. I could have said breath addicts, or life addicts. I was not intending anything by it but illustrative example, comparrison. If even talking has become " turn into a drug abuse forum", I'll merely avoid posting. Not sure which words "turn this forum into a drug abuse" forum or which do not. I'll not bother as attempting to discern that requires far too much effort, I would need to inquire with every visitor here which does, which doesn't. Seems a pity we can not talk and use comparrisons, illustration, allegory, and other means of discussion. Oh well, it'll be what it'll be.

    the problem could be the buzz you are looking for is not a nicotine buzz...you are craving a different compound that cigarettes gave you and vaping doesn't

    Long ago learned the rule about freedom of the press. They what own the presses are free to use them, you who don't own them are not so free. I'm often reminded of this even the Internet & Web which alleges the greatest freedom of the press, as it is literally the Gutenburg press of our age for any who can access it. We are supposed to be brought together by this free and common ground to share ideas, communicate. I find that a crock as we see too often the chains of oppression via censorship and one or many taking offense at one or many ideas, communications. In short the freedom becomes the prison by means of atrition in being nudged to conform to 'standards'. So, yes, moo moo, bleet bleet. All the sheep in the same pasture, all together yet still ever so alone each one.

    Greatest country in the world?
    Depends on your definition of greatest.
    We are NOT #1 in many key areas.
    For instance we DO spend the most per capita on health care, but we do not have the best health as a result.
    Education?
    Real Increase in working class income?
    Many more things we are not number one in.

    But good propaganda.

    You do know I was not serious, I hope. I've lived in 6 countries and been in over 90 over the last 26 years. I have spent 4 months in the US over the last 20 years. I've a pretty fair idea where the US stands in comparison to the world.

    Yep not deadly unless a lot on you and you leave it a while. And likely only a good bout of nic sick if that happened.
    Now the full strength nic is another matter.
    Full lab safety procedures required.

    Normally I try not to vape enough to give myself a buzz, I consider that a major rise in my nicotine levels, so future amounts of nicotine needed to be satisfied will be greater than it was before. I try to only vape just enough so I don't need a cig. I had to scroll down quite a bit, in hopes of finding out that it was actually .6% / 6mg/ml or a 60ml bottle lol, anything over 24mg is insane, anything over 12 in a sub ohm tank is crazy too lol. (I am trying to come down down to 3mg juice)
