Using nic shots with shortfills

Nicotine shots are not a new thing – they have been with us since the introduction of the TPD. Typically a nic shot comes in a 10ml bottle and contains up to 20mg/ml nicotine content as required by the Tobacco Products Directive. Nic shots are used to add nicotine to nicotine-free e-liquids, turning them into a ready-to-vape e-liquid. At the beginning, calculating the strength of your final e-liquid was pretty simple. Short-fill e-liquids typically contained 20ml of nicotine-free liquid in a 30ml bottle. Adding an 18mg nic shot to 20ml short fill results in a 6mg e-liquid, a 9mg nic shot results in a 3mg ready to vape e-liquid. Currently, short-fill e-liquids come in different bottle sizes with a different amounts of liquid inside, making calculating your required nicotine shots strength more difficult.

Nicotine shots – dealing with TPD regulations

Before the introduction of Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) many nicotine base manufacturers were looking for a solution to oncoming nicotine products regulations, even more vapers were in panic, frantically buying e-liquids and nicotine bases in bulk to fill their stashes before the ban comes into force. Two main concerns were: online sales ban in many countries for all products containing nicotine and the limit put on nicotine strength (no more than 20mg/ml) and volume of nicotine liquids (not more than 10ml). What does that mean in practice? Whoever filled their cabinets with bases and liquids is vaping or DIY mixing e-liquids as we speak, others are stuck with what is available online (only nicotine free) and in their local stores (only up to 10ml and 20mg/ml). Well at least until recently […]
