With the popularity of e-cigarette culture all over the world, the circle of e-cigarette players is also growing slowly. At the same time, e-cigarettes also play a role as a healthy substitute for cigarettes, and they have gradually attracted widespread attention from smokers. Many smokers do not seem to have a deep understanding and understanding of e-cigarettes, so there will be many doubts. What is the ratio of cigarettes to e-cigarette liquid? 1ml e-liquid is equivalent to how many cigarettes?
In fact, although electronic cigarettes and cigarettes have the most in common, they contain nicotine, but the biggest difference is that in addition to nicotine, electronic cigarette oil does not contain more than 2,000 other toxic and harmful substances in cigarettes, and cigarettes are harmful to the human body. The most harmful and carcinogenic is not nicotine, but tar and carbon monoxide.
Nicotine common sense
Nicotine is an alkaloid present in the Solanaceae plant (Solanum) and an important component of tobacco.
Nicotine can be addictive or dependent (one of the most difficult drug addictions to break), and repeated nicotine use also increases heart rate and blood pressure and reduces appetite.
When nicotine enters the body, it is transported through the blood and can pass through the blood-brain barrier. It takes only 7 seconds on average to reach the brain after inhalation. The half-life of nicotine in the human body is about 2 hours. The amount of nicotine your body gets from smoking is affected by many factors, including the quality of the cigarette, whether you inhale it, and whether you use a filter. With chewing, buccal, and inhaled tobacco, nicotine enters the body more efficiently by being contained between the lips and gums and by direct inhalation through the nose. The liver is the organ that primarily metabolizes nicotine.
Nicotine can increase the number of neurotransmitters and increase the amount of dopamine in the brain, resulting in a sense of well-being and relaxation, which may eventually lead to addiction.
Harmful components of cigarettes
Harmful components in cigarette smoke include carbon monoxide, nicotine, and other alkaloids, amines, nitriles, alcohols, phenols, alkanes, alkenes, carbonyl compounds, nitrogen oxides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heterocyclic compounds, and heavy metal elements.
They have a variety of biological roles, including:
1. Inflammatory stimuli to the respiratory mucosa: such as aldehydes, nitrogen oxides, and olefins.
2. Toxic effects on cells: such as nitriles, amines, heavy metals.
3. Addictive effects: alkaloids such as nicotine.
4. Carcinogenic effects on the human body: such as benzopyrene of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, cadmium, dimethylnitrosamine, β-naphthylamine, etc.
5. It has a cancer-promoting effect on the human body: such as phenolic compounds.
6. Make red blood cells lose their oxygen-carrying capacity: such as carbon monoxide.
The various carcinogens that makeup cigarette tar, when the inhaled amount reaches a certain level, are the initiators of carcinogenicity, and the carcinogens and synergistic carcinogens can also accelerate the carcinogenic effect.
nicotine replacement therapy
Nicotine replacement therapy is a non-tobacco form, small doses of nicotine preparations with good safety, to replace the nicotine in tobacco, the nicotine provided by it is less than that of smoking, but it is enough to reduce withdrawal symptoms. After a period of use, quit smoking The intake of nicotine is gradually reduced to a minimum, thereby overcoming the habit of smoking and achieving the goal of successful smoking cessation.
Nicotine replacement therapy is an effective "smoking cessation method" recommended by WHO, because nicotine replacement therapy can not only satisfy the addiction to smoking, gradually reduce the dosage, but also avoid the harm of tar, carbon monoxide, and other toxic and harmful substances in tobacco. It is an effective and safe way, so it is recognized internationally. It also shows from the side that tar and carbon monoxide are more harmful to the human body than nicotine.
What is the ratio of cigarettes to e-liquid? 1ml of e-liquid is equivalent to how many cigarettes?
Nicotine is not the real "culprit" of cancer, but it cannot be abused because e-cigarettes do not have tar and carbon monoxide. There have been many incidents of poisoning caused by the abuse of nicotine in foreign countries, so it is still necessary to understand the conversion between the concentration of e-liquid and cigarettes according to your actual situation.
If the nicotine content of each cigarette you smoke is 1.1 (nicotine content = nicotine content, there will be a mark on the left side of the cigarette pack) it will look like this:
1.1×20 sticks = 22 mg The average person consumes about 2 to 4 ml of e-liquid a day. If you have two ml a day, it is recommended to choose 11 mg. According to the above statement, you can choose, how many milliliters do you smoke?
Assuming that the amount of nicotine in the smoke of ordinary cigarettes, that is, the content of nicotine in the smoke, is 1.1 mg per cigarette if the concentration of e-liquid is 6 mg/ml, then one milliliter of e-liquid is approximately equal to the nicotine content of 5 cigarettes. If the e-liquid concentration is 3mg/ml, then one milliliter of e-liquid is approximately equivalent to the nicotine content of three cigarettes.
Most people consume about 3-5ml of e-liquid per day, even if the concentration is 6mg, which is equivalent to the nicotine content of 16-27 cigarettes ingested per day. Moreover, many smokers consume more e-liquid every day, which is calculated according to the average daily concentration of 15ml and 3mg, which is equivalent to the nicotine content of ingesting 41 cigarettes.
For a normal person, if he inhales such a large number of cigarettes every day, his body will feel very uncomfortable and will cause great harm to his health, because, in addition to nicotine, cigarettes also contain toxic substances such as tar and carbon monoxide. But for e-cigarettes, the e-liquid only contains nicotine, and there is no tar and other substances in cigarettes, so such a conversion is meaningless.
However, it should not be abused because of this. After all, excessive inhalation of nicotine can also cause poisoning, so please exercise restraint. , it means that the nicotine intake is too much. At this time, you should stop using e-cigarettes, ventilate, breathe fresh air, and drink more water. If the symptoms are severe, you need to seek medical attention immediately.
In addition, be sure to keep the e-juice properly, because the whole bottle of e-juice contains a lot of nicotine. Taking the concentration of 30ml and 6mg as an example, a bottle of e-juice contains 180mg of nicotine. If it is accidentally eaten by infants or pets, it will cause very serious consequences. Moreover, the taste of e-liquid is mostly sweet, similar to the taste of drinks and cakes. If it is not placed properly, it will easily be taken by mistake.
