It might seem completely self-evident to you that people who vape do it for the nicotine. They use vaping to replace the nicotine in conventional cigarettes – and in doing so, they eventually wean themselves off of tobacco. The truth, though, is that there are thousands – perhaps even millions – of people around the world who don’t actually do things that way. They use nicotine-free vapes, and they’re completely happy doing so.
How satisfying can nicotine-free vapes be? Just ask the Norwegians. In Norway, vaping is completely legal, but vaping products with nicotine can’t be legally sold unless they’ve been approved for medical use. So far, that hasn’t happened for any vaping product – and yet, as of 2023, there were a reported 150,000 vapers in Norway enjoying their “e-sigaretter” instead of smoking cigarettes. Clearly, vaping can still be a completely enjoyable and satisfying experience even without nicotine.

How is it possible that nicotine-free vapes can be so enjoyable? In this article, I’ll explain it all. You may find that this information changes your perspective and introduces you to a completely new way of doing things.
Nicotine-Free Vapes Duplicate the Motions and Rituals of Smoking
When people discuss how addictive smoking is, they often focus on the chemical aspect because nicotine is one of the most powerfully addictive chemicals known. There are some people, though, who actually find it surprisingly easy to quit nicotine but still can’t resist the allure of smoking. For those people, the mental aspect of addiction has a greater hold than the chemical aspect. If that’s true for you, you’ve probably found it difficult to quit smoking with traditional nicotine replacement products because those products don’t replicate the rituals of smoking. Using a nicotine replacement product means that you’re still getting your nicotine – but because you’re not bringing something up to your mouth or exhaling a cloud, it just doesn’t feel the same.
One of the biggest reasons why nicotine-free vapes work for people is because they replicate the familiar motions and sensations of smoking. You’re bringing something to your mouth and puffing on it. You’re tasting the vapor and blowing a cloud across the room. For some people, those features outweigh the fact that there’s no nicotine. Don’t forget that if you live in a nation that doesn’t permit the sale of vaping products with nicotine, there’s nothing stopping you from using a nicotine-free vape and a traditional nicotine replacement product at the same time.
Nicotine-Free Vapes Put Flavor at the Forefront
One of the biggest differences between vapes with and without nicotine is that you’ll only experience throat hit if you use a vape juice with nicotine. For some people, the lack of throat hit is a drawback of nicotine-free e-liquid. That’s why people who live in places where vapes with nicotine aren’t allowed will sometimes use menthol e-liquid – because the menthol creates a pleasant sensation that simulates the throat hit of nicotine.
There are some vapers, though, who actually don’t enjoy throat hit because the strong sensation and the peppery flavor of the nicotine make the e-liquid difficult to taste. That’s particularly a detriment for those who vape more for the flavor than for the nicotine. Maybe you’ve been vaping for so long that nicotine doesn’t really factor into your pleasure or satisfaction at all anymore. Mainly, you’re just vaping because you enjoy the flavors. If that’s the case, it might be time for you to consider switching to nicotine-free vapes.
Nicotine-Free Vapes Can Be Useful for Part-Time Use
Another reason why many people use nicotine-free vapes is because they’re useful in specific situations. Remember – the fact that you’re interested in vaping without nicotine doesn’t mean that you need to do so all of the time. You could use vapes both with and without nicotine and switch between the two as needed. Here are a few reasons why you might want to do that.
- You enjoy vaping so much that you do it almost constantly, and you’re afraid that you might be consuming more nicotine than you should. In this case, you can switch to a nicotine-free vape when you start to feel overly buzzed.
- You’re trying to reduce your nicotine intake and are already using the lowest nicotine strength available for your device or vape juice brand. In this case, using vapes without nicotine on a part-time basis can help you reduce your nicotine consumption further.
- You want to reduce your nicotine consumption in the evening to improve your sleep quality. In this case, you may find it useful to switch from your usual vape juice to a nicotine-free e-liquid an hour or two before going to bed.
Nicotine-Free Vapes Are Great for Trying New Flavors
One of the things you’ve learned as you’ve read this article is that nicotine-free e-liquids are more popular than you might think. That’s why companies make vapes without nicotine even where nicotine is allowed – because people really do use them even in places where nicotine is available. That’s why you can always find nicotine-free vape juice at any good vape shop.
Although there are people everywhere who use vapes without nicotine, it’s also true that nicotine is definitely the more popular option in places where it’s available. So, when your favorite vape shop’s stock of vape juice gets older and needs to be replaced before it expires, nicotine-free e-liquids will always go on sale first because 0 mg is always the last nicotine strength to sell out. That can be a good thing for you, though – even if nicotine-free e-liquid isn’t what you normally use. You can grab those cheap vape juices and try some new flavors without spending full price for them.
Nicotine-Free Vape Juice Is Useful as a Mixer
Are you trying to reduce your nicotine intake by switching to e-liquids with progressively lower strengths? If that’s the case, you’ve probably noticed that there isn’t really any further progress to make once you’ve reached a strength of 3 mg. Although e-liquids with strengths below 3 mg do exist, they’re not common and can be quite hard to find. What you might not have realized, though, is that you can actually make lower-nicotine e-liquids on your own. All that you need is a bottle, and you can mix two different e-liquids in the proportion of your choice to make any nicotine strength. The easiest nicotine strength to make is 1.5 mg, which results from blending a 3 mg e-liquid and a nicotine-free e-liquid in a half-and-half ratio. Just adjust the ratio when you want to reduce your nicotine strength further.
