In cigarettes, the amount of nicotine is not precise and researching the same poses risks. On average, a cigarette contains about 1g of tobacco, which translates to about 8mg of nicotine. It's also important to note that in smoking, not all the nicotine is absorbed by the smoker but depends on various factors which include:
- How you smoke the cigarette
- The size of the puffs
- How long the cigarette burns between puffs
Just like in vaping, the amount of nicotine varies depending on the brand and type of cigarettes, which is another factor that makes measuring the accurate amount of nicotine in cigarettes even harder.
Also, vape liquids don't contain most of the compounds found in cigarettes, and the amount of vaping can have the same effects as some of the compounds like tar.
