The Harm Reduction Role of High-Nicotine Vaping

A study by University College London found a significant increase in higher-nicotine vaping in the UK, particularly at the legal limit of 20 mg/ml. This shift is attributed to the introduction of disposable vapes with stronger nicotine strengths. Research indicates that higher nicotine levels may aid smoking cessation. Users like "David" and Janine highlight the role of high-nicotine vapes in quitting smoking. Taxing based on nicotine strength, as proposed in the UK, may hinder vaping's harm reduction potential and encourage the use of lower-strength liquids. Individuals have varying nicotine needs, with higher levels often beneficial for quitting.
