Top best answers to the question «How much nicotine per day is safe»

Researchers have frequently indicated that the lethal dose of nicotine for adults is 50 to 60 milligrams (mg), which prompted safety warnings stating that approximately five cigarettes or 10 milliliters (ml) of a nicotine-containing solution could be fatal.

  • Individuals should not have more than five pieces of gum or lozenges over a period of six hours, or use more than 20 pieces per day. At 4 milligrams of nicotine each, a total day’s intake would be 80 milligrams of nicotine, which would exceed the daily intake from nicotine patches.
  • Mayer estimates that anything from 0.5 g to 1 g (ten to twenty times more than the current estimate) or more would be needed to kill an adult, putting the toxicity of nicotine at 6.5 to 13 mg/kg. In practice, this means that you are extremely, monumentally unlikely to have a fatal nicotine overdose from vaping.
