How Much Nicotine Is In Each Cigarette?

I’ve read that our body metabolizes nicotine into cotinine but have yet to find a place that says exactly how much nicotine it takes to produce X amount of cotinine. Thanks.

    Cigarettes contain about 9mg of nicotine but as much of this is burned off the smoker gets about 1mg per cigarette. Your body gets rid of the nicotine quickly, it only has a half-life of about 60 minutes.
    I have not seen the exact figures on how much gets converted to cotinine – but it is most of it.
    Your body breaks the nicotine as follows: –
    • About 80 percent of nicotine is broken down to cotinine by enzymes in your liver.
    • Nicotine is also metabolized in your lungs to cotinine and nicotine oxide.
    • Cotinine and other metabolites are excreted in your urine. Cotinine has a 24-hour half-life, so you can test whether or not someone has been smoking in the past day or two by screening his or her urine for cotinine.
    • The remaining nicotine is filtered from the blood by your kidneys and excreted in the urine.

    0,2 g in a pack.(usually in light ones , it is different )
    5 eaten cigarettes are poisonous and even deadly in kids, sometimes in adults.
    when smoking more than 90% just burns away.So you can imagine how much little bit you need to feel the ” high “
