Nicotine Salts: Are they right for you? As you know, the vaping industry is continuously evolving. Every week a new device hits the market, coil styles change, battery life is improved. Now, we are seeing some modifications to the ingredients used in e-juice.

In comes Nicotine Salts. Quite frankly, nicotine salts are the new buzz (pun intended). In the next few paragraphs we are going to do our best to bring you up to speed with this new ingredient, without getting too Bill-Nye on you.

What are Nicotine Salts? Why do I want to vape on salts? Don’t let the name confuse you. The term “Nicotine salt” also known as nic salt just refers to the scientific definition. It doesn’t mean it’s infused with the tasty mineral you sprinkle on your mac and cheese. In chemical terms, a salt results when an acid reacts with a base. Simply put, nicotine salts are made by mixing pure nicotine (base) with certain kinds of acids. I know what you're thinking right about now, Acids? That sounds worse? Actually, nicotine salts exist in tobacco, naturally. So if you have smoked a cigarette you have experienced nicotine salt.

Nicotine Vs. Nicotine Salt Nicotine, also referred to as freebase nicotine or nicotine liquid is directly extracted from tobacco. In this process, all the impurities found in tobacco are stripped away. Leaving you with nicotine in its pure form. This form of nicotine is used in almost all e-juices on the market today. Freebase nicotine has a high alkalinity with a PH level around 7-8. Why are you telling me this? Well, because the PH level directly correlates with the severity of harshness the vaper experiences during inhalation. The higher the nicotine strength, the harsher it becomes.
The creation of nicotine salt is achieved by strategically infusing specific acids to freebase nicotine. What this does is reduce the PH level of the nicotine solution, resulting in less irritation. Meaning you can vape higher nicotine salt strengths without that rough throat hit.

Advantages of Nicotine Salts We already talked about one advantage that nic salts provide, a smoother hit allowing you to vape higher nicotine concentrations. The next major advantage to using nic salt ejuice is the nicotine blood absorption rate. It has been proven that nicotine salt vape juice will enter the bloodstream faster then traditional vape juice. Nic salts provide a blood absorption rate closer to an actual cigarette.

This is beneficial to those trying to quit smoking because nic salt e-liquid is mimicking the effects of that cancer stick you're trying to put down. Therefore, if you are struggling with the transition to vaping because you are not getting the same effects as a cigarette then you might want to give nicotine salt e-juice a try.

Vaping Nicotine Salts When vaping nicotine salt ejuice it is important to understand that the devices used to vape nicotine salt e-liquid will differ depending on the nicotine strength you choose. If you are simply looking to put down the cigarette than a higher nicotine salt strength such as 25mg or 50mg while using a low powered pod device is recommended. If you like chucking clouds and getting tons of flavor with your high powered sub ohm device than we recommend turning it down a notch and using a lower nic salts ejuice in the neighborhood of 6mg - 15mg. Higher nicotine strengths used in high powered devices will likely overwhelm you with too much nicotine so it is strongly advised you do not vape high strength nicotine salts ejuice in high powered, sub ohm devices.
