There has been a lot of discussions about nicotine salt. What is it? Is it better than freebase nicotine (Classic e-liquid nicotine)? What’s best for me? These are the questions we all ask…
Nicotine salt is made by extracting natural nicotine found in tobacco plants in its purest form (crystal) some add benzoic acid (allowing the liquid to be vaped at a lower temperature whilst still providing a smoother throat hit), Vegetable glycerine & Propylene glycol. This is a purer version than freebase nicotine used in e-liquid and can satisfy the user after a couple of puffs. This helps many people who want to quit smoking and start vaping as it is absorbed into the bloodstream a lot faster, unlike freebase nicotine that takes a little longer to have an effect.
A benefit of using nicotine salt is that it is smoother on the throat, meaning that you will be able to enjoy great flavour whilst maintaining the nicotine level you desire. Being able to vape a 20mg nicotine salt without getting a rough throat-hit is a massive plus! in addition to this, as you will be satisfied after a couple of puffs, you will use less liquid which could help you save even more money when vaping.
A disadvantage of nicotine salt is that they are not for everyone, some people prefer freebase nicotine. Another disadvantage would be that the liquid itself is most likely a little bit more expensive than freebase nicotine e-liquid.
Nicotine salt is for Vapers that want a quick, stronger and satisfying nicotine dosage without feeling the throat harshness.
It is a perfect way to stop smoking as the user will get a similar effect as smoking cigarettes, just without the smell.
We do not recommend Nicotine salt to cloud chasers and sub-ohm users.
The market for nicotine salt is increasing rapidly within the UK, with an increase in devices suited for nicotine salt e-liquid such as pod systems, Mouth to Lung tanks, and nicotine salt shot boosters (used with 00mg Shortfills).
