Nicotine Salts (Nic-salts) are nicotine-based e-liquids combined with an ingredient such as benzoic acid, which is traditionally used in food products.
The chemical reaction creates a salt-nicotine solution and reduces the throat hit on higher strength nicotine e-liquids creating a smoother, more enjoyable vaping experience.
The term “Nicotine salt” refers to the scientific definition, the e-liquid does not actually contain salt.
Nicotine salts already exists in tobacco naturally. So if you have smoked a cigarette, then you have experienced nicotine salts before.
Advantages of nicotine salts
Nic-salts provide a smoother throat hit, which is beneficial for those who prefer higher nicotine strengths.
The nicotine blood absorption rate is typically faster than regular e-liquids and is closer to that of an actual cigarette.
This is beneficial for those trying to quit smoking because nic-salt e-liquids satisfy nicotine cravings in a similar way to traditional cigarettes. Nic-salts are designed to be used with lower wattage devices such as pens & pod mods. This results in a more satisfying e-liquid, which also lasts longer as there is less power needed to vape it.
