An In-Depth Look at Salt Nicotine
If you're a vaper, there's no way that you haven't been hearing about how nicotine salts are all the rage. This brilliant method for extracting nicotine from the tobacco plant has revolutionized the vaping industry by providing nicotine lovers with the satisfaction that they crave at last.
What is Salt-Based Nicotine?
Up until very recently, vapers have
been vaping e-liquids
that are made with freebase nicotine. This type of nicotine was
developed by Phillip Morris almost fifty years ago. The company found that by
chemically altering nicotine, they could find a way to increase the chemical's
effects without having to increase the dose per cigarette.
The problem with freebase nicotine is that when it's heated to high temperatures, it can cause an unpleasantly harsh sensation to the throat as it's inhaled. For this reason, e-liquid brands have generally been creating vape juices that contain relatively low levels of nicotine. Therefore, in order for a nicotine lover to get a satisfying dose, they have to vape a lot of e-liquid before their craving subsides.
Unlike freebase nicotine, salt nicotine is essentially nicotine in its purest form. Extracted from the tobacco plant, this type of nicotine is not chemically altered to enhance its effects.
Because it's virtually left alone, it can be heated to high temperatures without burning the throat. Because vaping devices reach higher temperatures than analog cigarettes, vape enthusiasts can enjoy the high level of nicotine that they're used to with just a few puffs.
A bonus of using salt-based nicotine when vaping is that you can satisfy your nicotine cravings with less e-liquid. In other words, if you're vaping because you crave nicotine, this type of e-liquid is the way to go. Many brands have created salt nic e-juices that provide the same amount of nicotine per puff as a cigarette.
In simple terms salt nic uses benzoic acid to lower the ph of nicotine in it's purest natural form to create a smoother hit. It will allow you to vape at lower temps and use high nic levels to satisfy your nic craving.
Why is Salt Nicotine More Appealing to Cigarette Smokers?
Vape juice that is made with salt
nicotine satisfies vape enthusiasts' cravings just like a real cigarette. For
one thing, each puff delivers that punch to the throat that former cigarette
smokers find extremely appealing. Additionally, each puff provides that buzz
for which this stimulant is known.
In fact, salt-based nicotine is so effective at satisfying those cravings that more people than ever are switching from cigarettes to this method of vaping.
Can Nic Salt Vape Juices be Used with Any Vaping Device?
Currently, e-juices that contain
nicotine salts are most commonly used with pod mod vaping devices. These devices
contain mechanisms that heat this type of juice to the proper temperature to
deliver that smooth and satisfying hit.
Another bonus of using these pod mod devices is that they're small unlike the bulky box mods that we've been seeing for the last few years. Therefore, former cigarette smokers can switch to these lightweight, slim devices and use them without attracting attention.
This Innovation is Here to Stay
Salt nicotine is one of the most exciting innovations as far as the vaping industry is concerned. Thanks to its uniquely satisfying nature, this type of nicotine can help cigarette smokers make the switch to vaping for good.
