Nicotine Salts - Everything you need to know!
April 8th, 2018 2:03PM

If you have been shopping around for some new e-juice you’ve probably heard the term salt nicotine being thrown around, and today we’re gonna fully explain what it is in this video.

Salt nicotine has been around for quite a while, and it’s started gaining popularity a few months back. In short, Salt nicotine is a new form of nicotine that has a much more effective way of delivering nicotine into your system. You can have a much higher nicotine strength and it won't be as harsh.

Salt nicotine is naturally formed in leaf tobacco, and it’s much more stable than its freebase counterpart. It’s taken quite a few years to perfect salt nicotine for vaping, but I think we’ve finally done it. 

Now, you are probably wondering what the big difference between regular freebase nicotine and salt nicotine. Well, I’ve been vaping salt nicotine alongside freebase nicotine for about two months now. Right now, I am actually vaping 45 milligrams of salt nicotine.

Now, I know what you are thinking… 45 milligrams is a ridiculously high amount of nicotine and you are correct it is, from a freebase standpoint. In salt nicotine, there’s actually a secret ingredient that makes it tolerable at higher nicotine strengths. That secret ingredient is called benzoic acid. 

Now benzoic acid actually serves multiple purposes. First of which being helping salt nicotine vaporize at a much lower temperature along with lowering the pH levels to provide a much smoother throat hit. It also creates a chemical reaction that helps it be a little bit more absorbable similar to freebase nicotine. Essentially, you’re able to vape much higher strengths of nicotine to really get that cigarette like rush of nicotine. The 45 milligrams of nicotine I am vaping right now is similar to 18 milligrams in terms of throat hit, but I am feeling much more of a head rush with this salt nicotine.

Now, as good as all this sounds salt nicotine is really only recommended for low wattage devices because you are getting much more nicotine. So if you are a chain vaper, it’s going to be a lot easier “Niccing out” as you won't get that kind of throat hit. In short, if you’re looking for an awesome mouth to lung experience this stuff is amazing.

Nicotine Salts or Freebase, You decide!
