What are Nic Salts?

Nicotine salt e-liquids – or simply nic salts – are vape juices that have been specially blended to offer a sensation most similar to smoking a conventional cigarette that includes tobacco.

They are composed of salt nicotine, a type of naturally forming nicotine found in leaf tobacco, Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG) and flavourings. Unlike traditional e-liquids, nic salts are blended with benzoic acid, which reduces the nicotine’s pH level, allowing it to be more readily absorbed into the body than traditional freebase nicotine, and allowing for a smoother throat hit even at higher nicotine strengths.

Nic salts are economical in the sense that you will need less hits of your vape to satisfy your nicotine cravings – as a smooth throat hit is promised even at higher strengths, you can have a higher dose without paying the price of a throat hit that is too harsh.

Nic salts are usually composed of a 50/50 ratio, they are suitable for use with most plus-ohm vape coil types and refillable pods. On top of that, they are commonly made in a variety of nicotine strengths, most commonly in 10mg and 20mg. This gives vapers the option to reduce their nicotine consumption when they’re ready to do so.

Considering these facts, it’s no surprise that since their introduction to the market back in 2015, nic salts have become hugely popular, becoming the go-to solution for many vapers when looking for vape juice. Some of vaping’s most popular juices are nic salts, including the disposable-inspired bar juices Elfliq and Bar Juice 5000.

Why choose Nic Salts over standard e-liquid?

Choosing nic salts over standard e-liquids is beneficial for those quitting smoking regular cigarettes as they deliver a more comfortable nicotine hit, even at higher concentrations. This makes them effective for satisfying strong cravings.

Additionally, nic salt e-liquids are advisable if you cannot continuously vape throughout the day. The nicotine hit offered by nic salts has been especially formulated to keep cravings at bay for extended periods of time. Additionally, nic salts fast-track nicotine’s journey into your bloodstream, offering you a hit in as little as 6 seconds. Generally, if you are looking for a quick fix, nic salts are the way forward.

This combination of quick absorption and smooth delivery makes nic salts a suitable choice for both satisfying nicotine needs and enjoying a flavorful vaping experience.

What type of vape kit works best with nic salts?

Nic salts are most suitable with pod kits and starter kits. These devices are typically associated with mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping, which similarly replicates the sensation of smoking conventional cigarettes. Generally speaking, any pod or tank containing a high resistance coil would be ideally suited for nic salts; they are not recommended for use with sub ohm devices.

For those using sub ohm vape kits who are seeking a higher nicotine intake, it’s advisable to incorporate additional nicotine shots into your high-VG e-liquids. This method allows you to maintain the desired vape experience while adjusting the nicotine level to your preference.

What is the best nic salt strength?

The best nic salt strength heavily depends on individual nicotine needs and preferences. Typically, former heavy smokers may prefer higher strengths, such as 20mg, for immediate satisfaction. Lighter smokers or those gradually decreasing nicotine intake might find lower strengths, around 10mg more suitable. Personal experimentation is essential to determine the ideal strength for each individual’s needs.

Are nic salts smoother?

Nicotine salts are known for their smoother throat hit compared to freebase nicotine. This is due to the benzoic acid in nic salts, which lowers nicotine’s pH level, making it less harsh and more comfortable to inhale, especially at higher nicotine concentrations.

Do nic salts taste better?

Nic salts often provide a more muted and pure taste compared to freebase nicotine, allowing the actual flavour of the e-liquid to shine through more prominently. This can result in a more enjoyable and less distorted flavour experience.

How are nic salts made?

Nicotine salts are formulated by adding benzoic acid to nicotine extracted from tobacco leaves. This process not only makes the nicotine more bioavailable but also reduces the alkalinity, resulting in a smoother vaping experience.

Are nic salts safe?

While nic salts are considered a safer alternative to traditional smoking, they are not without risks. Nicotine is an addictive substance, and it’s important to use nic salts responsibly and understand the potential risks associated with nicotine use.

How do you use nic salts?

Nic salts are best used with low-wattage, high-resistance devices like pod mods or MTL (mouth-to-lung) vape kits. These devices are designed to handle the smoother throat hit and higher nicotine concentration of nic salts effectively.

How are nic salts different from freebase nicotine?

Nic salts and traditional freebase nicotine e liquids differ in chemical structure and vaping experience. Freebase nicotine is more potent in smaller doses and provides a harsher throat hit, making it suitable for lower nicotine levels and high-power vaping devices. In contrast, nic salts are smoother and absorbed more quickly by the body, ideal for higher nicotine levels and low-power devices.
