NICOTINE SALT: SOMETHING NEW TO TRY IN 2018

Nicotine Salt is the new thing people are raving about in the vaping world. People are looking for the new best nicotine alternative, and many agree that salt nicotine is the best nicotine alternative for people transitioning from cigarettes. So instead of having to mix and do guesswork about what nicotine level works best for you, you have more options to choose from.
It’s always important to know what the product is before investing your money in it. We will give you a basic explanation of everything you need to know about nicotine salts in order for you to decide whether it is a good fit for you.

WHAT ARE NICOTINE SALTS?

Nicotine salt is found in tobacco leaves, so the compounds contain nicotine and other organic components. It differs from the normal nicotine used in e-liquid known as “freebase” nicotine because nicotine salts have one or more of other chemicals in tobacco leaves. Freebase nicotine is not bonded to anything else which makes it easily vaporized. The natural components in nicotine salts make it a more stable form than freebase nicotine.
The differences between freebase nicotine and nicotine salts make both forms to provide vapers with different vaping experiences.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NICOTINE SALTS?

The companies that have incorporated nicotine salts into their products have done a lot of research in how to do so. Although there hasn’t been enough research to see how it will be beneficial in the long run, they do point out several potential benefits of vaping nicotine salts.

The best benefit that vapers like about nicotine salt is that they receive nicotine a lot quicker. Nicotine salts are in their natural state which makes it easier for the body to absorb them and sustain a longer nicotine fix.

Another benefit is that you can opt for higher nicotine e-juices, this is especially beneficial for previous smokers. Instead of having to settle for a 6-12mg, you can get 35mg or 60mg. This will result in using less of your e-juice because you won’t need to vape as much to get that strong throat hit.

Lastly, you no longer have to spend money on a powerful device! Nicotine salts deliver the nicotine more efficiently, it’s a straight throat hit. So you don’t need a 100-200w mod to satisfy your nicotine craving. You can opt for something more compact like the Sigelei Wehe Compak kit.

HOW DO YOU VAPE WITH NICOTINE SALT?

Like we stated earlier, nicotine salt delivers nicotine more efficiently so it is ideal to use a low powered device. We do not recommend sub-ohm vaping with nicotine salt, you will end up getting a very harsh nicotine hit that may put you off from trying nicotine salts ever again. Nicotine salt e-juices have very high nicotine levels so although you’re using a lower wattage device you are still going to receive a strong nicotine hit.
Use lower-powered devices, like the Wehe Compak, the JUUL, Eleaf iCare 2, kits that are similar to those.

WHERE CAN I BUY NICOTINE SALT E-JUICES?

E-liquid companies are quickly jumping on the nicotine salt train due to the increasing popularity in the vaping market. This is great because now you will have a larger selection to choose from, and maybe your favorite e-juice company will jump on the train too.
A few companies that offer nicotine salt e-juice are CRFT, Mr. Salt E, Naked 100 Nicotine Salt Line, Savage E-liquids, and the list goes on! We are also going to be adding nicotine salt e-juices in our store very soon, so check back for those.
If you are a previous smoker and have trouble finding the perfect nicotine level then try out nicotine salts and see if it’s the perfect fit for you. Nicotine salt will continue to gradually increase in popularity so you’ll be seeing more of it in the vaping market. Why not start the New Year by trying something new? Who knows, maybe you’ll end up loving it!
