What is nic salt e-liquid?

Salt nic or nicotine salts are a type of nicotine, in liquid form, which is found naturally in the tobacco leaf. Nicotine salts were introduced to the vaping market in 2015 and have grown massively in popularity since then.

The type of nicotine used in nic salt e-liquids provides a more efficient way of entry into the bloodstream and is more readily absorbed via the lungs, reducing cravings and increasing perceived satisfaction.

Nicotine salts provide a smoother hit and are far less harsh on the throat, with no reduction in strength. This is great if you are just giving up smoking tobacco. Salt nicotine is also an efficient carrier of flavour without a reduction in flavour strength like traditional e-liquid nicotine.

How are nicotine salt e-liquids made?

Nicotine salts are made by first taking traditional 'freebase' nicotine and adding benzoic acid. This reduces the pH level, making the solution more acidic (Less alkaline) and less harsh on the throat. This process also has the added benefit of making the nicotine salts vaporise more efficiently at lower temperatures and readily absorbed into the bloodstream.

Nic salt e-liquids are excellent for those looking to give up smoking cigarettes and tobacco and are ideal for mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping.

Are nic salts better than traditional nicotine?

Nicotine salts are great for those just looking to give up smoking cigarettes and tobacco; they are also great for those with persistent cravings, along with vapers who are sensitive to 'throat hit'.

Vaping traditional 'freebase' nicotine will provide less nicotine than a cigarette. Hence, nicotine salts are ideal for those who have recently quit, as you will require a higher nicotine dose initially to prevent intense cravings. You can gradually reduce your nicotine intake over time.

Salt nics are also great for those who are looking to reduce the amount of e-liquid they vape, as you require less e-liquid in total to deliver the same or more nicotine. For example, one puff of nicotine salt e-liquid may contain the same amount of e-liquid as two or three puffs of 'freebase' nicotine salt, depending on nicotine mg, etc.

What nicotine strength is best for you?

Which strength of nic salt e-liquid is best for you will depend on several factors, including how many cigarettes you currently smoke or which strength of e-liquid you currently vape. As a rule of thumb, a 10ml bottle of salt nic e-liquid is equivalent to around 60-100 tobacco cigarettes; this should give you an idea of how much e-liquid best suits you.

What is the difference between nic salt and e-liquid?

The difference between nic salt and e-liquid is that salt nicotine contains an additive called benzoic acid. Benzoic acid lowers the pH level, making the solution less alkali, meaning it is less harsh on the throat. This also means the nicotine enters the body faster, reducing cravings. Salt nicotine is great if you are giving up smoking tobacco or cigarettes; we recommend it for this reason. In our experience, you are more likely to give up smoking tobacco and maintain abstinence, as nicotine delivery is more efficient.
