Embrace the World of Nic Salt E-Liquids
Understanding Salt Nicotine
Salt nicotine e-liquids have revolutionised the vaping industry since their introduction in 2015. Their soaring popularity has prompted many leading e-liquid manufacturers to release a range of salt nicotine blends. Despite their widespread use, information about their composition, effects, and correct usage remains limited.
This guide aims to provide an overview of salt nicotine e-liquids and address some frequently asked questions.
Defining Salt Nicotine
Salt nicotine e-liquids differ from conventional freebase e-liquids in both their structure and their effects on the body. Salt nicotine compounds allow for faster absorption of nicotine and a more noticeable nicotine hit, which keeps cravings at bay for longer periods.
Standard e-liquids have a higher pH level than salt nicotine e-liquids, resulting in a more alkaline solution and the familiar 'throat hit' experienced during vaping. This can cause discomfort and be off-putting for some users. In contrast, salt nicotine has a lower or more neutral pH level, providing a smooth throat hit even at high nicotine strengths.
How to Use Salt Nicotine E-Liquids
Salt nicotine e-liquids typically come in higher strengths, such as 10mg and 20mg, and are commonly available in 50% VG formulations. Due to their composition, it is recommended to use salt nicotine e-liquids with MTL (mouth-to-lung) vape kits, such as pod kits and vape pens.
It is important to remember that salt nicotine delivers a stronger hit than many vapers may be accustomed to. We advise taking a break between puffs to gauge your need for continued vaping. Avoid chain vaping or continuous vaping, as this may result in an overwhelming nicotine hit.
When selecting your ideal nicotine content, it is best to start with a low concentration and gradually increase as needed. Despite offering a smoother throat hit, most salt nicotine e-liquids are high in nicotine content, and overuse can lead to headaches or drowsiness.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Nicotine Salts
Nicotine salts have their pros and cons. They may not be suitable for all vapers, as their high nicotine content might be too intense for some. Additionally, salt nicotine e-liquids are not currently available in high VG concentrations, which may be a drawback for cloud chasers or sub-ohm vapers. However, salt nicotine shots can be added to high VG shortfill e-liquids if you're eager to try nicotine salts.
On the other hand, the high nicotine content in salt nicotine e-liquids means you'll likely vape less frequently to satisfy your cravings, conserving e-liquid and battery life. Furthermore, salt nicotine e-liquids are less likely to compromise flavour compared to standard blends.
Nicotine salts have experienced a surge in popularity for a reason: they cater to the needs of many vapers. It's important to store salt nicotine e-liquids in a cool, dry place at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. Additionally, salt nicotine has a longer shelf life than standard nicotine e-liquids, ensuring they remain fresh for longer.
