What Are Nicotine Salt E Liquids?
Nicotine Salt e-liquids, often referred to as nic salts, are intended to mimic the strength and sensation of the nicotine content found in traditional tobacco cigarettes. Nicotine salts also deliver nicotine to the blood stream far quicker than standard nicotine-containing e-liquids, providing immediate relief from cravings.
How do Nic Salts work?
Most e-liquids on the market use a form of nicotine called freebase nicotine. With nicotine salt e-liquids, however, the addition of benzoic acids reacts to the nicotine, reducing its alkalinity to realise its salt form. This form of salt nicotine is more rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, provides a gentler throat sensation when vaped and can also be vaped at higher temperatures and at higher concentrations of nicotine, something that would be quite uncomfortable with ordinary freebase nicotine.
