What are Nicotine Salts
Nicotine salts at its core is still nicotine that is found naturally in the usual tobacco leaf. To understand the difference between nicotine salts and the industry standard "freebase nicotine" we will first look at what convention freebase nicotine is. Freebase nicotine is produced when premium vape juice companies extract protons from nicotine. In order to do this manufacturers utilize ammonia which strips the protons from nicotine but also separates the salts that are naturally found in the tobacco leaves thus leaving us with the end product of freebase nicotine found in your conventional e-liquids. Nicotine salts on the other hand is simply nicotine in their natural state no chemicals or extractions used.
Benefits of Nicotine Salts
Although nicotine salts are relatively new in the vaping world, the benefits of nicotine salts are already apparent. One of which is the body absorbs this form of nicotine way more efficiently than the conventional freebase version, and also nicotine salts are sustained longer in our system leading to a longer lasting nicotine fix. Thus when vaping nicotine salts you will notice the effects of nicotine faster and it will last longer. Another benefit is that the "throat-hit" salted nicotine is going to provide is stronger, similar to physical cigarettes. Therefore vapers who are attempting to kick the habit of smoking cigarettes now have a better alternative to transition to vaping.
How to Use Nicotine Salts
Vaping nicotine salts are very different than vaping conventional freebase nicotine. First off it is not recommended to be used on any sub-ohm devices or tanks. Instead low powered pod systems are highly recommended such as the Suorin Drop, or Smok Infinix. This is mainly because nicotine salts are produced with higher nicotine levels usually at 25mg or 50mg. With a lower powered pod device you will not notice that you are vaping higher nicotine levels aside from your body feeling the nicotine.
