What are Nic Salts ?

Nicotine Salts, What Are They?

Nicotine salt e-liquids, often referred to as nic salts, are designed to mimic the strength and sensation of the nicotine found in a traditional tobacco cigarette and are formed in the presence of acid rather than alkaline, as is the case with most standard e-liquids.

Although they are primarily intended for use with pod systems, nic salts can in fact be used with any tank with a high resistance coil. Nic salts with a low nicotine strength can even be used in sub ohm devices, offering a combination of intense flavour and a deeply satisfying throat hit.

Nicotine Salts, What Are The Benefits?

There are many benefits to vaping nicotine salt e-liquids, including a satisfying, smooth delivery of nicotine, a pleasant throat hit and reduced impact on the overall flavour of the e-liquid.

Perhaps most appealing is their ability to deliver nicotine to the blood stream far more quickly than standard nicotine-containing e-liquids, making for an immediately satisfying vape which is particularly appealing to heavy smokers who are looking for an effective cessation aid.

Because nic salts are absorbed into the bloodstream so quickly and easily, you should notice the ‘rush’ of nicotine far more immediately than with standard e-liquids – even those with a high nicotine content. This provides an immediate feeling of satisfaction, and offers effective, long-lasting relief from cravings.

In spite of their high nicotine content, nic salts do not feel harsh on the throat in the manner that standard e-liquids with a high nicotine content do. This allows you to enjoy a whole spectrum of flavours including tobaccos, fruits and menthols without the flavour being overpowered or compromised by the harshness of the nicotine.

It is important to remember that nic salt e-liquids are far stronger than standard e-liquids, and as such should not be vaped in the same way. With such a high delivery of nicotine it would be not be wise to vape these liquids continuously as you will run the risk of overloading the bloodstream with nicotine. This can lead to symptoms of illness including but not limited to nausea, dizziness, headaches and dehydration, so we advise that you vape nic salt liquids sparingly, or with the same regularity as you would normally smoke traditional tobacco cigarettes.
