Nicotine in its natural state is found in tobacco in the form of salt. However, nicotine salts available on the market cannot be obtained directly from the tobacco leaves.
Over the course of years, tobacco companies have managed to separate the purest form of nicotine. It is called a freebase nicotine.
Nic salts used for e-liquids are made by adding different acids to the freebase nicotine. Depending on the acid used, nic salts can have a little different physical characteristics but all of them share the same advantages.
Nicotine salts characteristics:
• Stronger and longer nicotine effect
Nic salts guarantee greater satisfaction comparable to the nicotine kick after smoking a standard cigarette. As the nicotine salts are in its natural state, they are also more biocompatible to the
human organism. As a result they are better absorbed to the bloodstream and the nicotine effect lasts longer.
• Less harsh on your throat
Nicotine salt e-liquids are incredibly smooth because they are more acidic (pH around 5). It means that one of the main sensation of vaping – the throat hit, becomes less harsh. Vapers can use higher nicotine strengths without any problems.
• Longer shelf life
Nicotine salts and other products with nic salts oxidize more slowly. Thanks to its stable molecules nic salts are less volatile and they can be stored longer and easier than the pure nicotine.
Nicotine salts are neutral in taste. They can be easily mixed with PG/VG and any flavours to obtain the best quality e-liquids.
• Perfect for e-cigarettes users
Abovementioned factors cause more satisfactory experience for the users. Because of powerful ‘nicotine kick’, products with nicotine salts are ideal for people who want to quit smoking or just
switch from ordinary cigarettes.
