Nicotine Salts | A brand new technology and the most exciting technology to come to vaping!
The standard nicotine you will be used to in regular e-liquid is commonly called freebase nicotine. This style of nicotine is not bonded to anything else so it is quite volatile meaning it is an easily vapourised form of nicotine.
A nicotine salt is a more natural state of nicotine - closer to the form nicotine is found in tobacco leaf. It is made up of freebase nicotine bonded with one or more organic compounds to create a more stable molecule.
This more natural make up of nicotine creates a molecule with a different pH compared to freebase nicotine. pH corresponds to throat hit so a more neutral pH, as found in nicotine salts, creates less of a throat hit - even at high nicotine levels. This explains why a 25mg nicotine salt feels more like a 9mg throat hit.
Nicotine Absorption: Nicotine is absorbed into the blood stream faster meaning you get a more satisfying vape faster and without having to vape as often.
Extended Shelf Life:As the nicotine salt is a more stable molecule, shelf life for the product is longer than standard freebase nicotine.
Portability and Convenience:Because nicotine salts allow for higher nicotine levels devices can be much smaller and compact compared to standard vaping devices but still provide a satisfying vape!
