What is Salt Nic?

Salt Nicotine, commonly known as Salt Nic, is a form of nicotine that is added to ejuice. Salt nic has recently taken the vape market by storm because of it’s altered properties that allow for a smoother, more enjoyable vape.

Unlike traditional freebase nicotine, salt nic goes through a different manufacturing process that allows draws from your vape to be much smoother. With traditional nicotine, vaping can be harsh on your throat. Salt nic is not only smoother, but your body actually absorbs the nicotine much quicker and lasts longer.

So, what’s the difference between regular freebase nicotine in ejuice versus salt nicotine? Freebase nicotine is manufactured by going through a process that adds ammonia, or a similar base, to remove the protons from nicotine. This de-pronated nicotine creates a freebase that is then added to ejuice. Unlike freebase form, salt nic is in a more stable form and found naturally in tobacco leaves. Salt nic ejuices are created by taking the natural nicotine from tobacco leaves, processing them through several phases and then adding a base, such as benzoic acid, to lower the pH. This process makes it easier for the body to absorb nicotine and less harsh to vape. Both salt nic and freebase nicotine are added to ejuice, which usually consist of a blend of VG/PG and flavoring.

What are the pros of Salt Nic?

  • More nicotine absorbed quickly
  • You can use juices with higher nicotine levels
  • Longer shelf life
  • Less vaping required to achieve satisfaction
  • Used with low-wattage devices

Salt nic eliquids should only be used with low-wattage devices. Because of salt nic’s high nicotine concentration, vaping high wattage mods or sub-ohm devices would cause the throat hit to be harsh and would only result in excessive nicotine consumption. Stick to low watt devices, like pod systems and pens when using salt nic eliquids.

What are the cons of Salt Nic?

  • Not for high wattage or sub-ohms systems
  • Closed systems can be costly
  • Cartridges or pods are not universal
  • Low vapor production (ie: not for cloud blowers)
  • Limited nicotine strength selection

Salt nic overcomes a big obstacle when it comes to vaping; ex-smokers are finding the experience more satisfying with a lasting effect. Because of the better absorption rate and smooth hit that mimics a cigarette, people are finding themselves switching to closed systems instead of buying another pack.
