What are nicotine salts?
Nicotine salts are made up of exactly the same nicotine that is found in its natural state in the tobacco leaf. If this form of nicotine were added to the liquid you and I vaporise, we would have to vaporise it at extremely high temperatures for the nicotine solution to be effective, and it still would not be as easily absorbed as freebase nicotine. Similar to Freebase, Nic Salt Juice also needs to be modified.
What are the benefits of nicotine salt?
The first benefit is satisfaction. Many vapers who try traditional liquids for the first time often find that they don't get the same satisfaction or "hit" from their nicotine. Furthermore, it may not be enough to satisfy their cravings.
The second advantage of nicotine salts is a softer nicotine hit. A big problem for many "potential" vapers is that conventional e-liquids are too harsh and nicotine is to blame. Cigarette companies use anaesthetics like menthol or eugenol to cover up and mask the harshness. Vape juices don't, so the softer feel of nicotine salt liquids makes a big difference.
The third advantage is that the taste is less affected. Those of us who have kicked the habit and prefer nicotine-free e-liquids can notice a distinct difference in taste despite smoking the same product. This is because freebase nicotine affects the overall flavour of the liquid. Nic salt juice has virtually no effect in this area, resulting in a richer, more aromatic and enjoyable vapour experience.
The last advantage is the best advantage, and that is that it is cheaper. Everything is almost significantly more expensive than a tiny little vape pen as well as all the premium e-liquids that go into the vape pen. If you just need an inexpensive and discreet vaping experience that gives you just the right amount of nicotine, salts are for you.
Nicotine salts are usually higher in PG as they are suitable for all starter kits and pod style devices, which makes sense as nicotine salts are usually for new vapers.
Nic Salts combined with a small starter kit and/or pod device is an excellent choice as a first time vape kit and e-liquid combination, but also great as a second set up for any experienced vapers on the go as it has a small form factor and produces less intrusive vapours. Perfect for when you're on the go to your local pub.
Is Nic Salt only available in 10ml bottles?
Yes, due to EU TPD regulations, anything containing nicotine cannot be sold in bottles with more than 20mg nicotine strength and no larger than 10ml. All of our Nic Salts are fully UK/EU TPD compliant and are sold in 10ml bottles for use with refillable devices. We also sell pre-filled pods of nic salts for devices, pod-systems.
