Speaking of nicotine, we are all familiar with it as the main cause of addiction to cigarettes.
But what exactly is nicotine salt, a word often found in e-cigarettes? How is it different from nicotine?
This article introduces you to nicotine salts.
What is nicotine salt?
Nicotine salts are the form of nicotine found in tobacco leaves. Unlike nicotine, which is commonly used in e-vape, these salts are not just nicotine; They are compounds that contain nicotine and other organic ingredients.
It may combine with one or more of the chemicals in tobacco leaves, but the result is the same – a more stable molecule is formed.
The greatest significance of nicotine salt is to solve the problem of nicotine delivery efficiency. Regular “free base nicotine” vapes are not ideal for trying to improve the flow of nicotine into the blood from vape devices, so it is difficult for vape users to get the same satisfaction as smoking, and the high nicotine content only overirritates the throat and reaches only a small fraction of the blood in the real need for nicotine in the effective time.
High levels of nicotine overirritate the throat and reduce the user experience
Nicotine salts are more penetrating than “free base nicotine” and increase the amount of nicotine that can penetrate into the bloodstream in the same amount of time, thus providing a solution that can be absorbed into the bloodstream in a similar way to real nicotine without over-irritating the throat. This is the reason why JUUL, PHIX, MT and other small cigarettes are recognized by a considerable number of smokers.
Why is it that nicotine salts are now used in most cigarettes?
Get more nicotine quickly and, in general, get your nicotine fix faster than regular nicotine.
▲ Save more oil, nicotine salt oil will allow you to use less oil to meet your estimated nicotine intake.
▲ Longer shelf life, the nicotine salt is more stable than the free base nicotine, which means that the nicotine salt stock solution can last longer in storage without nicotine degradation. In contrast, nicotine salts are more easily absorbed and excreted from the body than nicotine, with less impact on the body.
▲ Higher satisfaction, smoother intake of nicotine salt, very light color and taste, will not affect the reduction of tobacco, fruit and other flavors, smooth taste, improve users’ sense of experience and satisfaction.
