As is well known, the electronic cigarette industry is constantly evolving. New devices are constantly appearing on the market, there are technological advances in their components, batteries have more and more autonomy, etc. In this section we will talk about a recent innovation in e-liquid ingredients which are nicotine salts.
Nicotine salts or nicotine salt, is a type of nicotine that is formed in tobacco leaves and is much more stable compared to the traditional one found in most electronic liquids.
It requires a higher temperature to vaporize properly, as ions do not travel to nicotine receptors as easily. They are created when the nicotine base is combined with an acid or multiple acids. This process creates a nicotine saline solution and reduces the throat hit.
Advantages of nicotine salts
- The main advantage and benefit of nicotine salt in e-liquids is that it gives a smoother throat hit when vaping at high concentrations of nicotine.
- This is very useful for those trying to quit smoking because the liquid together with the nicotine salt more closely mimics the effect of smoking a conventional cigarette.
- Nicotine salts are one of the most effective types of nicotine in helping cigarette smokers to get rid of this bad habit. Due to the higher content of nicotine, nicotine salts more closely resemble the effects of smoking a cigarette and thus help curb cravings.
Some of the most recommended liquids with nicotine salts are:
- American Luxury
- Route 66
- Fausto’s Deal
