Salts & E-Juice Information
Nicotine Salts, also know as Nic Salts or Salt Nic, It may shock you that nicotine salts are the only naturally occurring nicotine out there. Using nicotine salts allows the body to more efficiently and quickly absorb the nicotine without the need to vape at extremely high temperatures.
1. You’ll get more nicotine
The main ingredient used in e-juice used for forming nicsalts is benzoic acid. What this acid does when paired with the right form of vaporizer is that it produces more stable nicotine delivery, which means you will get more nicotine to your blood in a shorter period of time, thus enhancing your whole vaping experience.
2. Has a longer shelf life.
The lower volatility in nicsalt based e-juice means nicsalts are way more stable as compared to freebase nicotine. This in turn means that e-juice based off of nicsalts has the capacity to last longer in storage without being degraded.
3. Works with most newer e-liquid Vaporizers
With some e-juices, you’ll need a powerful device if you are to have a great vaping experience, this isn’t the case when using e-juice made from Nicotine Salts. Nicsalts are very efficient at producing vapor and delivering nicotine which explains why they go well most devices, regardless of the device’s power.
Another benefit of Nicotine salts emanates from their stability. I had said above that they are less harsh which means you won’t get a throat burn when vaping e-juice made from them. They are also less susceptible to oxidation which goes a long way in reducing the risks associated with the process.
5. Last Thing about Nicsalts
When we say, e-juice made from nicsalts is less harsh to vape, we are simply saying that vapor produced by Nicsalts tastes smoother and is absorbed faster by the body. And another thing about Nicsalts is when vaping them, you will get an instant nicotine fix.
Here's A Helpful Chart That Displays Nicotine Levels:
0mg/mL Nicotine This means that there is no nicotine in your E-Liquid mixture.
Zero nicotine levels are usually ordered by people who have quit smoking but still have an oral fixation and use an electronic cigarette to satisfy it.
6mg/mL Nicotine This level of nicotine is the lightest level offered.
For people who wish to enjoy the smallest possible nicotine level while still enjoying a full E-liquid taste.
This is commonly the last level in "stepping."
12mg/mL Nicotine On the lower end of the spectrum, 12mg/ml is a comfortable level for people who prefer nicotine, but aren't heavy vapers.
This level is also common for people who used to smoke light cigarettes.
18mg/ml Nicotine This is the middle of the road in terms of nicotine.
Most vapers who were former smokers enjoy this level because it delivers the perfect amount of nicotine in each vape.
20mg/ml Nicotine This is on the high side of nicotine levels and is commonly preferred by people who were formally heavy smokers (about a pack per day).
It has a noticeable nicotine level that many former smokers enjoy.
1. Smoking to Compensate:
Because your body has become used to having a certain amount of nicotine in it, choosing a lighter replacement than the original tobacco based product will typically result in compensation smoking. This means that you will wind up smoking (or vaping) more to make up for the nicotine your body needs and craves. For example, if you smoke a regular strength cigarette and you choose an e-cigarette that is lighter in nicotine strength, you will unintentionally smoke (or vape) more than before to compensate for the nicotine loss and withdrawal.
If you choose a lower nicotine level than what you are used to, your body will still crave it’s normal amount of nicotine and therefore you may think that the e-cigarette doesn’t work for you and you’ll go back to smoking regular cigarettes. When, in fact, it was just a matter of customizing and changing your eliquid nicotine strength.
2. Too much throat hit
On the other hand, if you currently smoke a light tobacco based cigarette and you choose a full strength e-liquid strength, you will overload your body with more nicotine than it is used to while you were smoking tobacco-based cigarettes. The throat hit may be too intense for you. This can result in not liking the e-cigarette, when, in fact, you just have the wrong eliquid nicotine strength.
More Is Not Always Better
New users of electronic cigarettes tend to choose very strong e-liquids the first time.
They remember the pain and discomfort of withdrawal symptoms when they have tried to stop smoking cigarettes in the past and are afraid this will happen again during the switch to the electronic cigarette.
More experienced users know this is not the case.
The electronic cigarette can and does deliver plenty of nicotine, and with adequate nicotine levels in your E-liquid you shouldn’t feel any withdrawal symptoms when making the switch.
Remember, you can always smoke more of an e-liquid that is a little too low for you, but if you get an e-liquid that is too high, you can make yourself sick or risk increasing your addiction to nicotine.
Be alert for symptoms of nicotine overdose.
The most common symptoms include headache, nausea, and dizziness.
If you experience any of these symptoms discontinue use of all nicotine products and speak to your doctor.
Avoid nicotine overdose by picking a sensible nicotine level for you.
Don’t let fear of nicotine withdrawals cause you to pick a level that is too high.
The electronic cigarette can be an enjoyable and easy switch from smoking cigarettes, just remember to use common sense, experiment, and listen to your body.
