First Question...What's the Connection Between Salt And Nicotine?

Salt can be a wonderful thing. Just think about salted pretzels, a hot bath with Epsom salt, an order of steak fries with salt sprinkled on them or even – Salt Bae. You get the picture. Salt can create a number of great experiences. On the other hand, salt can ruin some things as well. Your cool suede winter boots, that recipe that actually called for sugar, your blood pressure and many other things.

In the case of nicotine salts, or nic salts, don't be alarmed. The name doesn't imply that you'll get a hit that tastes like you ate a handful of table salt. What it does mean is that you can get a discreet, economical vaping experience that packs a nice nicotine punch.

What is Salt-Based Nicotine?

With vaping, you can go the freebase nicotine e-liquid route or you can opt for nicotine salt e liquids. Freebase nicotine is the purest form of nicotine. Phillip Morris developed freebase nicotine in the 60s as a means to make cigarettes stronger and keep people puffing. The process of freebasing nicotine involves making the substance's effect more intense by converting it from a salt to its base form. Ingredients are then introduced to strip protons and impurities from the nicotine salts and increase their alkalinity. This is done to make it easier for nicotine to be absorbed through the body's membranes. But, keep in mind that increased alkalinity typically leads to a stronger throat hit.

Nicotine salts are made with nicotine in its natural form and benzoic acid. Benzoic acid allows the nicotine salts to vaporize at much lower temperatures and to be absorbed like freebase nicotine. And because benzoic acid decreases the alkalinity in nicotine salts, the end result is a much smoother vaping experience.

Second Question...What is Salt E-Liquid Made Of?

You might think that nic salt e liquids are different in composition from traditional vape juice options on the market because of the way the nicotine is extracted. In actuality, they're not. Salt nicotine e-liquid is made with propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin and a variety of flavors — about the same as freebase nicotine vape juice.

Speaking of vape salt juice flavors, you'll find a variety of options at Halo Cigs that speak to your flavor cravings. We have seven flavor categories that cover fruit-, menthol- and tobacco-inspired nic salt e-liquids. So, you don't have to be worried about. having less vape salt juice options than you would find with freebase nicotine e-liquids.

So Who Should Use Nicotine Salt E-Liquid?

If you want to quit smoking and transition to vaping, nic salt vape juice might be a good option for you. Why? As we briefly mentioned before, nicotine salts help create smoother hits while vaping. The smoother the hits, the better because you can still get a similar effect to smoking without the harshness associated with it – raw throat, smelly clothes, tar-stained teeth and even the ashes and butts that are left behind.

Here are a few more reasons to consider nicotine salts.

  • With nic salts, you can get more nicotine in a single puff than you can from a cigarette, making vape salt juice far more economical in the long run compared to cigarettes.
  • Nicotine salts are absorbed quickly, providing a similar effect to smoking cigarettes.
  • Salt nicotine works well with low-wattage pod systems or smaller vape pens.
  • If you want to vape and be discreet about it, you can. Your device won't produce those billowy clouds that some freebase nicotine vape juices can create. You also won't have to air out your home or use your favorite body spray to cover up the smell of cigarettes.
