There are over 9 million adults in the United States that are classified as “regular vapers” thus, the vaping industry is continuing to create new products to cope up with the growing demand.
One product, for example, is salt nic juice. Salt nic juice, otherwise known as nicotine salts or salt vape juice is a type of vape juice that contains more nicotine compared to a classic e-juice.
What is Salt Nic Juice?
Salt vape juice does not literally mean to be a salty flavored e-juice. In fact, the “salt” that is meant here is not the salt that you put on your fries.
What is meant is “salt” as in the terms of chemistry. To be able to understand what we are talking about, let us go first on how we took the nicotine.
You probably know that nicotine is a substance that can be found in the tobacco plant. You feel a “buzz” when you smoke tobacco because of the nicotine.
Vape juice is produced when you extract the nicotine from a tobacco leaf and concentrate it in a liquid that can be used to vape. “Freebase nicotine” is the term used to pertain to the nicotine that was isolated from extraction.
On the other hand, the nicotine that is not isolated from the tobacco is known as salt. A salt is a chemical that is formed from a bond between something that has a positive charge and something that has a negative charge.
In short, salt nic juice is chemically altered nicotine that offers a number of benefits compared to regular vape juice.
The Differences Between “Regular” Freebase Nicotine and Salt Nic Juice.
1. Nicotine Is Absorbed In a Higher Rate. Due to the added benzoic acid component, your body can absorb and metabolize more amount, and more quickly, the nicotine in salt n juice compared to freebase nicotine.
2. Tastes Less “Harsh”
With higher levels of nicotine, a harsh throat burn and taste is usually created because of the high alkalinity of freebase nicotine. If you desire stronger hits of nicotine, you have to either vape plenty of low concentration juice, or you have to live through unpleasant and harsh hits of high concentrated juices.
With salt vape juice, that is not the case. Salt vape juice is more acidic because of the benzoic acid added to it. Even with high levels of nicotine like around 50 mg, the throat burn in salt nic juice is not as harsh.
Other Things You Should Keep In Mind.
