What is Salted Nicotine?
Posted on 08 December 2017
The most common nicotine is found in your everyday E-Liquid is known as “freebase nicotine”.
Let’s break down the difference between Nicotine Salt and Freebase Nicotine.
Nicotine Salt is a more concentrated and condensed form of nicotine naturally found in tobacco leaves. Ultimately, although it’s originally a form of salt, this form of nicotine will affect the body in the same way as Freebase nicotine, meaning they have no difference in terms of health risks.
But because Nicotine Salt based E Liquids are higher in the concentration of nicotine, this results in:
- The user consuming less E-liquid
- Quicker satisfaction for one’s nicotine craving
- Smoother hit (as it will use less voltage on your device)
- Higher efficiency use on low-power devices
Although Nicotine Salt may come off as more costly, Nicotine Salt actually has a longer shelf life due to salt being more stable-- with less oxidation, Nicotine Salt will last longer in storage without the degradation of the nicotine effects.
Also, juices that contain Nicotine Salt should not be used at a high wattage; so there's no need for more complicated high powered devices. It’s recommended for use with devices that are smaller and more simplistic such as the LIMITLESS PULSE KIT. A simple and stealthy vape; (Nicotine Salt contains significantly higher levels of nicotine per milliliter, and therefore should NOT be used in sub-ohm devices) a few puffs may be all it takes to kick your cravings to the curb-- and by doing so, not only are consuming less E Liquid, you are also saving money on replacement coils and using up less battery to keep you going for the day.
Why Nicotine Salt?
With the higher concentration of nicotine found in Nicotine Salt based E Liquid, vaping and inhalation is more tolerable allowing users to experience a stronger nicotine intake without the harsh effect of its pull; so whether it is 35mg or 50mg of Nicotine Salt based E Liquid, it will generate a greater satisfaction than a higher nicotine level in Freebase nicotine.
There are many mixed reviews on Nicotine Salt based E Liquid due to its significantly higher nicotine content. How it differs from the traditional cigarette is actually quite simple. To get into it, we should first have a firm understanding of two significant terms pertaining to nicotine-consumption and absorption. The main factors linked to the effects of nicotine on the human body are the levels of it in one’s bloodstream, as well as the actual speed of absorption.
Here is a chart produced by Juul indicating their formula results in a very similar blood nicotine level per time after first puff as tobacco cigarettes do.
Researchers have discovered that specific nicotine salts actually appeared to work better than freebase nicotine e-liquid. They call the finding “unexpected,” but tests of the blood nicotine levels obtained by users confirm the results.
