What are Nicotine Salts?
In the beginning of electronic cigarettes, only small devices were available to consumers. E-cigs eventually became bigger and better utilizing sub ohm tanks and powerful batteries. However, a new kind of device along with a new type of e-liquid has been taking over the market recently. These “pod system” devices are much smaller and use a “nicotine salt” or simply “nic salt” that allows for better absorption of the nicotine and promises to cure nicotine cravings.
Nic Salt E-liquid is comprised of the same exact nicotine that is found in its natural state within a tobacco leaf as “freebase” (standard) nicotine that you would find in standard e-liquid. However, benzoic acid is added to lower the pH levels of nicotine, which reduces alkalinity in the process. This allows the mixture to be vaped at lower temperatures with higher concentrations of nicotine. PAX Labs, the maker of the Juul Device, is one of the pioneers of nic salts and the holder of a patent for this process.
Now there are many manufacturers that are making nicotine salt e-liquid in addition to their standard eliquid:
Naked 100, Salt Bae, Candy King, and Holy Cannoli are a few new nic salts that can be found on the market.
Here are a few of the most popular pod system devices that utilize nic salts: Juul, Smok Rolo Badge, Smok Novo, Suorin Drop, and Suorin Air, and Tesla T-Pod.
