7 Things You Need to Know About Nicotine Salts

Nicotine salt eliquid is becoming more and more popular, as users found it to be more satisfying than regular eliquid. Smoother than regular vape juice, nicotine salts allow you to vape higher concentrations of nicotine. You consume less juice, making them more cost-efficient.

Here are 7 things you need to know about nicotine salts eliquid before vaping it.

1. What is Nicotine Salts eliquid?

The terms nicotine salts, nic salt, salt nic, or salt nicotine all mean the same thing. Its not the salt you put in your food, and it does not mean it will make your eliquid salty.

In tobacco leaves, nicotine is present in two distinct forms: diprotonated and monoprotonated. That means the nicotine bonds with certain acids in the plant to create a much more stable molecule. When that bonding happens, the result is a nicotine salt. There are different types of nicotine salts, depending on the acid involved in the whole process.

Since the only difference between nicotine salt eliquid and standard eliquid is the inclusion of benzoic acid, nicotine salt is probably no more or less safe than freebase nicotine eliquid. But it is still very safe for people to vape, based on WHO safety instruction: no more than 5mg per kilogram of body weight per day, which would equal about 345 mg for a 150-pound person — probably an impossible amount to vape.
