If you’ve recently been trying to transition from smoking to vaping, you may have often felt frustrated that your vaping device “doesn’t feel like a cigarette” or you “just can’t seem to get a good hit” of nicotine. It was for situations like these that nicotine salts were introduced.

Nicotine salts – or “nic salts”, as they’re also often called – arrived onto the e-liquids market relatively recently, and could greatly help you to inhale more nicotine as you vape, without incurring a harsh sensation in the throat.

Furthermore, as quality e-liquids suppliers, we offer a wide range of reputable, satisfying and great-value nic salts here at £1 Vape.

What exactly are nicotine salts?

The term “nicotine salts” is misleading; this isn’t referring to the type of salt you might keep in your kitchen next to the pepper or find in a bag of ready-salted crisps. The “salts” part of the name originates from the natural nicotine salts contained in tobacco plants.

The nicotine salts we offer are made from these natural salts; therefore, our nic salts should more properly be dubbed e-liquids or vape juices, rather than salts. It’s also important to distinguish our nicotine salts from what is often referred to as freebase nicotine.

This is the type of nicotine you would usually vape; however, it is made from not only extracting the natural nicotine salts from tobacco plants, but also using chemicals to increase these salts’ pH levels. The process of making nicotine salt e-liquids leaves those chemicals out of the equation.

Why nic salts can be useful for smokers trying to quit

As the nicotine sourced for our nic salt e-liquids is not mixed with chemicals as it is extracted from the plant, these e-liquids are much more soothing on the throat than freebase nicotine. As a result, the vaper can comfortably take in higher concentrations of nicotine in one go.

Therefore, in vaping nicotine salts rather than freebase nicotine, you can get an experience that feels much closer to that of tobacco smoking. This could significantly help to ease your transition from tobacco smoking to vaping, a move that would bode well for your overall health.

If you are thinking of buying some nicotine salts to help satiate your nicotine cravings, keep in mind that, as quality e-liquids suppliers, we offer nic salts in various enticing flavours. We emphasise, however, that these salts must only be used in small, low-wattage vape devices – and should never be used in high-powered sub-ohm e-cigarettes.
