With over 9 million people in America that are considered to be “regular vapers,” the vape industry is constantly making new products in order to meet the growing demand.
Salt nic juice is one example of those products. Salt nic juice, or sometimes called as salt vape juice or nicotine salt. Is a kind of vape juice that has more nicotine content than a regular e-juice.
Definition of Salt Nic Juice.
A salt vape juice is not just a salty-flavored juice. Actually, the “salt” in here does not refer to the salt that we put on our french fries.
What is meant is “salt” as in the terms of chemistry. We will discuss first how we get nicotine so you will understand totally what we mean.
Perhaps you already know that a nicotine is a drug that can be found in tobacco plant. Whenever you smoke tobacco, the “buzz” that you feel is due to 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. The extraction isolates nicotine and is called “freebase nicotine.”
However, salt is known to be the nicotine that is not isolated from tobacco. A chemical that is created because of a bond between something with a positive charge and something with a negative charge is salt.
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. Salt Nic Juice Has Higher Absorption 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. Has Lesser Harsh Taste.
Because of the high alkalinity of freebase nicotine, higher levels of nicotine often create a harsh throat burn and taste. You have to either endure unpleasant and harsh hits of high concentrated juices or you have to take many low concentration juice if you want stronger nicotine hits.
That is not applicable with salt vape juice. Due to the benzoic acid added to salt vape juice, it is more acidic. 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.
You might be wondering why people prefer the regular vape juice even if there is a stronger, more worth it, and cheaper one existing.
You might be confused why more people opt to vape with a regular vape juice when there is a stronger, more efficient and cheaper juice existing. Although there are bountiful of benefits from using a salt vape juice, not everyone desires to take high doses of nicotine.
