Best Vaping Devices for Nicotine Salt E-juice
Conventional freebase nicotine is no longer the only option when vapers choose their e-liquids. Introduced a little over one year ago, Nicotine salt e-juice is becoming increasingly more popular among veteran and new vapers. Nicotine salt is a more efficient method of nicotine delivery because it provides an experience closely similar to a traditional cigarette. Delivery of nicotine in this form is more satisfying and the feeling of satisfaction is reached sooner.
What is the difference between nicotine salt e-juice and others?
This form of nicotine is the same that is found in tobacco leaves, which are the same as what is found in a cigarette with one slight difference. Nicotine salt in e-liquid contains benzoic acid which stabilizes the nicotine for use at the high temperatures experienced while vaping.
E-liquid containing nicotine salt allows the user to purchase at a higher nicotine concentration while also reducing the harsher throat hit of freebase nicotine and also at higher concentrations the feeling of satisfaction is achieved more efficiently.
Can I DIY nicotine salt e-juice?
People interested in making their own e-liquids at home now have many options when it comes to buying nicotine salt in pure form. Most DIY suppliers have this available across North America currently which has made making this at home more convenient. Another advantage of DIY e-liquid with nicotine salts is that the nicotine strength can be customized for different experiences.
Sub-Ohm and rebuildable users would not be able to vape the 20-24-36 and higher milligram concentrations in their cloud producing setups because the user would experience the effects of nicotine overdose which is very unpleasant.
Many DIY’ers have reported that replacing and even slightly increasing their recipes with nicotine salt results in a cleaner, better-tasting recipe while coming out much smoother as well.
