Learn more about nic salts and if they are the right choice for you!
Nicotine salts have been around for a while, but many vapers are still unsure what they actually are. So are nicotine salts safe? Read on to find out more!
What Are Nicotine Salts?
When starting your vaping journey, it can be pretty confusing learning all the different aspects of e-cigarettes and e-liquid. What’s the difference between MTL and DL? What does PG/VG mean? Plus many more questions. So it is no surprise that once the idea of a nicotine salt is introduced, vapers might just stick to what they know. However, they could be missing out on a vaping experience that is more suited to them.
Nic salts are designed to replicate the salt-based nicotine found in tobacco leaves, hence the name nic salt. Unlike freebase e-liquid, nic salt vape juice contains extra compounds which provide a sensation much closer to smoking, in addition to a more consistent hit of nicotine to satisfy the craving quicker than regular vape juice.
Nic salts are not for everyone, but it could be a solution for:
- New vapers who are struggling to get the required nicotine fix from freebase e-liquid.
- Experienced vapers who are looking for a smoother vape.
- Vapers looking to get stronger nicotine hits from less vape liquid.
- Stealth vapers who don’t want to produce large clouds to get their required amount of nicotine.
Are Nicotine Salts Safe?
At the moment there is nothing we have seen to suggest that nic salts aren’t just as safe to use as regular freebase e-liquid. The UK Health Security Agency also maintains that vaping is 95% safer than smoking. It is important however to still check the e-liquid you are using meets UK safety standards.
At The Electronic Cigarette Company we only stock the most reputable vaping brands while also conducting tests on our own brand products to make sure they meet all UK regulatory standards.
