Why a Salt Nicotine is a Great Starting Point for Ex-smokers

At Solace Vapor we're proud to say that we were the first company to add nicotine salts to our e-liquids.  We knew that this form of nicotine could satisfy smokers’ cravings more effectively than the freebase nicotine that dominated the vape juice industry at the time.  With more smokers switching to vaping than ever before, it’s safe to say that we weren’t wrong.

Thanks to salt-based nicotine, ex smokers can get all of the satisfaction of smoking from a vapor alternative.  A simple puff of one of our salt nic e-liquids can satisfy those cravings instantly.  If you’ve been doubtful that nic salt e-juices have what it takes to keep your cigarette cravings at bay, this article just may change your mind. 

Vaping is More Popular Among Ex-Smokers than Ever Before

Our industry is still relatively new and the technology behind it is constantly evolving.  Of course, the main goal of this industry is to provide smokers with an alternative to harmful cigarette smoking.  Vaping allows the user to have an experience that’s very similar to that of their former habit.

Just a few years ago, it seemed that the best way for people to satisfy their cigarette cravings was to use large, heavy box mod devices that came with lots of adjustable settings.  The problem was that these devices could be rather intimidating to smokers who weren’t familiar with this type of technology.  Now, however, thanks to nicotine salts, users can get their fix with much simpler, smaller units known as “pod mods”. 

Of course, the main reason why vaping is more successful at converting smokers than ever before is because of the salt nicotine that goes into the e-liquids.  This revolutionary ingredient finally gives smokers exactly what they crave as soon as they inhale.

What is Salt Nicotine?

Salt nicotine is a chemical compound that naturally exists in the tobacco plant.  Up until the last year or so, almost every e-liquid was made with freebase nicotine, a type of nicotine that was chemically altered by the tobacco industry to be much more potent.

The problem with freebase nicotine is that it’s very unstable compared to its salt-based counterpart.  When vaping an e-liquid with a high amount of freebase nicotine, the user often experiences a harsh, irritating sensation along the throat.  This has to do with the fact that freebase nicotine has a much higher PH level than salt nicotine, meaning that the higher the concentration, the more alkaline it becomes. 

Because of that dreaded harshness associated with freebase nicotine, many nicotine-craving vapers up until recently had no choice but to opt for low-nic e-juices that only marginally satisfied their cravings. 

Salt nicotine contains organic acid compounds that allow each hit to be more potent.  Because the nicotine comes straight from the tobacco plant, the user will experience a sensation that’s extremely similar to inhaling tobacco smoke.  The throat hit is smooth and gentle, offering the same stimulating buzz found in traditional cigarettes.

Simply put, salt nicotine allows the vaper to take in a higher concentration of nicotine than they would be able to with freebase nicotine.  This allows them to get a higher dose of nicotine per puff, allowing them to feel satisfied after each vape session.  Unlike freebase nicotine, salt nic doesn’t tend to feel harsh when inhaled.

Selecting the Ideal Salt Nic E-Liquid

For countless former smokers, discovering the world of salt nic e-liquids opens up a world of possibilities including different flavors and nicotine strengths.  However, many first-time vapers prefer to vape what they’re used to, opting for tobacco-flavored e-liquids that allow them to recreate the experience of smoking as much as possible.

Tobacco-flavored e-liquids remain popular because they have that smoky, rich taste that reminds vapers of their favorite cigarette brands.  For those who used to indulge in menthol cigarettes, there are plenty of menthol-infused tobacco flavors that combine high-quality tobacco with icy menthol.

However, many former smokers quickly discover that the huge variety of salt nic flavors available is worth exploring.  Among the most popular salt nic e-liquid flavors on the market today are mango, strawberry, vanilla custard, tobacco and mint.

How to Select the Perfect Pod System for Your Salt Nic E-Liquid

One thing that’s very important to keep in mind is that e-liquids that are made with salt nicotine are only compatible with a pod mod vaping system.  This has to do with the fact that nicotine salts require a certain wattage range as well as a specific type of coil.

With freebase nicotine e-liquids, users tend to go with box mod devices that are very large and heavy.  These devices are used at high wattage levels.  Pod mod systems, on the other hand, are low-wattage devices that ensure that each puff is smooth and satisfying.  Additionally, the coils have higher resistance levels than the coils that are used with box mod systems. 

Many smokers prefer pod mods anyway, mainly because they’re very user-friendly and can fit into a pocket or purse easily and discreetly.  Lightweight and slim, pod mods feel more like cigarettes in the hand.  Plus, many of them are draw-activated, meaning that the user pulls on the device in order to take in vapor, allowing for an experience that’s much closer to puffing on a cigarette.

Today, you can find an enormous range of pod mods on the market that are compatible with nic salt e-juices.  Whether you want an extremely small, very simple device or a pod mod that allows you to adjust a wide range of settings, there’s absolutely a system out there to meet your preferences.
