The 6 Commonly Asked Questions About Nic Salt

There are two typical types of nicotine available for vaping: freebase nicotine (traditional nicotine) and Nic Salts.

Nic Salts, also known as Nicotine Salts and Salt Nic, have become a mainstay in the vaping industry, and it’s no surprise why. But there are still many who are unsure about Nic Salts and what the point of them is. We answer the top six commonly asked questions about Nic Salts to set your mind at ease.

What are Nic Salts?

To sum up, Nic Salts are a Nicotine Salt E-Liquid used for vaping. These specialized Nicotine Salt E-Liquids offer a higher concentration of nicotine and are designed for better absorption. While vaping still delivers lower nicotine levels than cigarettes, Nic Salts in the UAE that are ESMA complaint, are a maximum strength of 20mg.

What sets Nic Salts apart from traditional freebase nicotine is the addition of an acid, like benzoic acid, in the extraction process. This acid lowers the pH level of nicotine, creating the unique Nic Salts formula.

What are the benefits of Nic Salts?

There are several benefits to using Nic Salts which overall create a better vaping experience. These innovative liquids blend nicotine with benzoic acid, ensuring optimal absorption into your bloodstream.

But that's not all - Nic Salts are also gentle on your throat. Unlike traditional high-strength E-Liquids, which can be harsh and uncomfortable, Nic Salts deliver a smoother and more pleasant vaping sensation.

Not only that, Nic Salts are perfectly suited for low-powered devices like pod kits. Plus, they produce discreet, less dense clouds, making stealth vaping a breeze.

Who are Nic Salts best for?

Those that smoke a pack or more of cigarettes a day are likely to benefit the most from Nic Salts. But generally those who need a stronger nicotine hit, or a quicker nicotine hit, will see benefits from Nic Salts. Also, those who find freebase nicotine too harsh for their throats are likely to benefit from Nic Salts for a smoother vape.

Similarly, those who wish to stealth vape and not produce thick vapour clouds, would prefer Nic Salts. They naturally lend themselves to low-powered devices that produce less vapour.

Are Nic Salts more harmful?

Nic Salts are simply a nicotine solution that has been given a more balanced pH to make it more gentle on the throat, and offer enhanced absorption. Some believe that the harms of smoking is caused by nicotine but this is actually the least harmful aspect of cigarettes. By itself, nicotine is relatively harmless in comparison to the thousands of harmful carcinogens present in cigarettes. So, no, Nic Salts are not more harmful than traditional nicotine E-Liquids!

What devices work best with Nic Salts?

What nicotine level should I vape?

Discovering the ideal nicotine strength for vaping varies among individuals. Some may require a more intense sensation, while others may realize they need less nicotine than they initially thought. The general guideline suggests that heavy smokers (who consume a pack or more daily) may benefit from 20mg/ml Nic Salts, the maximum strength available in the UAE.

If you're an average smoker (around half a pack per day), a medium 10-11mg/ml Nic Salt is likely to suit your needs. However, if you find that it doesn't fully satisfy your cravings, you may need to increase the strength to 20mg/ml.

For those who smoke casually (less than half a pack per day), we recommend a lower strength such as 5mg/ml Nic Salts. Adapting to the nicotine intake from vaping may take some time since it differs from smoking cigarettes. Nevertheless, by finding the perfect strength for you, you increase your chances of successfully quitting smoking.

What devices work best with Nic Salts?

Overall, Nic Salts are not more harmful than other E-Liquids, but as they do contain nicotine there is still some suggested harm thanks to its addictive nature. For this reason, vaping is not suggested for anyone who has never smoked before. Vaping and Nic Salts are predominantly a quit-smoking tool for smokers or ex-smokers looking to stay clear of cigarettes. Nicotine is an addictive substance and should still be treated with care.
