Nicotine salts, often known as nic salts, have gained popularity with vapers due to their unique benefits.
They’re made of a natural nicotine base combined with an acid. The addition of the acid alters the pH level of the nicotine, resulting in a smoother vaping experience.
One of the reasons they’re so popular is their absorption rate. Nicotine salts are known for their faster absorption into the bloodstream, especially compared to traditional freebase nicotine. This quicker absorption mimics the nicotine rush experienced from smoking a traditional cigarette. They’re therefore one of the best choices for anyone looking to quit smoking and make the transition to vaping.
Another advantage is nic salts provide a milder hit.
Nicotine salts provide a smoother throat hit even at higher nicotine concentrations, making them more tolerable for people who find regular e-liquids harsh.
If you want higher rates of nicotine, nic salts are ideal. They allow for higher concentrations of nicotine in e-liquids without the harshness typically associated with high levels of freebase nicotine. This makes them suitable for pod systems and smaller vaping devices that require higher nicotine content to satisfy cravings.
Reduce levels of vapour production.
Many people don’t like being around clouds of vaping smoke. Nic salts typically produce less vapour compared to traditional e-liquids. This characteristic makes them more discreet and suitable for vaping in environments where large vapour clouds might not be acceptable.
They also have a longer shelf life than free-base nicotine. Nicotine salts tend to have a longer shelf life compared to freebase nicotine due to their chemical composition, which makes them more stable.
Some argue that nic salts can slightly mute flavours compared to traditional e-liquids. However, this can vary based on personal preference and the specific formulation of e-liquid.
Whether someone prefers nicotine salts or freebase nicotine is often a matter of personal choice. Some vapers appreciate the smoothness and quick nicotine delivery of salts; others prefer the stronger throat hit and higher vapour production of freebase nicotine.
Remember, while nic salts may have benefits, especially for smokers transitioning to vaping, it’s essential to understand nicotine strengths, consumption patterns, and any potential health implications associated with nicotine use.
If you prefer e-liquids we also have an extensive range to choose from.
E-liquids, like nic salts, come in varying strengths but, unlike nicotine salts, they can also come in a panoply of flavours. They typically contain propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) as base liquids.
Vape GB has e-liquids that come in a vast array of flavours, ranging from traditional tobacco and menthol to fruity, dessert, candy, beverage, and even exotic flavours like cereal or pastry.
E-liquids can have different nicotine concentrations, allowing users to control their intake. Nicotine levels are usually measured in milligrams per millilitre (mg/ml) and can vary from 0mg/ml to 50mg/ml or higher in some cases.
Have you ever heard of what’s known as ‘steeping’?
Vaping is an extremely fun pastime, where you’re always discovering something new. On our website you’ll find a range of tips to help you get the most out of our products.
Similar to how tea or wine matures with time, some vapers practise “steeping” e-liquids by letting them sit for a while. This can enhance the flavour by allowing the ingredients to blend better.
Do you love producing thicker clouds of vaping smoke?
The ratio of PG to VG affects the vapour production and throat hit. Higher VG concentrations generally produce thicker clouds, while higher PG concentrations tend to provide a stronger throat hit.
Propylene glycol (PG) tends to carry flavour better and provides a stronger throat hit, while vegetable glycerin (VG) creates thicker vapour and is smoother on the throat. Most e-liquids use a combination of both.
While e-liquids are generally considered safer than traditional tobacco cigarettes, there are safety concerns. It’s therefore vital to choose a reputable vendor like VapeGB.
The regulations surrounding e-liquids vary by region. Some places have strict rules about labelling, packaging and nicotine concentration, while others have more relaxed regulations. In the UK, e-cigarettes and e-liquids must meet specific quality and safety standards set out in the regulations. This includes restrictions on nicotine strength, maximum tank size, and maximum e-liquid capacity.
Why not experiment with our different e-liquids in 2024?
Some enthusiasts create their own e-liquids, experimenting with different flavours, nicotine strengths, and VG/PG ratios. Nonetheless, this requires careful handling of ingredients and knowledge of proper mixing techniques.
Since our e-liquids are so affordable, it’s easy to mix and match to find new and exciting flavours.
The e-liquid industry has seen rapid evolution in terms of flavours and technology. VapeGB will always bring the latest and best products on the market today.
