As a new industry that has emerged in the past decade, the electronic cigarette industry has become familiar and widely used by many consumers. As electronic cigarette products are widely accepted, more and more new concepts are also well known, but many new terms still confuse consumers, such as: What is the difference between nicotine salt and e-liquid? Today, we will take a look at it.
What is nicotine salt?
Nicotine salt, first used by Pax Labs, is made by adding certain acids to make nicotine more stable. It is mainly used in small cigarette products and is one of the raw materials for making e-liquid.
Nicotine salt is prepared by mixing various organic acids such as citric acid and tartaric acid to neutralize the pH value, forming highly stable binding molecules, with a smooth taste and extremely fast transmission rate. E-liquid made with nicotine salt can allow the body to quickly satisfy nicotine cravings after atomization. The highly stable molecules can prolong the stay time of nicotine in the blood, delay the time and frequency of the body's demand for nicotine, and the salt formed by organic acid and nicotine is also more easily metabolized and eliminated from the body.
What is e-liquid?
E-liquid, also known as vape juice, is the vapor produced by electronic cigarettes. It mainly consists of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), flavorings, and tobacco extracts (including nicotine). The vapor is produced by heating the e-liquid through an atomizer, and choosing high-quality e-liquids is important for a good vaping experience.
What is the difference between nicotine salt and e-liquid?
Compared to regular e-liquid, nicotine salt e-liquid allows for more convenient and efficient nicotine delivery. A few puffs of nicotine salt e-liquid can satisfy the body's nicotine needs. The significance of nicotine salts lies in their ability to improve nicotine delivery efficiency. Regular freebase nicotine e-liquid does not provide ideal blood nicotine levels for electronic cigarettes, making it difficult for users to achieve the same satisfaction as traditional cigarettes. High levels of nicotine can also lead to throat irritation, which reduces the overall vaping experience. Nicotine salt has stronger penetration ability than freebase nicotine, which increases the amount of nicotine absorbed into the bloodstream over a shorter period of time. Therefore, it provides a solution that can closely mimic the absorption of nicotine from traditional cigarettes without excessive throat irritation.
