The majority of vapers in the world vape as a alternative to smoking, so they need their nicotine. Sure you can get nic shots but if you just want the classic smoking experience, that's where nic salts come in! Today I will explain everything you need to know about nic shots!
Nic Salts are made from the natural state of nicotine, found in tobacco leaves. If these were added to normal e-liquid, it would need to be vaped at extremely high temperatures just for it to be effective, and it wouldn't be as easily absorbed as normal freebase nicotine. That is why we have nic salts as separate e-liquids.
Nic salts give you an experience similar to smoking with its nicotine. They give you more nicotine with every puff, making vaping more satisfying as you do not have to vape more to get the nicotine you want. The nic salt is absorbed into the bloodstream faster than freebase, giving you the nicotine quicker.
One other good thing about nic salts compared to freebase nicotine is the throat hit. While freebase nicotine gives you a harder throat hit when the nicotine level goes up, nic shots give you a smooth feeling in your throat. This is so your throat isn't on fire when you vape 50mg.
So you may be interested in using nic salts, but are they right for you? What you need to think about is how much you used to smoke. If you were a heavy smoker who is looking for an experience similar to a cigarette, with a smooth vape, this is most likely for you. You may also want to think about how much you want to spend, how strong you want your nicotine and if you want to produce a lot of vapour. If you are not sure about this, speak to a knowledgeable vape shop owner who can help you.
It is natural for you to wonder if nic salts are safe. The truth is nic salts are as safe as freebase nicotine. Nevertheless, nic salts are possibly more addictive as it can lead to higher nicotine content in your bloodstream in a shorter time. Also, while it is not toxic, benzoic acid (used to make the nic salt smoother) could possibly cause problems.
