If you've been into vaping for a while, you've probably heard of nicotine salts by now. However, you might not know all of the details about salts if you haven't researched them. They're fairly new on the market. 

In a lot of vaping circles, salts are looked at as a fad that's bound to burn out. That's not true. They've been growing in popularity since they were created and they bring a lot to the table for vaping enthusiasts that want a little bit more from their e-juice. They can also be a handy tool for any of you who want to use vaping as a means to quit smoking tobacco products. 

What Are Nicotine Salts? 

Nicotine isn't naturally found in the form that's used in cigarettes and other tobacco products. It's processed with ammonia and other chemicals to create a more potent substance that uses nicotine as a base. 

In nature, nicotine is only found in the form of salts within a tobacco plant. They're not crystalline like table salt, but they're still a salt-like structure and they're the most natural form of nicotine. 

The entire reason that nicotine is as it is today is because tobacco companies wanted to provide a more potent product to their customers. Nicotine was used in its natural salt form all the way until the 1960's. It's not a new discovery.

However, tobacco companies needed to experiment with the substance to make it more potent in cigarettes when it would be burned. So, they added ammonia and other chemicals to help it become more prominent in their tobacco products. 

Why Should You Use Them In Vape Devices? 

If tobacco companies developed modern nicotine variants to make them stronger, you might be wondering why you should use salts in your vape device. Surprisingly, nicotine salt e-juice is actually more potent than normal variants. The salts in nicotine salt e-juice are a lot more concentrated than they would be in a cigarette. 

There are a number of advantages to this increased potency. If you're a former smoker who is using vaping as a way to stay off of cigarettes, nicotine salt e liquid can pack up to fifty milligrams of nicotine in a single tank. That's far more than you can safely get in a bottle of regular e-juice.

When you vape a highly concentrated e-juice made from salts, you can get the nicotine fix that you need to function without having to take several hits from your vaping device. That allows you to save money on e-juice and you don't have to use your vape device as often. 

There is also a much more tolerable throat hit with salt-based e-juice. When you use regular e-juice with a high nicotine content, it typically hurts your throat. Salts produce a much less intense throat hit. The ease of use that salt-based juice provides can help you enjoy your vaping experience a lot more. 

If you're tired of using normal e-juice and not having the high nicotine content that you need, it's worth giving nicotine salt e liquid a try. There are several benefits for people who want a high nicotine content juice.
