What is Saltnic?

SaltNic is a highly concentrated nicotine e-liquid with exceptional flavors in a wide range of flavor profiles. SaltNic will provide better nicotine blood absorption that will result in a rapid delivery of instant satisfaction with a pleasing throat hit. It will also help you ride out your nicotine cravings more effectively than regular vape e-juice, which means you will be able to vape less and stay satisfied. But, to understand what SaltNic is, one must have a basic understanding of nicotine and how it functions in e-liquid. This will help you decide, based on your preferences, what type of vaping experience you wish to achieve to permanently detach yourself from smoking.

The tobacco plant is a part of the Solanaceae family of plants and has the highest concentration of nicotine compared to the rest of its relatives. Nicotine found in tobacco leaves has the chemical composition of salt. Salt is made up of a chemical reaction that has a positive charge and a negative charge. The positive charge is considered to be an acid, while the negative charge is the base. Nicotine that has been de-protonated has had its positive charge removed, typically with ammonia, which allows it to return to its free state. Nicotine in its free state is more bioavailable and can more easily travel through membranes in our bodies, which increases its potency.

Freebase nicotine is most commonly found in regular e-juices and is the preferred substance for maximum biological absorption. However, due to its unstable state, it has been found to have several limitations. When there are increased levels of nicotine in freebase e-liquid, the alkalinity increases due to its high pH level. Increases in alkalinity causes the e-liquid to become extremely harsh, the flavor is negatively affected and it becomes quite an unpleasant vaping experience. It is due to this very reason that many have turned to nicotine salts because the nicotine content can be considerably higher in concentration while not negatively affecting smoothness or flavor.

Nicotine salt is the original state in which nicotine is found in tobacco leaves. It contains a few other organic compounds that are also found in tobacco leaves, which allows nicotine salt to be a more stable molecule than freebase nicotine. However, nicotine salt has limitations on its own as well. It requires higher temperatures to vaporize and the ions do not travel easily to nicotine receptors in the body. To make salt nicotine more effectively bioavailable and to simulate sensations of smoking, chemists found that by adding benzoic acid to the nicotine salt it could vaporize at lower temperatures, as well as facilitate smoother throat hits do to lower pH levels. And, it has been found to have a distinct chemical reaction that allows for more bioavailability, which allows nicotine to remain in the bloodstream for longer periods of time.

What really matters is what you want out of your vaping experience. SaltNic e-liquid allows for a great tasting vaping experience with higher levels of nicotine that is bearable without the discomfort of bad tasting, harsh hits. It is more effective than freebase e-liquid and will save you money in the long term. For more information on SaltNic e-liquid or devices, go to our blog or contact us at info@saltnic.com.
