Since the release of the very first nic salt e-liquid, vapers have been quick to adopt and take advantage of this new form of nicotine. Originally developed by JUUL labs, nic salt e-liquids generally present vapers with a more satisfying nic hit which is much smoother than conventional freebase nicotine. This smoother hit allows manufacturers to increase the concentration of nicotine in an e-liquid, meaning vapers can consume less juice to get the same effect. This, in turn, makes salt nic e-liquids considerably more cost-efficient and offer a better bang for your buck.
As with all e-liquids, the flavours featured on this list come from a subjective point-of-view and what we may like, may not be right for you. That being said, the nic salt e-liquids featured on this list should help you make an informed purchase and may even lead to your next all day vape.
What is nicotine salt?
Before we can look at specific nic salt e-liquids, it’s important to understand what nic salt really is. At its core, nicotine salt is a chemical formulation of nicotine that decreases its harshness, giving vapers the ability to inhale more nicotine without consuming more vapour. Nic salt also provides a more even dispersion rate across the body, meaning you don’t need to chain vape to achieve a certain amount of nicotine in your body.
The first nic salt e-juice was developed by JUUL Labs, who were also the first to make the nicotine variation available to the retail market. While JUUL did introduce the substance to the market, it was really the proliferation of pod systems on the market that really pushed nic salts into the forefront of vaping. The restrive pull of pod systems, along with their relatively low power, helped ensure vapers weren’t inhaling too much nicotine and made the most of nic salt e-liquids.
