What are Nicotine Salts?
In simple terms nicotine salts means you can ingest nicotine at a higher strength compared to the standard “liquid “form found in most vaping products.
This is one of the most relevant breakthrough in reduced harm products to ever come on to the market.
Why is this relevant?
When you smoke a traditional cigarette, the nicotine is absorbed quickly and at a high level.
The level of nicotine required to stop a craving for a traditional smoker in the past has not been satisfied by vaping as it could not deliver the nicotine in a high enough dose fast enough to satisfy the craving.
Nicotine salt is the most original form of nicotine that is found naturally on the tobacco plant. By adding Benzoic acid this helps the nicotine evaporate at a lower temperature and lowers the Ph levels which delivers a smoother throat hit and also creates a chemical reaction that makes the nicotine more absorbable.
The advantage of nicotine salts are that they are less irritating than nicotine base, this means that you can inhale the vapour with more ease. Nicotine salts are a great product for those smokers who are unable to inhale vapour without coughing.
In summary we would recommend nicotine salts if:
- You want to quit smoking altogether or transition into a reduced risk product.
- You have attempted vaping in the past and have not found it satisfactory.
The other major point to note is that we only sell the closed pod system.
Often as part of the transition people are confused with the offering and having to mess about with liquids and measuring doses etc.The pod system does away with all this.
Simply insert a pod turn the system on and smoke as you would a traditional cigarette. When the pod is finished discard it and then replace with a new pod. No liquids to squeeze or spill. The pod also has its own coil encased within it so there is no need to ever have to mess about changing coils every 2 weeks. The enclosed pod holds both the nic-salts and the coil. Easy.
Please note that whilst these products are considered “`reduced harm” and “safer” no product is considered safer than not smoking. This product is aimed firmly at people that are existing traditional cigarette smokers and are looking to cut down or quit and if you are not already a smoker or under the age of 18 then you should not start using any of the products marketed on this website.
Are Nicotine salts safe?
Nobody can claim any product is totally safe. What we are trying to do on this site is giving you the information to make an informed decision.
For years governments fought against vaping and now even the NHS and Public health England accept and publicly state that vaping is better for you that traditional smoking. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that points to the fact that these products are much safer for you than traditional smoking. The generally accepted term is 95% better for you than traditional cigarettes.
Benzioc acid (used to stabilize nicotine salts)for example in huge doses can be dangerous, just like any product but as an example a recent study concluded that there is more Benzene exposure from just breathing air than there would be from vaping 100ml of liquid per day( which would be equivalent to 50 x 2ml pods a day) most people using the pod system would only use 1 pod a day.
All our products are aimed at existing smokers over the age of 18. None of our products should be used as a gateway to smoking, quite the reverse our products are aimed at those people that want to quit smoking traditional cigarettes or perhaps continue to smoke but in a way that is a reduced risk.
