Coming Soon: Nicotine Salts October 17 2017
You've asked for them, and they're coming! We will soon be offering a salt-based nicotine option for all of our flavors. Our goal is to have this addition rolled out on the website by mid-November.
Here's the plan -
We will make all of our signature flavors available in 15mg / 25mg / 35mg salt-based nicotine options.
PG/VG will be available at 50VG/50PG & 60VG/40PG
Our salt-based nicotine line will come in 15ml ($10) or 30ml ($16) bottles.
All extra flavor & additive options will be available for our nicotine salt line.
What is "nicotine salts"? (We know a lot of you are wondering)
So first we need to understand freebase nicotine. Freebase nicotine is created when tobacco and vaping companies take nicotine and remove protons from it. In order to do this, they take a base like ammonia and add it to nicotine to strip away all of the protons that exist in it. The ammonia that is used also separates the nicotine from the salts that are present to create a freebase form of nicotine that is then inserted into products.
Nicotine salts operate much differently than this. These salts actually form naturally in leaf tobacco and are considered to be a more stable form of nicotine than the freebase form. Although it has taken quite a bit of research to perfect the methodology behind taking nicotine salts and using them in vaping products.
TL;DR: Nicotine salts is nicotine in it's most natural state.
So what's the difference?
Nicotine salts are able to provide vapers with better nicotine blood absorption, much closer to that of a traditional cigarette. Meaning that you will feel nicotine's effects much quicker with a salt-based nicotine e-liquid than you will with a freebase nicotine e-liquid. Since salt-based nicotine is in it's natural state, the body has an easier time absorbing the nicotine and is able to sustain a longer nicotine fix.
We don't recommend trying to use nicotine salts with a typical high wattage sub-ohm device. Instead we recommend a variety of different devices that are more tailored for nicotine salts. If you try and vape a high-concentration nicotine salt e-liquid in a sub-ohm tank at high wattage it is going to be very uncomfortable. The nicotine salt experience is completely different, but we find it very enjoyable when used with the right setup.
Here are some devices we recommend -
We're really excited to release our salt-based e-liquids. This new line will allow us to provide an experience closer to that of a cigarette, putting us in place to convert more cigarette smokers than we were able to in the past. We really feel that salt-based nicotine and salt-based nicotine devices is where our industry is heading. The smaller device form factor and reduced need for frequent inhalation is allowing vaping to become a much more hassle-free process.
