WHAT DEVICE TO USE FOR SALT NICS
One thing to keep in mind is that salt nics operate in lower wattage devices. It is strongly recommended to avoid using high powered devices to vape salt nicotine. Using sub-ohms to vape salt nicotine at 50 mg nic levels will give you excessive amounts of nicotine and would be fairly unpleasant.
As we have stated above, the salt nics are designed to be used in lower wattage devices due to the higher amount of nicotine absorbed as well as not requiring to vaporize at higher temperatures.
Not only are the devices low profile and sleek, most of the low wattage devices are autofire meaning you only get vapor when you inhale it. This makes it a user-friendly device for any smokers who are new to vaping without the investment in figuring how all of the current devices work.
The low wattage, high resistance devices that are currently on the market come with two available options:
- Open System – you can refill manually by buying nicotine salt e-liquids
- Closed System – you can buy cartridges/pods that contain e-liquid which usually come in packs of 4 without creating a mess 🙂
Side note: You can also consider getting lower nicotine levels like 3 mg and 6 mg in nicotine salt form for your sub-ohm device. As far as it being more effective at delivering nicotine than freebase nicotine as PAX lab claims in their study is up to debate. What you may notice is a smoother throat hit than freebase nicotine e-juices.
IS NIC SALT(SALT NIC) WORSE FOR YOU?
Great question! One of the main ingredients in nic salts, nicotine, is highly addictive. And nic salts have a higher amount of nicotine than freebase vape. Making the possibility for increased nicotine addiction a possibility if proper precaution is not taken.
Another ingredient in nic salt, benzoic acid, is still under review to determine its toxicity. Studies have reported that once benzoic acid is inhaled has caused coughing. Some people are also allergic to this ingredient which has also caused concern.
