What does salt nicotine do?

Whether you smoke or not, you've probably heard of nicotine; If you've ever used an e-cigarette, you've probably heard of nicotine salts. So what's the difference between nicotine and nicotine salts and the pros and cons? Follow us as we read about the pros and cons of nicotine and nicotine salts.

Nicotine, organic matter, chemical formula C10H14N2, is an alkaloid in the Solanaceae plant (Solanium). It is also an important component of tobacco and a representative of N choline receptor agonists. It has effects on N1 and N2 receptors and the central nervous system, but has no clinical value.

Nicotine can be addictive or dependent. Repeated use of nicotine also increases heart rate and blood pressure and decreases appetite. In large doses, nicotine can cause vomiting and nausea, and in severe cases, death. Tobacco often contains nicotine.

Nicotine salts are made up of nicotine and weak acids, which are found naturally in tobacco leaves. Benzoic acid is the most commonly used acid to make nicotine salts; Nicotine pyruvate is another form of nicotine salt (a chemical reaction with pyruvate is used to atomize nicotine).

A solution of the free base nicotine containing a weak acid lowers the pH and can deliver higher levels of nicotine without irritating the throat. Nicotine salts are thought to increase the level and rate of delivery of nicotine to users.

Through vaping, nicotine enters the body at a rate similar to that absorbed from conventional cigarettes. Traditional cigarettes provide high levels of nicotine, but the smoke tastes bad. However, vaping products can deliver high levels of nicotine without the negative smoking experience.

Nicotine salts are less irritating and bitter, so e-liquids containing nicotine salts are acceptable even with high concentrations of nicotine. The aerosol form of nicotine salts does not irritate the chest and lungs as regular cigarettes do. And protonated nicotine salts are more suitable for tobacco novices to inhale.

The greatest significance of nicotine salt is to solve the problem of the efficiency of nicotine delivery in the blood. Regular "free base nicotine" vapes are not ideal for trying to improve the flow of nicotine into the blood from vape devices, so it is difficult for vape users to get the same satisfaction as smoking, and the high nicotine content only overirritates the throat and reaches only a small fraction of the blood in the real need for nicotine in the effective time.

High levels of nicotine overirritate the throat and reduce the user experience. The nicotine salts, however, are more penetrating than the "free base nicotine," increasing the amount of nicotine that can penetrate into the bloodstream in the same amount of time, thus providing a solution that approximates the way real nicotine is absorbed into the bloodstream without over-irritating the throat.
