Effects of Vaping Nic Salts

In a few years of their inception, nic salts have become the star of vaping world. Although they increase the overall vaping appeal and improve the sensory experience of vaping, they may not be a nice option for every vape enthusiast. In this article, we will look into the effects of vaping nic salts and the reasons why you may want to try them only briefly.  

Effects of Exposure to E-cigarettes with Nic Salts

E-cigarettes with nic salts are smoother on throat and easy to inhale, thereby making them even more appealing and addictive. The health implications of vaping nic salts usually vary by the age group and smoking status. For old adults who are unable to quit smoking, nic salts are advantageous, however, for young adults they can be more addictive.

Although there is little conclusive evidence, but a few studies on a smaller group of participants have shown that prolonged usage of nic salts can have adverse effects. Unlike freebase nicotine, which does not diffuse the lungs, nic salt can alter the lung epithelium inflammatory responses, which can result in a high risk of respiratory illness over a long term.

Why Nic Salts are Not for Everyone?

Here are a few reasons why nic salts may not be ideal for you:

    • Relatively New

      Nic salts have been in existence for a long time but e-liquids with nic salts are getting mainstream since the past few years. As a result, there is not much variety when it comes to products and new flavours as compared to freebase nicotine e-liquids or shortfills.

    • Not for Cloud Chasers

      Nic salts are not for vapers looking to blow huge clouds. Vegetable Glycerine (VG) is an important ingredient in e-liquids that is responsible for thick plumes, besides some obvious vape tricks. Since most nic salts are either low VG or 50VG, they are not a good choice for cloud chasers.

    • Device Limitations

      Experienced vapers are often habituated to complex sub-ohm devices. However, nic salts are not mean to work with sub-ohm devices as it will lead to much quicker absorption of nicotine in higher doses. Instead, they work best with devices with resistance above one ohm.

    • Potentially More Addictive

      Nic salts are smooth on the throat and are absorbed more quickly in the bloodstream. As a result, they can deliver more nicotine compared to freebase nicotine e-liquids. High doses of nicotine can prove to be more addictive than other e-liquids and therefore they must be vaped cautiously.

Despite being vaper friendly there are a few things that you must know about nic salts before vaping them. If you are beginning your vape journey, it is advisable to consult a vaping expert. There may be a possibility of you overdoing it in the first time, which may result in a headache, nausea, and other unpleasant symptoms.
