Vaping Explained

Bit confused? Or are looking to learn more about some of the technical terms around vaping? You are in the right place! We have put together some easy to digest information below to hopefully help you get up to speed and make more educated choices when shopping forVape products.

“Mouth-to-lung” is how you smoke a cigarette – by drawing the smoke into your mouth, then inhaling it into your lungs. This is how most smokers inhale when they start vaping, which makes perfect sense.

With ‘Direct to Lung’ vaping, you bypass the mouth altogether and inhale the vapor directly into your lungs. Most people who’ve vaped a long time prefer this method, especially those who enjoy big clouds and lots of vapor production.

Nicotine salt (or nic salt) is a ph adjusted form of nicotine derived from the leaf tobacco. In a very simple, but chemically complex way nic salt e-liquids are the most efficient way to deliver nicotine to a vapers body. A large number of vapers say they find that nic salts deliver a more satisfying experience, saying e-liquid with nicotine salt is easier to inhale, thanks to its bio-compatibility. Users have cited throat hits of reduced harshness and are able to use more powerful liquids, taking in more nicotine on each vape.

Many users of lower-powered devices have started to embrace nic salts. A huge amount of advancement in vaping is geared towards the activity itself, focusing on one of two things- better gear or better juice. Until nic salts, nothing was really focusing on the nicotine itself. Nic salts provide better, faster nicotine fixes that deliver in 6-7 seconds. Freebase nicotine takes longer for the satisfaction feeling, as it’s absorbed by the body in a build-up way. Nic salts allow the nicotine to enter the bloodstream at a similar speed to cigarettes- exactly what quitters are looking to replicate.

When you switch to nic salts your nicotine is basically on-demand. While nic salts themselves are a bit pricier, your e-cigarette will deliver nicotine more efficiently.

Nevertheless, for customers who want to keep the feeling of a stronger ‘hit’ while reducing their intake of nicotine, freebase eliquids are a good option (these are marked as ‘freebase’ on the website). This also applies to light smokers who want to convert to vaping, the freebase eliquids simulate the feeling of smoking a cigarette well.
