How to Sell Nic Salts : What you need to know

With a ban on disposable vapes looming, there is no better time to get clued up on Nic Salts than now.

What are Nic Salts

Nic Salts are a high flavoured nicotine concentrate that allows the user an elongated nicotine hit.

Although the origins of a successful nicotine hit without smoking a cigarette date all the way back to 1927, the first modern vape was curated in China circa 2003.

In the present day, vaping has seen advancements every year to stay up to date with the needs of the modern vape user. This means that new brands, flavours and devices are continually competing for a space on the shelf.

Initially vapes were a great way for cigarette users to kick the habit for something fresher and less offensive. Over time, puffing tasty flavoured air was losing satisfaction among ex-smokers and the need for a new nicotine hit was born.

After their initial introduction in 2018, nic salts have prevailed amongst reusable vape users for a longer lasting nicotine hit. With new nic salt developments curated to generate a nicotine hit to traditional tobacco in order to meet user needs, flavours are now double concentrated to match the hit of the entry level disposable vape device.
