nicotine polacrilex vs nicotine salt

Nicotine polacrilex and nicotine salt are two different forms of nicotine used in nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) and vaping products, each with unique properties and applications.

Nicotine polacrilex, commonly known as nicotine gum, is a resin complex of nicotine bound to polacrilex, a cation-exchange resin. It is used in NRTs to help individuals quit smoking by delivering nicotine through the oral mucosa, reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Nicotine salt, on the other hand, is a form of nicotine that is combined with an acid, such as benzoic acid, to create a smoother vaping experience. Nicotine salt e-liquids typically have higher nicotine concentrations and provide a quicker nicotine delivery compared to traditional freebase nicotine e-liquids.
