Information about our Nicotine
What makes Migo special?
Besides being the first e-cigarette on the Dutch market to use pre-filled Pods and an e-cigarette activated by inhalation, Migo E-liquid is also special.
Migo uses Nicotine Salts (also known as "Nic Salt"). Nic Salt is the natural form of nicotine as found in tobacco leaves. It not only consists of nicotine but are also bonded with another organic element (Benzoic acid) to form a stable molecule. Compared to freebase nicotine (which is currently the standard in tobacco shops in the Netherlands) which is not bound to other elements.
What is Benzoic acid?
Benzoic acid (Benzoic Acid) sounds exciting but it can also be found in many fruits such as berries, but also, for example, in yoghurt and honey. Benzoic acid is an organic element and is often used as an additive in food and designated E210.
Why nicotine salts?
The addition of benzoic acid lowers the PH value, making the e-liquid feel softer on the throat compared to freebase nicotine -which is often sharp on the throat and can be perceived as unpleasant. By adding benzoic acid, it is possible to vape higher nicotine levels (20MG) that do not feel sharp and unpleasant.
But there is more; Nic Salts are absorbed into your blood faster. The nicotine absorption of Nic Salts E-Liquid is similar to smoking a cigarette. This makes the chances of successfully switching to an alternative to the traditional cigarette easier than with freebase nicotine. The nicotine is absorbed almost instantly, satiating the urge for a "nicotine hit" faster.
