How are regular freebase nicotine and salt nicotine different?

Even though nicotine salt is a newer discovery than freebase nicotine, it’s popularity has skyrocketed due to the way it makes vaping more customisable. While both forms originate from the same tobacco leaves, their extraction process is different. After the freebase nicotine (the nicotine used in regular e-liquids) is extracted, it’s added to a form of benzoic acid that changes its formation and pH levels. When the acid is added and has reacted, it becomes nicotine salt, which when added to e-liquid will provide less of a harsh throat hit and can be used with higher nicotine strengths. 

If you’ve ever vaped a disposable device, or even had a cigarette, you’ve inhaled nicotine salt. With an overall lesser throat and throat irritation, many people go to nicotine salts to get their cravings and enjoy their experience. 

Which type of liquid will give me the best hit?

If you’re looking for a higher nicotine strength, nicotine salts can go up to 20mg (2%) in the UK and are mostly used by people who are quitting smoking or have just quit. Having a nicotine strength that’s similar to smoking a cigarette can help ease your cravings with an instant fix.

Salt nic absorbs faster into your system, and leaves faster too, giving you a satisfying hit. As they vaporise at lower temperatures, nic salts can be used in lower power devices so are perfect for the sleek devices we recommend. The flavour of a nic salt e-liquid won’t be as muted, and you’ll get a burst of favour, whether it’s a classic tobacco or a sweet berry mix.
