Freebase Nicotine vs Nicotine salts

If you’re switching from smoking to vaping, you should use a nicotine-containing e-liquid. The nicotine used in vape juice is known as freebase nicotine. This nicotine has been chemically altered to increase its potency. However, at higher concentrations, it can have a harsh mouthfeel.

Later on, nicotine salts appeared on the scene, finally providing vapers with an alternative to freebase nicotine. Nicotine salts are created by isolating nicotine compounds found in tobacco plants. After that, the compounds are suspended in benzoic acid. Nicotine salts quickly gained popularity due to their high nicotine potency and the smooth throat hit provided by the benzoic acid.

Using the right device for nicotine salts

Nicotine salts could previously only be used with low-wattage devices such as adjustable pod mods. Using nicotine salts in a high-wattage device can result in excessive nicotine release, so it was not recommended. High temperatures were also unnecessary because benzoic acid allows nicotine salts to vaporise at lower temperatures. This has recently changed, with the introduction of nicotine salt formulas that work with a high-watt sub-ohm setup.

Tobacco-flavoured nicotine e-juice

When switching from cigarettes to vapes, you want the transition to be as seamless as possible. Leave the flavours alone and stick to tobacco-flavored vape juice! Combining tobacco flavour with a strong hit of nicotine salt creates a sensation very similar to smoking a cigarette. When you’re just getting started, you can use e-liquids like the Premium Red Salted E-liquid with a simple pod or pen device, so you don’t have to invest in anything too fancy or foreign. With a sweet, caramel-based flavour, this nicotine salt e-juice mimics the taste of real cigarettes.
