Nicotine Salts: The Essentials of Salt-Nic Vape Juice

What are vape juices?

Nicotine Salts are a new buzz that started popping up all over the vape world in the last few years.

Nicotine Salts otherwise known as Salt Nic e-juices, are a totally elevated level of nicotine consumption. Typically, Nicotine Salt based vape flavors tend to be smoother, stronger, and stealthier. 

Of course, the nicotine strength that you choose comes down to your personal preference. For example, if you’re switching over to vaping after years of smoking cigarettes, an e-liquid that has a high nicotine level may be exactly what you need to experience that relief you seek, but otherwise might have a harder time getting. 

So what’s the big idea then? Should you make the switch from traditional e-liquids?

Nicotine Salts versus Freebase Vape Juice

When you look at Nicotine Salts versus Freebase Nicotine Vape Juice, it’s easy to see why so many people get confused. They both deliver nicotine via vapor, so what’s the difference?

Learn all about Freebase Vape Juice

Freebase E-Liquids (like the delicious three above) are the go to when it comes to vape juice today.

Freebase Vape Juice is is really just a nicotine solution added to a mix of vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) which act as a “base” for vaping the nicotine. This is also used in other nicotine cessation products such as candies, gummies, patches, nicotine sprays, etc.

Freebase is The Grand Daddy of Vape Sauce

Freebase E-Liquid has been around a-lot longer than you think. In the past, getting the best e-juice meant something a little different. Before the rapid onset of box-mods and vape culture, cigarette company’s had to find a way to get their customers hooked. They found that freebasing their nicotine lead to higher delivery ratios and thus, lifetime customers.

In today’s happy world of vaping, the tastiest e-liquids are freebased in a proprietary blend of nicotine and flavor, combined with a VG/PG blend. This allows nicotine to be delivered efficiently, while still giving you great quality hits and tons of control over your vape clouds.

Due to how the base of nicotine salts react to vaporization, the clouds generated from salt-nic e-liquids tend to be less visible and not as strong smelling either. Salt-Nic is low profile and easy to use in public. If you’re constantly worried about making a cloud scene, salt-nic is for you.

Not sure if Nicotine Salts are Right for You?

Nicotine Salts Feels Real

If you’re used to the strong punch of nicotine that comes with smoking an analog cigarette, a salt-nic vape juice is probably right for you. These days, tons of e-liquids carry nicotine salts. That’s because they can deliver that buzz that you’re looking for when you take a hit from your mod. If you prefer the feeling a traditional cigarette, you should definitely give nicotine salts a try. 

Nicotine Salts Vaping

Many smokers who switch to vaping complain that they can’t feel it. Granted anyone who vapes knows that this can be attributed to technique, experience, and a host of other problems.

For others, as they become long-term vapers they want something stronger, tastier, and easier to use. A tolerance sucks as is and it only helps to have more of the best (which our salt-nic vape flavor lineups happen to include.)

These days, nicotine salts make for insanely potent e-juices that deliver long-lasting craving relief and clear headed stimulation for hours.

There’s really nothing like it.  

Salt-Nic Throat Hits are Next Level

Nicotine Salts Throat Hits are Next Level

There are many vapers out there who prefer a powerful throat hit (How much you can physically feel the vapor as you inhale) above all other aspects of vaping. A High nicotine level guarantees a strong hit to the throat that can be incredibly nice. 

For instance, nicotine salt e-juices are designed to be compatible with basically any pod mod vaping devices, which makes them accessible to vape pen users and box mod users alike. Of course, devices that have specific resistance and voltage level adjustments will let you enhance the throat hit to your preference. Having more control over your hit means you can dial in your clouds to your exact needs.

Reacting to Nicotine Salts

Some vapers prefer nicotine salts because they allow them to save money on good e-liquid while giving them the ability to vape less frequently overall. If you’re vaping to satisfy your nicotine cravings, you’ll find that just a few puffs will do the trick. In the long run, you’ll go through e-juice way less frequently.

Additionally, you’ll be able to enjoy longer stretches of time between vaping sessions. That being said, if you prefer a less intense head rush and shorter duration of effects, our other vape-juice flavors might be a better fit for you!
