What Are Nic Salts?

Most natural nicotine – including the nicotine used for e-liquid – is extracted from tobacco leaves using a solvent such as ammonia, which increases the pH of the nicotine to improve the yield of the extraction. Nicotine is a salt in its natural state, but the use of an alkaline solvent turns it into a free base. Nic salt vape juice is a fairly recent creation. Before nicotine salts hit the market, all e-liquid was freebase vape juice.

In the mid-2010s, nicotine salt e-liquid was developed to provide certain benefits that freebase e-liquid lacks. We’ll discuss the benefits of nic salts in greater detail shortly. Nic salt e-liquid is the same as freebase e-liquid except that it contains a weak acid. The acid adjusts the pH of the nicotine, converting it back into a salt.

In addition to naturally extracted nicotine, it’s also possible to make nic salt e-liquid using synthetic nicotine. Also known as tobacco-free nicotine, synthetic nicotine has become a popular alternative to tobacco-derived nicotine in recent years.

What Is the Benefit of Nic Salt Vape Juice?

Nic salt and freebase vape juice are sometimes available in the same nicotine strengths, but it’s common for the strength of nicotine salt vape juice to be a bit higher than that of freebase vape juice.  If your preferred nicotine strength is about 10 mg/ml or higher, the benefit of nicotine salt e-liquid is that it’s less alkaline than freebase vape juice. The lower alkalinity makes the e-liquid noticeably smoother and easier to inhale.

The smoothness of nic salt vape juice is less evident at lower nicotine strengths such as 3-6 mg/ml, which is why most e-liquids with those strengths use freebase nicotine.

What Type of Device Should I Use with Nic Salt Vape Juice?

Nicotine salt e-liquid is designed for small vaping devices such as pod systems and certain vape pens. The right vaping device for an e-liquid with a nicotine strength of 10 mg/ml or higher is one that’s designed for the mouth-to-lung inhaling style. The device should produce small vapour clouds, and it should have a tight draw. Disposable vapes nearly always use nicotine salts.

If the device that you’re using is too powerful for use with nicotine salt e-liquid, you’ll know it right away because the experience won’t be enjoyable at all.

What Nicotine Strength Should I Buy?

Nic salt vape juice usually comes in two different strengths. We’ll give you some pointers that can help you select the right one.

  • Higher strength (usually around 20 mg/ml): You should consider buying this strength if you’re making the switch to vaping after being a long-term daily smoker and are using a pod system or vape pen that’s comparable in size to a cigarette or small cigar.
  • Lower strength (usually around 10 mg/ml): You should consider buying this strength if you smoke less than half a pack of cigarettes per day or are already a full-time vaper and are trying nic salt for the first time. You should also buy this strength if you’re currently using the 20 mg/ml strength and want to reduce your nicotine intake.
