Salt Nic Information

Feb 25th 2019


So what is this nicotine salt that I keep hearing about?

Nicotine Salt is generally considered to be a more stable form of nicotine (versus the traditional type of freebase nicotine that is found in most e-liquids), are a more "smooth" formulation than traditional freebase nicotine. E-liquids made from this formulation also deliver a "hit" which more closely resembles the feeling of inhaling smoke from a traditional cigarette. This can be helpful when first switching from cigarettes to e-cigarettes.

Nicotine Salts have a high nicotine content which makes them incredibly effective in delivering the amount of nicotine that people crave when they desire to switch from traditional cigarettes. Therefore, e-liquids made from nicotine salt work a little differently than e-liquids made from traditional freebase nicotine.

How does it work?

Nicotine Salt e-liquids have a unique ingredient which is known as Benzoic Acid. This component is what gives nicotine salt the "smooth" sensation and allows it to be vaped in a higher concentration so that it can be absorbed easier.

What are the pros and cons?

  • It is smoother and absorbed faster in the system but is more expensive. Also, because of their higher nicotine concentration, nicotine salts can only be used in low power devices and cannot be used in sub-ohm devices.

What strength should you buy?

Our nicotine salt e-liquids come in 12-48 mg strengths. If you’re new to nicotine salts, we suggest starting with the lowest concentration to make sure that you are not sensitive to nicotine or the strength, etc.

Is is safe?

Aside from the addictive properties of nicotine, nicotine salt is not considered any more harmful than traditional freebase nicotine. However, it is not to be used in high-powered devices as this is a high concentration of nicotine and could result in a significant "burning" sensation in the throat. It is designed to be used in low powered devices or cartridges such as JUUL pods which have, in the past, delivered a "weak" hit.


**Warning: Not For Sub-Ohm Use**

NOTE: Salt nics are for low power devices only and we recommend using them with refillable pod or cartridges. Our  nic salt flavors and liquids are specially formulated for cartridge systems and other similar low-powered devices and systems. DO NOT USE with SUB-OHM tanks, atomizers, or other high-powered systems or devices.
