Opting for the nicotine type that suits your unique taste and vaping style can help you get the most out of your vaping experience. Not sure which one is right for you? Let’s dig into Freebase Nicotine and Nicotine Salts to see what they’re all about.
WHAT IS FREEBASE NICOTINE?
Freebase nicotine is a form of nicotine commonly used in the e Liquid or vape juice for e-cigarettes or vape pens. When nicotine is extracted from tobacco leaves, it converts to a “Freebase” state which means it’s nicotine in its base form. We use this pharmaceutical grade nicotine for our e Liquid in freebase form. Nicotine as a Freebase is an alkaline, which can provide a harsher throat hit when vapourised, compared to Nicotine Salts. The new freebase 1.8% (20mg/ml) range, is a good option for those seeking a strong, sensorial vaping experience.
WHAT IS NICOTINE SALT?
Nicotine salts are what allow vapers to closely mimic the practice of smoking. Nicotine occurs in nature in a number of plant varieties but it’s strongest in the leaves of the tobacco plant where it exists in a salt form. At Vuse, these nicotine salts are recreated in e Liquid form by adding an acid, typically Lactic acid or Benzoic acid, to Freebase nicotine. The acid reacts with the nicotine to form a nicotine salt. The result is that nicotine in “salt” form is more stable and generally delivers a smoother throat sensation than the nicotine in freebase e Liquids.
