Nicotine Salt vs Freebase Nicotine Juice. Who won? You Decide.

Nicotine Salt vs Freebase Nicotine Juice. Who won? You Decide.

I remember when I got my first low wattage closed system device, Icare mini. It is a cute tiny portable device, however I can't feel the throat hit at all. My friend recommended me the nicotine salt, that is how it solved my problem.

For those of you are not familiar with the nicotine salt, let me briefly introduce it to you, and hopefully when you get your low wattage device, you will know what kind of juice you will be needed.


First question, what is the difference between the nicotine salt and freebase nicotine?

Nicotine salt is the natural form of nicotine founded in the tobacco leaf.

Freebase nicotine is the common nicotine people adding into their vg/pg juice.


Where does nicotine salt have been used?

Nicotine salt has been used in cigalike devices and low wattage closed system devices, such as Aspire BreezePHIX etc.



Why do people use nicotine salt in those devices instead of the freebase nicotine juice?

To put it in a simple way, nicotine salt is easier to be absorbed within your body because of the benzoic acid in it. The nicotine salt is at the pH of  5 and it is more acidic than freebase nicotine whose pH is at 8. On the other hand, since freebase nicotine is basic(in the chemical way), it provides more harsher throat hit than nicotine salt which means that using nicotine salt can get you to a higher level of nicotine and is less harsh on your throat. The nicotine salt will provide more satisfying experience for vapers, however, since the throat hit is minimized, vapers need to be extremely cautious to avoid vaping too much of nicotine without noticing the throat hit. We all hate the nicotine headache.


Lastly, I need mention that the closed system device is much cheaper than most of the advanced boxmod on the market. Also, most of them are tiny and easy to carry around.
