What are Nicotine Salts? First off, they are not actual solid “salts” like table salt we use to add to foods. Rather a nicotine salt is a liquid compound that has been modified from its freebase form to its salt form, in this case, known as its acidic form.
Benifits of Nicotine Salts
Taking a step away from the science of nicotine salt e-juice, what does this all mean for you as a user? Why should you try nicotine salts rather than just sticking to ordinary freebase nicotine juice?
- You’ll get more nicotine, more quickly: In general, nicotine salts formed using a suitable acid and paired with the right sort of device seem to get nicotine to your blood more quickly.
- You can use higher-nicotine juices: You don’t need to consume 10mL of e-juice per day if you can have a 35mg/ml e-juice instead of a 6mg/mL one.
- Nicotine salt e-juice has a longer shelf-life: Nicotine salts are more stable than freebase nicotine, which means that nicotine salt e-juice will last longer in storage without the nicotine degrading.
- You don’t need a powerful device: Nicotine salt e-liquids are more efficient at getting you nicotine, so you don’t need to compensate with a 150 W box mod – a simple, tiny device can be just as satisfied.

How do you use nicotine salts? What is the difference between normal nicotine solution and Nicotine Salt? Nicotine Salts can be used in the same manner as traditional nicotine solution, the difference lies in the capabilities of what the Salt can deliver. With the traditional nicotine blends, there are natural properties that a normal nicotine solution carries that does not permit the ability to vape at a higher nicotine strength. Normal nicotine solutions also may not deliver something a smooth as one may desire but what the salt does is that it takes those desired features and combines them into one. Nicotine salts permit the ability to vape at a much higher nicotine strength without the harshness or throat hit that would traditionally occur if using normal nicotine solution. For those who do not want to vape at a higher nicotine strength, what the Salt provides is the smoothest vaping experience. At low concentrations of 3 or 6, using Nicotine Salts could easily cause one to overlook the presence nicotine in their juice because of how smooth the experience is.
How do I handle nicotine salts? Why is the liquid color different? Nicotine Salts should be treated with the same care as standard nicotine solutions. The same amount of nicotine is still present in the Nicotine Salt solution as compared to an equivalent standard nicotine solution. The reason why the Nicotine Salt solution has a different color is due to the acidification process. The color of the Nicotine Salt is the conclusion of its creation rather than, the oxidation of the Salt. An additional benefit of the process is that the Nicotine Salt contains anti-oxidative properties that will benefit the nicotine in extending its shelf life.
