WHAT ARE SALTS? WHAT IS FREEBASE NICOTINE?
Salt-based nicotine is a form of nicotine that is naturally occurring in tobacco leaves. In conventional e liquids, manufacturers often add “freebase” nicotine, which is considered to be the purest form of isolated nicotine. Nicotine salts on the other hand, are not limited to only nicotine - they also contain other organic compounds that are found naturally in the leaves of the tobacco plant. As a result, their molecular makeup is more stable. For users who don’t feel that their craving has been satisfied after vaping normal e-liquids, nicotine salts provide other compounds that allow the vaper to enjoy a vaping experience that more closely replicates smoking tobacco.
Freebase is isolated by removing protons from the nicotine, while nic salts provide nicotine in an unaltered state.
Nicotine Salt E-liquid can be deceiving because of its lighter throat hit, so it’s recommended that e-liquid with high concentrations only be used in low-powered, mouth to lung devices to prevent inhaling an excess of nicotine.
Because of their smoothness at higher concentrations, nicotine salt e-liquids have been recognized as a great option for those transitioning to vaping from other forms of nicotine. The more even absorption rate of salt nicotine e-liquid gives more long-term satisfaction with fewer puffs, making it simple to switch to vaping completely.
Freebase nicotine is the most common form of nicotine in E-liquid. It can be thought of as pure nicotine, producing a harsh throat hit when inhaled. Because of its purity, it also absorbs into the body rapidly, so freebase nicotine e-liquids are offered in lower, more manageable nicotine strengths.
Benefits of Freebase Nicotine
As freebase nicotine was the original form of nicotine used to produce e-liquid, it is easy to find at any vape store. Freebase nicotine e-liquids are normally more suitable for sub-ohm vaping in direct to lung devices because of their lower concentrations, although salt nic manufacturers have now begun to create low strength nicotine salt e-liquids to be used in high-powered devices. Still, freebase nicotine e-liquids are revered for their strong throat hit at lower concentrations, making them a popular option among vapers who are looking to reduce their nicotine intake while maintaining a satisfying sensation.
Staying Safe with Nicotine
When using e-liquid with high concentrations of nicotine, it’s very important to be vigilant about potential dangers so that you can keep yourself safe and avoid as much risk as possible.
Here are some things to keep in mind when using nicotine e-liquid.
Keep e-liquid out of reach of children and pets. Nicotine in any form can be extremely harmful to them, and can even lead to death in some cases.
Avoid getting any e-liquid with nicotine on your skin. If you do happen to get some on your body, wash it with warm water and soap immediately, as nicotine is an irritant.
Only use e-liquids with high nicotine concentrations in low-powered devices to avoid nicotine overdose. Symptoms of nicotine overdose include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Tremors or muscle twitches
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is recommended to stop vaping immediately and seek medical treatment.
