Vaping for Beginners: What is the Difference Between Freebase Nicotine and Salts?

It can feel like there is a lot to get your head around when you take up vaping - with coils, e-liquids, shortfills, mods and much more to learn about. One area that most people who are new to vaping are interested in, especially those who are looking to quit smoking, is how to get the right amount of nicotine in their vape to satisfy their cravings. If you’ve been exploring different types of e-liquids, then you might have come across Freebase Nicotine and nicotine salts

But what's the difference between the two and which one is better for your vape? Our team has put together this post to explore the difference between freebase nicotine and nicotine salts, telling you everything that you need to know about them as a vaping beginner.

What Is a Freebase Nicotine?

Freebase nicotine is the original nicotine in e-liquids. It creates a strong throat hit, which can feel a bit too strong at super high nicotine strengths. Nicotine freebase feels harsher on the throat, and suits people who prefer that feeling or who like to puff little and often throughout the day.

What Is a Nicotine Salt?

A nicotine salt is a bottle containing a type of nicotine that occurs naturally in tobacco leaves and has benzoic acid added to it which creates a smooth and mild throat hit when inhaled. Nicotine salts are available in a wide range of flavours. They offer users the purest form of nicotine on the market, with the same nicotine that is in cigarettes but without all of the nasty and harmful chemicals.

How Do They Differ?

Although both freebase nicotine and nicotine salts contain nicotine, the type of nicotine that they contain is different. The nicotine in nicotine salts is absorbed by your body a lot quicker, meaning that it will give you the nicotine hit that you’re looking for much faster and help ward off your cravings quicker. They also provide a much smoother vaping experience that is less harsh on your throat than nicotine shots. So you can enjoy a much higher nicotine strength with nicotine salts but without an uncomfortable and harsh feeling on your throat.
