Salt Nic vs. Regular Vape Juice
The Difference Between Salt Nic and Regular Vape Juice
In this article we compare and contrast the two types of vape juices in order to help you better understand what it is that you’re inhaling. We begin with a detailed description of each kind of vape juice, a list of our most popular brands and flavors, and end with which devices work best.
Regular Vape Juice is also known as Freebase Nicotine which is a method that tobacco companies have been using since the 1960’s. Freebase is the traditional way of ingesting nicotine that is closest to its purest form; therefore having a higher pH. Freebasing was invented by Phillip Morris of Marlborough which essentially transforms the nicotine ions into a free state by removing the positive charge. This makes it much easier to travel through organic membranes in the body thus giving you that rush of nicotine to your brain and lungs quicker. Some advantages of vaping with Regular Vape Juice is that it provides excellent flavor, a smooth throat hit, and great vapor production. Traditional vape juice typically has a VG/PG ratio of 70/30 which allows for Direct To Lung (DTL) inhalation. Nicotine levels of Freebase Vape Juices come in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, and 12mg. Since Regular Vape Juice can be vaped with much higher wattage (some devices go up to 230W!!!), the juice burns much quicker than salt nicotine which is why it produces massive clouds and why bottles can reach up to a whopping capacity of 120mL.

What Device Should I Use for Regular Vape Juice?
Salt Nicotine Vape Juice was born from necessity. People wanted to vape higher nicotine levels without the harsh throat hit or negatively impacting flavor production. Scientists at PAX Labs discovered the secret to vaporizing salt nicotine at lower temperatures while making the absorption rate into the body faster. The magic ingredient? Benzoic acid. This aspect of salt nicotine also allows manufacturers to increase nicotine levels in vape juice without diminishing the flavor. One of the main advantages of Salt Nicotine Vape Juices, besides the flavor and satisfaction, is that it is likely the most cost effective way to vape. Due to the lower pH and reduced alkalinity, salt nicotine can be vaped at lower wattages which burns juice slower thus reducing the need to refill. Salt Nicotine has the same amount of nicotine that is found in tobacco leaves and usually have a VG/PG ratio of 50/50. Nicotine levels for this type of vape juice are typically between 25mg to 55mg, perfect for Mouth To Lung (MTL) vaping. Since the nicotine levels of salt nicotine are much higher, they are recommended for people trying to quit smoking because it imitates the feeling of smoking a cigarette. Benefits of salt nicotine include intuitive devices, higher nicotine levels, and longevity.
