So, you purchased yourself a starter kit, chose the right color of vaporizer, and got everything set and done for an ideal vaping experience.

However, one question lingers in the back of your mind: what sets nicotine salts and freebase nicotine apart, and which is better for you? After all, knowing the difference between these two would be essential for you as a new smoker.

Whether it’s the first time you hear of these terms or are somewhat familiar with them, it wouldn’t hurt to expand your knowledge. Keep reading for a full review of nicotine salts vs. freebase nicotine and deem your winner.

What are Nicotine Salts and Freebase?

Both of them are liquids or e-juices used for vaporizing devices. The quality of the products can vary so one can find different kinds of e-juices on the market.

They contain propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), a flavoring of choice, and the most important one – nicotine.

As the first three ingredients remain the same for both, they mainly differ in the fourth ingredient, a.k.a. the nicotine. There are two types of them, as the name explains: freebase nicotine and nicotine salt.

What Makes Them Different?

The most important difference when we speak of vaping is that these two types of nicotine are used for different vaporizers.

Nicotine salts are generally used for low-powered, smaller devices such as pod systems, whereas the freebase is best for larger, more powerful vaporizers.

The following is a more thorough explanation of their other differences – like how much nicotine they contain and the high they induce.

Nicotine Salts

Nicotine salts deliver a smoother and more manageable vaping experience and are produced with a slight alteration of the freebase nicotine.

Regardless of their mild high, nicotine salts contain more nicotine than the freebase. They can hold from around 20mg up to 59 mg of nicotine.

However, the salts have more additives and preservatives to them. Plus, nicotine salt e-liquid has benzoic acid, which can lead to a burning sensation in the throat.

Freebase Nicotine

This type is produced directly from the plant, so it is pure and has fewer additives than nicotine salt. On the other hand, it has an alkaline imbalance in most cases, resulting in a bitter experience when the smoke passes through the throat.

To alleviate the experience and adjust it to the user’s preferences, lighter liquids with nicotine content variety up to 3mg exist. If the e-juice contains more than 6mg, the vaping experience becomes uncomfortable, especially for non-regular smokers.

The e-juice manufacturers adjust the level of nicotine content between 0mg to 12mg when producing kits that use liquids with freebase nicotine.

The result of freebase nicotine can be pleasing nonetheless, as you get a slight rush when the smoke passes through your throat. Most of the customers who enjoy this sensation use freebase-infused liquids.

The Vaping Devices and Their Nicotine

Since both types of nicotine juices have different audiences, the devices that represent their capacity offer different experiences for users. Depending on what your vaping expectations are, you can choose from either of them.

Vape Pod Systems and Nicotine Salt

This is the one if you want a vaping experience that would provide a smoke effect and satisfy your daily nicotine requirement. These devices have the nicotine hit you’ve always craved without the traditional cigarettes.

It is important to note that very high nicotine content might create an unpleasant experience.

Nicotine salts are the perfect match because they’ve been made precisely for vape pod systems. This combination uses lower power, has a smaller coil, and has higher resistance. Plus, you can blow smaller clouds of smoke with higher nicotine concentration.

Sub-ohm Vaping Systems and Freebase Nicotine

Since sub-ohm devices have bigger coils and more power, using them with e-juices containing freebase nicotine is always the right choice.

These devices will do the job if you desire an immense smoke cloud and a lower nicotine level. You can also use the liquids for pod systems with a minor alteration for a more discreet experience with little smoke yet the same low nicotine content level.

As mentioned above, most pod systems are adapted to be paired with nicotine salt. So, if the user wants to convert it for different use, they must adjust the vape pod according to their requirements.

The devices That Can Handle Both

There’s a certain number of devices that you can use both with nicotine salt and freebase nicotine. The type of pod and coil the device carries decides the liquid you’ll be able to use.

So if you want an alternative, you may ask the salesman to help you with the alterations and do them for you – if possible. Or, if you have experience with devices, maybe adapting some features on your own would help you get the desired result.

Key Takeaway

When shopping online or in a store, it is always important to remember a few facts about nicotine to decide what kind of experience you want to get out of it.

What we can conclude from the points above is:

  • Nicotine salt has more nicotine content, its strength ranging from 20mg to 59mg;
  • Freebase nicotine has less nicotine content, its potency ranging from 0mg to 12mg;
  • E-juices infused with nicotine salt offer a smoother, milder experience but satisfy a higher need for nicotine;
  • E-juices infused with freebase nicotine have a harsher sensation on the throat when smoked and are perfect for customers looking for a lower nicotine level;
  • Smaller devices, like vape pod systems, use liquids containing nicotine salts;
  • Larger devices, such as sub-ohm vaping systems, use liquids containing freebase nicotine;
  • Nicotine salt has more additives to it;
  • Freebase nicotine comes straight from the tobacco plant, so it’s purer.

The excellent news about vaping is that, compared to traditional smoking, you can adapt it to your needs and wishes.
