What are Nicotine Salts?


Nicotine Salts give users more nicotine per puff out of smaller devices that use less power. The difference is in the juice itself – by lowering the ph level of the nicotine, manufacturers can now raise the concentration of the juice to produce a more satisfying vape in a smaller size.

The most important thing to remember when using nicotine salts, is to NEVER USE NICOTINE SALTS IN HIGH POWERED DEVICES

Old bulky devices provide a lot of wattage, or power, to vaporize a lot of low nicotine juice. Because Nicotine salts are concentrated, you need to use a low power device.

Because we specialize in nicotine salts, we only sell vapes that are safe for use with nicotine salts, and vapes that have been hand picked because of their quality. Be careful buying vapes and juice from other sources, but if you do, make sure they’re safe for use with nicotine salts.


Nicotine salt is the natural form of nicotine found in tobacco leaf. In the early days of vaping, they used a different version called “freebase” nicotine. It was more easily extracted from tobacco through chemical processes. The result was a harsh nicotine that could only be vaped in moderation, resulting in the 3mg – 18mg juice you’ve probably seen before. Anything over 18mg was too harsh to be vaped, so most people found vaping underwhelming because it didn’t kick their cravings.

With nicotine salts, you can comfortably vape higher levels of nicotine, from 24mg for light smokers all the way up to 50mg.

The breakthrough came from PAX Labs. Their research found that by lowering the ph level in to a “salt” the user would get a concentration of nicotine comparable to cigarettes, and thus vapeable nicotine salts were born.

This graph from PAX shows the concentration of nicotine in a user’s blood (orange) compared to a cigarette (purple) and conventional e-liquid (blue)

You can see that nicotine salt performs in a similar way to a cigarette, because it’s the type of nicotine that tobacco naturally contains.

Wonder why a lot of vapers end up going back to cigarettes? The answer is in the blue line at the bottom. No wonder so many people quit vaping the old stuff.

If you’ve smoked a cigarette, you’ve smoked nicotine salt.

Nicotine salts differ from “freebase” nicotine in number of ways

Nicotine Satisfaction – Nicotine Salts are concentrated and smooth they kick cravings faster than conventional vaping

  • Feels more like smoking a cigarette – with all the benefits of vaping

  • Nicotine Salt is the natural nicotine found in tobacco leaf – so it satisfies more like a cigarette

  • High quality and price conscious – With smaller devices that use less juice they deliver nicotine at a lower cost

  • No Big Clouds – By lowering the wattage of the vape and raising the nicotine concentration it doesn’t produce large clouds of vapor. This allows you to vape more discretely

  • Smaller devices are less expensive, easier to carry, and use less juice while still giving you plenty of craving-kicking nicotine, even better than older bigger devices.
