Before we jump into the article, we think it's best to define who vapers are and what sets them apart from other smokers. After careful consideration, we thought it best to have a fellow vaper define this: "The standard of e-liquids over the last few years has essentially created what the world thinks of as a vaper; a flashy, cloud-chasing individual that would flaunt their sub-ohm setup without a care in the world. This new standard of Nicotine Salt vaping returns to its roots as to how our industry became popular in the first place: to deliver a safe and discreet, yet generous amount of nicotine, to those that are taking part in the experience specifically for that." ~Martin
Enter Nicotine Salts, the pen-ultimate form of nicotine delivery for those that wish to return to the original form of smokeless-tobacco consumption.
You're probably thinking to yourself, "how would one differentiate the characteristics of traditional e-liquid and nicotine salt e-liquid?" To answer it plainly, it's all about the experience.
Freebase nicotine, such as our BLVK, WYTE, FRZN, CHBY, and MILK collections are considered to be the purest form of nicotine and has proven to the be most popular avenue of nicotine delivery since the industry took off several years ago. To create freebase nicotine, the compound if added to a mixture of vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) which effectively carries the nicotine when vaporized at higher temperatures.
Similar to freebase nicotine, nicotine salts also stem from the purest form of the compound. Without throwing in an overwhelming amount of biological jargon, the only difference between freebase nicotine and nicotine salts lies in a chemical modification done to the ph and alkalinity levels. When a chemical compound such as benzoic acid is introduced to the equation, the chemistry of the nicotine compound is altered.
The result? Nicotine Salts are able to be consumed at much higher potency levels off of much lower temperature levels; thus returning to an option for the vaper to enjoy the near endless-supply of premium e-liquids off more-discreet (and often more affordable) devices such as open-pod delivery systems.
Nicotine salts obviously have their pros and cons. Ultimately, since the process of developing the salt versions of your favorite e-liquid blends can be detailed down to an experience level, we'll try to keep the comparison as objective as possible.
