Nicotine or Nicotine Salt
Superiorbase offers e-liquid manufacturers and mixologists the very best nicotine salt base at discount prices and in a wide variety of concentrations. Many first-time vapers often complain that vaping does not provide the same nicotine hit as a combustible cigarette. As a result, the urge to relapse back into smoking can be overwhelming, which often prevents many smokers from making the permanent transition to vaping. Salt Nicotine Juice provides a smoother, more appealing nicotine hit from recipes containing higher nicotine concentrations. And much like conventional liquid nicotine, salt nic is also unflavored.
Nic salts are a relatively new product that many vapers and e-liquid retailers & customers are raving about. Instead of using traditional liquid nicotine solutions, often referred to as “freebase” nicotine, many e-juice mixologists prefer to buy salt nicotine because of the smoother, more appealing nicotine hit that they provide. The vaper experiences their nicotine fix much faster and more profound than through vaping conventional e-liquids. It’s the ability to vape more nicotine per puff that makes nic salts so very appealing.
Nicotine salts are essentially a crystallized version of nicotine that comes pre-dissolved inside a special blend of liquid Propylene Glycol (PG) and/or Vegetable Glycerin (VG).
Superiorbase’s Nicotine salts are clean and pure. It is also a naturally extracted product that is considered less volatile and more stable than freebase solutions. Therefore, nicotine salt e-juice is often considered much easier to inhale than regular vape juice due to this lower volatility and increased bioavailability. The throat hit is less harsh, which means that DIY’ers and e-liquid manufacturers can crank up the nicotine concentrations of their favorite recipes without negatively affecting the associated throat hit.
Mouth-to-lung vapers simply love to buy nicotine salts vape juices! They also work well with lower-powered vape mods, pod mods, and other devices.

Nicotine Salts are created when nicotine base is combined with an acid or multiple acids. This process creates a salt nicotine solution and reduces the throat hit on higher strength nicotine vape juice.
Why do I want to vape on salts? Don’t let the name confuse you. The term “Nicotine salt” also known as nic salt just refers to the scientific definition. It doesn’t mean it’s infused with the tasty mineral you sprinkle on your mac and cheese. In chemical terms, a salt results when an acid reacts with a base. Simply put, nicotine salts are made by mixing pure nicotine (base) with certain kinds of acids. I know what you're thinking right about now, Acids? That sounds worse? Actually, nicotine salts exist in tobacco, naturally. So if you have smoked a cigarette you have experienced nicotine salt.
Nicotine Vs. Nicotine Salt
Nicotine, also referred to as freebase nicotine or nicotine liquid is directly extracted from tobacco. In this process, all the impurities found in tobacco are stripped away. Leaving you with nicotine in its pure form. This form of nicotine is used in almost all e-juices on the market today. Freebase nicotine has a high alkalinity with a PH level around 7-8. Why are you telling me this? Well, because the PH level directly correlates with the severity of harshness the vaper experiences during inhalation. The higher the nicotine strength, the harsher it becomes.
The creation of nicotine salt is achieved by strategically infusing specific acids to freebase nicotine. What this does is reduce the PH level of the nicotine solution, resulting in less irritation. Meaning you can vape higher nicotine salt strengths without that rough throat hit.
Advantages of Nicotine Salts
We already talked about one advantage that nic salts provide, a smoother hit allowing you to vape higher nicotine concentrations. The next major advantage to using nic salt ejuice is the nicotine blood absorption rate. It has been proven that nicotine salt vape juice will enter the bloodstream faster then traditional vape juice. Nic salts provide a blood absorption rate closer to an actual cigarette.
This is beneficial to those trying to quit smoking because nic salt e-liquid is mimicking the effects of that cancer stick you're trying to put down. Therefore, if you are struggling with the transition to vaping because you are not getting the same effects as a cigarette then you might want to give nicotine salt e-juice a try.
Vaping Nicotine Salts
When vaping nicotine salt ejuice it is important to understand that the devices used to vape nicotine salt e-liquid will differ depending on the nicotine strength you choose. If you are simply looking to put down the cigarette than a higher nicotine salt strength such as 25mg or 50mg while using a low powered pod device is recommended. LNW's propriety Nicotine Salt formulation was designed to be used as Sub Ohm salts. If you like chucking clouds and getting tons of flavor with your high powered sub ohm device than we recommend turning it down a notch and using a lower nic salts ejuice in the neighborhood of 6mg - 15mg. Higher nicotine strengths used in high powered devices will likely overwhelm you with too much nicotine so it is strongly advised you do not vape high strength nicotine salts ejuice in high powered, sub ohm devices.
