  1. What is Nicotine Salt?
    • Nicotine salt is the natural form of nicotine found in tobacco leaves. Nicotine derived from tobacco leaves is slightly acidic with a pH of approximately 5. However, the most commonly used form of nicotine in e-liquids is called freebase nicotine. Freebase nicotine is slightly basic with a pH of approximately 8. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 where lower pH values indicate a more acidic substance, while higher pH values indicate a more basic substance. The chemical process for making the nicotine derived from tobacco leaves more basic is called de-protonation. This is the process that turns a natural nicotine extract into a freebase nicotine extract.
  2. What’s the difference between Nicotine Salt e-liquids and other e-liquids?
    • The major difference is how incredibly smooth Nicotine Salt juices are. In science terms, Nicotine Salt undergoes a proprietary processing treatment that neutralizes the harshness of freebase nicotine. In fact, nicotine harvested from the naturally grown tobacco plant produces what the industry refers to as Salt Nicotine and not freebase nicotine. In terms of flavour, there is little difference between the two.
  3. Can I use Nicotine Salt e-liquids in a sub ohm device?
    • No! You can only use Nicotine Salt juices in low wattage, high ohm devices, such as the Aspire Breeze Kit. We advise using a coil with a resistance of over 1.8 Ohms and at a wattage below 12 watts.
  4. Whoa! Doesn’t 40mg of nicotine seems like a lot?!
    • It only seems that way because until now, the vape industry has been using freebase nicotine exclusively. Neutralized nicotine, like the kind used in Nicotine Salt e-liquids, absorbs in your body at a different rate than freebase nicotine.
