A Nic Salt Breakdown

We are all used to “freebase” or pharmaceutical grade nicotine, which is found in almost every e-liquid on the market. This form of nicotine is absorbed by the body at a more steady rate than nic salts and the more you vape, the more nicotine builds up in your system, to be released over a period of time.

Nic-shots take longer for the nicotine to be released into your system but will also keep your nic-cravings in check for a longer period of time. The purpose of nic salts is to get higher levels of nicotine without the throat hit of the freebase. For instance, an 18mg nic salt juice will feel closer to a 9 or 10mg. This makes it ideal for people who want to get a high dosage of nicotine but without the throat hit. Nic-salts are derived directly from the crystals found in tobacco leaves and are considered smoother to vape.

Some salts containing 20mg of nicotine, can feel and taste as low as a 10mg mixture - so care is required in their use, remember safety first people, and always keep a close eye on your nicotine levels when mixing your juice.

Nicotine shots, Nicotine Salts, Shortfills and E-liquid Quality

The first time I heard the term “nic-shot”, I was a little confused, so you can imagine what happened when “nic-salts” came about! To help you understand what these terms mean we’re going to explain them one by one and how to use nic salts. Sit tight, this is going to be an interesting read...

Short fills

A short fill is e-liquid with no nicotine in a bottle that has extra space for a nicotine shot/booster. Typically, short fill e-liquids are available in a 60ml bottle which has 50ml of e-liquid and enough space for you to add a 10ml nic shot.

Short-fills provide great value as you receive a lot more e-liquid for your money and the best part is, you don’t have to worry what strength it is since you can mix your own. This way, you can carry a large bottle with your exact mixture of nicotine instead of a handful of 10mls!

Oh, and it doesn’t stop there either, the bottle sizes vary, meaning you can have a 100ml bottle with space for two nic-shots. If this sounds daunting, fear not since mixing is very easy and safe.

Nicotine shot

The term “nic-shot” or “nic booster” is commonly given to a 10ml bottle of flavourless 18mg nicotine strength PG/VG solution, which is added to a short fill or nicotine-free bottle of e-liquid to create a vaper’s preferred nicotine strength, confused? Basically, a 50ml 0mg e-liquid plus a 10ml 18mg Nicotine shot = 60ml 3mg e-liquid.

Nic Salts

Nicotine salt e-liquids or salt nicotine e liquids can take two forms, they can be a pre-mixed ready to vape

e-liquids or they can be Nicotine Salt shots/boosters that can be added to short fills (see above).

Nic-salts or salt nics are derived directly from the crystals found in tobacco leaves and are considered smoother to vape, some people also claim they are more like smoking cigarettes. Some salts containing 20mg of nicotine, can feel and taste as low as a 10mg mixture — so care is required in their use, remember safety first people, always keep a close eye on your nicotine levels when vaping.

Nic-salts are less efficiently absorbed into the system so some manufacturers started changing their formulas to compensate for this. This meant that the nicotine could be broken down quickly when vaporised, thus allowing it to be absorbed faster whilst retaining its smoothness. Paired with a vape juice flavour of your choice, nic-salt shots can be the key to a quick vape when the time is of the essence, allowing for an instant nicotine rush for instant satisfaction. This form of nicotine, however, will fade quicker than the conventional “freebase” nic, due to the lack of built-up nicotine in your system, unlike cigarettes.

Over absorption of nicotine can lead to adverse effects, so we don’t recommend doing a lung hit with anything over 6mg on sub-ohm devices since you could lose track of how much you vape and high wattage devices could make it very harsh to vape. Giving yourself 5–8 seconds between vapes allows your body to absorb the nicotine so you don’t overdo it.

If you were following along with our FAQ series , then you would have heard me talk about the differences between premium vs standard e-liquid, or the types of juices you get from UK Ecig Store versus the type of e-juices you get in supermarkets or some petrol stations. The difference is not just the price, it’s the e-juices themselves. Some manufacturers take their time when releasing a new flavour or range of flavours and that’s because they will go through painstaking research and development to bring you the best of the best, the Crème de la Crème of flavours. You know that cocktail e-juice you’ve been really enjoying lately? you know, the one that makes you go, “That tastes just like a cocktail!” Well, that juice probably took months to develop and it’s the same thing with nic-shots, careful distillation and lots of TLC.

Always remember to wash your hands thoroughly after being in contact with nicotine though and please keep ANY nicotine products out of the reach of under 18s. It’s something we consider to be a simple thing, but people make mistakes. Nicotine is not a toy and should always be handled with care.

What is the difference between Freebase and Salts Nicotine?

There are 2 types of nicotine in the market. One is Freebase and the other is Salts. We are going to explain them to you below.

The nicotine that has been the most common since vaping has been a thing, is called freebase nicotine. It is the main method of producing nicotine that tobacco companies have been adoption all the way since the 60's, Freebase means that the nicotine is in its purest form compared to the other nicotine derivatives. In turn, the nicotine is much more potent when heated, therefore giving a stronger throat hit, and takes longer to be released into your system, but will also keep your nicotine cravings in check for a longer period of time.
Nicotine salt on the other hand, is found in tobacco leaves, when they are still in their natural state. Nicotine salt is also somewhat much more stable than purebase and smoother than the freebase form. Salt Nicotine also require a slightly higher temperatures to vaporise, therefore it does travel easily to your nicotine receptors in your body, providing a faster assimilation and "nicotine rush", so care is required in their use, remember safety first people, and always keep a close eye on your nicotine levels when mixing and vaping your e-liquid.
