Freebase vs Nicotine Salts
Freebase nicotine is nicotine in its purest form. Freebase has been used since the 60’s in cigarettes, before vaping was even thought of. Freebase nicotine is often used in juices with strengths between 3mg to 12mg, while it can be used in juices with higher strengths it is often better to use nicotine salts for higher strength juices because the freebase nicotine tends to be harsher to vape on. Nicotine salts on the other hand, are a different form of nicotine. Nicotine salts are the natural state of nicotine that is found in tobacco leaves. Nicotine salts are all the craze at the moment, as they make it easier for vapers to vape higher nicotine strengths as they produce a smoother hit.
What Devices to Use for Nicotine Salts
Nicotine salts are best used in pod systems; this is because nicotine salts were created to try to replicate a cigarette, which sub-ohm devices do not do as they produce a lot of vapour and are used at a higher wattage. It is also best to use them with a lower wattage as that is how they were designed to be used.

Nicotine salts are also a great way to start if you are considering quitting smoking as they provide that much coveted nicotine hit.
