What's Your Salt Of Choice?

It can be guessed that if you’re reading this, you’re either already a vapor enthusiast involved in the vape juice world or you’re just getting started and may be looking for a reference as to where to start. We here at eJuice Direct decided to throw together a quick guide to help you make an informed purchase choice. It’s honestly the least we could do to ensure you definitely get the right product that you’ll more than likely enjoy. Let’s start with some terms:

Freebase / Standard: These are your normal juices that you’ll often see on a website or in a vape shop. They’re typically found in 60ml, 100ml, and in some cases 120ml with exceptions like twin packs or 30ml or 10ml sampler sizes. Some also have menthol variants in their flavor lines, which may not be a sensation best suited for everybody. They’re for use in sub-ohm tanks in which the power output of the coil doesn’t exceed 1 full ohm. Because of their formulation, they burn at lower temperatures. Freebase and Standard literally mean the same thing, so don’t shy away from the terminology.

Nicotine Salt: These liquids refer to the molecule most resembling natural nicotine that is found in the leaf of the tobacco plant. It’s generally considered to be more chemically stable as opposed to its freebase counterparts. The catch is that it doesn’t attach as easily to the nicotine receptors in the brain and requires a higher temperature to burn. Because they’re harsher to inhale in their natural state, Benzoic Acid is added to the solution to smooth out the hit and let the flavor show through. They have a higher nicotine concentration and more closely mimic the combustible material in cigarettes and the fulfilling feeling received from them. All of that complicated speak simply goes to say that you’ll get a lot better of a feeling while also avoiding any harsh hits that would come with such strength.

Sub-Ohm Salt: On the other hand, you can find standard vape juice that uses salt nicotine as the base ingredient but still uses the freebase formulation. This in turn still gives you the smoother, low temperature experience of standard eJuice with rich flavors but also gives you the brain receptor satisfaction from the strength of nicotine salt. A lot of people confuse the two, but these special blends really are safe to put in the tank of your mod. In theory, these sub-ohms provide the best of both worlds when it comes to hardware and liquid. Confusion of how to use these vape juices shouldn’t stop you from getting what you want.

Take Air Factory Salt ?Mystery? for example. It’s the nic salt counterpart to the popular standard ejuice product, but it uses nicotine salts to deliver the same berry taffy flavor and get the fulfilling nicotine zing of a cigarette. Putting this in your refillable pod system will also last longer than your average analog smoke. We offer it in 35mg and 50mg varieties, so you can pick a higher strength liquid, but still get the flavor.

Or if you prefer more dessert or breakfast flavors with a lighter nicotine strength, Vapetasia Salt Rainbow Road delivers both of those. The great thing about blends like this are that they create fusions you might not have thought of. You get the classic cereal taste with berries and rich creamy flavor, but with a 24mg or 48mg nicotine strength.

Then you have a juice like One Hit Wonder My Man, a whole new kind of beast. They use a formula called TruNic 2.0, which is their own proprietary blend of nicotine salt that’s made for the sub-ohm vape. You get delicious gelato flavor that’s been made with vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate. We’ll say it again just in case you missed it all this time, you can put this in your mod tank, but not you pod system. This true wonder of science should be used appropriately if you purchase it. Don’t let confusion about your options lead to a poor choice.

These are only a small set of products that we here at eJuice Direct carry. Check out our whole page of vape juice and nic salt eliquid brands that we carry. You’ll find any flavor that your palate may crave and a device to go along with whichever you choose. Whether you prefer the ease of standard juice and sub-ohm salts alike or simply want to branch into the saltier side of things, we have everything you could need to fully enjoy either one!
