What is Nicotine Salt?


This is the standard type of nicotine that is commonly used in regular e-liquid.

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 and it can be absorbed much faster in your lungs and in your brain.



Nicotine Salt, or NicSalt for short, is rising in popularity due to its high nicotine hit without the harshness. Nicotine Salt is a mixture of the pure nicotine extraction from tobacco leaf and benzoic acid. Benzoic acid is commonly used as a food preservative and is safe unless large quantities are taken internally. 

Vaping Nicotine Salt

NicSalt can be dangerous if inhaled in high strength and strong device. It is important for you to understand that the devices you use to vape the nicotine salt e-liquid will be different depending on the nicotine strength you choose. Nicotine salt with a high strength of 35mg or 50mg is recommended to be used in a low powered device such as the pod systems which are specifically designed for taking in nicsalt. If you’re looking for clouds, flavour and nicotine hit, a lower strength of nicotine such as 15mg and lower is recommended to be used in your sub-ohm device. Higher nicotine strengths used in high powered devices will most likely overwhelm you with too much nicotine, therefore, it is strongly suggested for you to not vape high nicotine salt e-liquid in high powered sub-ohm devices as it can be fatal.

The process of extracting nicotine from tobacco leaves you with nicotine in its purest form. This nicotine is used to make e-liquids or freebase that we see in the market today. Freebase nicotine has a high alkalinity with a pH level at approximately 7-8. This is important as the higher the alkalinity (nicotine), the harsher the inhale will be.
Nicotine salts on the other hand, is nicotine infused with acid thus reducing the pH level. This results in a stronger nicotine hit but without the harsh inhale. Apart from the advantage of having a smoother yet stronger nicotine throat hit, it is proven that nicotine salt e-liquid will enter the bloodstream faster than traditional e-liquid. Therefore, it provides a blood absorption rate closer to an actual cigarette.


A lot of people that don’t know about vaping will see that the e-juice contains Nicotine and not think there is any difference between an E-cigarette and an actual cigarette. There is. And the difference is huge.

Here are some facts about nicotine:


Cigarettes Vs Vape Devices

The key difference between traditional cigarettes and e-cigarettes is that e-cigarettes don’t contain tobacco. The health dangers of cigarette smoking come from the tobacco, and from the chemicals added during production, not from the nicotine.


What is Nicotine?

Nicotine is a naturally occurring chemical within tobacco, the effects of nicotine itself are similar to another popular drug, caffeine.


Is Nicotine Addictive?

Yes, Nicotine is an addictive drug, but there is no evidence to show it is more harmful than a cup of coffee.


Is Vaping Better Than Smoking?

There is plenty of research available online for you to read, and if you have questions we encourage you to consult a medical professional. There are online forums and testimonials from smokers that have effectively and quickly kicked the smoking habit using an electronic cigarette, gradually lowering their nicotine intake to remove all addiction to the drug. We make no such therapeutic claims ourselves.

Psychologists and tobacco-addiction specialists, including some in world-leading laboratories think it’s now time to distinguish clearly between nicotine and smoking. The evidence shows smoking is the killer, not nicotine. Source Scientific American //https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/is-nicotine-all-bad/

There is, of course, a nicotine-free option, our E-liquids.

If you have concerns about nicotine you can still enjoy the vaping experience asCrown Vape is available in 0mg, 3mg, & 6mg nicotine strengths. Your flavours will still be amazing and unique as they are not affected by the nicotine level.

What does each level mean?

0mg – No nicotine strength

6mg – Low to medium nicotine strength

12mg – Medium to strong nicotine strength

As a rough guide:

Cigarettes contain anywhere from 8 mg of nicotine up to 20 mg of nicotine. Most cigarettes are at the lower end of the spectrum, which puts the average amount of nicotine in one cigarette at 12 mg. So, if you are vaping an 18 mg e-liquid from a 1 ml tank or cartridge each day and 50% of the nicotine is present in the vapour, that would mean that you are ingesting about 9 mg of nicotine per day, far less than a single cigarette.

The most important thing to stress is that there is no conclusive report because all ecigs are not the same, all e-liquids are not the same and therefore, all figures will differ.
