Standard (Freebase) Nicotine
The standard nicotine you will be used to in regular e-liquid is commonly called freebase nicotine. This style of nicotine is not bonded to anything else so it is quite volatile meaning it is an easily vaporised form of nicotine.
If you're using a device with a coil resistance larger than 1 ohm, nicotine salt products can be a great option that provides more powerful relief from nicotine withdrawal while minimising throat hit compared to freebase nicotine options.
A nicotine salt is a more natural state of nicotine - closer to the form nicotine is found in tobacco leaf. It is made up of freebase nicotine bonded with one or more organic compounds to create a more stable molecule.
This more natural make up of nicotine creates a molecule with a different pH compared to freebase nicotine. pH corresponds to throat hit so a more neutral pH (as found in nicotine salts) can create less of a throat hit - even at high nicotine levels.
Different salt nicotine solutions may have varying amounts of throat hit at the same strengths - 25mg nicotine salt eliquid might be super smooth on one flavour, but another flavour with the same strength might have more throat hit.
with high-strength nicotine salt delivers too much nicotine at once and can cause side effects such as headaches, nausea, and erratic heart rate.
