What are Nicotine Salts?


The type of nicotine that is ordinarily used in e-liquid is “freebase” nicotine and is an alternative to NIC salts, a form a nicotine more recently introduced in the vaping industry, notably in the form of our Nanopods closed pod system device.

Nic Salt also appears to have little or no effect on the flavour of a vape which means flavoured pods which leads to a much richer, flavourful vaping experience.


For customers looking to quit smoking or swap from a larger mod device to a more closed pod system style device we recommend the switch to our personal favourite pod system, NanoSTIX and NanoPODS.


NanoSTIX have been developed with the sole purpose of appealing to current adult smokers and have focussed their efforts on mimicking and even improving on the satisfaction that traditional cigarettes bring to an addict.

The key ingredient in NIC salts is benzoic acid which lowers the pH creating a less harsh hit that allows you to smoke higher nicotine concentrates.


The benefits of NIC salts is that you can get a more nicotine more quickly, they have a longer shelf life and you don’t need a powerful device to smoke it.
