OUR MONTHLY TOP 5 - SALT NIC & FREEBASE E JUICE
Ottawa’s friendliest vape shop experts share their TOP 5 e juice picks each month.
Herbal Vs. Nicotine Vaporizers
Nicotine can be consumed through e-cig devices instead of cigarettes. Unlike a nicotine patch or gum, vaping works better as a smoking cessation device because the vapor gives a smoke-like sensation and efficient nicotine delivery. These devices are perfect for people who want to quit all kinds of smoking, including cigarettes and hookah. They should NEVER be used by someone who has never smoked or does not have a nicotine habit. Weed vaporizers can be used if you want to quit smoking herbal cigarettes. You can manually adjust the temperature using an herbal vape to enhance the THC infused vapor.
Salt Nic Vs. Freebase E-Juice
Different types of nicotine-infused vape liquids can be used with electronic cigarettes. First of all, you should know that the most popular pre-mixed ones are salt nicotine (also known as nicotine salts) and freebase nicotine. Freebase Nicotine is the chemical in its purest form. This is the same type of nicotine that can be found in traditional tobacco products like nicotine lozenges, patches and gum. Salt Nicotine (aka salt nic, or nic salts), has been extracted from a tobacco plant itself and are highly concentrated doses. It is recommended that vape users try to match the nicotine dose from traditional cigarettes to the amount of nicotine in their juice.
Switching to vape? Get it right.
How many cigarettes, on average, do you smoke a day? This helps determine whether you need a high or low dose of nicotine to successfully kick your habit. Where and how do you want to use your vape? People with a medium to low nicotine level generally use freebase nicotine – which is the original type of nicotine found in e-liquids. People with heavy nicotine needs or looking for a quick fix may prefer the newer salt nicotine (aka salt nic or nic salts), because the high concentration provides instant relief from cravings. It’s very common for vapers to use freebase to relax while at home, and salt nics as a quick fix while at work. Need more info?
