Freebase is the most commonly used and the purest form of nicotine in e-liquids. The making of freebase nicotine includes the addition of ammonia to pure nicotine. This addition is vital as nicotine by itself would not be very potent in the body. Scientifically, nicotine is made up of negatively charged particles which means that when it enters the body, the particles cannot move across organic membranes very well.

However, we must ‘freebase’ the nicotine to boost its bioavailability and effectiveness in the body. (The amount of a substance absorbed by the body is referred to as bioavailability.) Freebase nicotine is found in the majority of e-liquids on the market, known as freebase e-liquids.

Nicotine salts are an alternate type of nicotine used in e-liquids. These are contained naturally in the tobacco leaf, so if you’ve ever smoked a regular cigarette, you’ve already had them! Even at high doses, nic salts can produce a gentler, smoother throat impact.

When To Use Freebase Nicotine?

If you’ve been vaping for a while or aren’t vaping for the sole aim of quitting smoking (i.e. you’re just vaping for fun), you might prefer freebase nicotine.

Higher powered, high wattage, mod or sub-ohm devices are better suited to freebase nicotine e-liquids. If you’re a cloud chaser searching for a more powerful, ‘advanced’ vaping experience, freebase nicotine is the way to go.

Compared to nic salts, this can result in a sharper throat hit and slower nicotine absorption. These aspects are less essential to many individuals than employing powerful mod devices with their e-liquids. In addition, freebase nicotine e-liquids frequently offer more unique flavour combinations.

When To Avoid Freebase Nicotine?

Freebase nicotine is not recommended for persons looking for a quick and easy approach to quitting smoking. Nic salts may be more helpful in this situation because they have a faster nicotine absorption rate and a milder throat hit, even at higher doses. This means they are more closely resembling the feeling of smoking a typical cigarette and can deliver more enjoyment to people who demand a higher level of nicotine in their system.

Nic salts may be more appropriate for you than freebase nicotine if you use a smaller, lower power device like a vape pen or pod system. You can still use freebase nicotine, but make sure you aim for a 50/50 PG/VG ratio.

PG/VG Ratio

Nic salts usually have a 50/50 PG/VG ratio, while freebase nicotine has a 70/30 PG/VG ratio; these might vary, depending on brands.

Smaller, less expensive devices, like pod systems and vape pens, benefit from e-liquids with a 50/50 PG/VG mix. This is because they don’t take a lot of power to produce a lot of flavours.

With more powerful mod devices, e-liquids with a PG/VG ratio of 70/30 will work well. These e-liquids will produce larger clouds, but they will also necessitate more power from the device to get a strong flavour profile.

If you have a smaller, lower wattage device, we at Pak Vapes recommend you a wide range of freebase nicotine flavours with a PG/VG ratio of 50/50 or 30/70 like Beyond Berry Melonade Blitz.
