Can Fruitiness Differ Between Freebase and Salt-Based E-Liquids


If you’re a fan of fruit flavors as much as you’re a fan of nicotine salts, you might be wondering how the two different types of nicotine affect the taste of your e-liquid.  After all, the best thing about indulging in a fruity vape juice is getting that refreshing, clean taste that reminds us of sipping on freshly squeezed juice.  So, if you were to switch to a vape juice made with nicotine salts, would you still be able to experience that same level of blissful satisfaction?

The truth is that the answer isn’t that simple.  The good news, however, is that we’re going to explain why your flavor might seem a bit different after switching to salt-based nicotine. 

What is the Difference Between Freebase Nic E-Liquids and Salt Nic E-Liquids?

To understand how the level of fruitiness might be affected by what type of nicotine you’re vaping, it’s important to first understand the differences between salt-based nicotine and freebase nicotine.  Salt-based nicotine, as you know, is made with nicotine salts.  These nicotine salts are naturally extracted from the tobacco plant and isolated so that they don’t contain any of the other compounds found in tobacco. 

Nicotine salts are known for being extremely potent and providing a much more intense nicotine sensation.  They can be enjoyed in high concentrations.  Freebase nicotine, meanwhile, is best vaped in low concentrations because it can feel quite harsh along the throat when inhaled.  This is because of the fact that freebase nicotine is chemically modified in a way that doesn’t really work with the high-output vaping devices that we use for sub-ohm vaping.

Why Might Fruity Flavors Differ in Intensity and Taste Depending on Type Being Vaped?

These factors could determine the fruit-filled vape level:

 The Nicotine Salts Themselves

Nicotine salts affect the body in a way that’s very different from their freebase counterpart.  Their potency creates a very strong punch to the back of the throat on the inhale.  This intense sensation can create a quick explosion of flavor as the vapor is drawn into the back of the mouth.  If you’re vaping a fruity flavor, you might notice that the complexity of the taste suddenly intensifies when you inhale.

Pod Systems

As you know by now, e-juices made with nicotine salts must be vaped with pod systems.  These portable devices are very different from the box mods that once dominated the industry.  Because they’re low-output systems, they don’t produce the thick, huge clouds that many of us are used to, but they do tend to promote a more pronounced flavor.  That’s because the temperature to which the e-liquid is heated doesn’t get so high that you lose some of the more subtle flavor notes.

MTL Vaping

Pod mods are MTL (mouth-to-lung) systems.  These types of systems allow the user to get a fuller flavor experience because the vapor is first drawn into the mouth to sit on the palate for a moment before being pulled into the lungs.  So, when using MTL systems, the flavor is experienced for a longer period of time.

Intensity Can Differ

As you can see, it’s true that the intensity of your fruity vape juice flavor can differ between different types of nicotine.
