Welcome to the VC @MLS. I"m only aware of three types of NIC.

  2. Salts
  3. Synthetic

OG Base ?


Welcome to the VC Forum @MLS.

Just to add to what @SessionDrummer posted. I’m not sure if these are available elsewhere but they are from a website in the UK where I buy my nic from.

There are a bunch of different types of nic salt there.

Hybrid nic: Hybrid Base is a unique mix of pure nicotine, nicotine salt, and PG/VG, that combines the advantages of freebase nicotine AND nicotine salts in one product.

The others are explained in their FAQ:

Nicotine Benzoate appears to reduce or neutralise the taste of the nicotine and with a near neutral pH, (around pH 6.5) this results in an easy and soft throat hit. In research, Nicotine Benzoate was shown to have the best properties in taste, reduction of throat irritation and maintenance of nicotine stability making it one of the main and preferred salts for e-liquids. NicSalt-B is our recommended choice for Nicotine Salt!

Nicotine Salicylate is considered one of the more natural of the acid salts as it is commonly found in fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, nuts, and teas. Like Nicotine Benzoate the lower pH provides an enhanced and smoother vaping experience. Nicotine Salicylate is slightly more acidic (pH around 4.8). Test panels found Nicotine Salicylate to be smooth and little or no flavour changes were reported and nicotine delivery was reported to be strong, yet without any harsh throat hit. Salicylate can have a slight chemical taste when mixed with weak or non existent flavours.

Nicotine Malate is recommended with fruits as this can give a sour experience, while smooth and delicate tests show that malic acid can reduce coil life.

Nicotine Salts does not oxidise like freebase and will hold its pH level.

  • Freebase Nicotine – Normal hit
  • NicSalt-M – Smooth
  • NicSalt- B – Smooth
  • NicSalt-S – Ultra Smooth
