Hybrid Nicotine: What is it and why might I use it?
Also known under the terms HIT and BOLD, hybrid nicotine is the combination of two forms of nicotine; salt and freebase. Each comes with their own pros and cons that can be balanced by combining both into what is known as a hybrid nicotine. Hybrid nicotine is a good option for new vapers or people who want to vape less salt nicotine.
Salt nicotine is smooth on the throat even in high doses and has a fast-acting effect on the brain. Salt nicotine is recommended for those looking to replace their cigarette habit with vaping.
Freebase nicotine has a rougher throat hit and takes longer to effect the brain, but lasts longer than salt nicotine. Those looking to decrease their nicotine use are may want to use freebase nicotine.
A blend of both salt and freebase, hybrid nicotine brings the best of both types of nicotine together, giving you a smaller head-hit and a longer lasting nicotine effect for those looking to try and get off cigarettes or salt nicotine. We have a line of E-Liquid that uses this nicotine profile- HYBRID. We also have select pre-filled pods available that come with a hybrid nicotine blend, often under the terms HIT or BOLD 50/35.
