The enjoyment of vaping is always one step ahead into finding the right combination of flavor and nicotine strength; if you want to add clouds on top of that, you will have the whole picture. 

So, the journey of a beginner vaper consists of many trials and errors, more experimental phases just until you will find what works best for your taste buds.

Although some people think that vaping is just about blowing clouds, the process of getting there is much more complex, and to some extent, it's almost like a hobby where you are continually improving and learning new things as you grow into it. With all the pleasures that come from indulging your time into it also!

So nic salts have their pro points one of the most important - it's technically cheaper. While nic salts themselves are a touch pricier, your e-cigarette will deliver nicotine more efficiently. That technically translates to vaping less, consuming less juice, and hey presto, more cash in the bank.

So with that said, let's start. We came here to talk about how you can successfully combine nic salt with max VG vape juices. Before jumping to combining your juices, let's dive into it and start at the beginning.

What are nic salts and how to vape them?

You might wonder, firstly, why would you need nic salts when you have regular vape juices? Well, it all starts with the device you're using, and the fact that upgrading to the big leagues of 100-watt devices and 5mL tanks should be a choice, not a necessity. 

Sadly, this means that people who prefer a smaller, cheaper, and a more discreet vaporizer will have to settle for a vape pen that is unpleasant overall—or fork over tons of cash and navigate a tiny supercomputer. Only because it doesn't burn the juice in a way to deliver the best nicotine hit best possibly.

Nicotine salts, on the other hand, seem to be the magic solution to this problem, and here is where they come into play. 

The Nic Salts are made from nicotine, which in its natural state, can be found within the tobacco leaf. The salts contain not only nicotine but various other organic components. Nic Salt is a compound where the nicotine is bonded to other chemicals to increase its potency. Nic salts are considered to be one of the most efficient ways to deliver nicotine to your body.

If this form of nicotine were to be added to the liquid that we vape, we'd need to vape it at extremely high temperatures for the nicotine solution to be effective.


We highly recommended avoiding using nic salts in high-powered devices or sub-ohms to prevent excessive nicotine consumption.

What is max VG? 

Max VG means any e-juice that contains 70% VG or higher. 

E-juice will be labeled as the percentage of VG (Vegetable Glycerin) to PG (Propylene Glycol). This is the secret that makes every flavor slightly different, and the e-juice mixologist will fine-tuning each flavor to provide an optimum vaping experience.

What happens when you mix nic salt with max VG?

Now when you mix the two, you will get something that we can call a watered-down nic salt—lowering its nicotine concentration.

The majority of nic e-liquids available in the market have a 70/30, 80/20, or max VG ratio. However, every nic salt vape juice has a 50/50 ratio because this base seems to best support salt-based nicotine.

Vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol substantially act as an automobile that allows absorbing nicotine with every hit, as we all know. And almost every nic salt base e-liquids have a ratio of 50% vegetable glycerin (VG) and 50% propylene glycol (PG).

A critical difference between nicotine salt and freebase nicotine

Freebase means that the nicotine is in its purest form compared to the other nicotine derivatives. In turn, the nicotine is much more potent when heated, and it can be absorbed much faster in your lungs and your brain.

Nic salts work better at delivering nicotine in your body without high temp as compared to regular vape juices. It would provide a better vaping experience for those who need the nicotine to be there, and it's recommended for those who are just starting, and regular vape juices just don't do the job.
