Hybrid e-liquids also known as Hit Salts, mixes freebase nicotine and nicotine salts into a new blend combining both the sensation and effects to deliver a higher level of satisfaction or hit with a lower overall concentration of nicotine that meets the government guidelines and regulations. Hybrid Eliquids are also known as Hit Salts because of the addition of some freebase nicotine “punch up” the effect of the nicotine salt (they have a lot more oomph than normal nic salt eliquids but are smoother than freebase eliquids).
The Canadian federal government has implemented regulations capping nicotine levels at a maximum of 20mg/mL. Because of this many 10mg/20mg hybrid eliquid are crafted to replicate the sensations of the 25mg and 50mg eliquids.
For instance, Bold³⁵ and Bold⁵⁰ 20mg/mL blends originally developed by STLTH for BC are now available across Canada, including from 180 Smoke Vape Stores and online. Pachamama has also introduced Bold 50 20mg/mL blends to replace their original 50mg/mL nic salt, and Big Hit is an entirely new line of Hit Salts with several hybrid nicotine options.
Different manufacturers have different proprietary blends between nicotine salt and freebase eliquid levels so not all hybrid eliquids are the same. Regulations make it difficult for manufacturers to describe their products as accurately as they would like so it’s a good idea to ask the staff at your local 180 Smoke vape shop or check reviews for any personal experience they can offer to figure out if a particular product is right for you.

The Big Hit line currently only includes 3 flavours, but the recent explosion in popularity is sure to lead to more options coming available soon.
