Hybrid e-liquids 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 proposed 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, in B.C. where there is already a 20mg nicotine cap implemented, STLTH has recently introduced a hybrid “bold” blend at 20mg to replace their 50mg pods that are currently available in other provinces. These pods aren’t currently available through 180Smoke as they are limited exclusively to B.C. but we have created our own line of Hybrid Eliquid in Big Hit which is available now in three flavours: Big Tobacco, Big Menthol, and Big Berry.
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.
They are very new products in Canada but the market is likely to explode because of the aforementioned government regulations so it’s a good idea to check them out now while it’s a choice instead of a requirement.
