To summarize, nic salts are created by adding benzoic acid to classic freebase nicotine. The result is a lower pH level and nicotine that crosses the blood brain barrier more quickly. Smooth nic salts have been a favorite of heavy smokers and fans of mouth-to-lung vaping. 

With state level restrictions on flavors, tobacco nic salts are one of the only options left for many adult vapers. And while prefilled pods remain available in tobacco flavors, the combination of a refillable vape pod kit and a bottle of tobacco nic salts is simply a better price performer. 

We reviewed the best tobacco vape pods earlier in this series of articles. Due to the FDA ban on flavored vape pods, tobacco and tobacco menthol are your only flavor options if you vape prefilled vape pods. If you are interested in traditional tobacco ejuices, check out our deep dive that examines the best tobacco vape juices.

Rich Tobacco Vuse Alto

RJ Reynolds really delivers when it comes to tobacco nic salts and Rich Tobacco Vuse Alto is no exception. Both Vuse Alto tobaccos accurately capture the cigarette flavor.

The nic salts give it a lack of chest burn and throat hit, but otherwise this is a near perfect simulacre. 




Juul revolutionized vaping but their flavor lineup has been all but neutered. All that is left is a menthol and a tobacco flavor. Juul has two nic strengths: 2.5 and 5.0 percent. The pod holds 0.7ml, which seems pretty small compared to a Vuse Alto, let alone a 30ml bottle of eliquid. But their legions of dedicated fans swear by the flavor and performance of Juul.

Luckily, Virginia Tobacco Juul is a good tobacco nic salt. Smooth and very realistic. A bit of earthiness levens the sweeter tobacco elements.
