5 Best Synthetic Nicotine Juices to Try in 2022
The arrival of non-tobacco nicotine (NTN) marks a new beginning for the independent vaping industry. The potential for cutting the last remaining cord with the tobacco industry is now in sight. Tobacco-derived nicotine (TDN) was the only option for vape juices until recently, and the use of nicotine derived from a tobacco plant is a major reason that vapes are regulated as a tobacco product.
Non-tobacco nicotine products are often referred as tobacco free nicotine (lowercase) in the same way that all copier machines were once called Xeroxes. But Tobacco Free Nicotine (TFN) is a specific product made by Next Generation Labs (NGL).
Synthetic nicotine does not use any part of the tobacco plant. In terms of the final product, synthetic nicotine has a more neutral flavor than tobacco-derived nicotine. This allows flavors to shine even clearer. Most adult vapers prefer sweet flavor profiles to tobacco, and this is no small deal.
Legacy Nicotine’s vaping subsidiaries and allies sell closed vaping systems that cannot be refilled; By federal law, these are now limited to only tobacco flavors. This is why they promote flavor bans, and they clearly will not be switching to synthetic nicotine manufactured by rival companies.
Production breakthroughs and efficiencies of scale have brought down the price of synthetic nicotine. While still more expensive than tobacco-derived nicotine, it is now competitive, and economies of scale could drive down this price further.
Adult vapers would benefit if synthetic nicotine eventually replaced TDN as the go-to nicotine in all vape juices.

Whether you prefer regular (freebase) nicotine vape juices with a high-VG level, nic salt vape juices or disposables, there is a synthetic nicotine vape juice that is perfect for you. It is likely you will enjoy the flavor even more than vape juices relying on their tobacco derived counterparts.
Pure Menthol Aqua eJuice Synthetic

Synthetic Nicotine Advantages
The tobacco industry profits from the sale of liquid nicotine to vape juice manufacturers. While only a small portion of each transaction, it still represents money going from the pockets of vapers into the hands of tobacco growers. Then there is the process of growing tobacco on an industrial scale.
Environmental Impact of Tobacco
Non-tobacco nicotine has smaller environmental footprint than tobacco-derived nicotine. Tobacco cultivation requires considerable acreage and is resource intensive. Pesticides, fertilizers, water, and fossil fuels are used extensively to grow tobacco on an industrial scale.
Converting hectares of industrial grown tobacco to more sustainable agriculture would be a net gain for the planet.
Picture the farm equipment, pesticides, growing sheds, fertilizer and millions of acres dedicated to growing tobacco. Now picture a single cutting edge facility, ISO certified, and pallets of starter materials. That is the difference in a nutshell.
Only a handful of companies have the technology and knowledge to manufacture synthetic and non-tobacco nicotine. It is possible to scale up synthetic nicotine production without contributing the environmental degradation of the planet.
Non-tobacco nicotine describes any nicotine not made from tobacco and is a general term. Synthetic nicotine is also a general term used to describe nicotine manufactured without the use of plant starter materials. Synthetic nicotine has been around for decades, first appearing in nicotine replacement therapy, research, and other scientific uses.
Science of Synthetic Nicotine
Whether it is TFN, synthetic nicotine, or tobacco-derived nicotine, the molecule is always the same. No matter the source, nicotine and its biological impact is the same.
Nicotine is a chiral molecule, meaning there are two isomers that are not mirror images. S-Isomer has the biological impact and R-Isomer nicotine is viewed as biologically inert. In naturally occurring nicotine, R-Isomer makes up only a very small percentage. During the manufacturing of synthetic nicotine, it is easiest to produce equal amounts of R- and S-Isomer nicotine and then potentize the final product by removing R-Isomer nicotine. If the R-Isomer is not removed, it takes twice as much nicotine by volume to have the same effect because S-Isomer is responsible for the characteristic, and addictive, properties of nicotine.
Synthetic nicotine product has a greater purity than nicotine extracted from the tobacco plant. But once they arrive in liquid form to be added to vape juice, the products are very similar. Synthetic nicotine has a bit more neutral of a flavor.
Both synthetic and tobacco-derived nicotine are sold in freebase nicotine form and can be converted into nicotine salts. Synthetic nicotine is flexible enough to replace tobacco-derived nicotine in any vaping application.
Glossary of Synthetic Nicotine Terms
Synthetic nicotine is a topic that is both simple and complex. One on hand, it is simply a liquid form of nicotine and only distinguishable from tobacco-derived nicotine because it is purer and imparts slightly less flavor into a vape juice. Yet the whole concept of relying on a synthetic form of a naturally occurring substance can raise red flags. There is really no reason for undue concern.
Synthetic nicotine is an addictive chemical. We have no interest in selling our products to anyone who does not currently use nicotine habitually. But molecularly, it operates in the same way because under the microscope it is the same molecule. Here are a few terms you may encounter when researching synthetic nicotine vape juices.
Tobacco Free Nicotine
Tobacco Free Nicotine (TFN) is the dominant player in the non-tobacco nicotine market. Their S and R-Isomer nicotine were the first cost-effective non-tobacco nicotine to hit the US market. Next Generation Labs (NGL) is not some shoddy operation operating in a trailer in the Mojave Desert or Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They have a cutting edge facility, numerous patents, and proprietary methods that allow them to create a pure and cost-effective non-tobacco nicotine product. They have invested millions refining their processes.
Non-tobacco nicotine (NTN) simply describes any nicotine manufactured without using raw materials from the tobacco plant.
Synthetic nicotine (SN) originally referred to pure S-Isomer nicotine that was made using no plant materials. This term has since expanded to cover the gamut of non-tobacco nicotine products.
Tobacco-derived nicotine (TDN) is the nicotine that was traditionally used in vape juices and still dominates the market. It is a liquid form of nicotine that is extracted and purified from the tobacco plant.
