Title: All You Need to Know About Synthetic Nicotine

Synthetic Nicotine
All You Need to Know About Synthetic Nicotine
What comes to mind every time nicotine is
mentioned is tobacco, irrespective of whether
its meant for vaping, smoking, or medicinal
purposes? Nicotine is mainly obtained from
tobacco, and this is a logical affiliation and
thus often products that contain nicotine are
subjected to the same legislation as tobacco
products. Sometimes, though not all times,
nicotine is generated from non-tobacco products
which are regarded as synthetic nicotine. For
the longest time, tobacco products have been
profiled with unfortunate reputations by
agencies as having dangerous effects on your
health such as lung infections and
cardiovascular diseases. But this is absolutely
different when it comes to e-cigs because
theres neither combustion nor production of
smoke. Besides, the n icotine contained in these
vape flavors is pharmaceutical grade nicotine
which is 99.9. Nicotine keeps consumers using
nicotine products, even when theyre compelled to
quit. Its highly addictive as it changes the
way our brains work, triggering cravings for more
when we go for some time without ingesting it.
Some nicotine products including vape flavors
and cigarettes deliver nicotine to the
bloodstream very fast where its absorbed into
the brain in a fraction of a second. Teens and
young people are at higher risk of becoming
highly addicted because their brains are
The majority of them arent aware of how easy it
is to become a slave of nicotine products as a
great percentage of them are misguided by peer
pressure. In adolescents, exposure to nicotine
can damage normal brain development and cause
long-term disorders like increase impulsivity,
depression, bipolar, or mood disorders. Thats
why its always advisable to sell nicotine
products to persons above 21 years of age. Away
from the adversities of nicotine, one of the main
reasons for switching from s moking t o vaping
is the need to reduce health risks associated
with smoking. Also, addiction to the alkaloids,
nicotine, in particular, found in tobacco
alongside the experience of smoking, vaping is
such a significant way of eliminating the harms
posed by smoking ordinary cigarettes. The
nicotine used in vape flavors is extracted from
tobacco plants and this implies that
technically, vape flavors are classified as part
of the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD). Also,
it means that vape flavor producers have limited
ability and licensing to promote and market
their products. For instance, most vaping sites
require visitors to those sites to declare their
age before being allowed to view the content.
Synthetically generated nicotine, simply
synthetic nicotine is a major replacement to free
smoking and its less restricted by tobacco
product legislation. But whats synthetic
nicotine and hows its safety? Synthetic
Nicotine Vs. Tobacco Derived Nicotine Like
caffeine in coffee and tea, nicotine is a sort of
stimulant that causes addiction after consuming
it for some time. Whereas the largest source of
nicotine is a tobacco plant where its found in
high concentrations, nicotine can as well be
extracted from other unsuspected sources such as
the nightshade family of herbs, but in very low
concentrations. Its been established that common
foodstuffs like green pepper, potato, cocoa, and
tomato among others contain small quantities of
nicotine. A common misconception about nicotine
is that, when used in small quantities, it does
not present any unanticipated harm to your
health. But it is through the combustion of
tobacco content to generate carcinogenic products
and deadly gases (by smoking) thats
deadly. Whereas nicotine is probably the
chemical that makes smokers firmly hooked to
ordinary cigarettes, there are better and safe
ways of consuming it by shifting from regular
cigarettes to e-cigarettes. In the new method, a
large percentage of those carcinogens, tar, and
poisonous gases are gotten rid of. E-cigarettes
and vape flavors are available in wide varieties
and vapers can select their most favorite flavors
and nicotine strengths. For instance, if youre
an ex-smoker of strong cigarettes made from
rolling tobacco, youll probably go with a 1.8
nicotine strength vape flavor and this will give
an equal experience. If you wanted to r educe
your nicotine consumption, then from here, your
next step would be 1.2 nicotine strength, then
move on to 0.6, and later to zero-nicotine vape
flavor. And this will work exemplary, something
that would be hard to achieve with ordinary
Vape flavors used in e-cigarette contain
pharmaceutically refined nicotine, also referred
to as freebase nicotine thats extracted from
tobacco plants using chemical processes. The
final product is a distill of natural nicotine
and its 99.9 pure. The pharmaceutical-grade
nicotine is then blended with other liquid
concentrates (propylene glycol and/or vegetable
glycerin) and some flavorings to improve the
taste. So, whats the difference between
synthetic nicotine and tobacco-derived
nicotine? Today, a great percentage of vape
flavors are produced using tobacco-derived
nicotine. Besides, researchers have devised
methods of producing pure nicotine in
laboratories from non-tobacco products.
Synthetic nicotine, also referred to as
tobacco-free nicotine is a manmade replica of
ordinary nicotine thats derived from tobacco
products (stems, leaves, wastes, or extracts),
but its produced using chemicals. Biological
Characteristics Of Tobacco-Free
Nicotine Scientifically, tobacco-free nicotine
bears the same molecular formula (C10H14N2) as
tobacco-derived nicotine. Also, the two nicotine
types have a uniform set of advantages.
Regarding the chemical composition of both types
of nicotine, there is no difference. Essentially,
the two are much similar even in terms of
satisfaction levels. Their respective processes
of production are the only difference between the
two types of nicotine. By definition,
tobacco-free nicotine is produced using chemical
substances such as ethanol, sulphuric acid, and
niacin. Synthetic nicotine doesnt come with
nitrosamines that are contained in tobacco
nicotine. Nitrosamines are famously known for
creating unpleasant tastes (flavors) and some
level of harshness. To mask nitrosamines in poor-
quality tobacco-derived nicotine, vape flavor
producers use intense flavors and some types of
sweeteners. Advantages Of Tobacco-Free
Nicotine It offers an equal satisfaction level as
tobacco-derived nicotine Its tasteless and
odorless hence it doesnt interfere with vape
flavoring Its processed and produced using
certified ingredients with high pharmaceutical
quality Therere fewer marketing barriers and
restrictions Legislations Impacting
Tobacco-Free Nicotine At least there are no
restrictions regarding tobacco-free nicotine as
no formal regulations are prohibiting the
production and consumption of synthetic tobacco
products. According to Tobacco Control Act, all
products processed or extracted from tobacco and
meant for human consumption including all the
comments, parts, and/or accessories of tobacco
products are regarded as tobacco products. The
tobacco Act, being the definer of what tobacco
products are, excludes products that use
synthetic nicotine from the scope. Consequently,
the popularity of synthetic nicotine has risen
and the majority of vape flavors have embraced it
as it provides a solution to
Premarket Tobacco Product Application
regulations. Nevertheless, legislations
regarding tobacco-free nicotine are expected to
tighten once the product becomes more readily
accepted in the vaping market. Authorities across
the world, for instance, FDA are much aware of
the development. Is Tobacco-Free Nicotine Safe
For Human Consumption? Even though synthetic
nicotine might sound new, especially for newbies
and the non- vaping community, its been around
for quite some time. Vape flavor manufacturers
have been using this option to make their
products. Today, it appears like the industry has
embraced it and is making huge tides towards
fully actualizing it. Having said that, it does
not necessarily imply that everything about
synthetic nicotine is known. Education is
paramount to knowing how to make appropriate
decisions regarding your health. Particularly
when quitting a lousy habit, youll find it very
natural to understand the decision youve made
is the right choice, its effective, healthy, and
safe. While synthetic nicotine is accredited to
be purer than pharmaceutical grade nicotine,
truly, theres no authentic difference between
tobacco-free nicotine and traditional nicotine.
Whereas there might be some additives like
improved tastes, odorless, and tasteless
properties, overall, tobacco-free nicotine is as
much safe as ordinary tobacco- derived
nicotine. Essentially, its only produced using
chemical processes. For vapers seeking to reduce
their nicotine intake and ultimately cut their
association with tobacco, synthetic nicotine is
the real deal. Besides, its at the same level in
terms of safety as the regular nicotine theyve
been used to and delivers the same satisfaction
level tobacco-derived nicotine has. Also,
synthetic nicotine features a better flavor
profile than ordinary nicotine and its fully
free from disastrous effects associated with
tobacco products that vapers would want to
eliminate. Cost Of Production Tobacco-free
nicotine is costly to produce. Consequently, its
rarely a stimulant in the manufacture of vape
flavors. Comparing its cost of production with
that of tobacco- derived nicotine, the former is
steeply high. 1-liter of 100-mg of
tobacco-derived nicotine produces about
18,000-ml of 6 mg nicotine strength vape flavor
and costs about 100. On the other hand, 1-liter
of 100-mg of tobacco-free costs about 260. This
is because the process of production of
synthetic nicotine is way more costly compared to
extraction of free occurring nicotine in natural
nicotine. What The Future Holds
Right now, tobacco-free nicotine isnt regulated
by food and drug agencies as a drug, implying it
does not classify as a tobacco product. Some of
the manufacturers that were not accredited by
food and drug authorities to produce vaping
supplies have turned to use synthetic nicotine
as its not bound by the same authorization.
Anti-tobacco groups have been pushing for
authorities to make changes to regulations
regarding the consumption of synthetic
nicotine. In response, vaping advocates have,
however, castigated the efforts by these groups
and termed them as being misguided. They argued
(vaping advocates) that synthetic tobacco was
invented to get rid of various impurities
contained in natural nicotine, but not to
abscond regulations. They term it as a witch hunt
and an extension of the war on contrabands drugs
to nicotine, which isnt acceptable. Instead,
the advocates extend an olive branch to the
authorities to regulate all forms of nicotine
products and ensure they all comply with
marketing, promotion, and sale for personals of
not less than 21 years. Tobacco-derived
Nicotine Nicotine is a chemical stimulant that
occurs naturally in tobacco trees and tobacco-
derived nicotine is nicotine in its pure form.
When punches of tobacco-derived nicotine are
consumed, the chemical is absorbed into the
bloodstream and transported to the brain system.
The majority of users have a general which
contributes to seductive and stimulating
effects. Standalone nicotine isnt disastrous to
the body, but high concentrations of nicotine
induce side effects like nausea, headache,
drowsiness, fatigue, tremors, and
palpitations. To make it more potent, ammonia is
added to tobacco-derived nicotine to
create freebase nicotine. That way, pure
nicotine is made more effective and easily
absorbable in the body. The vast majority of
vape flavors in the industry contain freebase
nicotine. Whats The Difference Between
Synthetic Nicotine and Natural Nicotine?
Products processed from tobacco-free nicotine
arent alone in their eminent promotion and
marketing compared with products produced from
tobacco-derived nicotine. Some of the products
promoted as extracted from tobacco are Rogue
and Velo among others. The products arent
classified as synthetic nicotine products as they
use natural nicotine extracted from tobacco
plants. Nevertheless, they are promoted similarly
with tags like pure and clean which sometimes
cause mixed reactions among the
consumers. Therefore, synthetic nicotine
products are promoted as tobacco-free nicotine
products as they dont contain traces of a
tobacco plant. On the other hand, natural
nicotine products are regulated, promoted, and
marketed as tobacco products and drugs. Besides,
even though all these products may not seem all
that different (because they all contain
nicotine), there are regulated differently. The
regulation is done through varied regulatory
schemes depending on the source of the nicotine.
For instance, natural nicotine products are
regulated under the Center for Tobacco Products
whereas synthetic nicotine products are regarded
as drugs and regulated under the Center for Drug
Evaluation and Research where their safety and
effectiveness are analyzed. Conclusion Tobacco-fr
ee or synthetic nicotine could be the way to,
especially for small-scale manufacturers who
might have been denied accreditation from food
and drug authorities to manufacture vaping
products. For huge establishments and reputable
companies like Wotofo, synthetic nicotine
products can be a game-changer thanks to
increasingly growing popularity.
