What is an Electronic Cigarette (e-cigarette)?
An electronic cigarette (or “e-cigarette”) is an alternative to smoked tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. It is a battery-powered device that provides inhaled doses of nicotine by delivering a vaporized propylene glycol/nicotine solution. In addition to nicotine delivery, this vapor also provides a flavor and physical sensation similar to that of inhaled tobacco smoke, while no tobacco, smoke, or combustion is actually involved in its operation.

Are Electronic Cigarettes “fake?”
Electronic Cigarettes are not fake – they’re just different from what smokers and non-smokers are used to.

What is an “atomizer cartridge?” The Electronic Cigarettes atomizer cartridge looks like the filter of a tobacco cigarette. It contains the nicotine, flavoring, and water-gel, as well as an atomizer.

These studies alone cost nearly $5 million and take 4 years to complete, this action would increase our product cost ten fold. That’s not to say, however, that they can’t help you quit. Although Electronic Cigarettes products aren’t marketed or sold as smoking cessation devices, you could try staging yourself down from the higher nicotine-strength cartridges to lower nicotine cartridges – and eventually to the zero-strength cartridge.
Outside of the U.S., many countries with Universal Healthcare have eliminated nicotine patches, gums, and sprays, and have opted for electronic cigarettes for smoking cessation.
