Based on the 12 green chemistry principles (Minimizing the economic, social and environmental footprint – Futura Sciences), our engineering team came up with an innovative method to extract nicotine from tobacco leaves. Our nicotine, important component for vapers, is said to be ‘vaping-grade’ for its safe inhalation properties. It is nicotine made by vaping, for vaping!
Nicotine is molecule naturally present in tobacco leaves. From the alkaloids group, it is a stimulant, non-carcinogenic but toxic in large doses and capable of generating strong dependence in the case of regular consumption.
In a cigarette, the danger is the combustion and not the mere presence of nicotine. In an e-liquid, nicotine enhances the “hit” sensation (contraction of the pharynx during the passage of the vapour), craved by smokers.
